Muse have been recording new stuff for some time now. Previously, frontman Matt Bellamy promised all Muse fans that things would 'get heavy' on the new album. What he meant by 'heavy' was left up in the air. Did he mean heavy as in the sounds of heavy metal? Or heavy, as in emotionally heavy?

Muse has dropped more clues on Instagram about their forthcoming album on their Instagram page with vision of a recording session an Milan. The clip shows them recording with an orchestra. 

In an interview with Rolling Stone last year, Matt discussed their plans with their new album: "I have this strong feeling that the next album should be something that really does strip away the additional things that we've experimented with on the last two albums, which is electronics, symphonics and orchestral work and all that kind of stuff."

Just when we thought that Soundwave 2015 couldn't get any bigger, they announce more mega acts to join the already killer lineup. The latest inclusions are The Smashing Pumpkins, Steel Panther, Millencolin, Falling In Reverse, Exodus, The Vandals, King Parrot, Rival Sons, and Raglans.

The addition of The Smashing Pumpkins to the list of previously announced headliners is massive for everyone who already has a ticket to the hottest festival in Australia. The US rockers have sold over 30 million albums and won multiple Grammy Awards in the process. Not only have they dropped Monuments to an Elegy this month, they will also be releasing Day for Night in 2015.

When asked about joining the Soundwave 2015 line up, Billy Corgan said, "The thing about Soundwave that sticks out amongst a lot of other festivals is that when you look at the bill you say, 'that's an exciting show' and I think it's very fan-focused. This is the kind of bill if I was looking as a fan I'd say, 'I wanna see what's going on at this show'."

Tickets are still available here. You don't want to miss Soundwave 2015!

Slipknot / Faith No More / Soundgarden / The Smashing Pumpkins / Slash (featuring Myles Kennedy and The Conspirators) / Marilyn Manson / Fall Out Boy / Steel Panther / Incubus / Judas Priest / Millencolin / All Time Low / Lamb Of God / Ministry / Falling In Reverse / Godsmack / Killer Be Killed / Exodus / New Found Glory / Tonight Alive / Gerard Way / The Vandals / Lagwagon / Fear Factory / Antemasque / Papa Roach / Of Mice & Men / Dragonforce / Escape the Fate / Hollywood Undead / One Ok Rock / Atreyu / The Devil Wears Prada / Godflesh / The Aquabats / The Wonder Years / Area 7 / Twin Atlantic / Ne Obliviscaris / Animals as Leaders / Mayhem / Apocalyptica / Lower Than Atlantis / Bayside / Nothing More / Fucked Up / Evergreen Terrace / He Is Legend / Nonpoint / Crossfaith / Fireworks / King Parrot / Crown the Empire / Icon For Hire / Butcher Babies / Emily’s Army / Rival Sons / The Interrupters / King 810 / Monuments / The Color Morale / The Swellers / Conditions /  Confession / Sleepwave / Coldrain /  Le Butcherettes / Patent Pending / Dayshell / This Wild Life / The Bennies / Raglans / Deathstars /

This is interesting! Grimes, known for her magically twisted sonic beats and nostalgic presence to her songs , she has released details on her anticipated album titled 'url'.

Tom Misch & Carmody - So Close


'So Close' is the project of London instrumentalist Tom Misch and singer/songwriter Carmody. The track is also part of their collaborative EP Out to Sea, which was released on December 8th. The use of a combination of different sounds from a drum machine breaks the mold of what we expect from a folk track and we love it!

Rhodes - The Lakes


RHODES, who hails from Hitchin, has been gaining widespread attention due to the release of his mixtapes Raising Your Love, Morning, and Home. He has supported London Grammar and Sam Smith on their tours, and has also appeared at BBC Radio 1 Big Weekend in Glasgow and Glastonbury Festival. We love 'The Lakes' because its both hauntingly beautiful and folk at its finest.

Bjear - Cold



Through their music, Bjear (pronounced Byeah) aim to capture the imagery of Iceland and it's volcanoes, gorgeous panoramas, and soul of the land. 'Cold' is a breathtakingly beautiful track by the band from Adelaide.

Whilk & Misky - Love Lost



The London duo consisting of Whilk, the producer, and Misky, the vocalist of the duo, have been on the rise since releasing 'Clap Your Hands'. To this date, the track has had nearly 400k listens on soundcloud. We're expecting big things from them in 2015. Watch this space.

Banff - Stand In Line



'Stand In Line' is the debut track by singer-songwriter from Brisbane, Banff. Banff (aka Ben Forbes) is also the frontman of Little Casino. The track is a wonderful mix of indie pop and folk. The dreamy sounds and his stunning vocals are a pleasure to listen to.

 INTERVIEW: ELIZA HULL

We have a lovely chat to the gorgeous Eliza Hull about the release of her new single 'Used To', her highly anticipated debut album 'The Bones Of Us' next year
and a discussion on what drives her to make music.


1) Congratulations on the release of your new single 'Used To'! How stoked are you on a scale of 1-10?

I have to say 10! I am a positive person. I have had an amazing response from online websites/blogs and from my listeners!

2) Your recent EP 'The Ghosts You Never Catch' has gained such rad attention, congratulations! (Again hehe) May i say it is very well deserved!

Thank you! I am really proud of the EP. It was a really beautiful process working with Hayden Calnin at his Peninsula Beach House. I also got the chance to work with Pat Dillett (Julia Stone) in New York on track 'Skin' that was a dream come true.
 
3) Your song 'Echoes' was also used on 'Teen Wolf' and 'Awkward', what was that experience like?

That has been such amazing exposure for me, it is always interesting the day after it airs the amount of people I get contacting me and reaching out. Also watching the YouTube hits go up. Syncs on TV shows has a lot of power to reach people.
 
4) Are you a fan of the shows? 
To be honest I am not!

5) You have completed an European tour recently , where did you adventure to and how did you find the response ? 

I absolutely loved that experience. I will never forget being in Turkey and having a whole crowd singing along in a Non English speaking country that was a real mind blow! I traveled and performed in Berlin, London, New York, Boston, Turkey and Berlin. I loved every moment of it!


6) There must have been some interesting influences on your travels, please share a travel story with us! 
I got a chance to perform at The National History Museum in London which was crazy. I was in front of hundreds of people with the huge animals all around. The building is such a beautiful one, with amazing acoustics. This was due to winning a competition I entered, I didn't think I would win so had a plane ticket out of London that day. I had to cancel it so I could play!!

7) How do you feel about the release of your debut album 'The Bones Of Us' next year? Your Melbourne fans seemed to love you with a sold out launch show! 

I am excited to release it next year. Looking forward to playing more shows next year also. The launch show was amazing. I announced on stage that I am actually expecting my first child! So next year is going to be a big one for me.

8) Do you do anything special before you hit the stage?

Breathe! Sounds crazy but sometimes you can get so nervous that you forget to breathe properly! I always just make sure I eat something, drink lots of water and relax.

9) It looks like we have reached the end of the interview, Do you have any exciting news you would like to share with us?

Next year I will be releasing my debut album in March! I look forward to hearing your thoughts. xx

We cant wait to hear your newest music, you seem like such a gorgeous soul, best of luck for 2015! Thanks for the chat.
