posted May 9, 2010

  • Brooklyn duo Class Actress recently debuted their video for "Adolescent Heart," directed by Jessica Lauretti.
  • Vancouver, British Columbia's Animal Names has saved the best for last. The band's final full-length, "Let It Been," has been digitally released on iTunes via its own label, Boat Dreams From The Hill. Stream it now at Punknews.org.
  • Check out The Lights' video for "New New," the first video from "Failed Graves," the band's third LP, out now on Wäntage USA. It was created by Jason Sievers with very old rubdown font (Futura Demi Bold) and clip art purchased from a now defunct Boise Blue in Idaho.
  • Check out footage from over the past year and a half from Band of Horses. Watch as the band spends time in the studio, hear Ben Bridwell explain the collective recording approach that was used on this record and see the band transcend through the final stages of recording process as they bring their latest material to light.
  • "Diamonds," the highly anticipated sophomore album from Enforcer will be released in Europe by Earache Records on May 24th and the rest of the world on Heavy Artillery Records on May 25th. Heavy Artillery is offering a free MP3 download of the track "Roll the Dice" on the band's Last.fm page.
