The Killers


The Killers have postponed their UK and Ireland tour, which was due to begin in May this year, moving it back to May and June 2022. They have added a new Scottish date at Falkirk Stadium on 7 Jun 2022 though. Support will come variously from Blossoms, Manic Street Preachers, Sam Fender and Supergrass.



Tom Robinson has been announced as a new patron of Generator, as the support agency for the music, creative and digital industries in North East England celebrates its 30th anniversary. “Musically the region has always punched above its weight over the years, producing a stream of consistently innovative artists across the genres and generations”, says Robinson. “I can’t tell you how excited I am to have this chance of becoming a part of this story, and helping this pool of extraordinary talent reach the wider audience it deserves”.

Record industry trade group BPI has appointed Casandra Strauss to the newly created position of Director Of Innovation & Special Projects. “I am proud to be part of the BPI – an organisation that truly strives to help its members thrive”, she says, “and I’m honoured to be entrusted to continue to make a difference in our community, through working on key areas that I feel so passionately about, from new tech to diversity, equality and inclusion and more”.

Talent agency CAA has promoted Chris Ibbs, Evan Kantor and Jasmin Nash to become agents in the company’s music department. “We are proud to promote these wonderfully talented individuals who have worked tirelessly to get to where they are today”, says Chief Innovation Officer and CAA board member Michelle Kydd Lee. “They have each proven their ability to live out the values of CAA on a daily basis and continue to work with passion, unparalleled client service, and an exceptional commitment to the agency’s team-centered culture”.



Miley Cyrus has released the video for ‘Angels Like You’ from her ‘Plastic Hearts’ album, filmed last month at a show with an audience of healthcare workers all fully vaccinated against COVID-19.

Doja Cat has released a video for ‘Streets’, from her 2019 album ‘Hot Pink’, capitalising on a recent viral boost on TikTok.

Warner Records has released previously unreleased Tom Petty track ‘You Saw Me Comin’. Recorded in 1992, the song features on upcoming rarities compilation ‘Finding Wildflowers’, which is out on 7 May.

Novelist has released new track ‘One One’.

Noisia’s Nik Roos has returned as Sleepnet, and is set to release new EP ‘First Light’ this Friday’. Listen to first track ‘Angel Blade’ now.

Skullcrusher has released new single ‘Storm In Summer’. Her new EP of the same name is out through Secretly Canadian on 9 Apr.

Candlebox have released new single ‘My Weakness’. “The song is kind of guttural and like ‘The Summer Of 69’ and Bruce Springsteen tunes”, says vocalist Kevin Martin. “It’s one of those love songs where you can feel the band just wants to take off with you the whole time”.
