On Thursday, grunge icons L7 announced a new album. Scatter the Rats, which will be released via Joan Jett’s Blackhearts Records, will be the band’s first proper album since 1999’s Slap-Happy, so this news comes with a bit of anticipation. It comes four years after the band announced some reunion shows and activity, which ended a prolonged era without much of anything going on in that regard. Further ramping up the excitement, L7 also premiered a new video for a deliciously grunge-y song titled “Burn Baby” as a preview of the record: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bUV9fNLYRZI “When we decided to make a new…

Sitting down with Kat Leon and Nicolas Perez of Holy Wars at an upscale cafe in Los Angeles, it’s quite easy to see how willing they are to open up and discuss the music they create together. The pair has been a creative unit for a few years now, chasing the muse as all artists do … but their latest project takes its inspiration from something very primal and emotional: the loss of Leon’s parents, both of whom passed away in 2015. Intense, all-encompassing grief is something we all must face at one point or another, but that doesn’t mean it’s “easy”…

Frank Zappa was a disrupter throughout his life and career, and even in death the iconic musician/intellectual is still stirring the pot. Earlier in February, plans were officially revealed for an upcoming The Bizarre World of Frank Zappa hologram tour/multimedia experience, featuring a holographic rendering of the late Zappa himself. This was the artwork accompanying the news: That image was apparently flagged by Ticketmaster as “questionable content” according to the ticket giant’s algorithm, and as a result the promotional image has not been shared online. Not content to sit back and let this happen, Zappa himself (OK, the hologram) weighed…

Los Angeles-based band La Bouquet is gearing up to release its anticipated full-length debut.

Years in the making, the album will consist of 11 new songs. One of note is the title track, which has a new music video premiered earlier this week: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iTvP7HkfUOA La Bouquet is the project of Bryan Sammis, who was originally a member of the indie-rock band The Neighbourhood. Sammis left the band after the…

The film focuses on the cases of Wade Robson and James Safechuck, who have claimed that Jackson sexually abused them when they were children at his Neverland Ranch. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R_Ze8LjzV7Q As Buzzfeed summed up: Robson and Safechuck say the alleged abuse with Jackson began when they were age 7 and 10, respectively. Robson first told the Today show that Jackson forced him to perform sexual acts, abuse…

Tuesday afternoon, it was announced that Andy Anderson, onetime drummer for the Cure, had passed away at the age of 68 from terminal cancer. Anderson was the band’s drummer from 1983 to 1984, playing on the album The Top and on live tours before being replaced by Boris Williams. Lol Tolhurst, the Cure’s founding drummer, remembered Anderson in a post on social media: https://twitter.com/LolTolhurst/status/1100538201402310657 Earlier this month, Anderson had posted on his Facebook page about his illness, explaining that he’d fully come to terms with his situation: In addition to his stint with the Cure, Anderson was most known for…

The “grunge” musical movement of the late 1980s and early to mid 1990s lent itself to some incredibly vibrant and eventually iconic imagery, and throughout the month of March the Morrison Hotel Gallery will celebrate that era of rock and roll with a special photo exhibit. The unveiling of Grunge: Rise of a Generation was timed with Kurt Cobain’s 52nd birthday last week, as the late Nirvana front man will obviously be a focal point of many of the photographs on display. But, of course, the exhibit will shine a light on several of the other key musical figures of…

Twenty years is a long time for a band to be together — and Taking Back Sunday will celebrate 20 years in 2019, which will be an exciting year for fans as the band (finally) announced the second leg of its North American Tour on Tuesday. The emo music veterans previously announced the first leg of their anniversary tour late last year, later confirming a second leg — but held off on releasing dates until now. The first leg of the tour starts next month with two shows in Houston, TX, and finishes up in May before the band heads…

On May 3, Bad Religion will release Age of Unreason, a new studio album that serves as a reaction to the “perilous times” we find ourselves in today. Always a band fully focused on a common theme, the iconic punk group isn’t mincing its words this time around: Since the group’s formative years they have steadfastly advocated for humanism, reason, and individualism. Now, as these values are in decline, and nationalism and bigotry are on the rise, Bad Religion’s message has never been more essential. Age Of Unreason delivers a powerful and inspired rejoinder – a political and deeply personal…

Todd Rundgren’s Utopia Live at the Chicago Theatre will be released as a Blu-ray/DVD/2-CD set, creating a memento for Rundgren and Utopia fans that had been waiting more than 32 years to see the group back onstage together.
