Quick News

Husband and wife duo, Tennis will release a new album this spring. The record still is untitled, but is the follow-up to their Patrick Carney produced 2012 LP, Young and Old.

As we wait for the fourth Horrors album, band member Tom Furse spoke to NME about how the record has evolved and how it has evolved the band in sound. He said, "I don't know if every time we've made an album it's been hard and over time I've just erased the majority of the bad stuff but this one took some serious effort to get finished and it was tough," he says. "It was sometimes delirious fun and other times quite painful. I think it's our best effort so far, every song has something special going for it. The songwriting has taken a step up so I think you can expect a bit more coherence, and a fair few unexpected turns. I don't want to say too much as we've done a good job of keeping stuff under wraps. It's definitely a step up."

After working with Paul Thomas Anderson for the score to both There Will Be Blood and The Master, it is being reported that Radiohead's Johnny Greenwood will link up with the Oscar nominated director to score his latest film, Inherit Vice.

One of the most fascinating and incredible pieces of news today is that Earl Sweatshirt, King Krule, Warpaint, and Jagwar Ma are all in an Australian studio together working on material with each other. No word as to what the project is for or about, but this is something to keep an eye on!

Before they took the stage with Madonna at Barclays Center on Tuesday night for the Amnesty International Human Rights Home Concert, Pussy Riot declaired in a statement on their website that the recently freed members, Nadia Tolokonnikova and Masha Alyokhina are no longer members of the all women punk band. The still anonymous remaining members of Pussy Riot denounced the women's focus on Russian jail reform and appearing at the concert.
