A new update in the public he said/he said among the members of Blink-182: He — Delonge, that is — says despite what Mark Hoppus and Travis Barker are saying, he “never planned on leaving the band.” READ FULL STORY

Before he was runner-up on the third season of The Voice, Scottish vocalist Terry McDermott played in a group called Lotus Crush with two former members of multiplatinum grunge band Candlebox. Recently they got the band back together, and in the spring they’ll put out their second LP, Rabbit Hole. In the lead-up to its release, the group recruited The Outsiders star C. Thomas Howell for the video for the album’s lead single “Hearts and Minds,” which takes the form of a surprisingly intense military mini-drama.
Made Violent hail from Buffalo, New York—but the band’s snotty snarl and bubblegum hooks are straight London, England. Their razor-sharp new single “Two Tone Hair” should appeal to fans of the Supergrass end of the Britpop spectrum, or really anyone who likes hearing a bunch of young people enthusiastically beating the crap out of super catchy pop songs.
The song will appear, alongside the breakout track “Wasted Days,” on their five-song self-titled debut EP dropping Feb. 24 on Startime International/Columbia.
Anyone who’s spent enough time at clubs or industry parties is familiar with the phenomenon of the celebrity DJ, where famous people are paid a lot of money to basically play songs off their phone and pose for Instagram photos. Elijah Wood is certainly a celebrity, but with his project Wooden Wisdom, a partnership with former indie label guy Zach Cowie (a.k.a. Turquoise Wisdom), he proves he’s a legit disc jockey—they spin vinyl, navigate a broad range of sounds from acid rock to African funk, and can actually get a crowd energized for reasons other than sharing a room with a famous person.
Recently Wood and Cowie took their records on the road for a full-on Wooden Wisdom tour. Before their gig at Brooklyn Bowl, they sat down with EW to talk about their vinyl fetishes and what’s so great about the possibility of totally screwing up a set.
With its buttery horn arrangements, funky guitar licks, and lead singer Kam Franklin’s bubbly vocals, “Make Some Room,” the catchy new single from 10-piece Houston soul revival group The Suffers, sounds like it stepped straight out of the ’70s soul-pop movement that produced Honey Cone. The video, directed by Joseph Graham, follows the song’s quirky romantic sensibility by stepping inside Franklin’s crushed-out daydreams about several different guys who maybe aren’t the best choices for growing old with.
Stone Jack Jones has had several close brushes with death, which might explain why his spare, folk-inflected country songs sound so intensely haunted. On Mar. 17, the Western Vinyl label will release his excellent second LP, Love & Torture, featuring contributions from members of alt-country favorites Lambchop and legendary country singer-songwriter Patty Griffin, who adds vocals to the spectral standout track “Shine.”
So far, the Fifty Shades of Grey soundtrack is shaping up to be as moody as Mr. Grey himself. Following Ellie Goulding’s music video release for “Love Me Like You Do,” as well as The Weeknd’s “Earned It,” Sia has released her addition to the soundtrack: an emotional ballad titled “Salted Wound.”
With lyrics like “don’t break,” “you’ll pull through it,” and “She will see that you’re a good man,” it seems “Salted Wound” is written for the lesser-seen side of Christian Grey—the side that just wants to be loved.
Grammy-winning artist Christina Aguilera is the latest performer to join the lineup for the 64th NBA All-Star Game on Feb. 15 at Madison Square Garden.
The Voice coach will perform a New York-themed medley during player announcements and will also be joined by The Rockettes. Aguilera is the second pop star to be added to the roster; Ariana Grande is already set to perform during the halftime show. READ FULL STORY
Chris Brown’s Between the Sheets Tour has been postponed because he has to finish up some court-mandated community service, the singer wrote on his Instagram Monday evening.
“The judge would not sign off on my travel to do the tour until I finish these last 100 hours of community service,” Brown wrote. “I promise that I am busting my ass doing it everyday until it’s complete. This is the most disappointing news I’ve gotten in a while.” READ FULL STORY
