Trivium have announced that they have decided to postpone their upcoming UK and European headline tour until early 2023 due to the uncertainty that still remains over Covid-19 restrictions.

Paolo Gregoletto had this to say, “We are deeply disappointed that we have to postpone these dates as we were determined to be one of the first international acts to resume touring across Europe.

“Unfortunately, with the uncertainty of cross border travel and restrictions it’s become impossible for these dates to proceed as planned. We can assure you we were doing everything up until the last minute to figure out a way to do the shows and it wasn’t a decision we made lightly.

“We appreciate this is a way off, but we promise to make it worth the wait and we have two new albums worth of material we haven’t toured yet to bring to you. We can’t wait to return and hope to see all of you at the rescheduled dates!”

The full details for the UK leg have been announced, see them below:

01/12/23 Glasgow, UK – O2 Academy
01/13/23 Birmingham, UK – O2 Academy
01/14/23 Manchester, UK – O2 Victoria Warehouse
01/15/23 London, UK – O2 Academy Brixton

ABBA Share New Single ‘Just A Notion’

ABBA have released their brand new single “Just A Notion”. The song is the third single the legendary group has revealed from their forthcoming album, “Voyage”, which will arrive on November 5th.

Bjorn Ulvaeus had this to say about the new track, “Wikipedia says this track was recorded in September 1978, which sounds about right. That puts it in between ABBA the Album and Voulez-Vous, and it would have been included in the latter had we not decided against it. Why did we decide against it? In hindsight, I don’t have a clue. It’s a good song with great vocals. I know that we played it to a publisher in France and a couple of other people we trusted and as far as I can remember they liked it very much. So it’s a mystery and will remain a mystery.

“Now Benny has recorded a new backing track to which we’ve added drums and guitars, but all vocals are from the original 1978 tracks. In a way, it demonstrates what we plan to do with ABBA Voyage in 2022. There, we will have a live band playing, but all vocals will be from the old recordings.

“‘Just a Notion’ is a ridiculously happy song and hopefully it will cheer you up in these dark times!” Check it out below:

Crowdfunder set up to help artists who pulled out of Hit The North over SSD Concerts allegations

A GoFundMe crowdfunder has been set up to help the artists who pulled out of today’s Hit The North Festival over allegations levelled at the event’s promoters, SSD Concerts.

The managing director of the northeast-based company, Steve Davis, resigned with “immediate effect” back in April, shortly after former staff members accused SSD of “underpaying” workers and making them feel “uncomfortable” while doing their job.

The promoters initially denied the claims, calling them “false and malicious”, and insisting that they do “not tolerate bullying, harassment or discrimination in any form”. Artists including Sam Fender, IDLES and Kelly Lee Owens subsequently severed ties with SSD.

SSD Concerts then said that an independent investigation would be held, writing in a statement to NME: “The wellbeing of our team is of the upmost importance and any allegations of this nature must be investigated thoroughly.”

The company explained that it would be “taking steps to ensure that all shows will go ahead” and is promoting Hit The North Festival 2021, which is taking place in Newcastle today (October 23).

It comes after SSD yesterday (October 22) addressed “serious sexual allegations”. The promoters wrote that “no evidence of racism, misogyny or sexual misconduct was found against the managing director” during an independent HR investigation. SSD did, however, acknowledge that it “could and should have done better” in relation to poor business practices (via Chronicle Live).

Sports Team, Oscar Lang, NOISY and Vistas are among the artists who have taken to social media to boycott the festival, which is taking place in Newcastle today (October 23), due to its link to SSD.

A GoFundMe has now been set up by event manager Cole Gilroy to help cover the costs of a free replacement show for the artists who pulled out of the festival.

“Today is ‘Hit The North’ Festival which should be a celebration of our venue infrastructure and talent in the North East,” a statement on the GoFundMe page reads. “However organisers, SSD Concerts have failed to sufficiently address ongoing claims of abuse which has led to many artists rightly pulling out of the festival.

“We are putting on a free show at Head of Steam 23/10/21 for a number of artists let down by the organiser and need help with costs that these artists will lose out on. We also hope to raise enough to help working crew etc who will alos be losing out after whats been a terrible time for this industry over the last 2 years.”

The statement concluded: “Any help is appreciated, the North East is better than this and we can rebuild our scene.”

The replacement gig will take place tonight (October 23) at Newcastle’s Head of Steam, situated right across from Newcastle Central Station. So far, NOISY and Macca Wiles have been confirmed to perform at the new show.

Hit The North Festival is yet to comment on the mass cancellations. NME has contacted the event for comment.

Following the HR investigation, Steve Davis said in a statement: This has been a very sobering process to go through. I haven’t always got things right and if this has affected anyone, I am sorry. I thank all staff past and present for their honesty and feedback which will help the business move forward.”

Investigators concluded their report: “Overall, the level of familiarity between employees and Steve Davis as managing director has blurred the boundaries of professional relationships within the workplace which has been exacerbated by the industry within which they work.

“Some ACAS courses were booked for attendance by Steve Davis and other employees with management responsibilities. This would go some way to help provide some understanding with regards to the issues related to harassment, equality, diversity, and inclusivity.”

They continued: “The reflections of Steve Davis are reassuring. He has a level of awareness from this process and these events and will not engage in any contact or conversation that could lend itself to misinterpretation again in the future, reinforced by the fact there is now executive director awareness and oversight.”

Jack Harlow on Kanye West: “I think he sees himself as Mozart or Beethoven”

Jack Harlow has shared his thoughts on how Kanye West views himself and his music at this stage in his career.

Speaking in a new interview, Harlow was asked about West’s “doom aesthetic”, referring to his current fashion choices and the cult energy surrounding his recent stadium gatherings to promote new album ‘DONDA’.

“I think he sees himself as Mozart or Beethoven,” Harlow told GQ. “I think he’s worried, not about what it looks like now but what it will look like in 100 years.”

The ‘Whats Poppin’ rapper continued: “Take what happened with the Taylor Swift situation: at the time it was all pitchforks, but now people treat that as iconic. I am always fascinated to see what he does next. This ‘DONDA’ roll-out, people are going to remember that for years.”

Elsewhere during the chat, Harlow revealed he “could be” releasing some music with UK rapper Dave sometime soon.

“The first time we met was in LA and then on the way back to London he flew to Atlanta and we went to the studio and worked on some stuff,” Harlow said. “I ordered him Waffle House for the first time…”

He continued: “Dave and I had one session in the studio but it’s open-ended. We kept in touch. I like his stuff as it’s really wordy, a lot like mine. Not many rappers are like that back home.”

Earlier this week, Kanye West‘s petition to legally change his name to his nickname, Ye, was approved in a Los Angeles court.

Back in August, the rapper and producer filed documents to change his full name – Kanye Omari West – to the mononym.

According to TMZ, West has now been granted his name change, which means he will be referred to simply as Ye moving forward, and he will no longer have a middle name.

Meanwhile, Harlow has shared details of a phone call he had with Eminem, where the legendary rapper praised the rising Kentucky artist.
