Def Leppard have expanded their existing partnership with Primary Wave Music, with the company taking a stake in the band’s publishing catalogue and recording royalties. “We are THRILLED to continue building and elevating not only the band’s musical body of work but their impact in pop culture and the industry in general”, says Chief Digital Strategy Officer Rob Dippold.



Black Country, New Road frontman Isaac Wood has left the band, citing mental health reasons, just days before the release of their second album. All upcoming tour dates have been cancelled.



Doja Cat has released the video for ‘Get Into It (Yuh)’ from her ‘Planet Her’ album. She’s also cancelled her appearance at next week’s BRIT Awards because a number of her crew have come down with COVID.

George Ezra will release his third album ‘Gold Rush Kid’ on 10 Jun. Here’s new single ‘Anyone For You’.

Dashboard Confessional have released new single ‘Burning Heart’. “The conceit of this song reflects the fact that I’m holding in a lot”, says frontman Chris Carrabba. “I have a lot to say to the person I love in this moment. The idea in this setting is that I’m here to fight for this”.

Tokyo Girls Style have released new single ‘Days – Kimi Dake Ga Inai Machi’.

Whipped Cream has teamed up with Moore Kismet, Big Freedia and Uniique3 for new track ‘Hold Up’. “Once I was done with the beat”, says Whipped Cream, “I wanted to bring on a variety of artists that have really inspired me to keep going as my true self and have them lay their message down on the record in any way they wanted [with] the message ‘I am who I am whether you like it, accept it or not and I was born to do this, be here and shine’”.



Peaches will be in the UK for a run of tour dates in June, including a performance at Grace Jones’s Meltdown Festival at London’s Southbank Centre on 11 Jun.
