Arcade Fire to Perform on Saturday Night Live Again!


The Arcade Fire has just released the information that they will be appearing on the infamous Saturday Night Live on Saturday, November 13th. Set your old school VCRs so you don’t miss it. Scarlett Johansson will be the host that night. SNL has been lacking on the ‘great’ musical guests this season (in our opinion), but the show has finally redeemed itself. What songs will the band play? Well that’s up in the air for now but here’s crossing our fingers for “Ready to Start.”

The Dears Preparing A New Album

Montreal rockers The Dears have announced that they are set to release a new album this February, called Degeneration Street.

The album will be the group’s fifth full-length and will be out Feb. 15th on Dangerbird Records. The album sees the group returning to the orchestral pop/rock that made them loved nationally. You can catch the first single off the record, called “Omega Dog”, performed live in Mexico City right here.

The band will be performing Degeneration Street live in Brooklyn for two nights in November. The band is doing it to raise money for War Child International, an organization that helps children who have seen the horrors of war. If this seems like a good cause (it is) and The Dears seem like a great band (they are), check them out…
