The Music Festival Season is Upon us

Robert Plant and the Sensational Space Shifters continue to tour thru 2015 in support of Plant’s latest solo effort, lullaby and… The Ceaseless Roar, where it peaked at #6 on the Canadian Albums Billboard Chart. Here’s Plant with a new and psychedelic video he released just last week from Roar entitled Rainbow.

Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds have released a new video for their upcoming new single, Riverman. This is the first time Gallagher has used the saxophone in his songs and it seems to work. The acoustic guitar at the beginning of the song may sound a lot like OasisWonderwall but that quickly changes. Riverman will officially be released as the third single from the album, Chasing Yesterday next month on May 11th on 7″ coloured vinyl.

Since the beginning of last year, Billy Joel has played at least one concert a month at New York’s Madison Square Garden and will continue to play his residency there at least until the end of 2015. Joel is also on board to headline Bonnaroo 2015 in June so keep a look out for hit set-list from him since Joel doesn’t really do that many music festivals. Here’s the piano man performing Vienna live from MSG.

Want to check out a local Toronto rock band that sound like their on the up and up? Biblical are playing at The Horseshoe Tavern this Friday night and should erupt the stage with their multiple wrenching guitars. Here they are with their latest single entitled, The Quiet Crooks.

Another Toronto band that’s making their name well-known around the world is PUP. They only formed in 2013 and they’ve already toured Europe and Australia. In the fall of 2014, PUP completed their first headlining tour of Canada and the United States. Earlier this year at the 2015 Juno Awards, PUP was nominated for Recording Package of the Year and Video of the Year for Guilt Trip. Here’s PUP with their video for Lionheart where the song is also featured on EA Sports’ NHL ’15 soundtrack. Until next time.
