Welcome back to The Rock Show, where it’s all about the music!
Paramore has announced a tempting offer – by joining their “Singles Club,” you’ll be able to receive three new singles (ha! I get it!) between now and the end of the year. The three singles are “In the Mourning,” “Renegade,” and one we’ve never heard anything about before – “Hello Cold World.” The band’s website has all the details (link). Apparently this will be the only way to get your hands on these singles before the new album comes out (supposedly next year) – interesting marketing strategy. I’m not sure if I’m impatient enough for this, as I tend to avoid signing up for fanclubs and such. I’ll probably just wait for the new album.
Speaking of singles, Pearl Jam’s “Ole” is the free download of the week on iTunes this week. Of course, the band hosted the song on their own website for free download for a while (though I can’t tell if it’s still available). What this means, though, is that “Ole” is actually being released as an official single. That’s all well and good – I’m still keeping my ears peeled for news on the new album.
Also, as an FYI, since Lehigh’s Pacing Break is over, expect The Rock Show to be back on the air this Sunday from 3pm to 5pm. Tune in on 91.3 FM WLVR Bethlehem, or stream live at www.wlvr.org. Listen for the new Coheed tune, something off Orianthi’s brand new EP, some new Steven Wilson, and much more!
