I think we finally figured out the method that works for our band. There’s five completely different people in our band that have completely different writing styles. On Rise, we really honed it in.

Hit the replies to listen to another new track from alt-J's forthcoming album, This Is All Yours. Read what the band had to say about the track "Left Hand Free" below too:
Speaking about the new track, they have called it "the least Alt-J song ever", written to appease their American label who didn't think the recently released 'Hunger Of The Pine' was a "big single". Discussing 'Left Hand Free' in The Guardian, they say the song was written in 20 minutes and is based around a "joke riff" that frontman Joe Newman started playing one day.
Drummer Thom Green says of the track: "I tried to make the drums as cliched as possible, there's none of my personality in it". Newman adds:...
This past Saturday, I got to see Brand New put on one hell of a set on their summer run with Into It. Over It. and Dinosaur Pile-Up at The Pageant in St. Louis. Hit the replies to read the full review of the show.
Unlike most bands that take their sweet time between releases and tours, Brand New never seem to run the risk of fading into irrelevancy, it just makes their fans hungrier.

Jump to the replies to watch a hilarious video that pretty much sums up most of our lives working in the music industy.

I write songs for people via this website Downwrite. I wrote this one at the request of a wonderful guy named Brandon for his wife Kathy. The song tells the story of their intercontinental struggle for love, as told through some of their favorite TV characters. Shout out to Walter White.
David Gilmour's wife Polly Samson saysPink Floyd will release a new album titled The Endless River on October. Recording originally began during recording sessions for 1994's The Division Bell but was recently reworked. No word on if Roger Waters will be involved, but it seems unlikely.
Btw Pink Floyd album out in October is called "The Endless River". Based on 1994 sessions is Rick Wright's swansong and very beautiful.

Blink-182's Travis Barker recently got his Rolls-Royce Wraith "murdered out." I'm no where near cool enough to know what that phrase means, but there's a photo over here of a car I'd be afraid to breathe on for fear of scratching it. Some more of his collection can be seen here.

I think it requires more work, but it always should have required more work. There was a brief period of time around a century long when the music industry got involved and figured out how to cater to the laziness of musicians. And we are innately lazy because we’re artists. There are people who work nine to five jobs thanklessly and don’t complain about it ever, and then there’s musicians, a lot of whom are receiving these giant advances from multi-conglomerate companies and essentially getting smoke blown up their ass and they feel like they’re the new Beatles, or at least trying to achieve that.
Listen to Max Bemis of Say Anything discussing "Push," "The Shape Of Love To Come," and "Boyd" off Hebrews below via PropertyOfZack.

It’s with great regret that we announce the departure of Tim Arnold. We part as nothing but the best of friends and wish nothing but the best for him. This has been a difficult and mutual decision, largely based on Tim’s recent move to Atlanta in order to start a family.
Good Old War is currently in midst of making what we think is our most exciting album to date, including some songs that Tim has written with us. We’ll be recording them in Nashville next month and will soon announce a Pledge campaign, where we hope to let you in on the making of the album, every step of the way. We hope to be on...
