We recently interviewed Hozier about his No. 2 selling debut album and Saturday Night Live performance. Check it out here.
I was trying to look at the more natural parts of being a person. How sad that can sometimes be, how limited you are and how lost you can be, but also how there is a joy and a wonder in that, too. Youíre born alone and you die alone, but youíre alone together with other people.
Copperlily (side project of Tim Skipper from House of Heroes) has announced their full-length self-titled debut will be released March 2015. Pre-orders are available here, which include an immediate download of a three song EP with two songs from the album and a b-side. The EP is also available now on iTunes.
In the release announcing the AMP, Pandora says the platform will offer data about each song (including the total number of plays and the number of thumbs up), as well as the number of fans who have created a station for each artist, plus geographic and demographic breakdowns of their listeners.
La Bella Charade spent the summer recording their second EP of the year called Born To Crawl, which releases on October 31st. We are streaming the whole thing a week early. Check it out in the replies if you're a fan of pop-punk.
Kent, England based duo Slaves (no, not the Jonny Craig lot) performed their new single "HEY" last night on Later Live...with Jools Holland. The episode featured a line up consisting of Interpol, U2, Zola Jesus, Sam Smith and more but the newest band on the bill absolutely tore it up. Head to the replies to watch the performance. They are also about to head out on tour with Jamie T across the UK.
It is with heavy hearts that today we announce the departure of Ryland & Alex from Cobra Starship. Below you will find a letter from them explaining their reasons. Although we were bummed when they first told us, Nate, Victoria and I love Cobras too much to not move forward. Not only because of what this band means to us, but also because of what Cobras stands for: To never give up, to never say die. And though Alex & Ryland will no longer be a part of the band, they will always be a part of the crew and will always be like family to us, and hopefully to you.

In fact, we have to talk about how itís gonna look. In 2014, how you release music is extremely different than ten years ago and almost a year ago. These days, a lot of people just put it on Youtube [laughs], thatís all they have to do. If thereís any musicians out there, speaking of that, retaining the masters is a really good thing, you know? There was a time when you didnít feel like you were legitimate unless you were on a record label, but these days, itís very easy to get your music out there and you own the rights to it. Thatís a really good thing for a musician when musicians have been shit upon for the last decade and a half...
How much do you hate yourself? Attila's new song "Proving Grounds" is in the replies and it's been submitted by a bunch of people ... I'm assuming as a joke, because there's nothing funnier than this band.
