Montreal's Elephant Stone have a new album on the way titled Ship of Fools. You can hear a bit of it right now via single "Where I'm Going" which is full-on dance rock, in their distinctly psychedelic way, mind you. Listen below.
Elephant Stone will be on tour in March surrounding their appearance at this year's SXSW. They'll play NYC on the way back from Austin, hitting Baby's All Right on March 20 with Las Rosas and Fascinator. Tickets for that show are on sale now. All tour dates are listed below.

Deftones will release their new album Gore, which follows 2012's Koi No Yokan, on April 8 via Warner Bros. They just debuted its lead single "Prayers/Triangles" on Zane Lowe's BBC show, and it's the kind of soaring heavy rock Deftones excel at, with a pretty damn epic chorus. Listen, along with Zane interviewing Chino Moreno on air, below. Update: The official audio with a visualizer is out now too.
They're also going on tour, including day 2 of Travis Barker's Musink Festival. That day is also with Taking Back Sunday and Epitaph-signed garage punks Plague Vendor. All dates are listed below...

It's official: Parquet Courts' new album is titled Human Performance and will be out April 8 via Rough Trade.

NYC rockers Tournament recently revealed that they're releasing their new album Teenage Creature on March 25 via In The End, and we're now premiering its title track. Unlike the snotty punk single they dropped last year, this one comes closer to swaggering hard rock. It's still got some scuzz in there though. Listen below. You can pre-order the album physical or digital.
They've also got a release show scheduled for April 8 at Shea Stadium with Aneurysm, Desert Sharks and one more TBA.

Beverly have a video for new single "Victoria" from the forthcoming The Blue Swell album. It was made by Jacob Graham who, in addition to playing in The Drums, is a puppeteer and filmmaker -- maybe you know The Creatures of Yes series he does with his brother, Caleb. His low-tech, in-camera effects (which look straight out of 1979 PBS) make for a bewitching effect. Beverly's Drew Citron told Gorilla Vs Bear about why she wanted Jacob for this:
He is the kind of person who puts real tea lights on his christmas tree, and uses electrical tape to make an Ikea cupboard look like 16th century stained glass. All the visual effects for the "Victoria" video were done by hand. A music video doesn't have to have a narrative structure or gimmick - it can just be shapes, colors and moods. We had a lot of fun making this with him in his bedroom, he's a magician.You can watch the "Victoria" video below.
You can catch Beverly live in Brooklyn on Friday (2/5) at Baby's All Right with Wall, MPHO, and Au Revoir Simone's Annie Hart (tickets). Beverly will then be on tour with Lazyeyes starting in March, including stops at the Savannah Stopover, SXSW, and Pickathon. All dates are listed below.

We already learned that Lady Gaga is doing a Bowie tribute at the Grammys this year, and the other rock legend who recently passed away, Lemmy, will get one too. This one includes some people who were a little closer to Lemmy than Gaga was to Bowie. It's by Alice Cooper and his band the Hollywood Vampires, which includes Aerosmith's Joe Perry, Guns N' Roses' Duff McKagan, and Johnny Depp, among others. Alice said to Rolling Stone:
"He was always funny," he continues. "I'm a 'healed' alcoholic and I haven't had anything to drink in 35 years. A lot of people that drink always feel a little bit like they owe an explanation to me. A couple weeks before his death, Lemmy came up to me and said, 'Alice, I've quit drinking.' And he's got a glass in his hand. And I go, 'Really?' And he says, 'Yeah, I don't drink whiskey anymore. I drink vodka.'" Cooper laughs. "And I went, 'Lemmy, do you think your liver has any idea what color the alcohol is?' He said, well it's a step down from whiskey.' And I went, 'OK. Any step's a good step.'" He laughs.The Hollywood Vampires will also make the live debut of their song "As Bad As I Am" at the Grammys. It will be released as a bonus track on the deluxe edition of their 2015 debut that comes out three days before the performance.
Other recently-added Grammys performers include Kendrick Lamar, The Weeknd, Adele, Rihanna, the cast of Hamilton, and a BB King tribute by Chris Stapleton, Gary Clark Jr and Bonnie Raitt.
Alice Cooper is also touring this spring. Listen to the Hollywood Vampires song "My Dead Drunk Friends" below...

You may know Philly harpist Mary Lattimore from her collaborations with Kurt Vile/War on Drugs producer Jeff Zeigler, Kurt Vile himself, Thurston Moore, Chicago metal band Wrekmeister Harmonies, or more. She also used to be in the band The Valerie Project and has various solo recordings. Her newest solo album, At the Dam, comes out March 4 via Ghostly (pre-order). The first single is "Jimmy V," a gorgeous piece of harp-led ambient music. She sort of does with a harp what Noveller does with a guitar. Check it out below.
She has a few shows coming up, including two in NYC. The first is opening the Bowery Ballroom (2/23) stop of Julia Holter's tour this month. Tickets for that show are still available. Then she's got a release show on album release day at Trans-Pecos (3/4) with a pretty cool lineup. It has a collaborative set from Don De Vore, Michael Beharie and Diamond Terrifier with DROODIS (live PA); plus solo sets from MGMT's James Richardson and Trash Talk's Dave Gagliardi. Tickets for that show are on sale now.
Mary also plays a collaborative set with Quilt at Marfa Myths in Texas. All dates are listed, with the new song, below...

The tenth annual J Dilla tribute, Donuts are Forever, happens in NYC on February 13 at Brooklyn Bowl. This year's will be hosted by Jarobi of A Tribe Called Quest, and it also features DJ Spinna, Illa J, Daru Jones & The Ruff Pack and Run P. Tickets are on sale now.

The following week (2/18) is also a special guest veteran, Pete Rock. Other than that, Questlove does his usual thing tonight (2/4) and has more Bowl Trains scheduled through March 31. Tickets for all of them are available.

Prince Rama's new album, Xtreme Now (out 3/4 via Carpark), is a lot of fun, ranging from fizzy dancepop, to punky rockers, to swaying arms anthems. All of it's got Prince Rama's pixie dust on it (it might just be glitter). The latest song to be shared from it is "Slip Into Nevermore," which sounds like something from an '80s fantasy film where flowing-haired maidens ride horseback, racing across a rocky coastline against the sounds of breathlessly strummed acoustic guitars, tom-heavy percussion, sweeping synth strings, and "huh! hah!" accents. (Your interpretation may be different.) You can stream "Slip Into Nevermore" below.
The band play an Xtreme Now release show at Brooklyn's Baby's All Right on March 4. PC Worship are also on the bill and tickets are still available. They'll then be on tour all over North America through April. All dates are listed below.
