Paramore
In a new blog post, Paramore update fans on the status of their next album. Singer Hayley Williams writes that ""There has never been so much time and care put into a Paramore album. Usually, we are rushing to make a very strict deadline which so far has just not been right for this record." She adds that they can't guarantee a new album will be out by the end of 2012, but did reveal they were just in the studio with producer Justin Meldal-Johnsen, former bassist for Beck and Nine Inch Nails who worked on M83's Hurry Up, We're Dreaming. The blog post can be read here.

Rockers Volbeat and Hellyeah will team up for this summer's "Live From Beyond Hell / Above Heaven" summer tour. The first round of dates have been announced, with the trek kicking off in Toronto on June 18.

Blur has announced a major reissue project of their entire catalog, as well as a massive 21-disc box set. Celebrating the Brit-poppers' 21st anniversary this summer, all seven of their albums will be re-issued in deluxe editions with bonus discs. The box set will also include three more CDs of rarities, three DVDs, a hardcover book and a vinyl single, according to Consequence Of Sound.

Coachella announced that the festival set a new attendance record, with between 80,000 - 85,000 attendees last weekend. NBC-Los Angeles reports this is roughly a 10,000 increase over Coachella 2011. Set times were announced for this weekend, when the festival will take place all over again. However, this weekend's Coachella will not be webcast, according to Consequence Of Sound.

Greg Ham, the multi-instrumentalist from Australian '80s hitmakers Men At Work, has passed away at the age of 58. According to reports, Ham was found dead in his home yesterday.
