"Full Flex Express" 2013, Jack White's Live Album and Underoath's Farewell Plans Lead This Week's News Roundup
Published Oct 13, 2012Once again, we're back with our news roundup to get you back up to date on any stories you might have missed this week. So if you're looking to fill in any possible blanks, have a look at just some of the stories that filled our news pages this week.
First up, we had Skrillex already confirming that his "Full Flex Express Tour" will be returning to Canada next year. There's no firm word yet as to who else will play the roaming fest, but if it's anything like last year's event, expect a pretty killer lineup. Also north of the border, the folks from Canrock Bible Have Not Been the Same announced a pretty awesome-looking comp, featuring unreleased tracks from Sloan, Skydiggers, the Pursuit of Happiness and tons more.
On the more international front, we had James Murphy finally setting the record straight on those rumours he was producing new albums by Arcade Fire and Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Jack White rolling out a live album, Jay Reatard's documentary getting a DVD release with a entire LP of rarities, and Rancid revealing a massive 7-inch box set for their 20th anniversary.
Also, Underoath detailed their farewell tour, which includes a Toronto stop, plus the band's anthology release. And in a pretty awesome pair-up, Dean Ween revealed he's working on a solo album with Josh Homme.
Finally, if you thought that the Beach Boys' controversy was over, it's not, as allegedly fired member Brian Wilson weighed in on the whole debacle.
