Alright, I can’t guarantee 100% that this is the album artwork for Puscifer‘s upcoming EP Donkey Punch The Night. Yes, the Pusicfer official Facebook page posted it. However, it’s so…cheap, ugly, amateurish, and terrible that I can’t bring myself to believe that it’s the final artwork. I’m guessing it’s gotta be some kind of joke. It looks like someone put it together in MS Paint (the Windows 95 version). Check it out below if you dare.
The EP will be released Feb. 19th, 2013 and will include a cover of Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody”. The band will be performing Apr. 6th, 2013 at Lollapalooza in Santiago, Chile. READ MORE
Metric have released a video for “Breathing Underwater”, which comes off of their new album Synthetica (iTunes). With this release is also two other versions of the song, including an acoustic version and a Synthetica Reflections version. You can see the video and hear the other versions below.
The band will also be releasing a deluxe edition of Synthetica digitally on Nov. 20th and physically on Dec. 4th. The bonus edition will include five new tracks, including a cover of Tom Waits‘ “Strange Weather”.
Lastly, now through Dec. 7th, all items at the Metric merch store will be 15% off using the code ‘SYNTHETICA’. So, if you’ve got a friend or loved one that’s into this band, now’s your chance to get ‘em some snazzy stuff. READ MORE
Alright music festival fans, the full Lollapalooza 2012 line up has been unveiled! The main headliners of the show will be Red Hot Chili Peppers, The Black Keys, and Black Sabbath. Other notable artists (at least for me) are At The Drive-In, Sigur Ros, Metric, Madeon, and maybe Bloc Party. Oh, and Franz Ferdinand put on one hell of a show.
I do have to say that I’m excited to hear that Black Sabbath will be performing. It’s good to hear that guitarist Tony Iommi is not letting his lymphoma get in the way of the reunion. It’s this kind of perseverance and tenacity that shows his strength and commitment.
