So, uh, Beyoncé just dropped her fifth studio album, a self-titled effort, with no fanfare or buzz on iTunes. Not only does Beyoncé contain fourteen new songs but each song has a video accompaniment. Bow down to the Queen.

Slipknot have parted ways with drummer Joey Jordison.
It is with great pain but quiet respect, that for personal reasons Joey Jordison and Slipknot are parting ways. We all wish Joey the best in whatever his future holds. We understand that many of you will want to know how and why this has come to be, and we will do our best to respond to these questions in the near future. It is our love for all of you, as well as for the music we create, that spurs us to continue on and move forward with our plans for releasing new material in the next year. We hope that all of you will come to understand this, and we appreciate your continued support while we plan the next phase of the future...

+/- will be releasing their new album, Jumping the Tracks, on February 4th, 2014 via Teenbeat Records. The band's drummer, Chris Deaner, will be publishing multi-track drum recordings for each song from the album to Blend, in Logic Pro and Ableton Live project formats.
"As a band we are big believers in finding new tools and resources to pull from for our music. Hopefully this project with Blend will be a catalyst for songwriters. Or maybe people will just use the samples and beats to create something great. Either way, I’m excited to see what happens. On a personal level Blend resonates with my nerdy techy side. Lately I have been increasingly into exploring all the disruptive...

Reports are coming in that Pussy Riot may soon be free.
We’ve just spoken to Pyotr Verzilov, husband of imprisoned member Nadezhda Tolokonnikova, who is confirming the rumors about both members, Nadya and Maria Alyokhina, being freed under the amnesty bill being submitted by the Kremlin to parliament to mark the Russian constitution’s 20th anniversary on Thursday. Nadya’s father Andrei has also been able to confirm this from “reliable sources.”

“It’s from the Kremlin and official already, they will be freed,” Pyotr told us today. Though he added, “We do not know yet when this will happen, because it is unclear when the bill will be voted by the Duma and how fast it will be applied to...

Formed only a year ago, Head For Cover recently released their debut album, Last Year's Dead Weight. Today, we are streaming the whole thing. Hit the replies to check it out. Fans of the more pop-punk/melodic parts of A Day To Remember or Four Year Strong should enjoy this one. The band has already been on tour with the likes of Hawthorne Heights and Set It Off, but their sound leans more toward the pop-punk side of the spectrum.

Holy shit. Steven Klein has been kicked out of New Found Glory.
It is with heavy hearts that we must let you know that Steve Klein is no longer a part of New Found Glory. We’ve had our differences with Steve over the years that have led us to this decision. We love Steve however personal differences have guided this decision and we no longer feel we can work with him. Rest assured that New Found Glory will still go on! After the Parahoy Cruise we are planning to write a new record and start this new chapter for our band. We have not decided on who will fill Steve’s position however we will let you know our plans as soon as we figure that out. We love you, our fans, so much and...

James Murphy will be releasing a live album of the final LCD Soundsystem show at Madison Square Garden.
I mixed it significantly differently than the film [Shut Up and Play the Hits], because the film is mixed for your eye and the record is mixed for your ears. The film is mixed digitally, because you have to watch it in a theater and make little adjustments all through for a four-hour film, whereas the record is just mixed analog to tape, the way I normally do.
