This Day & Age's new album, The Bell and The Hammer, will hit shelves in less than two weeks. You can currently stream half of the album on their PureVolume, which I highly recommend you do so you can get a glimpse into this great disc. Make sure you help the band out and buy your own personal copy (and maybe some extras for some relatives or friends) when it's released; you don't want to miss one of the albums that is for sure going to fall into my Top 10 of 2006.
The other Rilo Kiley side project, Blake Sennett's The Elected also have new tour dates which can be found below. They have also updated their store with a new t-shirt and their website with new promotional photos and the tracklisting to their sophomore record Sun, Sun, Sun.
