Having used social media to tease a 'split' this week – via a cryptic comic strip and the then 'deleting' all of their social media accounts – The 1975 soon returned to announce a new “colourful” guise, a shot of their debut album artwork and dates for a November UK tour

Blur unveiled new video for Ong Ong, taken from their latest album, The Magic Whip.

Set to release their seventh studio album – Drones – on Monday (8 June), Muse have unveiled a new music video for Defector.

Fresh from the release of Peace Is The Mission, the first of two Major Lazer albums set to arrive in 2015, the trio have unveiled a video for new single Powerful.

Jonathan’s Pick of the Week Set to release their second album later this month, Citizen (not to be confused with their more indie plurals, Citizens!) have shared a new music video for Stain. Beginning with a heavy, yet harmonious melody, explosive larynx-shredding vocals quickly follow.
