Published Oct 25, 2014Here we are once again to look back, gather up and make sense of the news week that was. If you feel something might have flown under your radar, here's your chance to catch back up.
First off, it was straight-up huge week for new album announcements. Leading the pack, though, was none other than the long-absent Sleater-Kinney, who announced No Cities to Love. The album marks the trio's first since 2005's The Woods, meaning it's indeed been a decade since we last heard from Corin Tucker, Carrie Brownstein and Janet Weiss.
Also on the new album front, Panda Bear finally revealed his anticipated Panda Bear Meets the Grim Reaper (and released an EP in the meantime), while the Decemberists announced they will soon return with What a Terrible World, What a Beautiful World. On top of that, Flea shed light on the next Red Hot Chili Peppers album, Hooded Fang teased a new LP and Danzig revealed he too has a new studio album on the way — not to mention a a new track for The Walking Dead.
In other news, U2 further apologized for their Apple rollout and revealed their Danger Mouse album may never see the light of day, Chief Keef was dropped by Interscope, Klaxons may be done (or at least in regards to touring), and At the Gates and Converge are teaming up for a joint roadtrip.
And last but not least, Record Store Day revealed its full list of exclusives for its upcoming Black Friday event.
