Live Gig Video: HEALTH play new song ‘New Coke’ from upcoming album ‘Death Magic’ at Primavera Sound 2015 in Barcelona

By on Friday, 10th July 2015 at 4:00 pm

Just under a month now to go before the release of HEALTH‘s new album ‘Death Magic’, their first in 6 years, on the 7th of August, and we’re about to make your Friday afternoon a little less heinous. The LA experimental / noise band performed at this year’s Primavera Sound 2015 festival in Barcelona, Spain, and Pitchfork were there to film their performance of ‘New Coke’, off the new album. You can watch the performance below.

For comparison, you can watch the admittedly gross promo video for ‘New Coke’ in this previous Video of the Moment feature. All of TGTF’s past coverage on HEALTH is through here.



Mallory Knox / September and October 2015 UK Tour

By on Friday, 10th July 2015 at 9:00 am

Following on their recent Download Festival appearance, Cambridge stadium rockers Mallory Knox have announced an autumn headline tour of the UK.  Dubbed the ‘Homecoming’ tour, this run of live dates will find the band performing songs from their recent top 15 album ‘Asymmetry’, which was recorded at Moles in Bath and Monnow Valley in Wales with legendary Pixies / Foo Fighters producer Gil Norton.  Below the tour date listing, you can watch the video for album track ‘Heart and Desire.’

Mallory Knox are currently touring in America with the Vans Warped Tour 2015 but are keen to bring their live show back across the pond.  Band frontman Mikey Chapman says, “We have been lucky enough to head overseas a lot this year and play to loads of new people, but we really cannot wait to get back to the UK and play our biggest headline run yet.  There really is no place like home!”  Tickets for the following shows are available now.
