Cursive Release Remastered Version Of “Am I Not Yours?”

Cursive will be releasing a remaster of their monumental album, The Ugly Organ, on Nov. 24 via Saddle Creek, and we have just been gifted with a taste of the nostalgic sonic trip of “Am I Not Yours?”

“Am I Not Yours?” was originally featured on the band’s split with Eastern Youth, and 8 Teeth To Eat You in 2002, and is one of the eight additional tracks to be featured on The Ugly Organ‘s reissue.

The band will also be hitting the road near the beginning of next year, so if The Ugly Organ remaster brings you …

Dayseeker To Release Deluxe Reissue Of ‘What It Means To Be Defeated’

Last year the post hardcore outfit Dayseeker released their debut full-length effort, What It Means To Be Defeated. Since then, the band has kept themselves busy with touring. Apparently that’s not all they’ve been up to though, which was made clear by their exciting announcement.

The band confirmed they are releasing a deluxe reissue of What It Means To Be Defeated next month. The reissue will feature four acoustic renditions of their popular songs. The original tracks have also been remixed and remastered. You can pre-order the album through InVogue Records’ MerchNow page.

In addition to the announcement, the …

Cursive Announce ‘The Ugly Organ’ Reissue And Details For Upcoming Tour

Get ready to feel old. The Omaha, Nebraska-based indie rock outfit known as Cursive have been together since 1995. They released their debut full-length album, The Disruption, in 1996. With so many albums under their belt (thirteen, to be exact), you’d think it would be difficult to pick just one fan favorite but I think it’s safe to say that most people can agree The Ugly Organ is their best work. It was released back in 2003, but people still love it.

It’s because of this reason I am excited to report that the band has confirmed they will …

M83 Shares Video for “Moonchild”

After recently reissuing his first three records, M83‘s Anthony Gonzalez has shared yet another video for a track off the 2005 effort, Before the Dawn Heals Us. This time, it’s for the track “Moonchild.”

One of the most moving and captivating tracks on the record, the video treatment gives us an equally powerful scene that starts with the camera zoomed in on the faces, specifically the eyes, of multiple young adults and focusing on the idea of them witnessing some form of a triangle light. Beyond that, we get a mysterious man, that walks through the forest, shrouded …

Poster And Trailer For ‘Saw’ 10th Anniversary Re-Release Revealed

There are very few horror films that have left me with the kind of open-jawed reaction that lingers in the back of your mind for years on end, but the original Saw definitely makes the cut. The entire film is solid, not to mention the unforgettable finale, and this October Universal is bringing all the terror of the movie back to the big screen for a limited time.

Saw turns 10 this year, and as several years have passed since Saw: The Final Chapter hit theaters the studio that helped reignite the public’s interest in torture-related horror is re-releasing James …

Modest Mouse Are Reissuing Their First Two Albums

Modest Mouse have finally announced the release of an album – actually, two albums. Neither is the one they’ve been working on for a few years, though. They are reissues of the first two full-lengths, This Is a Long Drive for Someone With Nothing to Think About and The Lonesome Crowded West.

This move is unsurprising, given the reissues of The Moon & AntarcticaThe Fruit That Ate Itself, and Sad Sappy Sucker released over the last few years. These new reissues will be released by Isaac Brock’s Glacial Pace Recordings and Fat Possum. Accompanying each …

Unreleased Smashing Pumpkins Remix by P. Diddy Is Here

Almost two decades ago, P. Diddy, Puff Daddy, Puffy–whatever you want to call him–reportedly took his turn on two of Smashing Pumpkins‘ classic songs, “Perfect” and “Ava Adore.” The former was released shortly after they were announced. “Ava Adore,” on the other hand, has never seen the light of day. Until now.

This is how a remix should be done. Taking elements of a song, and enhancing them with some different ideas. Removing pretty much every guitar part and replacing them with a vibrant, celestial string section with the drum track, enhances this track to a new dimension. The …

Artery Recordings Welcomes For The Win

Artery Recordings has announced the signing of California pop-core outfit For The Win. The label will re-release the band’s most recent album, More Than You Know, this fall.

I had never heard of For The Win before a press release announcing their addition to Artery hit my inbox. Before I wrote this story I took fifteen minutes to experience More Than You Know and immediately two things become alarmingly clear: 1. Gang vocals will never die. 2. This band probably promotes itself as a cross between A Day To Remember and The Wonder Years. I’m not saying that is …

Pinback Announce ‘Summer In Abaddon’ 10th Anniversary Tour Dates With Tera Melos

Indie rock got a prog update when Pinback first hit the scene in 1998. Fast forward to today and the San Diego dudes are still running fast, most recently having dropped the bright, upbeat Information Retrieved in 2012. Arguably their best album, however, is 2004′s Summer In Abaddon, an excellent showcase of Rob Crow’s distinct vocals and Armistead Burwell Smith IV’s status as one of the best modern bass players. To celebrate its 10th anniversary, Pinback are touring North America this fall with math rockers Tera Melos in tow.

To honor the record’s anniversary, Touch & Go is reissuing the …

Jimmy Page Responds to Led Zeppelin Glastonbury Rumors

Glastonbury Festival founder Michael Eavis said earlier this year that he was “sure” Led Zeppelin would play his festival one day. Now, guitarist Jimmy Page has responded to his comments and addressed the chances of the band headlining in the coming years when talking with BBC Radio 6 Music host Shaun Keaveny.

“I haven’t heard about anything since the 2007 O2 gig, but you never know do you,” said Page. “You never know what’s going to happen tomorrow, do you?” The band has carved a spot in music history as one of the most important rock bands not just for …
