GHOST
13 COMMANDMENTS

Ghost cap off yet another triumphant year. One bookended by two GRAMMY nominations: one for the international #1 album IMPERA and one for “Phantom of The Opera” from the PHANTOMIME covers EP; a 5 month, 4 continent world tour including 2 sold out nights at L.A.’s Kia Forum; 2 major collaborations: “Spillways” featuring Def Leppard’s Joe Elliott, and “Stay (featuring Patrick Wilson)” as heard over the end credits of Insidious: The Red Door. In commemoration of an unprecedented last 12 months, Ghost now share a divine compilation of some of their most sinful psalms spanning the band’s many eras. A treasure trove for the most fervent devotees and new initiates alike, Ghost’s 13 Commandments compilation chronicles the band’s metamorphosis from Scandinavian curiosity to world-straddling creative colossus — all that and fans are rewarded with the wider release of Ghost’s cult tune “Zenith.”

“Few musicians have released two culture-shifting records in the span of a single year, and even less have done it with two different musical outfits… the Death Cab/Postal Service tour is peak millennial nostalgia, in the best way.”

Today, indie rock titans The Postal Service and Death Cab for Cutie have unveiled additional North American dates for their landmark 20th anniversary co-headline ‘Give Up Transatlanticism’ tour, set for April-May 2024 – watch the official tour trailer (directed by frequent visual collaborator Juliet Bryant) here.

The extension comes in response to massive demand from fans, following the joint tour’s critically acclaimed and wildly-successful 2023 dates. That run was entirely sold-out and included back-to-back shows at NYC’s Madison Square Garden, three nights at LA’s Hollywood Bowl, and marquee dates in many other major cities – bringing 250k+ fans together at iconic arenas and amphitheaters across the US.

This extraordinary live run celebrates the 20th anniversaries of each band’s seminal 2003 album, The Postal Service’s RIAA Platinum-certified Give Up and Death Cab for Cutie’s RIAA Platinum-certified breakthrough fourth studio LP Transatlanticism – two classics released within a mere eight months of one another, and created with a total recording budget of just $20k.

Benjamin Gibbard, co-founder of both bands, will continue to pull double duty on the 2024 dates, performing Give Up and Transatlanticism in full alongside his respective bandmates. “Few musicians have released two culture-shifting records in the span of a single year,” Pitchfork proclaimed within their glowing review of this fall’s first MSG show, “and even less have done it with two different musical outfits.”

Kicking off in Atlanta on April 23, the spring 2024 run will include stops in Nashville, Toronto, Vancouver, Milwaukee, and more, before culminating in Portland, OR on May 15. Indie rock quartet Slow Pulp is set to support each night of the tour.

Presales will begin next Wednesday, December 6 at 10am local time, starting with the Artist Presale. All tickets will be available at the general on-sale starting next Friday, December 8 at 10am local time. Sign up for early access to tickets at giveuptransatlanticismtour.com.

Both bands are also thrilled to announce they’ll be bringing the tour to London next year. UK fans can stay up-to-date and sign up for notifications about this highly-anticipated show here.

“I know for a fact I will never have a year again like 2003. The Postal Service record came out, Transatlanticism came out. These two records will be on my tombstone, and I’m totally fine with that. I’ve never had a more creatively inspired year.” – Benjamin Gibbard

The groundbreaking ‘Give Up Transatlanticism’ tour has been hailed as a “once-in-a-lifetime show” (Nylon), “dream double bill” (Variety), “must-see” (Consequence), and “one of the best shows of the year” (Alternative Press). Before the 2023 dates began, the historic outing was named one of GQ’s “12 Pop Culture Releases We’re Most Looking Forward to in 2023.”The Postal Service is comprised of Gibbard, Jimmy Tamborello, and Jenny Lewis; Death Cab for Cutie is comprised of Gibbard, Nick Harmer, Dave Depper, Zac Rae, and Jason McGerr.

Formed in Bellingham, WA in 1997, Death Cab for Cutie immediately entered the ranks of the era’s most definitive bands, thanks in large part to the remarkable power of co-founder, vocalist, guitarist, and lead songwriter Ben Gibbard’s complex, often bittersweet songcraft. The band made their worldwide popular breakthrough with 2003’s RIAA Platinum-certified Transatlanticism, later named by NPR as one of “The Decade’s 50 Most Important Recordings.” Fueled by critical acclaim, an array of high profile soundtrack placements, and such hit singles as “The Sound of Settling” and “Title and Registration,” the album debuted among the upper half of the Billboard 200 – Death Cab for Cutie’s first ever entry on the overall chart. A 10th anniversary edition of Transatlanticism containing previously unheard demos and outtakes arrived in 2013, prompting NPR to write, “For all its ubiquity and imitators, Transatlanticism holds up as an exquisitely produced, largely flawless record in which every song is bound to serve as someone’s favorite.”

2003 also saw Gibbard and Los Angeles, CA-based multi-instrumentalist Jimmy Tamborello (Dntel, Figurine) unite as The Postal Service, a long distance collaboration named for their working method of exchanging tracks via the US Mail. The duo – joined by a number of friends including singer-songwriter Jenny Lewis – proved a phenomenon with the February 2003 release of their one and only studio LP, Give Up, earning worldwide applause and eventual RIAA Platinum certification thanks to infectious electro-pop smashes like “The District Sleeps Alone Tonight” (a top 3 sensation on Billboard’s “Hot Dance Singles” chart), “We Will Become Silhouettes (which reached the top 3 on the Canadian Singles Chart), and of course, the magical RIAA Gold-certified “Such Great Heights.” The album’s stature continued to grow in the years following its original release, ultimately spending 19 non-consecutive weeks at #1 on Billboard’s “Top Electronic Albums” chart. In 2013, The Postal Service reunited to mark the 10th anniversary of Give Up with their biggest headline tour ever, along with top-billed performances at such international festivals as Coachella, Primavera Sound, Lollapalooza, and Sasquatch. In addition, a commemorative 10th anniversary edition of Give Up saw the singular collection expanded with 15 bonus tracks, including two brand new songs, “A Tattered Line of String” and “Turn Around.”

ALKALINE TRIO
“BAD TIME”
SECOND ADVANCE TRACK AND VIDEO FROM FORTHCOMING 10th ALBUM
BLOOD, HAIR, AND EYEBALLS OUT JANUARY 26, 2024 ON RISE RECORDS

Alkaline Trio serves up another helping of Blood, Hair, and Eyeballs in the form of “Bad Time,” the darkly melodic second track to be released in advance of its 10th album, due out January 26, 2024 on Rise Records.

“Bad Time” follows last month’s unveiling of the album’s frenetic title track — hailed by Consequence for its “fresh approach” and by Brooklyn Vegan as “classic Alkaline Trio… their grim yet catchy punk sounds as unmistakable as ever” — with a more subdued yet no less intense vibe. This makes perfect sense, as the lyrics find Trio guitarist/vocalist Matt Skiba finding the eyes of multiple storms in the form of the same friend’s voice:

“‘Bad Time’ was initially inspired by a friend and crush who happened to call me while I was on tour in El Paso TX as an active shooter situation was happening just across from where we were staying. We could hear gunshots and sirens as the situation escalated. My friend asked if it was a bad time to talk, and I said no — I really wanted to speak with her. It was actually a terrible and terrifying time, but it was never a bad time to hear her voice. The second verse goes back to a time in Chicago when my roommate Bobby and I were almost killed in the crossfire of a drive-by shooting — high as kites on mushrooms. We lived in a neighborhood run by Latin Kings at the time of the shooting, so I reference those facts as well as how nice it would have been to hear from the same girl back then.”

The “Bad Time” video sees Alkaline Trio reunited with director Ravi Dahr, who previously turned the song “Blood, Hair, and Eyeballs” into an apocalyptic skate-zombie (empty) pool party. “Working again with Ravi and his beautiful team has been a lot of work but even more fun,” says Skiba. “We spent the short time we had to put this together brainstorming and sending each other links and photos and film references. It’s not every day I meet someone that loves Dario Argento or Stanley Kubrick or Kenneth Anger and so on as much as I do. Ravi did all the actual, real work on this thing, but I love being involved and hope that I helped to paint this beautiful picture.” 

Recorded with GRAMMY-winning producer Cameron Webb at Studio 606 in Northridge CA, Blood, Hair, and Eyeballs finds Alkaline Trio stripping its sound down to the skin and bones of its unmistakable sonic spirit, while taking that dark essence to parts previously unknown. In addition to being a darkly shining exemplar of the Trio’s signature blend of wry lyrical wit and bittersweet melodic sensibility, Blood, Hair, and Eyeballs arrives in a confluence of endings and beginnings—it’s both the first album to be released via the band’s new label home, Rise Records, and the last to feature longtime member Derek Grant, drummer on every Alkaline Trio record since 2003’s classic Good Mourning.

See below for Blood, Hair, and Eyeballs’ tracklist, as well as a full list of upcoming live dates (with support from Drug Church), on which Skiba and bassist/vocalist Dan Andriano will be joined by veteran drummer Atom Willard (Against Me!, Rocket from the Crypt).

FOO FIGHTERS & H.E.R.

“THE GLASS” DOUBLE A-SIDE SINGLE
Available Digitally November 17 
Pre-Order Vinyl Single Here

“I had a vision of you
And just like that
I was left to live without it…”

They played the song together on Saturday Night Live last month, and now they’re each releasing their own versions: Today Foo Fighters proudly announce the Friday, November 17 digital release of a double A-side single featuring a reinterpretation of “The Glass” by H.E.R. alongside the original version from the band’s universally acclaimed But Here We Are.

H.E.R.’s newly recorded solo version of “The Glass” is nothing short of a revelation—a stunning and singular vocal/guitar performance that wrings new sonic and emotional dimensions from the original.

Foo Fighters’ “The Glass” is taken from their 11th album, But Here We Are—released June 2 via Roswell Records/RCA Records and recently nominated for three GRAMMY Awards (Best Rock Album, Best Rock Song and Best Rock Performance). Like BHWA staples “Rescued,” “Under You” and “The Teacher,” “The Glass” has quickly become a new highlight of the Foo Fighters’ live juggernaut — which  shows no signs of slowing, with a November 18 Austin City Limits TV appearance and a sold out Australia/New Zealand stadium tour on the immediate horizon, as well as stadium dates and festival headlines across the US, UK and Europe going well into 2024.

Pre-save Foo Fighters & H.E.R.: “The Glass” here — available to stream and download this Friday, November 17 — or pre-order the limited edition 7-inch vinyl single out December 29 at your favorite independent record store and here.


Chrysler Museum of Art Announces 

Paul McCartney Photographs 1963–64: Eyes of the Storm  

FIRST time 250 images from personal archive on exhibition in the U.S.

Paul McCartney (English, b. 1942) Paul McCartney, self-portrait, London 1963-64 Photograph 1963-64 Paul McCartney

The Chrysler Museum of Art announces the Dec. 5, 2023, opening of the major exhibition Paul McCartney Photographs 1963–64: Eyes of the Storm, comprised of 250 of his curated images. This exhibition runs through April 7, 2024, at the Museum, One Memorial Place, Norfolk with Dec. 5 and 6 being member-only days. 

This intimate and very personal exhibition drawn from McCartney’s private archives shares photographs from December 1963 through February 1964, as the momentum of Beatlemania began. McCartney used his Pentax camera and captured the Fab Four— himself, John Lennon, George Harrison and Ringo Starr–as they rocketed from being the most idolized band in the United Kingdom to the most popular musicians in the world. 

The Museum has been fortunate to have McCartney’s photographic curator and archivist, Sarah Brown, to collaborate onsite with Chrysler Museum Senior Curator Lloyd DeWitt as they complete the installation of this once-in-a -museum’s-lifetime exhibit. McCartney, Brown and the National Portrait Gallery’s Rosie Broadley carefully selected the images for Paul McCartney Photographs 1963-64: Eyes of the Storm for its debut earlier in 2023 at the National Portrait Gallery in London and now at The Chrysler Museum of Art. Brown will be onsite to meet with media, answer questions and lead tours through the exhibition before it opens to the public.

Visitors to this distinctive exhibition will encounter an immersive experience from the Eyes of the Storm with 250 photographs and video footage. Included ​are photographs McCartney captured of him and his bandmates at Liverpool and London gigs to The Beatles‘ perspective as they experienced in real time “The Ed Sullivan Show” in New York, a historic appearance that drew a record 73 million viewers. 

“Every picture brings back memories. I can try and place where we were and what we were doing to either side of the frame. Pictures of us with the photographers bring back memories of being in New York for the first time and being taken down to Central Park, the New York hard-bitten cameramen shouting out, ‘Hey Beatle, hey Beatle.’ We’d look at them and they’d take the picture. ‘One more for the West Coast.’ I remember all those stories,” said McCartney when interviewed by Christie’s last September. 

ABOUT THE CHRYSLER MUSEUM OF ART

The Museum has growing collections in many areas and mounts an ambitious schedule of visiting exhibitions and educational programs each season. The Chrysler Museum has also been recognized nationally for its unique commitment to inclusion with its innovative gallery host program.

The Perry Glass Studio is a state-of-the-art facility on the Museum’s campus. The studio offers programming for aspiring and master artists alike in a variety of processes, including glassblowing, fusing, flameworking, coldworking and neon.

Paul McCartney Photographs 1963–1964: Eyes of the Storm is curated by Paul McCartney with Sarah Brown on behalf of MPL Communications Limited and Rosie Broadley for the National Portrait Gallery, London, and presented by the Chrysler Museum of Art.

Named one of Variety’s Best Music Books of 2021
Included in Audible’s Best of The Year list
A Business Insider Best Memoirs of 2021
One of NME’s Best Music Books of 2021

From the beloved Foo Fighters front man and drummer of Nirvana, a collection of  stories that have engaged, entertained, and astonished almost 2 million readers  worldwide—featuring exclusive new content for the paperback…because there’s  always more to the story

Dey Street Books is thrilled to publish the new trade paperback edition of THE STORYTELLER by Grammy winning musician, Emmy-winning director, and bestselling author Dave Grohl.  

Dave Grohl’s THE STORYTELLER created a sensation when it was published and has gone on to sell over 2  million copies around the world. Readers praised the book for Dave’s heartfelt, authentic voice, his love of  family and music, and the zest for life that pours from every page. 

Now, in this deluxe paperback edition further showcases Dave’s love of writing, but also his appreciation for  his fans, offering a wide variety of extra content, including: 

• The story of when Dave first met Paul McCartney, previously an audiobook exclusive • An essay on how Dave approaches creativity (here’s a hint: you don’t have to think outside of the  box when you can just ignore the box altogether) 
• A series of prompts to inspire readers to jump into their own creative pursuits • Dave’s playlists for early morning pancake making, manning the grill, and getting behind the wheel  and blasting the tunes 
• An in-depth examination of the creation of four Foo Fighters favorites, including the inspiration  behind the lyrics and how Dave and these songs have grown together

THE STORYTELLER redefined the parameters of the music memoir. With this paperback, the legacy continues. 

ABOUT THE AUTHOR: 

19-time GRAMMY-winning musician, 2-time Emmy-winning director, bestselling author and 2-time Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee Dave Grohl has been one of  the most beloved and respected figures on the international music scene since his  recorded debut with Nirvana on 1991’s generation-defining Nevermind. Grohl took  center stage with Foo Fighters’ 1995 self-titled debut, the first album in a massive catalogue that includes The Colour & The Shape (1997), There Is Nothing Left To Lose (1999), One By One (2002), In Your Honor (2005), Echoes, Silence, Patience & Grace (2007), Wasting Light (2011), Sonic Highways (2014), Concrete and Gold (2017), Medicine at Midnight (2021) and, most recently, the band’s universally acclaimed 11th album, But Here We Are (2023). 

Foo Fighters celebrated their 26th anniversary with their 2021 induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame —marking the second time Grohl received the honor, having previously been inducted as a member of Nirvana in 2014. 

Grohl has a well-earned reputation as a prolific collaborator: His various endeavors have included “Cut Me Some Slack,” written and recorded with Paul McCartney and Grohl’s Nirvana bandmates Krist Novoselic and Pat Smear; Them Crooked Vultures, formed with Led Zeppelin’s John Paul Jones and Queens of the Stone  Age’s Joshua Homme, playing live and in-studio with late legends David Bowie and Lemmy Kilmister of  Motorhead, as well as working with Mick Jagger, Neil Young, Elton John, Nine Inch Nails, Brian May and  Roger Taylor of Queen, to name but a few… 

In 2013, Grohl made his debut as a feature director/producer with the acclaimed documentary Sound City—the story of the Van Nuys CA studio where Nirvana recorded Nevermind in 1991, which would sell more than 30 million copies and transform the modern musical landscape. Premiering to unanimous raves at Sundance and achieving a 100% Rotten Tomatoes rating, Sound City focused both on the history of the legendary studio and on the ongoing fight to preserve the human element of music. Hailed by The New York Times as “candy to several generations’ worth of rock fans” and NPR as “a celebration of just how unbelievably awesome it is to make rock music for a living,” Sound City has since been certified as a Gold Longform Video by the RIAA, while the Sound City—Real To Reel companion album took the 2013 GRAMMYs for Best Compilation Soundtrack for Visual Media and Best Rock Song (“Cut Me Some Slack”).  

Grohl’s subsequent directorial efforts have included the eight-part HBO docuseries Foo Fighters: Sonic Highways, which premiered in October 2014 and went on to win two of the four Emmys for which it was nominated (outstanding sound mixing for nonfiction programming and outstanding sound editing for nonfiction programming). Described by Grohl as a love letter to the history of American music, Sonic Highways was comprised of eight one-hour episodes, each chronicling the creation of one song on Foo Fighters’ Sonic Highways album, each written and recorded in a different American musical landmark –  Austin, Chicago, Los Angeles, Nashville, New Orleans, New York, Seattle, and Washington, D.C. In April  2021, What Drives Us—Grohl’s feature-length documentary tribute to “every musician that has ever jumped in an old van with their friends and left it all behind for the simple reward of playing music”  premiered via The Coda Collection to unanimously positive reviews. Comprised of firsthand accounts from Grohl, his Foo Fighters bandmates and a diverse cast of van tour veterans ranging from up and comers RadKey and Starcrawler to Ringo Starr and St. Vincent to members of U2, Metallica, Black Flag, Guns N’ Roses, AC/DC and many more, What Drives Us is a unique and poignant exploration of a common  bond: the unstoppable drive of young musicians to share their music with the world.  

October 5, 2021 marked Dave Grohl’s debut as an author with THE STORYTELLER: Tales of Life and Music, published by Dey Street Books, an imprint of the William Morrow Group at HarperCollins. Shooting to #1 on  The New York Times Bestseller List — on the Nonfiction Print as well as Combined print and ebook lists —  as well as topping the bestselling book charts in Canada, Ireland and Great Britain, THE STORYTELLER quickly added International Bestselling Author to Grohl’s ever-growing list of accomplishments and  accolades. Driven by rave reviews and sold out performances of an intimate, three-hour one-man  show, and Best of 2021 nods from the likes of Audible, Business Insider, NME and Variety, THE  STORYTELLER has captivated individual readers and live audiences alike.  
 

PRAISE FOR THE STORYTELLER: 

“Candid, humble and full of stories about big-time stars…music lovers will want to put this one in heavy  rotation.” — CNN 

“The message that burns through The Storyteller is to those who watch him onstage now: Deep down, I’m  just like you. I’ve worked hard to get where I am, but I obsessed over the same music you do. I’m a fan.” — Billboard 

“Grohl, of Nirvana and Foo Fighters fame, demonstrates the good-naturedness he’s known for in this  heartfelt standout that explores everything from the loss of Kurt Cobain to the road to fatherhood.” — Audible (Best of the Year list) 

“Both a timestamp of the past and a living example of what can be accomplished through creation. Lovers  of chronicled melodic adventures and those seeking artistic inspiration will want to check it out.” — Parade

“… the world benefits just as much from hearing his inspiring stories told as only one of rock’s great  stadium rockers turned storyteller can tell them.” — Forbes 

“He may be a slight musical genius, but Grohl’s journey from modest, punk-obsessed troublemaker, to  drumming in the most popular band of the decade, to launching an enduring solo career that puts his rock  and roll ethos at its center, is a truly inspiring tale.” — Consequence of Sound 

“The title The Storyteller fits perfectly. The book is filled with plainspoken, conversational prose that ably  pulls readers into each tale, no matter how linear or digressive. The pages fly by, the memoir having the  feel of a series of chats over drinks with a friend who just happens to have worked with nearly every  notable mainstream and indie-rock musician of the last few decades.” — Pittsburgh Post-Gazette 

“Grohl candidly shares his reverence for the enduring power of music. . . Reflecting on his fame, Grohl  writes, ‘ have never taken a single moment of it for granted.’ Paired with his sparkling wit, this humility is  what makes Grohl’s soulful story a cut above typical rock memoirs. There isn’t a dull moment here.” — Publishers Weekly (starred review) 

“Grohl bares his soul and shares his passion in this must-read memoir, which will resonate with music  lovers and his fans.” — Library Journal (starred review) 

“Kinetic… Grohl writes with equal fervor about his path from ‘that guy from Nirvana’ to the leader of the  uberfamous Foo Fighters and his parenting experiences. An exciting read for fans and a remarkable  perspective on the last 30 years of rock music.” — Booklist

DEPECHE MODE
“MY FAVOURITE STRANGER” REMIXES OUT NOW
MEMENTO MORI VINYL WHITE LABEL REMIX SERIES DEBUTS NOVEMBER 10
PRE-ORDERS LIVE NOW

Depeche Mode unveils new dimensions of “My Favourite Stranger” with today’s digital release of five new remixes of the track hailed by Allmusic for its “pulsing menace” that “builds to discomfiting yet alluring levels of anxiety.” The latest series of reimaginations of a song from the universally acclaimed Memento Mori (Columbia Records), the newly released “My Favourite Stranger” remixes are by Boris Brejcha, Ela Minus, Long Island Sound, Sunken Cages and Al Wootton.

Meanwhile in the physical world, Depeche Mode announces the launch of the Memento Mori White Label Remix Series, a monthly drop of 12” vinyl singles building on the previously digital-only remixes of Memento Mori’s singles. The series will debut with the November 10 release of  “Ghosts Again,”  the first of these limited edition, individually numbered pieces. Pre-orders are now open for the Memento Mori White Label Remix Series, which will be available exclusively at https://lnk.to/depechemodestore/ in the U.S., and at select physical retailers in Europe.

On the live front, the third leg of Depeche Mode’s Memento Mori World Tour continues to play to capacity crowds and ecstatic reviews. The band returns to New York tomorrow for an October 21 date at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center, to be followed a week later by the tour’s second stop at Madison Square Garden on October 28. With recent performances described by NOLA.com as “the best of Depeche Mode from back then, delivered with all the power and passion of Depeche Mode now” and by the Houston Chronicle as “a sharing of spirits and energies, with each other and the crowd that so clearly still adores them,” the tour’s second North American run will continue in arenas across the continent before wrapping with a mid-December four-night stand in Los Angeles. The band will then return to Europe at the start of 2024 for an additional round of European dates following last summer’s sold-out stadium tour. See below for a full list of dates.

Having sold more than 100 million records and played to more than 35 million fans worldwide, Depeche Mode remains an ever-evolving and singularly influential musical force. Depeche Mode released its acclaimed 15th studio album, Memento Mori, on March 24, 2023 alongside the launch of the Memento Mori World Tour, which has since played to well over two million fans and has been extended into 2024 due to overwhelming demand. An indelible inspiration to fans, critics and artists alike, Depeche Mode continues to forge ahead, with the Memento Mori album and tour representing the newest chapter of a peerless and ongoing legacy.

ALKALINE TRIO

NEW ALBUM OUT JANUARY 26, 2024 ON RISE RECORDS

Album Available for Pre-Order at alkalinetrio.com and alkalinetrio.store

Alkaline Trio walks among us once again. On January 26, 2024, everyone’s favorite tortured triumvirate will return in Grand Guignol style with Blood, Hair, and Eyeballs, its tenth album and first full length offering of new material to be released in (66)6 years.

Recorded with GRAMMY-winning producer Cameron Webb at Studio 606 in Northridge CA, Blood, Hair, and Eyeballs finds Alkaline Trio stripping its sound down to the skin and bones of its unmistakable sonic spirit, while taking that dark essence to parts previously unknown. Accompanied by the premiere of a fittingly kinetic video directed by Ravi Dhar and featuring pro skaters including Steve Caballero, Chris Cole and more, the album’s first single and title track exemplifies its balance of the eerily familiar and the shock of the new. Oh, and there’s that song/album title…

“My mom worked for years as an emergency room nurse,” says vocalist/guitarist/founder Matt Skiba. “She and her co-workers referred to exceptionally busy nights as ‘blood, hair, and eyeballs’. Well, we’ve been busy making an exceptional record we refer to as Blood, Hair, and Eyeballs, too. We approached this new record in completely new ways. We built the songs together, from the ground up, in the same room which hasn’t happened since the band started. Usually we start with an idea somebody’s already written. This time, we had the unique opportunity to build the songs onto drums recorded at Studio 606 on to two-inch tape using one of the most beautiful-sounding and legendary consoles in rock. It has almost everything to do with how our new record sounds.”

Of the “Blood, Hair, and Eyeballs” video, bassist/vocalist Dan Andriano adds, “Sometimes the full circle nature of life is enough to just completely blow my mind… this is one of those times. Skateboarding was my first love, is my favorite sport, and a community through which I was first introduced to punk rock. So when Matt and I read Ravi’s idea to combine our music with an homage to the Bones Brigade’s ‘The Search For Animal Chin’ and throw some spooky zombies in there… we both dug it right away. The work Ravi and the entire production crew put in was insane and it shows… So to kick off the release of our 10th album with this super fun video featuring Steve Caballero, Chris Cole, Ace, Corey and Shea is so much more than a dream come true, it’s true love. This is not a phase.”

In addition to being a darkly shining exemplar of the Trio’s signature blend of wry lyrical wit and bittersweet melodic sensibility, Blood, Hair, and Eyeballs arrives in a confluence of endings and beginnings—specifically, it’s both the first album to be released via the band’s new label home, Rise Records, and the last to feature longtime member Derek Grant, drummer on every Alkaline Trio record since 2003’s classic Good Mourning.

See below for Blood, Hair, and Eyeballs’ tracklist, as well as a full list of upcoming live dates (with support from Drug Church), on which Skiba and Andriano will be joined by veteran drummer Atom Willard (Against Me!, Rocket from the Crypt). “Playing with Atom is so inspiring,” says Andriano. “His motor is unparalleled.”

“Explosive, emotional and inspired… a back-to-basics immediacy and intensity… The undercurrent holding all of ‘But Here We Are’ together is not an idea so much as raw emotion. Grohl’s melodies are as soaring and anthemic as they’ve sounded in years; his vocals are freshly impassioned and heartfelt.” — THE NEW YORK TIMES

“A fantastic record full of riffs and reflection… so catchy and vibrant, so brimming with wild-eyed wonder… Grohl clearly understands that we honor departed loved ones by building new joys we wish they were around to share.” – NPR

“Dave Grohl gives himself over to arena-sized grief, reckoning, and resolve on the band’s most propulsive and purposeful music of the last two decades… offering earnest hope, fond reminiscence, and skyscraping choruses” — PITCHFORK

“One of the strongest albums of the band’s career… reckoning with the conundrums of human existence through the sheer power of music” — SPIN

“Memorable and meaningful” — USA TODAY

“Aching directness and wounded sweetness make a potent combination here… But Here We Are pulses with the sense that the future happened too quickly, and we’re all having to navigate situations and handle emotions we thought we’d get to much later in life. These songs chart the push through denial into the acceptance of the reality of death and the lifetime journey of bereavement.” — VULTURE

DEPECHE MODE
“MY FAVOURITE STRANGER”
OFFICIAL VIDEO & VINEGAR HILL SESSIONS BOTH LIVE NOW

North American Dates Resume Tomorrow in Austin TX

Photo Credit: Anton Corbijn

Depeche Mode has revealed two strikingly different visual aspects of “My Favourite Stranger,” another standout from its universally acclaimed Memento Mori (Columbia Records), hailed by Allmusic for its “pulsing menace” that “builds to discomfiting yet alluring levels of anxiety.” First is the Anton Corbijn-directed official music video that premiered September 21, taking viewers on a journey to an unknown destination alongside an enigmatic figure with a surprising secret. Next up is today’s unveiling of “My Favourite Stranger (Vinegar Hill Sessions),” the third in a series of intimate and unique pared back arrangements of Memento Mori tracks recorded live at Brooklyn’s Vinegar Hill studios.

On the live front, having kicked off the third leg of the Memento Mori World Tour with a trio of shows at Mexico City’s Foro Sol stadium, Depeche Mode returns to the U.S. tomorrow, September 29, at the Moody Center in Austin, Texas. Following a sold out spring run described as “a death-defying evening” (Los Angeles Times) and “a beautiful, life-affirming display of a band that, 43 years in, still has so much left to give” (Chicago Sun-Times), the tour’s second trek through North America will visit arenas across the continent before wrapping with a mid-December four-night stand in Los Angeles. See below for a full list of dates.

Having sold more than 100 million records and played to more than 35 million fans worldwide, Depeche Mode remains an ever-evolving and singularly influential musical force. Depeche Mode released its critically acclaimed 15th studio album, Memento Mori, on March 24, 2023 alongside the launch of the Memento Mori World Tour, which has since played to well over two million fans and has been extended into 2024 due to overwhelming demand. An indelible inspiration to fans, critics and artists alike, Depeche Mode continues to forge ahead, with the Memento Mori album and tour representing the opening of the newest chapter of a peerless and ongoing legacy.

Artwork by Simon Marchner

As their wildly successful co-headline tour continues to sell out multiple nights at venues from Madison Square Garden to the Hollywood Bowl, The Postal Service and Death Cab for Cutie have today announced Everything Looks Closer From Far Away: The Exhibit Celebrating the 20th Anniversary of Two Landmark Albums: The Postal Service’s Give Up & Death Cab for Cutie’s Transatlanticism, an exclusive exhibit opening September 29th and running through October 29th at the KEXP Gathering Space in Seattle which is open Monday through Friday from 7am-6pm and Saturday through Sunday from 8am-6pm.

Everything Looks Closer From Far Away is a unique and unprecedented deep dive into the worlds of The Postal Service’s Give Up and Death Cab for Cutie’s Transatlanticism, two records that began life as the indie rock soundtrack of 2003 and have since become RIAA Platinum-certified classics celebrated on a current 20th anniversary tour of North American arenas and amphitheaters. Bringing it back to where it all began, the pop cultural time capsule will feature murals, artifacts, large-scale installations, an in-depth timeline of both records and more.

The historic Give Up/Transatlanticism 20th Anniversary Tour will land at Seattle’s Climate Pledge Arena (right next door to the exhibit) for two sold out shows on October 6 and 7.

METALLICA
“Too Far Gone? (Live from MetLife Stadium, East Rutherford, NJ – August 6, 2023)”
Digital Single Out Now
“Too Far Gone?”
Video Directed by Coan “Buddy” Nichols Live Now

Today marks the release of “Too Far Gone? (Live from MetLife Stadium, East Rutherford, NJ – August 6, 2023),” a digital single capturing the debut M72 tour performance of the 72 Seasons standout track as played for some 80,000 fans on night two of the tour’s North American opening weekend. Hailed for “its roaring melody” by the OC Register in their review of Metallica’s recent record-breaking weekend at SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles, “Too Far Gone?” has quickly become a staple of the M72 No Repeat Weekend setlist rotation. Find out for yourself why the song has quickly become a fan favorite by giving “Too Far Gone? (Live from MetLife Stadium, East Rutherford, NJ – August 6, 2023)” a listen HERE.

As for the original studio version of “Too Far Gone?”… it’s been reimagined as a music video directed by Coan “Buddy” Nichols (The Original Skateboarder, The Body Corporate, Deathbowl to Downtown, Love Letters to Skateboarding). Through Nichols’ lens, “Too Far Gone?” becomes the score to raw Metallica performance footage intercut with action shots of pro skater Felipe Nunes. The energy levels of the two scenarios feed off one other, resulting in peak after peak of hyperkinetic intensity—plus a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it cameo from Tony Hawk, who premiered the video yesterday at: https://youtu.be/T-6Cx-VxXxI

Metallica recently completed the first North American swing of its M72 World Tour September 9 in Glendale AZ. The band will make a headlining appearance October 8 at Power Trip at the Empire Polo Club in Indio CA, before M72 resumes with its next No Repeat Weekend taking place November 3 and 5 at the Dome at America’s Center in St. Louis MO.


JENNY LEWIS ANNOUNCES THE JOY’ALL BALL TOUR 

WEST COAST SHOWS CONFIRMED FOR NOVEMBER & DECEMBER

VEVO LIVE SESSION FEATURING “CHERRY BABY” NOW LIVE

“Jenny Lewis, it seems, can do it all…Though Lewis shines in stadiums…her superstardom is more apparent up close, a refusal to shrink her charm to fit a venue where guests nearly piled out the door.” – WASHINGTON POST

“Her voice was pristine as ever…in an instant, she could flip to impressive vocal feats, hitting high notes on ‘Red Bull and Hennessy’ that are rarely heard outside of the safety of studios…And the road-ready driving guitar of ‘Love Feel’ felt messier in the best ways, with Lewis fully inhabiting her rock & roll discipleship”  AUSTIN CHRONICLE

“She was a picture of power — a real-life heroine clad in black leather, wind machine touseling her hair.” – AUSTIN AMERICAN-STATESMAN

Jenny Lewis’ Infectious Energy Lights Up New York…From her vibrato in the torchy ‘Acid Tongue’ to some genuine grit during ‘The Next Messiah,’ Lewis’ voice was strong but floated effortlessly over the instrumentation. She seemed especially rejuvenated by the new material, finding a pocket for album tracks like ‘Apples and Oranges’ and ‘Cherry Baby’ that made them sound like old favorites…her music, past and future, left everyone smiling.” – VARIETY

As the tail end of 2023 swiftly approaches, Jenny Lewis shows no signs of slowing down. As if the release of her fifth solo album, Joy’All (Blue Note/Capitol Records), scoring her first #1 on the Adult Alternative Airplay chart with “Psychos,” hitting the road as support on the Beck and Phoenix co-headline Summer Odyssey tour, in addition to her own headline dates––and now currently on the road for the 20th anniversary Postal Service and Death Cab for Cutie co-headline tour––weren’t enough, Lewis is kicking it up a notch with the announcement of the Joy’All Ball Tour–a leg of west coast dates heading into the holiday season.

The new leg of headlining dates will kick off in late November and feature stops along the west coast, including: Ventura (Ventura Music Hall), San Luis Obispo (Fremont Theater), Healdsburg (Little Saint), Eugene (McDonald Theatre), Seattle (Paramount Theatre), Portland (Roseland Theatre), San Francisco (The Warfield), Santa Ana (The Observatory) and Los Angeles (Hollywood Palladium).

BEASTIE BOYS SQUARE
Mike Diamond and Adam Horovitz to Attend Unveiling
Site of Paul’s Boutique Album Cover Photo
Corner of Ludlow & Rivington Streets, Lower East Side NYC
Saturday, September 9, 12:00p to 2:00 pm

In commemoration of the unveiling of Beastie Boys Square and 50 years of Hip-Hop, Mike Diamond (Mike D) and Adam Horovitz (Adrock), in association with The City of New York and Council Member Chris Marte, will be celebrating in the Lower East Side on September 9 beginning at 12:00 pm. on Rivington Street between Ludlow and Essex Streets. The celebration will go on until 2:00 p.m., and will feature a special guest DJ set by Jon Bless HiFi System, pop-up activations and more.
 
Diamond and Horovitz will be in attendance for the dedication of Beastie Boys Square, a renaming of the corner of Ludlow and Rivington Streets, the site where the iconic gatefold cover of the band’s sophomore album Paul’s Boutique was shot.
 
The christening of Beastie Boys Square marks another milestone in Beastie Boys’ decades-long relationship with New York City. Beastie Boys and NYC have been inextricably intertwined since the band was formed at the late Adam “MCA” Yauch’s 17th birthday in uptown Manhattan, quickly becoming a staple of the city’s hardcore punk underground. The relationship grew in depth and complexity as the trio’s debut album Licensed to Ill became the first rap record to hit #1 on the US album chart, reaching an early apex with the 1989 release of Paul’s Boutique. Sorely under-appreciated upon its original release, Paul’s Boutique has since grown dramatically in stature — often referred to as the “Sgt. Pepper’s of hip hop,” certified double platinum by the RIAA for sales of 2 million, and appearing on all-time best-of lists including TIME, Rolling Stone, Pitchfork, SPIN, and many more.
 
Paul’s Boutique also carries the distinction of being arguably the Beastie Boys album most steeped in New York culture (despite being recorded in Los Angeles), with lyrical references including the Ramones, Brooklyn, Queens, the Bronx, the Village, Chrystie Street, the D Train, Ed Koch, the Knicks, the Yankees, Shea Stadium, the Palladium, Phil Rizzuto, the Atlantic Antic, the New York Post, El Diario, Bernard Goetz, Broadway, Jazzy Jay, Bad Brains, and more.
 
Additionally, the ongoing celebration of the 50 years of Hip-Hop includes the cinema debut of the Apple Original Film Beastie Boys Story, directed by Beastie Boys collaborator and Academy Award winner Spike Jonze, at the IFC Center in Greenwich Village with showings on both Friday, September 8 and Saturday, September 9 at 11:30pm. 
 
And last, but certainly not least, SiriusXM will be relaunching their exclusive Beastie Boys Channel this Thursday, September 7th. Tune in to channel 105 for classics, deep cuts, live recordings and more.
