(Toronto, ON) – July 23, 2014 – Multi-Grammy Award winner “Weird Al” Yankovic’s 14th studio album, Mandatory Fun, debuts at #1 on the U.S. Billboard Top 200, Digital Albums and Comedy charts, selling just under 104,000 units in its first week. This marks a personal first week sales best and first #1 album debut for Yankovic in the U.S. The last time a comedy album topped the Billboard chart was 51 years ago, with Allan Sherman’s 1963 release My Son, the Nut. It is also the largest sales week for a comedy album since 1994. Mandatory Fun debuted at #3 on the Nielsen Soundscan Top 200 sales chart in Canada

On Spotify, Yankovic sets the US record for having the most tracks from one album in the viral top 10 at one time taking the first 4 spots. Additionally, Al saw an increase of 785% in streams across all his albums totaling 3.2 million streams including 2.1 million streams of Mandatory Fun. Yankovic topped Spotify’s Viral chart globally. 
 
Last Monday, Yankovic kicked off a massive week of promotion with the release of the first of 8 videos in 8 days. All 8 videos (“Tacky,” “Word Crimes,” “Foil,” “Handy,” “Sports Song,” “Lame Claim To Fame,” “First World Problems” and “Mission Statement”) have totaled over 46 million views combined in just one week. Yankovic teamed up with various production partners such as Nerdist Industries, CollegeHumor, Yahoo (Principato-Young Entertainment), Funny or Die and TruScribe, as well as talented auteurs like Liam Lynch, Jarrett Heather and Tim Thompson.
 
In the spirit of Mandatory Fun’s bid for world domination, the album peaked on iTunes at #1 in Australia and New Zealand and #3 in Canada and Sweden and has received critical acclaim from around the globe, including The Los Angeles Times which called the album “a stone cold masterpiece” and gave it four stars.  Bloomberg Businessweek declared “Weird Al is incredibly deft at recreating any popular music genre” and The Telegraph called Weird Al “one of the most enduring musical acts of our time.” 
 
“Weird Al” Yankovic is the biggest-selling comedy recording artist in history with over 12 million albums sold. Now in his fourth career decade, he has released 14 studio albums, won 3 Grammys (with 14 nominations) as well as countless awards and accolades for his classics such as “White & Nerdy,” “Eat It,” “Like a Surgeon,” “Fat,” “Smells Like Nirvana,” “Amish Paradise,” “The Saga Begins” and many more.

‘Wasted Love’ is also receiving early international radio support, with Radio 1’s Zane Lowe debuting the song as “Hottest Record in the World,” and SiriusXM’s Sr. Director of Programming, Geronimo, noting, “after one play, the song far exceeded any expectations…the early buzz on the song has been phenomenal.”

JAMES RETURN WITH STUNNING NEW ALBUM

‘LA PETITE MORT’ OUT SEPTEMBER 16TH IN NORTH AMERICA.

WATCH ‘MOVING ON’ HERE: http://t.ymlp320.net/uqyuqapaubwmbaoaqbakau/click.php

"There are precious few 32-year-old bands who still feel this fresh" - The Independent

"uplifting celebrations of lives well lived" - Uncut Magazine
 
 
(July 21, 2014)- UK’s finest Manchester band James are making a welcomed return with their impressive new album ‘La Petite Mort’, which hits stores nationwide and all digital platforms on September 16th. 

Formed in 1982 and first signed to the infamous Factory Records, James are, without doubt, one of the UK’s most influential Brit-pop bands of our time. With a prestigious career that spans over 30 years and includes 12 studio albums and 12 millions records sold worldwide, James hold countless notable musicians as fans who speak highly of the their artistry and songwriting, including Michael Stipe, Chris Martin, Noel Gallagher and Arcade Fire's Richard Reed Parry who claims their 1994 release Wah Wah "changed how I listened to music. And expanded my idea of what collective/group artistic processes could be."
 
The band's critically acclaimed and Brian Eno produced album "Laid" was their highest charting release in the U.S. debuting in the Billboard Top 200 in 1993, since then they have gone onto release classic hits such as ‘Born of Frustration’, ‘Laid’, 'Sit Down’, ‘Say Something’, ‘She’s A Star’, ‘Sometimes’, ‘Come Home’ and ‘Getting Away With It (All Messed Up)’, and continue to write astoundingly great music to this day.

  The band's stunning new album (already hailed as one of the "Best Albums of 2014" so far by The Guardian) ‘La Petite Mort’ was produced by Max Dingel (Killers, Muse, White Lies) and was written by the band, with chief lyricist and front-man Tim Booth’s captivating and heartfelt lyrics, ranking this new full-length as one of their finest in their impressive 30 year career.

Despite the album’s cheerful and uplifting sound, ‘La Petite Mort’ was recorded in the months following the passing of Tim Booth’s mother and his best friend. Many of the songs deal with facing mortality (hence the album title), but in true James form -- much like some of the greatest Manchester story-tellers (Morrissey, Guy Garvey, Ian Brown, Richard Ashcroft) -- they also deal with the realness of life (and death), with lyrical poignancy, wit and a charm that has become their trademark.

The current lead single ‘Moving On’ is a true testament to the band's ability to continually create outstanding music. The simple but incredibly moving animated short film that serves as the single's video was created by esteemed BAFTA award-winning animator and director Ainslee Henderson. “My Mother's death was clearly a birth of some kind and that description caught Ainslie's imagination” explains Booth. Watch the video here: http://t.ymlp320.net/uqyuqapaubwmbaoaqbakau/click.php.

Famed for their live performances, the band recently embarked on an extensive European tour, performing at all the leading festivals and kicked things off with a huge homecoming gig at Manchester's Summer in the City this week.
 
James are: Tim Booth (vocals), Jim Glennie (bass), Larry Gott (guitars), Saul Davies (guitar, violin), Mark Hunter (keyboards), David Baynton-Power (drums) and Andy Diagram (trumpet).

ALBUM DEBUTS TOP TEN BILLBOARD IN THE U.S.
 
Wednesday July 16th, 2014, Toronto,ON - Judas Priest's 17th studio effort overall, Redeemer of Souls, debuts at #5 on the Nielsen Soundscan Canada Top Albums chart - it is the band’s highest chart-peaking album and first top five debut in the Canadian Nielsen Soundscan era. The album is also set to debut in the US on the Billboard 200 charts at #6, which is the highest US album chart debut of the legendary British band's career.
 
And the album reviews have been some of the best of Priest's entire career as well, including Rolling Stone declaring "'Redeemer' is proof that Priest can still call themselves metal's defenders of the faith," while All Music Guide stated Redeemer of Souls is also the loosest (attitude-wise), leanest (arrangement-wise), and most confident-sounding collection of new material the band has released in ages."
 
It was also recently announced that Priest (singer Rob Halford, guitarists Glenn Tipton and Richie Faulkner, bassist Ian Hill, and drummer Scott Travis) will be hitting the road this fall, along with special guests Steel Panther.

SINGLE “CHANDELIER” PEAKED AT #1 ON ITUNES SINGLES CHART IN 31 COUNTRIES
THE VIDEO FOR “CHANDELIER” BOASTS OVER 64 MILLION VIEWS TO DATE 

(July 16, 2014) Singer/songwriter/producer/massive hit maker Sia’s album 1000 FORMS OF FEAR (RCA Records/Monkey Puzzle Records) debuts today at #1 on the Billboard Top 200 Chart and #1 on Canada’s Nielsen SoundScan Top Albums Chart, her first ever  #1 chart debuting album, which features her massive breakthrough single “Chandelier.” http://smarturl.it/ChandelierVideo  In addition, 1000 FORMS OF FEAR peaked at #1 on the iTunes Album Chart in 47 countries across the globe including the US, UK, Canada, Germany, France, Italy, Spain, and more. Her chart-topping single “Chandelier” peaked at #1 on the iTunes singles chart in over 31 countries and debuted at #1 on Spotify’s Top Viral Chart, and has been streamed over 8 million times, to date. 

“Chandelier,” the debut and current single from 1000 FORMS OF FEAR was written by Sia and Jesse Shatkin and produced by her longtime collaborator Greg Kurstin, along with Shatkin, and its video has exploded online with over 64 million views since its release, and stars an incredibly compelling dance performance by Maddie Zeigler (age 11) of the Lifetime Television show Dance Moms. The video was directed by Sia and Daniel Askill and shot in Los Angeles at the old Herald Examiner building in downtown LA. WATCH THE VIDEO HERE. Sia - Chandelier (Official Video)

Raves Pitchfork of the video and song: “Sia’s voice blasts off, the swelling strings propelling her past her contemporaries in the inspirational-pop stratosphere. It’s a jaw-dropping vocal performance that’s enough to convince you she could have a stadium-touring career of her own. The video is filled with the same irrepressible spirit that colors this song.” Time Magazine calls “Chandelier” a contender for “song of the summer” and “the year’s most sobering party anthem…a disarming, unforgettable listen.”
1000 FORMS OF FEAR was produced by Greg Kurstin and recorded at Echo Studio in Los Angeles. Rolling Stone raved of 1000 FORMS OF FEAR in a four star review: “You can’t see what Sia looks like in the cover art, but she sounds like a superstar.”  The NY Times Magazine in a revealing profile titles her “the Socially Phobic Pop Star” and the “one woman hit-factory.” “Sia’s gigantic voice full of emotion and empathy make every sentiment sound, well, like going from victim to victory.”  And Stereogum writes “Sia is going for full-on global stardom on… 1000 Forms Of Fear, and it appears to be within her grasp.”  USA Today continues: “On Fear, she uses her advantage as a multitalented artist to express human vulnerability to haunting effect.”

An astonishingly prolific hit maker and songwriter, Sia has penned several monster hits over the last few years. In 2013 alone, she’s crafted songs for pop icons including Rihanna (“Diamonds”), Katy Perry (“Double Rainbow”), Britney Spears (“Perfume”), Beyoncé (“Pretty Hurts”) and Celine Dion, as well as working with Kylie Minogue, Angel Haze, and executive producing label mate Brooke Candy’s forthcoming album and EP Opulence. Sia is also the featured vocalist on some of the most massive hits she has written for others including “Titanium” with David Guetta, “Beautiful Pain” with Eminem, and “Wild Ones” with Flo Rida. 

Sia launched #siaselfie campaign where fans can upload their own photo and have their face within Sia’s iconic blonde bob. Visit http://www.siaselfie.com.

(July 22, 2014) With tickets nearly sold out at NYC’s Terminal 5, LA’s Fonda Theatre and Chicago’s Metro, St. Lucia has announced additional dates for their “The Night Comes Again Tour” this fall— including Toronto, Seattle, Denver and Detroit. 

In addition, Robert Delong and Vacationer have been added as support on select dates this fall, joining previously announced support acts HAERTS, The Knocks and Joywave. 

Tickets for these newly announced shows will be available via fan presale this Wednesday, July 23 at 12pm local time. All fan presale tickets will come with a FREE download of three new St. Lucia songs from the deluxe edition of their debut full-length When The Night.

The tour marks St. Lucia’s second headline run in support of When The Night. Earlier this year, St. Lucia sold out all 23 shows on their North American headline trek. Several markets sold out within minutes, including cities like San Francisco, Los Angeles, Washington D.C., Chicago, as well as four hometown New York City shows. In addition, shows in Boston and Minneapolis were moved to larger venues to accommodate the overwhelming demand. 

Most recently, the band was direct support to Foster The People on their spring tour. This past weekend, St. Lucia performed at Louisville’s Forecastle Festival, where the city’s The Courier-Journal named St. Lucia one of the festival’s “best bubbling-under bands,” exclaiming that the band’s Jean-Philip Grobler “gets everything right.” St. Lucia will also play Montreal’s Osheaga Festival next weekend before heading to Europe for a series of festivals and headlining shows.

Experience Hendrix LLC and Legacy Recordings Announce Complete Acquisition of 88 Live and Studio Master Recordings By Curtis Knight & The Squires featuring Jimi Hendrix in 1965-1967

Buy Out of Historic Recordings from Ed Chalpin and PPX Enterprises Ends Decades of Thorny Litigation

July 17, 2014 - New York, NY - Experience Hendrix LLC, the Hendrix family music company which owns and administers the Jimi Hendrix music rights, and Legacy Recordings, the catalog division of Sony Music Entertainment, have acquired the full and complete rights to 88 studio and live recordings made by Curtis Knight & The Squires featuring Jimi Hendrix in 1965-1967, putting an end to all claims on the recordings once held by PPX Enterprises and Ed Chalpin.

The total buyout of these master recordings places a historic exclamation point following decades of litigation between Jimi Hendrix, Ed Chalpin and PPX Enterprises.  All 88 tracks recorded by Chalpin and PPX from 1965-1967 are finally under complete ownership and control of Experience Hendrix LLC.

In the early 1960s, before launching a solo career that continues to influence pop, rock and soul music, Jimi Hendrix was a little known sideman, working for short periods with a variety of artists including the Isley Brothers, Don Covay, Little Richard and the Harlem-based R&B combo Curtis Knight & The Squires.

Ed Chalpin was an entrepreneur and record producer who founded PPX International, Inc, in 1960; PPX specialized in providing backing tracks for movies, TV shows, trailers and commercials, working with a variety of artists, producers, directors, music supervisors, record companies, and production companies.   During his tenure as a guitarist for the Squires, Curtis Knight introduced Hendrix to Chalpin.  On October 15, 1965, Chalpin inked a notorious three-year recording contract--for $1.00 and a 1% royalty--with Jimi (then "Jimmy") Hendrix and Curtis Knight & The Squires that would prove endlessly problematic, once the guitarist hit big with his own group, the Jimi Hendrix Experience, in 1967.

Knight’s single releases featuring Hendrix as a sideman did not enjoy commercial success and the guitarist relocated to Greenwich Village where he formed Jimmy James & The Blue Flames in 1966.  Animal’s bassist Chas Chandler discovered Hendrix performing at the Café Wha? as Jimmy James that summer and offered to take him to London.

When Jimi signed with manager Chas Chandler and began his transition from sideman into the stratosphere, Chandler dutifully sought out, and bought out every contract his new artist might have outstanding.  The exception, Hendrix's 1965 agreement with PPX, became the source of a string of legal battles running from the 1960s into the 21st century.

Through the years, many of the recordings Hendrix made with Curtis Knight & The Squires were made available in misleading packages (often misrepresented by images of Hendrix leading the Jimi Hendrix Experience as opposed to being a member of the Squires) and have never been properly released, or evaluated, as vital and explosive exemplars of electric R&B and essential components in Jimi's artistic evolution.

In 2007, Experience Hendrix LLX obtained a stipulated court order of almost $900,000 against Ed Chalpin.  The payment  to  Experience  Hendrix  was  the  culmination  of  a 2006 lawsuit commenced  in  New  York  against Chalpin and two of his related companies.

The case dates back to a 2001 lawsuit in the UK High Court by Experience Hendrix against Chalpin and his PPX Enterprises to enforce a 1973 consent decree, which limited Chalpin’s rights in Hendrix recordings to 33 masters largely recorded in 1965 when Hendrix was an unknown backing guitarist for the R&B combo Curtis Knight & The Squires.

On July 5, 2002, a London High Court order was issued which read: "Ed Chalpin / PPX Enterprises Inc. must not issue or release recordings on which Jimi Hendrix performed in any capacity whatsoever (other than 33 songs with Jimi Hendrix as a sideman)."

Later in 2003, a New York State Court upheld the UK court’s decision.

The 88 recordings include a mythic live performance on December 26, 1965 (before Jimi's upcoming success in England) at George's Club 20 in Hackensack, New Jersey, as well as studio tracks cut by Curtis Knight & The Squires with Hendrix in July 1967 (after the May 12 release of Are You Experienced that same year).  Legacy Recordings and Experience Hendrix plan on releasing these historic recordings--properly mixed, mastered and annotated--in definitive new editions, curated and remastered under the direction of Eddie Kramer (Hendrix's long-time sound engineer) over the next three years.

“I still am amazed every time our team receives a nomination. It’s a testament to our grass-roots, blue-collar, down-home work ethic,” said Bamford. “But for me, the Fans’ Choice nomination is the most exciting nod. This nomination allows our fans to show their appreciation of our music. My focus has always been about getting people out to the shows. They are the ones who have been with me during my entire career, and they continue to support me in everything I do.” 

Country Junkie, the 6th studio album from the Alberta-based musician, was launched in October 8th, 2013 also received a Juno award nomination for Country Album of the Year in March, 2014. It garnered Bamford his first ever number one single, ‘When Your Lips Are So Close’. The album debuted in the number one spot on the Nielsen Soundscan Top Country Albums Chart. Bamford co-wrote 13 of the 14 songs on the album, and produced it with legendary Nashville-based songwriter Byron Hill. 

"Gord Bamford’s humble beginnings have given him a solid foundation to build an amazing rise to the top that he has been on the last five years,” says Hill. “Gord's growth as a songwriter and especially as a performer has been incredible. These nominations are well-deserved.” Hill received two nominations with Bamford for Record Producer(s) of the Year (Country Junkie) and for Songwriter of the Year (‘When Your Lips Are So Close’). 

Bamford also holds his band in highest regard, and recognizes their following CCMA Awards All Star Band nominations: Chad Melchert (Drums), Lisa Dodd (Bass), Ryan Davidson (Guitar), Allison Granger (Fiddle) and Robin Pelletier (Mandolin). His team was also honoured in these CCMA Award categories: Cache Entertainment Inc. (Management Company of the Year), Paul Biro/Shawn Sakamoto, Sakamoto Entertainment (Ron Sakamoto Talent Buyer or Promoter of the Year), Sakamoto Entertainment (Booking Agency of the Year), and Sony Music Entertainment (Canada) Inc. (Record Company of the Year). That totals 14 official CCMA nominations for the Canadian country singer. “I’ve always said that it takes a team of people to be successful. And I’m proud of their recognition today as well.”

Bamford has amassed an amazing 16 CCMA Awards since blasting onto the scene back in 2008 when he won Top New Male Talent of the Year. Bamford continues his relentless summer festival tour schedule by playing KDays in Edmonton, Alberta on July 24, Country Thunder Festival in Twin Lakes, WI on July 24, Boots and Hearts Festival in Bowmanville, ON August 3 and Rockin’ River Music Festival on August 9 in Mission, BC.

Yelle announces new album details, hear a song from it now

Complètement Fou out Sept. 30 on Kemosabe Records
Touring North America & Europe this fall

Lyric Video: Yelle - "Bouquet Final"
 http://youtu.be/9wvhqdyi8xk 
        
Complètement fou. If you've got even a barely passable grasp on functional French then you'll know what those two words mean. Bonkers. Bananes. Completely crazy. It's a phrase that not only goes a long way to describing the gleefully mad electronic pop of Yelle - it also applies to the group's unusual rise. They have taken their time between neon-streaked albums, sung every fizzy song in their native tongue, poked fun at their peers, and stayed clear of trends. And now, nearly a decade after forming in 2005, they're releasing an album produced by Dr. Luke and his team. See? Complètement Fou.

Yelle's third long-player will be released on the hit-maker's own Kemosabe Records and the team-up makes good sense. Though these Frenchies may not have one of the household names we're used to seeing next to that man's handle (Katy Perry, Robin Thicke, Britney Spears) they've long possessed an originality of voice and strength in songwriting that transcends whatever their trappings. Of course, they see it a bit differently. "We just do things we love," says Yelle, née Julie Budet. "This is the only rule we have. At the end of the day this is what makes Yelle: Spontaneity."

And Yelle once again make an album that is pure Yelle. Complètement Fou is equally wild and wry, celebratory and melancholy, sensual and strange, forceful and full of fun. Cofounder and key composer GrandMarnier (Jean-François Perrier) laid down the frame for each song. Then Luke and his ace team - Oliver, Cirkut, Kool Kojack, A.C, Billboard, JMIKE, and MadMax - amplified what was already there instead of inventing a new identity. Collaboration was new territory, but it was the perfect path forward to advance the bouncy, synthesizer-rich sound of 2011's Safari Disco Club. 

Look no further than the titular track to hear that growth in action: "Complètement Fou" opens with chopped rave keys, round sequencer blips, a mighty low-end kick, and playful effects à la Basement Jaxx. Then comes Yelle's voice - a transcendent thing that compliments those lush electronics so well. While "Coca Sans Bulles" tows the dark/light line between '80s electro oddness and Daft Punk disco, "Jeune Fille Garnement" slinks/surges like the Knife's freaky outré techno. "Ba$$in" swirls rap with Eurodance; "Dire Qu'on Va Tous Mourir" puts R&B through a Oneohtrix filter.

And then there's "Moteur Action," a song whose summer breeziness suggests a top-down highway ride, oversized sunglasses on, scarf trailing behind. Though knowing Yelle, the lyrics aren't so blithe as those ebullient oohs might have you believe. Our heroine explains the album's primary themes as "relationships, love, bodies, dance, and sensuality, but also death." Ecstasy prevails in parts too. We'll let you seek your own translation of "Nuit de Baise," but "Florence en Italie" was inspired by Stendhal Syndrome, which causes viewers of particularly moving art to swoon and pass out.

Yelle sought a lyrical partner for Complètement Fou as well: "a French dandy called Jérôme Echenoz," in her words, though he's best known as Tacteel (of TTC, for those who remember the details of Yelle's 2007 debut, Pop Up). "We used to do everything by ourselves," she says, "but we wanted to open the circle this time around because we love people!" She insists there are no direct dis songs in the vein of "Je Veux Te Voir," only "some winks here and there... not personal, more about society." To wit, she counts Votaire's monumental 1759 satire Candide among the LP's influences.

At the heart of Yelle today is the same spirit that brought the pair formerly known as Julie and Jean-François together, as great friends, in 2000. They initially called their project YEL - an acronym for "You Enjoy Life" - but the exuberant, feminized, Francofied shout they've taken for a moniker suits them perfectly. We yell when we are happy with the world and we yell when we're pissed off at its ways. But we probably yell our best when we're complètement fou.
