The Pixies decided to stream their entire upcoming album, Indie Cindy, one week before its official release on April 29. Indie Cindy is also the first album to be released by the band in 23 years and you can still pre-ordere it on Amazon. The band also released a secret song, Woman of War as part of this year’s Record Store Day, where they released a limited-edition set.
Listen to Woman of War below!
Talking about the album, the band’s drummer, David Lovering, said that:
We started seriously talking about recording new music about four years ago. New music seemed like something we just had to do, we just couldn’t continue to go out and tour without anything new. So the talk evolved into writing and recording, and we’re all very happy with the way everything worked out.
Last month the band released a video for one of the songs from Indie Cindy. You can check out the video for Greens and Blues, here!
Enjoy the full album below and tell me what do you guys think about it in the comments!
Well it seems that Prince is full of surprises this year. Last month Prince starred as a guest artist in the New Girl TV show, where he actually premiered a new song with the beautiful actress Zooey Deschanel, find more about it here. Another surprise is the fact that Prince actually signed a new deal with Warner Bros, after 17 years apart, which means that he gains the ownership of his back catalogue, even though the albums Dirty Mind, Controversy and 1999 will still be licensed through the label. It seems that Purple Rain will also be remastered and will be released on 30th June this year. According to Warner Bros, the artist will also release a new album and Prince actually confirms in a statement that he’s working on some new material:
A brand-new studio album is on the way and both Warner Bros. Records and Eye (sic) are quite pleased with the results of the negotiations and look forward to a fruitful working relationship.
Enjoy this lovely song below!
Machine Head decided to stream a demo from their upcoming album, Killers & Kings. As they promised earlier this year, the band also released a new 10-inch vinyl single that not only that contains this demo song but also includes a cover song, Our Darkest Days Bleeding, from Ignite.
Speaking about the new band’s material, in an interview for Metal Hammer, the band’s frontman, Robb Flynn said that:
It sounds like Machine Head! It’s definitely moving forward, which I feel like we’re probably always gonna do.
We’re not a band that ever looks back. We do our thing and try to take the life experiences that we have and the musicianship that we’ve evolved and try to use it. Obviously, we have our sound and we have the Machine Head patented harmonics, the downtuned riffs and I sing the way I sing.
We still don’t know much about the upcoming album, not even the release date, but we know that it will contain some of these tracks: Killers & Kings, Beneath The Silt, Eyes Of The Dead , Sail Into The Black, How We Die and Night Of The Long Knives.
Until the album will be released, which we hope it’s going to be this year, enjoy this new song below!
Also recently the band announced some new and fresh tour dates for their Killers and Kings 2014 Tour. The band’s frontman also says that:
Because this will be the first time that we’ve ever played a lot of these cities, we’re not even sure if we HAVE fans there, but we believe we can break even!!
