As part of the promotion for his show in the area tonight, Kanye West sat down for an interview with Los Angeles radio station Power 106 this morning. He mentioned in the interview that there's a good chance that five previously unreleased tracks from the Yeezus sessions will see the light of day "before the end of the year."
Yeah, it's hard. Touring is hard. That's why we stopped. Pretty much to be able to sustain yourself as a band nowadays, they only way to do it is to tour. I have three kids now. Dustin, our singer, has three kids. It's a different season of life. It was kind of time to stop doing that for a while and focus on different things. But it was hard. It's been really, really, really nice to be home. Even more than that, when I was home for more than a year writing or recording, it was always in the back of your head that you're leaving again....
I'm very proud to announce that I'm the newest addition to the band Legend. I will be lead guitar/principal songwriter and I couldn’t be more excited. I have continued writing material as always, searching for someone with a huge voice to carry my music. Upon brainstorming I almost shit my pants when I imagined Chad Ruhlig’s voice over my riffs! I got in touch with him to sing on some of my songs for fun and he threw the idea out to just be in Legend. Being a fan of The Pale Horse record, I accepted the invitation and here we are today...
I guess Escape the Fate and Falling in Reverse are going on tour together next year or something. I think it should be called the "break the fuck up" tour. If you feel like wasting money, the dates are in the replies.

Foxing are set to release The Albatross in just a few weeks on November 12 on Count Your Lucky Stars, continuing a streak of quality releases for the label. I'm excited to bring you the first taste of that record, the plaintive math-y indie tune "The Medic." The band has upped the ante for bands slapped with the loose application of "emo" these days, incorporating the noodly guitar tone into a larger atmosphere, instead of allowing it to dominate the conversation with the song. It's a tantalizing tease from a promising debut LP, and you can check it out in the replies.
