Published May 24, 2014With yet another week fading into distant memory, we're back to help you play catch-up on the week that was. If you're feeling all out of the loop, here's our news roundup to lend a hand.
First off, it was a good week for new album announcements. Not only did we get the return of Die Antwoord, who will be freaking us all over again with their Donker Mag, but we have new records from Cold Specks, Every Time I Die and Arcade Fire's Richard Reed Parry to look forward to.
Also this week in Canada we got the 2014 lineup for Ottawa's Arboretum Festival, and on a related note, Steven Lambke of headliners Constantines told all about their future reunion tour plans and upcoming reissue.
In other news, Against Me!'s Laura Jane Grace took shots at Arcade Fire over their "We Exist" video, the Black Keys spoke out on their Jack White feud and metal troupe Behemoth ran into serious work visa issues in Russia and were eventually deported.
