ARCADE FIRE – EVERYTHING...

Formed in 2003 in Montréal, the six-piece indie rock band led by husband-wife duo of Win Butler and Régine Chassagne garnered critical acclaim and global recognition with their debut album: Funeral. Building off that initial success, they quickly became the transcendent indie band of the early 2000’s: winners of 9 JUNO Awards, 2 BRIT Awards, 5 ADISQ awards and the Grammy for Album of the Year. ‘Reflektor’ and ‘The Suburbs’ both debuted at #1 in both in Canada. Further bolstered by incredible live performances, the band has continuously crafted creative and ambitious artistic statements and continue to push the envelope musically and socially, avoiding the easy answers when it comes to their music and artistic vision. ‘Everything Now’ is the 5th studio album from Arcade Fire. The thirteen track album features the lead single ‘Everything Now’ and was produced by Arcade Fire, Thomas Bangalter (Daft Punk) and Steve Mackey (Pulp), with coproduction by Markus Dravs (Coldplay, Björk, Kings of Leon). ‘Everything ...

ALICE COOPER – PARANORMAL

ALICE COOPER –...

“Paranormal” is Alice Coopers 20th studio album, his first album of original material in six years. It’s a weird and wonderful collection of guitar-driven delights and produced by long-time collaborator Bob Ezrin (Pink Floyd, Deep Purple), and featuring guests like ZZ Top guitarist Billy Gibbons, U2 drummer Larry Mullen, Deep Purple bassist Roger Glover, as well as a highly anticipated mini-reunion of the original Alice Cooper band members. “Paranormal” is full of surprises and riveting turns. In keeping with his passion for the unexpected, the singer decided to steer clear of writing another concept album like 2011’s “Welcome 2 My Nightmare,” and focused on creating an explosive collection of unforgettable standalone songs. On “Paranormal”, Alice Cooper and Bob Ezrin go back to their roots and create the raw garage sound that fans loved and still love. With the beloved sound of Coopers early days, fans will feel like they’re taken back straight to the 70s. Perhaps the ...

CAGE THE ELEPHANT –...

Cage the Elephant will release ‘Unpeeled’, their unplugged live album worldwide this summer. The album was recorded at the April “Live & Unpeeled” shows in Los Angeles, Washington DC, Knoxville and Nashville. ‘Unpeeled’ features eighteen curated songs from their past four albums as well as three interpretations of existing songs, performed live and stripped down and in some cases with a string quartet and a choir accompaniment. Brad Shultz explained: “We connected with the songs in a way we hadn’t before. It was really all about the balance of the intimacy and the delicacy of how we approach playing these songs live acoustically and with strings as we hadn’t done before. We were very transparent, and we found the more honest you can be with yourself, the more honest you can be with everyone else.”

VIOLENT FEMMES – 2 MICS

Violent Femmes came together in 1981 and were quickly applauded as one of the most inventive and original bands of the era, constantly pushing forward with their singular blend of folk and punk, sarcasm and spirituality. The Milwaukee-based band fi rst attracted attention while busking in front of their hometown’s Oriental Theatre. The performance caught the ears of that night’s headliners, Pretenders Chrissie Hynde and the late James Honeyman-Scott, who invited the young group to open the sold out concert with a brief acoustic set. From there Violent Femmes released eight studio albums and more than a dozen iconic singles, among them such classics as “American Music,” “Gone Daddy Gone,” “Nightmares, “Add It Up,” and of course, “Blister In The Sun.” Violent Femmes’ remarkable three-decade-plus career has earned them cumulative worldwide sales in excess of 10 million, with 1983’s VIOLENT FEMMES awarded with RIAA platinum certifi cation eight years after its initial release. The turn of the millennium saw Violent Femmes begin a ...
