PAUL McCARTNEY TO RELEASE ALL-NEW DOUBLE A-SIDE SINGLE

“I DON’T KNOW”/“COME ON TO ME”

AVAILABLE WEDNESDAY, JUNE 20th on CAPITOL RECORDS

Following a whirlwind week that saw his Instagram presence rebooted as he played one of the most intimate gigs of his storied career, Paul McCartney is done keeping the world in suspense: “I Don’t Know” and “Come On To Me,” will be released tomorrow as a double A-Side single.

The first tastes of Paul’s brand new studio album due out later this year on Capitol Records, the two A-sides are polar opposites: “I Don’t Know” being a plaintive, soul-soothing ballad as only Paul can deliver, and “Come On To Me” a raucous stomper that fans that first spark of chemistry into a rocking blaze.

Worldwide speculation about a new Paul McCartney album instantly reached fever pitch as his Instagram account whited out last week—only to ratchet higher as Paul was spotted taking selfies at landmarks in Liverpool the same day. The evening’s climactic event was a surprise gig at the tiny Liverpool Philharmonic Pub, during which “Come On To Me” made its live debut alongside a set of classics spanning Paul’s career.

Paul’s new album is slated for Fall 2018 release on Capitol Records. Further details will be announced shortly.

ARCADE FIRE

“CHEMISTRY”

NEW VIDEO LIVE NOW 

Directed by Ray Tintori and Animated by Starburns Industries

Arcade Fire has unveiled a new animated video for “Chemistry,” from the international #1 album Everything Now.

Directed by Ray Tintori, animated by Starburns Industries (Rick & Morty, Charlie Kaufman’s Anomalisa, Community) and featuring Tootie Tootz of Big Freedia: Queen of Bounce fame, “Chemistry” expands on the song’s theme of chemical attraction, turning it into a cartoon about a dog and cat who meet and fall in love at her wedding reception, where he is working as a caterer, and she is marrying a shark.

Collaborating with Tintori–whose work ranges from videos for MGMT, Chairlift, and Moses Sumney to creating the debut film for Google’s Tilt Brush and the Aurochs sequences for Beasts of the Southern Wild — has been on Win Butler of Arcade Fire’s mind for years: “We’ve been big fans of Ray’s work since his early videos and there was talk of collaborating during The Suburbs shoot–we were going to film it in New Orleans but then it got moved to Austin at the last minute, and Ray was caught up working on Beasts of the Southern Wild. So it was very full circle to finally be working with him in New Orleans during Mardi Gras. There is a playful, carnivalesque energy to the song; to capture that by filming literally during carnival felt right.”

While the core “Chemistry” story is of an animated dog and cat (played by Ms. Tootz) meeting at her wedding reception where the dog is working as a caterer, the animated characters travel to space at one point, and after destroying the International Space Station, land back on Earth, finding themselves in the midst of the Fat Tuesday in the Bywater neighborhood of New Orleans.

Arcade Fire resume their Everything Now Continued world tour tonight at Ahoy in Rotterdam, NL. See below for a full itinerary of the tour, which runs through September 23 where it concludes at the Life Is Beautiful festival in Las Vegas.

SPIRITUALIZED

AND NOTHING HURT

NEW ALBUM OUT SEPTEMBER 7th ON FAT POSSUM

First Single “A Perfect Miracle” Streaming HERE
Video for “I’m Your Man” Viewable HERE

Spiritualized have announced news of their new studio album, And Nothing Hurt, out September 7th via Fat Possum in the US and Bella Union in the UK/Europe. Preorders are live now along with two tracks:  First single “A Perfect Miracle” and album track “I’m Your Man,” the video of which can be viewed here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4vNrHoLS1zc.

Spiritualized have also announced select live performances in support of the album, including two U.S. dates:

Thu Oct 11 – Brooklyn NY at Kings Theatre
http://www.kingstheatre.com/
Tue Oct 16 – Los Angeles CA at The Orpheum Theatre
http://laorpheum.com/

From the opening lullaby of “A Perfect Miracle” through to the Morse Code fadeout at the close of “Sail on Through,” Spiritualized wrap layer upon layer of gloriously transcendent sound together to create a mesmerizing and cinematic collection of songs.

There are points where the waves of blissful noise are almost overwhelming – the thunderous climax of “On the Sunshine”; the spectral waltz of “The Prize”; the towering guitar solo on “I’m Your Man” – where one can imagine the studio’s speakers vibrating themselves off of the walls. Which is an incredible feat when you discover that the album was conceived and recorded almost entirely by one man – Jason Pierce, AKA J.Spaceman – in an upstairs room in his east London home. Sat in an edit suite in Whitechapel a month or so after finishing recording, Jason talks honestly about the painstaking, frustrating process of creating And Nothing Hurt.

“Making this record on my own sent me more mad than anything I’ve done before. We’d been playing these big shows and I really wanted to capture that sound we were making, but without having the funds to do so, I had to find a way to work within the constraints of what money I had. So I bought a laptop and made it all in a little room in my house.”

Whereas bedroom recording is commonplace for a generation of musicians who’ve grown up with horizon-expanding tech, Spiritualized have long used the studio as they would an extra member of the band – as a vital building block in the construction of some of the most cherished records of the modern era. This time would be very different. With no grounding in digital recording, Jason had to learn everything from scratch.

“The biggest thing for me was to try to make it sound like a studio session. But I was new to it all, I didn’t have all the short cuts people use as when they’re making records – I just sat there for weeks… for months… moving every level up bit by bit just to try to get the sounds right.”

(photo credit Juliette Larthe)

For the listener, the nine tracks on And Nothing Hurt effortlessly replicate the scale and power of Spiritualized’s previous releases, whether it’s the sonic blowback of “On the Sunshine,” the last dime in the jukebox love letter of “Let’s Dance” or the swell of an imaginary orchestra that seems to lift “Damaged” towards the heavens as it plays out.

“With a bit of trial and lot of error, I found ways of doing something that’s quite simple if you’ve got the resources. I spent two weeks listening to classical records and strumming the chord that I wanted on my guitar. When I found something to match what I wanted, I’d sample that bit and go for the next chord and try to match that. It took weeks, trying to put together and layer convincing string sounds. But, if I’m honest, all I wanted was for someone to come and play the part and bring their own thing to the record”

Lyrically, And Nothing Hurt touches on thoughts of passing time and acceptance of one’s age – never more beautifully than on “Let’s Dance.” “I didn’t want to be fighting against my age; it’s very much about acceptance. And not with any dissatisfaction either – I’m not raging against the inevitable. I spent a lot of time thinking about the way that the songs should hold together, trying to make the narratives make sense rather than just throwing together a couple of lines that rhymed.”

During the making of And Nothing Hurt, Jason kept returning to the thought that this would be the last Spiritualized record – interviews over the last couple of years made it clear that the frustration of trying to replicate the sounds in his head were proving too much. With the record finally finished, does he feel the same way now?

“I was quite sincere about that and I still feel like it might be the case. It was such hard work. I found myself going crazy for so long. It’s not like there’s no coming back, I’m fine now… it’s just such a hard thing to do, to make a record like this on your own. It’s almost as if, if I’m not pushing myself to point of madness, it’s not going to be right. I think the biggest goal is to make something that’s worthy of all that time and effort. And the more time and effort, the bigger the goal. I knew I had to make something that was good enough that it should be made. And a massive positive about making the record is that we get to play it live. That’s always the most joyous thing; this amazing thing that seems to come right through the roof.”

And Nothing Hurt will be released September 7th via Fat Possum. Album artwork and tracklisting below:

And Nothing Hurt tracklist:

1. A Perfect Miracle

BECK + U2 =

“Love Is Bigger Than Anything In Its Way (Beck Remix)”

LISTEN HERE: https://u2.lnk.to/BeckRmxPR

Beck has reunited with U2 to remix another track from the band’s international #1 album, Songs of Experience (Interscope). This time, current single “Love Is Bigger Than Anything In Its Way” gets the Beck remix treatment, as the GRAMMY Album of the Year winning musician pulls from his palette of sonic colors to emphasize the organic foundations underpinning its soaring harmonies.

“Love Is Bigger Than Anything In Its Way” comes from the critically acclaimed, Songs Of Experience,called “Their best album in years” by USA Today and “a remarkable accomplishment for a band in its fifth decade of existence” by Variety.

Beck previously collaborated with U2 on an exclusive remix of “Lights of Home (Free Yourself/Beck Remix),” released to mark Record Store Day earlier this year. Prior to the release of his critically acclaimed Colors (Capitol), Beck supported U2 on the final U.S. leg of last year’s #1 grossing tour, The Joshua Tree Tour 2017.

U2 is currently in the midst of the groundbreaking eXPERIENCE + iNNOCENCE Tour, whose May 2nddebut in Tulsa, OK moved Rolling Stone to rave “after this incredible opening night almost anything feels possible.” During the tour’s swing through Nashville, U2 became the first act in the history of Jack White’s Third Man Records to record a single directly to acetate: a stripped-down acoustic version of “Love Is Bigger Than Anything in Its Way,” to be released by Third Man Records on limited edition vinyl.

OCTOBER 20th AT PICO RIVERA SPORTS ARENA & GROUNDS IN LOS ANGELES

Plus North American Arena Dates Confirmed in New York, Chicago, Philadelphia, Boston, Toronto and Montreal

The Internet to Support on All Headline Dates Except Boston; Little Dragon to Support in Boston

TICKETS ON SALE TO PUBLIC STARTING FRIDAY, JUNE 8th at 10am PST

A brand new studio album from Gorillaz titled The Now Now will be released by Warner Bros. Records on June 29th, and is available for pre-order now with two instant great songs, “Humility” and “Lake Zurich.”

The Now Now is 11 all-new songs from the World’s Most Successful Virtual Act*, produced by Gorillaz, with James Ford and Remi Kabaka, and recorded entirely at Studio 13, London in February this year.

In contrast to the cast of characters that joined the apocalyptic party thrown by Damon Albarn and his cartoon crew on last year’s multiple-GRAMMY-nominated HUMANZ , The Now Now sees the band largely eschewing guest stars, taking it back to the core Gorillaz crew: blue-haired, sweet-natured dreamer 2D on vocals;  whip-smart Japanese badass Noodle on guitar; Brooklyn-born philosopher and the meat–behind-the-beat Russel Hobbs on drums. And with Murdoc Niccals temporarily indisposed, bass duties on the new album have been taken up by erstwhile Gangreen Gang member Ace (explaining the “FREE MURDOC” signage that’s been popping up everywhere from Coachella to the Kentucky Derby to Change.org and Reddit).

A sun-drenched new video for “Humility”—the single premiered today on Zane Lowe’s WORLD RECORD on Beats 1 on Apple Music–starring a roller-skating 2D and a busking Jack Black, was directed by Gorillaz co-founder Jamie Hewlett and filmed entirely in Venice Beach, California last month – watch it here.

Gorillaz also announced they will bring The Now Now Tour to North America this fall, produced by Live Nation, and culminating in the U.S. debut of Gorillaz’ own acclaimed Demon Dayz Festival. The “joyful apocalypse… and carnivalesque festival of great performances” (The Guardian)” curated by Damon Albarn and Jamie Hewlett, promoted and produced by Live Nation – will make its exclusive appearancefor this year at the Pico Rivera Sports Arena & Grounds in Los Angeles on October 20th, just 10 minutes from downtown L.A.

The Demon Dayz L.A. lineup will be comprised of special guests and collaborators from within and beyond the Gorillaz extended family. Information on ticket sales and additional attractions will be announced shortly.

See below for The Now Now Tour itinerary which will kick off October 8 in Toronto, ON and make stops in Montreal, Philadelphia, New York, Boston and Chicago. The Internet will support on all headline dates, with Little Dragon joining as special guest for the Boston show. Tickets for all dates will go on sale to the general public beginning Friday, June 8th at 10am PST at Ticketmaster.com. American Express® Card Members can purchase tickets before the general public in the U.S., beginning Friday, June 1 at 10am local through Thursday, June 7 at 10pm local and in Canada, beginning Monday, June 4 at 12pm local through Thursday, June 7 at 12pm local.

The Now Now is available as a single CD, vinyl, at all global digital partners, and as a collector’s edition Deluxe Vinyl LP Box Set

Track listing for The Now Now is:

  1. Humility – feat George Benson
  2. Tranz
  3. Hollywood – feat Snoop Dogg + Jamie Principle
  4. Kansas
  5. Sorcererz
  6. Idaho

Cal Jam 18 Announces Line-up; Foo Fighters Return As Headliners And Curators Of Cal Jam 18

JOINED BY EXCLUSIVE REUNION OF IGGY POP WITH POST POP DEPRESSION, TENACIOUS D, GARBAGE, GRETA VAN FLEET, SILVERSUN PICKUPS AND MANY MORE, PLUS CARNIVAL RIDES, WATER PARK, ROCK-N-ROLL MUSEUM

FRIDAY NIGHT PARTY WITH BILLY IDOL, BRIDGET EVERETT, MEXRRISSEY & OTHERS TBA

OCTOBER 5-6, 2018 AT GLEN HELEN REGIONAL PARK

TICKETS ON SALE THIS THURSDAY AT 10AM PST

A year after the legendary debut weekend from which 30,000+ true rock believers have barely recovered… Cal Jam 18 is back for another weekend of joyful rock-n-roll abandon featuring 20+ bands on four stages this October 5-6, 2018. Promoted by Live Nation, the festival returns to Glen Helen Regional Park and Amphitheater in San Bernardino, CA, for an even more monolithic second incarnation of what the Los Angeles Times cited as the reason fans “come to music festivals: to feel connection and catharsis.”

Today, the festival has announced its guitars, guitars and more guitars lineup with Foo Fighters back as headliners and curators, and another once in a lifetime bill that proves that rock-n-roll is alive and well in California. The good times come at the affordable price of $99 (plus taxes and fees) for one day GA. This year, Saturday ticket holders have the option to buy a Friday night ticket for $30 (plus taxes and fees). All camping packages include free entrance to the Friday night Party.  Tickets and camping packages go on sale this Thursday, May 17th at 10AM PST. Visit www.caljamfest.com and www.LiveNation.com for more information.

The good times begin with the Friday night party on October 5th, where those with camping passes and Friday night tickets will be invited to kick off the festival with 80s punk legend Billy Idol. Also on the bill is Bridget Everett, the comedian who Jerry Seinfeld called, “one of the greatest live performers I have ever seen in my life,” and Mexico City’sMexrrissey, performing their set of Smiths and Morrissey cover songs in Spanish, plus so much more. Friday night attendees will also have first crack at the carnival rides and the Rock-N-Roll Museum.

On Saturday, October 6th, Cal Jam will continue last year’s tradition of a 12-hour rock extravaganza where anything can happen—literally anything: last year saw the likes of Joe Perry of Aerosmith, Rick Astley, Dave Koz, Liam Gallagher and more joining the Foo Fighters on stage (yes, all during the same show). Foo Fighters will close the proceedings with one of their traditional rock marathons, bringing back what Forbes called “another great rock and roll party from the band who does them better than anyone else today.” And where last year’s inaugural festival was the beginning of the Foo Fighters’ Concrete and Gold Tour, this year’s appearance brings it full circle as the tour’s final show in the LA area.

This year Dave Grohl and crew will have set themselves up to play after literally the single hardest act to follow in the history of live music: the legendary Iggy Pop. Iggy’s Cal Jam 18 performance will be an exclusive one-off reunion with the all-star Post Pop Depression band that backed him on the handful of shows played in support of the album of the same name, featuring Queens of The Stone Age’s Joshua Homme, Dean Fertita and Troy Van Leeuwen and Arctic Monkeys’ drummer Matt Helders.

The incomparable Jack Black and Kyle Gass of Tenacious D will bring ‘The Metal’ to the masses, and alternative pop-rock icons Garbage will be bring their powerhouse live show to the stage. Also joining the bill will be some of the best that rock and roll has to offer from around the world with the likes of Greta Van Fleet, Silversun Pickups, Manchester Orchestra, Krist Novoselic’s new band Giant In The Trees, Slaves (UK), Gang of Youths, Black Mountain and more performing throughout the day. See full list below.

In addition to the full day of shred, the festival will include a number of activities open to attendees. Campers will be treated to outdoor midnight movies and access to the water park, as well as the newly christened Friday Night Comedy Tent curated by comedian Tim Hanlon (aka Dave’s cousin). Stay tuned for the full schedule to be announced!  All ticket holders will be able to enjoy the site’s free carnival rides, the Rock-N-Roll museum, pop up record shop and a hillside full of flappy guys. Because we can. For those who are looking to imbibe in tasty eats and cold drinks, Cal Jam 18 offers a wide variety of curated food trucks, traditional festival food, and all sorts of delicious cold beer.

Friday, Oct. 5th
Billy Idol, Bridget Everett, Mexrrissey + More!

Saturday, Oct. 6th
Foo Fighters, Iggy Pop with Post Pop Depression, Tenacious D, Garbage, Greta Van Fleet, Silversun Pickups, Manchester Orchestra, The Front Bottoms, Black Mountain, Deer Tick, Gang Of Youths, Slaves (UK), Giant In The Trees, Metz, Yungblud, Thunderpussy, Anna Von Hausswolff, Fea, Kingfish + More!

NEW DEEZER ORIGINAL PODCAST COLLABORATION WITH GORILLAZ

‘Things I Like’ with Russel Hobbs

Today, the world’s most personal music streaming service Deezer, is announcing the launch of its latest original content – Things I Like – a podcast collaboration with Russel Hobbs, drummer with the world’s most successful virtual band Gorillaz, with both episodes One and Two available simultaneously tonight.

In a first for Hobbs, the collaboration will see the Brooklyn native –  Gorillaz’ resident scryer and the meat behind the beat – step up to the microphone, joined by stellar list of Gorillaz friends including Jehnny Beth, De La Soul’s Pos, Peven Everett, Little Simz and Cheick Tidiane Seck, for a series of conversations from the other side.

Acknowledged by friends and colleagues as the most eloquent drummer in hip hop, the podcast will see two worlds collide, with Hobbs meeting his guests in unexpected locations, from a suburban living room in Los Angeles to the interdimensional cosmos. Things I Like offers a compelling, velvet-toned exploration of the past, the future and everything in between – music, art, life and the afterlife – while not forgetting a subject very close to the heart of this man mountain… dinner plans.

Hobbs says: “Things I Like is a chance to hear the Humanz behind the voices, the shadows behind the thoughts on the record. I wanted to connect the dots, to shine a light into those shadows, but also to have dinner with my favorite people. Coz I love eating and people… in that order.”

Recorded around the world in LA, London, Paris and Vienna, Hobbs’ adventures include:

  • Episode One: journeying back in time with De La Soul’s Posdnuos to give advice to his younger self.

  • Episode Two: planning a perfect dinner in the afterlife with Savages frontwoman Jehnny Beth.

  • Episode Three: delving into some weird and wonderful conspiracy theories with funk and soul sensation Peven Everett.

  • Episode Four: exploring the surreal vs the real with British rapper Little Simz.

  • Episode Five: recalling the birth of the Two-Tone music genre and the influence of Ska with Pauline Black.

  • Episode Six: talking with Malian musician Cheick Tidiane Seck about meeting Afrobeat pioneer Fela Kuti, while discussing the origins of the Rail Band and the power of African music.

  • Episode Seven: crossing dimensions to talk drumming with his real-world counterpart, Gabriel Wallace.

Things I Like is a collaboration between Gorillaz, Deezer Originals and award winning audio producer David Waters. Episodes One and Two are available at midnight tonight on Deezer, with the remainder released weekly. It will be available across all podcast platforms and via the Gorillaz App.

BECK

“COLORS”

DIRECTED BY EDGAR WRIGHT

AVAILABLE EXCLUSIVELY ON APPLE MUSIC

PREVIEW NOW: https://youtu.be/JQKZGziMOoI

All the Colors. See the Colors. Feel the Colors… on a kaleidoscopic audiovisual voyage with Beck as your guide. Available exclusively at apple.co/ColorsMusicVideo, “Colors” is the dazzling new video directed by Edgar Wright (Baby Driver, The Cornetto Trilogy, Scott Pilgrim vs. The World), that brings the title track of Beck’s current album to vivid multi-hued life, aided and abetted by kinetic choreography by Ryan Heffington. Beck and Wright’s collaboration on the “Colors” video has resulted in something completely alien yet strangely familiar, as if an extraterrestrial culture had accidentally intercepted a transmission of a Busby Berkeley film—and chosen to create their own sequel.

Apple Music is home to the best music video-watching experience available anywhere — all ad-free. Starting right now, fans can enjoy “Colors” and other amazing Beck music videos on Apple Music at http://applemusic.com/musicvideos.

“Colors” is both the namesake and mission statement of Beck’s 13th album (and sixth to crack the U.S. Top 10), released October 13, 2017 by Capitol Records (and streamed 212 million times since). Following up 2015 GRAMMY Album of the Year winner Morning Phase and featuring “Dreams,” “Wow,” “Dear Life” and “Up All Night” (Beck’s third Billboard Alternative #1), Colors has been hailed as “yet another milestone” (WALL STREET JOURNAL),  “a euphoric blast” (USA TODAY) and a  “classic, sneakily inventive, massively catchy” (AV CLUB) album  “that proves that Beck is still one of rock’s most intrepid inventors” (ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY).

“Colors” is directed by Edgar Wright and choreographed by Ryan Heffington. The video was produced by Bridgitte Pugh and executive produced by Nina Soriano for Anonymous Content.


PAUL McCARTNEY 2018 CATALOGUE REISSUES OUT MAY 18 VIA MPL/Capitol

NEW

Chaos And Creation In The Backyard

Wings Greatest

Thrillington

FEATURING LIMITED EDITION 180g COLOR VINYL PRESSINGS

On May 18, Paul McCartney will release four 2018 edition catalogue reissues via MPL/Capitol: NEWChaos And Creation In The BackyardWings Greatest and Thrillington. All four titles will be issued in affordable single CD digipak and 180gram black vinyl single LP formats—and will be made available for the first time in limited edition 180gram color vinyl pressings. All vinyl LPs will include a download card.

Upon its release in 2013, NEW was lauded by Rolling Stone as “energized and full of joyous rock & roll invention.” Executive produced by Giles Martin and also featuring production by Mark Ronson, Ethan Johns and Paul Epworth, NEW entered the U.S. chart at #3. The album scored positive reviews from Entertainment Weekly to Pitchfork and all points in between, while the title track, “Queenie Eye” and “Save Us” would become staples of the McCartney live show over the course of the Out There and One On One world tours. NEW’s 2018 edition will feature the first vinyl pressing of the album since its 2013 release, including a limited edition pink vinyl 180gram vinyl LP with download card and 12×12” insert.

Released in 2005, Chaos And Creation In The Backyard was instantly hailed as continuing a hot streak that included Flaming Pie, Run Devil Run and Driving Rain. Produced by Nigel Godrich (Radiohead, Beck) and featuring the singles “Fine Line” and the Grammy-winning “Jenny Wren,” Chaos And Creation… debuted at #6 on the Billboard chart. It remained on the charts for nearly half a year, while Paul mounted the massive ‘US’ Tour. In 2007, “Jenny Wren” won the Grammy for Best Male Pop Vocal Performance, while the album was nominated in three other categories including Album of the Year. The 2018 edition of Chaos And Creation… will make the album available on vinyl for the first time since its initial run and will include a limited edition gold vinyl 180gram vinyl LP with download card and 12×12” insert.

Originally released in 1978, Wings Greatest was the first ever compilation of Paul McCartney’s post-Beatles hits, featuring four classics that had previously been unavailable on any McCartney album: “Another Day,” “Junior’s Farm,” “Hi, Hi, Hi” and “Mull of Kintyre.” The penultimate Wings album release, Wings Greatest was naturally a worldwide hit, and the soundtrack to the 70s for a generation. As part of its 2018 edition reissue, Wings Greatest will be available as a limited edition blue vinyl 180gram vinyl LP with download card and 20”x30” poster.

Recorded in 1971 but not released until 1977, Thrillington remains one of the most enigmatic entries in the storied McCartney discography. Credited to the pseudonym Percy “Thrills” Thrillington, a fictitious socialite whose activities were chronicled in UK newspaper ads, Thrillington was actually a fully reimagined instrumental lounge/jazz version of Paul and Linda McCartney’s RAM. With Thrillington’s 2018 edition, Percy is given a new lease on life with this collector’s item available on vinyl for the first time since the 1977 first pressings that fetch hefty sums on the collectors’ market, plus a limited edition red/black marbled 180gram vinyl LP with download card.

Fresh off a Saturday Night Live appearance showcasing “their performatively melodramatic, driving rock… enduring power” (AV Club) and the JUNO Awards where the band won Album of the Year, performed and accepted the International Achievement Award, Arcade Fire has confirmed a new Toronto date on the Everything Now Continued tour.

The Toronto show takes place Sunday July 22nd at Budweiser Stage.

Tickets to the new show will be on sale to the public beginning Thursday, March 29th at 10am. For further information, visit EverythingNow.com and LiveNation.com.

Having closed out 2017 with an ecstatically received run through Latin America, Arcade Fire returned to the stage March 1 at Okeechobee. Following its March SNL and JUNO appearances, the band will head back to the UK and Europe for a series of standing room only dates running from April 6 at the 3Arena in Dublin through June 18 at the Stadthalle in Vienna. In addition to the recently announced July headline shows, Arcade Fire had previously confirmed festival engagements including Summerfest’s July 8 closer in Milwaukee appearance, July 14 at Sloss Music & Arts Festival in Birmingham AL, July 15 at Forecastle in Louisville KY, and August 10 at HAVEN in Copenhagen, Denmark.

GET TICKETS NOW

” A galloping assault pitched between Devo and the Buzzcocks, with theremin sounds wailing like a supercomputer meltdown in a trashy ’50s sci-fi film.”—ROLLING STONE

“Sand-kicking surf-rock…an immediate crowd-please”—STEREOGUM

Step right up and take a trip through the eerie and macabre with Queens of the Stone Age as your tour guide —in their latest video, that is. The band has unveiled the latest creation for their “mile-a-minute Cramps-style rave-up” (UPROXX) “Head Like A Haunted House,” off their Grammy-nominated seventh album Villains (Matador).

Created, directed and art direction by frequent collaborator Liam Lynch, the video is a ghastly animated carnival ride through your worst fever-induced nightmares. Accompanied by disembodied hands, UFOs, smoldering hellscapes and grooving skeletons, Joshua Homme leads the way as he and his pack of mischief-makers sail through the nighttime sky on what else but flying coffins. Step right this way, if you dare: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e9byydi6cns

The 2018 Villains Tour continues to bring the heat and lay waste to capacity crowds, with the most recent round of fervent reviews clamoring for more:

“No one quite knows how to detonate a room like QotSA…Queens fuckin’ rock.” – EUGENE WEEKLY

“Potent…cage-rattling…Queens of the Stone Age proved it’s a rock ’n’ roll band that hasn’t lost its edge.”—SEATTLE TIMES

“It was a jailbreak from restraint, composure, moderation and other Friday night fun-ruiners, feet and hips emancipated first.”—LAS VEGAS REVIEW-JOURNAL

“Full-tilt swagger…much has been said about how rock n’ roll is dead…but Queens of the Stone Age will still be out there roaming loud and free, feeling the strings beneath their fingers and the wind in their hair, the feedback in their ears and the sunset in their eyes.”—VEGAS SEVEN

“There was a celebratory sense in the air, as if the year were ending, or even a treasonous presidency. Then, sharp as a switchblade, the band drove through five high-energy numbers in unnervingly perfect synchronicity…a bittersweet adrenaline bath, a furious blur of intensity and then out…the tightest gang in rock.”—ANTIQUIET

After a triumphant South American jaunt with brothers in arms Foo Fighters, Queens of the Stone Age will make their return to the US later this month with stops including Austin (Austin360 Amphitheater) and Irving (The Pavillion at the Irving Music Factory) as well as Miami’s Bayfront Park Amphitheater, but not before kicking it all off with two sold out nights at San Diego’s Observatory North Park. Tickets are flying like bats out of hell, grab them now while you still can: http://www.qotsa.com

In addition to the slew of upcoming North American and European dates, Queens of the Stone Age will be headlining this summer at London’s Finsbury Park on June 30th—and they’re bringing friends. The band has curated a special lineup with guests including Iggy Pop, Run The Jewels, The Hives, Brody Dalle, and more.

LAZARUS

THE MOTION PICTURE/LIVE SOUNDTRACK EXPERIENCE

FEATURING EXCLUSIVE PERFORMANCE BY THE ORIGINAL BAND FROM THE
OFF-BROADWAY SHOW BY DAVID BOWIE & ENDA WALSH

ONE NIGHT ONLY MAY 2 AT THE KINGS THEATRE IN BROOKLYN

Tickets On Sale Tuesday, March 20 at https://www1.ticketmaster.com/lazarus-brooklyn-new-york-05-02-2018/event/3000546AACA11ED9?artistid=1522046&majorcatid=10001&minorcatid=60

Lazarus, the stage musical written by David Bowie and Enda Walsh, will be given a new life in a new light on May 2 at 8pm at the Kings Theatre in Brooklyn.

For the first time and for one night only, the theatrical premiere of a film of Lazarus’s London production will be soundtracked in the flesh by the actual band who brought the show to life in New York. Not only will fans who were unable to score tickets to Lazarus’s sold out New York run finally be able to see the show on the silver screen—they will have the unique and unprecedented experience of seeing the film with the music played in its entirety by the seven-piece band that backed Michael C. Hall and the Lazarus cast beginning with the show’s December 7, 2015 opening in New York City.

Lazarus features of nearly 20 songs spanning the Bowie catalogue personally rearranged by David Bowie and Henry Hey, from singles (“Heroes,” “Changes,” “Life On Mars?”) to deep cuts (“Always Crashing in the Same Car,” “It’s No Game (Part 1),” “Dirty Boys”) to the four songs written specifically for the show (“Lazarus,” “No Plan,” “Killing a Little Time,” “When I Met You”).  The Lazarus film/live soundtrack experience will mark the first time that these musicians have played these songs live since the January 20, 2016 finale of the show’s New York run.

The original Lazarus band is comprised of musical director/arranger/keyboardist (and producer of the Lazarus Cast Album) Henry Hey, keyboardist/guitarist JJ Appleton, drummer Brian Delaney, saxophonist Lucas Dodd, bassist Fima Ephron, trombonist Karl Lyden and guitarist Chris McQueen. Together, they will provide live accompaniment to on screen performances by Lazarus London cast members including Michael C. Hall as Thomas Jerome Newton, Amy Lennox as Elly, Sophia Anne Caruso as Girl, Michael Esper as Valentine, Jamie Muscato as Ben, and more.

Written by Bowie and Enda Walsh, Lazarus was inspired by Walter Tevis’s novel The Man Who Fell to Earth, and starred Michael C. Hall as Thomas Jerome Newton, the character Bowie portrayed in the 1976 film adaptation of that book. Directed by Ivo Van Hove and produced by Robert Fox, Lazarus opened December 7, 2015 at the New York Theatre Workshop to great critical acclaim. The New York Times raved “Ice-cold bolts of ecstasy shoot like novas through the glamorous muddle and murk of Lazarus, the great-sounding, great-looking and mind-numbing new musical built around songs by David Bowie,” while Rolling Stone hailed it as a “Surrealistic Tour de Force… milk-swimming, lingerie-sniffing, gin-chugging theater at its finest.” Tickets to the entire New York run of Lazarus sold out within hours of going on sale. The sold out London production of Lazarus, which was filmed for the May 2 event, had an exclusive limited run at the specially built Kings Cross Theatre from November 8, 2016 to January 22, 2017.

Lazarus The Motion Picture/Live Soundtrack Experience is presented by Live Nation in association with RZO Productions, Inc., under license from David Bowie Archive. All net proceeds from this show will be donated to Public Programs at the Brooklyn Museum including monthly, talks, performances, and screenings.
