Sam Roberts Band Announces Upcoming New Album, ‘Collider’

Sam Roberts Band will release their new album, Collider on May 10th on Zoë/Rounder Records. Produced by Chicago-based producer Brian Deck (Modest Mouse / Iron and Wine,) Collider is the follow up to Roberts’ critically acclaimed album Love At The End Of The World.

“There’s got to be some desperation to your writing,” Roberts says. “You’ve got to maintain that feeling of survival – that you can lose your grip at any time. That’s where songs like these come from – from the realization that you can never figure it out completely, that your grip can never hold on forever. It’s always there; every time I sit down to write. That’s why the record is called what it is: ideas collide, especially when you’re making music. When you take things that are seemingly different, you can smash them together and create something new.”

Fans can check in with Sam Roberts Band on their Web site.

‘Who Took the Bomp? Le Tigre On Tour’ DVD Release on June 7th

Hell Yes. Oscilloscope Laboratories announced that it will release the highly anticipated film Who Took the Bomp? Le Tigre On Tour on DVD June 7.

The film, which is set to premiere at this year’s SXSW Film and Music Festival, follows electronic feminist icons Le Tigre on the This Island tour across four continents and ten countries. Supported by a community of devoted fans and led by outspoken Riot Grrrl pioneer Kathleen Hanna (Bikini Kill), Le Tigre confronts sexism and homophobia in the music industry while tearing up the stage via performance art poetics, no-holds-barred lyrics, punk rock ethos, and whip-smart wit in this edgy and entertaining documentary.

Directed by Kerthy Fix (Strange Powers: Stephin Merritt and the Magnetic Fields) Who Took the Bomp? Le Tigre On Tour features never before seen live performances, archival interviews, and revealing backstage footage with these trail-blazing artists.

Check out the film at SXSW and at MoMA.
