News Briefs: New Arcade Fire, Rivers Crashes, Tour Dates and More

Cuomo & Co. in Tour Bus Accident; Doesn’t Travel With Bandmates?


Rivers Cumo, his wife, baby daughter, nanny, and driver were in a fairly serious tour bus accident that lead to some broken ribs and cancelled shows. Apparently the van hit black ice and the bus crashed into a ravine, harming mostly Rivers and his wife. Although this is definitely distressing news, and I hope nothing but a speedy recovery to all involved, it made me wonder: do many bands travel in separate tour buses? Am I the only one surprised none of the Weezer band-mates were in the bus with Rivers?

KEXP Join The iPhone Craze; Life Continues To Be Good For Apple Users

Arcade Fire Talks New Album; World Becomes Better Place

If you’ve been crafting a best-of-the-decade list, then you’ve probably got Arcade Fire on the brain. You might not be sure how you’ve survived since 2007 without a new release from the Canadian Orchestral sensations, but trust me when I say you only have to wait a little bit longer. There’s no album cover, or track listing, or sample mp3’s (yet), but word on the digital-street is that Arcade Fire’s third release is set for a May birthdate. The only other savory detail as of yet is that Markus Dravs is producing (see: Engineer for “Neon Bible”) and has apparently gone on the record saying that these new songs are “better”. Commence hyperventalation.
