Emery will launch a crowdfunding campaign for their new album, You Were Never Alone, next week. If you sign up for their mailing list, you'll get a free download of a new song.
It's been almost 11 years since we released 'The Weak's End.' That's a little hard to believe for us! In that time, we have seen more success than we could have possibly dreamed. We toured the world, created five more albums, and had the privilege of meeting and getting to know a ton of you along the way. You have never left us. As we came up with what we wanted to say here, it almost brought us to tears. We really were never alone. You are Emery. And you are the reason that we are still here, and why our...

The 1975 were guests on the BBC Radio 1 Breakfast Show this morning and took part in the "Call or Delete" prank phonecall game.

Read our write up of the 3/23 Austin stop of La Dispute's "Rooms of the House" Tour with Pianos Become The Teeth and Mansions.
For the first time, I’m actually having a fairly hard time describing exactly what made this night and show so intense for me – aside form just the nature and content of the music, that is. Maybe it was the weather. Maybe it was that my hoodie wasn’t quite warm enough. Maybe it’s because I was at the show alone, which is rare. Whatever the reason, everything added up and the intensity and show just clicked. No matter what band you’re a fan of or what album or song catches your ear most, definitely go see this show if it comes near you.

Wu-Tang Clan have a characteristically bonkers way of releasing their other new album this summer, Once Upon A Time In Shaolin. Via AV Club.
...The sole copy of Once Upon A Time In Shaolin will be encased inside an engraved silver-and-nickel box designed by British-Moroccan artist Yahya, then taken on a tour through museums, art galleries, and festivals. There—and only there—visitors will be able to listen to all 128 minutes of its 31 songs on headphones, and only after enduring a rigorous security check to eliminate the risk of any recording devices.

Chris Martin (Coldplay) and wife Gwyneth Paltrow will be "consciously uncoupling."
It is with hearts full of sadness that we have decided to separate. We have been working hard for well over a year, some of it together, some of it separated, to see what might have been possible between us, and we have come to the conclusion that while we love each other very much we will remain separate. We are, however, and always will be a family, and in many ways we are closer than we have ever been. We are parents first and foremost, to two incredibly wonderful children and we ask for their and our space and privacy to be respected at this difficult time. We have always conducted our relationship...

Fourtitude answered our interview; here's their response.
I honestly had no clue there actually was a Radical Records, and I was amused to receive a cease and desist notification from their legal team. Apparently they didn’t want anybody to be confused into thinking they were in any way associated with my terrible rap music - I can’t say I blame them.

Facebook has purchased Oculus Rift for $2 billion.
The acquisition of Oculus seemingly comes out of nowhere: the company just demoed its most recent version of the Oculus Rift development kit at GDC 2014 to much fanfare. Oculus has been steadily moving towards a consumer product, and Facebook's resources can only help to push that mission along. "Facebook understands the potential for VR," the Oculus team wrote in its own blog post announcing the deal. "Mark and his team share our vision for virtual reality’s potential to transform the way we learn, share, play, and communicate. Facebook is a company that believes that anything is possible with the right group of people, and we couldn’t...

Owen Pallett has attempted to use music theory to explain the genius of Katy Perry.
Let’s start by talking about the ingenuity of the harmonic content. This song is all about suspension—not in the voice-leading 4–3 sense, but in the emotional sense, which listeners often associate with “exhilaration,” being on the road, being on a roller coaster, travel. This sense of suspension is created simply, by denying the listener any I chords. There is not a single I chord in the song. Laymen, the I chord (“one chord”) is the chord that the key is in. That is, the song is in G but there are no G-chords. Other examples of this, in hit singles: Fleetwood Mac’s “Dreams” and Stardust’s “Music Sounds...

Watch Fireworks' new video for "Glowing Crosses" in the replies. Oh, Common Life is out now.
My parents were only teenagers at the time of the Detroit riots in 1967, yet they can still perfectly describe the desolation and eerie silence those riots brought. The only light came from the glowing cross hanging on the side of the hospital, lighting up the front lawns of all the houses in the neighborhood. Although it didn't really mean anything, knowing that people thought it did was kind of powerful on it's own.

Gordon Skene has left Frightened Rabbit.
We are sad to announce that Gordon is no longer a member of Frightened Rabbit. For 3 years he was a vital part of the band and his contribution to Pedestrian Verse was massive in making what we believe to be our best record yet. There is no more to tell other than sometimes things just don't work out and when people have differing opinions often the best option is to simply part ways and get on with life separately. We wish Gordon all the best in whatever he decides to do and are sure that whatever he does next will be as much fun and as successful as his time in FR.

Scott, Andy, Grant and Billy x
