Today's Music News: A Skateboarder, Satire, and "Sleep Walk"

Posted by on Fri, Jan 31, 2014 at 2:10 PM

Black Flag 4.0: The most recent reincarnation of Black Flag will now be fronted by Mike Vallely, the professional skateboarder and Tony Hawk Underground character that teaches you the Flamingo Trick!

Satirizing Incarceration?: In strange pairing news, for their North American TV debut, Pussy Riot members Nadya and Masha will be appearing on the Colbert Report on February 4th.

Stop the Presses!: Alex Kapranos (of Franz Ferdinand, duh) has directed an accusatory tweet at Pharrell, implying that Pharrell stole his riff from "Take Me Out" and used it for a new Paloma Faith single that he produced. Also: compulsory mention of Pharrell's gigantic hat at the Grammy's.

Great Scott!: Set to coincide with the 30-year anniversary of Back to the Future, Robert Zemeckis has announced he is working on a stage musical of the film.

And the Crowd Goes Wildish: The Red Hot Chili Peppers have announced they will be joining Bruno Mars for his halftime show at the Superbowl. Furthermore, this parody is funnier than it isn't.

You Slay Me: Please enjoy this tumblr solely dedicated to metal albums with googly eyes pasted on them.

Dude York just released their 10-track album, Dehumanize, on Help Yourself Records - the toughest little label that could. Here's their song "Sleep Walk," equal parts shambolic and sharp twee.
