Idlewild's U.S. tour cancelled due to guitarist injury

Idlewild’s U.S. tour cancelled due to guitarist injury. Idlewild’s U.S. tour dates have been cancelled due to an injury to Rod Jones. The guitarist recently broke his collarbone in an unfortunate accident and is unable to perform. “Myself and the rest of the band are absolutely gutted that we won’t be able to do these shows at this time,” Jones said. “I know this is a disappointment to some of you who have been patiently waiting for five years to see us there and it is a feeling we share with you as a band. Again I’d like to extend my sincere and heartfelt apologies and hope to see you some time in the near future.” The revered Scottish folk-punk outfit was due to make their long-awaited return to the U.S. to perform shows on the East and West Coasts in support of their recently released sixth studio LP, Post Electric Blues. The album is currently available via the Nice Music Group.

OK GO release another classic video

OK GO release another classic video. Internet savvy indie-poppers OK Go have done it again, with another creative clip. The Chicago band have made an entire career out of hugely entertaining videos, beginning with their classic treadmill clip for ‘Here It Goes Again’ to the Marching Band and single-shot Rube Goldberg extravaganza for ‘This Too Shall Pass’. For the fourth single from their third album Of The Blue Of The Colour Of The Sky, ‘White Knuckles’ they’ve done another single-take clip, not as complicated by far more cute. Bringing together two of the internet’s favourite things ‘ cup-stacking and dog tricks ‘ the band hop around, lip-synching the tune amongst the almost unbearable cuteness of trained pups. Check it out below, if you haven’t already been inundated with it by your friends on email, Facebook or twitter.
