Mercy! New DMB video
Fans of the Dave Matthews band are eagerly awaiting the arrival of the band's next album "Away From the World.". Due out September 11th,  the album was recorded with Steve Lillywhite, who produced their first three studio albums-- "Under The Table And Dreaming," "Crash" and "Before These Crowded Streets."

Dave has told interviewers that the overwhelming theme of the new record is LOVE.

It's not exactly a new idea, but Dave tells Billboard he doesn't want the band to be just remembered as a jam band. "What does that mean, even?" he asks.

He says perhaps what his fans see in the band is "the love and joy we have playing together."

You can certainly feel that joy in this video for the song "Mercy" off the forthcoming album. The band solicited its fans to make videos and send in photos for the song...edited them all together and this is what they came up with.

It's pretty darn cool. You can almost feel the love.

Bizarre new Dylan video
Bob Dylan's been teasing us about his 35th album "Tempest," which comes out September 11th, giving us a hint or two along the way.  Today he released the video for the song "Duquesne Whistle."

Rolling Stone calls it  "shockingly violent."  I'm not sure I'd go that far, but I will say it's a bit bizarre. I't doesn't seem that the video, directed by Nash Edgerton, has anything to do with the song.

What do you think?

Amazing new Garbage video
Didn't get enough Garbage at the Duck Pond earlier in August?

Perhaps this new video from the band will be just the thing to trip your trigger.

Directed by Julie Orser, it really has some amazing images. Quite beautiful to watch!

On a side note, Garbage has just announced it will be going to Russia to play in six different cities during the first part of November.   Let's just hope they don't say anything bad about Vladimir Putin, or they might end up spending Christmas in a not too festive prison.

New song from Green Day
Are you getting excited for the arrival of the first in Green Day's trilogy of albums?

The power-pop album ¡Uno! comes out September 25th, but we're slowly but surely are getting more hints of what the album will be like. The band debuted the song "Oh Love" around a month ago, and now has released another song, called Kill the DJ.

Here at Triple M, we're trying not to be offended by the title.

Give a listen.




The band has also released an official video for "Oh Love."

New song from Mumford & Sons
Mumford & Sons have a new album coming out on September 25th.  "Babel" is the long awaited follow-up to "Sigh No More," which came out way back in 2009.

The band is giving us little hint of what the album will sound like with the release of the first single, called "I Will Wait," which you'll be able to hear on New Music Thursday on 105.5 Triple M.

You can also give the song a listen here. It starts off melodic and slow, builds to a frenzy, and has a wild banjo solo and a fun shout-along chorus. What more could we ask for?
