                 Depeche Mode has been performing a cover of David Bowie’s “Heroes” on its Global Spirit Tour for the past several months, and today the group released a music video for a studio version of the cut in honor of the iconic song’s 40th anniversary. Of the song, frontman Dave Gahan tells the NME: “’Heroes’ is the most special song to me at the moment. Bowie is the one artist who I’ve stuck with since I was in my early teens. His albums are always my go-to on tour and covering ‘Heroes’ is paying homage to Bowie.” Check out the full video below.

    Iconic noise-rock act The Jesus Lizard will come together this December to play its first concert since its 2009 reunion tour, joining Nine Inch Nails, Radiohead’s Thom Yorke, Solange, St. Vincent, Laurie Anderson and more on the bill of the Day For Night Festival in Houston, Texas. The band — formed by Duane Denison, David Yow and David Wm. Sims in Austin, Texas, in 1987 — reunited to play All Tomorrow’s Parties and a subsequent tour in 2009, nearly a decade after the group’s initial break-up. The last concert by the group, which also features drummer Mac McNeilly, was a Dec. 31, 2009, show in Chicago, the city it relocated to shortly after forming in the late ’80s. In a 2012 interview with Rolling Stone, Denison offered his explanation as to why the reunion stopped in 2009. He said he’d implored his bandmates to record new music, but didn’t find enthusiasm for that, and had hoped to tour Australia and Japan, but those opportunities didn’t pan out. Denison told the magazine The Jesus Lizard nearly reunited again for a 2011 festival in Los Angeles, but he refused to do it unless his bandmates agreed to write and play new songs live. “In a way I thought, ‘Well, why spoil it?’ The reunion went so well, but personally I am tired of playing those songs and I don’t wanna play them anymore … I’d be perfectly fine with, ‘Let’s leave it at that, leave it on a good note, we’re all still friends.'” It’s not clear what, if any, plans The Jesus Lizard has beyond performing at the Houston festival, which takes place Dec. 15-17.

                 Peter Murphy has enlisted former bandmate David J to play bass in his band during the final three, Bauhaus-focused nights of his expanded 16-night residency in San Francisco next year, a run of shows that had been postponed due to the singer’s vocal problems. The concerts, originally announced as a 15-night residency this past June and July, will find Murphy performing “a retrospective of his greatest solo albums in their entirety,” as well as several nights devoted to Bauhaus material. The shows, however, were postponed to early 2018 after nodules were discovered on Murphy’s vocal cords that were going to necessitate treatment and an extended period of recovery. This morning, Murphy announced “with great feeling of gladness” that former Bauhaus bassist David J will join him for those final Feb. 14 and 15 shows, including a newly added date on Feb. 16. He wrote: “It’s with great feeling of gladness to announce that David J has accepted my invitation to join me in performing and play his, what must be said, excellent original bass parts for three Mr Moonlight Bauhaus shows at The Chapel SF on February 14, 15, and just added show on February 16. During the 35 Years of Bauhaus Mr Moonlight tour of 2013, Emilio Dizefalo (my bass and violin player) noted how unique David’s bass part are and as such now we have David in person to play. It is obviously and additionally going to be a great pleasure personally to have David to my right in these shows. See you there.” On-sale information for the newly added Feb. 16 show has yet to be announced. The reunion of Murphy and David J comes as the other half of Bauhaus — Daniel Ash and David J’s brother, Kevin Haskins — have re-teamed as Poptone, and are touring the U.S. performing music by their collective former bands, largely Tones on Tail, but also Love and Rockets and Bauhaus. Murphy and David J, and their two former bandmates, last played together in Bauhaus in 2006. See the full details of Murphy’s S.F. shows below.

                 New Order today announced that it has reached a “full and final settlement” to end the band’s long-running legal disputes with its former bassist Peter Hook over the royalties Hook has received since 2011 and his own use of “various New Order and Joy Division assets.” The band announced the settlement on its website, and did not disclose cash terms of any deal made with Hook. For his part, Hook has not commented publicly on the settlement. Hook, who last played with New Order in 2006, sued his former bandmates in 2015, alleging Bernard Sumner, Stephen Morris and Gillian Gilbert had set up a new company in 2011 to control the New Order brand and had left him largely out of the profits generated by the group. New Order responded that Hook “receives his full share of all back catalog royalties,” and took issue with his use of New Order and Joy Division assets in promoting his own Peter Hook & The Light concerts, which feature Hook and his new band exclusively performing material from those two groups. “The Joy Division and New Order names mean a great deal to so many of the fans, and the band felt it important to protect the legacy,” New Order writes in its statement. “With these issues now dealt with, Bernard, Stephen and Gillian can continue to do what they do best, make music and perform live.” In 2013, after much wrangling, New Order released Lost Sirens, a collection of songs left over from the sessions for 2005’s Waiting For the Sirens’ Call. It would be the group’s final album to feature Hook’s bass playing. In 2015, New Order released Music Complete, its first post-Hook, and still most-recent, album. Here’s the full New Order statement on the settlement: New Order announce that today, a full and final settlement has been reached in the long running disputes with their former bassist Peter Hook. The disputes were based upon Hook’s use of various New Order and Joy Division assets on merchandising and in the promotion of shows by his new band, and the amount of money he receives from the use of the name New Order by his former colleagues since 2011. The Joy Division and New Order names mean a great deal to so many of the fans, and the band felt it important to protect the legacy. With these issues now dealt with, Bernard, Stephen and Gillian can continue to do what they do best, make music and perform live.

    Nearly four decades’ worth of singles — both A-sides and their accompanying B-sides — by the assorted lineups of Mark E. Smith’s pioneering post-punk outfit The Fall will be collected on a new 7-disc, 117-track box set from Cherry Red Records this November. The collection, christened The Singles 1978-2016, is due to be released Nov. 24 in both a full 7-disc set and a slimmed-down 3-disc set that just presents the A-sides, without the four CDs worth of B-sides.  Both versions of the forthcoming box set can be pre-ordered via the label’s website. According to Cherry Red, this collection — remastered by Fall engineer Andy Pearce — is the first to bring together Fall output released across a swath of different labels, including Step Forward, Rough Trade, Kamera, Beggars Banquet, Cog Sinister, Permanent, Artful, Action and Cherry Red itself. The collection spans music released on The Fall’s 1978 debut EP Bingo-Master’s Break-Out! through 2016’s Wise Ol’ Man EP, and countless singles, and their B-sides, in between (though not anything from New Facts Emerge, the band’s 32nd studio album, which was released this past July). The box set includes a full illustrated discography from Fall expert Conway Paton. See the full tracklist below. Tracklist: The Fall, The Singles 1978-2016 Disc 1: Singles 1. “Bingo-Master Breakout” 2. “It’s The New Thing” 3. “Rowche Rumble” 4. “Fiery Jack” 5. “How I Wrote ‘Elastic Man'” 6. “Totally Wired” 7. “Lie Dream Of A Casino Soul” 8. “Look, Know” 9. “The Man Whose Head Expanded” 10. “Kicker Conspiracy” 11. “Marquis Cha-cha ” 12. “Oh!

    The time has come once again, it appears, to dust off our old MBV Watch feature, as rumors now are swirling about reclusive guitar-noise genius Kevin Shields being at work on a new My Bloody Valentine album — the follow-up to 2013’s mbv — for release sometime next year. As Pitchfork notes, Shields has been booked to play Norður og Niður, Sigur Ros’ upcoming festival in Iceland, and his official bio on the festival’s website says he’s “working on material for a new My Bloody Valentine album to be released in 2018.” The bio also says he’s working on new “all analog vinyl versions” of the band’s first two albums, Isn’t Anything and Loveless. There’s no official word, outside of that, of plans for a new MBV record. Our MBV Watch feature was born in 2009 to track the oft-delayed release of Shields’ CD remasters of those two albums (they finally came out in 2012 after upteen schedule changes), and it went on to chronicle the relatively short ramp-up to the release of mbv, the 22-years-in-the-making follow-up to Loveless. Now, we’ll track this alleged new MBV album. Patience, friends.

                 Morrissey  this morning debuted the first single off his upcoming 11th album Low in High School, a typically maudlin song called “Spent the Day in Bed” that finds the singer exhausted by the events and happily bedridden (“Stop watching the news!”). Stream the full track below. The album, with its full tracklist detailed below, is due out Nov. 17, and is now available for pre-order digitally in the U.S. and digitally and on CD and vinyl in the U.K. There also are a variety of colored-vinyl bundles available for pre-order through Moz’s Mporium shop. The record’s anti-monarchy cover art is posted above, and Morrissey, following up on last night’s tweet, also announced the cities — but not full details — of his upcoming U.S. tour. See those below. And, finally, for our fellow punctuation purists, the cover art confirms the album’s title will not have the absurd hyphen (Low in High-School) that accompanied the record’s initial announcement. Tracklist: Morrissey, Low in High School 1. “My Love I’d Do Anything For You 2. “I Wish You Lonely 3. “Jacky’s Only Happy When She’s Up On The Stage 4. “Home Is A Question Mark 5. “Spent The Day In Bed” 6. “I Bury The Living” 7. “In Your Lap” 8. “The Girl From Tel-Aviv Who Wouldn’t Kneel” 9. “All The Young People Must Fall In Love” 10. “When You Open Your Legs” 11. “Who Will Protect Us From The Police?” 12. “Israel” Morrissey U.S. tour cities: New York, NY Washington, D.C.

    When Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark announced their new album The Punishment of Luxury last spring, the group had a handful of U.S. summer dates on the books — but it wasn’t much of a tour. That all changes next spring, when OMD returns for a full 27-date North American trek. OMD, which announced the tour today, will open the trek March 6 in Washington, D.C., and continue up the East Coast, and then out west, before circling back, wrapping up April 14 in Fort Lauderdale, Fla. In between, the band will hit the Canadian cities of Toronto and Vancouver as well. See full dates below, and head to OMD’s website for ticket info.

                 Morrissey, whose social media presence long has been limited to an official Facebook page, is now on Twitter, too — well, his management and/or record label is — and that account tonight tweeted a list of U.S. states that presumably mark stops on a soon-to-be-announced tour. The tweet — only the second from @officialmoz — lists Oregon, Washington, California, Arizona, Utah, Colorado, Missouri, Illinois, Michigan, Washington, D.C., New York, Pennsylvania and Massachusetts. It comes just a few hours before Morrissey’s brand-new single, “Spent the Day in Bed” (also tweeted), is due to premiere, around 8:40 a.m. London time Tuesday, on BBC 6 Music. The track is the first single to be released from Morrissey’s upcoming 11th studio album, Low in High School, which is due out Nov. 17 via the singer’s new Etienne Records imprint on the BMG label. The album was recorded in southern France and Rome, and, like its 2014 predecessor World Peace is None of Your Business, it’s produced by Joe Chiccarelli. The only tour dates announced so far are a pair of concerts, Nov. 10 and 11, at the Hollywood Bowl.

                 Cherry Red Records is preparing a 5-disc box set that will chronicle the U.K. post-punk scene from 1977 to 1981, collecting more than 100 songs from artists including Wire, The Slits, Joy Division, The Fall, Gang of Four, The Pop Group and many, many more. To the Outside of Everything: A Story of U.K. Post-Punk 1977-1981 is due in early December, and is being assembled by the same team that put together the label’s Manchester North of England, Silhouettes and Statues and Scared to Get Happy box sets, as well as the C86, C87 and C88 collections. The post-punk set features big names from the scene, like those mentioned above, as well as Echo & The Bunnymen, New Order, Public Image Ltd. and Killing Joke, plus many lesser-known acts, including Glaxo Babies, The Deep Freeze Mice, Family Fodder and Spöön Fazer. Check out the 111-song tracklist below, though the set’s curators note “one or two tracks may change.” Tracklist: Various Artists, To the Outside of Everything: A Story of U.K. Post-Punk 1977-1981 Disc 1 1.

    The weekly arrival of previously unreleased live versions of tracks off The Smiths’ classic The Queen is Dead continues with “Vicar in a Tutu,” which you can stream below in the form of a never-before-released recording from July 30, 1986, at Centennial Hall in London, Ontario, Canada — the opening night of the band’s North American tour. That track, like its weekly predecessors (see links below), won’t be included in the upcoming 3CD/1DVD reissue of The Queen is Dead. But the band’s label did recently release one of the tracks that will appear on the Live in Boston bonus disc: a 4-minute medley “Rubber Ring/What She Said/Rubber Ring.” Below, check out the new (old) version of “Vicar in a Tutu.” PREVIOUSLY ON SLICING UP EYEBALLS Listen: The Smiths, ‘The Boy With the Thorn in His Side’ — unreleased live take from 1986 Listen: The Smiths, ‘Rubber Ring/What She Said/Rubber Ring’ — off ‘Live in Boston’ Listen: The Smiths, ‘Bigmouth Strikes Again’ — unreleased live take from Berkeley 1986 Listen: The Smiths, ‘Cemetry Gates’ — unreleased live take from Manchester 1986 Listen: The Smiths, ‘Never Had No One Ever’ — unreleased live take from Nottingham 1986 Listen: The Smiths, ‘I Know It’s Over’ — unreleased live take from Los Angeles 1986 Listen: The Smiths, ‘Frankly Mr. Shankly’ — unreleased live take from Milwaukee 1986 Listen: The Smiths, ‘The Queen is Dead’ — previously unreleased live recording The Smiths’ ‘The Queen is Dead’ 3CD/1DVD reissue to include unreleased 1986 live album More...
