*[theprp.com] Soundgarden‘s new single “Live To Rise” has leaked out online and can be streamed in full via KISW.com [EIS note: as well as an on air interview with Chris Cornell and Matt Cameron]. The track appears on the upcoming soundtrack to “The Avengers“, and will see a release on May 01st.
*[pitchfork.com] Wild Flag are currently on a long tour, during which they've gained a reputation for encoring with a number of awesome covers. On Saturday night in Boston, they snarled through a terrific version of Fugazi's "Margin Walker", from their 1989 EP of the same name. Check it out below, via TwentyFourBit.
It was also recently announced that the band's co-frontwoman Carrie Brownstein is set to publish a memoir. And her appearance on Marc Maron's WTF podcast is well worth hearing.
*[theprp.com] Refused have been announced that they will be the musical guests on the April 23rd episode of “Late Night With Jimmy Fallon“.
*[avclub.com] It’s a little ironic that a band called Marriages is the result of a splintering — not that Red Sparowes, the band that spawned Marriages, has broken up or anything. Three-fifths of Red Sparowes, though (namely singer-guitarist Emma Ruth Rundle, bassist-keyboardist Greg Burns, and drummer Dave Clifford) has morphed into Marriages, whose debut, Kitsune, is being released by Sargent House on May 1. Wait, back up… singer? Yup. Unlike Red Sparowes, Marriages has vocals, and stunning ones, at that. Rundle’s wispy, otherworldly voice threads its way throughout her foglike guitar, while Burns and Clifford install some dreamy yet earthmoving low-end. That said: Loud is debuting Kitsune’s sole instrumental track, “White Shape,” below. Guess you’ll just have to get the whole album to hear some of those vocals.
*[VICE.com] DZ Deathrays are a two-piece band out of Brisbane, Australia and their debut LP, Bloodstreams, is coming out in the US on May 8th. They're gonna be touring soon and we hear that their shows are so loud you may actually shit your panties and not even know that it happened until your friends are like, "dude, you smell like poopy."
HERE is an exclusive stream of their new single, "Dollar Chills." Knock yourself out.
*[theprp.com] Following in the footsteps of their recent “Catch Without Arms” live performance, dredg have booked what appears to be a special June 10th show at The Roxy Theatre in West Hollywood, CA. While the band have yet to spill the beans, frontman/guitarist Gavin Hayes did state: “we’ll be playing something in its entirety.”
*[theprp.com] Om (Sleep, etc.) have released a teaser video for their upcoming release, “Advaitic Songs“. The outing is set for a July 24th release date through Drag City.
