“Sad I couldn’t be there for my first NME – I know how lit the NME Awards are. You guys are probably drinking and turning up right now but hey, anyway, thank you! Appreciate that.” Watch his full speech below.

The Shins announce ’21st Birthday’ US tour for debut album ‘Oh, Inverted World’

“You release that first record and it’s so well embraced, but you’re always trying to get that magic back, I think,” he added. “We’ve done well, certainly, but the fervour that happened around ‘Oh, Inverted World’ we never quite reached again. It’s a special moment when you’re a new band and you’ve got what was apparently kind of a new sound. This record symbolised a very special moment in my life, a watershed moment for sure.”

The ‘Oh, Inverted World’ anniversary tour will begin in San Francisco in mid-July and run through the whole of August before finishing up in the band’s hometown of Portland on September 16.

Watch Snail Mail perform ‘Valentine’ highlight ‘Glory’ on ‘Fallon’

She opened up about her road to recovery last month, saying she was “silent for the entire month” following the surgery in December, and found the experience to be “really hard”.

Watch the passionate performance of ‘Glory’ on Fallon below.

In a five-star review of ‘Valentine’NME’s El Hunt wrote: “As a songwriter, Jordan continues to cut straight through to the messy, conflicted, hopelessly infatuated guts of life. It’s a rare skill to pull it off so flawlessly in a signature track or two – let alone across the space of two concise records.”

Nearly 30 years into their career, the band remain as ambitious and as fiery as ever with their nightmarish, industrial rock sounding as daring as ever.”

Black Midi share new song ‘Welcome To Hell’ and unveil details of new album

Check out the new video for ‘Welcome To Hell’, which was directed by Gustaf Holtenäs, here:

‘Hellfire’ Tracklist
1. ‘Hellfire’

2. ‘Sugar/Tzu’
3. ‘Eat Men Eat’
4. ‘Welcome To Hell’
5. ‘Still’
6. ‘The Race Is About To Begin’
7. ‘Dangerous Liaisons’ 
8. ‘The Defence’
9. ’27 Questions’

Speaking about the new album, guitarist and vocalist Geordie Greep said: “if ‘Cavalcade’ [their last album] was a drama, ‘Hellfire’ is like an epic action film”.

A statement adds that it “delves into overlapping themes of pain, loss and anguish.”

The stories on the new album are written in the third person and “tell the tales of morally suspect characters.” A statement adds: “There are direct dramatic monologues, flamboyantly appealing to our degraded sense of right and wrong. You’re never quite sure whether to laugh at or be horrified.”

“Almost everyone depicted is a kind of scumbag,” Greep continues. “Almost everything I write is from a true thing, something I experienced and exaggerated and wrote down. I don’t believe in Hell, but all that old world folly is great for songs, I’ve always loved movies and anything else with a depiction of Hell. Dante’s Inferno. When Homer goes to Hell in The Simpsons. There’s a robot Hell in Futurama. Isaac Bashevis Singer, a Jewish writer who portrays a Satan interfering in people’s lives. There’s loads!”

The band’s Cameron Picton said: “There’s a lot of love and things like that on Hellfire. There’s a tender flipside to every song. The dark comes out strongly, there’s Hell and Satan and murder and unsavoury things, but every song has both light and dark.”

The Weeknd opened his set with ‘Sacrifice’ and ‘How Can I Make You Love Me’, joined by Swedish House Mafia at the end of their own full-length set. His set then ended with a performance of their collaborative 2021 track, ‘Moth To A Flame’.

Superorganism share “deliciously obnoxious” new pop single ‘crushed.zip’

Singer Orono Noguchi added: “I was thinking about Kanye [West] and Elliott Smith a lot (which is most of the time). I wanted to do like a really depressing and personal song but with the most deliciously obnoxious pop packaging. Stuart Price’s production really elevated it to the next level.”

The London-based collective will release the follow-up to their 2018 self-titled debut on July 15 via Domino. You can pre-order/pre-save the record from here.

It boasts contributions from Stephen Malkmus, Dylan Cartlidge as well as the Japanese musician and actor Gen Hoshino.

Superorganism will showcase ‘World Wide Pop’ on a UK headline tour this autumn, which concludes with a show at Scala in London on September 21. Gigs will also take place in Europe and North America.

Before that the band will hit the road for a series of UK instore concerts to celebrate the release of their new record, which includes a stop at London’s Rough Trade East on July 15. You can view the full list of dates below and purchase tickets here.

Mick Jagger says Yungblud and Machine Gun Kelly are bringing “life” to modern rock

Elsewhere in the interview, Jagger, 78, shut down the possibility of retiring following the Stones’ UK and European 60th anniversary tour which is due to kick off in June.

“I am not planning it to be the last tour. I love being on tour,” he said. “I don’t think I would do it if I did not enjoy it.”

Jagger went on: “I enjoy going out there on stage and doing my stuff. That is what I do. I want everyone to enjoy themselves and forget the troubles in their lives for a couple of hours and just chill out and have a great afternoon and evening.”

Speaking to NME back in 2019, Yungblud namechecked the legendary Stones singer while talking about his own ambitions for the future.

“I’m not arsed about being about for 10 minutes, have a hit song, get a fucking mansion, do too many drugs and kill myself,” he explained. “I want to be doing this until I look like Mick Jagger. He’s still sexy as fuck!”

Yungblud also told NME at the time that he thought rock ‘n’ roll was “very much alive” and had been “reinvented for a new generation” of fans.

Watch Foals play recent single ‘Looking High’ for the first time

The trio returned to the venue the following night (April 21) where they debuted ‘Looking High’. Tune in here:

‘Looking High’, frontman Yannis Philippakis explained, “is looking back to a more hedonistic time in my life, and a more innocent time in society in general, pre-pandemic and before the existential threat of climate change”.

He continued: “It takes place in an alley in Oxford with two clubs – The Cellar and The Wheatsheaf – that all the city’s nightlife gravitated towards.”

Foals’ current run of UK gigs continues in Birmingham tonight (April 23) ahead of various festival appearances this summer. You can see their upcoming live schedule below and find tickets here.

Speaking to NME about the forthcoming ‘Life Is Yours’ back in February, Philippakis said that “this is our idea of a going out record”. 

“We were thinking about parties, club nights and being drunk on the bus at 2am trying to get home,” he explained.

“All of it: the excitement before you go out, meeting up with your friends, the wild abandon. ‘Who’s got the pingers? Where are we going?’ This is all of that youthful excess of going out.”

Porridge Radio announce new album and share ‘Back To The Radio’

“The song grew out of a feeling of intense loneliness and being unprepared for what everybody was promising me was about to happen – and a strong desire to escape without knowing what I wanted to escape to,” she said in a press release. “To me, there’s a huge feeling of catharsis in this song, of letting go and letting it sweep you away.”

The song comes with a video directed by Margolin’s sister Ella and finds the singer waking up in a room where papier-mâché furniture is slowly being removed one by one. Later, she joins the rest of Porridge Radio in a room decorated with landscape scenery as people dressed all in black move her around the space. Watch it above.

‘Waterslide, Diving Board, Ladder To The Sky’ is released on May 20 via Secretly Canadian.

“With this album, the feelings of joy, fear and endlessness coexist together,” Margolin said of the record as a whole, adding that its title “symbolises the ups and downs of human life, of virtue and transgression”.

On February 8, Sheeran teamed up with the metal group for a reworked version of his 2021 track ‘Bad Habits’ to open the BRIT Awards 2022.

The pair also teased a studio release of the song, after Bring Me The Horizon’s Oli Sykes shared a FaceTime call he had with Sheeran in which the pair discuss their live performance and an upcoming release of the song.

That version arrived earlier today (February 17), with the pair releasing an alternative studio version of ‘Bad Habits’.

Speaking about the new track, Sheeran said: “I really enjoyed the show last week and I think people will really like the new version. Excited to get it out.”

Bring Me The Horizon’s Oli Sykes added: “From receiving the email asking whether we’d like to open the brits with Ed Sheeran to us chatting and bouncing ideas to rehearsing and then performing and now releasing, this has needless to say been pretty mental.

“But we are all about pushing the boundaries of our own and other genres, so this felt like the perfect challenge.”

Released in June 2021, the original version of ‘Bad Habits’ spent 11 consecutive weeks at the top of the UK chart, becoming the longest-running consecutive Number One of last year.

Meanwhile, Gojira have become one of the latest bands to have some fossils named after them.

The band have had a trio of “brittle star fossils” named in their honour by scientists at Luxembourg’s Natur Musee and America’s Florida Museum (via Kerrang!).

The brittle stars, which are a similar shape to starfish, were discovered in France, Luxembourg and Austria on what was once the Jurassic Tethys Ocean bed.

Sofi Tukker announce new album ‘Wet Tennis’, share new self-love single ‘Original Sin’

“‘Wet Tennis’ is an acronym that stands for: ‘when everyone tries to evolve, nothing negative is safe’ and that’s what this song is all about. We live in a troubled world, it’s not our fault if we have trouble sometimes. That’s part of what makes us human. But when we evolve together and celebrate instead of judge each other, we can move through negativity into a more optimistic way of life.”

Sofi Tukker explained that the lush greenery and sunlight featured in their playful ‘Original Sin’ music video was intended to create a “Garden of Eden” for the world they’re creating with their new album.

“It’s a place beaming with sexual freedom and colorful possibilities,” they said. “At first, we see everybody in their traditional roles, wearing all white, clapping politely, acting as one “should” during a tennis match, but as the world unfolds, we see that everyone is a freak. At the end of the video, that freakiness is liberated as we all look up to the ‘Wet Tennis’ statue in the sky.”

Along with their dancefloor-worthy self-love anthem, the band dropped a trailer for ‘Wet Tennis’. Watch it below.

I think in our first conversation we were like: ‘We have to work together!” Hawley-Weld said of the collab. “The energy is so good here, let’s do something!’”

In a three-star review of their 2019 EP ‘Dancing On The People’ NME called the electronic hitmaker’s music, “Sugary-sour electro-gloop, with a bittersweet chase, it’s a glimpse of the feelings that send people running for the dancefloor in the first place.”

One meme on the account suggested support for George Zimmerman over the 2012 killing of Trayvon Martin, while another compared the right to use an AR-15 rifle with Rosa Parks’ right to sit on a bus.

In an emailed statement to Vice about the Pinterest account, Zac wrote: “The leaked Pinterest page provided a distorted view of the issues surrounding race and social justice, which do not reflect my personal beliefs. I apologise for the hurt my actions caused.”

Fontaines D.C. told NME last September that they were readying the release of their third album after they finished recording it in March 2021.

“The third album is really good,” bassist Conor Deegan III said. “We all thought the songs were quite poppy. We thought we’d got this sound that was finally the sound that we wanted to get across the songs, which we thought was quite poppy.

“We showed them to our manager, and he said, ‘Lads, this is the darkest shit you’ve ever written!’ And we were like, ‘What? What are you talking about? This bass melody is catchy, this vocal melody is catchy’. He was just like, ‘No, this is extremely dark’. So there you go!”

Green Day, Fall Out Boy and more to play Rock In Rio 2022

2022 will mark the first time that Rock In Rio will hold its Brazilian and Portuguese festivals in the same year.

Earlier in the year (June 18-19 and 25-26), the previously announced Lisbon-based edition of the festival will take place, featuring Foo FightersThe National and Liam Gallagher (who will all play on June 18) as well as Duran Durana-ha, Xutos & Pontapés, Bush (June 25) and Post Malone (June 26) all confirmed on the bill.

Earlier this year, Rock In Rio’s 2021 Lisbon and Brazil festivals were both cancelled. After the coronavirus pandemic forced the cancellation of both events in 2020, the global health crisis once again prompted Rock In Rio’s organisers to act back in March.

Tickets already purchased for the cancelled 2020 or 2021 editions of Rock in Rio Lisboa and the Brazilian edition will be valid for the 2022 festival. All information regarding tickets and the festival itself can be found here.

Before Rock In Rio, Green Day and Fall Out Boy will head out on the rescheduled UK and European leg of their ‘Hella Mega Tour’ with Weezer.

Primal Scream hit at out at government’s new drug proposals

Police officers will also be handed powers to go through drug dealers’ phones and contact their clients with warnings about drug use in a bid to spook them into changing their behaviour, according to The Guardian.

It comes despite the Sunday Times reporting (via BBC News) that traces of cocaine had been found in several lavatory areas in Parliament, which House of Commons Speaker Sir Lindsay Hoyle said he found “deeply concerning”.

He has promised to raise allegations of drug use in Parliament with the Metropolitan Police this week.

“Kids like me were judged to be stupid because the educational structures designated us as such,” he explained. “We were set up to be labourers, or unemployed, on the scrapheap. I wanted to learn, but I wasn’t given anything to learn, and I didn’t know how to ask.”

JULY 2022
8 – Millennium Square, Leeds

Speaking about the tour in a new interview with NME, frontman Yannis Philippakis said: “Honestly, once this new music comes out, it’s just solid good times – an explosion of energy and emotion. Come with your friends, lose your mind, enjoy the live music and fucking get down. That’s going to be the vibe.”

He also spoke about their recent single, which the band said was inspired by the “antithesis” of the lockdown blues.

“It was quite a long road, with the pandemic winter and all of that in England,” Philippakis said. “It was everywhere, but it felt especially bleak and encroaching in the UK with the weather, no pubs and how bad COVID got. When we were writing [‘Wake Me Up’], it was almost like wishful thinking that we’d ever come out; that there would be a world to return to. At certain points, it felt unremittingly bleak.

“We’re just super-excited that it can come out. We’re just psyched on it.”

After the announcement of the tour, PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) urged the band to only serve vegan food at the shows in order to further drive down the carbon footprint of the tour.

“As you may know, animal agriculture contributes to many of the serious environmental problems the planet is facing,” PETA Director Elisa Allen wrote.

“It’s little wonder, then, that the United Nations states that a transition to vegan eating is urgently needed to prevent the worst effects of the climate crisis. And this can be as simple as swapping beef burgers for bean burgers.”
