Thirty Seconds to Mars Electrifies the O2 Arena with Unforgettable Performance!

Thirty Seconds to Mars’ performance at the O2 Arena in London was nothing short of spectacular, delivering an unforgettable night of high-energy rock and emotional depth. The band, fronted by the charismatic Jared Leto, captivated the audience from the moment the show had started which had the band make their way through the audience and shaking hands with fans who they met on their walk to the stage.

The evening kicked off with a thunderous performance of “Up in the Air,” instantly igniting the crowd. The band’s impressive light show and immersive stage design complemented the intensity of their music, creating a visual and auditory feast. Leto, with his magnetic stage presence and boundless energy, commanded the audience’s attention, engaging with fans and ensuring everyone felt a part of the experience.

One of the highlights of the night was the performance of “Kings and Queens.” As the anthemic chorus filled the arena, the audience’s unified voices created a powerful, almost transcendent moment. Leto’s vocal performance was impeccable, showcasing his range and emotional delivery. The song’s crescendo, accompanied by a dazzling light display, left the crowd in awe.

The setlist was a well-curated mix of the band’s hits and newer material. Songs like “This Is War” and “The Kill (Bury Me)” were met with roaring approval, each note resonating with long-time fans.

During the acoustic portion of the show, Jared saw a fan’s sign that had asked if he would chose one of the songs from 3 that were listed. Jared proceeds to play all 3 of the options.

Leto’s interactions with the audience were a standout aspect of the show. At one point, he invited a group of fans onto the stage, (including a member of Jedward) creating an intimate and inclusive atmosphere.
His genuine appreciation for the crowd’s support was evident, adding a personal touch to the grand spectacle. Later on he would run in the audience again, singing and shaking hands with more fans.

Shannon Leto’s drumming was another highlight, providing a solid and dynamic backbone to the performance. His precision and power drove the band’s sound, particularly during tracks like “Walk on Water,” where his skills were on full display.

The concert concluded with a rousing rendition of “Closer to the Edge,” with Jared inviting more fans on stage. The collective energy in the arena was palpable, a testament to the band’s ability to connect deeply with their fans.

Kudos to a band that truly shows their appreication to their fans!

[LONDON, U.K. – December 6, 2023] Tonight, Madonna, a cultural icon commuted on the tube to arrive at North Greenwich for London’s The O2 Arena, to wrap the sold-out European leg of her critically praised The Celebration Tour. The continent was brought to a standstill as the tour, spanning eleven countries and twenty-eight shows, delivered an unparalleled experience of powerful presence, infectious energy, and a mesmerizing production.

Launching this past October in London with the first of six sold out shows at The O2, The Celebration Tour, a testament to Madonna’s groundbreaking legacy, spared no detail. The best-selling female artist of all time delivered a non-stop, fearless performance featuring captivating choreography, bold costumes, and her most elaborate stage to date, masterfully designed by Stufish.

Reflecting on her extraordinary career, Madonna took the enraptured audience on an emotional odyssey through her greatest hits, including songs not performed for decades. From her struggling artist days in New York City to meteoric success, personal and professional lows, and spiritual awakening, the show encapsulated Madonna’s past while embracing the future. Directed for the stage by longtime collaborator Jamie King and musically orchestrated by Stuart Price, the setlist featured iconic tracks like “Nothing Really Matters,” “Open Your Heart,” “Like A Prayer,” “Into The Groove,” and “Crazy For You.”

Madonna has also been joined by various special guest judges during “Vogue” including Debi Mazar, Donatella Versace, Jean Paul Gaultier, Diplo and FKA Twigs, to name a few.

The Celebration Tour, spanning four decades of unstoppable hits, featured twenty onstage performers on a colossal 4,400 square ft. stage—the largest in Madonna’s touring history. The stage, inspired by the Manhattan grid, showcased Uptown, Downtown, Midtown, East, and West stages, with a unique three-layered circular stage reminiscent of Madonna’s original VMA performance wedding cake.

Backstage and behind the curtain were three traveling mobile gyms, forty-five wardrobe trunks, three physical therapists, and forty pairs of boxing gloves. The production boasted fourteen spotlights for Madonna, over six-hundred intelligent lights illuminating the stage, 8800 lighting cues, 80 tons of production equipment, and a traveling crew of 200+. Notably, the costume department alone comprised 25 crew members, showcasing the scale of the production.

The 79-date tour, produced by Live Nation, now heads to Madonna’s adopted hometown of New York City in December, commencing the North American leg. The celebration will continue across the U.S. and Canada throughout spring 2024, concluding with four sold-out show and a 5th & final date added due to demand in Mexico City next April.

Aluna today announces the launch of her record label, Noir Fever, in partnership with EMPIRE. The label will celebrate Black dance music, with a focus on Black women and LGBTQ+ artists.

The genesis of Noir Fever began following Aluna’s 2020-penned open letter to the dance music industry, rightfully making waves and headlines all over the world, calling out the lack of Black representation across the industry as a whole. Championing Black and queer voices both behind the scenes and on the stage, her latest album, MYCELiUM, saw her collaborate with a cohort of collaborators and allies from around the world, including KOOLDRINK, Roofeeo, Pabllo Vittar, TSHA, Tchami, Kareen Lomax,MNEK and more. The critically acclaimed album saw Aluna notch her first Billboard No. 1 as a solo artist, with the song “Running Blind” (with Tchami and Kareen Lomax) landing the top spot on Billboard’s Dance/Mixshow Airplay Chart.

The first project signed to Noir Fever is Moonshine, a Montreal based collective made up of like-minded musicians, DJs, dancers, and visual artists. Their first single “Pain & Pleasure,” released today, features the Juno Award-nominated, Somali-Canadian artist, Amaal Nuux alongside Portuguese-Angolese artist Vanyfox, and Aluna herself.

A Night of Nostalgia and Raw Energy: Busted Rocks the O2 Arena

Review by Charlotte Wilce, Rock The View

Busted’s 20th Anniversary UK tour at the O2 Arena in London was nothing short of a whirlwind of nostalgia and electric energy. The arena was packed to the brim with fans, both old and new, ready to relive the magic that Busted has always been known for.
From the moment the lights dimmed and the first chords rang out, the crowd erupted in cheers and excitement. Busted opened the show with a bang, delivering hit after hit from their extensive discography. It was clear from the outset that the band had perfected the art of engaging their audience, effortlessly blending their signature pop-punk sound with an infectious stage presence.

There was undoubtedly the impeccable chemistry between the band members. Matt Willis, James Bourne, and Charlie Simpson demonstrated a remarkable synergy that only comes from years of performing together. Their camaraderie was palpable, and it translated seamlessly into their music. Each member brought their own unique flair to the stage, complementing one another in a way that elevated the entire performance.

The setlist was a carefully curated trip down memory lane, featuring beloved classics like “What I Go to School For”, “Year 3000” and “Air Hostess.” These songs, which defined a generation, were met with a wave of nostalgia that swept over the audience. It was heartwarming to see fans of all ages singing along with the same passion and fervour that they did years ago.

Joining them for 2 of their songs was Hanson with both bands performing Hanson’s 1997 hit MMMBop with an upgraded Busted spin on it. Hanson return the favour performing “Sleeping With The Light On”. If there needs to be a future collaboration, please get Busted and Hanson together!
One of the standout moments of the night was Charlie Simpson announcing to us all, “Is there an Ed here?”. Repeating the question over and over he then announces to the crowd “Please welcome Ed Sheeran!”. Ed joined them for one of Busted’s hits “Who’s David?” much to everyone’s delight. Ed even did a little thank you speech to them at the end of the song about how he was thankful to Busted for his own career and inspiration to pick up a guitar.
In addition to the classics, Busted also showcased tracks from their more recent albums, demonstrating their continued growth as musicians. The newer material seamlessly blended with the old, proving that the band has not lost its touch in evolving with the times.
Busted’s concert at the O2 Arena was a testament to their enduring talent and the indelible mark they have left on the music industry. It was a night filled with infectious energy, sing-along anthems, and a genuine connection between the band and their dedicated fanbase. For anyone looking to relive the glory days of early 2000s pop-punk or discover the timeless appeal of Busted, their concerts are an absolute must-see.

Blackpink Electrifies British Summer Time Festival with Unforgettable Performance

(Photos by Jo Pinner, Rock The View)

BLACKPINK, one of the biggest Korean girl groups in the world, broke records by becoming the first ever Korean band to headline a major UK festival. This time they performed in front of 65,000 people at the British Summer Time Festival in Hyde Park, London!

Jisoo, Jennie, Rosé and Lisa took the stage by storm, leaving the audience in awe with their breathtaking performance. The highly anticipated event, held at London’s Hyde Park, showcased the group’s unmatched talent, charisma, and infectious energy, making it a night to remember for all attendees.

From the moment the lights dimmed and the familiar beats of their hit single “Pink Venom” filled the air, the crowd erupted into a frenzy of excitement. BLACKPINK emerged, each member radiating their unique charm, and immediately captivated the audience with their flawless synchronization and powerful vocals.

The production value of the performance was nothing short of spectacular. The stage was adorned with stunning visuals, incorporating vibrant LED screens, dynamic lighting effects, and mesmerizing pyrotechnics. These visual elements enhanced the overall atmosphere, creating a captivating experience that perfectly complemented BLACKPINK’s high-octane performance.

The girls took the time to interact with their fans, expressing gratitude for their support and showering them with love. Their genuine appreciation and infectious smiles further solidified the bond between BLACKPINK and their dedicated Blinks (as their fans are affectionately called).

The setlist was thoughtfully curated, featuring a mix of their chart-topping hits and fan-favorite tracks. Each song transitioned seamlessly into the next, maintaining an exhilarating momentum throughout the entire performance. The infectious energy radiating from Blackpink was contagious, as the crowd danced, sang along, and waved their light sticks in unison.

During the middle of the show, each girl performed a solo song each. (We don’t think we have ever seen a band do this at a show before) it works though as every member of the group got rewarded with a roar of cheers and applause!

BLACKPINK closed the show with ” Forever Young” bringing the festival to a climactic end. The sheer energy, stage presence, and showmanship displayed during this final performance solidified their status to show the rest of the world what K-pop is all about.

Mötley Crüe Surprise Fans with an Incredible Live Show at The Underworld Camden

(Photographer credit: Shapiro Media)

Mötley Crüe put on a mind-blowing live performance for 450 lucky fans at The Underworld Club in London, an incredible rare secret club show from the global icons.

The streets of Camden came alive Friday night with the buzz that Mötley Crüe might be the band on the flyer listed as DÖGS OF WAR, with lines around the block for the most exclusive gig in town.

In a venue where most bands play their first gig, as part of their set, the band (vocalist Vince Neil, bassist Nikki Sixx, drummer Tommy Lee and guitarist John 5) performed their iconic anthems Shout At The Devil, Dr. Feelgood, Girls Girls Girls and many more including a premiere of their cover of Beastie Boys’ “Fight For Your Right” as fans couldn’t believe their luck seeing the band perform in such a small venue. 

This wasn’t our first time playing a SECRET club show and it will definitely not be the last. We love doing this, especially before larger shows. We love when we can play these intimate shows for our fans.” – Mötley Crüe

The news of the intimate show first came last week to fans via a cryptic flyer across the band’s Twitter, under the name ‘DÖGS OF WAR’. Tonight this show put an end to all speculation, as the band revealed this is the name of one of several brand new songs that they have recently recorded with Bob Rock in the studio.

London’s Mötley fans have never been closer to the band in the UK, in touching distance of Vince on the mic, Nikki as he commanded the bass, Tommy on drums and John 5 on guitar as the clubs amps blasted out hit after hit with raw intensity. Social media immediately became flooded with live clips by excited fans.

Tomorrow (Saturday 1 July) by contrast, Mötley Crüe will perform at Wembley Stadium in front of 50,000 fans as part of their current European leg of The World Tour with Def Leppard, which ends on 6 July in Glasgow before they head back to the U.S. for more stadium shows in August and the tour continues in Japan and Australia this Fall.

Time Festival!

(Photo by Jo Pinner)

P!nk captivated the audience at the British Summer Time Festival in London, from the moment she graced the stage until the final encore, P!nk demonstrated why she is considered one of the greatest performers of our time.

Her energy was infectious from the outset. As she opened with her hit song “Get the Party Started,” suspended high above the stage, the crowd erupted with excitement, instantly transforming the atmosphere into an electric frenzy. Her commanding stage presence and magnetic charisma held everyone’s attention throughout the entire set.

One of the most remarkable aspects of P!nk’s performance was her incredible vocal prowess. Her voice effortlessly soared through Hyde Park, hitting every note with power and precision. Whether she was belting out emotional ballads like “Just Give Me a Reason” or delivering high-octane anthems like “So What,” her vocals were flawless and filled with raw emotion. We were treated to her daughter Willow singing with her mom during “Cover Me in Sunshine”

The production value of the show was nothing short of extraordinary. P!nk is renowned for her acrobatic stunts, and she did not disappoint. From daring aerial displays to gravity-defying choreography, she pushed the boundaries of what is physically possible while maintaining flawless vocal delivery. The stage design and lighting effects perfectly complemented her music, creating a visually stunning spectacle that enhanced the overall experience.

Beyond the jaw-dropping theatrics, P!nk’s genuine connection with her fans was heartwarming. She took moments between songs to share personal stories and messages of empowerment, inspiring the crowd with her authenticity and vulnerability. Her ability to make each audience member feel seen and valued was a testament to her genuine passion for her craft.

The setlist was a well-balanced mix of her greatest hits and newer material, ensuring that both longtime fans and newcomers were thoroughly entertained. The crowd enthusiastically sang along to anthems like “Raise Your Glass” and “Just Like a Pill,” creating an atmosphere of unity and celebration.

The grand finale was nothing short of breathtaking. As P!nk closed her set with “So What” she soared above the crowd, suspended by aerial silks, while landing in front of different areas of the audience.

If there’s a person you need to see perform live, it’s defintely P!nk!

Black Deer Festival: A Weekend Escape into the World of Americana and Country!

From the moment we arrived at Eridge Park  (set amidst the stunning Kent countryside in Tunbridge Wells) we were greeted by a sea of people wearing cowboy hats, all congregating for one purpose for the next 3 days – Americana and country music!

The musical lineup at the Black Deer Festival proved to be an success. Spanning multiple stages, it featured an eclectic mix of established artists and rising talents.  From soul-stirring ballads to foot-stomping hoedowns, the music resonated with the crowd, eliciting an electric energy that flowed through the entire festival site.

We had the opportunity to discover new artists whilst also enjoying unforgettable performances from renowned acts. The Pretenders, Bonnie Raitt, Nathaniel Rateliff & the Night Sweats, The Teskey Brothers & Steve Earle, all leading the way in huge interest and singalongs from the crowds. Damian Lewis released his debut album on Friday and was able to perform it live for all to hear. Far From Saints (Kelly Jones (Stereophonics), Patty Lynn (Austin), Dwight Baker (The Wind and The Wave)) were on top form having released their debut album earlier in the day!

The Songwriting Sessions were worth a break from the main stage, these involved a group of artists, playing some of their songs, complete with stories behind them.

Beyond the music, Black Deer Festival offered a plethora of enriching experiences. The workshops and talks provided insights into various aspects of Americana culture, from songwriting and instrument craftsmanship to whiskey tasting and BBQ cooking. The emphasis on promoting local artisans and vendors added an authentic touch to the festival, with a range of handcrafted goods, delicious food, and refreshing beverages available throughout the site. 

One aspect that deserves special mention is the sense of community that permeated the festival. Black Deer Festival fostered an environment where strangers became friends, and connections were formed through a shared love for music and the outdoors. The friendly and inclusive atmosphere was contagious, with fellow festival-goers readily engaging in conversations inbetween acts. We spoke to one woman who said she didn’t know much about Americana music, but was impressed by how talented all the artists were and how passionately they performed their music. When asked if she would attend next year, “Absolutely without a doubt!” was her response.

THE BETHS share new single ‘Watching The Credits’

The Beths present their new single, ‘Watching The Credits’, and unveil their incredible Tiny Desk Concert, proving once again that they are “one of the greatest indie-rock bands of their time” (Rolling Stone). ‘Watching The Credits’ is a terrific power pop anthem recorded during the sessions of Expert In A Dying Field, the New Zealand quartet’s acclaimed 2022 album. Born out of songwriter Elizabeth Stokes’ habit of learning everything about movies without actually watching them, ‘Watching The Credits’ is Stokes’ imaginary view from the director’s seat. Their accompanying NPR Tiny Desk performance downsizes their beloved live performance while maintaining their signature thrilling energy.

Expert In A Dying Field, the third studio album from The Beths, was released to a wealth of critical praise, and was named one of 2022’s best releases by the likes of Pitchfork, The Ringer, and Stereogum, who praised it as “another collection of tunes that cements their status as one of the great guitar-pop bands of this present moment.” Surrounding its release, The Beths were profiled by Rolling Stone, Document Journal, The Big Takeover and more, and made their US television debut on CBS Saturday Morning. With a full, almost entirely sold out North American tour already under their belt, and supporting slots for The National, Death Cab for Cutie and The Postal Service on the horizon, The Beths are undeniably one of the most exciting indie rock bands to emerge in recent memory.

Taylor Hawkins Tribute, Wembley Stadium, London

We were very lucky to attend the Taylor Hawkins Tribute at Wembley Stadium, London. 6 hours of music from a variety of talented musicians, each of them a major artist in their own right. For the whole 6 hours each band/artist performed three songs, these consisted of songs that were favorites of Taylor or songs that were a tribute to him. For the final hour, Dave Grohl and the Foo Fighters led into what could be described as a mini Foo Fighters gig. It was their first ever time playing without Taylor on drums since he joined the band in 1997. For every 2 songs they played, they invited a guest drummer on to play along to a Foo Fighters track. One of these drummers was Taylor’s son Shane, who performed “My Hero” with the band and made every single one of us 80,000 people there amazed at his incredible drumming ability and knowing this could be the start of seeing Shane Hawkins drumming in the future.
Dave (Grohl) ended the show by saying “I hope that you guys felt all the love from all of us and all of the performers, because we felt it from you for Taylor tonight,” Yes Dave you and the rest of the Foo Fighters defintley did their brother Taylor proud.

IRON MAIDEN will be bringing a new tour to Europe in the Summer of 2023 including arena shows in the UK & Ireland. THE FUTURE PAST TOUR will feature previously unperformed songs from the band’s most recent studio album, Senjutsu along with a focus on 1986’s iconic Somewhere In Time record, plus other classic cuts.
Dates are as below. Tickets go on sale from Friday 14th October at 9am via As always there will be an exclusive pre-sale for IRON MAIDEN fanclub members.
Says founder member and bassist Steve Harris,
“Following the release of our latest album, Senjutsu, we updated the current Legacy of the Beast Tour a little by opening the show with the first 3 songs from it, with the Japanese Palace stage set. As it doesn’t make a lot of sense to repeat this for a Senjutsu album tour, we thought about other options and we’ve decided to revisit Somewhere In Time as that tour didn’t feature in the various retrospective history tours we’ve played over the years. They were based on our 80’s concert videos and sadly we did not film that tour (blame the manager!!).  We have had lots of requests from fans over the years for many tracks on it so we are now going to play them, plus of course a few others we know you will like! It will also be particularly satisfying to finally get to play some of the more epic tracks on Senjutsu, it’s been a long wait! 2023 is going to be an exciting time and we’re really looking forward to seeing everyone again in the UK, Ireland and around Europe”.
Manager, Rod Smallwood adds,
“This combination of the two albums we feel is very exciting. We know fans want to hear those epic cuts on Senjutsu for the first time live and we think that by combining it with an iconic album like Somewhere In Time it will make for another really special tour for fans old and new! Of course, for a new album tour in Europe and the UK we will go back largely to the relative intimacy of arenas and we know fans will be very happy about that too!”
The band are currently in North America in the final stages of their spectacular Legacy Of The Beast World Tour, interrupted for two years by Covid with many shows rescheduled twice. The tour actually started in Tallin, Estonia in May 2018, the first of 139 shows in 33 countries. By the last show in Tampa, Florida on Oct 27 this year the band will have played to over THREE MILLION fans on this epic world tour.
Support on the UK & Ireland tour will be announced at a later date. The shows are:
JUN 24                3 ARENA, DUBLIN                                                       IRELAND

Fresh from dominating the main stages at Reading & Leeds festivals over the weekend, Enter Shikari are today sharing the video for their latest single, ‘The Void Stares Back’ feat. Wargasm. The song became the subject of much conversation over the weekend as the band brought Wargasm themselves out on stage with them for a first live airing.

Lead vocalist / producer Rou Reynolds previously described the song as being about “the forward march of social progress” and today the stunning official visual for the song is unveiled, directed by Elliot Gonzo.

Watch the video below.

Enter Shikari are also announcing that they will headline the 2023 edition of Slam Dunk Festival. Reynolds comments on the booking:

“I’ve been intoxicated by the idea of headlining Slam Dunk again ever since our Take To The Skies celebration headline set back in 2017. It’s such a great festival, always nails its bills, and has the added bonus that us lads can actually cycle to the Southern date, being that Hatfield is a neighbouring town to us!

In fact, essentially, this will be our biggest “hometown” show ever, now that the festival has grown even more. I cannot wait. In fact, I will not wait. I demand we play this tomorrow!

I think playing outdoors is my favourite thing to do in life. Just being able to look up and see the sky, with the expanse of people underneath it, all sharing the same emotions and experience, it’s just such a raw, beautiful, and reifying thing.

Slam Dunk is a festival I try to attend every year regardless of whether we’re playing it. I love both the sites, and it’s always full of mates and has such a convivial vibe. (That’s my word of the week).

We’re already thinking about stage production ideas, we’re going to do everything we can to make this our biggest show yet.”

Today, internationally acclaimed, multiple-award winning British musician YUNGBLUD has released his energetic new single Don’t Feel Like Feeling Sad Today.’ The high- octane track, written by Dominic Harrison (aka YUNGBLUD) and Matt Schwartz, exec produced by Chris Greatti, offers a taste of what’s to come from his highly anticipated third album YUNGBLUD’, set for global release on September 2nd via LOCOMOTION/Geffen Records. Pre-order/add/save YUNGBLUD HERE.
Listen to ‘Don’t Feel Like Feeling Sad Today’ HERE.
The release of Don’t Feel Like Feeling Sad Today‘ follows the filming of the track’s accompanying video last week (Monday, June 20th) which caused chaos on London’s Southbank as YUNGBLUD invited fans down to be involved. The video, directed by Tom Pallant and YUNGBLUD, showcases the artist and his fans getting chaotic in true YUNGBLUD style, drenching themselves during water fights, as he performs the song on a flatbed truck adorned in slogans. With a mass of fans taking over the location, armed with posters and water pistols, the wet-and-wild scene was subsequently deemed as overcrowding and shut down by the Metropolitan police authorities.
Watch the performance video for ‘Don’t Feel Like Feeling Sad Today’ HERE.
Speaking about the inspiration and meaning of the track, YUNGBLUD reveals, “I wrote this song on a morning when I didn’t even want to get out of bed. I sat and looked at the ceiling, head full of so much shit, reading what the internet was saying about me that day, and I just didn’t feel like feeling sad. I wrote these words to help me stand up. To me this song is what happiness feels like. Happiness with a bite. A defiant sort of happiness. Looking at yourself in the mirror and telling the sadness to fuck off and come back another day. I wanted this song to be a little part of someone’s day, no matter what they’re going through they can put this on and feel a bit stronger today. That’s the vision, that’s the dream… That’s why when we made the video. It needed to replicate that idea. My manager asked me ‘what can we do, that no one else does?’ And the concept came to us. All over the world I meet my fans in the streets, to feel a connection. To look into another person’s eyes and see that they’re going through the same things as me. It’s kind of become a ritual of ours. Put it this way, the fucking police all over the world know when we’re town! So I said let’s roll some cameras, pull up a truck, no permits, no permission, tell people to meet me at a location and have a massive water fight. Sing, scream, and feel together. Imperfect, raw, real … happy.”
Last weekend, YUNGBLUD hit the iconic John Peel Stage at Glastonbury 2022 for an explosive debut performance. Playing to a packed-out tent, YUNGBLUD’s set included fan-favorites such as ‘Memories’, ‘parents‘, and ‘The Funeral’ alongside brand new, unreleased tracks ‘Tissues’ and ‘I cry 2′, taken from his upcoming self-titled album. The raucous performance saw the crowd chanting for an encore, whilst sending Twitter into a frenzy with YUNGBLUD trending at no.6 on UK Twitter and subsequently sending his past two Albums 21th Century Liability and Weird straight back into the top 15 on the UK album chart. Check out the full Glastonbury performance here. Over the weekend, YUNGBLUD also joined Chris Difford (Squeeze) on stage at The Acoustic Tent for a special performance of ‘Up The Junction’.
In July, he will head to Australia, New Zealand, and Japan to complete his ‘LIFE ON MARS” tour, followed by a return to North American shores this fall for select dates, including festival appearances at Austin City Limits, Louder Than LifeRiot Fest, and Firefly Music Festival. For a full list of tour dates go to:
Rarely does an artist come along such as YUNGBLUD, who has undeniably become Gen-Z’s rock n’ roll poster child. Fearlessly advocating for the weirdos, freaks and the marginalized in the world, from the ground up, YUNGBLUD has amassed legions of dedicated fans from all over the world, who flock to his sold-out shows each night and scream every word to his songs as if their lives depend on it. With co-signs from rock legends such as Mick JaggerOzzy OsbourneSteve Jones, and Dave GrohlYUNGBLUD’Strajectory is looking brighter and more exciting than ever.
Last month, YUNGBLUD released his latest single ‘Memories’ ft. WILLOW [LISTEN HERE]. The track, which surpassed 1 million streams in its first week, was accompanied by an official music video directed by Colin Tilley [WATCH HERE]. Speaking on the song, YUNGBLUD revealed: “This song is about letting go of past traumas you may have experienced and voicing them to the world. There’s something freeing about turning painful memories from your past into lessons for your future – I want people to scream this song out and it be cathartic. It’s about coming together and shedding pain, turning it into positive energy and sharing the burden with each other.”
In March, YUNGBLUD released ‘The Funeral’ alongside a music video featuring Ozzy & Sharon Osbourne [WATCH HERE}. ‘The Funeral‘ has accumulated more than 25 million combined video and global streams and continues to grow. He performed the song on CBS’ The Late Late Show with James Corden [WATCH HERE].
More exciting news and detail on his forthcoming album to come.
‘Don’t Feel Like Feeling Sad Today’ is available everywhere now.

Djo, the solo project of musician / producer / actor Joe Keery, is back with new music.  Today, Djo announces his new album DECIDE out September 16th. Late last week, the Djo hotline went up allowing fans to dial (928)-8-DECIDE to hear a trippy 8-bit audio teaser. Today, he has released the first single from the forthcoming record – “Change.” “Change” is a psych-funk journey with heavy synths and influences as wide reaching as Parliament Funkadelic and the 70’s glam of T. Rex.

Listen to “Change” on streaming services here or share on YouTube below.

Djo’s new album, DECIDE will be released on September 16th and is the follow up to TWENTY TWENTY, his 2019 critically acclaimed guitar-forward record and his first solo-effort since departing his band, the Chicago psych rock outfit Post Animal. Keery –who is of course also known far and wide for his acclaimed acting roles in such blockbuster projects as Stranger Things – has been making music since his teens, spending over two years with Post Animal before making his solo debut as Djo. DECIDE was created with musician / engineer Adam Thein throughout the pandemic with final recording taking place at Sound Factory in Los Angeles. DECIDE serves as a sort of aural history of Keery’s late 20’s. It features reflections on growth, relationships and  navigating it all in a world filled with technology at its center. It’s his sonic ambitions however that take these introspections and melt them into a warped reality with each layered synth pulling the listener’s emotional strings.

From the release of TWENTY TWENTY and subsequent singles, Djo’s music has had an enormous amount of success. #Djo has racked up nearly 42 million hits on TikTok , has over 100 million global Spotify and Apple streams and over 133,000 Shazams. Keery self-releases all his music through AWAL.

Djo has been performing live throughout 2022, road-testing the songs from Decide and making appearances so far this year at Shaky Knees, Boston Calling and Bottle Rock festivals. Fans can catch him this summer and fall  at Lollapalooza, Sea Hear Now and Austin City Limits Festival. 

Djo – “Change” single artwork | Download image here


Djo – the critically acclaimed brainchild of multi-talented musician/actor Joe Keery – makes its long awaited return with the game-changing new album, DECIDE. A spellbinding collage of snaky pop hooks, neon melodies, and deeply personal singer-songwriter lyricism, the album melds high-tech songcraft with quick wit, irrepressible spirit, and an impressive breadth of vision that showcases glowing synths and big beats over the trippy guitars that defined 2019’s acclaimed debut, TWENTY TWENTY. Blissed-out bops like “Change” see Keery delving deep into a broad spectrum of eclectic influences, deconstructing hyperpop, euphoric psychedelia, spiky new wave, and symphonic 70’s rock into something utterly unique via dauntless melodies and technical innovation.

DECIDE is out everywhere Sept 16.

The Beths announce their new album, Expert In A Dying Field, out September 16th on Carpark Records, and share the new single/video, Silence Is Golden.” On Expert In A Dying Field, Elizabeth Stokes’ songwriting positions her somewhere between being a novelist and a documentarian. The songs collected here are autobiographical, but they’re also character sketches of relationships – platonic, familial, romantic – and more importantly, their aftermaths. The shapes and ghosts left in absences. The question that hangs in the air: what do you do with how intimately versed you’ve become in a person, once they’re gone from your life?

The third LP from the New Zealand quartet houses 12 jewels of tight, guitar-heavy songs that worm their way into your head, an incandescent collision of power-pop and skuzz. With Expert, The Beths wanted to make an album meant to be experienced live, for both the listeners and themselves. They wanted it to be fun – to hear, to play – in spite of the prickling anxiety throughout the lyrics, the fear of change and struggle to cope. Expert is an extension of the same sonic palette the band has built across their catalog, pop hooks embedded in incisive indie rock. 

Most of Expert was recorded at guitarist Jonathan Pearce’s studio on Karangahape Road in Tāmaki Makaurau, Aotearoa (Auckland, New Zealand) – and sometimes in the building’s cavernous stairwell at 1AM – toward the end of 2021, until they were interrupted by a four-month national lockdown. They traded notes remotely for months, songwriting from afar and fleshing out the arrangements alone, the first time they’d written together in such a way. The following February, The Beths left the country for the first time in more than two years to tour across the US, and simultaneously finish mixing the album on the road. That latter half felt more collaborative, with everyone on-hand to trade notes in real time, until it all culminated in a chaotic three-day studio mad-dash in Los Angeles. There, Expert finally became the record they were hearing in their heads.

The result is a capsule of The Beths’ most electrifying and exciting output, a sonic spectrum. “Silence is Golden,” with its propulsive drum line and stop-start staccato of a guitar line winding up and down, is one of the band’s sharpest and most driving. “The song is about stress and anxiety manifesting as an intolerance to noise,” says Stokes. “Where each new sound makes you more and more stressed.”

Red Hot Chili Peppers, P!nk, Paramore, Lil Nas X, Kacey Musgraves, The Chicks, SZA, and Flume will all be headlining the Austin City Limits Festival!
