New Order – “Blue Monday”

The first trailer for Wonder Woman 1984 has arrived, and it’s soundtracked by New Order’s 1982 hit, “Blue Monday.” While the original Wonder Woman film takes place in World War I, the trailer for the sequel previews a fast forward to 1984, as Gal Gadot makes her return as Wonder Woman and Chris Pine somehow returns as Steve Trevor. Watch the trailer here.
 

Pixies – “Wave of Mutilation”

The Pixies performed in Toronto this past Thursday night, where they played a balance of classics in addition to some catchy new hits. While out promoting their latest album, Beneath The Eyrie, which dropped on September 13th, the renowned band stopped by the Phoenix Concert Theatre to deliver an unbelievable performance.
 

Talking Heads – “Psycho Killer”

On Monday, Talking Heads finally joined social media after an official Instagram account for the band appeared online. The account has yet to share a post, and it has not yet been given Instagram’s coveted blue check mark, but @talkingheadsofficial already has a whopping 10,000 followers. In two days, the account exploded, and even garnered a follow from Jerry Harrison, the band’s former keys player. Could they be making their return?
 

The Cure – “Pictures of You”

The Cure have released a new Director’s Cut of their 30th anniversary performance of Disintegration at the Sydney Opera House. The footage from British filmmaker Nick Wickham was recorded during the live stream of their fifth and final Vivid LIVE performance on May 30th, and it features clips of “Plainsong,” “Pictures of You,” and “Disintegration.” The rest of the performance should be on its way soon, as The Cure frontman Robert Smith explains that it “can’t be too far away.” Watch the clips here.
