The Fling are heading back out on the road on February 29th for a two-week run with Heartless Bastards kicking off with a show at The Southern in Charlottesville, VA and wrapping up March 10th at Warehouse Live in Houston, TX.
The Fling’s debut album, When The Madhouses Appear, received high praise from such outlets as the LA Record, cheers it as “heartfelt and personal,” and KROQ.com “Locals Only” Blog acclaims, “although The Fling certainly exude a nostalgic aura, they simultaneously maintain a sound that is both progressive and unfamiliar.”
The band’s most recent release, the 7-song What I’ve Seen – EP was released in November 2011 to coincide with a massive 44-date full-U.S. tour. Standout tracks “Dogpile” and “Cuz A Good Man’s Hard To Find” have been showing up in hit TV shows Revenge and Parenthood amongst many others in recent weeks.

Butch Walker and The Black Widows new music video for “Synthesizers” features an unlikely guest… Matthew McConaughey portraying his infamous character “Wooderson” from the 1993 film Dazed & Confused.
“To commemorate the 20 year anniversary of the filming and inception of this amazing movie,” Walker says, “we brought a little someone from the film back to be the life of the party for our new video for the song ‘Synthesizers.’ The song lyrics really relate to just about anyone who has a hard time moving on with the changes that life throws at you.”
Butch Walker and The Black Widows new album The Spade is now available everywhere music is sold.

In honor of Amnesty International’s 50 years of human rights activism, Silversun Pickups are proud to join the ranks of esteemed artists like Pete Townshend, Queens of the Stone Age, Maroon 5, and Adele who have contributed to Chimes of Freedom: The Songs of Bob Dylan.
For the compilation, Silversun Pickups covered Bob Dylan’s “Not Dark Yet” – a song originally released on Dylan’s 1997 album Time Out of Mind. The collection is scheduled for both physical (4 discs) and digital release in North America on January 24, 2012.
Through Chimes of Freedom, Amnesty International seeks to enlist support for its fight against censorship and attacks on free speech – whether involving artists, writers, musicians, political activists or bloggers. Supporters looking to purchase the album will also find actions they can take to help individuals whose freedom of expression is under threat.
