The Fall had to cancel a rare U.S. tour which was set to kick-off next month because singer Mark E. Smith was recently hospitalized. In a statement the band said: "nfortunately it would be a gamble on his health to fly anywhere over the next couple of months. Mark’s current problems are connected to his throat, mouth/dental & respiratory system… so throwing all the meds together and continuing with the travel/shows would certainly harm any progress that we have made over the past few weeks. We understand that this is a huge deal for both American/worldwide fans of The Fall and The Fall themselves, Mark & the guys have been really excited and everyone is gutted about the outcome. However, it’s high-time Mark put his health first and that’s what we are gonna do."
NERD have cleared their social media accounts leading to speculation that a new album is on the way. If so, it would be the group's first in seven years. They recently announced that they will perform at Complex Con in L.A. this fall -- their first performance as a group in three years.
Ice-T and Soledad O'Brien will explore the deaths of Tupac Shakur and the Notorious BIG in a new Fox documentary called Who Shot Biggie & Tupac?, airing next month.
