Twin Sister are about to release their debut full-length album, In Heaven on September 26. The band and Juno Download teamed up to create an interesting contest asking producers to remix Twin Sister’s new song, “Kimmi In A Rice Field.” The winner will recieve a bunch of prizes including the track to be released via Domino. In Heaven is also streaming over at Stereogum and is definitely worth the listen. (Via Juno Download)
Not only are Radiohead performing on Saturday Night Live’s season premiere on September 24 but they will also head to the set of The Colbert Report for a performance on September 26. They will play four songs off their most recent effort, The King of Limbs, as well as the previously unreleased song, “The Daily Mail.” Stephen Colbert made a statement saying, “I look forward to meeting the Radioheads and leveraging their anti-corporate indie cred to raise brand awareness for my sponsors.” (Via Consequence of Sound)
Wesley Eisold is the frontman for Cold Cave but before Cold Cave there was American Nightmare. The band, who later changed their name to Give Up The Ghost, released two LPs and two EPs about ten years ago. Bridge Nine Records is working on reissuing those two EPs and putting them into one twelve inch entitled, Year One. There’s no definite release date as of yet, but it should be out soon.

Canadian rock band C’mon have decided to break up after nine years together. They will perform their last eight shows in various cities across Ontario and Quebec, including an invite-only live recording session in Toronto, which you can win tickets to over at C’mon’s website. They’re also giving away a free seven-inch to the first 40 people at each of their shows, which features the first and last songs they recorded. (Via Exclaim)
Another band beef has surfaced, this one being between The Drums and Kings of Leon who recently toured together. In reference to KOL, The Drums’ frontman Jonathan Pierce said, “I would advise them to split up and stop making music…I don’t think they’re really helping anybody – they’ve never made a song that’s really touched me in any way.” He added that the “‘Sex On Fire’ song is one of the worst songs I’ve heard in my life.” Perhaps Pierce is just looking out for the band, as he added that he doesn’t think Jared Followill enjoys being in the band and playing that kind of music. Pierce obviously caught on to something because Kings of Leon recently cancelled their tour due to Caleb Followill being diagnosed with exhaustion and vocal problems. (Via NME)Tweet
