When it came time for dreamy French band M83 to produce a music video for their breakout 2011 hit single, “Midnight City” from the album Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming, the act turned to directors Fleur & Manu, who produced the haunting clip featuring telekinetic kids escaping a school and venturing out into the world.

For the follow-up single, “Reunion,” Fleur & Manu were again tapped to continue to story of the kids introduced in “Midnight City,” now being pursued by the handlers they escaped from in the previous clip.

Now the band’s mastermind, Anthony Gonzalez, has released the video for latest single “Wait,” another Fleur & Manu production that completes the video trilogy that began with “Midnight City.” Watch it here.



When The Gaslight Anthem last rolled through Los Angeles during their tour with Rise Against, singer Brian Fallon and drummer Benny Horowitz stopped by the KROQ studios and joined Nicole Alvarez for a chat and acoustic performance of their single “45.”

In addition to discussing Green Day’s Billie Joe Armstrong and his recent “meltdown,” the two also touched on what their recording process is like. “We’re one of those bands that actually writes songs together,” explained Fallon. “There’s always songs being written.”

Horowitz added, “I think the bands who think that their window is always going to stay open are kinda stupid. Sometimes you only get a limited time to get your songs out there to the world. Who knows when the hell that’s gonna stop.”



Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl has announced that his documentary film (and directorial debut), Sound City, will launch at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival, scheduled for January 17 – 27 in Park City, Utah.

The movie is a loving look back at the now-shuttered Sound City recording studio of Van Nuys, California, and the many artists who’ve recorded classic albums there, including Nine Inch Nails, Rage Against the Machine, Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers, Cheap Trick, Metallica and Fleetwood Mac. Grohl himself is part of the studio’s storied past, with Nirvana recording their legendary Nevermind album there.



The days of gifting the music lovers in your life with a copy of their favorite artist’s latest CD just doesn’t cut it anymore. In this rapid-fire, technological world, any self-respecting band fanatic surely already has it, along with any number of bonus tracks and remixes by the time the holidays roll around.

In order to really impress the sonically obsessed on your gift-giving list, dig a little deeper and look into the myriad of merchandise offered up by the world’s rock and roll heroes. Beyond the typical t-shirts and occasional baseball jersey, artist merch has evolved to include a dizzying array of products including everything from Snoop Dogg slippers to caskets emblazoned with images of legendary shock-rockers KISS, which comes in standard and premium models (KISS fans opting for cremation can even pick up an urn so their remains can rock on beyond the grave).

Traversing the wild world of the interwebs, we’ve corralled this collection of 25 branded and official pieces of awesome rock and roll band merch that will make you the coolest gift-giver of this holiday season.



The HFSmas Keg Nog at Rams Head Live is just about here (it’s this Thursday night!), and just days before the show, Spam caught up with Tony Fagenson of co-headliners Eve 6 to talk about how much they love coming to Baltimore, and the brand new video for their song “Curtain”. Hear the interview and check out the reverse-filmed, one-shot video, for which lead singer Max Collins actually had to learn how to sing the entire song backwards!

Traveling across America as part of the Monster Energy Drink Outbreak Tour in promotion of their latest release, Stepped Up And Scratched, UK metalcore band Asking Alexandria were involved in a tour bus crash that left the band’s guitarist Ben Bruce with a sprained ankle.

According to the member’s various tweets, the band was somewhere between Cleveland and Chicago on December 2 when the tour bus mishap occurred.



Calling Jack White prolific is an understatement. Since emerging in the early ’00s fronting the White Stripes, he’s launched two more bands (the Raconteurs and Dead Weather), as well as a successful solo career, capped by his breakout 2012 full-length album, Blunderbuss.

But for many longtime fans, there will always be something special about the White Stripes, which officially dissolved in early 2011 amidst rumors regarding the band’s drummer, Meg White, and her much-publicized bouts with anxiety.
