Los Angeles outfit The Neighbourhood announce June & July tour dates following their debut appearance at Central Park’s Summerstage on May 20th, 2014. Supports acts for The El Tour Blanco will be Danny Brown, Travis Scott, 100s & White Arrows. The band will embark on their summer tour beginning on June 21 in Vancouver and running through July.
During the band’s worldwide tour, they unveiled new single “Honest,” part of The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Original Motion Picture Soundtrack (out April 22). You can listen to the track HERE and watch the accompanying Lyric video . The film’s epic score was composed by Oscar®- and Grammy-winning composer Hans Zimmer and The Magnificent Six.
The Neighbourhood’s new project “#000000 & #FFFFFF” will be out later this year. Vocalist Jesse Rutherford says about the album, “”#000000 & #FFFFFF is a diary of songs that are inspired by our thoughts while on the road. It exposes our anxiety, rejoices in our achievement and expresses our ability to create whatever the fuck we want. It’s our freedom to explore popular music as we know it. It’s not us as a band… it’s us as a sound.”
Three tracks are available now, listen at Live Mixtapes.

The Los Angeles Alt-Rock Powerhouse Releases New EP
Featuring the FREE Track: “Glad You’re Here Now”
For the past few years, the independent Los Angeles rock band Cosmic Suckerpunch has set the Hollywood concert circuit ablaze with their spine tingling guitar licks, satirical lyrics and jaw dropping performances. Now fresh off a successful Spring Tour, which included four shows at SXSW 2013, they have just been added to the inaugural Life is Beautiful festival in Las Vegas with headliners The Killers, Kings of Leon and Beck.
When the nominations for the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame were first announced I had mixed emotions but, in an effort to be positive, wanting to make the most of things for the fans and with their enthusiasm, I was honored, excited and hoped that somehow this would be a good thing. Of course I realized as things stood, if Guns N’ Roses were to be inducted it’d be somewhat of a complicated or awkward situation.
Since then we’ve listened to fans, talked with members of the board of the Hall Of Fame, communicated with and read various public comments and jabs from former members of Guns N’ Roses, had discussions with the president of the Hall Of Fame, read various press (some legit, some contrived) and read other artists’ comments weighing in publicly on Guns and the Hall with their thoughts.

The last month has been hard on Brewery owner Tom Taylor. What seemed like a bad dream for music lovers became a sad reality as we learned that one of Raleigh’s most treasured music venues was to be torn down to make room for yet another drug store and parking garage that already litter downtown Raleigh. While everyone heard their own version of how the story went, we here at Rock-Wire wanted to set the record straight. We recently had the chance to talk with long time Brewery owner Tom Taylor, who told us exactly how it all happened, shares some of his favorite memories, and also lets us know if The Brewery will ever re-open in the future: Read the rest of this entry
