The UK's venerable rock magazine NME announced that it will be offering its magazine as a free weekly edition starting in September. NME has seen its readership decline year after year, so this should at the very least grab some old fans back into the magazine fray.
The new free magazine launches on September 18 in the UK. As I type this, some of the NME team are locked away in a dark basement in NME Towers working on even more ideas to make sure itís not only a brilliant magazine, but that it gives you everything you asked us for. Iím confident that it will.

The band were unable to be at the event so recorded a video message which sees them declare that they will be headlining Glastonbury this year.

According to NME, Blink-182 will be releasing a new album in the late spring/early summer of 2014. Mark Hoppus recently talked to Kerrang! and noted that the band is hoping to head into the studio at the start of next year and hopefully release the new LP shortly after.
"We haven't thought about any new songs yet," said Hoppus, but explained that the band will write the new album when they reconvene in the studio. "It always happens when the three of us are together in a room," said Hoppus of writing. "Because when [we're not touring], Tom lives in San Diego, Travis lives in Los Angeles and I live in London, so we don't really talk all that much. But then when we get in a room...

Speaking to Kerrang! recently, Daryl Palumbo has said that he doubts Glassjaw will ever release a third full-length album.
From the InterviewPeople are so hung up on us not having a full-length out that they're overlooking the fact that record labels are becoming increasingly irrelevant, that full-length records are becoming irrelevant and the whole album/tour cycle is pretty irrelevant.
