D-Sisive has announced that his next album Run With The Creeps will be released on Nov. 1.

Jane's Addiction's new album The Great Escape Artist will be available for the 48 people who still care on Sept. 27.
Murray Lightburn from The Dears totally <3s Katy Perry. Shes teh bests xoxo!!
Danko Jones is kinda the hey-Spike to Alexisonfire's Wade MacNeil.
Hollerado are going to meet the mayors in the cities of Calgary and Regina. In a shocking coincidence, their latest round of shows are being called the "Meet The Mayor" tour.
Young Galaxy, the Rodney Dangerfield of awesome Montreal bands, have announced a world tour. And by "world" they mean North America and a few cities that soul-searching grads backpack through in Europe.
The full lineup of bands performing at Hamilton, Ont.'s free Supercrawl street festival on Sept. 10 has been announced. Now, in addition to the likes of Broken Social Scene and J Mascis, you get Turkey Rhubarb, Fry Truck, Dinner Belles... anyone else hungry?... and more.
Speaking of Hamilton and things you could theoretically eat, Cowlick have started giving away their Wires album for free here.
Velvet Revolver say they've recorded an album with Corey Taylor of Slipknot. Slash apparently hated it though, so it's never going to be released.
In the totally necessary product department, Panda Bear's Tomboy album will be getting a four-LP deluxe box set reissue. Months after the original came out. Of course.
Moving on to the exploitation of dead people's legacies, Nirvana's Nevermind is being reissued Sept. 27. There will be various packages, but the most excessive will be a four-CD/one-DVD set.
In other album news, the Brian Jonestown Massacre will be releasing a two-disc retrospective anthology called The Singles Collection (1992-2011) which will no doubt bear zero resemblance to 2004's two-disc retrospective anthology Tepid Peppermint Wonderland.
The Flaming Lips and Lightning Bolt are releasing a joint EP. This is kind of like what would happen if ADHD and mania teamed up and became comorbid in the same person, right? ...What, not a good joke?
Music journalist Karen Bliss and Crush Luther frontman Luther Mallory have started their own record label, Daycare Records. They're "babysitting your stupid band." No, really. That's the tagline.
There's a new documentary about Sum 41 called Don't Try This At Home coming out. Looks like it's got lots of Jack Daniels and copious use of the phrase "fuck it" in it. Oh, and a flaming guitar. Maybe that's the part the title refers to?[video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KsIfTnrUyuA&feature=player_embedded]
This road sign wants you to stop!... Hammer Time!
