Bombay Bicycle Club are currently on Reddit partaking in an AMA about their new album and more.
Kyle Huntington on 12/04/13 - 08:24 AM
Hot Water Music's Jason Black (bass), former HWM tour manager Neltie Penman (vocals), Primitive Weapons' Arty Shepherd (guitars), Small Brown Bike's Jeff Gensterblum (drums) and Matt Kane (guitars) have combined to form a new band called UnWed. They will play their first show with Have Mercy and Gates in Brooklyn this weekend, on Dec. 8 at Saint Vitus. At the show, they'll have a super-limited version of their debut two-song 7", which will come out officially early next year via No Idea Records. There is a teaser video in the replies.

Periphery have announced Clear , an experimental recording project due Jan 28. Each member of the band will "control" their own track, coming together in a 30 minute release. Full details below, and a teaser with new music in the replies. You can pre-order here.
Clear is an experiment to explore all of the different writing styles in the band. It's rare when you have a band where every member is capable of writing and producing music. With each member controlling their own track, this recording enabled us to go down any path we chose in terms of style and sound.

“Every track also contains a melodic theme established in Clear's intro track Overture this common thread links all of...

Kevin Geyer (The Story So Far) and Dan Rose (Daybreaker) have officially announced their new project Elder Brother. Their debut record was recorded at The Panda Studios with Sam Pura in August. While the project is officially just Kevin and Dan, Matthew and Charles Vincent of The American Scene lent a hand recording the album on bass and drums respectively. Elder Brother's debut record will be released in early Spring 2014 on Pure Noise Records. The band's first shows will be with Misser in January 2014. Dates are in the replies.

Hit the replies for the track listing and what is probably the album art.

We The Kings have changed the name of their album to Somewhere, Somehow. As in, "somewhere, somehow, someone still cares we are releasing this album."

Virginia singer/songwriter Jim Ivins, after dropping one of my favorite EPs of 2011 (the solo acoustic work of Late Night Drive) and another great collection last year (the full-band effort, Everything We Wanted) is now turning his attention to a new band called Tomorrows. The band's first single, called "Heartbreakers" is straight ahead, riff-heavy rock 'n' roll, and you can hear it right here. The band will release their full-length debut album, called The Code Duello, in 2014.

William Control's new album The Neuromancer has been delayed. The full letter from William explaining why is in the replies.
Part of the problem is I can’t stay in one place long enough to properly listen to the mixes, approve them and have whatever changes made in a timely fashion. It’s quite infuriating and at this rate the record will not come out on time. So I’ve decided to delay the release until I can gather all of the pieces of this little endeavor and get them out at the same time.

Bruce Springsteen just announced a new album called High Hopes for release January 14, 2014 via Columbia Records. Hit the replies to see the artwork and the track listing. This represents his 18th studio album and the follow-up to 2012's No. 1-charting Wrecking Ball. The 12-track album consists of three cover songs as well as two new takes on old songs: Tom Morello (Rage Against the Machine), who plays live semi-regularly with the E Street Band, will duet with The Boss on a new version of "The Ghost of Tom Joad" and we also get a studio version of "American Skin (41 Shots)" from Live in New York City. The rest of the album is composed of new or previously unreleased material.

Bruce Springsteen will release a new single entitled "High Hopes" (a cover previously released on the ultra-rare Blood Brothers EP) on November 25, and there's reason to believe that it's from a new upcoming record, or possibly a sequel to the expansive Tracks collection of Springsteen B-sides and outtakes. Stay tuned.

Maynard James Keenan recently spoke with Rolling Stone about the new Tool album.
Keenan acknowledges the band doesn't necessarily need to release new material to fill an arena – they took their dark, psychedelic show on the road as recently as earlier this year. "But as an artist you don't want to become a greatest hits version of yourself, either," he says. "You want to push the boundaries. You want to figure out how can you challenge yourself to discover something new, discover something different about yourself. What are your limitations? What avenues can you push and expand? That is life. I don't have any interest in coasting yet."

Bob Lefetz's recent article in Variety has claimed that "albums don't work anymore."
If you’ve got a concept album, go ahead and record it. If you’re only interested in selling a little, be my guest. But if you want to penetrate the consciousness of a large group of people and grow the pie, an album isn’t working. Hell, it’s not even working as a revenue model! Labels are no longer in the record business, they’re in the star business. How to maximize the revenue of an individual or band in as many media as possible, in as many ways as possible. Yes, while you were bitching about piracy, your whole business model disappeared.

You put out these albums, and in almost every case, the...
