The Cult have been celebrating their 1987 LP, Electric, the album that marked their change from post-punks to hard rockers, this year with a double album reissue, Electric Peace, and they've also been playing it in full on tour. Another North American leg of that tour begins this week with two stops in the NYC-area, including Wellmont Theatre on Thursday (12/5) in Montclair, NJ and Paramount Theatre on Friday (12/6) in Huntington, NY. Tickets for both of those shows are available, and we're also giving away a pair to the Wellmont date. Contest details and all tour dates below.
In a Spanish interview from earlier this year, the band also revealed plans to release a new album in 2014, which would be the followup to 2012's Choice of Weapon.
Check out a full set video of the band's Electric 13 Live tour stop in San Diego from this past July, along with the list of upcoming dates and contest details, below...

When not playing guitar in Oberhofer, Matt Scheiner makes his own music under the name Tropic of Pisces. "Tropic" being a key word, this is breezy stuff and may just be an antidote for some to winter's chill. Tropic of Pisces' new EP, Symmetry, comes out February 25 via Ooh La La. We've got the premiere of the EP's title track and you can stream that below.
You can also go see Tropic of Pisces live if you're going to be in the NYC area. They play Glasslands on Monday (12/9) with Klaus, Tropic of Pisces, Imaginary Weapons, Cameron Hull, and the Oh My Goth DJs. This show is free to anyone 21 or over.

Brand New at Riot Fest Chicago 2013 (more by Cory Dewald)
As discussed, Brand New are playing their discography at a pair of NYC-area shows and a pair of California shows this month. Those sold out instantly, but the band have added a third date in each area, including an intimate Brooklyn show happening on December 22 at The Bell House. A presale began today (12/4) and is already sold out, but regular tickets go on sale at 2 PM (aka in like 10 minutes). The last two shows sold out in about .000001 seconds so act quick. Being that the plan was to play 2 of their 4 albums a night, we're not 100% sure what they'll be performing at this third show.

Behemoth at Irving Plaza, 2012 (more by Greg Cristman)
Behemoth frontman Nergal is kind of a badass -- he's an extremely gifted musician and a live-performance powerhouse who's played an important role in putting the potent Polish metal scene on the international map over the past 20 years. He's also a cancer survivor; after his 2010 leukemia diagnosis, he underwent chemotherapy and a bone marrow transplant. Two years later, Behemoth were back on the road and plowing through high-energy live sets like nothing had happened. Again, badass.
Behemoth announced a 2014 release for The Satanist -- their tenth album, and their first in half a decade -- a few months ago. I admittedly haven't been too excited by their last few efforts, but after watching the NSFW video for leadoff single "Blow Your Trumpets Gabriel" (streaming below), my enthusiasm for the band has been rekindled. It's far moodier and more patient composition than the cluttered, robotic death/black metal that they've produced recently. They can still put the hammer down when they need to, though; the song's final minute is both the catchiest and most intense moment I've heard them produce since the mid-aughts. The video is pretty cool too, especially if you're into artsy black-and-white shots of evil rituals happening in slow motion.
In related news, Behemoth were also recently announced as part of the initial lineup for the 2014 edition of France's Hellfest, which will take place from June 20 through 22 (6/20-6/22). The lineup so far is huge and crazy: there's a "huge rock band" stage, featuring Iron Maiden, Aerosmith, Black Sabbath, Deep Purple, and Soundgarden, among others; a big-name thrash/black metal stage that spotlights Slayer, Death Angel, Emperor, Iced Earth, Behemoth, and more; a death metal stage that will include Death To All, Carcass, Opeth, Nile, Gorguts, Hail of Bullets, and Weekend Nachos; a smaller black metal stage topped off by Watain, Gorgoroth and 1349; a sludge/stoner stage featuring Electric Wizard, Monster Magnet, Unida, Kylesa, Godflesh, and Clutch; and a punk stage topped by Walls of Jericho, Millencolin, and Turbonegro. Wow. You can reserve tickets now, if you feel like parsing the Google-Translated ticket page.

Austin Psych Fest 2013 (more by Tim Griffin)
The 6th annual Austin Psych Fest happens from May 2-4 at the Carson Creek Ranch (where it took place last year), and this year's lineup includes Primal Scream, Loop, The Black Angels, The Zombies, of Montreal, The Horrors, Black Lips, Avey Tare's Slasher Flick, Liars, Mono, Destruction Unit, Oneohtrix Point Never, Moon Duo, TOY, Earthless, Shannon and the Clams, La Femme, Yamantaka // Sonic Titan, Quilt, Gap Dream, Circuit Des Yeux, and more. Tickets (including a camping pass option) are on sale now.
Let's hope that means a Loop (who just played ATP End of an Era) and Primal Scream will have other North American shows while here. French band La Femme mentioned they'd be doing a two-month North American tour in 2014 and this is the first actual date we've seen.

Treefort Music Festival will return for its third annual year in 2014 from March 20-23 across various venues in Downtown Boise, ID. The initial lineup was just announced and it includes Run the Jewels (who also just announced a free NYC show), Built to Spill, Breton, Saintseneca, SubRosa, Uzala, Warm Soda, The Joy Formidable, Boyfrndz and more. 4-day passes (and a few other ticket options) are on sale now.
In other Built to Spill news, someone listed "Built To Spill Perfect From Now On Studio Master Tapes 10" x 1/2" Metal Reels 15 IPS RARE" on, of all places, Etsy! The description reads:
Incredibly rare. It's not everyday you come across a piece of real music history. These are the only master tapes for this album. One of a kind, these are not recorded from album to tape. These are the original master recordings for Built To Spill's 1997 LP Perfect From Now On. These are recorded to 4 count 1/2" Ampex Gold Studio Masters. However not every track on the album appears here and vice versa. They contain the initial studio recordings without remaster, mixing, and overdubs. Pre-engineered and mixed by Warner Brothers. This is the raw studio recording. Highest grade tape and reels. These are breathtaking! If you're a fan of BTS or Northwest music, consider this, it's like finding the the "Velvet Underground" of Idaho's unreleased acetate. Thanks for looking. Check back often, we add new stock daily to our shop.Unfortunately though, this item is now sold.
I'm selling these as a document to the making of an album, I do not claim to own the rights to the music contained on these reels and am selling the reels as found objects.

Well that was fast. We pondered yesterday, with the announcement of two NYC shows from The War on Drugs, if there might be official word on a new album, and today we get the details. The Philadelphia band will release Lost in the Dream on March 14 via Secretly Canadian. That's the cover art above and the track list is below. Recorded over two years in four states, the new album was produced by frontman Adam Granduciel. Check out a stream of the first released song from the album, "Red Eyes," below.
Those NYC dates -- Bowery Ballroom on March 20 and Music Hall of Williamsburg on March 21 (tickets on sale now) -- are part of a full North American tour and all dates are listed below...
As discussed, A$AP Ferg is bringing his tour with Joey Fatts, Aston Matthews, Overdoz, and 100s to his hometown of NYC this Friday (12/6) at Irving Plaza. Tickets to that show were offered without fees as part of the venue's Black Friday-Cyber Monday deal, but now if you'd like to go and not pay anything at all, we're giving away a pair of tickets. Details on how to enter to win are below.
In related news, another A$AP Mob member, A$AP Ant is playing a show later this month at Santos Party House on December 18 with Chicago rapper Fredo Santana headlining (and making his NYC debut at the show) and Young Gleesh. Tickets for that show are on sale now.
Updated A$AP Ferg dates are listed, along with the new video and contest details, below...
Klaus-favorite and all around awesome dude Scott Rogowsky has a recurring live late-night-talk-show-formatted show called Running Late With Scott Rogowsky. Running Late is one of NYC's only live talk shows and combines the traditional, familiar late-night format; sidekick (his dad Marty), monologue, house band, sketches, celebrity interviews etc. It's got a real old school Johnny Carson-esque vibe to it, and each installment features some pretty top-shelf, super-famous talent. Scott currently has two Running Lates on his radar. The first happens TONIGHT (12/4) at Symphony Space and features television icon Regis Philbin, along with Lizz Winstead (The Daily Show co-creator and former head writer), comedian Michael Kosta (The Tonight Show, Conan) and Scott Wiener (Scott's Pizza Tours). The show takes place at 8:30 PM and there are a handful of tickets left.
On December 18, Running Late will head into Brooklyn to the more intimate confines of Littlefield where he will be joined by Amber Tamblyn (Joan of Arcadia, Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants), actor Josh Pais, as well as Simon Rich and Farley Katz (authors of The Married Kama Sutra: The World's Least Erotic Sex Manual). Tickets are currently available. Get em while they're hot!
