  • 3:19 pm Thursday, February 16th, 2017 by Kyle T- Street Team

This image from Republic Records was leaked earlier today, and it is quickly making its way around the internet.

According to this, we will have new music from Lorde on March 7th. Whether it’s a full album or just a single, the image doesn’t make it clear enough to discern. Either way it looks quite promising. Could this image be fake? Of course. Is it? Probably not. Here’s why:

Lorde has been teasing a new album on social media since last November. One of the most obvious tweets was this…

She also posted a very personal note to Facebook on her birthday last [More]

INTERVIEW: Adam from X Ambassadors

  • 2:44 pm Sunday, June 12th, 2016 by Joel

Flying by the seat of our pants backstage at Bonnaroo! We were about to leave and grab some lunch – I still haven’t had an amish donut during my time on the farm – when we got word that a couple of the guys from X Ambassadors would be dropping by Radio Roo in the next few minutes! Well, my amish donut fix can wait if it means I’m delivering the goods for you fine people.

X Ambassadors drummer Adam Levin sat down. He snapchatted us while we Facebook Live-d him – because these are the times we live in – then [More]

Pearl Jam outlasts a weather delay at Bonnaroo 2016 Day 3

  • 12:58 pm Sunday, June 12th, 2016 by Joel

One tiny severe weather cell just grazing The Farm’s perimeter with light rain but peppering nearby areas with lightning was enough to shut down Bonnaroo for about 90 minutes on Saturday evening. Most sets were shifted back and performed in full by the affected artists, and some acts such as Macklemore and Ryan Lewis picked up exactly where they left off.

“Waiting is the hardest part,” Pearl Jam frontman Eddie Vedder joked as he thanked the crowd for their patience during the weather delay between set opener “Go” and “Save You.” Considering they played”Corduroy” just after, Vedder missed an opportunity to [More]

Two Door Cinema Club frontman Alex Trimble joined us a few hours prior to their Saturday afternoon Bonnaroo 2016 performance. They’re road testing a couple new songs which they’ll play tonight, both of which are likely to be released online as singles over the next couple of weeks, with a long-awaited third full-length record in the can and waiting for release hopefully be the end of the year.

INTERVIEW: Lauren Mayberry of CHVRCHES

  • 2:02 pm Saturday, June 11th, 2016 by Joel

A few hours prior to CHVRCHES incredible set on Bonnaroo’s massive What Stage, CHVRCHES frontwoman Lauren Mayberry swung by the Radio Roo backstage compound for a quick chat. I interviewed Lauren almost exactly two years prior, when CHVRCHES played The Other Tent also on a Friday. We converse about the growth of the band over those two years, Lauren’s outspoken internet persona in dealing with trolls and misogyny, and the re-worked Every Open Eye track “Bury It” that now features Hayley Williams from Paramore on guest vocals. The song just premiered on Thursday, and with Bonnaroo happening in Tennessee (Paramore’s home state), [More]
