Quick Hits: Panic! At The Disco, The Ramones, Amnesty International benefit concerts, Broken Bells
October 8, 2013

Panic! At The Disco has announced that the Too Weird To Live, Too Rare To Die! headline tour gets underway on January 14 in Seattle and runs through February 15 in San Francisco. Meanwhile, fans can watch the band on the Outdoor Stage at ABC's Jimmy Kimmel Live! this Thursday, October 10.

A new Ramones box set, Ramones: The Sire Years (1976-1981), will be released on October 29 via Rhino Records. The set compiles the band's first six records: their 1976 debut, Ramones; their 1977 follow ups Leave Home and Rocket to Russia; 1978's Road to Ruin; 1980's End of the Century; and 1981's Pleasant Dreams. Rhino will also offer an expanded digital set that includes those six physical LPs, plus the band's output from the rest of the 1980s.

A six-DVD and two-CD box set of highlights from the Amnesty International benefit concerts from 1986 through 1998 will be released by Shout Factory on November 5. The set, called Released!, will feature performances and appearances by more than 35 artists such as U2, Bruce Springsteen, Sting, Radiohead, Joni Mitchell, Miles Davis, Jimmy Page and Robert Plant. The release celebrates the 25th anniversary of the Human Rights Now concert that played five continents in 1988, and it offers almost 17 hours of live footage, interviews and more.

James Mercer of The Shins and Danger Mouse have reconvened for a new album under their Broken Bells moniker. The new record, called After the Disco, is due in January, and the pair has released an album teaser video. Check it out below:
