Daily Round-Up For March 28, 2014
Hello there pretty people! Welcome to the Daily Round-Up, redOrbit’s one and only destination for all of the latest, greatest, most interesting, and most awesome music news of the day. Let’s dive right in to the headlines.
Devo has announced a new set of tour dates for 2014. The band will hit several dates in the United States throughout June and July. You can check out the full list of dates back at Consequence of Sound.
Moby has been sued for copyright infringement over the use of some alleged unlicensed samples from 1992. The label targeting the producer also sued Madonna a few months ago. You can check out the full story back at Dancing Astronaut.
Little Dragon has revealed a bunch of new tour dates for the 2014 summer season. Their tour will take them all over the United States, including a couple of spots at the Coachella Music Festival.
A brand new Billboard chart is being developed that will work closely with Twitter to determine the most popular and most discussed songs on the popular social network. This will hopefully be a shot in the arm to the Twitter Music department, after their app #music closed down for good earlier this month. The full story is back at The Verge.
Against Me! has also announced a new batch of tour dates for 2014. You can check out the full list of dates back at Consequence of Sound.
Pharrell Williams has followed in the footsteps of Katy Perry, Kanye West, and a multitude of athletes in signing a deal with Adidas. What he plans to do in concert with the company remains to be seen. Check out the full story back at 2dopeboyz.
In news that has certainly made every punk rock fan in the world drool today, apparently Cloud Nothings and Wavves have recorded an album together. It’s safe to say that everyone and their mother wants to hear what this album will sound like, but for now we’ll just have to settle for bits of information and speculation. Check out the full story back at Consequence of Sound.
And if you’re a college kid in need of more music, then it’s your lucky day. Spotify has announced that they are joining rival service Rdio in slashing prices for their premium service for college students, from $10 per month to $5. Check out the full story back at Dancing Astronaut.
