Bring Me The Horizon


Tainy has renewed his deal with Sony Music Publishing, continuing a partnership that began in 2005. “I am grateful that my career has allowed me to reach new heights not only on the artistic and creative side, but also on the business side”, he says. “I appreciate having such great partners on the publishing end. Excited for the next chapter with the SMP family”.



Live Nation boss Michael Rapino has signed a new five year contract with the live giant. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the new deal includes a significant pay rise that will see him earn up to $30 million a year – two-thirds in cash, one-third in shares. Though 90% of that package is performance related.



Bring Me The Horizon have released new single ‘Strangers’. “The song came out of a long writing trip in LA”, says the band’s Oli Sykes. “As soon as the lyric ‘we’re just a room full of strangers’ came it took on such a deeper double meaning – how it would feel to be performing it live as that’s what it is, all strangers connecting on this mad level, and that it was like rehab”.

Sophie Ellis-Bextor has teamed up with Wuh Oh for new track ‘Hypnotized’. Says Ellis-Bextor: “’Hypnotized’ is my favourite kind of wonky pop song. Fast paced, melodic and has a kind of ‘what did I just listen to?!’ brilliance to it too. There’s also a dance routine if you fancy. It’s a pleasure to collaborate with the very talented Wuh Oh and the song has been going down so amazingly when we do it live”.

Keane’s Tom Chaplin has announced that he will release new solo album, ‘Midpoint’, on 2 Sep. Here’s the title track. He’ll be touring in October, finishing up at the Palladium in London on 22 Oct.

Coldplay have released a video for ‘Biuytiful’ from their ‘Music Of The Spheres’ album. It’s got all puppets and that in it.

Christine And The Queens will release new album ‘Redcar Les Adorables Étoiles’ on 23 Sep. A launch show will follow at Royal Festival Hall in London on 30 Sep.

Wet Leg have gone and got themselves a Soulwax remix of ‘Too Late Now’.

Alvvays will release their third album, ‘Blue Rev’, on 7 Oct. Here’s new single ‘Pharmacist’.

Exit Kid have released new single ‘Sura’. They’ve also got two London shows coming up at Paper Dress Vintage on 14 Jul and Jaguar Shoes on 4 Aug.

Attawalpa has released new single ‘Ignore The Pollution’. “Lyrically, ‘Ignore The Pollution’ is about the desire of switching off from a loud world”, he says. “Ignoring the constant stream of information one is subjected to”.

M(h)aol have released new single ‘Bored Of Men’.

Mikeneko Homeless have released new single ‘Darling’, taken from their upcoming new album ‘Time To Love’.



Queen and Adam Lambert will livestream a new concert film recorded at the O2 Arena on 24 Jul. Tickets available here.

Caterina Barbieri will play the Barbican in London on 26 Oct. Tickets go on sale tomorrow.
