Metal legend’s mobile RPG game available in iOS and Android stores now!

The wait is over! Metal and RPG gaming fans can now download Iron Maiden: Legacy of the Beast, the action-packed, free-to-play mobile game where players take on the role of the band’s iconic mascot, Eddie. Available from today for iOS and Android devices, the teams at Nodding Frog, 50cc Games and Roadhouse Interactive have created a new and unique gaming experience in close collaboration with the band and its management team, Phantom Music Management.

The game is set in a visually stunning universe, comprised of an ever expanding series of worlds derived from Iron Maiden’s music and art. Fans of the band and RPG gamers alike will battle and strategize as Eddie and his allies. Inspired by themes from the songs, and set against a powerful and atmospheric Maiden soundtrack, players will journey on epic quests to reclaim the shards of Eddie’s shattered soul as he faces his most challenging adversaries.

James Hursthouse, CEO of Roadhouse Interactive comments, “As a lifelong Maiden fan, I am exceptionally proud of Legacy of the Beast and excited to launch it globally. It has been a privilege to work so closely with Maiden and their management. With this game I believe that we have created an outstanding, authentic RPG experience to appeal to all mobile gamers, including those discovering the band for the first time.”

Steve Harris, Bassist and founder member of Iron Maiden comments, “We’ve always wanted to make a quality Maiden mobile game as we think the combination of Eddie and the music is so well suited – and it’s a great way to get our music out to a new audience! When the opportunity arose to make a mobile game which our fans, along with hopefully a lot of the gaming community, can play pretty well anywhere in the world, and download for free at that, we jumped at it. The whole band visited Roadhouse while touring through Vancouver back in April and we were so impressed by the creativity, enthusiasm and passion of the team there. Visually, the worlds and character designs do us proud and the music just ties it all together.”

Llexi Leon, Interactive Director of Phantom Music Management adds, “Eddie is constantly evolving; he’s a globally recognizable character that resonates with fans of all ages, and has taken on a life of his own beyond the album covers where he first appeared. This game gives players a chance to step into Eddie’s world and experience an odyssey across space and time. In this incredible RPG adventure, we’re able to explore the origins of Eddie’s power and test the limit of his abilities, bringing new mechanics to the mobile RPG genre, and creating a truly unique gaming experience for everyone to enjoy.”

In Iron Maiden: Legacy of the Beast, players control Eddie’s destiny across a spectacularly diverse array of worlds by traveling through time in captivating 3D environments. Eddie appears in many forms, each a part of Iron Maiden’s rich history, and each with a set of special powers and abilities.

Players will amass an army of powerful allies to battle alongside Eddie and face the onslaught of foes hell-bent on destroying him. Legions of unrelenting enemies are commanded by the Agents of Control, including The Beast, The Wicker Man, Horus and The Axis General, all drawn from the expansive catalogue of Maiden’s albums and artwork.

The game offers over 40 different Talisman sets to choose from, which all add to characters’ vital abilities. With each battle, players will evolve their armies, take on ever-increasing challenges to reclaim the facets of Eddie’s soul, and ultimately defeat the Agents of Control.

Gameplay is enhanced by a blistering soundtrack that features songs spanning the band’s entire career. Players will hear rare, previously unheard live recordings of Iron Maiden classics adapted for the game under the close scrutiny of bassist and founding member Steve Harris.

The game is now available for free on Apple’s App Store and Google Play.

“We made this album at an important crossroads in our lives, and it was a dream come true to be able to work with Phil Ek up in Seattle and with Ryan down in LA. We’re extremely excited for the world to hear it!” offered singer/guitarist Christian Zucconi.

This fall, Grouplove will hit the road for their Big Mess World Tour.

Grouplove first came together in 2009 and were quickly hailed for their standout live performances, both as headliners and at such international festivals as Coachella, Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza, Outside Lands, Reading + Leeds Festivals, and Glastonbury.  A year after releasing a self-titled EP in 2010, the band returned with their debut full length “NEVER TRUST A HAPPY SONG” featuring a trio of breakout singles – “Colours,” “Itchin’ On A Photograph,” and  the RIAA-certified platinum hit “Tongue Tied” which spent 3 consecutive weeks at #1 on the Alternative radio chart. The quintet’s second full length album – 2013’s “SPREADING RUMOURS” – was met with a raft of acclaim from the likes of Rolling Stone, USA Today, Entertainment Weekly, Los Angeles Times, NYLON, and National Public Radio who called it “ludicrously easy to love.”  As with all of Grouplove’s recorded material, the collection was produced by the band’s own Ryan Rabin, and was highlighted by singles “Ways To Go” and “Shark Attack.”  In 2014, Grouplove contributed the original song “Let Me In” to  “The Fault in Our Stars – Music From the Motion Picture,” the musical companion to the blockbuster film based on The New York Times bestseller. That same year, the band was tapped to create the theme song to the Netflix Original Series “BoJack Horseman.” Last year, vocalist/keyboardist Hannah Hooper collaborated with Volcom for a Lady Grouplove capsule collection of clothing inspired by her personal style and artwork.

Grouplove is: Christian Zucconi (vocals, guitar), Hannah Hooper (vocals, keys), Andrew Wessen (guitar, vocals), Ryan Rabin (drums), and Daniel Gleason (bass).

Biffy Clyro // Animal Style Music Video

Biffy Clyro // Animal Style Music Video

Biffy Clyro follow 2013’s critically acclaimed #1 double-album ‘Opposites’ with their seventh studio album ‘Ellipsis’ which will be released on July 8th on Warner Bros. Records / 14th Floor Recordings. Pre-orders for the album are now open , with  ‘Wolves of Winter’ and ‘Animal Style’ aew now streaming and available as an instant grat tracks.


As is tradition, writing sessions for the album saw Biffy Clyro – Simon Neil (vocals/guitar) and the Johnston brothers James (bass) and Ben (drums) working in the intimate environment of their practice room. They then headed to Los Angeles for recording sessions with producer Rich Costey (Muse, My Chemical Romance, Sigur Ros).

Citing influences as diverse as Tears For Fears’ ‘Songs From The Big Chair’ album, DJ Arca and Deafheaven, Simon Neil has described ‘Ellipsis’ as “more of a punch to the nose than a big cuddle.” Lyrically, the album’s songs tackle personal issues with the idea of “fighting back” a recurring theme.

Such themes are also apparent in the album’s visceral first single ‘Wolves of Winter’ which captures Biffy Clyro’s famous blend of angular riffs, pummelling rhythms and strident hooks. Says Neil: “’Wolves of Winter’ is about us being wolves on a patch and if you come onto that patch, we’ll tear you limb-from-limb.”

An ‘Ellipsis’ (most commonly depicted as …) indicates a continuation: in this case, Biffy Clyro’s new body of work is an ongoing representation of everything that the band have stood for since first debuting in 2002 with the ‘Blackened Sky’ album.

‘Ellipsis’ will be available digitally and on CD as both standard and deluxe editions. In addition, a variety of vinyl formats will be issued together with a special D2C box set which will be available exclusively from

After playing their only show of 2015 shortly before midnight on New Year’s Eve at Edinburgh’s Hogmanay, Biffy Clyro recently announced that they’ll headline this summer’s Reading (August 28th) and Leeds Festivals (August 26th).
Biffy also play Belfast’s Belsonic on Saturday June 25th

Now Biffy Clyro can also announce details of their biggest Scottish show at Glasgow’s Bellahouston Park on August 27th. Part of this year’s Glasgow Summer Sessions, the 35,000 capacity show features special guests Fall Out Boy as well as more bands that will be announced in the coming weeks. Tickets go on sale from 9am on Wednesday March 23rd and will be available from and

‘Opposites’ saw Biffy Clyro flourish with their first #1 album and another Top 10 single with ‘Black Chandelier’. The band’s live shows soared to new heights with highlights including debut festival headline sets at Reading, Leeds, Radio 1’s Big Weekend, Isle of Wight and T in the Park; a triumphant sold-out UK arena tour; and extensive touring across six continents.



Neil Young Earth

Neil Young will release a new album, entitled EARTH, on June 17th via Reprise Records. The album features performances of songs from a range of Young’s albums, including last year’s The Monsanto Years, 1990’s Ragged Glory, and 1970’s After the Gold Rush. The audio was captured during Young’s 2015 tour with The Promise of the Real, fronted by Lukas Nelson (vocals/guitar) and Micah Nelson (guitar, vocals) – Willie Nelson’s sons. The tour included Young performing solo and with the band for a full electric show.

A new take on some of Young’s most beloved songs, EARTH features the live recordings, along with added musical overdubs, as well as sounds of the earth, such as city sounds like car horns, sounds of insects, and animal sounds from bears, birds, crickets, bees, horses, cows – creating a very strange, yet beautiful atmosphere.

“Ninety-eight uninterrupted minutes long, EARTH flows as a collection of 13 songs from throughout my life, songs I have written about living here on our planet together,” says Young. “Our animal kingdom is well represented in the audience as well, and the animals, insects, birds, and mammals actually take over the performances of the songs at times.”

Coming out on June 24th are two rare films – the critically acclaimed post-apocalyptic musical comedy Human Highway and the concert feature Rust Never Sleeps- for the first time on DVD and Blu Ray via Reprise Records. Neither film has been available or viewed in years. Human Highway is Young’s 1982 comedy starring Russ Tamblyn, Charlotte Stewart, Dean Stockwell, Dennis Hopper, and Devo, which has been digitally restored for the DVD and Blu Ray release. Rust Never Sleeps is the full-length feature about Young’s 1978 concert tour and includes such classic young Young’s most popular songs, showcasing classic hits such as “I Am a Child,” featuring Crazy Horse, “Cinnamon Girl,” “Like A Hurricane” and both the acoustic and electric versions of his

Revised track-listing for EARTH is as follows:

“Mother Earth” (from Ragged Glory)
“Seed Justice” (previously unreleased)
“My Country Home” (from Ragged Glory)
“The Monsanto Years” (from The Monsanto Years)
“Western Hero” (from Sleeps With Angels)
“Vampire Blues” (from On The Beach)

“Hippie Dream” (from Landing On Water)

“After The Gold Rush” (from After The Gold Rush)
“Human Highway” (from Comes a Time)

“Big Box” (from The Monsanto Years)

“People Want to Hear About Love” (from The Monsanto Years)
“Wolf Moon” (from The Monsanto Years)

“Love & Only Love” (from Ragged Glory)

The Staves Release 3-Track EP Sleeping In A Car

The Staves Release 3-Track EP Sleeping In A Car on May 13th


UK-based band’s 18-City North American tour begins June 3rd

“Ethereal, angelic, and otherworldly. They are simply astonishing.”—Stereogum

Nonesuch Records releases “Sleeping in a Car”, a three-song EP from the English trio The Staves, on May 13, 2016. The EP is the follow-up to the band’s 2015 Nonesuch debut If I Was, of which the New York Times said “the songs are illuminated from within,” and Magnet praised, “The perfection just goes on and on until you start to wonder: Are they human?” “Sleeping in a Car” was recorded in Eau Claire, WI, at Justin Vernon’s April Base studio and also at Urchin Studios in London. The Watford, England–based sisters—Emily (vocals, keyboards), Jessica (vocals, guitar, keyboards), and Camilla (vocals, guitar, ukulele) Staveley-Taylor—will embark on a 18-city North American tour beginning June 3. Stops include Minneapolis, Washington, Nashville, and New York, among others, along with the Firefly, Newport, and Eaux Claires festivals.

“Sleeping in a Car” is available to pre-order digitally from iTunes; physical CDs will be available exclusively at the Staves’ shows.

The sisters said of the EP, “These songs reflect the transient nature of travelling. Fleeting moments, like a slide show—reflections in car windows, streetlights passing in rhythm, stolen phone calls, late nights. Feelings of displacement and a disconnect— living in some sort of alternate state of reality. But underneath it all is the feeling of adventure and making your own rules and how dizzying and freeing that can be.”

The Staves released their first full-length album, Dead & Born & Grown, produced by Glyn and Ethan Johns, in 2012. The Sunday Times called it “a debut of stellar beauty and hidden depths.” The band then spent much of the next three years touring the world, including opening spots with the Civil Wars, Ben Howard, and Bon Iver.

During the Bon Iver run, the sisters formed a bond with Vernon, who invited them to visit April Base, where he ultimately produced If I Was. Following its release, The Staves performed at a string of international festivals, including Glastonbury and Eaux Claires, before joining Florence and the Machine’s sold-out UK arena tour. In addition to the North American dates, they play Guy Garvey’s Meltdown Festival in London this summer (June 14).

Pre-order the album here

Foy Vance has unveiled the video for “She Burns”, the lead track from his Gingerbread Man Records debut album The Wild Swan, to be released 13 May. Directed by Gus Black, the video was shot on location in Los Angeles, CA and stars actor/musician Lucy Hale from ABC Family/Netflix’s hit series ‘Pretty Little Liars’.

The second album to be released on Ed Sheeran’s new label Gingerbread Man Records, The Wild Swan was recorded in Nashville’s legendary Blackbird Studios and produced/mixed by GRAMMY Award-winner Jacquire King. Recording legend Elton John is the album’s Executive Producer, and Vance will be supporting Elton on his Wonderful Crazy Tour this summer. The Wild Swan is the follow up to Vance’s 2013 Glassnote Records release, Joy of Nothing, which won the inaugural Northern Ireland Music Prize that year.

With production inspired by one of Vance’s favourite albums, Tom Waits’ Mule Variations, the wonderfully natural sounding The Wild Swan offers ample evidence as to why Vance is so celebrated by his peers as a songwriter and lyricist. It opens with “Noam Chomsky Is A Soft Revolution”, a rock’n’blues roll-call of musical, philosophical, literary and polemical insurrectionists. It stops off with “Coco”, a tender, campfire song written for the daughter of good friend Courtney Cox (Coco is a friend of Vance’s own daughter, Ella). And it ends with a dash of uillean pipes and “The Wild Swans On The Lake”, a stop-you-in-your-tracks breath of Celtic balladry inspired by WB Yeats’ poem ‘The Wild Swans At Coole’. In between, Vance gets up close and personal on the hymnal “Burden” and the ancient-but-modern “Be Like You Belong”, his soulful rasp weaving through pedal-steel and simple piano chords.

Foy Vance live:
May 12 London, Hoxton Hall (SOLD OUT)
June 10 Lincolnshire Showground, Lincoln (supporting Elton John)
June 11 Grace Road, Leicestershire County Cricket Club, Leicester (supporting Elton John)
June 12 Longleat, Near Warminster, Wiltshire (supporting Elton John)

June 19 Exeter Westpoint (supporting Elton John)
June 25 Meadowbank Stadium, Edinburgh (supporting Elton John)
