The stench coming from the man’s bedroom is nearly unbearable. Newspaper clippings and “toys” litter the crimson-splotched hardwood floor. Fourth girl this week. Her name was Candy and she was stabbed in the face, forty-seven times.

Fire When Ready will be going on an "indefinite hiatus." Read a message from the band below.
Message From Fire When ReadyWe have decided to put Fire When Ready on an indefinite hiatus. This decision has been in our heads, both on and off, for the last few months. I want to try and help you understand why. This is almost totally a musical decision. We have been working on writing a new album for you guys for almost a year. After writing bits and pieces of around 13 songs, we found out that it was impossible to make these songs Fire When Ready songs. Really the simple fact is that Fire When Ready hit a brick wall. It was inevitable and we take comfort in that. Recently the four...

I highly suggest you check out New London Fire; they were named one of Alt Press' Top 100 Bands to Take Over In '06. Just the song "Different" alone should be enough new-wave sexy goodness to hook you. Their debut album is due out on Eyeball Records in 2006. I for one can't wait.

As Frank reported last week, The Militia Group has signed The Holy Fire. Below is the official press release:
TMG Press ReleaseDetroit, MI. – Edgy, aggressive indie rock act The Holy Fire, described by Detroit Metrotimes as "In between Afghan Whigs murder epics and Jeff Buckley melodrama,” sign with independent label The Militia Group. Drawing forth angular, driving rhythms, accompanied by passion and melody, The Holy Fire are quickened by improvisation, anti-social vigor, beauty, and even paranoia. The Holy Fire recently toured with The Constantines, and have also played with fellow enigmatic indie rockers Mclusky and TV On The Radio.

The Holy Fire team up with The Militia Group...

The Arcade Fire will begin recording their new album this month. They bought a church and converted it into a studio for the process. It appears we'll have to wait until fall for the release, though.
