It’s going to be a year since the remaining members of the now-defunct Lostprophets and Thursday frontman Geoff Rickly revealed they had joined forces and created a new band.

Now, almost a year after that announcement was made, No Devotion have officially confirmed the release of their long-awaited debut record for later this year. Since their inception, the band has released a couple of tracks and a singles boxset featuring those songs.

The debut album will be titled Permanence and is slated to be released on Sept. 25 through Rickly’s own record label, Collect Records.

In addition to the title of the record as well as its release date, the band have also revealed the complete track list and a teaser for the album which feature a snippet of a new song titled “Death Rattle.”

Watch the teaser here.

Permanence will feature 11 tracks, three of which had been previously released (“Eyeshadow,” “10,000 Summers,” and”Stay”).

The complete track list for Permanence can be seen below.

PERMANENCE TRACK LIST:

01. “Break”
02. “Permanent Sunlight”
03. “Eyeshadow”

Watch the Wonder Years’ Video for “Cardinals”

image

Less than 12 hours after revealing a lot of news to their fans, The Wonder Years have unveiled the music video for the first single off of their fifth studio album.

Though we were given the album name (No Closer to Heaven), the release date (Sept. 4), the complete track list, and the cover art, the band had decided to keep the name of the first single a secret, but were kind enough to let everyone know it would be released at midnight.

Sadly, some of us were asleep, so it was good to know that the video was already available on the internet when we logged on this morning.

The lead single is titled “Cardinals” and the music video features frontman Dan Campbell carrying drummer Mike Kennedy down a suburban street lined with houses, towards an ambulance. But as they reach it, the ambulance pulls a troll move.

Wonder if it’s a metaphor for something?

Check out the music video for “Cardinals” below.

While the band’s new album doesn’t drop for another couple of months, were pretty sure some new tracks are going to start finding their way onto the band’s set list during the Vans Warped Tour.

It’s just a hunch, now that the cat is out of the bag.

Bullet for My Valentine Unveil “War” Video

Almost a week after the audio release of their new single, Bullet For My Valentine have given fans the official music video for “You Want a Battle? (Here’s a War).”

The video follows a family as they have reached rock bottom due to the father and all his abuse. Instead of “taking it anymore” (like the lyrics say), they decided that it’s time to take care of the negative aspect of their life. The video also features shots of the band performing the song.

Check out the music video below.

“You Want a Battle? (Here’s a War)” will join lead single “No Way Out” and “Broken”(it made its debut during the group’s performance at the Camden Rocks Festival) on Venom, the Welsh band’s fifth studio album. The record is set to be released on Aug. 14 through RCA Records.

Foo Fighters Confirm North American Tour is Still On

Following the massive injury Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl suffered after missing the edge of the stage in Sweden a couple of weeks ago, the band, reluctantly, had to cancel all European tour dates they had previously scheduled including last weekend’s Glastonbury Festival.

Since the cancellation announcement was made, fans of the band in North America were beginning to wonder if their upcoming tour would also be affected because of Grohl’s injuries. Turns out, the North American tour is completely safe from cancellation and will go on as scheduled.

Taking to Twitter, the band posted a simple tweet confirming the tour will kick off this Saturday, July 4, at the R.F.K. Stadium in Washington D.C. for the band’s Fourth of July Bash.

The Fourth of July Bash kick off is not going to be like any other tour stops; it’s going to be a party. The band had announced that the fourth of July tour stop is going to be a party to celebrate the band’s self-titled, debut record which will officially turn 20 on the Fourth of July.

Like the band needed any other reason to light up fireworks and rock out.

Special guests like Joan Jett, Heart, LL Cool J, and many more are slated to appear at the show on Saturday.

The complete list of Summer/Fall tour dates can be seen below.

Brand New Album Definitely in the Works

image

“Are Brand New really working on a new album? Will it be done by the year’s end? Are they just trolling their dedicated fan base? Come on Jesse, we need answers!”

If any of those questions and comments sounds like something you or a friend has said since early this year when Brand New debuted a couple of never-before-heard songs, then you are definitely part of the fan base waiting, impatiently, for the band’s follow-up to 2009’s Daisy.

For months now, there have been rumors that the band were working on new music to, hopefully, put out soon. Sadly, it seemed to be just that at the time; rumors.

Things changed earlier today when an interview with frontman Jesse Lacey was uploaded online. The interview, which coincides with the band’s show in Spain, was done by Spain-based publication, Rockzone.

In the interview, Lacey was asked the question everyone has been waiting for; is there new music?

Turns out, there is.

Considering the publication is written in Spanish, we attempted to translate the part where Lacey speaks about the “in-the-works” song.

“Yes, I don’t have a problem talking about that with you. You are the first with whom I have had an interview with in a long time. We have a new record to release. There is no secret. The thing is, it’s not ready, so to speak. We’re hoping to release it this year, at least that’s what we’re aiming for. We don’t know if it’s going to be an EP with seven songs or so, or a traditional EP of 14 songs. We have many songs we’ve worked on, but hey, I suppose at times you have to deal with what’s underneath and rest a little, like I told you before. It’s something we have to adapt to. One day, it looks like we’ll be ready to release it and then the next day, it feels like we’re further away from releasing it.”

Kind of reassuring to fans. We suppose.

To read the complete interview which has been posted online in the form of screen shots, that can be seen here.

Florence and the Machine Cover the Foo Fighters at Glastonbury

We all know the story of how the Foo Fighters had to cancel all their European tour dates due to a massive injury frontman Dave Grohl sustained during the group’s show in Sweden a few weeks ago.

One of those cancellations was their gig at the Glastonbury Festival in London.

Florence and the Machine quickly swooped in to volunteer to take over for the band during their now vacant headlining slot on Friday’s (June 26) line-up. We have our own theory that it’s because frontwoman Florence Welch knows what it’s like to have to cancel shows due to a serious injury; the singer busted her foot earlier this year at Coachella and was stuck sitting on a stool during her performance until recently.

Turns out, the band decided to pay tribute to their predecessor by performing their own version of “Times Like These.”

Welch began by telling the audience, “We’d like to dedicate this next song to the legend and all around incredible human being Dave Grohl. He was so incredibly kind and supportive to us when we were first starting out, and we were so sad to hear he broke his leg.”

Check out the video below

Florence and the Machine are currently in the middle of their Summer festival tour which has them playing several music festivals across the world. After that, they will pack their bags in the Fall and come to the United States for a U.S. tour in support of How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful.

As for the Foo Fighters, there has been no update on whether they will be canceling any of their U.S. tour dates which is slated to begin next Saturday, July 4.
