The Round-up – Monday November 27th, 2017
Today we have a live Mudhoney album on the way, The Lemonheads headline shows selling quickly, an album preview from Kayak, signing news for Vile Ones, and another taste of Black Rebel Motorcycle’s album.
* Please note over the holiday season (our feet are up early, so from now!), there will be less articles on site. Most will be in these ‘The Round-up’ posts, so keep checking in at the new midday time for a daily recap to keep on top of the goings on. If you have news to submit, do it [Here].
Tickets are now on sale and moving swiftly for their headline shows around the big tour.
They’ll play Taronga Zoo in Sydney on Thursday 1st March with Jebediah, RAD Bar in Wollongong on Friday 2nd March (already sold out), The Corner in Melbourne on 7th March and The Gov in Adelaide on 8th March.

The news comes today alongside the live recording of ‘Judgement, Rage, Retribution and Thyme‘, captured in Vienna. Check it out below.
Recorded during their 2016 European tour at shows in Germany, Croatia, Sweden, Austria, Norway, and Slovenia – ‘LiE‘ is the first unlimited-edition, non-bootleg live Mudhoney album to date.
January 1, 2018 marks Mudhoney’s 30th anniversary, and this release is a fitting start to a year that will also see the release of a new full-length album.
This live album’s 11 tracks span the band’s storied career, and include their cover of Roxy Music’s ‘Editions of You‘. Pre-order [Here].
“The band is an outlet for all of us to write untethered to trends, concepts, or styles. To just vent whatever we want unabashedly. We all thrive off of collaboration and Vile Ones has created a new and exciting blank-canvas in which to backboard whatever random inspirations may spark within us. We each respect each other’s craft and contributions immensely making it really exciting to see which of these little sparks turn to fire in a release.“
The band has released a new song called ‘Bait & Collar‘ from a 6-song EP titled ‘Teeth‘ they plan on releasing on January 5th via Good Fight Music.
The latest taste of the album is the track ‘King Of Bones‘ which can be streamed below.

Founding member Ton Scherpenzeel has this to say about the upcoming new record:
“Who would have thought that the quirky Dutch prog band that began its journey in 1973 (the year “See See The Sun” came out) would still have a future some 45 years later. Yes, we have had our share of ups and downs. Often it seemed the band would either break up for good or fade into oblivion. But we didn’t. So here we are, a new line up, but as dedicated to the music as we were in the beginning. If there is a secret to KAYAK’s longevity, it must be that. Writing this, I realize that the album title does not only mark the number of studio albums KAYAK has made up until now. It also represents that exciting feeling of being 17 all over again, embarking on a musical journey, full of expectations. And just like in 1973, I don’t know where it will lead us, but we’re on our way. Here’s to new horizons.“
‘Seventeen‘ is now available to pre-order on 2CD Digipak (featuring an extra disc with 36 minutes of demo material), gatefold 2LP + CD & digital download [Here].
