UK based math rock band You Slut! have decided it is time to call it quits after ten years. The band thanks everyone who has supported them over the years.
From the band's Facebook:
This year marks the 10 year anniversary of the birth of You Slut! and in that time we have achieved far more than we could've imagined - though we did only ever imagine playing a one-off gig in Derby.
Highlights have included: Two great European tours, several excellent UK tours, a Radio One and Kerrang! session, playing to some crazy crowds (we are looking at you Portrush), supporting and being supported by some amazing bands, meeting and making some great friends and luckily just a smattering of arseholes, that frankly amazing video of covers from the cool Japanese band, Gav's infamous pizza and Sam's drunken Hells Angels/Cherry Picker/Stay Puft T-shirt story - both of which occurred in Bristol. And the whole experience w ...more
Arizona-based deathcore turned death metal act Job For a Cowboy have released details and a new song from
their upcoming 4th studio album.
The album, titled Sun Eater will be released through Metal Blade Records on November 11th.
Lead guitarist Tony Sannicandro says this about Sun Eater:
“This album came together very smoothly. We had the concept beforehand and I took it upon myself to try and
portray that concept through the music. I took a much more melodic approach than Demonocracy: focusing
on the structuring and the layering that would complement the story to my ears.”
Sun Eater will be the first studio production by Job For A Cowboy to feature new drummer Danny Walker.

British stoner doom legends Electric Wizard are streaming their new album, Time to Die, on NPR's First Listen. The album, their eighth full-length, is due out September 30 on Spinefarm Records.
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.
After the buzz generated by backing vocalist Durga McBroom and Gilmour's wife Polly Samson in July, Pink Floyd have confirmed details of their first
album in 20 years, The Endless River. The "swansong" for Richard Wright, based on music known as "The Big Spliff" recorded in the Division Bell
sessions as well as new music by Gilmour and Mason, will be released on the 10th of November, with pre-orders available through the official Pink
Floyd website. The official website for the Endless River, http://www.pinkfloyd.com/theendlessriver/, contains pre-order options for
standard, deluxe and vinyl editions of the album, the official album art, a tracklisting, and a brief audio preview of the album.

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.

Hardcore band Stick To Your Guns have announced that their fifth record Disobedient will be released on February 10, 2015 through Sumerian Records. The band worked with producer John Feldmann (The Used, Story Of The Year) during the recording process in the first half of 2014.
'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.
