Other notable announcements and developments today…

• You might think this new Tool album is never going to make it out into the world, but you’d be wrong. Probably. The band have at least made it into the studio long enough now for guitarist Adam Jones to post an Instagram photo.

• OK Go have posted their latest ludicrously complicated new video up on that YouTube. Filmed in Japan there are bonus points for it featuring a cameo from J-pop trio and CMU faves Perfume. The song’s alright too. Watch here.

• Pop wonderboy Fryars, real name Benjamin Garrett, has released a new mixtape titled ‘The Boy In The Hood’. Whilst Lily Allen sings on one of its tracks, ‘King Many Layers’, that’s really only the tip of the iceberg. Traverse the entire iceberg by streaming the mixtape (which Garrett says is the ‘B-movie’ to his forthcoming LP ‘Power’, out 17 Nov) here.

• THE synthpop act of yesteryear (well, 2012), NZCA Lines aka Michael Lovett, is back with a new track titled ‘New Atmosphere’. Whilst Moshi Moshi will release it as an advent treat on 8 Dec, stream it in the meantime here.

• One-time tall ship sailor now popstar Kiesza is showing off the video for her new single ‘No Enemiesz’, from the album ‘Sound Of A Woman’, which drops anchor on 1 Dec. It’s a bit like her ‘Hideaway’ video in that it displays Kiesza’s dancing skills, only the trick with this latest visual is that Kiesza’s backing dancers appear from discarded coats and things. BEHOLD.

• Granddad-of-goth Marilyn Manson’s abysmally-titled new track ‘Third Day Of A Seven Day Binge’ is available now to download upon signing up to his mailing list. Or waive that commitment and simply play it on YouTube now.

CMU approved fellow Altrego has announced a new single, called ‘Coming At You’. And coincidentally, he’ll be coming right at you next month when he plays a gig at The Barfly in Camden. On 11 Nov, to be exact. Make a note.

Approved tropical pop trio Juce have invited fans to sip whatever it is they’re selling via a new five-track mini-LP titled ‘Taste The Juce’. Hear the band’s new single ‘6th Floor’ here, and catch them live this exact night when they play London’s Electrowerkz.

• Liverpool Sound City 2015 already has a headliner in the form of Belle & Sebastian, though the bigger news is that the showcase festival will be setting up shop at the city’s Bramley Moore Dock and popping up a bunch of stages, tents and other such contraptions to host the bands who play, rather than using city centre venues as in the past. Which is all rather exciting. More here.
