Queens of the Stone Age just dropped a few details about their anticipated follow-up to Songs for the Deaf. Due in March via Interscope, Lullabies to Paralyze is still being recorded by the band and features contributions from Dean Ween, Brody Dale (The Distillers) and Shirley Manson (Garbage).
Out Hud have completed their sophomore album, which is due in March via Kranky Records, to be preceded by a three-song 12-inch. It will be the follow-up to 2002’s S.T.R.E.E.T. D.A.D.
Sleater-Kinney parted ways recently with longtime label Kill Rock Stars and have signed with Sub Pop. The band is currently in the studio with producer Dave Fridmann (Flaming Lips, Mercury Rev) working on their seventh full-length with an expected late summer/early spring release date.
What the hell? Moment of the week
Former lead singer of the Police and pretentiously named pop star Sting recently deposited 273,000 pounds in his bank account for performing at a private party thrown by Microsoft dictator Bill Gates. The rain forest lovin’ prima donna performed just eight songs at New York’s Supper Club at a bash in honor of the poorly coiffed billionaire. Imagine if you will, Sting giving Bill Gates tips about tantric sex. Now finish shuddering and go take a very long shower.
