According to sources, Stefani, 44, and No Doubt, the band she fronts, were being courted by multiple managers before inking with Azoff.

This week's Free Music Wednesday showcases an innovator in the world of yoga, meditation, and the healing arts. East Forest’s Trevor Oswalt has created a new type of aural experience using music as a “technology,” combining modern scientific sound healing knowledge with the organic field recordings of people and places he encounters along the way — a way that can intentionally facilitate a heightened odyssey of body, mind, and spirit.

Reminiscent of Sigur Rós, Balmorhea, Ólafur Arnalds or The Album Leaf, his music weaves ethereal soundscapes from his vintage keys, intimate vocals, and original field recordings. Listen to the blissful, gentle and uplifting Prana EP, and download...

Between the Buried and Me won't be playing anything pre-Colors anymore.
Yeah it has a special place in my heart as well but the reality is that most of our fans came on board with Colors or maybe Alaska so we have to cater to that, unfortunately. We would like to play some old stuff but the fact of the matter is that most people have never heard it, don’t care, and don’t know what it is.

Update: The band posted the following statement on their Facebook page:
We are an active band and we continue to write new music. As this happens, older material begins to become less relevant to what we are currently doing. If you've seen us multiple times over the last 4 or 5 years, you've probably...

We've been a band for almost twelve years, played on five continents and never had to sell tickets to play a show. You don't either.

Lucky Boys Confusion are working on an EP.
So, my June is filled with shows, writing, rehearsing and recording - I'm exhausted all the time but loving it! It's what I was born to do! After this grueling month, it looks like I'm going to have a pretty relaxed and awesome July. Amongst many other fun events, like Punk Rock Lakehouse and playing Q Bar in Darien - July 26th SHFC plays with the Gin Blossoms at Taste of Lincoln and the day after Ill be lounging on a Lazy River drinking, catching some sun and working on a much needed tan!! Then it's back to grind in August - finishing up the LBC EP and getting in shape for my September vacation! Loving life!

A reddit user going by andrewmn8 who says he exepriences chromesthesia (a variant of synesthesia where a person experiences visual representations of sound) has put his sights to paper. He drew representations of what he sees while listening to "Get Lucky" and "Gangnam Style," among four others. Check out the relatively crude yet interesting paintings in the replies, and maybe submit a song for him to paint in the future.

In a new interview, Mike Einziger revealed that he and Brandon Boyd have been secretly working on new Incubus material. Although that doesn't mean anyone should get their hopes up any time soon.
That doesn’t mean that stuff will be coming anytime soon. Though content has come from the sessions, much of it is in its infancy in terms of development; “They’re ideas but some are further along than others,” Einziger said.

Kerrang! is putting out this American Idiot cover album because this is something that we need and they asked Falling In Reverse to cover "She's A Rebel." Do yourself a favor and listen (in the replies) from 0:50 to 1:15. It is a massive stretch to call this a "tribute album."
