|Mission of Burma @ MHOW, 1/19/2012|
Hoooooly crap a LOT of great things happened today. Let's get to it.
- FN heroes Mission of Burma will continue rocking our faces off with their new LP Unsound, which will drop on July 9 via their new label Fire Records. Check out leadoff track "Dust Devil" below. Do it. We'll wait. Why are you still reading this (Pitchfork)
- In what is probably the biggest tease ever for me and every other Amurrican New Order fan, frontman Bernard Sumner has confirmed in a post-Ultra Festival interview that the legendary band will be back in the US for more shows once they've fulfilled other dates worldwide. I'll just stand here with my credit card out, Bernard (Slicing Up Eyeballs)
- NEW SIGUR ROS ALBUM (VALTARI) ON MAY 9! STREAM TITLE TRACK BELOW! IT'S COOL IF YOU TEAR UP A LITTLE (Consequence of Sound)
- New Liars album on June 5! (Mute)
- Tenacious D. 2012 Tour. Hammerstein Ballroom on June 28. Tickets on sale this Friday at 10am ET. Really no need for me to tell you how excited to get here. (BrooklynVegan)
- Stream M. Ward's new album A Wastland Companion! There's a LOT less Zooey Deschanel on this, so that's already a reason to like it (NPR)
- New(ish) Japandroids single? Yes! 2012 Tour bringing them to Bowery Ballroom on June 26 for a sweaty awesome rock show? Yes Squared. (Stereogum)
- 22 seconds of the first new Soundgarden song are available now. Juuuuuust enough to blueball SG fans until the release of The Avengers soundtrack (or, knowing the Internet, a couple weeks from now) (Rock It Out)
