Thursday took to Facebook to post that they will be touring later this year and then eventually head to Europe, however, the post-hardcore icons from New Jersey, who reunited last year, said that they don't know how much longer this will go on. " The problem with nostalgia, and memory in general, is that it's a destructive process. Much like recording over the same cassette, again and again, the quality degrades with each pass. Put in a modern way, our memory is like a hard drive: the more you try to fit on it, the further it compresses, lowering the quality of the new memory and the original experience, too," they wrote in a statement. "Rather than endlessly overwriting the original experiences that we shared with so many of you, we've been discussing how and when to wrap up this trip down memory lane. In the next year, we'll be announcing our international tours as well as a final group of dates in the US, that will be totally unlike anything we've ever attempted to do. Beyond that, we will only return in the event of new music. And new music will only come if we feel it's truly inspired and adds a new dimension to the band. In our humble opinions, there are only a few bands that have put out records worth coming back for. Bands like Portishead and MBV."
U2 are getting their own museum in their hometown of Dublin, Ireland. The proposed four-story building will be on the site of their early recording studio at Windmill Lane. It is unclear as to when the museum, which has been trying to get off the ground since 2002, will open.
Rolling Stones guitarist Ron Wood has opened up to The Mail and said that he underwent secret cancer treatment in his lungs earlier this year. Wood, 70, said the cancer was like “a supernova burning away on my left lung… He asked me what I wanted to do and my answer was simple: ‘Just get it out of me.’” Only his closest friends, bandmates and family knew he was battling the disease. He assures fans he is clear now and will resume his role in the group.
Black Grape, a band that features Shaun Ryder of Happy Mondays and Ruthless Rap Assassins’ member, Kermit, will release their first album in over 20 years and will release Pop Voodoo later this year.
