Hip-hop’s hottest new superstar, Fetty Wap unveiled the cover of his self-titled full length debut, FETTY WAP
[ RGFProductions/300 Entertainment ]
The highly anticipated album officially arrives in stores and at all digital retailers on Friday, September 25, 2015 in both a 17-track standard format and 20-track deluxe edition.
The New Jersey multiplatinum rapper continuously shows immense love for where he came from. Hip-hop’s hottest new superstar, Fetty Wap personally unveiled the cover of his self-titled full length debut, FETTY WAP on stage at the One Hell of a Nite Tour ’s New Jersey stop at PNC Bank Arts Center in Holmdel. In addition to revealing the cover exclusively for the NJ crowd, he will deliver a free concert for his high school, Eastside High—after which he received the key to the city from the mayor.
It’s a busy time for Fetty Wap . He was up for two MTV Video Music Awards including “Artist To Watch” and “ Best Hip Hop Video” for his hit single, “Trap Queen . On the night he performed his hit single ‘Trap Queen’ and walked away with ‘Artist To Watch’ award. This month, Fetty made Billboard history, landing four songs in the Top 10 of the Hot Rap Songs Chart—namely “Again” at #8, “679” feat. Remy Boyz at #5, “My Way” feat. Monty at #3, and the ubiquitous “Trap Queen” at #2. This achievement solidified him as the “first artist in the chart’s 26year existence to chart his first four entries in the top 10 simultaneously.” The single ‘Trap Queen’ has remained in the Irish Top 30 singles chart for over 10 weeks now.
He continues to both smash boundaries and break records. Fetty stands out as the “first artist since Eminem to land 3 songs in the Top 20 of the Billboard Hot 100” and the “first artist to take 3 spots on the Shazam Global 200 Chart . ” He’s rising equally quickly on Pandora where he’s reached over 27 million unique listeners in just 90 days with the “fastest rising number of stations.” “Trap Queen” recently earned a Triple-platinum certification from the RIAA for digital sales in excess of 3 million, and “679” went gold. He graced the cover of XXL as part of 2015’s prestigious “Freshmen Class” issue and received a BET Award nomination. He’s taken over television, performing at the MTV Movie Awards, on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon with The Roots, Jimmy Kimmel LIVE , at the BET Awards , and more.
Fetty Wap known for sharing his love about his ride or die chick on his breakout hit “Trap Queen,” his hustle never stops. Willie Maxwell II hails from New Jersey, like Redman and Joe Budden, calling home to a city called Paterson. The rapper explains it was difficult growing up there, specifically pointing out that “everybody is trying to make it out.” As he adjusts to the attention after blowing up from “Trap Queen” in 2014, his mission in hip-hop isn’t to become more famous, but to use his fortunes to help his community rise above their hardships.
Fetty Wap’s profile rose when he earned co-signs from stars like Trey Songz, Rihanna and Kanye West. In February, Fetty Wap was the surprise guest for West’s Roc City Classic show. “I just turned up. That’s all I can remember,” he says. “I’m just mad appreciative. It’s just a big grateful, feeling that’s just one way of putting it.” Since then, Fetty Wap has been featured in Billboard, Complex and nominated for the 2015 XXL Freshman Class, a coveted list of the next wave of rap stars. He’s also used the bigger platform to introduce his crew Remy Boyz 1738, consisting of up-and-coming rappers Montana Buckz and P Dice. With his growing success, he isn’t letting his condition (his left eye was lost to congenital glaucoma when he was a child) get in the way of chasing his dreams.

SUEDE RELEASE THEIR STUNNING NEW ALBUM NIGHT THOUGHTS ON JANUARY 22, 2016
THE ALBUM IS ACCOMPANIED BY A FEATURE FILM DIRECTED BY ACCLAIMED PHOTOGRAPHER ROGER SARGENT, WHICH WILL BE RELEASED ON DVD AS PART OF A SPECIAL ALBUM PACKAGE.
THE BAND WILL PREMIERE BOTH THE FILM AND THE ALBUM WITH TWO DATES AT LONDON’S ROUNDHOUSE ON NOVEMBER 13TH AND 14TH WHEN THEY PLAY THE ENTIRE ALBUM FROM START TO FINISH AGAINST THE BACKDROP OF THE FILM. THIS WILL BE THE GLOBAL PREMIERE OF BOTH FILM AND ALBUM.
Suede will release their brand new studio album Night Thoughts on January 22nd . The album, which features a full string section, was produced by long-time Suede collaborator Ed Buller. It was recorded at SARM studios in London and ICP in Brussels.
Night Thoughts, which also has an accompanying film directed by Roger Sargent, will be available as CD, CD+DVD, special edition CD/DVD hardback bookset and 180g double gatefold LP (+ download code).
Pre-Order here – http://suede.tmstor.es
The album will be premiered in two performances at London’s Roundhouse on November 13 and 14 where the group will play the album in its entirety whilst the film is shown behind them.
On directing the film for Suede, Roger Sargent said:
“Suede and I have crossed paths a few times over the years. I sneaked onstage for their ‘93 Glastonbury show to get photos for NME… more recently I was asked directly to do some of the photography for the last album.
I was asked to pitch an idea for this film project… I really had no idea what they were wanting or expecting so I tried to write in the least self-conscious way possible. The record deals with a lot of familial themes — life, death, love, anguish and despair; themes that are expanded upon in its visual companion, providing a study of how those elements affect the human psyche. It resonated with me for many reasons, not least because my mother passed away a few days after I started writing a story for the film. The film starts with a man drowning in the waters of a deserted beach at night, as he fights for life, his mind plays out the events that lead him to be there.”

Praise for Suede’s last album Bloodsports:
‘Proves they are still burning bright’ – Sunday Times
‘Twenty years on, Suede are still jumping barriers’ – The Guardian
‘A galvanising return’ – Mojo
‘Suede are still capable of taking you over’ – Q
ALL TVVINS NEW SINGLE ‘DARKEST OCEAN’ IS OUT NOW!!
“In the same radio-friendly alternative-pop bracket as Haim, and rings with the same kind of ambition” – NME
“A pop cracker, all spiky guitars, shimmering synths and kiss-off lyrics.” – The Sunday Times Culture
“A thrilling, driving tune that recalls nothing less than early Bloc Party.” – XFM, Record of the Week
“All pounding, driving rhythms, flashes of synths and Editors-style post-punk guitars.” – Shortlist
ALL TVVINS’ first two singles ‘Thank You’ and ‘Too Young To Live’ prompted glowing comparisons with the likes of Haim, Bloc Party and Editors. The Irish duo have now released the new track ‘Darkest Ocean’ and have also confirmed numerous live shows throughout the coming months.
Produced by Matt Schwartz, ‘Darkest Ocean’ highlights ALL TVVINS’ strength in blending immediate pop hooks with driving, 80s-tinged percussion and alt-rock influences. ‘Darkest Ocean’ is available at iTunes and Spotify.
ALL TVVINS consists of two multi-instrumentalists in the shape of Conor Adams (primarily vocals and bass) and Lar Kaye (guitars), who first met on the Dublin underground scene and started working together in the summer of 2013.
Their collision of disparate influences results in a sound akin to a melting point of TV On The Radio’s art-pop twists with the leftfield psychedelic excursions of Animal Collective. Even just a snapshot of their songbook demonstrates an admirable disregard for conventional genre boundaries.
Having previously supported Arcade Fire, The Pixies and Jungle, and earned the respect of new wave pioneers Blondie following a set at Electric Picnic, ALL TVVINS’ summer festival touring has already included Pukkelpop, Dot To Dot and Field Day, as well as the VICE house party.
Their next run of touring includes Bestival, headline dates in Europe, a tour as support to Metric and their biggest headline show to date at Dublin’s Academy:
12th – Bestival
20th – Germany, Berlin, Privatclub
21st – Germany, Frankfurt, Nachtelben
22nd – Germany, Cologne, Studio 672
24th – Netherlands, Amsterdam, Paradiso Bitterzoet
26th – Germany, Hamburg, Reeperbahn Festival
October – as support to Metric
7th – Bristol, O2 Academy
8th – Birmingham, Institute
9th – Manchester, Ritz
11th – Glasgow, O2 ABC
12th – Oxford, O2 Academy
14th – London, Forum
15th – France, Paris, Bataclan
20th – Dublin, Academy (headline show)
THE DEAD WEATHER RETURN WITH DODGE AND BURN ACCLAIMED ROCK BAND UNVEIL THIRD ALBUM ARRIVING FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 25Th
FIRST OFFICIAL SINGLE “I FEEL LOVE (EVERY MILLION MILES)” VIDEO PREMIERE AND STREAM AVAILABLE NOW EXCLUSIVELY ON TIDAL
PRE-ORDERS BEGIN FRIDAY, AUGUST 21ST, WITH “I FEEL LOVE (EVERY MILLION MILES)” AS INSTANT GRAT
Third Man recording group The Dead Weather — Jack White, Alison Mosshart, Dean Fertita and Jack Lawrence — has announced the release of their long anticipated new album. DODGE AND BURN – the band’s third album and first full-length release in five years – will be available everywhere on Friday, September 25th. The album will be available for pre-order worldwide beginning this Friday, August 21st, with digital pre-orders receiving an instant download of the album’s electrifying new single, “I Feel Love (Every Million Miles).”
Released today, the brand new single, “I Feel Love (Every Million Miles),” is streaming now exclusively via global music and entertainment platform, TIDAL. The Dead Weather has also premiered the ferociously compelling Ian & Cooper-directed video for “I Feel Love (Every Million Miles).” Watch a teaser HERE and view the entire video via TIDAL http://smarturl.it/IFeelLoveVideoTidal
Recorded in Nashville during breaks in each member’s ever-busy schedules, DODGE AND BURN was heralded back in October 2013 as the band and Third Man Records announced an innovative long-term plan that would see a series of Dead Weather 7-inch singles released in the year and a half leading up the album’s release. On July 6, 2015, DODGE AND BURN was officially announced along with Third Man Records’ Vault Package #25 featuring the only limited edition version of the new album, the only physical version of new single “I Feel Love (Every Million Miles),” and more. The Dead Weather have now unveiled the complete track list for DODGE AND BURN, which features the four previously released Vault tracks remixed and remastered and eight new songs:
I Feel Love (Every Million Miles)
Let Me Through
Three Dollar Hat
Lose The Right
Cop and Go
The Dead Weather first united after Alison Mosshart’s band The Kills supported Jack White and Jack Lawrence’s band The Raconteurs on a string of North American dates. The trio followed the tour with a few informal recording sessions at White’s famed Third Man studio, soon augmented by Raconteurs collaborator/Queens of the Stone Age multi-instrumentalist Dean Fertita. The result proved extraordinary – The Dead Weather’s debut album, “HOREHOUND,” arrived in July 2009 to worldwide critical acclaim and a top 10 Billboard 200 chart debut. The four musicians celebrated the release with a 23-date North American tour before reconvening at Third Man in December for three further weeks of writing and recording.
Released less than a year after their debut, “SEA OF COWARDS” made it abundantly clear The Dead Weather had become more than a side project — White, Mosshart, Lawrence, and Fertita were now a band. Ultimately named among the top 15 on Rolling Stone’s “30 Best Albums of 2010,” “SEA OF COWARDS” drew rave reviews for its aggressive songcraft and overwhelming intensity, as did a worldwide tour highlighted by sold out headline dates and showstopping appearances at such legendary festivals as Coachella, Glastonbury, and the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival.
Since then, The Dead Weather collective has remained busy as ever, constantly adding new milestones to their already-illustrious résumés. Born as a one-off collaboration between friends and tourmates, The Dead Weather has since evolved into one of the most vital and provocative bands in contemporary rock ‘n’ roll and DODGE AND BURN sees The Dead Weather pushing their creative line of attack to its very limits.

Following his #1 worldwide hit ‘See You Again’ with Wiz Kahlifa, Charlie Puth is back with his new smash hit, ‘Marvin Gaye’, the track has already climbing the singles and airplay charts in the US and is out today in Ireland .
The video has already amassed over 30m views on Youtube and nearly 40 Million streams on Spotify. The New Jersey-based singer/songwriter/producer has already been on tour with Meghan in the US. Charlie Puth first attracted national notice when his YouTube cover version of Adele’s “Someone Like You” caught the ear of Ellen DeGeneres, who invited Puth to perform on her nationally syndicated show before signing him to a development deal with her eleveneleven record label.
The young artist has since found himself among modern pop’s most in-demand co-writers and producers, with recent credits including tracks by Pitbull, Jason Derulo, and Songbook Entertainment/Atlantic’s own Trey Songz.A New Jersey native and Berklee College of Music graduate, Puth – who makes a surprise cameo in Meghan Trainor’s smash “Dear Future Husband” companion video – is currently hard at work writing and recording his Atlantic Records debut EP.

SILVERSUN PICKUPS TURN ON “NIGHTLIGHT” RADIANT NEW SINGLE AND EXTENDED VIDEO BOTH UNVEILED THURSDAY, AUGUST 6th
HALLUCINATORY MUSIC FILM WRITTEN AND DIRECTED BY MARK PELLINGTON PREMIERES AT SILVERSUNPICKUPS.COM
“NIGHTLIGHT” HERALDS MODERN ROCK ICONS’ EAGERLY AWAITED NEW ALBUM, TO BE RELEASED VIA BAND’S OWN NEW MACHINE RECORDINGS
FULL-LENGTH EPISODE OF DIRECTV’S GUITAR CENTER SESSIONS SET TO DEBUT ON FRIDAY, AUGUST 7TH
BETTER NATURE ARRIVES EVERYWHERE ON SEPTEMBER 25TH
Silversun Pickups will herald their much-anticipated fourth studio album with an array of high profile activity. BETTER NATURE will be released September 25th via the band’s own New Machine Recordings.
BETTER NATURE is preceded by the incandescent new single, “Nightlight,” debuting Thursday August 6th. “Nightlight” also arrives accompanied by a hallucinatory music film, written and directed by legendary filmmaker Mark Pellington (Foo Fighters, Bruce Springsteen, Pearl Jam). The extended video – produced by Braxton Pope (Passion Pit, MGMT) and featuring Meg Steedle (Boardwalk Empire, The Mysteries of Laura) – builds upon the track’s resonant emotional and sonic core to explore the darker recesses of one young woman’s subconscious, a fever dream of guilt, desire, and identity. “Nightlight” is now available to watch at silversunpickups.com and YouTube.
As if all that weren’t enough, August 7th will see the debut broadcast of Silversun Pickups’ full-length appearance on DIRECTV’s Guitar Center Sessions. The all-new episode sees host Nic Harcourt sitting down with the band to discuss their formation, creative process, and what’s next for the band’s future. The episode is highlighted by exclusive performances from Silversun Pickups’ recent set at the world-famous Guitar Center Hollywood, including such iconic classics as “Lazy Eye,” and “Panic Switch,” and also features the first live performance of “Nightlight.” Guitar Center Sessions premieres Friday, August 7th at 9 pm ET on DIRECTV Audience Channel 239 (check local listings); exclusive clips – including a special behind-the-scenes featurette – can be viewed now at sessions.guitarcenter.com.
BETTER NATURE is available now for pre-order in a variety of formats, including a limited edition signed 2 disc 180g vinyl (black) bundle, signed handwritten lyric sheets, art proofs, exclusive T-shirt, and customized SSPU nightlight. For details, please visit silversunpickups.com
Silversun Pickups’ first new album in more than three years, BETTER NATURE sees the Silverlake, CA-based band partnering once again with producer Jacknife Lee (U2, Two Door Cinema Club, Crystal Castles), with whom they so successfully collaborated on 2012’s visionary NECK OF THE WOODS. Songs like “Friendly Fires” and “Cradle (Better Nature)” were created and crafted in Lee’s Topanga studio, the band building out organically from Silversun Pickups singer/guitarist Aubert’s spare songwriting demos. The result is fluid and freewheeling, “oozy,” in Aubert’s words, with heavily cranked guitars, propulsive rhythms, and seemingly infinite textures.
GRAMMY® Award-winning mix engineer Alan Moulder (My Bloody Valentine, Nine Inch Nails, Royal Blood) brings maximum sonic power to the proceedings, but at the album’s beating heart is Silversun Pickups’ remarkably intuitive interplay, as ever providing panoramic musical counterpoint to Aubert’s incisive, increasingly self-exploratory lyricism. Richer, warmer, and more evocative than anything in their prior canon, BETTER NATURE is Silversun Pickups’ most human music thus far.
“This album is like its own quantum universe,” Aubert says. “It’s kind of unstable.”
Silversun Pickups will celebrate BETTER NATURE with an epic North American tour to be unveiled soon. In the meantime, the band will make a number of special showcase appearances, beginning with a headline performance at FM 94.9’s Independence Jam, set for September 12th at Oceanside, CA’s Junior Seau Pier Amphitheatre. For complete details and ticket availability, please visit silversunpickups.com/tour.
BETTER NATURE marks the debut release from Silversun Pickups’ own New Machine Recordings. The independent label takes its name from the PIKUL favorite, “…All The Go Inbetweens.”
* * * * *
Silversun Pickups is among the most dynamic and creative rock bands of the contemporary era, hailed far and wide for their inimitable merging of ethereal melodies and pure sonic force. From the opening indie rock salvo of 2005’s PIKUL EP to 2012’s far-reaching NECK OF THE WOODS, each successive release has seen the Silverlake, CA-based band boldly venture into uncharted terrain, bravely pushing their imagination and ability towards new and surprising summits. Ambitious and anthemic, tracks like “Panic Switch” and “Lazy Eye” have proven modern classics, a guarantee of rare danger and invention amidst the anodyne dross of post-millennial rock. What’s more, the indefatigable quartet have made it their mission to bring their unique music to the people, touring the planet nearly non-stop to reach a devoted and ever-growing international fan following.

I wish that I could say that I was in a “better place” when I found out the news. It would make for a far more polished and respectable story.
But I think back to that night: praying on the floor at 2am as Tricia went to the bathroom to take the pregnancy test I’d just purchased from Walgreens.
I was scared. Scared to start working on new music. Scared of trying again and failing. Scared of the process of staring at myself through a page and seeing someone that I wasn’t proud of.
Someone that I didn’t like. Someone that wasn’t ready to be a dad.
I’ve always had some make-believe image in my head of who I would be as a father.
I held on to clear expectations of where I wanted be in my career, my age, my level of self-care, and my maturity.
I basically assumed that I’d have it all together. But in actuality the hypothetical “dad” version of me looked completely different than the man whose heart was beating out of his chest on the carpet, praying to a god or spirit I hadn’t talked to in months.
When Tricia walked out of the bathroom, I knew. And I knew I had to change.
5 months later we were recording in a remote cabin away from the density that is Seattle.
I was finally having fun in the studio for the first time in years. Songs were getting made, finally.
I was going back to the city once a week to attend a birthing class with Tricia.
When I got back to the cabin the next day, Ryan had made a new beat that would eventually become the song you’re listening to.
Half of it is advice about growing up. The other half is trying to figure out how to grow up myself.
When you try to escape yourself, life has an interesting way of creating situations that force you to come back.
To look at who you are. This is why “Growing up” felt like the right song to re-emerge with. It’s where I’ve been the last year, through all the ups and downs.
We didn’t want to do a big campaign or anything over the top with this. We just wanted to put out good music, directly to the people that have been here since the beginning.
Thank you for your patience.
Hope you enjoy.
And if you’re wondering…
Our daughter, Sloane Ava Simone Haggerty was born 2 months ago on May 29th.
There is nothing like the joy and happiness that comes from bringing a baby into this universe.
She has filled my heart in ways that I never knew were possible.
She is the love of my life.
This song is for her.
