Trent Reznor's How to destroy angels release new video for "How long?"

   Trent Reznor's How to destroy angels have released a video for the song "How long?" which will be included on their upcoming album 'Welcome oblivion' which will be released via Columbia March the 5th

   The video for the song is set in some post-apocalyptic world or maybe even an alternate universe, either way its dark, it's bleak and it's evil…and it goes with the track perfectly. Trent Reznor's wife Mariqueen Maandig Reznor is the female vocal and I have to admit her voice just melts my speakers when she sings. She's that good.

 How to destroy angels will make their live debut at this years Coachella.

New Depeche Mode single "Heaven" leaked - Listen Here

   The new Depeche Mode single "Heaven" found its way online today; it was supposed to get its proper release next week. The single is from the album 'Delta Machine' that will see a release date March 26th

Personally I like the B-Side 'All That's Mine' better than the single.

To listen to 'Heaven' and also its B-side, 'All That's Mine', click here:

Now here's the video for "Heaven"

The Strokes Announce New Album

    The Strokes have announced that their new album 'Comedown Machine' will be released on March the 26th via RCA (artwork above). The album's first official single "All The Time" will be released Feb the 19th, the track I posted last week "One Way Trigger" will also be included on the new album.

    After giving "One Way Trigger" a few more listens it occurred to me what other song the beginning reminds me of...A-ha's "Take on me".

   Here's the just released poster for "One Way Trigger" , it's got a real B Movie feel to it.
