Industrial metal band Skrew have returned with their first new album in seventeen years, Universal Immolation. The album was actually released digitally on July 4th, 2014.
Skrew was formed in 1990 in Austin, Texas, by Adam Grossman and Danny Lohner. The band rose from the ashes of crossover thrash band Angkor Wat, of which Grossman and Lohner were members.

Kendrick Lamar has released his first official single since his previous releases from 2012's
Good Kid, Maad City. Lamar, who has been featured on a plethora of tracks since his titular
mainstream debut, has yet to release any new music since the release; until today. The song,
titled "i," appears to be a standalone track and a departure from the narrative style showcased on
his debut. While it has not been confirmed for certain that the track will be featured on his
forthcoming album, it does spark hope that the rumored 2014 release date might still be in check.
Produced by Rahki and sampling "That Lady" by the Isley Brothers, the production features a very
groovy, jazz tempo; possibly a hint that the new album will have much more in common to his
independent LP, Section .80, rather than GKMC.
Swedish vintage hard rockers Spiders have aired a new single at their VEVO YouTube channel.
The song is titled "Shake Electric" and it's taken from the band's upcoming album by the same name, due on November 4 from Crusher Records.

Is there a new Replacements album in the works?
Currently touring America with The Hold Steady for the first time since the early '90s, The Replacements'
frontman Paul Westerberg has indicated in a new interview plans to record a new full-length LP with Tommy
Stinson. Revealing new track names such as "Are You in this for the Money?" and "Dead Guitar Player",
Westerberg also had lots of love for Stinson, stating, "We'll call each other up when things go south, because we
know we can get a laugh out of each other. How many people do you know that you can call up and get a
guaranteed gut-wrenching laugh?".
While The Replacements last album All Shook Down came out in 1990 as a thinly veiled Westerberg solo-
project, Stinson, original drummer Chris Mars and Westerberg convened in 2012 to record material and raise
funds for guitarist Slim Dunlap, who suffered a debilitating str ...more

Thom Yorke has released a photo of a vinyl record, and in typical style for the internet and Radiohead fans, it has
been blown out of proportion to the utmost degree of stupidity.
Signs point to it having artwork similar to Atoms for Peace and Yorke's other solo ventures, however John
Greenwoods' indication earlier last week that the band would be recording soon may hold some substance in the
matter. Additionally, Radiohead have been noted for their fashion of releasing music nonchalantly and without
anticipation, with the trend most present with King of Limbs and In Rainbows.
Whatever it means, you can guarantee everyone and their cats' cousin will be up in arms about the news by the
time you get home this evening.

'Disobedient' is the followup to 2012's 'Diamond'. Vocalist Jesse Barnett had this statement regarding the album:
"Growing up in a world where we are taught to submit, blindly follow and unquestioningly comply, this album is a critique and unlearning of these Stepford mindsets." He concluded with, "Where we should be glorifying doing what is right instead of what we're told, we are only failing each other. Not anymore. Forever Disobedient."
This news was released through Alt Press and includes a short teaser of the album.
