But, according to some sources, the band is planning a North American tour this spring. Also, Phoenix released a new music video for "Entertainment." And Noel Gallagher had some very nice things to say about David...

Should Beyonce and of Montreal Collaborate?

Day three (June 13) of the Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival might better be known as the day of The Boss. Although Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band started about 20 minutes late (sparking murmurs of another Kanye West fiasco), The Boss and the boys dominated the main stage for nearly three hours with hits like "Working On a Dream," "Youngstown" and...

thekillers-sl012509
The Killers are back with a new video off of their album, Day and Age. For their second single, the band has tapped Ray Tintori, the director who gave us MGMT's "Electric Feel." While that video was eccentric, "Spaceman," just comes off a little too odd. With a larger budget for this project, the money seemed to all go towards costumes and the result...

Blikk Fang have already posted a few songs on PureVolume here, and plan to release something with a few more in 2009. With all that eccentricity, we're guessing this project should be interesting.
