Quick Hits: Thirty Seconds To Mars, No Doubt, American Idol tour, Storm Thorgerson / Pink Floyd, Roskilde Festival
April 19, 2013


30 Seconds To Mars
Thirty Seconds To Mars has partnered with VEVO to premiere the short film Up In The Air. Fans can view the film here. "This short film is quite unlike anything we have ever done before. With contributions from Damien Hirst, Dita Von Teese, U.S. Olympic gymnasts McKayla Maroney and Jordyn Wieber, Maxwell Snow, Neil Strauss, a lion, wolf, a snake (and yes some zebras), we take an epic, bizarre and hallucinogenic journey through a incredibly surreal landscape," says singer Jared Leto. "It was exciting to explore new territory and once again work with the maniacal Bartholomew Cubbins at the helm." The band's new album, Love Lust Faith + Dreams, is due on May 21.

Producer Greg Kurstin and the production team Rock Mafia have confirmed that they are working with No Doubt on new material for the band's next album. Kurstin told Rolling Stone this week at the ASCAP Pop Music Awards that he is currently working on several projects, including No Doubt, who announced in February that they were postponing their 2013 tour plans to go back into the studio. "We've been working and we're going to work on more next week," Kurstin confirmed. He also said he's been in the studio with Mikky Ekko and Lily Allen (a.k.a. Lily Rose Cooper). No Doubt has been keeping fans updated on their progress via Twitter and Facebook, but there is currently no release date for the album.

The American Idol Live! tour has been announced, featuring this season's Top 10 singers. Plus, castoff Aubrey Cleland will join the tour thanks to a "fan save" vote. The 11 singers will do a 40-show trek that begins June 29 in St. Louis, MO and finishes up August 31 in Nashville, TN.

Storm Thorgerson, a British graphic designer who created album covers for Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, Muse, Genesis, Phish and many others, has died at age 69 after a long battle with cancer. Thorgerson is most well-known for designing the Pink Floyd covers for Dark Side of the Moon, Wish You Were Here and Animals. "We first met in our early teens," David Gilmour said in a statement. "We would gather at Sheep's Green, a spot by the river in Cambridge and Storm would always be there holding forth, making the most noise, bursting with ideas and enthusiasm. Nothing has ever really changed. He has been a constant force in my life, both at work and in private, a shoulder to cry on and a great friend. The artworks that he created for Pink Floyd from 1968 to the present day have been an inseparable part of our work."

Denmark's massive Roskilde Festival returns this summer from June 29 Ė July 7, promising nearly 200 acts over nine days. So far the lineup includes Kraftwerk, The National, Volbeat, Queens of the Stone Age, Slipknot, Rihanna, Of Monsters and Men, The Lumineers, Kendrick Lamar, Miguel, James Blake, Crystal Castles, Animal Collective, Lykke Li, Miike Snow, Bobby Womack, Henry Rollins, The Sword, Airbourne and tons more.
