Listen to the new Cannibal Animal tune, ‘Lack Of Skin’

Listen to the new Cannibal Animal track, taken from their EP, ‘A Decline In Morality’ right here.

There’s a feverish sense of panic and aggression to 2018’s Cannibal Animal, returning to put their former UK City of Culture back on the map with dirty, scuzzy post-punk anthems centred around desperation and anxiety, in the form of EP, ‘A Decline In Morality’, produced by The Talks’ Pat Pretorious (Vulgarians, The Black Delta Movement) in AOO Studios in the band’s hometown.

The band comments: “With this EP we were writing in a different mindset, rather than trying to write a collection of songs that merely blow the brains from your skull, we focused a lot more recently on rhythm and a few of theses tracks ended up taking on a tribal-dance element.”

Lyrically these songs are about the moral compass of specific fictional characters; the candle burning nymphomaniac, in ‘Lack Of Skin’, to the boring office day job, and then actual cannibal by night in ‘Ripe’; we invite you to take a decline in morality with these characters – they’re in all of you.”

Cannibal Animal are: Luke Ellerington (vocals, guitar), Jacob White (guitar), Jamie Hanson (bass) and Thomas Joad Gibbins (drums).

Travis Barker & Trippie Redd Assist Paris on ‘One Night In Paris’ EP



Features from Travis Barker & Trippie Redd

Touring with Post Malone & 21 Savage

Today, buzzing new artist Paris released his highly-anticipated debut EP, One Night In Paris. The excitement comes shortly after Paris announced his tour with rap superstars, Post Malone and 21 Savage. After working with celebrated hip-hop star, Gunna for “Po’ed Up,” the California native has impressively acquired features from Blink-182’s legendary drummer, Travis Barker and rap phenomenon Trippie Redd.

One Night in Paris is an 8-track body of work full of heartbreak, love, and unconstrained self expression. The robust production and lyrics highlight Paris’s eccentric energy and uncensored emotion.

One of the EP’s standout tracks, “Crushin” merges Travis Barker’s prodigious drums and Paris’s commanding vocals for a nostalgic melody that reminisces over failed relationships. Also, adding to the project, is one of hip-hop’s most exciting new artists, Trippie Redd on the lead single, “Gone.” Both Paris and Trippie harmoniously cry through their admission of self sabotage and complacency with heartache.

One Night in Paris is an revealing body of work that give new listeners a look into the heart of the cellist and former firefighter. Named after The Cure’s album, Paris, Paris Vasquez has found his place in music with a singular sound that fuses the most beautiful elements of both hip-hop and rock. Paris’s splash onto the music scene has been recognized by Adam22’s No Jumper, Highsnobiety, XXL, Hot New Hip-Hop, Revolt TV, Hip-Hop DX, and Elevator Mag. Unapologetically frantic and theatrical, Paris finds comfort in all genres of music and doesn’t allow society’s binary expectations affect his sense of style.

Listen to the One Night in Paris EP and be sure to catch Paris on his nation wide tour with Post Malone and 21 Savage, which kicks off this Thursday. There’s definitely more to come from the extraordinary artist, Paris.

Pink’s Badass Guide to Conquering Life, Love & Everything in Between

Written By | Diana Pearl


When Pink fell ill just before her Montreal concert, she knew she needed to do what was best for her: Postpone the event. “Our entire family has been battling this awful virus/flu for two weeks now, and I have battled my way through these shows because postponing sucks,” she wrote on Twitter, apologizing to her fans. “I’m really sorry and know that I have done everything I could to avoid this.” Luckily, her fans understood: Sometimes, self care is necessary.


To that same point, just as important as knowing when to bow out is knowing when to keep going. When Pink fell ill before the 2018 Super Bowl, she still managed to perform — and received a standing ovation. “I am beyond proud of this woman,” husband Carey Hart wrote on Instagram following her performance. “The roller coaster that she went through this last week with getting sick and losing her voice would have broke any ordinary person.”


When you’re a celeb, there’s no shame in using your star power to treat those you love the most. And for Pink, that came in the form of arranging a meeting between her daughter, Willow, and Willow’s favorite singer, Rihanna. “Willz has been a fan of @badgalriri for a long time, and mama got an intro for her,” Pink wrote on Instagram alongside a photo of the trio at the Grammys. “Major mom points tonight.”


Pink is always ready to dole out some realness, and that’s something people love about her. One mom came up to tell her that in the grocery store — and the two even shed a tear together. “A really sweet Mama came up 2me tonight at the grocery store and told me some nice words about how she gets strength from my parenting cause I’m not afraid to f— up in public,” Pink wrote on Twitter. “We cried together. It’s so hard.” She used the moment to remind that woman, as well as the rest of her fans, that sometimes, you need to cut yourself some slack. She added: “I wish us mamas could give ourselves and each other a break.”


Willow may only be 6 years old, but she’s already asking questions about boys and dating — and Pink is sure to steer her on a path of self-respect when it comes to relationships. “They have to kind, respectful. They have to be chivalrous, they have to be good to their moms,” Pink told Cosmopolitan of what advice she gave to her daughter. “They have to be good looking, they have to be funny.”


Pink has never been one to blend in with the crowd, and she encourages Willow to do the same. “[A] very important thing I tell my daughter is it’s very fun to be weird and it’s very boring to be normal,” Pink told Cosmopolitan. “I have a rule with Willow that we don’t say mean things and we don’t say things we don’t mean.”


Good luck to those trying to stir up drama in Pink’s life — especially where there is none. Twitter speculated that there was a feud between her and Christina Aguilera after viewers thought they saw Pink cringing during Aguilera’s Whitney Houston tribute performance. But it didn’t take Pink long to clap back at these rumor-spreaders, tweeting: “Waking up to see a newly created riff between myself and another incredible woman, Christina, who took on an incredible feat, who I support fully, makes me so sad. You all perpetuate keeping women apart b/c you’re afraid of the power we have when we get together.”


Pink doesn’t lie — even when the truth is a little messy. She got candid about her relationship with husband Carey Hart in an interview with The Guardian, confessing that there are times when she doesn’t like him at all. “There are moments where I look at [Hart] and he is the most thoughtful, logical, constant … he’s like a rock. He’s a good man. He’s a good dad. He’s just the kind of dad I thought he’d be and then some,” she said. “And then I’ll look at him and go: ‘I’ve never liked you. There’s nothing I like about you. We have nothing in common. I don’t like any of the s— you like. I don’t ever wanna see you again.”

“It’s such a thrill to work with the world-renowned X Ambassadors. My team and I at Bleeding Fingers are honored to once again bring together contemporary musicians with orchestral backing.

Davies Symphony Hall. For performance dates and ticket information, visit natgeo-symphony.com.


DJ Khaled & Demi Lovato Drop Magical ‘I Believe’ Music Video From ‘A Wrinkle in Time’ Soundtrack

Written By | Wandera Hussein

The video for Demi Lovato and DJ Khaled’s collab “I Believe” from the A Wrinkle in Time soundtrack is here. After teasing the clip on Good Morning America on Wednesday (Mar. 7), the full music video officially dropped today, and it’s quite the magical experience.

The visual takes themes from A Wrinkle in Time, and sees Lovato prancing around a seemingly endless field of green grass, with a lush blue sky as the backdrop. The pop sensation stands defiant, dressed in a lavish red gown, with large gold jewelry draped across her chest. Lovato stretches her elastic vocals and croons about believing in oneself and overcoming struggle. “Today I saw a rainbow in the rain/ It told me I can do anything/ if I believe, I believe, I believe in me,” she sings.

Demi Lovato arrives at Jingle Ball at The Forum on Friday, Dec. 1, 2017, in Inglewood, Calif. 

Scenes from the film blend in with the upbeat record, as DJ Khaled appears periodically, marking the tune with his signature “another one” phrase. He also dishes out inspiring words — “When times got hard, I went harder. The best thing I ever did was believe in me” — while standing alongside the “Sorry Not Sorry” singer in a warm sunset.

See Black Eyed Peas’ Robust ‘Street Livin” Performance on ‘Colbert’

Hip-hop group comments on modern slavery, prison-industrial complex with latest single.

The Black Eyed Peas brought new single “Street Livin,'” a clear-eyed denunciation of American racism, to The Late Show on Monday.

The track is sample-based hip-hop, but the Black Eyed Peas used live musicians to recreate the original loop on The Late Show. The bassist played stubby riffs, while a drummer smacked a cymbal-heavy rhythm. A saxophonist and trumpeter added a lingering, melancholy brass riff.

Members of the Black Eyed Peas delivered their lines with little theatricality, looking directly into the camera. “If you’re ebony, they assume your temperament/ Will be vigilant and they call you militant,” Apl.de.ap rapped. “And you’ll get shot and they’ll say the incident/ Is ’cause you’re belligerent, what a coincidence.”

Though many young fans know the Black Eyed Peas primarily as a Top 40 juggernaut, they started as a politically conscious hip-hop group before reaching pop ubiquity. “It’s not like ‘Oh, the Black Eyed Peas are back and now they’re militant,'” Will.i.am. recently told the Los Angeles Times. “Our first big hit was ‘Where Is the Love?’ where we were talking about real stuff. From the brutality of the education system to prison reform, we’ve been out in the community. This is the work we’ve been doing.”

“Street Livin'” accompanies a new graphic novel from the Black Eyed Peas titled Masters of the Sun: The Zombie Chronicles. The Black Eyed Peas plant to unveil a Masters of the Sun virtual reality experience at the Sundance Film Festival. They have no plans to release an album at the moment. “A record is so limited to the kind of things we want to do – 15 songs and a video or two videos on a project doesn’t really feel like much creativity,” Will.i.am told Variety.

Arctic Monkeys’ New Album Is In the Works, Due Out Next Year

Written By | Chris Payne

Can you believe it’s been four years since the Arctic Monkeys released their last record? The British rawk idols had been huge in their homeland since their 2006 debut, but the sultry, R&B grooves of 2013’s AM brought them newfound notoriety; lead single “Do I Wanna Know?” became their first U.S. No. 1 on Billboard’s Alternative Songs chart and later, two other tracks made the top 5 of the tally. “Do I Wanna Know?” even cracked the Hot 100 (and spent 20 weeks there!), another first for the band. But rather than quickly follow on that success, Alex Turner and company put off work on LP number six… at least until quite recently.

The news comes from, of all places, a motorcycling magazine called For the Ride, which recently spent a day at the tracks with Arctic Monkeys bassist Nick O’Malley and Reverend and the Makers drummer Ryan Jenkinson. A day after the hangout (which took place this month), the Monkeys apparently began recording their new album at some “secret location.” O’Malley expects the album to be out next year, quipping, “If it isn’t, we’ve got problems.”

So there you have it — the new Arctic Monkeys album is at least in the early stages of becoming a real, tangible thing. The article doesn’t offer much else in terms of band-related news, but for the Monkeys, this is the most we’ve heard in some time.

Since wrapping AM touring in late 2014, frontman Alex Turner released the sophomore album from his side project, the Last Shadow Puppets, in April 2016.

As we patiently await the next Arctic Monkeys collection, we leave you with the video for “Do I Wanna Know?”
