Good news from Bastille! The British band that has skyrocketed to worldwide success in the past year has just released the video for their new single, “bad_news”, which will be available on their Oblivion EP (out for pre-order next week). Dan Smith says they made the song in a matter of days only a few weeks ago and that more new music is on its way as well.
Though “bad_news” is more electronic than expected, it still sounds relatively unworked and casual. Dan ventures into his lower vocal range supported by a slinky bass/synth line, electronic drums, eerie background vocals, and various sound effects that lend atmosphere and depth to the track.
Bastille has always had a flair for the cinematic and macabre in their music, artwork, and especially in their videos. The "bad_news" video is less linear in storyline than their usual, featuring short gif-like clips from old black and white films and cartoons. Sinister images of clown faces, policemen, schoolchildren (and tons more) are spliced in between fuzzy slow-motion footage of Dan walking a dimly lit corridor. Near the end of the video emerges the single’s cover art: road lines (reminiscent of the Bad Blood album cover) overlaid on a low quality image of Dan in the dank hallway.
Watch the video and let us know what your favorite clip is. I’m partial to the rando with the ‘stache creepily eating popcorn at 3:50.
Look forward to new music from Bastille in the coming months, and be certain to see these gents on tour this fall! Tickets for their UCCU Center, Orem show availabile HERE at SmithsTix.com

Daymnnnnn, Weezer will be dropping their 10th studio album on September 30th called, "Everything Will Be Alright." We have been the victims of teasing the third time Rick Ocasek from The Cars has entered the studio with the boys from Weezer and it has always produced some of the finest Weezer - The Green and Blue albums.
Today they released, "Back to the Shack." Riff heavy and a slight anthemy, it's great sing along Weezer and a self-proclaimed throwback. I am not sure this is a good thing, though. What 90s band has really mad a huge splash recently by pointing out how good things used to be. The crop has not been on fire as of late. Coldplay's album is a dullard's delight. Jane's Addiction gives it a shot once in a while to no one's amusement. NIN's last one tanked though most people really wanted to like it (NIN is probably just a great live band at this point). Les Claypool's stuff falls into the same category. Scott Weiland, well, he put out that Christmas album - something more akin to a Vegas act than Rock N' Roller.
Weezer, aside from Pinkerton, has always been somewhat light and fun and you know a Weezer song when you hear it, but declaring self-awareness ane reminiscing of days gone by may not be the way to put your best foot forward.
I am going to reserve judgment until I hear the entire album. I always want Weezer to be champions.
We’ve been hearing for YEARS now “oh yeah, there’s a new Tool album coming”. Literally, YEARS. Which is almost long enough for me to have played “10,000 Days” from start to finish.
Wait, which one of these is about Prison Sex?
The members of Tool are now opening up and explain that some legal issues have added to the delay, and are mostly to blame for the gap between albums. Maynard and Co. tell the assholes at "Rolling Stone" that for the past seven years, they've been dealing with a series of lawsuits and countersuits. This hullabaloo started when a friend of guitar man Adam Jones wanted credit for artwork he claimed he gave the band. Tool's insurance company then sued the band "over technicalities" in the case, then Tool said “NUH UH” and responded with a countersuit.
Wait, did he call the people from Rolling Stone assholes?
This specific case is set to go to trial in January, but Jones says these legal issues have had an impact on the band members' relationships with each other, and adds that it's "hard to be creative when you have something awful nagging at you."
Still, Tool has found time to work on new material for the follow-up to the band's 2006 effort "10,000 Days." Drummer Danny Carey says they hope to have "something really solid" recorded by the end of the year, but he admits he said the same thing last year.
I suppose we'll wait and see!
