Dave Grohl


The CEO of Believe-owned DIY distributor TuneCore, Scott Ackerman, has announced that will step down next month. A new chief is now being recruited. Ackerman will continue to consult for the TuneCore business, reporting into overall Believe Group CEO Denis Ladegaillerie.



Stuck for something to do in isolation, Dave Grohl has set up an Instagram account to share some short stories drawn from his actual life. He’s basically publishing his autobiography on social media. “My mother was a brilliant English teacher, my father a wicked speechwriter”, he notes. “So I decided to rebel by not paying attention to grammar and/or punctuation in school. So, have mercy. Not going for a Nobel Prize In Literature here”.



Run The Jewels have released new single ‘Oh La La’. This follows ‘Yankee And The Brave (Ep 4)’, which they put out over the weekend. Both tracks are from their upcoming new album ‘RTJ4’.

With their new album ‘Gigaton’ out on Friday, Pearl Jam have released new track ‘Quick Escape’.

Five Seconds Of Summer have released new single ‘Wildflower’ ahead of the release of their new album, ‘CALM’, this Friday. “We wanted to make the chorus kind of a choose-your-own-adventure, where some words are left out and then accentuated by these big stabs of synth”, says bassist Calum Hood. “It lets everyone come up with their own interpretation, and fill in whatever they think those missing lyrics might be”.

Shabazz Palaces have released new single ‘Chocolate Souffle’. New album ‘The Don Of Diamond Dreams’ is out through Sub Pop on 17 Apr.

Deerhoof have announced that they will release new album ‘Future Teenage Cave Artists’ on 29 May through Joyful Noise. Here’s the title track.

Nadine Shah has released new single ‘Trad’. Her new album, ‘Kitchen Sink’, is out on 5 Jun.

Rich The Kid has released the video for ‘No Loyalty’ from his recent ‘Boss Man’ album.

Glass Animals have released the video for their recent single ‘Your Love (Déjà Vu)’.

NZCA Lines has released new single ‘Pure Luxury’. “It’s a sadistic joyride set in penthouse suites where the gold trim hides a rotting plywood facade, muscle cars are bought with credit cards and barbed wire fences separate luxury resorts from the slums beyond their walls”, he says. “The fantasy of attainment in a world that has no future”. He’s also announced that he’ll play his biggest headline show to date at Heaven in London on 28 Oct.

Bicep have released new single ‘Atlas’. “It would’ve been unthinkable to foresee the circumstances this track would be released in when we were making it”, say the duo. “Our frame of mind was so positive then, fresh off the back of our live tour, full of excitement for the next phase. ‘Atlas’ was our attempt at summing up some of the euphoric moments we experienced on that tour across those two years. It feels like those moments are very far away for all of us right now, but we hope this serves as some form of distraction amidst all this chaos”.

The Lovely Eggs have released a homemade video for new single ‘Still Second Rate’. They’ve also announced that they are rescheduling their April tour dates in July. Their new album, ‘I Am Moron’, will still come out on 3 Apr though.
