2CELLOS premier new video for Welcome To The Jungle

by on Jun.06, 2011, under news

Luka Sulic and Stjepan Hauser, the 24 year-old Ukranian duo known as 2CELLOS became an overnight internet sensation with their self-made music video of themselves performing Michael Jackson‘s “Smooth Criminal” on their cellos. With “Smooth Criminal” racking up over 5 million views on YouTube, Sulic and Hauser have premiered the video for the next 2CELLOS single on VEVO: A rocking rendition of the Guns N’ Roses worldwide hit, “Welcome to the Jungle.”

Of the new single Sulic says: “Covering “Welcome to the Jungle” was a real challenge but that one we were up for! We chose this song because we thought that it could sound like a whole symphony using only our 2 cellos. We’re really proud of it and think it rocks!”

The 2CELLOS debut self-titled album will be released this summer on July 19th via Sony Masterworks, and the duo will kick off a European summer tour opening for Elton John on June 8th at Cardiff International Arena in Wales.

2CELLOS is now available for pre-order on the 2CELLOS website. Each pre-order of the CD comes with a free 11″ x 17″ poster/calendar. An instant MP3 download of “Smooth Criminal” will be included with pre-order of either the CD or MP3 version of the album. The debut album features Sulic & Hauser‘s unique spin on hits by Guns N’ Roses, U2, Coldplay and Kings of Leon among others.

We grew up with Michael Jackson, U2 and Nirvana. The melody and structure of their songs really inspired us to arrange them for 2 cellos. Bands like Coldplay, Kings of Leon and Muse also write songs with those similar melodic qualities – so we had a great time digging in and making them part of this album too,” says Luka Sulic.

2CELLOS Tracklisting:
1. Where The Streets Have No Name (U2)
2. Miserlou / Pulp Fiction Theme (Dick Dale)
3. Use Somebody (Kings of Leon)
4. Smooth Criminal (Michael Jackson)
5. Fragile (Sting)

FOO FIGHTERS’ Dave Grohl says ‘Fuck No’ to Glee

by on Mar.18, 2011, under editorials, news

From The Hollywood Reporter:

Don’t count on hearing the Foo Fighters hit “Times Like These” on Glee anytime soon. Frontman Dave Grohl says he and his bandmates are squarely in the corner of Kings of Leon and Slash. As in, they want no part of the Ryan Murphy-helmed show.

It’s every band’s right, you shouldn’t have to do fucking Glee,” Grohl told THR following the premiere of Foo Fighters: Back and Forth, the new Foo Fighters documentary which just made its South By Southwest debut. “And then the guy who created Glee is so offended that we’re not, like, begging to be on his fucking show… fuck that guy for thinking anybody and everybody should want to do Glee.

Read the rest of the story here.

***EDITOR’S NOTE:
Fight for your right to rock. On YOUR terms. I am not the biggest Foo Fighters fan, in fact I think their best songs are covers of Prince and Gerry Rafferty. But I respect their right to put out their music and control it as they see fit (I also backed Metallica in the Napster fiasco). So have a little tact (yeah I know, Me calling the kettle black) Mr. Murphy and don’t talk shit about the bands that don’t want to give you the rights to their music. You sense of entitlement little prick. Hello Kettle!

THE BLACK KEYS announce new tour dates

by on May.27, 2010, under news

With the duo’s sixth studio album totally kicking butt on the charts, The Black Keys are gearing up to hit the road for a slew of headlining shows, festival appearances and dates in support of Kings Of Leon.
Brothers was released May 18. The album racked up over 73,000 copies sold in the first week, making it the No.2 on Nielsen Soundscan’s Current Albums Chart, the No.1 Alternative album and No.2 overall digital album.
For the most part, the album was produced by singer/guitarist Dan Auerbach and drummer Patrick Carney. Danger Mouse, who produced the blues-rock band’s 2008 album Attack & Release, once again stepped in to produce the Brothers single “Tighten Up.”

Although The Black Keys may be opening for Kings Of Leon this fall, Seattle Weekly raves that the new album proves “that it’s they not the Lords Of Leon, who deserve to be Kings. It’s nothing short of a bold proclamation that they’re one of the most vital bands on earth, and Brothers is sure to go down as one of the best albums of 2010.” The paper noted that in addition to giving the Kings some competition, Brothers includes many moments where the duo “out-Winehouse Amy, out-Lynyrd Skynyrd, out-Roll the Stones [and] drive right by the Truckers.Entertainment Weekly gave the album a “B+” for its “real songwriting, and real hooks” and USA Today rates Brothers “3 1/2 stars” for hitting “all the right notes.”
