Fresh off a world tour playing to over 1.5 million delighted fans across 24 countries, Gorillaz are kicking off 2023 with the highly anticipated release of brand new track ‘Silent Running ft. Adeleye Omotayo’. Listen here

‘Silent Running ft. Adeleye Omotayo’ is taken from the band’s upcoming new studio album Cracker Island and was the first track worked on by Gorillaz and eight-time Grammy Award-winning producer/multi-instrumentalist/songwriter extraordinaire Greg Kurstin at his studio in Los Angeles last year. Those early sessions revealed an evocative synth-led ‘80’s sound that ultimately set the tone for the album sonically. ‘Silent Running’ features vocalist and long-time Gorillaz performer Adeleye Omotayo, and has what Albarn describes as “… that sort of mesmerising dreamlike state you get in when you’re just following some train of thought.”

Gorillaz frontman 2D added – “Sometimes I get well lost and end up in the wrong place but then it turns out that’s where I was meant to be going anyway.”

The new single release comes ahead of an epic music video for ‘Silent Running ft Adeleye Omotayo’, directed by artist and Gorillaz co-creator Jamie Hewlett and the Emmy-nominated Nexus Studios director, Fx Goby, coming to a screen near you soon. Watch trailer here

Gorillaz will return to North America this Spring, with a full live band performance – to include surprise guests – at Coachella on Friday the 14th and Friday the 21st of April 2023. 

The brand new studio album from Gorillaz titled Cracker Island is out February 24th, 2023 on Warner Records.

“IMPERA was my favorite rock album of 2022… I found out along the way that Tobias is a bit of a fan of DL, so I guess it was inevitable we’d both find out about each other! Once we’d been introduced to the idea of working together it just snowballed organically and I’m thrilled that I got to sing on what is my favorite song from that album!”—Joe Elliott

Look what you’ve done to this rock n roll clown… Ghost’s “Spillways” has undergone a transfiguration to include guest vocals from rock legend and avowed Ghost fan Joe Elliott of Def Leppard. To hear this new facet of this “sweetly constructed rock tune” (The New York Times) from Ghost’s American Music Award-winning IMPERA, go to https://i.ghost-official.com/spillwaysDL

To witness Joe Elliott’s phantasmagorical journey into the world of Ghost, open Chapter 15: Meanwhile in Dublin. The newest installment in Ghost’s long running series of webisodes, Chapter 15 documents a karaoke session that goes awry in spectacular and supernatural fashion (and if you’re feeling like singing along, check out the “Spillways (ft. Joe Elliott)” lyric video at https://i.ghost-official.com/SpillwaysDLVid).

The original version of “Spillways,” currently Top 5 at Active Rock Radio and having generated some 50 million streams globally, can be found on Ghost’s IMPERA. Released March 11, 2022, IMPERA has moved nearly 500,000 albums worldwide, won the American Music Award for Favorite Rock Album 2022, and received a GRAMMY nomination for Best Metal Performance (“Call Me Little Sunshine”). Best of 2022 accolades included Ghost landing at #1 on Spotify’s Best of Kickass Metal 2022, while cover stories in Revolver and Metal Hammer proclaimed IMPERA #1 Album of 2022 and Loudwire has named Ghost 2022 Artist of the Year. As Consequence noted in its Top Metal & Hard Rock Albums of 2022 roundup, “Few rock bands are as grand and ambitious-sounding as Ghost nowadays.” With all of the above plus the 70 date IMPERATOUR that saw the Wall Street Journal anoint Ghost “the next generation of arena stars” and an iHeartRadio Awards 2023 nomination for Rock Artist of the Year, that ambition is primed to take the band to further and unforeseen heights in 2023.

1964: Eyes of the Storm Photographs and Reflections by Paul McCartney Out June 13th

1964: Eyes of the Storm

Photographs and Reflections by Paul McCartney

Publishing June 13th
With additional essays by Jill Lepore, Nicholas Cullinan
and Rosie Broadley

In 2020, an extraordinary trove of nearly a thousand photographs taken by Paul McCartney on a 35mm camera was re-discovered in his archive. They intimately record the months towards the end of 1963 and beginning of 1964 when Beatlemania erupted in the UK and, after the band’s first visit to the USA, they became the most famous people on the planet. The photographs are McCartney’s personal record of this explosive time, when they, The Beatles, were inside looking out and were the ‘Eyes of the Storm’.

1964: Eyes of the Storm presents 275 of McCartney’s photographs from the six cities of these intense, legendary months – Liverpool, London, Paris, New York, Washington, D.C. and Miami – and many never-before-seen portraits of John, George and Ringo. In his Foreword and Introductions to these city portfolios, McCartney remembers ‘what else can you call it – pandemonium’ and conveys his impressions of Britain and America in 1964 – the moment when the culture changed and the Sixties really began.

“Anyone who rediscovers a personal relic or family treasure is instantly flooded with memories and emotions, which then trigger associations buried in the haze of time. This was exactly my experience in seeing these photos, all taken over an intense three-month period of travel, culminating in February 1964. It was a wonderful sensation to be plunged right back. Here was my own record of our first huge trip, a photographic journal of The Beatles in six cities, beginning in Liverpool and London, followed by Paris (where John and I had been ordinary hitchhikers three years before), and then what we regarded as the big time, our first visit as a group to America”

Paul McCartney

1964: Eyes of the Storm includes:

ABOUT BECK:
2022 Rock & Roll Hall of Fame nominee and eight-time Grammy-winner Beck has traveled light years from his emergence as a reluctant generational spokesperson when “Loser” exploded into a ubiquitous 1994 smash. Beck’s singular vision has since seen him utilize all manners and eras of music, blazing a path into the future while foraging through the past.

Surfacing just as mainstream and alternative intersected, no small thanks to his 1994 debut Mellow Gold, Beck quickly confounded expectations with subsequent releases including the lo-fi folk of One Foot in the Grave and 1996’s multi-platinum Odelay—which has remained a cultural touchstone for generations.

Beck’s creative evolution has always progressed at an exponential rate.  From the atmospherics of 1998’s Mutations and the fluorescent funk of 1999’s Midnite Vultures, the somber reflections of 2002’s Sea Change, 2005’s tour de force Guero and 2006’s sprawling The Information, 2008’s acclaimed Modern Guilt, 2014’s Album of the Year Grammy-winning Morning Phase, the “euphoric blast of experimental pop” (Rolling Stone) that was 2017’s Colors and his 2019 “best in a decade” (People) Hyperspace… No Beck record has ever sounded like its predecessor — though The New York Times notes a consistent thread: “Though Beck’s records through the years have tended toward maximalism, a kind of meticulous sonic gorgeousness, melody remains central to his art.”

ABOUT PHOENIX:
Phoenix is a critically-acclaimed band from France. Born out of high school friendships in Versailles, Phoenix have been nominated twice for Grammy awards, winning “Best Alternative Album” in 2010 for their record Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix which included hit singles “1901” and “Lisztomania.”  They also won “Best Rock Album” in 2014 for Bankrupt! at the French Victoires de La Musique. 

Known for their sleek, highly stylized sonics and incredible, infectious melodies, Phoenix recently released their critically lauded new album Alpha Zulu featuring current single “Tonight” with Ezra Koenig. The band has headlined festivals including Coachella, Rock en Seine and Governors Ball They have sold out New York City’s prestigious Madison Square Garden and Los Angeles’ Hollywood Bowl, and played festivals from Glastonbury (UK) to Vieilles Charrues (FR) to Summer Sonic (JPN) and more around the globe.

SINGLE DAY TICKETS ON SALE TODAY AT 
METALLICA.COM

Metallica has unveiled a second glimpse into the intensity and expanse of its forthcoming 12th studio album, 72 Seasons, in the form of “Screaming Suicide.” The newly released album track is now available to stream and download, and as an instant grat with all 72 Seasons pre-orders—as well as a video directed by Tim Saccenti, which can be seen here.

“Screaming Suicide addresses the taboo word of suicide,” says James Hetfield. “The intention is to communicate about the darkness we feel inside. It’s ridiculous to think we should deny that we have these thoughts. At one point or another I believe most people have thought about it. To face it is to speak the unspoken. If it’s a human experience, we should be able to talk about it. You are not alone.”

“Screaming Suicide” follows in the path blazed by “Lux Æterna” — the album’s first single and video, hailed upon its November 28, 2022 release as “thundering, breakneck” (Billboard), “gut-punching” (Rolling Stone) and “blistering” (USA Today). 72 Seasons will be released April 14 via Metallica’s own Blackened Recordings. Produced by Greg Fidelman with Hetfield & Ulrich, and clocking in at over 77 minutes, the 12-track 72 Seasons is Metallica’s first full length collection of new material since 2016’s Hardwired…To Self-Destruct. The album will be released in formats including 2LP 140g black vinyl and limited edition variants, CD and digital—for a full listing of configurations, pre-orders and further information, go to metallica.com/72-seasons-info.

Today also marks the on-sale of single day tickets to all shows on Metallica’s M72 world tour at ticketmaster.com. Presented worldwide by Liquid Death and Blackened American Whiskey (in North America only) and promoted by Live Nation, M72 will see the band playing two nights in every city it visits—with each No Repeat Weekend featuring two completely different setlists and support lineups. The M72 tour will feature a bold new in-the-round stage design that relocates the famed Metallica Snake Pit to center stage, as well as the I Disappear full-tour pass and more. For further information on single day and two day tickets, enhanced experiences and more, go to Metallica Tour

A portion of proceeds from every ticket sold will go to Metallica’s All Within My Hands foundation. Founded in 2017, AWMH’s efforts to assist and enrich the lives of members of the communities who have supported the band have raised nearly $13 million – providing $5.9 million in grants to career and technical education programs in the US, over $2.5 million to combat food insecurity, and more than $3.2 million to disaster relief efforts worldwide.

Featuring a murderers’ row of modern day rock icons including the Iggy Pop & The Losers lineup of Watt, McKagan and Smith, EVERY LOSER sets Iggy’s lyrical aggressions toward physical and existential nemeses atop a rock solid foundation provided by members of Blink 182 (Travis Barker), Foo Fighters (Taylor Hawkins), Guns N’ Roses (Duff McKagan), Jane’s Addiction (Chris Chaney, Dave Navarro, Eric Avery), Pearl Jam (Josh Klinghoffer, Stone Gossard) and Red Hot Chili Peppers (Klinghoffer, Chad Smith). The result is 11 songs by the man who refused to go gently into that good night on Free, and is once again charging fearlessly at life itself on EVERY LOSER.

2022 continues to be a banner year for Ghost. In the nine months since its March 11 release, IMPERA has moved nearly 500,000 albums worldwide, won the American Music Award for Favorite Rock Album 2022, and has received a GRAMMY nomination for Best Metal Performance (“Call Me Little Sunshine”). Year-end accolades continue to pour in, with Ghost landing at #1 on Spotify’s Best of Kickass Metal 2022, while cover stories in Revolver and Metal Hammer have proclaimed IMPERA #1 Album of 2022 and Loudwire has named Ghost 2022 Artist of the Year. Ghost’s momentum refuses to let up across digital platforms, social media and radio, with the band currently charting at  #5 YouTube Biggest Movers, #18 Tik Tok Trends and #7 on the Spotify Viral chart, while traditional radio has seen Ghost dominate Active Rock as #1 Most Picked Rock Album (All Access) and #3 Most Played Artist 2022 (Mediabase), as “Mary On A Cross” begins to make inroads at Alternative… As CONSEQUENCE noted in its Top Metal & Hard Rock Albums of 2022 roundup, “Few rock bands are as grand and ambitious-sounding as Ghost nowadays.” With all of the above plus the 70 date IMPERATOUR that moved the Wall Street Journal to proclaim Ghost “the next generation of arena stars,” that ambition is primed to take the band to further and unforeseen heights in 2023.

Fresh off the heels of announcing the highly anticipated forthcoming record EVERY LOSER (Atlantic Records/Gold Tooth Records) and “buzz-bombing, hard-riffing rock” (NEW YORK TIMES) single “Frenzy,” which recently debuted on Billboard’s Mainstream Rock Airplay chart, Iggy Pop has unleashed a second track to whet our collective appetites–”Strung Out Johnny,” available HERE.

Along with the brand new single, Iggy Pop has also confirmed four new live dates spanning the west coast. Kicking off in Los Angeles on April 20, the Godfather of Punk’s raw power will be in full force as he performs tracks off his impending 19th solo album.
