Alex Bleeker and Luke Pyenson to release book ft stories from Bob Mould, Steve of PUP, more

Alex Bleeker, the bassist for Real Estate, has announced that he will be releasing his first book. The book is called Taste in Music: Eating On Tour with Indie Musicians and was written with food and travel writer Luke Pyenson who used to play in Frankie Cosmos. The book features stories from musicians including Bob Mould, Chris Frantz of Talking Heads and Tom Tom Club, The Beths, Sadie Dupuis of Speedy Ortiz, Steve Sladkowski of PUP, Stephanie Philips of Big Joanie, and more. The description of the book reads,

”In addition to meditations about eating on tour, Pyenson and Bleeker have gathered illuminating and thought-provoking stories that take place on five continents, in private homes and street-side stalls, in temples of fine dining and in actual temples, backstage and in the van, early morning and late at night. Stories that deal with the best parts of touring: meaningful cultural exchange, hospitality-induced euphoria, and the opportunity to build relationships around the world. And the worst: loneliness, exhaustion, estrangement from family and friends, struggles with disordered eating, and unsteady access to medical care.”

It will be out on September 24 via Chronicle Books. See the full list of artists involved below.

Thursday to release first new song in 13 years

Thursday have announced that they will be releasing their first new song in 13 years. It is called “Application For Release From The Dream” and will be out at midnight tonight. The song is also the band’s first release in 25 years to be released without a record label. The band announced this in a statement on Instagram that reads,

”Tonight we release our first song in 13 years. It’s also our first release in 25 years WITHOUT a record label. That’s 25 years since we set out in a small white van to play basements and VFW Halls — attics, kitchens and back yards — with a bunch of burned CDRs marked in black Sharpie: “Summer Tour ‘99.” In those 25 years, there were so many highway breakdowns, so many emergency rooms, run-ins with the law. So much time laughing in the studio, so many hours huddled together backstage or loading gear in the rain. And yes, 25 years of legal disputes and public blowouts. But now we are free. Free to make our own mistakes. Free to turn this band into whatever we dream it to be, whether we want to make it a collective of rotating members, a small cottage industry, a publishing house, a record label, or just a group of friends still having fun together after all these years. So tonight we step on stage at a tiny independent venue like we would’ve played when we were releasing Full Collapse (23 years ago this week) or again when we released No Devolucion (13 years ago this week). The kind of place we hope we get to keep playing at for as long as they’ll have us. Because no matter the size of the stages we’ve played in those 25 years, we remain— at heart — a small band, a bunch of kids still screaming in a basement. But we’re your small band and we love you. Thanks for everything. We’ll see you at midnight, in your time zone.”

Thursday released No Devolución in 2011. Check out the post in full below.
