*[theprp.com] Hum have a series of reunion shows planned for the tail end of this year, here’s where you can catch them:
09/09 Champaign, IL – Highdive
09/10 Chicago, IL – Onion A.V. Fest
11/04 Kansas City, MO – Record Bar
The band are also expected to appear at a date of the Fun Fun Fun Fest in November as well. Meanwhile, Pop Up Records‘ Hum tribute, “Songs Of Farewell And Departure: A Tribute To Hum” saw a release today, September 06th.
*[theprp.com] Primus have released a new teaser for their upcoming album “Green Naugahyde” below. The album will see a release next Tuesday, September 13th.
*[theprp.com] Mastodon have debuted their new song “Spectrelight” online below. Keeping with tradition, the song features a cameo from Scott Kelly of Neurosis. The track will appear on the bands forthcoming album “The Hunter“, which has been slated for a September 27th release date through Reprise.
*[consequenceofsound.net] Do you want your name in a Flaming Lips song? Don’t worry, they’ve got plenty of room for it – six hours worth in fact. In their ongoing effort to be weird, the Oklahoma psychedelic troupe is now offering its fans a chance to include themselves in what will go down as their longest, most ambitious song yet. For a $100 donation to the Oklahoma Humane Society, Wayne Coyne & Co. will sing your name on the 360-minute track, titled “Found A Star On The Ground”. It won’t necessarily be a collaboration per se – like they’ve done recently with Prefuse 73, Neon Indian, MGMT, Weezer, and Lightning Bolt - but it’ll surely thrill any average Lips fans. So, if you’re willing to impart your namesake to avant-rock legacy, head over to www.flaminglipssixhoursong.com.
There’s no word on when the epic number will surface, but we’ll keep you updated.

*[theprp.com] Crosses (aka †††), Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, A Place To Bury Strangers, and more are among the artists taking part in the upcoming “Batman: Arkham City – The Album” release.

*[theprp.com] Clutch‘s launch of their own brand of beer has now officially been rescheduled to take place at the Red Palace in Washington, DC on September 18th. Members of the band and their label Weathermaker Music will be present at the event, and will probably be drunk. You can find the press release for the event below:
“American Beer masters New Belgium Brewing Company have teamed up with Maryland based veteran songwriters and touring icons CLUTCH to brew, bottle and distribute the brand new CLUTCH beer! The 9% alcohol by volume dark sour ale joins NBB’s Lips of Faith Series, adding to a beer family which already includes the highly popular Fat Tire Ale, which is now sold in over 32 of the 48 continental United States.
The beer is available in 22 oz. bottles which have been selling out everywhere and a limited amount of CLUTCH kegs. New Belgium and CLUTCH (the band) will officially unleash the ale at a very special kickoff event at the Red Palace in Washington DC on Sunday night September 18th, at which members of CLUTCH and their label Weathermaker Music will be present. Admission will be limited.”
