MP3: "Nothing's Changed" -

Tricky is back. Back with a new studio album, False Idols, and his own label (also bearing the False Idols name), but also back in a personal sense. "I was lost for ages," he says. "I was trying to prove something to people, trying to do something to please other people and also myself at the same time, which is never going to work. To be honest with you, I've been floating around since Chris Blackwell and Island. My last two albums, I thought they were good, but I realize now they weren't. This album is about me finding myself again."

Adrian Thaws is, perhaps, being a bit hard on himself. However, there is no doubt that False Idols stands as his most accomplished album since his earliest works. It opens with a cover of a Patti Smith song, "Somebody's Sins," which sees Tricky and vocalist Fran Belmonte whispering "Jesus died for somebody's sins, but not mine" over a sparse groaning bass. The lead single "Parenthesis," which features a vocals from Peter Silberman of The Antlers, has more rhythmic grunt, which gives a different dimension to the dark gothic atmosphere that pervades the record. No-one does this kind of thing better.

The spirit of Tricky's '90s output looms large over False Idols. There are times when his entire career has seemed like a stubborn refusal to be defined by its success or sound. He has finally come to terms with it, even learned to embrace it. The light bulb moment came when he was sending demos to a friend. "All the songs which were easy for me to write, which I wrote in two hours, he sent me a message saying, 'This is why I loved you in the beginning.' The stuff that I'd thought about more, that stuff he was like, 'It's OK, yeah.' So then I knew. It brought me back to my natural instincts."

The resemblance to Maxinquaye is undeniable, though the material on False Idols is gentler; more mature. "Of all my records, the majority of people are into Maxinequaye," says Tricky. "That's because it was a time and a place. Maxinquaye was a part of their life. Some people say it was the soundtrack to their youth. You can't challenge that. But musically this is a better album." He pauses before adding. "Of course I know that people might not agree with that." Let's just say it's a stunning return to form and leave it at that.

Many of the songs on False Idols feature artists signed to Tricky's new label, including 24-year Londoner Francesca Belmonte and Fifi Rong. The album also includes collaborations with Nigeria's new global star Nneka, the aforementioned Peter Silberman. In the months before the album's release, False Idols will also release two EPs showcasing the label's roster on new non-album material produced by Tricky.

Why the name False Idols? "Because there's so much bollocks going on at the moment mate," Tricky fires back. "People follow celebrities and read every little thing they do. It's living vicariously through someone else. Get your own life. All this stuff is false idols. That's what helps keep the status quo." As to the label's mission, Tricky puts it thusly: "I signed to Island because of the artists and some of the stuff they've done-Bob Marley, Tom Waits. Who could I sign to now? Am I going to sign to a label because they've got Lady Gaga? I don't want to be part of that bollocks music industry. I'm trying to bring that Island kind of thing back. Obviously False Idols is never going to be an Island Records, but it's my way of trying to keep that part of the music industry going."

This commitment to the survival of artistry in new music seen Tricky collaborating with young musicians from Creep to Maya Jane Coles, popping up on Zebra Katz underground smash "Ima Read" with Gangster Boo and remixing "Crest" by Antlers.

"This new album I'll stand behind every track," Tricky says. "I don't care whether people like it. I'm doing what I want to do, which is what I did with my first record. That's what made me who I was in the beginning. If people don't like it, it don't matter to me because I'm back where I was."

Mindless Self Indulgence formed in New York City in 1997 and quickly made their mark with an indefinable hybrid sound that portended a lot of rock music to come. MSI has released four studio albums to date, cracked the Top 5 on Billboard’s Dance chart seven times (with four #1’s) performed with the likes of Rammstein, The Dresden Dolls and System of a Down, and maintains a devout global fan base through constant international touring and energetic live performances.

Following the success of 2008’s If which hit #27 on the Billboard Top 200, MSI decided to seize control of their future and go indie. In 2012 they funded the recording of How I Learned… by launching their first Kickstarter campaign, which became the second most successful music campaign in the platform’s history. Fans who helped fund the making of How I Learned… will be rewarded with its first copies in March. The album will then only be available for purchase at shows on their upcoming U.S. tour, after which an official retail date will be determined.

MSI plans to tour the world in support of How I Learned To Stop Giving A Shit And Love Mindless Self Indulgence for the entirety of 2013 and beyond.

Official Video-Zeds Dead "Demons"

There are plenty of ghouls getting down in the new video for Zeds Dead's "Demons". Noisey and Belvedere vodka brought together The Canadian Production/DJ duo and acclaimed

Black Swan choreographer, Benjamin Millepied, for this interesting take on "Thriller".

DAVEY SUICIDE set to Tour North America with ORGY

First Ever Headline Dates Confirmed

As January comes to an end, coupled with the ground swell of 2012 it is now safe to declare 2013 the "The Year of Suicide". In support of his latest EP and forthcoming full length album, DAVEY SUICIDE has confirmed a host of North American tour dates beginning this February. The opening five dates of the run, February 23rd - 26th are the first ever headline shows for SUICIDE.

"The Northwest is a fitting way to kick off this year for us. Some of our craziest shows of 2012 were in Seattle, Portland Idaho Falls and Spokane."

Following the headline dates DAVEY SUICIDE will hit the road in support of death pop rockers Orgy and Vampires Everywhere. The shows span the U.S. beginning on March 1st and are slated to run through April 15th. The first batch of dates have been released with additional dates to be announced in the upcoming days. SUICIDE cannot wait to hit the road with Orgy:

"Growing up, there was Korn, Deftones and Orgy at the forefront of the nu-metal genre. We're excited to reacquaint that world with them and see our Suicide Nation."

Life on the road can be tough and often expensive. To help offset these costs, DAVEY SUICIDE has launched a Kickstarer campaign. Donations to this campaign offer various perks based on the different donation amounts. Some of the one of a kind and amazing perks that are being offered include: custom vests, pants, gloves, hand sewn Cross Your Heart phone cases, memorabilia from video shoots, limited edition signed & numbered posters & prints, phone calls from the band, Skype bass lessons, stage worn shirts, a personal tattoo session with DAVEY, and an exclusive private acoustic performance at your house. Be sure to visit and support the band that puts the art back into the artist.

DAVEY SUICIDE is ready to set the world ablaze. The Los Angeles insurgent injects gutter grit back into rock 'n' roll, where it has been far too long since a rebel raged through town.

As a kid, he always knew the "safe" life wasn't for him. In order to tune out the fights of a broken home and the pressures of church, he'd crank Guns N' Roses, Pantera, and Metallica on his stereo and play guitar as loud as his small Peavey amp would allow.

Music kept him away from drugs and other trouble, and his three patron saints became Axl Rose, Marilyn Manson, and Eminem. Beyond adorning his arm within a tattoo tapestry, he learned one important thing from these icons that eventually inspired him to move from the East Coast to Hollywood.

"It's important to pave your own road," declares Suicide. "I hit a ceiling. I had some opportunities that slipped away, and I woke up one day with the idea of 'DAVEY SUICIDE'. I needed a constant reminder that we're all in the driver's seat. If I give up on myself, shit's not going to go the way I want it to. I'd rather live by my rules than feel like I'm stuck inside a box. It's about believing in yourself. Put your trust in SUICIDE."

COMBICHRIST presents "No Redemption", soundtrack to "DmC Devil May Cry" videogame

“As an avid gamer myself I was honored to be asked to work on this project,” says COMBICHRIST mastermind Andy LaPlegua, regarding his latest project No Redemption, his soundtrack to the Capcom videogame DmC Devil May Cry. “I had a lot of fun digging myself into Dante’s psyche in order to create music to match the battle scenes and am equally as excited to license existing Combichrist music.” Not quite the follow-up to 2010’s Making Monsters nor far removed either, No Redemption is a brutal and unrelenting musical excursion into a nightmarish videogame world. It explores the dynamic and violent realm, seen through the eyes of DmC’s Dante, a young man who has no respect for authority or society in general.

Culled from a collection of 27 new tracks Andy wrote specifically for the game, the 13 tracks that make up No Redemption are an apocalyptic fusion of Industrial, Electro and Metalcore – unyielding yet cinematic and stunning. From the breakneck kickoff of “Age of Mutation” to the moody and atmospheric “Feed the Fire” to the machine gun assault of “How Old Is Your Soul”, No Redemption isn’t for the squeamish. Stereoboard accurately described the album as “a massive sonic onslaught of aggressive, electronic walls of sound, spiced up with hefty Metalcore elements that complements the game’s battle scenes perfectly.”

In addition to the 27 new tracks Andy wrote, Capcom also licensed ten tracks from Combichrist's past including "Sent To Destroy" (from 2009's Today We Are All Demons), "Get Your Body Beat" (from 2007's What The F*ck Is Wrong With You People) and "Throat Full Of Glass" (from 2010's Making Monsters). Out Of Line has released a limited edition 2-CD digipak of No Redemption that is exclusively available in Europe and via that includes the 13 No Redemption tracks and the ten licensed tracks.

Starting off in the dark metal and hardcore soul of Norway, Andy LaPlegua led a few seminal bands in the Norwegian underground (including Fleshfire and Lash Out) before fusing electronics and dance beats and forming Combichrist in 2003 and releasing their incredibly well-respected EBM/Industrial debut The Joy of Gunz. The following four albums witnessed the band's evolution of their self-described "techno body music", which was described as "a journey through hell and high water, through the eyes of a serial killer, sex, violence and plenty of Jack Daniels on ice."

No Redemption will be released in the U.S. on February 5, 2013 by Out Of Line for the world outside of Japan (January 25, 2013 for Europe) and by Columbia/Nippon for Japan (February 20, 2013). The official as-yet-untitled follow-up to 2010’s Making Monsters is scheduled for release later this year.

Johnny Marr Unveils New Music Video For "Upstarts" From Debut Solo Album



The mesmerizing return of Johnny Marr continues, as the new video for his forthcoming single "Upstarts" is unveiled today at The single is the first from Marr's highly-anticipated solo debut The Messenger due out February 26 (Sire/ADA) and available to preorder now via iTunes. Early acclaim comes from The Guardian who states "The Messenger sees him returning to the big tunes and unmistakable, cascading guitar arpeggios that made him the guitarist of his generation." Stereogum agrees, declaring The Messenger "'s an album that - in both sound and style - hearkens back to Marr's early days." Marr will set out on a solo tour of the U.K. in March. Stay tuned for additional dates to be announced in the U.S. and beyond.

Watch the new video for "Upstarts" online:

The release of The Messenger marks a significant milestone in Marr's distinguished career. First known for his work alongside Morrissey as the creative force behind The Smiths, Marr has spent the last two decades collaborating with a diverse array of acclaimed bands, including Talking Heads, Pet Shop Boys, The The, Electronic and more. One of the most celebrated and influential guitarists in the history of contemporary music, Marr was a member of the Modest Mouse line-up for 2007's We Were Dead Before The Ship Even Sank, which debuted at #1 on the Billboard Top 200. Similarly, Marr joined The Cribs when they hit the UK Top 10 with their 2009 release Ignore The Ignorant. Throughout this time, Marr earned recognition as one of the greatest guitar players of all time from such outlets as Rolling Stone and SPIN. With The Messenger, Marr continues to evolve as he steps into the spotlight for the first true solo album of his career.

The 12-song collection captures Marr's musical vision exactly as he imagined, featuring his signature guitar and vocals front-and-center on a sound which mixes elements of angular art rock, indie and rock n' roll. The Messenger was written and produced by Marr himself. Based in Portland, Oregon since 2005, Marr returned to the U.K. in early 2012 to commence work on the album. Recorded in Manchester and Berlin, it was mastered at Abbey Road by Frank Artwright who recently collaborated with Marr on the re-mastering work for The Smiths' box set Complete.

Dan The Automator's Pillowfight shares new song + LP



Stream: "Used To Think" -

Pillowfight is Dan The Automator and vocalist/multi-instrumentalist Emily Wells along with a little help from Kid Koala and Lateef The Truthspeaker. Today, they are proud to share "Used To Think", the second single from their forthcoming self-titled LP. The LP is due digitally and on CD on 1/22/13 and Vinyl is due on 2/26/13 via Bulk Recordings.

Stream: "Get Your Shit Together" -

"Ever had a sure thing that managed to exceed all expectations? Dan The Automator's new passion project Pillowfight surpassed all anticipatory hopes and then some" when they debuted the new project at SXSW, in Austin (

Dan The Automator (Deltron 3030, Handsome Boy Modeling School, Gorillaz), has a new brainchild. He has teamed up with Emily Wells in a new collaborative project called Pillowfight.

The delivery is a deft combo of down tempo sexy cool, brimming with the Automator's pristine multi-layered production. Wells sings with effortless sultry appeal, while the band drops the beat like no one ever started suing over sample use. Amazingly so, the band also includes none other than Kid Koala nimbly shredding on the 1's and 2's (and sometimes 3's), and Lateef the Truthspeaker on backing vocals and some well placed verses that only this particular Bay Area resident could deliver.

Dan The Automator might be best known for his contributions towards the Gorillaz' first album, though he has been consistently putting out fresh music for over 20 years. Emily Wells is a respected solo artist with s a long-standing musical career as a songwriter and violinist, with her own solo recordings. Though all musical contributions came from Dan The Automator and Emily Wells, the group has generated quite a bit of attention due to David Choe's involvement in the project. All artwork and two music videos are contributed by Choe, who is a respected American painter and muralist.

Pillowfight came about after Kid Koala was paired with Emily on an artist workshop at a Canadian music festival. Knowing that Dan was looking for a female vocalist for a new project, Koala was sure that Emily was that vocalist. Wells went to San Francisco to meet up with Dan The Automator in the studio and worked on tracks that were a part of Dan's new "passion project". After Wells wrote and recorded vocals for three days in San Francisco, the two decided to expand the project into a full length album scheduled for release on Bulk Recordings / EMI in January 2013.

"The video illustrates inner conflict in an explicit manner, using abuse of unjust power in different contexts. The lyrical themes of downfall, embracing of decadence and failed attempts to escape are pointed out by the fact that ultimately the bad guys win."
