NEWS BITS
  • New Jersey punk band the Gaslight Anthem announced Wednesday that the group will go on an indefinite hiatus following their current European tour. "We're all going to do other projects and stay active in some way or another, both in and out of music, but we'd like to step away from the band until we decide what we'd like to do next," Gaslight Anthem wrote on Facebook. Brian Fallon and company first emerged on the scene with their 2007 debut Sink or Swim, but broke through the following year with their second LP The '59 Sound. The Gaslight Anthem were frequently compared to another Jersey native – Bruce Springsteen – and in 2009, they were recruited to open up for Springsteen in London. Springsteen and Gaslight Anthem also appeared during each other's sets at the 2009 Glastonbury Festival. --- rollingstone

  • Purple Pyramid Records has announced that they will release an archive concert by Greg Lake from 1981 on August 7. Greg Lake, London 1981 features ELP and King Crimson classic tracks such as Lucky Man, Karn Evil 9, 21st Century Schizoid Man and In The Court of The Crimson King, as well as songs from his critically acclaimed first solo album from 1981. The Greg Lake Band made its live debut on one of the biggest stages available to it, the annual Reading Festival in England in August 1981. Much of the set was new to the audience – Greg's first solo album would not be released for another month. But the band received a wild reception regardless, and there were enough old favorites on display to ensure the fans remained happy…including the show opener Fanfare for the Common Man, truly one of the most effective showstoppers ever to have opened a concert. The band's full tour kicked off in October. Purposefully, Lake demanded smaller venues, the theaters and universities that truly represented a refreshing change from the monster domes he'd visited the last time he hit the road in 1977 with ELP. The last date on the tour is where this disc was recorded, in front of 2,000 fans who now had every note of Greg's new album memorized, and the rest of the set firmly entrenched in their DNA. --- VVN

  • Keith Richards: Under the Influence, a new documentary about the Rolling Stones guitarist, will premiere via Netflix on September 18th. Filmmaker Morgan Neville, who recently won a "Best Documentary" Oscar for a documentary about backup singers called 20 Feet From Stardom and who directed Richards' recent "Trouble" music video, directed the film. Producers are promising an "unprecedented look" at Richards' influences, songwriting process and guitar playing in the documentary. The film, which was made as Richards prepared his first solo record in over two decades – Crosseyed Heart, due out the same day as the movie – culls from interviews, archival material and footage of him recording new music. --- rollingstone

  • Ed Sheeran's three sold-out nights at the historic Wembley Stadium in July were documented for an hour-long special to air on NBC this August. Ed Sheeran – Live at Wembley Stadium will take viewers behind the scenes and show footage from the massive run. Along with clips of Sheeran performing his own singles, the special will also feature a duet between the singer and Elton John. John joined Sheeran at one of the gigs to perform the veteran performer's classic "Don't Go Breaking My Heart" and Sheeran's own "Afire Love." John had previously joined Sheeran at the Grammy Awards in 2013 to perform "The A-Team" together. --- rollingstone

  • The black wool double-breasted suit jacket that Ringo Starr wore in the 1965 Beatles movie Help! has sold at auction for more than $46,500.

  • MTV Is trying to reinvent itself to combat sinking ratings and disinterested teens. During MTV’s annual upfront presentation, the channel that introduced the world to Jackass and Snooki put something onscreen that shocked even a jaded audience of advertising executives: elves. Specifically, MTV showed a trailer for The Shannara Chronicles, its lavish TV adaptation of a series of swords-and-sorcery novels by Terry Brooks, which will premiere in January 2016. Filmed in New Zealand and filled with medieval costumes, Shannara looks more like the Lord of the Rings movies than anything on MTV, and it has the budget to match — it’s the most expensive series the channel has ever made, according to an executive. --- Billboard
