The Dead Weather To Return With ‘Dodge & Burn’ In September

The Dead Weather To Return With ‘Dodge & Burn’ In September

dead-weather-press-2015

Way back in October 2013, The Dead Weather and Third Man Records announced an incredibly special 7” featuring “Open Up (That’s Enough)” b/w “Rough Detective” as part of Vault Package #18. These two tracks were a fierce battle cry heralding the announcement of a brand new Dead Weather album that was to be released in a revolutionary fashion. Teased out over the past year and a half via a series of 7” singles, the physical versions of which were ONLY available via The Vault (Third Man’s one-of-a-kind subscription mail-order service), the band promised this would culminate in a brand new album in 2015. The third Dead Weather LP would be a full length album comprised not only of the previously released 7” singles, but newly recorded, previously-unheard material. Today, The Dead Weather officially announce their new album ‘Dodge & Burn.’

‘Dodge & Burn’ will be released worldwide in September 2015 on Third Man Records and will feature eight brand new songs, along with the four previously released tracks remixed and remastered. Alison Mosshart, Jack White, Dean Fertita and Jack Lawrence spent their rare and sporadic free moments over the past year recording together in Nashville. With the members of the band heavily involved in other projects, The Dead Weather will not be touring in support of the new album. Thankfully the thick and heavy Dodge & Burn will satisfy your urges for the dark magic that is The Dead Weather for a very long time.

The ONLY special, limited edition version of the new album will be released as Vault Package #25, which will arrive the same week as the standard album release in September. The Dodge & Burn Vault Package will include:

-A limited edition Dodge & Burn LP on Inclement Weather vinyl (that is to say opaque yellow with black ‘debris’) housed in a soft-touch embossed sleeve featuring metallic ink and a Vault-exclusive alternate cover designed by Rob Jones, also featuring a limited edition bonus poster inside.

-The only physical version of the new Dead Weather 7” and single from Dodge & Burn on yellow vinyl with black debris.

-A deck of custom Dead Weather playing cards designed by Silent Giants featuring the band members as the King, Queen, Jack and Joker. Previously released in limited numbers and now, due to popular demand, re-issued for the Vault only with new packaging artwork.

Subscriptions for Vault Package #25 are open until July 31st. And if you need a reminder of what you’re in for, here are some clips of the previously released tracks from the upcoming album: https://soundcloud.com/thirdmanrecords/sets/dead-weather-dodge-burn-vault

Mini Mansions Release Intense Psychological Video For “Death Is A Girl”

Mini Mansions Release Intense Psychological Video For “Death Is A Girl”

Mini Mansions

Mini Mansions

Hailing from California, Mini Mansions‘ musical venture was born organically, fated from a shared love of punk rock and melody. While each member made his own way individually, Mini Mansions formed as jam sessions turned into recordings. (Michael Shuman is the current bassist in Queens of the Stone Age, Zach Dawes has served as a studio hired gun and has worked with Brian Wilson, Kimbra, and longtime mentor T Bone Burnett, Tyler Parkford releases music under his solo moniker Mister Goodnite.)

The Great Pretenders follows its self-titled debut (on Josh Homme’s Rekords Rekords). Immediately, Mini Mansions starting playing shows with the likes of Arctic Monkeys, Them Crooked Vultures, The Kills, Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr. and Haim.

“When we first got together, we agreed on things like late Beatles, Elliott Smith, early Big Star, and Electric Light Orchestra,” they say. They also share a clear affinity for The Zombies, Gorillaz, and Devo.

The band simply had this to say: “The video is a neo-noir mix of sex, death, and psychedelic interrogation techniques, only used in purgatory facilities disguised as 1970’s police holding tanks.”

Mini Mansions’ drop their new video for “Death Is A Girl,” the first single from their upcoming album, The Great Pretenders, due in early 2015 on T Bone Burnett’s Electromagnectic Recordings, via Capitol Recordsin the U.S. and Fiction Recordsin the UK. Watch the clip HERE.

Mini Mansions are T Bone Burnett’s first signing, and also likely the only record you’ll hear that features both Brian Wilson and Arctic Monkeys’ Alex Turner. Drummer Michael Shuman in the band is also bassist for Queens of the Stone Age.

Budweiser Made In America 2013: Awesome Artist Lineup Unveiled!

Shawn “JAY Z” Carter, Budweiser and United Way of Greater Philadelphia and Southern New Jersey and Live Nation announced the line-up of the 2013 “Budweiser Made In America” music festival.  Following last year’s groundbreaking inaugural concert, the two-day festival features some of today’s most diverse live performers.  The blockbuster line-up was unveiled today via an exclusive Spotify playlist, http://spoti.fi/10SBoYP. Complete ticket purchasing and presale information is listed below.

As he did in 2012, JAY Z has curated an explosive roster of talent, which includes headliners Nine Inch Nails, Beyoncé as well as A$ap Rocky, Nero and Haim along with more than 30 others who represent excellence, artistry and the American spirit.  Performers will appear across three stages on the Benjamin Franklin Parkway in Philadelphia’s Fairmont Park on Saturday, August 31and Sunday, September 1.

“Last year Pearl Jam, Miike Snow, Gary Clarke Jr., Odd Future, Skrillex and Janelle Monáe killed,” commented JAY Z.  “This year, we have Nine Inch Nails, Beyoncé, Empire of the Sun, Kendrick Lamar and deadmau5.  This festival is all about experiencing great music and performances as a family.  I can’t wait to get back to Benjamin Franklin Parkway, see some stage diving, walk through the crowds, drink a little and rock out again.”

Musical acts confirmed to perform are:
Beyoncé, Nine Inch Nails, Queens Of The Stone Age, deadmau5, Phoenix, Calvin Harris, Empire Of The Sun, Imagine Dragons, Wiz Khalifa, Kendrick Lamar, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Miguel, Public Enemy, Solange, 2 Chainz, The Gaslight Anthem, A$ap Rocky, Walk The Moon, Nero, Feed Me, Porter Robinson, Wolfgang Gartner, Fitz & The Tantrums, Emile Sandé, Haim, Schoolboy Q, AB Soul, GTA, Robert Delong, Redlight, Mord Fustang, Alunageorge, Jay Rock, Jesse Rose and TJR.

“Budweiser has a decades-long history of celebrating great American music,” said Paul Chibe, Vice President of U.S Marketing at Anheuser-Busch.  “A music festival is one of the most powerful ways to bring people together, so we’re thrilled that once again the incomparable JAY Z and United Way have joined us to ensure that Budweiser Made in America brings a world-class line-up of music to Philadelphia this Labor Day Weekend.”

This concert will benefit United Ways in Greater Philadelphia and Southern New Jersey and Lancaster County, PA.  A primary goal of this music festival is to have a positive impact on the communities involved. As a result of this concert, the money invested into these communities will positively impact the education, income and health of the most vulnerable and most needy citizens in these regions.

As a result of last year’s Budweiser Made in America festival, United Way of Greater Philadelphia and Southern New Jersey is investing more than $350,000 into education and talent development initiatives to enhance cradle-to-career education that ensures all students graduate high school college- or career-ready and equips individuals with the job skills and training they need to secure work that provides a family-sustaining income.

The festival also enabled United Way of Lancaster County to invest an additional $100,000 in programs and services that support learning success across the education continuum.

“The debut of the Budweiser Made In America festival last year was a huge event for music fans from all over the Northeast, ” said Mark Campana Co President of North American Concerts, Live Nation.   “The two-day festival will once again feature an incredible and diverse roster with Beyoncé, Nine Inch Nails, deadmau5 and so much more.   The beautiful location of the Ben Franklin Parkway combined the wonderful spirit of Philadelphia creates a once-in-a-lifetime festival experience that no music fan can miss.”

“Once again, I am thrilled to announce that the Budweiser Made in America Festival has chosen Philadelphia as its home,” said Mayor Michael A. Nutter.  “Last year’s event, hosted on the historic and dynamic cultural corridor of the Benjamin Franklin Parkway, was a huge success, significantly impacting our local economy.  The City of Philadelphia is excited to welcome back JAY Z and Made in America.”

Described as “veritable music lover’s paradise over Labor Day weekend,” the 2012 “Budweiser Made In America” music festival featured 28 performers including JAY Z, Pearl Jam, D’Angelo, Afrojack, Jill Scott, Run DMC, Odd Future, Skrillex and Passion Pit.  In its debut, the festival received rave reviews, with press such as the Philadelphia Inquirer noting, “There was no arguing with Made in America’s ability to put on a diverse set of musical acts…the fest…worked as a uniquely urban, impressively varied draw for a multiracial millennial generation crowd.”

Spotify is the official digital music sponsor for the Budweiser Made in America Festival and will be presenting exclusive content and producing exclusive on-site activations.

The Budweiser Made In America Festival art features a work from the acclaimed American artist, Richard Prince.  The piece used is called “Untitled (The Velvets).”  It was created in 2007 and is collage and acrylic on canvas.

“Budweiser Made in America” also will be available for consumers around the country to watch via live streaming. Details will be announced at a later date.
