Refused Announce World Tour

By Chris DeVille / March 31, 2015
When Refused reunited for a tour in 2012, it seemed to be a one-time thing.

As Brooklyn Vegan points out, the band has revealed some of those plans in the form of a… More »

Actress – “Bird Matrix”

By Caitlin White / March 31, 2015
It seemed unlikely that Actress would release more music after 2014's swan song Ghettoville, but since the producer is helming his own contribution to the DJ-Kicks series, we've gotten a new track from him as well. This will be the 49th !K7 Records DJ-Kicks mix, and along with curation, Actress' original contribution is a… More »


Stream Fort Romeau Insides

By Caitlin White / March 31, 2015
London producer Mike Greene's hazy, atmospheric album Insides as Fort Romeau is out today. We've heard a few of the cuts already: the title track, "Not A Word" featuring Dublin producer New Jackson on vocals, and the pulsing, eight-minute "All I Want."

Cheatahs – “Murasaki”

By Collin Robinson / March 31, 2015
London shoegaze quartet Cheatahs are back like they never left after releasing February's fierce Sunne EP. The band hits us with the title track off their new four-song EP, Murasaki, and if this kickoff is any indication, it will be an unstoppable driving force.

Album Of The Week: Godspeed You! Black Emperor Asunder, Sweet And Other Distress

By Tom Breihan / March 31, 2015

The newly long-haired Justin Bieber's roast aired on Comedy Central last night, which occasioned a USA Today profile that revealed this fascinating tidbit: Bieber is working with Kanye West and Rick Rubin, the braintrust behind Kanye's abrasive, art-damaged freakout Yeezus. "I'm finishing up the album now, working with Kanye and Rick," Bieber said. More »


LA Font – “Whisperer” (Stereogum Premiere)

By James Rettig / March 31, 2015
Over two full-lengths, LA Font have made a name for themselves by twisting muscular rock songs into catchy pop tunes. With a year-and-a-half separating them from their last release, the Los Angeles band is gearing up for something new. A full-length is due out later this year but, in the meantime, the group is putting… More »


Watch Damian Abraham’s Food Network Show Super Snack Bros.

By Tom Breihan / March 31, 2015
Fucked Up singer Damian Abraham used to host The Wedge, Canadian network MuchMusic's alt-rock video show. And now that that show's been canceled, he's moved onto some other, even more unlikely broadcasting opportunities.
