Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds: The Beginning of the Summer Tour

Versatile artist and rock preacher Nick Cave kicked off a summer tour last week with his legendary band, The Bad Seeds. The starting point in Denmark was the band’s first show since 2018, and in it, they delivered a few special surprises to the audience — performing the song “Get Ready for Love” for the first time since 2009 and the song “Vortex,” which had its concert debut.

Blind Channel: New Video Single “Don’t Fix Me“

The Finnish band Blind Channel, one of the favourites of last year’s Eurovision Song Contest, has released a new video single called “Don’t Fix Me.” The song combines an infectious melody, dark lyrics, and hard rock riffs, while the video shows the band on tour and features a behind-the-scenes look at its concerts.

The song “Don’t Fix Me“ is another in a series of singles used by Blind Channel to announce the upcoming album “Lifestyles of the Sick & Dangerous,” joining the previously released songs “Bad Idea,” “Dark Side,” “We Are No Saints,” and “Balboa.” The entire LP will be released on July 8th, two days before the band’s performance at the EXIT Festival, where audiences will have the opportunity to hear it live for the first time.
