RIP Devon Clifford

Devon Clifford, 30, of the Canadian band You Say Party! We Say Die!, passed away early this morning. He had a brain hemorrhage on stage last night, and was rushed to a hospital where he was placed on life support after having emergency neurosurgery. He died several hours later surrounded by loves ones. The band's record label released the following statement earlier today: "It is with absolute sadness to report that our dear friend Devon Clifford passed away just hours ago in a Vancouver hospital surrounded by his family and friends. He will be deeply missed by everyone who knew him. I request that we respect the family's privacy during this incredibly difficult time."
It's incredibly sad to see anyone go at such a young age. My sympathies go out to his family and friends.

Crystal Castles Leaks..

Yeap, that's right! The experimental electro, low-fi, Canadian two piece's latest album, Crystal Castles, which was due out June 7th, 2010, leaked late last night. I've given it a few listens so far and I'm liking what I hear, maybe even more than their first album. They're currently on tour over in Europe, but will be making a few stops around North America in August, starting from the west coast. Be sure to check them out when they come to a city near you, for they put on an anarchic and energetic live show. Not only that, but Alice is also good-looking, but that's not exactly why you should be wanting to see them live anyways.
