AMERICAN DREAM OUT SEPTEMBER 1 ON COLUMBIA RECORDS/DFA

LCD Soundsystem has released a third track from its eagerly anticipated fourth album AMERICAN DREAM: Having premiered today via Apple Music as Zane Lowe’s World Record on Beats 1, “tonite” has been a staple of the LCD live set since its debut performance in April—which moved STEREOGUM to laud it as “an instant classic LCD song. A hardened disco synth line and unrelenting beat push the whole thing forward, making it one of those LCD semi-epics.”

“tonite” will be included with pre-orders placed at http://smarturl.it/americandream along with “call the police” and “american dream,” which were released May 5.

“tonite” has also become the first proper video from American Dream. Directed by Joel Kefali and shot in Melbourne, Australia, the clip can be viewed at  http://smarturl.it/tonitevideo.

AMERICAN DREAM will be released September 1 digitally and on vinyl and CD via Columbia Records/DFA, with a special cassette edition available exclusively through DFA. The album will consist of the following songs:oh baby

QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE: “THE WAY YOU USED TO DO” VIDEO OUT NOW

QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE

“THE WAY YOU USED TO DO” VIDEO

ALL HELLZAPOPPIN’ BREAKS LOOSE IN SATANIC DANCE PRODUCTION

WRITTEN BY JOSHUA HOMME & DIRECTED BY JONAS AKERLUND

PREVIEW NOW: http://mat-r.co/QOTSA_Preview

FULL VIDEO AVAILABLE EXCLUSIVELY AT http://mat-r.co/QOTSA_Video

“Dancing and headbanging are truly individualistic expressions of losing oneself fully in appreciation of music—who better to combine these things into a singular vision than someone who’s directed Madonna and Lady Gaga videos–and also happens to have been a member of Bathory?”—Joshua Homme

“The Way You Used To Do,” the recently released first single from Queens Of The Stone Age’s ominously approaching seventh album Villains, has been realized as a fever dream Satanic dance ritual extravaganza—featuring QOTSA founder and frontman Joshua Homme lighter on his feet and darker in his soul than ever before.

Conceived by Joshua Homme, directed by Jonas Akerlund and produced by Serial Pictures, “The Way You Used To Do,” somehow fit its multiple sets, wardrobe changes and intricate dance routines into one day of shooting August 8th in Los Angeles. Considering potential reactions to the sinister shuffle of “The Way We Used To Do” being translated into a panoramic soul-selling dance trip, Homme says “It’s our way of paying tribute to Cab Calloway and the film Hellzapoppin’. I fully realize that may be a little more than some are open to, and that’s perfectly fine with me. There’s the door. If some of the more close-minded are gently pruned, that just leaves more room on the dance floor for the open-minded ones to get loose. That’s been the spirit of Queens Of The Stone Age and the space we’ve worked to create from day one.”

With recently released second track “The Evil Has Landed” hailed by Rolling Stone as “a sprawling and diabolical new rocker” featuring “Homme singing in a falsetto that sounds both sweet and sinister,” Villains was co-produced by Mark Ronson and will be released August 25th on Matador Records. The album is available now for pre-order at http://smarturl.it/Villains.

The colossal Villains tour begins September 6th with a sold out show in Port Chester NY and will see the Queens playing directly before Foo Fighters and alongside Cage The Elephant, The Kills, Liam Gallagher, Japandroids and more at the massive Cal Jam 17 October 7th at Glen Helen Regional Park in San Bernadino, CA. Tickets for the headline dates—which feature support from Royal Blood–are available at http://smarturl.it/QOTSALive.

Queens Of The Stone Age is Joshua Homme, Troy Van Leeuwen, Dean Fertita, Michael Shuman and Jon Theodore.

AT THE DRIVE IN: NEW VIDEO FOR “CALL BROKEN ARROW” NOW LIVE

AT THE DRIVE IN

NEW VIDEO FOR “CALL BROKEN ARROW” NOW LIVE https://youtu.be/ljt4MFfgB7c

in • ter a • li • a OUT NOW ON RISE RECORDS

“Both math-y and explosive, a stadium-size version of a great band’s former glory.”—ROLLING STONE

“Like two jets racing toward at each other full speed, narrowly missing each other at the last minute… ferocious, fast, loud and still fairly precise.”—NPR

“[A] very, very loud triumph”—THE RINGER

“Pure firepower”—ALTERNATIVE PRESS

Continuing to build on the feverish momentum of their new album in • ter a • li • a, released May 5, 2017 on Rise Records, At The Drive In has proudly unveiled the new video for “Call Broken Arrow.”

Directed by Rob Shaw, “Call Broken Arrow” acts as the prequel to the video for “Hostage Stamps,” as it unfolds a story of previously seen prisoner and faceless captors—with an eerie appearance by mechanized spiders. Using the same intricate mix of digital and stop-motion animation, the video for “Call Broken Arrow” gives viewers a closer look behind the man’s reason for imprisonment, as Rob Shaw explains:

“In ‘Hostage Stamps,’ we have a prisoner being tortured and monitored by some sort of authoritarian organization. The guys wanted to show why he was imprisoned, as well as cast doubt over his innocence. It’s funny how in stories, especially film stories, you tend to sympathize with whoever you spend time with. When you watch someone being mistreated, the assumption is that person is the victim. ‘Call Broken Arrow’ is in part about illustrating the prisoner’s culpability, but even that is in doubt as we see the Watcher character who follows him around slipping something in his drink at the end.”

The striking animation featured in “Call Broken Arrow” utilized what Shaw describes as an “old film technique approach”—the team used rotating buildings, sliding clouds and in-camera practical effects to create an immersive world for the viewer. Experience it for yourself now: https://youtu.be/ljt4MFfgB7c

“As badass as ever…our first taste of Villains sounds like what the bluesman Slim Harpo might have put out if he’d grown up in the age of energy drinks, MTV, and Adderall — and in Palm Springs.”—VULTURE

Skinbeck, a longtime acquaintance of Niccals, has a long and illustrious career in producing TV ads for a local double glazing company based in Stoke on Trent and Murdoc thought he’d be rather good at making pop videos.

Notes to Editors:

Peven Everett is a rare artist of many talents whose work alternately covers the territories of house, R&B, jazz and hip-hop. Everett, who was born in Harvey, IL, received a scholarship to Berklee College of Music at the age of 17, before leaving to perform live at Carnegie Hall with the likes of Betty Carter, Branford Marsalis, and Winton Marsalis. Since then, the multi-instrumentalist has played trumpet on a handful of jazz recordings (including Curtis Lundy’s Against All Odds) and has become a prominent figure in Chicago’s house, soul and R&B communities. He has released seven solo albums to date.

Gorillaz is singer 2D, bassist Murdoc Niccals, guitarist Noodle and drummer Russel Hobbs. Created by Damon Albarn and Jamie Hewlett, their acclaimed eponymous debut album was released in 2001. The BRIT and Grammy Award winning band’s subsequent albums are Demon Days (2005), Plastic Beach (2010) and The Fall (2011). A truly global phenomenon, Gorillaz have topped charts around the world and toured the globe from San Diego to Syria,  picking up hundreds of millions of streams and record sales along the way. Gorillaz have achieved success in entirely ground-breaking ways, winning numerous awards including the coveted Jim Henson Creativity Honor and are recognised by The Guinness Book Of World Records as the planet’s Most Successful Virtual Act. New album Humanz was released to widespread critical acclaim last month, reaching #1 and #2 in the U.S. and U.K. album charts respectively, and topping the iTunes chart in 60 plus countries around the world.

Humanz

The 14-track album Humanz is available on standard CD, vinyl and as a digital download, as well as a 19-track 2-CD Deluxe. A limited edition Super Deluxe Vinyl Box Set featuring new and previously unreleased ‘b-sides’ / alternate versions of album tracks, is available to pre-order via gorillaz.com/storenow. Produced by Gorillaz, The Twilite Tone of D /\ P and Remi Kabaka and recorded in London, Paris, New York, Chicago and Jamaica, Humanz comes seven years on from the release of albums The Fall and Plastic Beach. Murdoc Niccals (bass), Noodle (guitar), Russel Hobbs (drums) and 2D (vocals) are – as always – joined by a stellar line up of featured artists which includes Jehnny Beth (Savages), Danny BrownBenjamin ClementineDe La SoulD.R.A.M., Peven EverettAnthony HamiltonGrace JonesZebra KatzKelelaMavis StaplesVince StaplesPopcaanPusha TJamie Principleand Kali Uchis among others.

Pre-orders will include “call the police” and “american dream,” which were released as a single May 5 that moved Pitchfork to rave the songs “couldn’t sound timelier” and that “Murphy and company have never sounded so invigorated,” while The New York Times hailed “call the police” as “a quietly ambitious protest song… except that instead of searing, it motors,” and Noisey embraced “american dream” like “a warm blanket.”  Both A-sides received their TV debut the following day with LCD Soundsystem’s May 6 SaturdayNight Live appearance.

AMERICAN DREAM will be released September 1 digitally and on vinyl and CD via Columbia Records/DFA, with a special cassette edition available exclusively through DFA. The album will consist of the following songs:

oh baby
other voices
i used to
change yr mind
how do you sleep?
tonite
call the police
american dream
emotional haircut
black screen

LCD Soundsystem’s extensive world tour continues with an August 26 appearance at the Hellow Festival in 17 Monterrey, Mexico, followed by a UK/Europe run beginning September 8 in Copenhagen. The North American leg will kick off October 17 at The Anthem in Washington DC.

#InfiniteInfiniteContent #DressCodeGate CONTESTS LIVE NOW

Arcade Fire, whose fifth album Everything Now will be released this Friday, July 28, are currently running two Twitter contests for fans.

The first, called Infinite Infinite Content, challenges fans to create their own version of the song “Infinite Content” using only musical scores and MIDI files that the band has provided. That competition ends at 11:59 eastern time on July 27.

The second, inspired by the negative reaction to a fictional dress code that the band never insisted on for tomorrow’s intimate show in Brooklyn, is called #Dresscodegate. The band is asking fans to tweet a photo of themselves in their least hip, least trendy outfit; winners will have access to special VIP areas at the show, and they’ll be gifted a bunch of Everything Now swag.
