Kent, England based duo Slaves (no, not the Jonny Craig lot) performed their new single "HEY" last night on Later Live...with Jools Holland. The episode featured a line up consisting of Interpol, U2, Zola Jesus, Sam Smith and more but the newest band on the bill absolutely tore it up. Head to the replies to watch the performance. They are also about to head out on tour with Jamie T across the UK.
It is with heavy hearts that today we announce the departure of Ryland & Alex from Cobra Starship. Below you will find a letter from them explaining their reasons. Although we were bummed when they first told us, Nate, Victoria and I love Cobras too much to not move forward. Not only because of what this band means to us, but also because of what Cobras stands for: To never give up, to never say die. And though Alex & Ryland will no longer be a part of the band, they will always be a part of the crew and will always be like family to us, and hopefully to you.

In fact, we have to talk about how itís gonna look. In 2014, how you release music is extremely different than ten years ago and almost a year ago. These days, a lot of people just put it on Youtube [laughs], thatís all they have to do. If thereís any musicians out there, speaking of that, retaining the masters is a really good thing, you know? There was a time when you didnít feel like you were legitimate unless you were on a record label, but these days, itís very easy to get your music out there and you own the rights to it. Thatís a really good thing for a musician when musicians have been shit upon for the last decade and a half...
How much do you hate yourself? Attila's new song "Proving Grounds" is in the replies and it's been submitted by a bunch of people ... I'm assuming as a joke, because there's nothing funnier than this band.
Yeah thatís actually in the plans right now. Weíre going to try some from this album and all the albums really and put together some sort of acoustic release out of it. We donít have a timeline exactly but probably the next thing on our agenda before writing our new album.
I'm incredibly excited to share a brand new track from The Classic Crime...well, a old song revisited anyways. "The Coldest Heart" first appeared on the band's debut album, Albatross, and now they've revisited it for What Was Done Vol I, a collection of revisited and acoustic songs from the band's incredible collection of songs over the past decade. If you liked the song, you can pre-order the album here - What Was Done Vol. I comes out on October 27th via Bad Christian. Hit the replies to check out "The Coldest Heart".
Today we have an exclusive video premiere from San Antonio, TX trio Vetter Kids. The video is titled "Chlorine Dream" and is the opening cut of Logan, the band's new EP which is available now. Check it out in the replies.
Cold Fronts released a new song called "Hit Me" on Earmilk. You can stream the song in the replies. The band's upcoming EP Forever is set to be released November 4th on Sire Records. It is available for pre-order on iTunes.
Northernmost are self-releasing their new EP, Culprit, on November 4th. We are premiering a new song called "All Smiles," which you can hear in the replies. The song draws a lot of evident influences from Balance & Composure.
