Random Video Thursday: Electric Six - Synthesizer (Official Video)

Can I just say how freaking catchy this is? I learned the lyrics after listening to it just once. 
Love this.
And if you don't, you're a damn dirty liar.

This Week in Music: Upcoming Tour for It Lies Within, New Album for Billy Idol announced, and More!

As we say goodbye to some really amazing events (such as Dragon*Con and Burning Man), we can count on a few more things to get excited about.

First off, It Lies Within kicks off "The True Vision" tour (with The Illumination, The Party Foul, and A Sight to See) on September 19th in Cleveland, Ohio. Here are some more tour dates!

Haven't heard of the bands performing with It Lies Within? Don't worry. We took a poll here; you're not alone...

Next on our list of holy-shit-no-way! is Billy Idol's new album, "Kings & Queens of The Underground." The album is planned for release on October 21st, but you can pre-order it now. I mean, really... how old is he now? And he's still kicking ass? 

Besides the new album, Billy Idol is going to be rocking our faces off with a new European tour starting on November 5th. Here are some of the dates:

Speaking of albums, Scott Bradlee of Postmodern Jukebox (famous for their cover of Macklemore's "Thrift Shop" - among other things) has announced that their new album "Historical Misappropriation" has just been released. 
"15 tracks, 7 of them brand new. The first video comes out today at 2pm EDT." Scott Bradlee
We're not going to sugarcoat it - we're pretty impressed. It seems like every other day they have a new song out (in reality, it's probably just every week - but even that is impressive)! We just hope this momentum keeps going.

Oh, and true to his word, here is their new video:

 In other, more solemn news, CeeLo Green deleted his twitter account following rape comments. According to NME, "CeeLo Green has deleted his Twitter account after posting a series of tweets relating to a recent court case in which he pleaded no contest to supplying ecstasy to a woman." 

This... yeah, we're not touching this story. We'll let you read it for yourself.

And now we get to Billy Corgan of The Smashing Pumpkins. He was quoted as saying, "When this new album process is over, I’m either going to bail on this ship for good or I’m going to have a new ship to sail on." (Full story here.) 

Could this be the end of The Smashing Pumpkins?

That's all for now. We will be working toward putting one of these out at the beginning and end of each week. Keep checking back, and don't forget to like Ninja Fish on Facebook for daily (and sometimes hourly) music updates: concert and event photos, free download links, contests, and more!
