TUESDAY

MONDAY

Titus Andronicus

Free Energy

Titus Andronicus and Free Energy just finished a tour culminating with an epic show at Webster Hall with Screaming Females.  Check out this video of the co-headliners covering Bruce Springsteen’s “I’m Going Down” from September 20 at The Earl in Atlanta via the Youtube account ifilmbands:

My Chemical Romance

My Chemical Romance reveals the track listing for Danger Days: True Lives Of The Fabulous Killjoys, its November 23rd release.  I don’t truly understand why band’s continue to do this.  Nobody gives a shit about the track listing, unless its a cover album, until they have the tracks.  But, musicians continue to do it and MCR has followed suit.

  2. Na Na Na
  3. Sing
  4. Planetary (Go!)
  5. The Only Hope For Me Is You
  6. Jet-Star And The Kobra Kid / Traffic Report
