Smashing Pumpkins and Marilyn Manson announce co-headlining tour
Mar 31, 2015 8:25am | Cosequence Of Sound
Following a two-decade long feud, alt-rock torchbearers William Corgan and Marilyn Manson recently made amends and have been spotted performing together on two different occasions, first in London last December, and again in Sydney earlier this month. Now, American audiences will get a chance to see the duo in action as The Smashing Pumpkins and Manson have just announced a co-headlining tour.
Dubbed The End Times tour, the 23-city outing kicks off July 7th in Concord, California and extends through early August. Smashing Pumpkins will be supporting their latest album, Monuments To An Elegy, while Manson will be promoting The Pale Emperor.

Azealia Banks Ice Princess Video
Mar 31, 2015 8:23am | StereoGum
Azealia Banks has shared a video for "Ice Princess," the AraabMusik-produced track from her debut album, Broke With Expensive Taste. There's no interactive element here like there was with her Google-backed "Wallace" video, but it's a slick clip directed by the production team We Were Monkeys. Banks is the titular princess, who owns a pet basilisk that she rides through the air and wears a Medusa-style snake crown. She leads her CGI army into battle with a volcano spitting out little multicolored blobs that eventually end up destroying her. Watch below.
Kendrick Lamar To Headline Hot 97 Summer Jam 2015
Mar 31, 2015 8:14am | StereoGum
With apologies to Atlanta's Birthday Bash, New York radio station Hot 97's annual Summer Jam show is still the gold standard for annual rap spectacles. Once a year, Hot 97 takes over New Jersey's MetLife Stadium, bringing some of rap's biggest stars and piling on the unexpected cameos and collaborations. (It's famously the show where Jay-Z debuted "Takeover" and brought out Michael Jackson on the same day.) Kendrick Lamar's To Pimp A Butterfly may be a dense and sometimes difficult album, but Lamar is still enough of a populist to headline this year's iteration of Summer Jam, which goes down 6/7. Kendrick landed the plum headlining spot at this year's show, which means the rap establishment has a ton of faith in him. This year's bill also features Big Sean, Chris Brown, Trey Songz, Meek Mill, Fabolous, Childish Gambino, Ty Dolla $ign and friends, and Omarion. Before the main show, the outdoor festival stage will feature B.o.B., Joey Bada$$, Dej Loaf, Travi$ Scott, and Teyana Taylor.
Re-imagined Album Stream: The Go! Team Between The Scene Between
Mar 31, 2015 8:11am | Drowned In Sound
DiS premieres Between The Scene Between, which is the reworked version of The Go! Team's new album The Scene Between.
Rather than blather on about it (Jon Falcone did plenty of that chatting to them recently), here's Ian Parton from the band's introduction:
The Scene Between is out now on Memphis Industries. Pick up a copy from thegoteam.co.uk.

Combo Moves: DiS meets The Go! Team
Mar 31, 2015 8:09am | Drowned In Sound
The Go! Team made an impact, a huge impact, when their debut album, Thunder, Lightning, Strike came out 10 years ago. It was a burst of technicolor fun that had an unabashed pop heart and a love of distortion. Considered the indie club DJs nightmare, as the treble had to be taken out of the mix entirely, it was two fingers up to both saccharine dance pop and moping guitar drivel. It was new with a sense of funk that came from the bloc, not the institute.
This has remained the DNA of the bands genesis Ian Parton, but hes slowly and softly branched away from the skip-rope chanting. The bands second album took a far more brazen approach to distortion whilst the third, Rolling Blackouts, injected a plethora of huge vocal hooks into each track. The output was suddenly a chain of choruses threaded together with noise. Its this hunger for hooks that has similarly driven the new album, The Scene Between.
If anything, the desire to push the songs front-and-centre is bigger in The Scene Between and has caused the most dramatic personnel flux yet, as vocalists were sourced to provide particular tones and accents, and this will be reflected in the live band who make their UK debut on June 17th at Londons Village Underground. With the album out, a chat with Parton reveals that, probably, this is the album that most honestly reflects him as an individual in both style and approach.
I think The Scene Between hasnt got the i...

The Rolling Stones announce North American stadium tour
Mar 31, 2015 7:57am | Cosequence Of Sound
This summer, The Rolling Stones will embark on their first full-fledged North American tour in eight years.
The 15-city Zip Code tour kicks off May 24th in San Diego and runs through mid-July. Each performance promises a set of greatest hits and “special gems” from the band’s iconic catalog. Fans can also look forward to a unique stage set-up that extends deep into the audience, as well as massive video screens and special effects.
Coinciding with the tour, the band will release a deluxe reissue of their 1971 album Sticky Fingers. (The tour’s name is actually a play on the album’s Andy Warhol-designed cover.) Due out May 25th, the reissue will feature “a generous selection of previously unreleased Stones audio outtakes,” including an outtake of “Brown Sugar” featuring Eric Clapton, an acoustic rendition of Wild Horses, and five tracks recorded live at London’s Roundhouse in 1971. Pre-orders are now ongoing through iTunes.

Watch Van Halen Make Their First US TV Performance With David Lee Roth On Jimmy Kimmel
Mar 31, 2015 7:54am | StereoGum
David Lee Roth rejoined Van Halen, righting a longstanding historic injustice, in 2007. But somehow, Diamond Dave had not appeared on TV with his old band until last night, when they were guests on Jimmy Kimmel Live. With the band performing on the show, Kimmel shut down Hollywood Boulevard and put a huge stage on it, and they probably needed a stage that size to fit Alex Van Halen's drum kit on there. Judging by the performance they gave, it's entirely possible that Roth has lost his sense of rhythm completely somewhere through the years. But he's still one of the great clownish presences in rock history, and he's so much fun to watch. (He wore a giant nose bandage on the show, which somehow made him look even sketchier. It was great!) On the show, the band trotted out a couple of classics, "Panama" and "Runnin' With The Devil." Watch both below.
Mokonas brilliant Nocturnal Meditations radio shows made available for the first time
Mar 31, 2015 7:50am | Fact Magazine
If you happen to be awake between midnight and 1am on a Monday night (GMT), then you may have stumbled upon Mokona‘s Nocturnal Meditations radio show.
If you’re asleep like you should be at those times, then you won’t have: unlike most of Radar Radio‘s broadcasts the shows aren’t uploaded as podcasts. If you miss them, you miss them, basically.
Some background: Mokona tends to keep himself to himself, but has low-key released some of the coldest tracks of the last few years. ‘Stewardess Rush’, from Templar Sound’s first compilation, was a favourite of Ben UFO’s, while ‘Untitled’, featuring Ruff Sqwad’s Rapid, was a grime anthem for insomniacs (the same people who’re awake for Noctural Meditations, we guess). [disclaimer: Templar Sound is a label operated independently by FACT’s Australian editor Aidan Bennison]
Mokona’s music has always been heavy on atmosphere, and on Nocturnal Meditations, he shows the full breadth of his ambient collection, from new age tomes to video game OSTs. After weeks of FACT (and plenty of others) bugging Mokona to make these radio recordings available to hear again, he relented. Below, stream a playlist of some of his favourite Nocturnal Meditations epsiodes – the first time they’ve been available for playback – and read our Q&A with...
My Morning Jacket Spring (Among The Living)
Mar 31, 2015 7:41am | StereoGum
My Morning Jacket have shared "Spring (Among The Living)," the second single from the band's upcoming seventh studio album. Like lead single "Big Decisions" before it, the track is accompanied by a slow-motion visualizer that shows off some pretty striking images of the eponymous waterfall from the album title. (Which is apparently Yosemite's Vernal Fall, though this looks like some pretty heavily stylized footage of it.) This song was also featured in the album trailer that MMJ put out earlier this month. Listen to the new track below.
