M.I.A. has finished her last album but doesnt have US visa to promote it or tour
May 2, 2016 10:15pm | Cosequence Of Sound

M.I.A. has been teasing new music periodically over the last few months. She dropped Borders last November, Boom ADD in February, and both MIA OLA and Foreign Friend in March. Last week, she even shared lyrics to a new track via Instagram. Now, she’s tweeted that she’s completed work on a new album, but there’s a hitch: She’s not sure it will ever be released.

The British-Sri Lankan rapper wrote that she’d turned in what she referred to as her “last LP,” presumably the album/film project Matahdatah, to her “American label.” (That label is likely Interscope, through which she released 2014’s Matangi via her own N.E.E.T. Recordings.) However, since she has no US visa to tour behind or otherwise promote the record, it’s apparently up to the label whether or not it ever sees the light of day.

I am handing my last LP in to my American label this week. It'll be up to them if its released.I don't have visa 4 states to promote or spk!

Billy Corgan definitely seems open to a Smashing Pumpkins reunion
May 2, 2016 10:00pm | Cosequence Of Sound

Not so long ago, Billy Corgan wouldn’t have been caught dead uttering the names “James Iha” or “D’Arcy Wretzky”. However, back in January, the Smashing Pumpkins frontman surprised fans when he expressed a desire to find peace with his former bandmates. No less than two months later, Iha joined Corgan on stage in Los Angeles, and then again in Chicago. Inspired by their mini reunion, Wretzky said in a recent interview that she would consider going back” to the band.

Now, in a new posting to Facebook, Corgan has addressed these recent events, and it’s nothing but positive vibes. He wished Wretzky a happy birthday, adding, “I’m encouraged to hear that she is playing music once more, and writing songs. As I’ve often said, no one had better musical discernment in our band than she.”

Corgan then addressed inevitable speculation of a reunion. He didn’t exactly shoot down the idea; in fact, one could argue he’s almost hoping it happens.

“It’s crazy to think that it was nearly 30 years ago that I began this wild and wooly journey, and that meeting James, then D’arcy, then Jimmy would alter all of our lives forever; for the better, I would argue. Which I suppose makes the hardships that came too, bittersweet. And as I feel speculation start to swirl about what happens next for SP, I’d like to say quite simply and directly that what matters most t...

Bone Tomahawk writer and director to reboot Puppet Master series
May 2, 2016 9:12pm | Cosequence Of Sound

One of last year’s most underrated gems was S. Craig Zahlers visceral Western horror, Bone Tomahawk. Starring Kurt Russell, Patrick Wilson, Richard Jenkins, and a handful of other bonafide veterans, the film offered an uncompromising 132 minutes of terror and some of the sickest gore to ever hit the silver screen.

With that in mind, diehard fans of Charles Bands Puppet Master series should be elated to know that Zahler’s latest gig is to reboot the whole damn thing. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the writer and director has signed on to write Puppet Master: The Littlest Reich for Di Bonaventura Pictures and Caliber Media.

The idea is to carve out multiple storylines with the hopes of creating an expanded mythology. Zahler’s facelift will follow a recent divorcee who finds a mint condition Blade doll in his brother’s closet. He tries to sell it at a convention honoring the 30th anniversary of the Toulon Murders … and yeah, things don’t go too well.

Caliber’s Dallas Sonnier and Band, who will serve as executive producer, announced the project together this past Saturday at Fangoria’s Texas Frightmare Weekend, promising the same horror, comedy, and practical effects that made the original films so iconic and haunting. So, that’s reassuring.

Revisit the original 1989 film’s trailer below.

The Edge becomes first rock musician ever to perform inside the Sistine Chapel
May 2, 2016 8:10pm | Cosequence Of Sound

If you cant go where the streets have no name, you might as well go where no other rock star has gone before. On Saturday, that logic apparently led U2 guitarist The Edge to become the first rock musician to ever play the Vatican. And he did it in the grandest, most U2 way possible, performing inside the Sistine Chapel alongside an Irish choir.

Standing in the corner of the Chapel, with Michelangelo’s famed ceiling fresco above him, The Edge performed before roughly 200 members of Cellular Horizons, a conference on regenerative medicine that took place at the Vatican over the weekend. The guitarist took his history-making turn in stride, even throwing in a joke about Bono: When they asked me if I wanted to become the first contemporary artist to play in the Sistene Chapel, I didnt know what to say because usually theres this other guy who sings.

The Edge has long been known as a fan of reverb, so he was probably losing his mind from the moment he strummed the first chord of his all-acoustic set inside the expansive 15th-century chapel. The set included a cover of Leonard Cohens If It Be Your Will as well as U2’s own “Yahweh,” “Ordinary Love,” and “Walk On,” as well as a cover of Leonard Cohen’s “If It Be Your Will.”

Check out some fan videos below, which are probably illegal because as anyone whos ever been hassled by Vatican se...


James Blakes confirms next album title, debuts new artwork on billboard
May 2, 2016 6:35pm | Fact Magazine

The electronic singer/songwriter’s long-awaited new album has a title.

James Blake’s third album will be titled The Colour In Anything. After sharing images of a mural featuring the title last week, a new billboard in Brooklyn places Blake’s name right alongside the phrase and new artwork.

The billboard was spotted in Williamsburg at N 15th and Banker, Pitchfork points out. The design shares a similar colour washed style to the previous mural which featured art by Roald Dahl’s famous illustrator Sir Quentin Blake.

Little information about Blake’s next LP is known, other than it’s finished and one of the songs is 24-minutes long.

Take a look at the new artwork and revisit Blake’s recent single ‘Timeless’ below

Swizz Beatz says new DMX album features Kanye West and Dr. Dre
May 2, 2016 4:17pm | Fact Magazine

Will this be the most exciting collection material from DMX in a decade?

DMX is reportedly working on a comeback album sorts and, according to Swizz Beatz, it will have contributions from Dr. Dre and Kanye West. (And, perhaps, Swizz’s son Egypt?)

X’s last official album was 2012’s underwhelming Undisputed, but it’s been almost ten years since he’s put out anything substantial. (It should be noted that Swizz quibbled over the authenticity of last year’s Redemption of the Beast.)

Aside from these interesting collabs – it’ll be his first time ever working with Dre; X and West haven’t worked together since 2003’s Dogs Out, a truly bizarre confluence of both artists’ styles that still totally works – this is good news for DMX fans. Earlier this year, it was reported that the Yonkers rapper was found not breathing at a Ramada Inn in his hometown after an alleged overdose.

DMX’s classic ‘How’s It Going Down?’ was interpolated on Drake’s brand new album Views. Check out our breakdown of that, X’s ‘What These Bitches Want?’ and the other samples on the album.

I am truly ultra proud of the steps my bro...
