Marina to release ‘LOVE+FEAR’ in the spring, embark on North American tour

A week after sharing her first new song in four years, Marina Diamandis has returned with a slew of good news for her fans. On Thursday (Feb. 14), the Welsh singer —now going by Marina— announced the upcoming release of her fourth studio album.

Dubbed LOVE+FEAR, the forthcoming studio effort is due out April 26 through Atlantic Records. LOVE+FEAR is the follow-up to 2015’s FROOT. Pre-orders for the album are currently available here.

According to a statement on behalf of the musician, LOVE+FEAR is split into two eight-song collections. The LOVE portion of the collection is described as “filled with a longing to enjoy life and a desire to unite and empower” while the FEAR collection “delve[s] into matters of purpose and insecurity, also touching on conversations surrounding gender inequality and more broadly, the abuse of power.”

The impending album found Marina recording the 16 tracks over the course of two years in places such as Sweden, London, and Los Angeles.

In support of LOVE+FEAR, Marina also unveiled a slew of tour dates for 2019. The first tour will find the singer performing across the United Kingdom throughout the months of April and May. After taking some time off, she will make her way across the pond for the North American leg of the LOVE+FEAR tour.

The U.K. leg of the LOVE+FEAR tour begins on April 29 at the O2 Academy in Newcastle and concludes a couple of weeks later on May 10 at the Manchester Apollo in Manchester.

Following a few months off the road, Marina will travel to North America for her United States and Canadian-centric jaunt. That portion of the tour begins on Sept. 10 at Rebel Toronto and concludes a month later on Oct. 9 at the Orpheum Theatre in Vancouver.

5 Seconds of Summer, the Chainsmokers announce ‘World War Joy’ fall tour dates

Fresh off releasing their collaboration, it looks like 5 Seconds of Summer and the Chainsmokers are ready to take the track on the road. On Tuesday (Feb. 12), the Australian band and the New York-founded act announced plan to embark on a massive North American tour during the final months of 2019.

Dubbed the World War Joy tour, the trek will find the band and the DJs performing across the continent throughout the months of September, October, November, and December. The 41-stop jaunt will include shows in major cities such as Boston, Chicago, Detroit, Toronto, Montreal, Pittsburgh, Miami, Brooklyn, Houston, Los Angeles, and more.

The forthcoming outing begins on Sept. 25 at the U.S. Bank Arena in Cincinnati and concludes two and a half months later on Dec. 6 at Pepsi Live at Rogers Arena in Vancouver. Joining 5 Seconds of Summer and the Chainsmokers on the upcoming tour is country act Lennon Stella.

Pre-sales begin this Wednesday, Feb. 13, at 10 a.m. local time. General ticket sales begin this Friday, Feb. 15, at 10 a.m. local time.

Last week, 5 Seconds of Summer and the Chainsmokers unveiled their surprise collaboration, “Who Do You Love.

“Who Do You Love” appears to be a one-off single for the Chainsmokers as the track is not featured on their recently released sophomore effort, Sick Boy. The album consists of ten tracks that were released throughout 2018 prior to the record’s release date.

As for 5 Seconds of Summer, the band recently unveiled the acoustic version of their latest single, “Lie to Me.” The acoustic version of the song came a few weeks after the group unleashed the official music video for the original version of the song. “Lie to Me” is featured on the foursome’s recently released record, Youngblood.

As evident by all the changes the band members have made to their social media pages, it appears that the Youngblood era has officially come to an end, not even a year after the album was released.

The Japanese House share new single ‘We Talk all the Time’

With less than a month left until the release of their much-anticipated debut album, the Japanese House have returned with another new song to hold fans until its early March release. On Monday (Feb. 4), the English band unleashed the fourth single off their forthcoming studio effort; a track titled “We Talk All the Time.”

According to the Japanese House head honcho Amber Bain, the new, upbeat single is “about noticing a relationship dying, or changing, whatever way you want to view it.”

Bain continues: “It was one of those weird, prophetic songs, where I write it down, and then it happens in real life. It’s not because I can tell the future, it’s because I’m creating it, or maybe I can sense it’s going to happen.”

Listen to “We Talk All the Time” above.

“We Talk All the Time” joins previously released singles “Maybe You’re the Reason,” “Follow My Girl,” and “Lilo” as well as a stripped down version of “Saw You in a Dream” on Good at Falling.

Good at Falling is due out March 1 through Dirty Hit / Interscope Records.

In support of the new album, the band has plans to embark on a North American tour during the months of April, May, and June.

Evanescence announce short tour for May

Look out, Evanescence fans because the band is about to hit the road once again this spring. On Monday (Feb. 4), the Arkansas-founded act announced plans to embark on a short tour around their previously scheduled music festival appearances. Set to take place during the month of May, the tour will include stops in Washington D.C, New Orleans, Atlanta, Bethlehem, and more.

Pre-sale tickets for the upcoming tour go on sale on Tuesday, Feb. 5, at 10 a.m. local time. General ticket sales begin this Friday, Feb. 8, at 10 a.m. local time.

Unlike the group’s past tour which found them surrounded by an orchestra and performing different version of their hit songs, it looks like this outing will find the band returning to their rocking roots.

The upcoming tour dates will also include several appearances at spring/summertime music festivals including Welcome to Rockville in Jacksonville, Florida; MMRBQ Festival in Camden, New Jersey; Rock Fest in Cadott, Wisconsin; Epicenter Festival in Concord, North Carolina; and Impact Festival in Bangor, Maine.

For fans of the band, the short tour should not come as much of a surprise as frontwoman Amy Lee had previously said that the band members wanted to get reacquainted with one another before hitting the recording studio.

“I think it’s gonna be cool that instead of getting on a long tour, next year is sort of an open year for getting inspired and being creative and getting together to play a few shows also,” said Lee in an interview with Philadelphia rock station 93.3 WMMR.

“So we have the time to get together and feel each other, be a band, but also there’s room all around us for us to go, ‘Okay. That was fun. I’ve got an idea. How about next week? Is everybody free? Let’s get together.’”
