Speaking of new albums, Cage the Elephant have a record coming out early next year (Thank You, Happy Birthday, due Jan. 11), and word on the street is that they shot some photos for the album at the house currently occupied by members of the band Heartbeater, who were instructed to make the house look like a bunch of dudes in a band live there. Since a bunch of dudes in a band do live there, does the house not, by definition, look like a house where a bunch of dudes in a band live, regardless of how it looks? Anyway.
Speaking of Hearbeater, you can now download their album Slow Waves for free over at the Meltface Records Bandcamp page. While you're there, you can also order the album on vinyl — the vinyl that the band's successful Kickstarter campaign helped get pressed.
