Blur have announced plans to release a career-spanning documentary No Distance Left To Run will be in UK cinemas on January 19, 2010. You can watch the trailer here. Meanwhile, Damon Albarn has revealed to the Guardian that his other (cartoon) band Gorillaz has a new album coming out called Plastic Beach.
We’re unsure of when their album will be written/recorded/released, but good news in The Strokes’ camp is that they’ll be headlining the Isle of Wight Festival on June 12, 2010. That’s a start, I guess.
Zooey Deschanel and M. Ward are set to release their second album as She & Him in the spring. “She” also confirmed that they will be touring in support of Volume Two.
Holy moly! Godflesh is reuniting! The legendary industrial metal act led by the ridiculously prolific Justin K. Broadrick will eat his own words when the band play at Hellfest in France on the weekend of June 18th to 20th.
Ted Leo & The Pharmacists have unveiled their first album for new label Matador. The Brutalist Bricks will hit shops on March 9, 2010. You can here a brand spanking new song called “Even Heroes Have To Die” here.
