STONE share raucous party anthem ‘I Let Go’

“The song is about how out of control you can become when going out, and even though you know getting drunk and partying isn’t good for you, it’s so fun in the moment,” they added.

Check out the track below:

STONE released their debut EP last November after signing with Polydor Records and featuring in the NME 100.

In a four-star review, NME wrote: “Though ‘Punkadonk’ is just five tracks long, it never stays in one place long enough for the listener to get a complete handle on it. Rather than follow safely in the footsteps of the northern stars they’ve been on the road with, STONE have used their first EP as an opportunity to build upon their own punchy identity.”

Speaking to NME back in 2021, STONE’s frontman Finlay Power said “I just need to get in front of those crowds – it’s all about the live performance for us. Put me in a room with anyone and I will convert them all to fall in love with the band.”

I don’t think that’s the essence of punk. And I feel strongly that without young women, people of colour and also the queer community, I just think we would still be where we were [in the past],” she said.

Maisie Peters shares ‘Body Better’, the first single from her upcoming second album

 “I wrote it after a breakup and it deals with the ugly things you think to yourself in the aftermath, when you’re painstakingly going through everything small thing you did and were and wondering what you could have changed. It’s a song about insecurity and vulnerability, about giving a lot of yourself away to someone who decides they don’t want it anymore and knowing where to go from there.”

Check out ‘Body Better’ below:

Sharing the track on Twitter, Peters said: “This is truly only the beginning and I can’t wait to exist in this era with you all.” 

During a fan Q+A, Peters revealed ‘Body Better’ is one of three songs on the new album that she’s nicknamed “The Trauma Trio”.

“It’s definitely a good taster” of what’s to come with this new era, said Peters. “But the album is so much more sonically varied than anything I’ve done before.”

Elton John gig in Auckland cancelled just minutes before stage time after huge floods

A fan in attendance told Sky News: “I’m furious. It was raining heavily on the way to the stadium and I kept checking for announcements but nothing came, despite puddles being up to my ankles.

“After the gig was called off, hundreds of people queued in the downpours for the shuttle buses and I saw some people chant for Elton in the hope he’d come on – but it was like a literal river there.”

No plans for a rescheduled gig have yet been shared.

Auckland, due to unsafe weather conditions, tonight's @eltonofficial concert for Friday 27 January will not be proceeding. The team is assessing things and will keep everyone across with further updates here. Thank you for your understanding.

— Frontier Touring (@frontiertouring) January 27, 2023

It seems Elton John and New Zealand just weren't meant to be, with a third concert being canned in three years. Heavy rain forced the concert to be called off, just as the Rocketman was set to to take the stage.

Belle & Sebastian cancel North American tour due to Stuart Murdoch’s health

The statement read: “Hi folks. It’s Stuart from Belle and Sebastian here. We are sorry to have to announce the cancellation of our North American tour for 2023.

“As you might be aware my health took a dive around November 2022. While I am hoping that I will improve over the coming months, we felt it would be a safer route to cancel this tour and leave a clear path to recovery, rather than take a risk and have to cancel at the last minute.

“We had a great plan in place, to release our second LP in six months and hit America up again! While the record made it out, we’re going to have to wait a bit longer until we can tour it. We apologise again for the inconvenience we have caused you. Sincerely yours, Stuart.”

Thanks to everyone who bought tickets for the shows and for those of you who've reached out with love and support recently. We hope to be playing to you all soon. pic.twitter.com/Sjw7WL43S2

Earlier this month, Belle & Sebastian announced details of a surprise new album, ‘Late Developers’ and shared the single ‘I Don’t Know What You See In Me’.

It’s the Scottish indie veterans’ 12th studio album and was released on January 13.

Arriving just eight months after their last record ‘A Bit Of Previous’, Murdoch recently told NME that ‘Late Developers’ was born of the same sessions in the band’s native Glasgow in 2021. After plans for to record in Los Angeles were abandoned due to the coronavirus pandemic, the group converted their rehearsal space into a COVID-safe makeshift studio. Murdoch explained how after the downtime of lockdown, he entered sessions for ‘A Bit of Previous’ “with about 30 songs”.

“I just said to the band, ‘Come on, let’s make it two LPs!” he said. “Let’s give the record company what they want first, and then keep the second one back as a secret.’”

Murdoch told NME how the two albums were distinct from one another, with ‘Late Developers’ exhibiting a more playful side. “The first one was the one where the record company were saying, ‘We’re going to do this and that,’ and we were thinking, ‘We’d better take it seriously and give them value for money!’,” he recalled. “But then after that we could be more relaxed.”

He continued: “The second LP is the fun LP. Even if some of the songs have serious subject matter, it was fun to put together. It’s my job to sequence the records, and putting two LPs together from 30 songs gives you a lot of options for having a nice flow.

“With the first record you’re trying to shape something that’s a little bit more cultured, maybe with the voices sitting at the same level and a constant narrative, whereas the second record is more all over the place, you’ve got more voices coming in.”

Belle & Sebastian are still set to embark on a UK tour this summer. Visit here for tickets and more information.

Charlie Cunningham processes grief on “hopeful” new single ‘Bird’s Eye View’

He continued: “She had a strong connection to her faith and as a child, through our close relationship, so did I. However, for me, that faith has waned and changed shape over the years.

“This manifestation of faith – whatever it is – lives on in me through my connection to her memory, distilled as a fragment of my personality. I’m grateful it’s there. Her loss sparked a reconnection to that childhood relationship I had with it, albeit momentarily. It was comforting.”

Having previously drawn comparisons from the likes of Neil Young, Cunningham’s next record is described in a statement as “lush, delicate pop songs brimming with references to art rock, golden era jazz, and neo-classical composition”.

‘Frame’ will be released on March 31 and can be pre-ordered here.

Cunningham will also be heading out on tour to play headline shows in the US, UK and Europe in the coming months. See full dates below and visit here for tickets and more information.

Speaking about the new single and collaboration, Lingo said: “Creating and passing the torch is so important to the life of an artist and their legacy.

Taylor isn’t the only famous face Lingo has rubbed shoulders with – the rapper was filmed in conversation with label boss Idris Elba for NME’s Friends Like These series back in 2020.  You can check out their conversation below.

Listen to We Are Scientists’ funky new single ‘Settled Accounts’

When I was a younger, more brazen guy, I was incredibly steadfast in my beliefs,” he added. “Everything I liked was not just ‘enjoyable,’ but ‘categorically good,’ the people I hung out with were not just ‘fun people,’ but the ‘best gang,’ the ideas I subscribed to were not just ‘interesting,’ but ‘fundamentally correct.’ These days, I’m just way less sure about everything.”

Listen to ‘Settled Accounts’ below.

Discussing the new album in a statement, Murray added: “Lobes is the name of a cereal of black spheres invented by Chris Cain (don’t ask). Obviously, the record has little to do with breakfast, but I loved the associations that the word has with cerebral biology, and the evocation of sci-fi, and a sense of something both fundamentally human and utterly unknowable.

“The word “lobes” makes me think of the body horror films of David Cronenberg, but also of the chatty comedies of manners of Whit Stillman. I really love the reaction it evokes in people: everybody knows the word “lobes,” but for whatever reason, being challenged to define it consistently scares them, or angers them, or makes them laugh, or makes them tell me to “shut up.”  What a great reaction to such a benign word.  It’s also pretty fun to say. Lobes.”

After the album’s release, We Are Scientists will play a host of UK and European gigs including a show at London’s newly refurbished KOKO venue on March 3.

Furthermore, it’s possible that Dylan O’Brien – who starred opposite Sadie Sink in the short film for 2021’s ‘All Too Well (Taylor’s Version) (10 Minute Version)’ – is involved with the choreography for Swift’s backup dancers. A video posted to TikTok by the Knicks City Dancers showed the actor dancing with the troupe, which was accompanied by the caption, “We’ll remember this all too well.”

In the interim, she has released four albums, 2019’s ‘Lover’, 2020’s ‘folklore’ and ‘evermore’ and the aforementioned ‘Midnights’, which dropped in October.

Limp Bizkit’s Fred Durst offers to help Elon Musk save Twitter

However, it later appeared that this wouldn’t be necessary, as Musk has since said that he will step down from his role as CEO of Twitter as soon as he finds “someone foolish enough to take the job”. However, he has said he will continue working for the social media giant, but will instead only head up the software and server teams.

I will resign as CEO as soon as I find someone foolish enough to take the job! After that, I will just run the software & servers teams.

— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) December 21, 2022

Musk’s resignation comes just two months after he took over Twitter back in October.

In other Twitter news, Dionne Warwick has said in an interview with People that she wants to meet Musk to find out his “true intent”. “I have to meet him. I know a lot of people have walked away from Twitter. That’s prior to knowing exactly what he’s going to do. He’s new to the game.

“His attitude is freedom of speech, which is mine as well,” she added. “However, there’s a way to do it.

“That’s one of the conversations I’m going to have with him. What is your true intent? I understand your freedom of speech attitude but how are you going to contain it, so it does not get out of hand?”

Elsewhere, Limp Bizkit will be returning to the UK for a string of live dates next year. They were meant to make their live return in September of this year, but the gigs were cancelled due to Durst’s “personal health concerns”. They will be supported by Wargasm and Blackgold at the following dates, which you can find the remaining tickets for here:

Orbital have also released the second single from ‘Optical Illusion’, ‘Ringa Ringa (The Old Pandemic Folk Song’. The song features The Mediaeval Baebes and offers something of a modern reworking of the nursery rhyme ‘Ring O’ Ring O’Roses’, which is heavily associated with the Black Death.

Listen to the track below:

The song is the second to be taken from ‘Optical Illusion’, following Sleaford Mods collaboration ‘Dirty Rat’. Per a press release, the band’s Paul Hartnoll described the track as “a giant capital letter, like in the Book of Kells, where the very first letter always gets the big treatment from the monk when he’s doing his illustrated borders.”

“It’s got that old school dance music vibe with bits of Cabaret Voltaire in there, even bits of The Shamen. It’s a little bit punk rock, nice and loud,” continued Hartnoll. A really refreshing, ‘wake up’ kind of track. And Jason is just brilliant!”

He added: “I guess it’s about telling people to take responsibility for their own actions,” added Phil Hartnoll. “You know, all these politicians don’t come from out of nowhere. Somebody keeps voting them in. So who might that be…?

“The ongoing culture of non-thought mostly exists because of a lack of education into critical thought,” said Jason Williamson of Sleaford Mods. “How do you mobilise a people firmly imprisoned by a concrete system?”

‘Optical Illusion’ will be released on February 17, 2023.

Reviewing Benefits’ gig in London last month, NME said: “For all the rage, there’s a lot of heart on display too. Towards the end of the set, Kingsley Hall speaks of years of being overwhelmed by “anxiety, stress and fear” and how the only way he can get over it is by admitting it.

““It’s a bit like Alcoholics Anonymous,” he says, but at more eardrum-threatening volumes. It may have been an exorcism for him, but tonight is a wake up call for everyone else. Stand out, stand up, be heard: don’t let the fuckers keep you down.”

Speaking to NME last summer, Hall said that he didn’t want Benefits’ live gigs to seem “half-arsed” but rather “an explosion of power and anger”. He added: “We don’t have anyone editing us or telling us what to do.”

Roger Waters shares new EP ‘The Lockdown Sessions’

“Then… I’m in England doing the Ginger Baker tribute gig one Tuesday night at the Hammersmith Odeon with Eric Clapton and… the following Saturday marching from The Australian Embassy to Parliament Square to make a speech in support of Julian Assange, when bugger me, Covid… Schlummmm! For me it was Friday March 13th 2020. Lockdown! So much for the Encores project. Unless…”

He added: “We’ve tacked ‘C. Numb’ on the end of the collection, as an appropriate exclamation point in closing this circle of love.”

Listen to ‘The Lockdown Sessions’ below.

‘Comfortably Numb 2022’, described as a “darker” version of the 1980 track, was recorded during the recent North American leg of the former Pink Floyd band member’s ‘This Is Not A Drill’ tour.

The reworked song features contributions from Joey Waronker (Atoms For PeaceUltraísta), Nigel Godrich (Radiohead producer-  also in Ultraísta) as well as from touring musicians and artists Jonathan Wilson, Gus Seyffert, Dave Kilminster, Jon Carin, Shanay Johnson and Amanda Belair.

Limp Bizkit announce rescheduled UK and European tour

Now, it’s been confirmed that the group will hit the road next March. Following two concerts in Germany, Limp Bizkit are due to make stop-offs in Vienna, Prague, Frankfurt and Tilburg before visiting Manchester on April 12.

The band are then scheduled to play in Birmingham (April 13) ahead of two gigs at London’s O2 Brixton Academy (16,17).

Wargasm and Blackgold will appear as “special guest” openers at next year’s shows.

Tickets for the original 2022 dates remain valid – you can find any remaining tickets (UK) here.

Limp Bizkit released their sixth and latest studio album, ‘Still Sucks’, in October 2021. In a three-star review of the record, NME wrote: “As much as ‘Still Sucks’ is Limp Bizkit getting back to frat-boy business, there are a couple of surprises to be found.

“‘Barnacle’ is a moody moment of grunge that showcases their versatility, while ‘Pill Popper’ might be one of the most direct critiques of the American healthcare system this side of the millennium, as spoken word intro warns: ‘The pharmaceutical industry does not create cures. They create customers’.”

The Strokes, Pavement and Yeah Yeah Yeahs to headline Kilby Block Party 2023

It will be the fourth edition of the festival, which was set up in 2019 as a way to celebrate Salt Lake City’s longest-running all-ages music venue Kilby Court. Last year’s festival was headlined by Phoebe Bridgers, Mac DeMarco and Animal Collective.

A post shared by Kilby Block Party (@kilbyblockparty)

Legendary producer Rick Rubin recently revealed that he is currently working with The Strokes on the band’s seventh studio album in Costa Rica. Although the band themselves have yet to officially comment, frontman Julian Casablancas address the matter on Instagram, saying, “True, Strokes’ve jammed and started some stuff, but we’re still so extremely v far off from being even close to any kinda remotely-near-doneness.”

“Lotta jumping to conclusions,” he added, “check back in a year or [two] honestly.”

Last week, the band also announced the release of ‘The Singles – Volume 01’, a special vinyl box set that will include a 7 inch of every single from the band’s first three albums, including rare B-sides. The ten-single set will be released on February 24, 2023 and is available to pre-order now.

The group are also set to support Red Hot Chili Peppers at a number of major stadium shows in the US in 2023. The Strokes’ dates on that tour are as follows:

NME recently reviewed Pavement’s show at The Roundhouse in London, rating it five-stars. “The eccentric edge which Pavement weaved into their music in the 1990s marked them out as a unique outfit at the time, and you can still see that oddball individualism on stage tonight,” said the review.

Yeah Yeah Yeahs, who released their fifth studio album ‘Cool It Down‘ earlier this year, are set to perform as the musical guests on Saturday Night Live on December 17.

— Razorlight (@Razorlight) December 6, 2022

Alongside the biggest hits from their career, the band’s new Best Of album will feature two new songs, one of which – ‘You Are Entering The Human Heart’ – is out now.

The band were also the subject of a new documentary called Fall To Pieces. Directed by Ben Lowe, the film tells the “untold story” of the band, who formed in London in 2002. Its title was inspired by the name of Razorlight’s 2006 single ‘Before I Fall To Pieces’.

Speaking about his decision to reconcile after 11 years away in the film’s trailer, Burrows said: “If I don’t do it, I think I’m gonna probably think about it for the rest of time. I don’t know… the last Johnny I knew was Johnny [in] 2009. It strikes me as mighty surreal today – I’ve go no idea what to expect.”

Reviewing Fall To Pieces, NME wrote: “Borrell and Burrows’ love-hate relationship sits at the centre of the film. In many ways it’s not dissimilar from Matt and Luke Goss’ rocky bromance in 2019 Bros documentary After The Screaming Stops and at times it’s almost as cringe-worthy and David Brent-like.

“However, when Borrell and Burrows do eventually reunite after 11 years of not talking, it’s a genuinely touching moment. Each confesses past insecurities and they finally clear the air.”

The 1975: “Depeche Mode have aesthetically influenced us quite a lot”

Healy also went into detail about his habit of writing songs that don’t have a chorus. “It’s not until somebody points it out to me that I think, ‘Oh my God, it doesn’t have a traditional chorus’. It’s the same with [2013 single] ‘Sex’, it doesn’t have a traditional chorus, it just has this kind of resolve at the end.

“I think a lot of my favourite songs are like that – I’ve referenced ‘All My Friends’ by LCD Soundsystem openly throughout my career and there’s kind of like an attention, suspension going on the whole time, and then you get this resolve. Maybe that’s good enough for us, maybe we don’t actually need the chorus. We’ve been taught that the chorus is the Revelation but maybe it’s not.”

Meanwhile, Depeche Mode are set to release their 15th studio album, ‘Memento Mori’, in spring 2023. It is their first record since the death of founding member and keyboardist Andy Fletcher, who passed away in May at the age of 60. They will also be embarking on a world tour, which includes a date at London’s Twickenham Stadium and a headline slot at Primavera Sound.

Speaking in 2013 about the time taken between 2006’s ‘9’ and and its follow-up, Rice said: “Sometimes you have to step away from what you love in order to learn how to love it again.”

Speaking of recording with Rick Rubin in both Los Angeles and Iceland, he added: “I came to Rick mostly based on what I didn’t know about him, rather than what I did.

“For some reason I just had a feeling that I would feel comfortable being open and being me and being vulnerable with Rick.”

JoJo Siwa recalls Elton John calling her after she publicly came out

The Dance Moms alumna said that seeing the way other celebrities had been accepted when they came out as LGBTQ+ themselves gave her the courage to reveal her identity to the world. “To see the way that the world accepted Elton John for who he was, Freddie Mercury for who he was,” she said. “All of those people who came before me in the gay community made me feel like: ‘Oh, it’s going to be OK. Those people are who they are, people know them and people love them.’”

John is currently in the middle of his ‘Farewell Yellow Brick Road’ tour, which he has vowed will be his last ever before he retires. He will be bringing the tour to the UK in spring next year – see the full list of dates below.

Roger Waters shares ‘2022 version’ of Pink Floyd’s ‘Comfortably Numb’

“During Lockdown I made a demo of a new version of ‘Comfortably Numb’ as an opener for our new show This Is Not A Drill,” Waters explained in a statement.

“I pitched it a whole step down, in A Minor, to make it darker and arranged it with no solos, except over the outro chord sequence, where there is a heartrendingly beautiful female vocal solo from Shanay Johnson, one of our new singers.”

The ex-Pink Floyd co-vocalist and bassist will continue his farewell tour next year.

He recently shared European and UK tour dates for 2023. Any remaining tickets for the UK dates are available here.

Meanwhile, Waters has said that he “couldn’t care less about AC/DC or Eddie Van Halen” in an explosive recent interview with the podcaster Joe Rogan.

Waters, who has been criticised recently for comments about Russia’s war on Ukraine among other topics, sat down for a three-hour conversation on The Joe Rogan Experience where he detailed some of his musical hates.

“[I’m] not really interested in loud rock ‘n’ roll — which some people are and they love it, but I couldn’t care less about AC/DC or Eddie Van Halen or any of that stuff,” he said.

Shame announce new album ‘Food For Worms’, share video for single ‘Fingers Of Steel’

Frontman Charlie Steen said of the new video: “Self-obsession, social media flagellation and death can all be seen in this Oscar nominated performance. No one’s ever done a video like this before and when you watch it, you’ll see why. Think Casablanca, but in colour, and better.”

‘Food For Worms’ is described as “a celebration of life” and “an ode to friendship”. Speaking of the new album, Steen called it “the Lamborghini of shame records”.

Last month, Shame concluded a North American tour in support of ‘Drunk Tank Pink’. Earlier this year, they also supported Foals on their UK tour.

In addition to the news of the album, Shame have announced their biggest-ever European headline tour, starting in Dublin on March 1, 2023 and finishing up at London’s Brixton Academy on April 28. See full dates below and find tickets here.

“Oh, man. What do you guys think this is, like a Terror show?” Williams went on, adding: “We’re not a hardcore band, bro. We’re gonna dance tonight and have fun.”

“You got me up here acting like a teacher. Detention for everyone!” the singer added, before demanding that she “better not have to do that again”.

Last year, the rapper revealed in an interview that he relapsed on drugs during the COVID pandemic.

Appearing on the Armchair Expert podcast with Dax Shepard, the ‘Thrift Shop’ rapper explained that he relapsed in 2020 after 12 years of sobriety.

Opening up on the brief blip in his sobriety, Macklemore said that he’d been inspired to speak out after Shepard admitted in a September 2020 episode that he too had relapsed after 16 years.

Taylor Swift fans joke about cancelling their weddings to attend 2023 tour

“I am feeling so sorry for any millennial women out there who just found out their wedding date is one of these,” one user said in a video.

“That’s gotta be happening, right. You’ve been planning this wedding for two years and now she’s coming to your city on your wedding day.”

She added: “Your millennial female friends and your bridesmaids, now torn between which of the events they got to. Maybe even you, yourself.”

Those in the comments section also shared the sentiment, with one writing: “Weddings can be rescheduled. Stadium tours are non negotiable,” with another saying they would “absolutely leave my own wedding early” to go and see Swift live.

One fan whose own wedding actually does fall on the day of Swift’s Seattle show with Haim said: “Taylor Swift is finally going on tour, but I live in Seattle, and that’s my wedding day. Come on. What are the chances of that?”

She added: “Sooo do I cancel my wedding or..??

“The problem is, a ton of my friends are also Swifties so now I’m putting them in the position to also travel for another show. I know I have good friends, they will come to my wedding. But the situation sucks. What are the odds that Taylor’s going to be in my city on my wedding day?”

In other news, Paramore opened their headline set at When We Were Young Festival last weekend by giving ‘All I Wanted’ its live debut.

The emotional track featured on Paramore’s third album, 2009’s ‘Brand New Eyes’, but has never been performed live before.

Elsewhere during Paramore’s closing set they played ‘Here We Go Again’ from their 2005 debut ‘All I Know Is Falling’ and ‘Paramore’ track ‘Last Hope’ – both for the first time in four years.

When We Were Young Festival continues this weekend, with Paramore, My Chemical Romance and more set to return on October 29.

The festival will then return to Las Vegas next October, with its 2023 bill headlined by Blink-182 and Green Day.
