The Cure – “The Love Cats”

To continue their celebration of being The Cure for 40 years, the band will be releasing a limited edition box set on October 18th that highlights two of their recent concerts. 40 Live Curaetion 25 + Anniversary gathers two of their concert films, Curaetion-25: From There To Here | From Here To There, which is from their final night at Meltdown Festival last year, and Anniversary: 1978-2018 Live In Hyde Park London, which celebrated the band’s 40th anniversary concert in London’s Hyde Park last summer.
 

Devo – “Whip It”

Devo has announced a gig at Desert Daze festival, which was advertised as part of their “farewell tour.” After shocking fans, Devo revealed that the news of a “farewell tour” is false. “#1 If we were going to do a farewell tour we would not call it a farewell tour,” Devo bassist Jerry Casale emailed to Rolling Stone. “#2 If we were going to do a Beginning Was The End tour it would be Devo choosing when and were to make the announcement.”
 

L7 – “Pretend We’re Dead”

At the end of July, L7 released a video for “Holding Pattern,” which comes packed with gritty, psychedelic footage of the band. “‘Holding Pattern’ is a song about being stuck, caught in a loop of stagnation either by fate or psychological paralysis, or both,” singer and guitarist Donita Sparks explained in a statement. “I’ve been there a few times and it’s depressing and frustrating. Lyrically, this is a pep talk to my soul from the fairly incompetent life coach that lives in my brain to get things moving forward in a positive manner.”
 

Johnny Cash – I Walk The Line

Nashville recently got a new restaurant and live music venue that honours music legend Johnny Cash and June Carter. Johnny Cash’s Kitchen & Saloon is located on Honky Tonk row is an ode to Cash’s persona. “It extends way beyond the music,” designer Bill Miller, a longtime friend of Cash, explains to Forbes. “It’s all about the person, the human being. When you walk in here, it’s like walking into June and Johnny’s home.”
