Published Oct 11, 2014Once again, Canada has earned itself a much-deserved long weekend. But before you get all festive on the Turkey Day, come have a look of what made the headlines here on Exclaim.ca.
First off, it was a big one for Canadian music news this week, with the announcement that Crystal Castles are no more leading the way. Or at that's what singer Alice Glass says, as she claimed "this is the end of the band" when she announced her departure this week to embark on a solo career. However, the project's manager has since said, "There will be twists and turns ahead for Crystal Castles, I wouldn't bury the dead just yet!"
In more positive news north of the border, the reunited Death From Above 1979 announced a Canadian winter tour and joined the Jingle Bell Rock concert series, the Tragically Hip revealed they are reissuing Fully Completely and taking it on tour, Neil Young detailed his Storytone and the Courtneys revealed they are returning with a new 7-inch, which even features a guest spot from Vancouver MC Young Braised.
In other news, a whole pile of A-list musical stars joined forces to cover Beach Boys' "God Only Knows," Morrissey revealed he has received cancer treatments, and Perfect Pussy's Meredith Graves took shots at Mark Kozelek over his song "War on Dugs: Suck My Cock."
Last but certainly not least, that gum you like is indeed coming back in style, as Twin Peaks is officially set to return.
