Published Sep 22, 2012As usual, it was a busy week in Exclaim! newsland, with our pages being packed to the brim with all the week's stories. But fear not: if you worry you missed something, our news roundup has you covered.
First up, it was another big week for Canadian music. Perhaps most exciting for many was the news that the reunited Death From Above 1979 are currently working on new material. They already gave us a sampling of what to expect, but fans will get a whole lot more when the duo heads across Canada for another tour.
Also on the Canadian front, Julie Doiron announced her latest solo album So Many Days, Alexisonfire extended their farewell tour, and Mother Mother and Hannah Georgas teamed up for a Canadian trek of their own.
In more international news, we had Trent Reznor revealing the return of his How to Destroy Angels, while Fiona Apple was arrested over hash possession, Stereolab announced more vinyl reissues, and Swedish House Mafia revealed their Until Now release.
In some Exclaim! interviews, we then had Brother Ali telling us all about his Mourning in America and Dreaming in Color, Greg Dulli discussing the return and future of the Afghan Whigs, and Tom Krell giving us the scoop on How to Dress Well's new Total Loss LP.
And finally, in a move that's set to change the music landscape forever, the U.S. and Europe have approved Universal Music's purchase of EMI.
