Interview & Giveaways: Fenech-Soler
Still fresh after all these years, electro-pop band Fenech-Soler is currently riding a wave of success for their newest record, Zilla. Like any long-running or collaborative band, there is a lot of history to their name, including a short (and successful!) battle with cancer, lineup changes that saw the band lose its namesake member, and an undying love for danceable pop music. We got the chance to speak to the band about the new album, tour, and the state of the music industry as it is; read the interview below! Fenech-Soler is headed to the States for a spring tour, and Thrillcall is giving away tickets! Browse the full list of tour dates after the jump.Read the interview...

Interview: Bombadil Embark on Tour!
Bombadil has had a long and storied career, filled with camaraderie, carpal tunnel, and lots and lots of earnest music. Earlier this year, they released their sixth studio album, Fences, which is a beautiful and simple folk record--which is exactly what they wanted after a few hectic years. They used to be a quartet that dwindled to a duo, but are back on the road as a trio with a new face and the same sweet tunes; see the full list of tour dates below!See the tour dates here!
Interview: The Score
If you're a native of the UK, you probably know The Score subconsciously from the popular grocery chain, Asda's advert that ran frequently a few summers ago. If you're living in LA, you can probably name that song ("Oh My Love"!) and several others from their back catalogue, especially if you're a live music fan; the band has established themselves after playing many of the most iconic venues around the city. They have some new music coming, which you can read about in our exclusive interview below. And don't miss their show tomorrow at Amplyfi!Read the interview...
Chaz Bundick Meets The Mattson 2 Spring Tour
Given the state of modern music and its fabricated pop icons, what Chaz Bundick Meets The Mattson 2 achieves is a collective music victory in a new era of progressive soundscapes. World-renowned composer/producer extraordinaire Chaz Bundick (Toro Y Moi, Les Sins) has teamed up with the psychedelic-jazz grooves of The Mattson 2 for an album that unifies a trio's creativity into a refreshing project of unhinged sonic originality.See the tour dates here!

INTERVIEW & GIVEAWAY: Chris Shiflett (of Foo Fighters)
Chris Shiflett is a restless musician, whose brand new record, West Coast Town, comes out April 14th on Side One Dummy Records. Shiflett is best known for his role in Foo Fighters as the band's guitarist, but has sown seeds of a solo project for some years now. His love for Bakersfield country music shines through in his work: Shiflett's self-titled first record dropped in 2010, followed up three years later with a record of covers, and West Coast Town promises to be a rip-snorting good time.Read more and win tickets...

Foxygen is on Tour! Win Tickets!
Foxygen began 2017 with a brand new LP, titled Hang, the band's fifth full length record since forming in 2005. The band referred to it as their "first proper studio album," but then again, it seems like Foxygen has always liked to do things in reverse. On their high school aged debut, they had insatiable curiosity for new sounds, so they bought instruments they didn't know how to play; despite this, the duo still insisted on using them in their live shows. When they traveled in 2015 surrounding their last record, they called it their Farewell Tour, implying that they may very well cease existing once they returned home. But they are most certainly back, playing dates across the country, supported by bedroom pop up-and-comer Gabriella Cohen.See the full list of giveaways here!
