The Album Leaf

Drummer Tim Reece, who also played with Via Satellite and others, lost his battle with cancer and passed away on May 15.

Birdy Bardot

The Heavy Guilt

After a few years hiatus, Erik Canzona has joined forces with Alfred Howard to write and record a new album dropping later this year. Catch a preview June 23 at the Casbah.


The reggae band's Right Direction Spring Tour was launched in San Antonio, moving east to Florida, up the coast to their original hometown of Boston, and ending June 3 in Tucson, AZ.

The Young Wild

"You've Seen This Before, We Know," the band's ten-part web series, is streaming on their website.

Billy Shaddox

His upcoming album Record Keeper (due via Leesta Vall Recordings in Brooklyn, NYC) is preceded by a single for "Saint Vrain" b/w "Learn to Sink." "These songs were recorded and produced by me at my home studio the Gulch," says Shaddox.

Eddie Vedder

The longtime Chicago Cubs fan makes a guest appearance in a new Major League Baseball commercial which was just released for the team, promoting the new baseball season.


This week's newest Ratt lineup features three off-and-on members - Stephen Pearcy, Warren DeMartini, and Juan Croucier - now backed by Carlos Cavazo and with Thin Lizzy/Black Star Riders drummer Jimmy DeGrasso replacing the increasingly litigious Bobby Blotzer.

Greg Douglass

"Just booked a month-long tour in the UK next January with my Steve Miller tribute band, the Pompatous of Love, doing theaters," Douglass tells the Reader. "A tribute band with an original member in it is an easy sell, especially across the pond."

Darius Degher

A song by his '80s new wave band Darius & the Magnets, "Saturday at 3PM," can be heard in the new film Pitching Tents, which is set in 1984.

Adam Gnade

Gnade collaborated with Planet B (Gabe Serbian and Justin Pearson of the Locust and Head Wound City) for Life Is the Meat Grinder That Sucks In All Things, a new prequel to Locust House featuring minimalist jazz percussion and landscapes of sweeping, windy Eraserhead-esque ambience.

Hot Snakes

John Reis and friends are recording tracks at Singing Serpent studio for their first new album since 2004's Audit in Progress.


They'll tour northern California, Oregon, and Washington, beginning July 12 in San Francisco and including a July 15 date at Aberdeen, Washington's three-day musical celebration of hometown hero Kurt Cobain.
