Pussy Riot's Road to Freedom, Angel Haze's 'Dirty Gold' Drama and Grimes' Roc Nation Deal in Our News Roundup
The holidays may be fast approaching, but that hardly made for a dull moment in Exclaim! newsland. For a look back on what you might have missed, we present our weekly news roundup.

First off, Russia changed its amnesty laws this week — something that could be good news for the two remaining Pussy Riot members in prison. As President Vladimir Putin confirmed, Nadya Tolokonnikova and Maria Alyokhina are set to be freed from prison despite their "disgraceful" protest.

But for a bit of (likely unneeded) drama, Angel Haze caused a whole lot of trouble this week. After detailing her Dirty Gold album, she quickly trashed her label for not giving her a 2013 release date, leaking her album in the process. The record was pulled offline within minutes, but it did get a new December 30 release date.

In some total bummer news, Dev Hynes (a.k.a. Blood Orange) lost everything in a devastating apartment fire, including his dog Cupid. A fundraiser was set up to help Hynes get back on his feet, but he said he would rather donate all funds raised to charity.

In other news, Owls announced their return, Thee Oh Sees kinda, sorta but not really went on hiatus, Grimes signed a management deal with Jay Z's Roc Nation, Bison returned with some new material, and Pusha T revealed his next record will be called King Push, which will be produced by the Neptunes.
