Hawthorne Heights Reveal U.S. “Silence in Black and White” Tour Dates


Hawthorne Heights’ The Silence in Black and White will officially be turning ten this year and in honor of the anniversary of their debut album, the Ohio-based band had announced that they would be heading out on a world tour in support of it. The initial tour for it had already begun in Europe earlier this month and is still going (tonight the Ohio is for Lovers band are in Cologne, Germany), but earlier in the day, the band revealed they have added some tour stops in the United States.

Beginning on May 22, the band will begin their home country portion of the tour in Whitesburg, KY for two weeks. No word yet on whether the two weeks are the only dates for “The Silence in Black and White Tour” or if more dates will be coming in the near future.

Coldplay to Perform at BBC Radio 1′s Big Weekend


With Coldplay’s announcement last week that they would be performing six intimate shows in total around the world in support of their upcoming new album, fans of the group are hoping that the six show are not the only ones. This morning, Coldplay fans in the United Kingdom were given good news; they will be performing ta this year’s BBC Radio 1′s Big Weekend.

The free show takes place is Glasgow Green On May 24 and 25 with Coldplay performing that Saturday, the 24th. The news came when the band were at the radio station to perform a few songs including a new one titled “Ocean.”

“We’re very thrilled to be asked, thank you so much… We’re all pleased to be here, I speak for everyone when I say that,” said frontman Chris Martin.

“We are absolutely thrilled to have been asked to play Radio 1′s Big Weekend in Glasgow this year. Playing in Glasgow is always so much fun and Radio 1 have always been wonderful to us so it couldn’t really be any better!” drummer Will Champion followed up.

Also performing at the annual event will be Pharrell Williams, The 1975, Paolo Nutini and Rita Ora. The weekend will officially begin on Friday, May 23 with Radio 1 personalities, Annie Mac, Pete Tong, Zane Lowe and Danny Howard, hosting a massive party with a line-up of DJs.

But if you are thinking about heading over to Glasgow for the show in an attempt to get into the event, sadly all 50,000 tickets that were available for the show were given out in just 35 minutes. It’s not Lollapalooza speed, but still, that’s something. As of now, the full line-up for the show has not been revealed, but according to source, it should be revealed sometime this month.

For now, listen to the live version of their new song “Ocean” from Ghost Stories.

Ryan Lewis and Family Start “The 30/30 Project”


Ryan Lewis might be known as “that guy that stands next to Macklemore,” but the producer who is now a Grammy-winner along with his friend, is beginning to make a name for himself. Though the legacy he is trying to start might not be completely music related, it is related to something that is close to Lewis; a charity to help raise money to build health centers around the world to benefit people living with HIV.

Lewis revealed on Tuesday through his website, the one he shares with Macklemore, that his mother, Julie Lewis, has been living with the deadly disease for 30 years. In honor of her survival, Lewis and his family have begun to raise money for a project called “The 30/30 Project.”

The video begins with Lewis outlining the last couple of years that led to his international success after “Thrift Shop” made him and Macklemore a household name. After the typical, often told success story, the video shifts to the untold, behind-the-scenes story no one has ever heard before.

That’s where he begins to tell the untold story of what helped motivate him and about the strongest woman he knows; his mother. The narration continues with Lewis’ two sisters, his mother and his father speaking about how lucky she was not to fall victim of the disease unlike those who sadly passed away. After giving birth to her oldest daughter, Lewis’ mother was given a blood transfusion that was HIV positive at a time that blood was not being tested beforehand. Though her two youngest children (Ryan’s other sister and himself) had a 25% chance of getting the disease, they were lucky as well.

The project’s final goal is to reach $100,000 for the first health care center in Malawi and for those wanting to donate, an IndieGoGo campaign has already been started in an attempt to help achieve Julie Lewis’ goal to help out big. As of now, the fundraiser has received over $30,000 with 29 days still to go.

Boston Calling 2014 Reveal Line-Up


Festival season is in full effect now and another one has just announced its lineup.

Boston Calling has announced the artists that will be taking the stages at this year’s event. The show, which will take place during the weekend of September 5-7 will include headlining acts such as The Replacements, Lorde, The National, Nas and the Roots, Childish Gambino, the 1975 and many more. The full lineup list can be seen below.


By the time Boston Calling is set to begin, many of the artists on the list would have already performed at several other festivals that have taken place during the Spring and Summer. This past weekend, Lorde and The Replacements took the stage at Coachella for the second time.

Unlike Lorde, The Replacements got a little help from Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong on vocals due to Replacements frontman Paul Westerberg suffering from a reported back injury. Here’s hoping that by September he’ll be able to perform.

Replacement’s manager, Darren Hill, revealed that the reconstructed band have been asked to play almost every festival this year, but have been choosy about which to do. Hill admits the band decided on Boston Calling because of the connection that they have to the scene.

“The Replacements always had an affinity, a really strong connection, to Boston and the Boston scene,” said Hill. “I’m sure you can expect a surprise in Boston.”

Pre-sale tickets for the three-day show will go on sale beginning Thursday through Ticketmaster. Three-day general admission passes will run you $150 while the VIP passes cost $250.

Watch the official announcement from festival organizers.

Lily Allen Goes ‘Sheezus’ in New Music Video


Call her SHEEZUS.

After the title track from her upcoming new album had been leaked earlier in the day, Lily Allen has gone ahead and premiered the music video for it

“Sheezus” marks the fourth video that has been released from the British singer’s new album which is set to hit shelves on May 5 through Regal Records.

If you though that “Air Balloon” meant a nicer Allen was on the horizon with the upcoming record, all you need to do is think back at the fact that such a stink was started over her first single, “Hard Out Here.” In the song, she goes ahead and name drops some of pop’s biggest star such as Beyoncé, Katy Perry, Lady Gaga, Rihanna and Lorde claiming that none of them can sit back and let another take the number one spot on the charts.

Of course they can’t sit back and let some other pop star claim that title spot, Lily; the record labels won’t allow that! You know that.

Oh yeah, there’s also a bit where she talks about periods.

Check out the video below for the song which features Allen dressed up like a rapper in a hoodie with black lights in something that feels very reminiscent to something that MTV would have played back in the 90s.

Stream Conor Oberst’s “Fast Friends”


Though Record Store Day was three days ago, it doesn’t mean that all the special songs and records that were purchased won’t be making their way onto the internet.

Previously we have had the chance to listen to fun.’s debut demo, Point and Light, Jack White gave us two versions of his new track “Lazaretto,” Green Day releases Demolicious and Paramore released a B-side in honor of the music lover’s favorite holiday. We can now add a B-side track titled “Fast Friends” from Conor Oberst to that list.

This new B-side is the first piece of news that we have gotten from the Bright Eyes frontman since those accusations against him were made earlier this year. Another bright side for the singer, his new album Upside Down Mountain will be available on May 21 through Nonesuch Records.

Until then, you can stream Oberst’s “Fast Friends” below until his new record is officially on shelves in a month’s time.

Saosin to Head Out on Mini-Tour with Anthony Green


Fans of Saosin, it looks like the reunion featuring former frontman Anthony Green was not just a one shot deal, because it was announced today that the original line-up will be heading out on a mini-tour.

The news of that the Circa Survive frontman would be returning to his former band broke a few months back when Skate and Surf Festival organizers revealed that Saosin would be performing with Green on vocals. For those wanting to see the original line-up, but couldn’t find a way to get to Asbury Park, NJ for the two-day festival seemed to be out of luck, but their wished just might have been answered.

All morning, there had been a rumors on the internet that the original line-up would be taking to the touring circuit with Green in tow. Green confirmed the mini-tour this afternoon when he posted on his Instagram a four-day tour schedule beginning with Skate and Surf on May 17.

For now, the other three dates on the posted schedule are all taking place in California (one in Pomona, one in Los Angeles and one in San Diego), but where else would you have a mini-tour than in your own home state?

The mini-tour and return of the original line-up comes almost eleven years after the release of their breakout EP, Translating the Name.
