Itís with a heavy heart that we must announce that weíre pulling off theOfficialFinch/Maps & Atlases tour. For us itís a double-edged sword because the only way we could have possibly been kept from this tour is health and unfortunately thatís still the issue we face. Brian has been in and out of facilities since we returned in early August and unfortunately the symptoms he encountered back on tour continue to plague him. Weíd like to extend a huge apology to Finch, Maps & Atlases, all the fans and promoters, and anyone else affected by our cancellation. We believe more that anyone that the show must go on, but we simply cannot tour...

Hit the replies to watch The Replacements make their first television appearance in twenty-five years, performing the classic track "Alex Chilton" on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. This also marks their return to NBC after being banned from Saturday Night Live following a hilariously drunken performance on the show in 1986.
When that changed, and I was able to transition from part-timing to earning a living playing music, my fear of a life spent running face-first into an endless succession of self-constructed brick walls eventually straightened me out. This was a slow-dawning stroke of luck, because sober senses would be required to navigate an insane industry that was rapidly changing, too. Anyone I knew who was ďjustĒ a musician was predominantly maintaining that title by busting their ass on tour, selling their songs to car commercials or some combination thereof.

alt-J has made their new album, This Is All Yours, available for streaming ahead of its release via an official app. Once you download the app it finds "blast areas" near you via Google maps, which are locations where you can go and stream the album in full via the app itself and potentially meet up with other fans to do the same thing. The app is, however, only available in the UK and has more and more locations across the country being added over the next few days, starting today with public parks.
