Panic! at the Disco
Panic! at the Disco Listen to the Interview Here Richie: Lets talk about the show tonight and how has everything been going with the new album and the tour? Brendon Urie and Dallon Weekes: It’s great we got a new stage set up its going to be awesome. It’s great because were playing the news songs and it’s always great see the crowd react to that, but there are not a lot of moments where you can rest it’s just song back to back to back and its pretty fun. Richie: I heard that the last track on your new album is your vows to your wife is that right? Brendon Urie and Dallon Weekes: Uh, kind of. Actually we wrote private vows to each other. We didn’t want to do it publicly at the wedding we just kind of wanted a big party with everybody. And when I told her that she said well we’ll just do private vows and I said before we even discus that I just wanted to write a song for just how greatful I was to have met her and be with her. For this first time in my life I felt changed and I could talked about past experiences without guilt, I was kind of a different guy. It’s a pretty simple song too like there are now SAT words on it. It was a really nice moment out of nowhere out of left field and it’s the only on the record that does that. Richie: One of the things I love about Panic at the Disco are some of the tracks that never make the radio, I just love some of those gems like “Sarah Smiles”. Brendon Urie and Dallon Weekes: I think the same way too though like some of our favorite songs are songs that weren’t singles like the deep cuts, I think really music lovers really appreciate the stuff that most people wouldn’t know about. That’s where you really find out about the artist you kind of learn a little bit more. You keep hearing that album format is dead you know people don’t buy albums or listen to albums any more and that’s a real shame to me because to hear a completed piece of art by and artist is still special to me and important.

Pearl Jam's Jeff Ament broke a dude's nose! jon | Mid Day

Pearl Jam's Jeff Ament broke a dude's nose!

A Pearl Jam fan had his nose broken by PJ's bass man Jeff Ament last week.  It was not some on stage scuffle, or even a back stage rock and roll incident though.. It was actually a what the fan describes as a rough game of basketball.   Well that's..  Still..  Kind of exciting.  Right?

Sherif Hassan tells Australia's Triple J that Ament actually broke his nose during the pick-up game in New Zealand, which also included Arcade Fire frontman Win Butler.  Hassan says Ament made up for the broken nose by giving him and some friends tickets to the event and backstage passes. He says the injury didn't bother him as much after he spent some time hanging out with New Zealand singer Lorde between shows and got a shout out from Eddie Vedder during Pearl Jam's performance. 

Kids down unda are tough!

CHVRCHES Interview for Meet The Bands Richie T |

CHVRCHES Interview for Meet The Bands

Iain Cook

LISTEN HERE

From: Glasgow, Scotland

The Pronunciation

A lot of people struggle with the pronunciation think that it's "chu-vur-ches" which is hilarious to me and baffling at the same time.

Previous band names:

The Runner Up choice was Shark Week.

"The Mother We Share" as their first single

We just wanted to go with what we felt was our strongest song or our most immediate song perhaps. Or even the song that best represents the sound of our band for the first time.

"Under The Tide"

I like that song a lot! It's an unusual choice. It doesn't have Lauren on lead vocals...Lauren writes most of the lyrics in the band so I never ask her what the songs are about. I have a feeling that it's a really sad story behind that song, but what it's actually about I have no idea.

Switching between lead vocalists

In terms of Martin being on lead vocals for that song, we never really plan out thinking, "Ok this is gonna be Martin's song, this is gonna be Lauren's song". We tend to kind of have both of them sing - whichever one feels right for the song - and that'll be the one that we end up going with. The song "We Sink" which is the second track on our album - that was going to be Martin on lead vocal right up until the last minute and then we decided to go with the Lauren version. I think it's good that we have two really good singers in the band as well because we get to vary things up a bit.
