Gerard Way recently sat down with NME to talk about his first live shows as a solo artist, what to expect, playing My Chemical Romancesongs as part of his solo project and how he looks forward to Reading and Leeds. Check out the video in the replies.
"There was a moment when I was weighing up the options and it just didn't feel like the right time yet to play any My Chemical Romance songs. I didn't feel this strong urge to do it, you know? I also wouldn't want to false advertise, I don't think it's the kind of thing I'm going to be doing a lot, so I wouldn't want to come out for the first show and play any because then I think it would be kind of expected."
It’s that time of year again, the prestigious Reading and Leeds festivals are happening this weekend in England and sporting an even more packed and eclectic line up than ever before. We all know the big bands and headliners; Blink 182, Paramore, Queens of The Stone Age, Arctic Monkeys…so today we are focusing on some of the acts across the other stages away from the Main Stage. Head to the replies to see a selection of artists you should mark down and check out this weekend.
"We're going to play some songs off our last EP, songs that we haven't played in Europe," he says. "That came out at the end of 2012, so we'll do that, and then we'll play a lot of the classics, but we'll have something special that we haven't played for a long, long time that we've brought back and people are going to love that."
However, fans expecting new material will have to wait, he adds: "We don't play stuff that's not released. We'd rather a nice version of the song be the first that's out, a good-sounding version. And we...
The rapper and the former Beatle have quietly been collaborating on a number of tracks that could develop into an album, we’re told. One song, tentatively titled “Piss on My Grave,” is sparking some chatter.
Hear a new Capsize song called "This Song Made Me Think Of You" in the replies via Brooklyn Vegan. The Angst In My Veins releases September 30th via Equal Vision Records and was recorded with producer Jay Maas. The band will be touring soon as well -- dates are below.
The NFL has reportedly narrowed down a shortlist of Super Bowl halftime performers: Rihanna, Katy Perry, and Coldplay. More importantly though, the Wall Street Journal reports that the league has inquired about a "pay to play" type of deal.
While notifying the artists' camps of their candidacy, league representatives also asked at least some of the acts if they would be willing to contribute a portion of their post-Super Bowl tour income to the league, or if they would make some other type of financial contribution, in exchange for the halftime gig.
We'd like to thank Walmart's Soundcheck platform for sponsoring this week's newsfeed by calling extra attention to The Gaslight Anthem's recent performance and interview over at their website. The Gaslight Anthem released Get Hurt last week and this performance is one of the first studio sessions of new songs from the album. It also includes fan favorite "The '59 Sound" as well as an interview with the band. Personally, I think the sound quality is excellent and if you haven’t checked it out yet -- I would highly recommend it. It also goes without saying that the band's new album is absolutely worth picking up.
You know, you go through phases- maybe there’s two or three years where Converge is your favorite band, then this band is your favorite band, then this band is. There’s always these bands that you go back to, and for some people maybe it is Converge. But for me, I always went back to thinking, “Why do I still love Nine Inch Nails? Why do I still love Alice in Chains? Why do I still love Nirvana, Deftones, Foo Fighters, ummm, Radiohead, Coldplay, Led Zeppelin, The Beatles, The Doors?” stuff that stuck with me literally my entire life. You...
