Fans don't have to wait to get a taste of the new album. An 80 second album trailer, as well as a full stream of the album's first single, "Scream (Funk My Life Up)" are available on YouTube!Tegan And Sara To Embark On Prismatic Tour With Katy Perry

Damon Albarn's first solo studio record, titled Everyday Robots, will be released on April 28th, 2014. Recorded last year at Albarn’s West London studio 13, Everyday Robots features guest appearances from Brian Eno and Natasha Khan (Bat For Lashes).
The 12 songs invite the listener into Albarn’s world for a genuine ‘one-to-one’ and are the most soul-searching and autobiographical since his musical journey began: a career that started with Blur and spans Gorillaz, The Good, The Bad & The Queen, Mali Music, Monkey: Journey To The West, Dr Dee and Africa Express.
Title track "Everyday Robots" is accompanied by a video that uses incredible CGI software, actual cranial scans and facial reconstruction techniques to explore the process of building a uniquely personal portrait of an artist and individual.

LA rock band Bad Things, which consists of lead singer Davis LeDuke, bassist Jared Palomar, guitarist Anthony Sanudo, drummer Lena Zawaideh and lead guitarist Shaun White, well known for being an Olympian snowboarder and professional skateboarder, have released their debut, self-titled album. The record dropped right on the heels of the release of their single Anybody, of which Rolling Stone raves, "Anybody is a chugging rock anthem heavy with choirboy backing harmonies.”
Bad Things' electric stage presence has garnered them a dedicated fanbase, even including those who were skeptical of whether White could play music as well as his respective sports. After being named by Dose.ca the #1 Most Surprising Moment of Montreal's Osheaga music festival, they wrote, "Google ‘Bad Things’ and you’ll be inundated with articles that start with the words ‘Shaun White’s band…,’ which is totally misleading, considering how much more there is to these guys...They have great original material and the kind of solid musicianship and stage presence you’d expect from a group that’s been playing together for years."
