The Felice Brothers Announce 9/29 Show at Webster Hall

On the heels of two sold-out shows at Brooklyn, NY's The Bell House last week, The Felice Brothers have announced a September 29th headlining show at New York City's Webster Hall. Tickets for the show will go on-sale this Thursday, May 26th at 12pm ET. The band, whose live show was deemed "dark, rowdy, and mesmerizing" by SPIN, wrapped up their two-month spring tour with The Bell House shows and will continue playing throughout the summer, next up at Brighton Music Hall in Boston, MA, on Friday.

The Felice Brothers' fourth LP Celebration, Florida arrived in stores on May 10th via Fat Possum and continues to catch attention from press outlets including The A.V. Club, Billboard, Cowbell, Maxim, The New York Daily News, SPIN, Time Out New York, and The Wall Street Journal. The band's striking Ian Cinco-directed video for lead single "Ponzi" premiered on The A.V. Club earlier this month and can now also be seen and shared via here. A "Ponzi" song stream debuted on SPIN.com in late March and can be embedded using the below code.

Band Of Skulls Announce Select U.S. Dates

Southhampton, UK trio Band of Skulls are taking some time out from recording their second album to play select tour dates in the U.S. Currently recording at Rockfield Studios in Wales, the band will bring the driving guitar force and Wall of Sound harmonies of their live shows back to the states to play four shows in California before heading to Manchester, TN for their Thursday night slot at the Bonnaroo festival. They will be performing new songs at these shows along with favorites from their debut album 'Baby, Darling, Dollface, Honey.'

After spending two years touring in support of their debut album which was universally embraced by the U.S. press including SPIN (Best of Coachella), Rolling Stone (Best of SXSW) and Entertainment Weekly (Your Next Favorite Band) and culminated with a sold-out show at the Forum in London in late 2010, the band retreated to a studio in Norfolk UK to begin writing the follow-up. They returned to their home studio in Southampton to start the recording which they are now completing in Wales. The album will be mixed by Nick Launay (Grinderman, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Arcade Fire) and is scheduled for release in 2012. The album will be preceded by a single and EP released in late 2011.

UK's Everything Everything Spring/Summer Tour

Imagine a band who fuse three part harmonies with scalding post-punk guitars; floor-filling bass lines with syncopated rhythms and lyrics about everything from high-school massacres to R&B lotharios musing on their lot in a post-apocalyptic wilderness.

Not easy, is it? But then Everything Everything aren’t here to make life easy. They’re here to challenge every knee-jerk convention of indie rock and dance on the grave of pointless retrogression.

Chances are you’ve come across EE before. Chances are they perplexed, intrigued and if you’ve an ear for something special, they excited you. They first accosted our senses with ‘Suffragette Suffragette’ in Dec 08, followed by ‘Photoshop Handsome’ in May and third single ‘MY KZ, UR BF’ in Oct 09.

Having whipped up interest in all quarters via these low key releases (they’ve acquired fans ranging from Zane Lowe to 6Music’s Marc Riley, played two UK tours- including an advance sold out ICA show as an unsigned band, notched up a top spot on MTV2’s My Space Chart and been tipped by the likes of NME and Times Culture), they signed to Geffen Records in late 2009.

Schoolin is the first single to be taken from their recently completed, David Kosten co-produced debut album (title tbc) due for release in August. It seems set to be the breakthrough debut album of 2010.

Live, the band are poised to head out on the NME Radar tour co-headlining with Hurts followed by the main support slot on Delphic’s forthcoming dates in May before the summer festivals kick in. EE are so far confirmed to play Reading & Leeds, Glastonbury, Latitude (headlining the Lake Stage) and Bestival.
