Earlier today we mentioned that post-hardcore veteran Walter Schreifels (Gorilla Biscuits, Youth of Today, Quicksand, Rival Schools, etc) would be playing the Iron Pier CMJ showcase (BV co-presents) with his new band The Dead Heavens, along with Self Defense Family and Dee Pockets. That's not the only new band Walter has though. He's also fronting Vanshing Life, for which he's joined by two Trail of Dead members, Jamie Miller and Autry Fulbright, and Rise Against's Zach Blair. Their debut 7", "People Running" b/w "Vanishing Life," is due out October 14 via Collect Records, the label Thursday/United Nations' Geoff Rickly runs with Texas is the Reason's Norman Brannon. Walter's produced a variety of sounds over the years, but so far Vanishing Life is sounding pretty in line with his '90s post-hardcore stuff. Hear it for yourself by streaming the a-side of the new single below.
The band are set to make their live debut on October 18 in New York with two in-stores that day: one at 2 PM at Generation Records in NYC and another at 6 PM at Looney Tunes Records in West Babylon. They'll be playing a brief set and doing a signing at each.

"NEW YORK LOVES AND WILL NEVER FORGET MCA." - El-P
Madison Square Garden pays tribute to Adam (pic via)
Like Coldplay, BADBADNOTGOOD & Bomb The Music Industry!, and Thom Yorke, many, many artists and institutions have been paying tribute to Adam Yauch in their own way, More videos from last night below....

...When Rage Against the Machine lead singer-provocateur Zack de la Rocha stood before 60,000 people, raised his fist, barked out wicked smart, superbly flowed calls to action, pointed out the disparity between rich and poor, spit venom at the billionaires and wondered on their power, the sense of no future that has ignited unrest throughout the world in 2011 felt shockingly, palpably present.The L.A. Rising Festival, which took place on July 30th in Los Angeles at the LA Memorial Coliseum, was organized by the Rage Against The Machine crew. The nine-hour festival featured the band's first appearance in Los Angeles in ten years, as well as sets from Muse, Rise Against, Immortal Technique, El Gran Silencio, and Lauryn Hill, who welcomed her sixth child just last week(!). More pictures from the LA event are below.
...Throughout the hour-and-15-minute set, Rage pulled its weight, proved itself to be one of the only rock bands on Earth able to captivate such a large space. Its conquest was so assured, in fact, that it jumped back in time to render an earlier set moot....
Though singer-guitarist-pianist Matthew Bellamy knows his way around a riff -- he quoted Led Zeppelin, AC/DC, the Animals and others during breaks between songs -- [Muse] makes form-over-function rock, these architecturally grandiose musical structures that are as perfectly crafted as they are grooveless. Muse's fan base no doubt disagrees; The thousands sang along to every lyrical cliché and gymnastic bridge, followed the band down every meandering path; when huge balloons were floated out into the crowd as the band meandered on, they bounced throughout the Coliseum until they exploded and dropped confetti.

"First came the rain on Friday, then the heat on Saturday. But Lollapalooza breeds a hearty stock, so with slip 'n slides, togas and giant Chinese peasant hats in tow, out came the 70,000-plus for another day of music that was capped by fill-in headliners the Yeah Yeah Yeahs and doomy metal icons Tool.No that isn't an All Points West review. More pictures from the second day of this year's Lollapalooza festival, below...
Taking the place of the Beastie Boys, who had to drop out several weeks ago due to MC Adam Yauch's bout with cancer of the salivary gland, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs brought their always-colorful A-game, led, as usual, by fashion-forward singer Karen O, who took the stage in a kaleidoscopic, towering bird costume. Down on the south end, things couldn't have looked and sounded any more different, as Tool singer Maynard James Keenan stripped down to a pair of black workout shorts and moaned the lyrics to his band's turgid D&D metal as giant H.R. Giger-like images of giant bugs and morphing aliens were projected on the big screens." [MTV]
"Though promoters around the country report strong early ticket sales for festivals and summer tours, the recession is causing jitters. This year Coachella, which has the most glamorous reputation of all American festivals, began selling tickets on layaway, and 18 percent of its customers took that option, Mr. Tollett said.With all the leaks of bands playing Lollapalooza this year, there are almost no surprises in the official lineup announcement, except maybe the Animal Collective DJ set... The whole thing below...
The proliferation of big festivals, like Bonnaroo near Nashville and Lollapalooza in Chicago, has not been without casualties. This year Langerado in Miami shut down, citing the economy. The Pemberton Festival in British Columbia is on hiatus after only one year, although its promoter, Live Nation, said the problem was permit delays." [NY Times]
