*[consequenceofsound.net] As we all know, The Black Keys will return with their new album, El Camino, on December 6th via Nonesuch. Four days earlier, however, we’ll get an early preview of their latest effort when the duo serves as the musical guest on the December 3rd episode of Saturday Night Live. According to Rolling Stone, Dan Auerbach and Patrick Carney will appear alongside host Steve Buscemi, marking the band’s second appearance on the show in 2011. If you recall, the Keys also played SNL last January; relive that performance via the video HERE.
*[punknews.org] Manchester Orchestra confirmed their departure from Columbia Records in a new interview on Property of Zack:
"We are no longer with Columbia. We released our final record through them. [Our next] would just be through Favorite Gentlemen and maybe some other imprint. I don't think it'll be under the name Manchester though. I want to try to do something like Sgt. Peppers. Not musically, but those dudes made those records under the pretense of a different band. They became this other band and it allowed their creative ability to go wherever they wanted because they weren't under the pressure of making another Beatles album. We want to try to create another band within us to release something without any predisposed thoughts of what it's going to be. Manchester is turning into a heavy direction musically, so I don't know what it'll be like."
The band last released Simple Math in 2011.
