Patrick Stump Denies Fall Out Boy Reunion Rumors

Yesterday afternoon, the earth saw a brief shift as Fall Out Boy fans spent a few joy filled hours jumping up and down at Insider employee Keltie Colleen’s Twitter announcement that the band was writing new material.  Patrick Stump, no stranger to reunion rumors, quickly put an end to that, stating that “One of these days there may actually be news and you won’t be able to hear it over all the rumors. That’s no disrespect to @Keltiecolleen btw. She’s awesome.”

Fans may remember back in August, Stump was confronted with the same rumor, from blessthefall’s Beau Bokan. While Bokan claimed that sources had confirmed Fall Out Boy were writing a new album, when questioned by a fan, Stump simply responded, “Another day, another rumor.”

Hang in there, Fall Out Boy fans.

Is The Postal Service Going To Deliver Another Album Any Time Soon? Don’t “Hold Your Breath,” Says Gibbard

Has it really been ten years since the release of Give Up, the debut album from electronic duo The Postal Service? Not quite, but it will be in about five months. Wow, I’m getting old.

So when can nostalgics and fans of fey indie rock/electronic music expect a followup from the group comprised of Death Cab For Cutie frontman Ben Gibbard and Jimmy Tamborello aka Dntel? Probably not for a long time, if ever.

In a recent interview with Spinner, Gibbard stressed that while he enjoyed composing and creating with Tamborello as The Postal Service, the whole electronic music production thing just isn’t his bag, man.

Prince Performs New Single On ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live’

Supported by a massive backing band, Prince took to the outdoor stage on Jimmy Kimmel Live last night to play his funky new single “Rock ‘n’ Roll Love Affair.” Honky–tonk piano, swelling horn lines and bluesy guitar lines sizzle throughout the bluesy rock tune. With Prince’s noted aversion to YouTube, who knows how long this clip might stay online, so check it out while it lasts.

Prince isn’t the only funk rocker to perform on the Kimmel stage recently, though. OurStage’s own Eclectic Approach took the show by storm with their fiery performance on October 1st. The band was the first featured OurStage act to play on Kimmel after being selected from the OurStage Panel Competition. Check out some backstage footage of the band before their Kimmel performance and keep your eyes peeled for more performances from OurStage acts coming up on the show!

Taylor Swift Live On Good Morning America

With all the buzz surrounding her latest album, Red, it’s no surprise that Taylor Swift has been a constant presence in our newsfeed. Early yesterday morning, Swift threw on her warmest show clothes and headed out to the middle of Times Square to perform on Good Morning America.

Beginning with her latest success “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together,” Swift led straight into “Red” before finishing off the performance with her breakout hit, “Love Story.”

Speaking on Good Morning America, Swift said:

“I think for me, the music is my way of understanding what I’m feeling,” she says. “It’s kind of carried me my whole life and allowed me to filter through really complicated emotions and make them simple.”

Taylor, Titus, And ‘Tasha – New Releases For October 23

What’s not to love about Tuesdays? You get to listen to a bunch of great new albums, and it’s not Monday anymore. That enough is cause for celebration. This week’s slate of new releases is especially diverse, and gives fans of almost every genre something great to spin.

Taylor SwiftRed

If at first, you hated “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together,” then you started humming it absentmindedly in the supermarket aisle, and then you found it taking over every waking thought, you’re not alone. Every successive single released from Red has nestled itself into the deepest recesses of our minds like a musical laser beam of pure studio magic. Red could be Swift’s most blatantly poppy, and best, album yet.

Kendrick Lamar – good kid, m.A.A.d city

Indie whiz kid Kendrick Lamar’s major label debut is a stunner. A cohesive rap album with a unified concept that doesn’t get bogged down in its own storytelling, good kid, m.A.A.d city features Lamar spitting beautifully rhymed off–kilter verses complemented by an all–star guest list that features Drake, Dr. Dre, production by Pharrell, Hit Boy, and more.

Bat For Lashes The Haunted Man

Bat For Lashes’ first album in three years showcases a new set of moody chamber ballads from singer Natasha Khan. Dark synths shiver and glitchy beats pop behind Khan’s lyrical journeys into the shadows of her own psyche. Impossibly compelling and intricately composed, the songs on The Haunted Man demand repeated listens.

Further Seems Forever – Penny Black

Further Seems Forever make their triumphant return with original singer Chris Carrabba, and the result is everything that fans have been waiting for since the release of The Moon Is Down more than ten years ago. The band has never sounded more cohesive or confident, and Carrabba’s vocals soar high over a tangle of rhythmically dense guitar work. It’s emo all grown up.

Titus AndronicusLocal Business

Scrappy Jersey punks Titus Andronicus have already made a concept album about the Civil War, so it only makes sense that their newest effort is a little bit closer to home. Local Business details the band’s personal trials – sometimes in an intensely honest way, as on “My Eating Disorder” – to brash and strident success. This one’s meant to be played loud.

This isn’t the first time something like this has happened, and it likely won’t be the last. In the digital age, where we can have anything we want at the click of a button, Taylor Swift fans are learning that isn’t always the case.

Swift and her management have “made a decision not to make her new album available to Rhapsody’s million-plus subscribers for several months” causing quite the uproar among fans. With intent to remedy the situation, Sr. Director of Content Programming, Garrett Kamps has initiated the #WheresTaylor hashtag on Twitter, in the hopes that Swift can be swayed. Kamps says he is urging users to “post and Tweet and comment… (and) let Taylor know how much it would mean to all of us to have her latest on Rhapsody”. Check out more after the jump.

X Factor Renewed For Third Season

I can’t imagine a better way for reality TV junkies to start their Tuesday morning other than reveling in the recently confirmed news that FOX’s X Factor will be returning for a third season.

Though it is still unclear if Britney Spears or Demi Lovato will be back for the third season, FOX’s alternative entertainment president Mike Darnell made a few comments, which seemed to indicate a favorable push towards the two.

“The format changes are working, the contestants are unbelievably talented, and Britney and Demi — alongside Simon and L.A. Reid — have brought an incredibly fun new chemistry to the judges’ panel that our fans really love.”

Also weighing in on the renewal was everyone’s favorite love to hate him judge, Simon Cowell.

“I couldn’t be happier about The X Factor already being renewed for another season,” Cowell said, “I am so proud of the show and the team who have made it this season. I want to thank our incredible sponsors for their support and creativity, and FOX for going out of their way to do everything they can to make this show a success. Most importantly, I have to personally thank our amazing fans for the support and enthusiasm they have given to The X Factor. Our main commitment will always be to find great talent, and let’s not forget, we are now days away from our first live shows. The gloves are off! Expect fireworks!”

Of the four other women to boast this same triumph, Aretha Franklin was the quickest to reach 50 entries into the chart, taking just over 14.5 years.
