So, uh, Beyoncé just dropped her fifth studio album, a self-titled effort, with no fanfare or buzz on iTunes. Not only does Beyoncé contain fourteen new songs but each song has a video accompaniment. Bow down to the Queen.
It is with great pain but quiet respect, that for personal reasons Joey Jordison and Slipknot are parting ways. We all wish Joey the best in whatever his future holds. We understand that many of you will want to know how and why this has come to be, and we will do our best to respond to these questions in the near future. It is our love for all of you, as well as for the music we create, that spurs us to continue on and move forward with our plans for releasing new material in the next year. We hope that all of you will come to understand this, and we appreciate your continued support while we plan the next phase of the future of Slipknot.

+/- will be releasing their new album, Jumping the Tracks, on February 4th, 2014 via Teenbeat Records. The band’s drummer, Chris Deaner, will be publishing multi-track drum recordings for each song from the album to Blend, in Logic Pro and Ableton Live project formats.
"As a band we are big believers in finding new tools and resources to pull from for our music. Hopefully this project with Blend will be a catalyst for songwriters. Or maybe people will just use the samples and beats to create something great. Either way, Im excited to see what happens. On a personal level Blend resonates with my nerdy techy side. Lately I have been increasingly into exploring all the disruptive opportunities that exist in the online music creation space. Im particularly interested in leveraging the power of the browser to replace, remove, and invent music making tools. Blend is a great example of the possibilities here.
But really I love how strange this idea is! I love the surprise! aspect of this project. I am excited to hear what people come up with for these beats, written to a song they cannot hear. Hopefully when the album is released and the melodies, chords, builds, pauses, etc are presented to them, their heads explode.”
Katy B will release her new album, Little Red, on February 3rd. Head to the replies for the artwork.

Weve just spoken to Pyotr Verzilov, husband of imprisoned member Nadezhda Tolokonnikova, who is confirming the rumors about both members, Nadya and Maria Alyokhina, being freed under the amnesty bill being submitted by the Kremlin to parliament to mark the Russian constitutions 20th anniversary on Thursday. Nadyas father Andrei has also been able to confirm this from reliable sources.
Its from the Kremlin and official already, they will be freed, Pyotr told us today. Though he added, We do not know yet when this will happen, because it is unclear when the bill will be voted by the Duma and how fast it will be applied to prisons could be from 2 weeks to 2 months until they are freed.

Formed only a year ago, Head For Cover recently released their debut album, Last Year’s Dead Weight. Today, we are streaming the whole thing. Hit the replies to check it out. Fans of the more pop-punk/melodic parts of A Day To Remember or Four Year Strong should enjoy this one. The band has already been on tour with the likes of Hawthorne Heights and Set It Off, but their sound leans more toward the pop-punk side of the spectrum.
Head to the replies to watch Morrissey's three-song performance at the Nobel Peace Prize concert in Oslo last night. He performed “People Are The Same Everywhere”, his new track - Lou Reed's “Satellite Of Love” and “Irish Blood, English Heart”.
According to multiple news submissions, at the Max Bemis show tonight he mentioned a “spoiler” about how Say Anything would be touring for the 10th anniversary of … Is A Real Boy and they’d play that album in full. Sign me up.
It is with heavy hearts that we must let you know that Steve Klein is no longer a part of New Found Glory. Weve had our differences with Steve over the years that have led us to this decision. We love Steve however personal differences have guided this decision and we no longer feel we can work with him. Rest assured that New Found Glory will still go on! After the Parahoy Cruise we are planning to write a new record and start this new chapter for our band. We have not decided on who will fill Steves position however we will let you know our plans as soon as we figure that out. We love you, our fans, so much and appreciate your dedication and loyalty to our band. We hope you stick by us during this difficult time.
Max Bemis' next foray into comics will be Evil Empire, a 16-issue series from Boom! Studios launching on March 5.
The series finds a controversial rapper named Reese rising up to fight a growing menace that threatens to turn a world very much like our own into the type of oppressed society found in numerous sci-fi tales.
Head to the replies to listen to a new acoustic demo from Daly’s Gone Wrong called “Damn it, Jeff! You Couldnt Help Yourself.” The final version of song will appear on the band’s upcoming album, Finding Your Heart Again, which is due out on March 14, 2014.
I mixed it significantly differently than the film [Shut Up and Play the Hits], because the film is mixed for your eye and the record is mixed for your ears. The film is mixed digitally, because you have to watch it in a theater and make little adjustments all through for a four-hour film, whereas the record is just mixed analog to tape, the way I normally do.
Check out a video interview with Manchester Orchestra in the replies. Looks like the new album will be named Cope and will be released most likely on April 1, 2014. Andy also hints at an upcoming tour with Kevin Devine.
