Adam Lambert, Katy Perry Headline “Y100 Jingle Ball” Concert.  Y100, Miami’s biggest music station and one of the most popular in the country, has assembled the year’s biggest radio chart-toppers for this year’s “2010 Y100 Jingle Ball.” This year’s show will feature headliners Katy Perry and Adam Lambert, among others. Katy Perry is sure to perform some of her biggest hits from her new “Teenage Dream” album, including the #1 title track and “California Gurls.” She last performed at the Y100 “Jingle Ball” in 2008, in support of her “One of the Boys” album. The “Jingle Ball” is just one of the many appearances she has lined up this year before she kicks off her “California Dreams” world tour in February. Adam Lambert is currently on his own successful world tour in support of his “For Your Entertainment” album. He’ll take the stage in South Florida for the second time in less than three months as part of the “Jingle Ball,” and by popular demand too. He was #1 on the radio station’s poll as to who listeners wanted to see at the show. He hosted last year’s “Y100 Jingle Ball” along with “Gossip Girl” star Leighton Meester, but did not perform. Selena Gomez will take the stage for the first time to perform hits from her album “A Year Without Rain,” while B.o.B. will also make his “Jingle Ball” debut performing his smash debut singles from this year, including “Airplanes” with Hayley Williams and “Nothin’ On You” with Bruno Mars. Taio Cruz also makes his first “Jingle Ball” appearance, thanks to his hit singles off his “Rokstarr” album, including the #1 “Break Your Heart” and “Dynamite.” Jay Sean is also “Down” for the party for the first time, sure to party like its “2012.” Flo Rida returns for another year, having performed at last year’s concert, while Enrique Iglesias makes his return to the “Jingle Ball” this year. Train and The Script, offering some much-need rock sounds to the proceedings, will also perform. Tickets for the 2010 “Y100 Jingle Ball” are currently in pre-sales and will go on sale to the general public this weekend.

Paramore to release ‘Brick By Boring Brick’

ParamoreParamoreFueled By Ramen recording group Paramore are set to release the single Brick By Boring Brick in the UK on November 23. This track is taken from their third album ‘brand new eyes’, which is out now.   Hayley Williams (vocals) explains, ‘Brick By Boring Brick is about not accepting reality and understanding that you don’t have to make everything frilly or pretty-sounding for it to be interesting. Life doesn’t have to be some grand production, and some of the boring parts of being alive are Continue reading →

Paramore preps ‘brand new’ release

paramoreParamore is preparing to release its third album, “brand new eyes” on Sept. 29 via Fueled By Ramen. The Nashville group – who sounds nothing like Nasheville — tapped superstar producer Rob Cavallo (Green Day, Kid Rock, My Chemical Romance) to man the decks.  The set’s first single “Ignorance” will be released to radio at the beginning of next month and will go up for sale on iTunes, Amazon and all other digital stores on July 7. Pre-sales for the record also goes up on July 7 via the band’s website.  “brand new eyes” will be released as a normal CD as well as a doozy of a deluxe version, limited to 15,000, which “includes the album on CD, a 40-page hardcover journal with Paramore frontwoman Hayley Williams’ handwritten lyrics and notes on the album, a color vinyl 7″ single with four acoustic songs, a DVD featuring an exclusive making-of documentary (with interviews, behind-the-scenes footage, the ‘Ignorance’ music video and making-the-video footage, plus rare band vignettes from www.paramore.net), a 16-page full-color booklet, an exclusive Paramore poster, five limited edition collectible Paramore photos printed on hardstock paper, and a numbered certificate of authenticity” according to a release from Atlantic. Whoosh.  “brand new eyes” is the follow-up to Paramore’s breakthrough set “RIOT!,” released in 2007. The group gained even more exposure as its track “Decode” was included on the soundtrack to “Twilight.” However, as the band told Billboard, fans shouldn’t expect any Paramore songs on the “New Moon” soundtrack.  “We don’t want to be, like, the vampire house band,” drummer Zac Farro explains. “It was really fun to be a part of that, and great exposure, but I think ‘Twilight’ was it for us. We don’t want to seem like we’re trying to get in every single movie they put out.”  The band has been previewing new material as it has been opening for No Doubt on the road, now through the beginning of August. They are also scheduled to air an “MTV Unplugged” special in September.

Here is the tracklist to “brand new eyes”:
 
1.      Careful
2.      Ignorance
3.      Playing God
4.      Brick By Boring Brick
5.      Turn It Off
6.      The Only Exception
7.      Feeling Sorry
8.      Looking Up
9.      Where The Lines Overlap
10.  Misguided Ghosts
11.  All I Wanted
