Cavalera Conspiracy
Cavalera Conspiracy

Sepultura co-founders Max & Igor Cavalera's current band Cavalera Conspiracy released their newest album, Pandemoniom (with Converge's Nate Newton on bass), last year, and now they've announced a tour in support of it. The tour is with Bay Area thrash vets Death Angel, Corrosion of Conformity Blind (featuring original CoC drummer Reed Mullin and vocalist Karl Agell, who sang on 1991's Blind), and Lody Kong (which features Max's sons Zyon and Igor).

It hits NYC on April 19 at the Marlin Room at Webster Hall. Tickets for that show go on sale Friday (3/6) at 10 AM. All dates are listed below.

Jenny Hval

Norway's Jenny Hval signed to Sacred Bones for her next album, which is called Apocalypse, girl and comes out on June 9 via the label. The album was produced by a fellow Norwegian musician, noise veteran Lasse Marhaug, and it features Thor Harris (of Swans), Oystein Moen (of Jaga Jazzist), Okkyung Lee, Havard Volden, Kyrre Laastad, and Rhodri Davies. The new single, "That Battle Is Over," is out now, and it takes the art pop of 2013's Innocence Is Kinky into slightly bigger-sounding territories. Listen below.

As mentioned, Jenny has tour dates supporting St. Vincent and Perfume Genius, including his NYC show on March 19 at Stage 48 (tickets). She's now added her own much smaller NYC show happening at the new Bushwick venue Alphaville on March 29 with SoftSpot. Tickets for that show go on sale Friday (3/6) at 10 AM.

Updated dates are listed, with the song stream and LP tracklist, below...

Brian Wilson

Beach Boy Brian Wilson was already scheduled to perform at NJ's State Theatre 2015 Benefit Gala in May, and he's now revealed a full tour to take place in the following months. It kicks off in California, brings him back to the NYC-area for a couple shows, and ends back on the West Coast in Seattle. The band for this run includes former Beach Boys Al Jardine and Blondie Chaplin. And in what should be a great double bill, storied singer Rodriguez will open on almost all dates (except Toronto).

The NYC-area shows happen June 30 at Nikon at Jones Beach Theater and July 1 at PNC Bank Arts Center. Tickets for those shows go on sale April 17 at noon.

Brian's new solo album, No Pier Pressure, is due out April 7 via Capitol, and the new biopic on his life will screen this month at SXSW. All dates are listed, with the lyric video for "The Right Time" from the new album, below...

Violent Reaction

The UK's Violent Reaction recall old school straight edge hardcore and Oi!, and they're set to deliver another dose of that on their sophomore LP, Marching On. It's due March 31 via the legendary Revelation Records, which has been responsible for a handful of the band's straight edge influences. (For example, a recent press photo has singer Tom P wearing the shirt of Rev co-founder Ray Cappo's band Youth of Today.) Listen to the just-released "No Pride" (via Lambgoat) and three other rippers from the LP, below.

Violent Reaction were on our side of the pond with The Flex last year, and they'll return for another tour here this spring. The tour is leading up to DC's Damaged City Fest, and it hits NYC along the way at Acheron on April 3 with La Misma, Arms Race, Standoff and NYC Headhunters. Tickets for that show are on sale now.

All dates are listed, with the four song streams, below...

Brian Bell

First Weezer was announced for Burger Records' Burgerarma Four festival, and more recently it's been announced that Burger signed The Relationship, the band fronted by original (and current) Weezer guitarist Brian Bell. They've had a rotating lineup, but Brian's currently joined by drummer Anthony Burulcich (who was in The Bravery and briefly in Morrissey's live band), bassist John LaRue (who's also worked with Albert Hammond Jr), and guitarist Nate Shaw. Their new 7", "Oh Allen," will be out April 8 via Burger, and you can watch a video of them playing that song at last year's Weezer Cruise, below.

The Relationship are also on Burgerama Four, and right after that they'll head out on a lengthy US tour with support from Gringo Star. The tour hits NYC on April 29 at The Studio at Webster Hall. Tickets for that show go on sale Friday (3/6) at 1 PM. All dates are listed below.

Burger's '90s alternative game has been on point lately. To recap, in the past year they've also signed The Muffs and Superdrag spinoff The Lees of Memory.

And in other Weezer news, Detour, the upcoming FOX sitcom based on Rivers Cuomo's life, has found its Rivers. Deadline reports that British actor Ben Aldridge will star as Michael Sturges (the character based on Rivers), and that Joey Morgan will be cast in the pilot too. The pilot was written by Psych creator Steve Franks and directed by Jeremy Garelick.

Parisian multi-instrumentalist Pablo Padovani makes far-out, cosmic pop under the name Moodoïd. (Live, Moodoïd is a five-piece band.) His album, Le Monde Möö, came out last year and is worth checking out. It's a glammy fusion of psych, prog and kraut -- you can stream it below. It's about to get a vinyl repress which comes with a few extra songs, like "Le lac d'or" which features vocals from Melody Prochet (aka Melody's Echo Chamber). That song, which will also be featured on a five-song Moodoïd cassette on Burger Records, makes its premiere in this post. Have a listen below.

Padovani also plays in the Melody's Echo Chamber live band who will be touring around Austin Levitation festival (fka Psych Fest), including a NYC show at Music Hall of Williamsburg on May 12 with Corridor. Tickets for that show are still available.
