Reports: The Killers to release new album in the fall

Update:

Surprise! Listen to a snippet of “The Man” now:


It’s been five years since The Killers released their last studio album, so could things change this upcoming fall? On Friday (June 9), a report surfaced that fans could be a seeing a brand new album from the Las Vegas band as soon as late September. Early Friday morning, rumors began to circulate about the release time frame when Fox Sports Australia’s Fox Footy revealed that the band would be one of the headliners at this year’s Australian Football League’s grand final.

While the AFL has refused to verify its entertainment booking for the major event, Fox Footy says it was confirmed by “music industry sources.” In addition to their first show in Australia since Big Day Out in 2013, the group will also reportedly release their new album ten days before the headlining gig.

The AFL’s showcase event is set to take place on Saturday, Sept. 30 which means the still-unconfirmed new album will be released on Wednesday, Sept. 20. As it has been pointed out by several publications, new albums are typically released on Fridays, not Wednesdays (it used to be Tuesdays, but that changed in 2015).

While everything at this point is just hearsay, there may be further evidence of the band releasing a new song as soon as next week. In the same report, Fox Footy also claims that the band will release a new song titled “The Man” on Thursday, June 15. Last week, the band posted an image of frontman Brandon Flowers wearing a leather jacket with “THE MAN” sprawled across the back. Then, on Thursday (June 8), the band posted a link to a mailing list sign up on Twitter with the accompanying message, “Hear new music from The Killers before anyone else.”

The Killers’ last studio album was 2012’s Battle Born. Last year, they collected all their past Christmas singles and released them as Don’t Waste Your Wishes.

Blink-182 fight boredom in video for ‘Bored to Death’

image

It’s been over a month since blink-182 blessed fans with their comeback single, “Bored to Death.” On Monday (June 20), the pop-punk giants gave their fans the music video for the lead track from their upcoming release. The music video begins with a teenager, sitting inside of a classroom, a scissor in hand scrapping something onto the table top before dozing off. Before long, the school bell rings marking freedom.

The video follows the teenager as he meets up with his friends in an abandoned parking lot as he goes about his afternoon doing things like riding around in a car, hanging out in a record store, and swimming in someone’s pool (without permission). In between shots of the “punk” and his friends, there are clips of blink performing in what appears to be an intimate club with a massive crowd. At the end of it all, the “punk” and his friends all end up at the blink-182, no longer ‘bored to death.’ Check out the music video for “Bored to Death” below.

“Bored to Death” is the lead single off of blink-182’s upcoming new record, California. Previously, the band release several new tunes including “Built this Pool,” “Brohemian Rhapsody,” and “Rabbit Hole.” California is set to be released on July 1 through BMG.

In support of their seventh studio album (and first with Matt Skiba on guitar), blink-182 will head out on one of the summer’s most anticipated tours. The trek will feature support from A Day to Remember, All Time Low, The All-American Rejects, and DJ Spider. The complete list of upcoming tour dates can currently be found here.

California is the highly-anticipated follow-up to blink’s 2011 release, Neighborhoods.

Listen to Blink-182’s new single, ‘Rabbit Hole’

image

It’s been over a month since Blink-182 hit the ground running when they release the first single off of their upcoming seventh studio album. After releasing “Bored to Death,” announcing a massive summer tour, and giving fans a free download of “Built this Pool,” you would think the pop-punk pioneers would relax a little bit? Over the weekend, the band had teased that they would be debuting a brand new song this week and as promised, they pulled through.

On Wednesday (June 8), Blink-182, or rather drummer Travis Barker, headed over to Zane Lowe’s Apple Music radio show. On the show, the sticksman premiered the group’s latest single, “Rabbit Hole.” The full version of the barely two-and-a-half minute song can be streamed below.

“Rabbit Hole” will join “Built this Pool” and lead single “Bored to Death” on Blink-182’s upcoming new album, California. California is set to be released on July 1 through BMG. In support of the new record, Blink-182 will head out on a massive summer tour.

The summer tour will not only feature the California pop-punkers, but also the All-American Rejects, All Time Low, A Day to Remember, and DJ Spider. The daily lineup varies from tour stop to tour stop, so it might be wise to check the tour dates to ensure that your favorite acts will ht the stage that night. The complete list of tour dates can be seen here.

California is the follow-up to Blink-182’s 2011 release, Neighborhoods.

A Day to Remember announce ‘Bad Vibrations,’ unleash new song

It’s been a couple of months since A Day to Remember unleashed a brand new song (“Paranoia”) to their unsuspecting fan base. At the time, the group had told fans not to read too much into the new song when speculation began that there would be a new record on the horizon (don’t mind the fact that there was a new song and a short tour in their immediate future). On Thursday (June 2), the Florida-based band sidetracked fans by announcing the release of their fifth studio album.

A Day to Remember’s new album will be titled Bad Vibrations and is set to be released on Aug. 19 through the band’s own record label, ADTR Records but distributed by Epitaph Records. In addition to the new album announcement, the group also released the music video for the first official single off of the impending record/title track. Watch the music video for “Bad Vibrations” below while the complete 11-track list can be seen below that, and yes, “Paranoia” is included on the new record.

M83 Announce New Album, Stream New Song

M83’s return just got serious. On Tuesday (March 1), the electronic act announced that their new album will be titled Junk and is set to be released this spring. In addition to the album title and release date, the Anthony Gonzalez-led act premiered the lead single from the track on Annie Mac’s BBC Radio 1 show. The new track is titled “Do It, Try It.”

In a press release, Gonzalez had the following to say about the new album and why he chose “junk” as the impending record’s title. “Anything we create today is going to end up being space junk at one point anyway, and I find it really fascinating and scary at the same time – beautiful too in a way. I have this image of pieces of humanity floating in space, lost forever. It also means that nowadays everything goes so fast and everybody is kind of throwing away art in a certain manner. People will listen to an album for instance and just pick a track they like to put on a playlist. They’re not going to take the time to listen to an album anymore because they have to jump on the next thing.”

“Do It, Try It” can be streamed here. Junk is scheduled to be released on April 8 through Mute Records. The track list for the new album as well as M83’s upcoming tour dates can be seen below. Junk is the follow-up to 2011’s much-celebrated Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming.

‘That’s the Spirit,’ Bring Me the Horizon

A couple of weeks after unveiling their first new song in almost a year, Bring Me the Horizon have now revealed to fans the name of their upcoming new album. As it turns out, all those tweets from band members reading “That’s the Spirit” was not just a reference to their lead single “Happy,” rather it was them informing fans that That’s the Spirit is the name of their fifth studio album.

In addition to the album title, the band have also revealed that the new record will be released on Sept. 11 through Columbia Records. Last week, the band made headlines once again when it was revealed they had left their former record label (for US releases, at least), Epitaph Records, for major label, Columbia.

While the album title and release date are a good start, the band finished giving their fan base a heart attack when they revealed that the second single from the record, “Throne” will make its debut on Thursday, July 23, at 7:20 p.m. on BBC Radio 1. The album art for “Throne” can be seen below.

In a recent interview with NME, frontman Oli Sykes and newcomer Jordan Fish talked about the new record and how it was heavily influenced by where they recorded the new 12-track record; the Greek island of Santorini (the location where Mamma Mia! takes place).

Sykes also explained to the publication how the album is loosely a concept album revolving around the darker side of life.

“It’s a celebration of depression,” explained Sykes.

“A way of making light of it. ‘That’s The Spirit’ – it’s quite a depressing phrase when you think about it – the sort of thing you only ever use when you know there’s no positive answer to the situation.”

That’s the Spirit is the follow-up to 2013’s Sempiternal.

Simple Plan to Release New Song Next Week

That new Simple Plan album the band have been teasing about for what feels like a years might be coming our way sooner than we thought.

Last night, Simple Plan guitarist Sébastien Lefebvre revealed that the lead single from the band’s fifth studio album would be making its debut next week on his show on Idobi Radio. The episode that will feature the brand new track will air next Wednesday, June 24, at 8 p.m. EST.

Back in April, drummer Chuck Comeau had hinted during an interview with Tribute Magazine that the band’s new record had a projected release time frame of “late Summer/early Fall.

“As far as the actual record release, we don’t have an official date yet, but I’m thinking end of Summer, early Fall is our target, so we are working every day making sure we can meet that deadline,” said Comeau.

For fans of the band who happen to follow them on their social media accounts, it should not come as a surprise that the album will be heading our way soon. The band have not been shy about posting about the soon-to-be released album that does not have an official name yet; it’s been referred to as “SPAlbum5.”

This marks the band’s new album since 2013’s Get Your Heart On-The Second Coming! EP, the continuation to 2011’s Get Your Heart On.

The Story So Far Release New Single, New Album Info

image

The Story So Far’s new album will be heading our way a lot sooner than we anticipated.

Over the weekend, the California-based band “leaked” the first single off of their upcoming third album; a track titled “Nerve.”

Stream the song below.

Fans were a little skeptical when the song was mysteriously posted online and began to wonder about the validity of the song. Shortly after, it was confirmed by the band themselves that it was legitimately their new single from their self-titled album.

Reportedly, the band decided leak their own song in a cool, old-school way; by CD. According to DIY Mag, the band actually handed out burned CDs that had the track on it at a Title Fight show in San Francisco. Instead of letting those know that it was their new song, the band just claimed it was from a new act named The Skateboarders.

The new album announcement should not come as that much of a surprise to fans of the band. Late last year, the band’s record label, Pure Noise Records, announced a big chunk of their artists roster would be releasing new music in the new year. The Story So Far was on the list alongside fellow label mates Senses Fail, Hit the Lights, State Champs, and Four Year Strong.

The Story So Far will be released on May 19.
