Swerve have shared their new single, a cover of The Stone Roses' iconic track "I Wanna Be Adored." The song will be included on their forthcoming "The Darkroom" EP that is set to be released on June 21st.

Greg Mahdesian had this to say about the new cover track, "The Stone Roses made one of my favorite records (I've actually purposefully never listened to Second Coming) and 'I Wanna Be Adored' is their most iconic track.

Violent Femmes will be giving fans a one-two punch this Fall when they perform BOTH their ground-breaking, debut, self-titled album and their sophomore release, Hallowed Ground, during a special limited run of shows. This exclusive routing kicks off Thursday, September 26 at the House of Blues in Lake Buena Vista, FL, and runs through Tuesday, October 8, culminating at the Avondale Brewing Company in Birmingham, AL. Tickets go on sale Friday, May 24 at 10 AM local time.

Throughout these unprecedented performances, the Femmes will start the show by playing their second album, Hallowed Ground, which is celebrating its 40th anniversary in 2024. Following a brief intermission, the band will retake the stage and play their debut record, Violent Femmes, as well as a few fan- and band-favorites to finish the show. Serving as a sonic time capsule for the soul, these special dates will capture a pivotal moment in music as Femmes' Lead Vocalist and Guitarist Gordon Gano wrote the songs for both albums while he was still in high school. In fact, the tracks for Hallowed Ground were penned long before the release of Violent Femmes, but the band wanted to focus on upbeat songs for the debut album and wanted to "confuse people" with the more experimental songs that ended up as Hallowed Ground.

GRAMMY Award-winning singer-songwriter Joe Ely has announced his new album Driven to Drive, due out August 2 via Rack 'Em Records / Thirty Tigers. With twenty-three albums and several million miles under the West Texas native's belt, Driven to Drive is Ely's first road album, featuring a collection of songs inspired by his travels from different eras of his illustrious career which spans five decades. Along with the announcement, he has shared the official video for the album's first single "Odds of the Blues" (feat. Bruce Springsteen). The video was directed by Matthew Eskey and pulls from home video footage shot by Joe Ely, his wife Sharon and their families over the years.

"I got the idea for the song from hanging out at an all night after hours joint on the edge of east Lubbock called TV's... there was always a dice game in the back room, the pool table had a bad lean, and the jukebox mainly played old blues songs," explains Joe Ely about the origins of "Odds of the Blues." "I wrote the song later when I put my studio together in Austin. I asked Bruce recently if he would like to sing with me on this song and he said he'd love to. We've been long lost friends for a long time. One of my memories of us singing together was in Dublin, Ireland when we both got on stage with Jerry Lee Lewis and Shane MacGowan and sang 'Great Balls of Fire.'" (continue)

Halifax alt-rock trio June Body are gearing up to release their new album, "Last Everythings" on June 7th, and to celebrate we asked Connor to tell us about the latest single "Take Our Time Back". Here is the story:

Some people say that musical instruments have songs living inside of them, waiting to be discovered. When I turned 21, I decided to spend literally every penny I had to see as much of Europe as I could. But not having access to a guitar while traveling was weighing on me by the time I got to Germany. At a flea market outside of Berlin, I bought a Hofner classical guitar for something like 50 euro. It didn't come with a case, so I lugged it around for the remainder of the trip. I remember hearing it making sounds in the overhead luggage compartments of buses and trains as it bounced around. I think I had originally planned on selling the guitar at the end of the trip, but it felt like I had adopted a child. We had been through so much together. So I bought a case and sent it home with me. I had no idea this guitar contained the ten songs that would comprise a June Body album in 2024. (continue)
