Belvedere released their fifth full length album The Revenge of the Fifth on the 5th of May via Lockjaw Records. Belvedere was formed way back in 1995 but the band broke up in late 2005 (I’m sensing a lot of 5’s here….), and after seven years apart they finally came back together for a reunion tour in 2012, which led us to now. The Revenge of the Fifth was recorded at Echo Base Studio in Calgary and was mixed and mastered at the Blasting Room in Colorado.
Overhead, The Albatross are hitting up Vicar Street on December 9th. Tickets go on sale Friday the 20th at 9am.

Anyone seen the new official trailer for Assassin’s Creed??? If not, do. It’s awesome.
Due for release December 2016, this film is adapted from the video game series made by Ubisoft. Personally, I haven’t played the game much (nerdy fact: I enjoy watching video games being played and I have watched this game a LOT) but I feel the film is going to incorporate the right aspects of the games in the best possible way. Hopefully it will be made in such a way that it will keep avid gamers happy but also allow new audiences to just enjoy it as a film.
[FYI: anyone who hasn’t played the game and wants to, this trailer alone kinda gives away the whole foundation of the game.]
Being brought to you by the amazing team behind Macbeth (2015), Michael Fassbender and Marion Cotillard team up again with Justin Kerzel at the helm. If Macbeth is anything to go by, this film will be cinematic as f*ck! Set in Renaissance times, the first indication of timeline we get is “Welcome to the Spanish Inquistion” so the movie may or may not incorporate the games of Assassin’s Creed II, Brotherhood or Revelations. I’m also interested in this female assassin character that has popped up in the trailer… Either way, I am excited!

5 piece Welsh pop punkers Seven Stories High are releasing a mini-album on the 20th of May. Take The Long Road Home is 6 tracks of your usual infectious pop punk, but with a hint of those bands from the mid-2000s that only sat on the fringes of the pop punk scene. The best way I can think to describe them is if Four Year Strong and Kids In Glass Houses made a record together, and its the KIGH vocals in them that gives makes them stand out a little more.
