Death Cab for Cutie Lose Chris Walla, Kanye vs. DJ Mano and Drake's Raptors Controversy in Our News Roundup
Published Aug 16, 2014Once again, we've reached that weekend, and as always, a lot of stories graced our headlines this week. So if you're feeling a bit foggy on what went down the last chunk of days, here's our news roundup to get you back up to speed.
First up, the week was met with its fair share of drama. Topping the list, we had Kanye West parting ways with his seemingly incompetent tour DJ Mano (an incident that was transformed into one of those Taiwanese animations), core Death Cab for Cutie member Chris Walla abruptly quitting the band, and reports surfacing that Morrissey was dropped by his label, only to have sources later state that wasn't entirely accurate.
On top of that, Drake got the Toronto Raptors slapped with a $25,000 fine and Glenn Danzig had his lawsuit against the Misfits thrown out.
But of course, it wasn't all controversy this week. Up here in Canada, Bahamas told us all about his new album (which he just so happens to be selling on Craigslist), Mo Kenny announced her new record, Vancouver's Victory Square Block Party revealed its 10th anniversary lineup and Rich Aucoin shed light on his upcoming Ephemeral in a new Exclaim! interview.
Finally, we got all the details on the new guest-loaded Flying Lotus album, while the music industry is playing with the idea of adopting a standard global release date for new albums (spoiler: it would be Friday).
