Memphis May Fire's Matty Mullins recently spoke with Alt Press about his solo album.
I’m never going to tell God what he can and can’t do, so I won’t say Memphis aren’t going to be the next Metallica. But I will say there’s a chance that we won’t be. I have the ability, the means and resources to do something like this solo album, so there was absolutely no reason why I shouldn’t have made it. But I want to make it really clear that Memphis are my priority.

Grimes has penned a blog where she states she will not be donating money from the Ice Bucket Challenge to the ALS Association because they test on animals. In a statement to the Daily Banter, an ALSA spokesperson has responded:
Significant advances have been made in ALS and other neurological disorders such as Alzheimer’s Disease and Parkinson’s Disease using model systems such as rodents, flies and worms to better understand disease mechanisms and to develop therapies. With advances in technology made possible through research funding from the ALS Association, different approaches to minimize the use of these model systems are being developed.

Vox have written an article on the downfall of Mark Driscoll, the pastor at Mars Hill. If you're not familiar, this is the church where Dustin Kensrue is currently.
According to Kiley, Driscoll's steady "fall from grace" provides an illustration about how power can corrupt even the best of us. Kiley was loaned a copy of Driscoll's high school yearbook, which was a testament to how charismatic and likable he was: his many accolades included Most Likely to Succeed and Nicest Guy. "He wasn't always this macho, chest-thumping, I'm-gonna-kick-the-shit-out-of-you guy," said Kiley. There was a time, he said, when Driscoll genuinely seemed to want to help people.

An unfinished Drake song has leaked onto the internet with the title "Views From The 6," which is also the name of his reported upcoming album. It features an unknown rapper by the name of E Batt, and while it was speculated that he was the one behind the leak, he has since come out and said it wasn't him. You can hear the track over at Stereogum, though I wouldn't expect it to be up for long.
