After a hugely successful 2011, Caveman continue their exciting rise in 2012 with a new tour including Europe, their first headlining gig at Bowery Ballrom and the proud news of Caveman signing to Fat Possum Records. In 2011, Caveman garnered praise for their debut album CoCo Beware from outlets like NPR, The New York Times, and Fader and for their big sounding, impressive and completely unforgettable live shows alike. NPR Music charted them as their #7 most favorite live show after seeing them at CMJ in October and named them “Discovery of 2011″ in their year-end edition of All Songs Considered.
Yelawolf is currently promoting his first record on Shady Records/Interscope, Radioactive. In the midst of a tour, he was in Santa Ana, CA last week for a performance. During his live show, it seems that an eager fan became too excited for anyone’s good. After asking the crowd if anyone liked Johnny Cash, someone got onto the stage and knocked the rapper down. Security was able to restrain the unruly audience member, but not before Yelawolf got a few punches in himself, much to the crowd’s delight. Upcoming tour dates are listed below. Also is the artist’s brand new music video, for “Let’s Roll”, with Kid Rock.

Joy Formidable, the indie rock trio from Ireland, have just released their new tour dates. Providing opening support will be either A Place to Bury Strangers, or Exit Music, depending on which location you see them at. Details are listed below:
Everyone’s favorite Radiohead will not only be playing Coachella fest, they will also be touring the West Coast. Here are the newest dates, with opening support provided by Other Lives. I find it interesting that everyone seemed to dislike their newest King Of Limbs record, yet these dates are selling out so fast. Hipster irony? These dates are near the Coachella ones, and you can probably expect many other bands following their footsteps soon. Since releasing its eighth studio album earlier this year, Radiohead’s been on a tear. For the first time in 11 years, the band played Saturday Night Live, opening the 37th season as the program’s musical guest. A string of New York appearances followed, including an appearance on the Colbert Report and two intimate shows at New York City’s Roseland Ballroom. Catch the SNL videos below.
Update: In some shows, the band has been sup rising and delighting fans by playing new songs. We attended the Dallas show on Monday night, and will be posting a review soon. We will also be seeing their live performance tonight in Austin also. They played a brand new song on Monday. We didn’t record the video, but it already has over 100,000 views in 24 hours! Make sure to surf past the tour dates to watch it.

Yes, you are indeed reading a new post from 2012, and yes, you are reading this correct. In perhaps the biggest rock/alternative music news of the new year, it has been confirmed that At The Drive-In will be reuniting after 11 years. The group went on an indefinite hiatus and of course later went on to form The Mars Volta, and Sparta. This has been officially confirmed by the band’s website, Twitter account, and how I first read about it, Alternative Press. And according to both YouTube and Prefix, Mars Volta is also prepping new material! Update: The guys have also just been confirmed to play at both of this year’s Coachella events!
If you have been waiting for Tool to go on tour again, or put out a new record, then your wishes might actually come true soon. Maynard James Keenan has recently just announced tour dates both for Tool and Puscifer. Tool is actually trying to put in some studio time and finally record new material. As you probably know or remember, their last effort 10,000 Days came out all the way back in 2006. They are still selling out tickets almost immediately after going on sale. Tickets first appeared online at TicketMaster’s website before vanishing then finally reappearing again. They last toured briefly in 2010. Puscifer will be touring in support of their latest effort, Conditions Of My Parole.
Providing opening support for this tour will be two different bands, Intronaut and YOB. Intronaut are California prog rockers, while YOB is a doom metal trio hailing from Eugene, OR. Intronaut have supported Mastodon, Helmet, and Animals As Leaders before. According to an interview with Lambgoat, they will be working on creating a new record immediately following the tour with Tool. YOB have played with Botch before, as well as Tool. YOB will continue their own headlining tour afterwards.
As we reported in early December, Three 6 Mafia member Juicy J has just signed a deal with Wiz Khalifa‘s new record label, Taylor Gang. Still receiving much deserved attention is his newest mixtape, Blue Dream & Lean, which I placed on my list of top 10 mixtapes of 2011. And to all those who say that stoners are lazy, they ain’t smoking this new strand. Juicy J release no less than 3 new videos in the past 2 days! Here are his brand new videos from that record, the first just released, “Lucky Charm“. It’s a very dark, beautiful, postmodern display of expression. At it’s the exact opposite of what you might expect him to do. It was created by Figvrati Films. The other 2 are “Deez Bitches Rollin‘” with Speak! and SpaceGhostPurrp, and yet another called “Countin Faces“.

Back in the day, when this place was crawling with forums and chats about random acts of music, we used to poll ourselves to see which release by an artist not only set them atop of the industry but stapled them in as musical gods.
Our focus this week is the widely respected Sigur Ros

Every Time I Die is one of the best new rock bands. The 5 piece from the East Coast started out based on the 2 Buckley brothers. They have been a rapidly growing fan base, have opened for Gwar, and were one of the first headlining bands announced for this summer’s upcoming Van’s Warped Tour. Their new record, Ex-Lives, will be out March 6th. This is the first single just released this week, “Underwater Bimbos From Outer Space“, and gives a glimpse of what to expect. It’s intensely visceral, happy Friday! Warning: this flirts with the borderline of being NSFW, so proceed with caution. PS–you can pre-order here.
