The Rolling Stones to end ZIP CODE tour at Festival d'été de Québec






March 31, 2015 - Québec City - Ladies and gentlemen...The Rolling Stones are back!  The band has announced that they will kick off their new 15-city North American stadium, ZIP CODE tour, in San Diego on May 24 at Petco Park. The tour will make stops in Columbus, Minneapolis, Dallas, Atlanta, Orlando, Nashville, Pittsburgh, Milwaukee, Kansas City, Raleigh, Indianapolis, Detroit and Buffalo before wrapping in Québec on the Plains of Abraham on July 15 at Festival d'été de Québec. This last concert being their only performance in Canada. Passes for Québec will go on sale Saturday, April 11 at 12pm local time. For ticketing information please visit infofestival.comor rollingstones.com.

"The Rolling Stones show underlines the Festival's placement among top music events worldwide. We expect fans from all over to converge on Québec City for the band's only show date in Canada, putting the Festival and the city in the spotlight, with great spinoffs for tourism," said Daniel Gélinas, general manager of the Festival. "It's an honor to host the legendary Stones, and their concert, adding tremendous excitement to an already very impressive 2015 lineup, will no doubt be a dream come true for so many of our local and international festival fans," he added.

Festival d'été de Québec, one of Canada's most important outdoor music festival, is set in modern, yet historic and picturesque Québec City. With global shows attendance usually topping over one million entries each season, the Festival celebrates music for 11 days in July. With 10 indoor and outdoor venues, it offers the perfect setting to discover up-and-coming artists and enjoy world-renowned stars.

 "We are excited to be back in North America playing stadiums this summer!  We are looking forward to being back on stage and playing your favorite songs." - Mick Jagger

"We love being out on the road and it is great to come back to North America!  I can't wait to get back on the stage!" - Keith Richards

The Rolling Stones ZIP CODE tour will see Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts and Ronnie Wood head back out on the road after their critically-acclaimed 14 ON FIRE tour in Asia, Europe, Australia and New Zealand in 2014. The iconic band will treat their generations of fans to special one night only shows, with a set packed full of classic Stones hits such as "Gimme Shelter", "Paint It Black", "Jumpin' Jack Flash", "Tumbling Dice" and "It's Only Rock 'N' Roll", as well as special gems from their extraordinary catalog.

The Rolling Stones ZIP CODE tour will be the first time the rock legends have played North American stadiums since 2005-2007's "A Bigger Bang Tour."

The stage design includes a thrust that extends deep into the audience allowing the Stones to interact directly with their fans. Known for their ground-breaking sets and use of cutting-edge technology, the Stones' set design will feature video screens and special effects that will enhance the high-octane experience of attending a live Stones' show.

AEG Live's Concerts West is the promoter of The Rolling Stones ZIP CODE tour.

The tour will also coincide with the Rolling Stones re-release of  Sticky Fingers on May 26 by Universal Music. Sticky Fingers , one of the most revered albums from the Rolling Stones, is set to enthrall a new generation of fans in 2015. The 1971 classic features timeless tracks such as 'Brown Sugar,' 'Wild Horses,' 'Bitch' and 'Dead Flowers'. Sticky Fingers 2015, with its iconic zip cover, will be unveiled in a variety of formats. The deluxe editions include a generous selection of previously unreleased Stones studio outtakes from the  Sticky Fingers  sessions and stunning live performances from that time. These sought after tracks have never been available until this release.

Recorded in Muscle Shoals, Alabama and Olympic Studios in London, and produced by regular confidant Jimmy Miller,  Sticky Fingers  was released just before the Stones became tax exiles in the south of France, leaving Britain after a sensational farewell tour. It also featured some of the most ground breaking design in rock history, with its famous working zip on the front cover and artwork by Andy Warhol.

PINS Share Cover Of The Misfits 'Hybrid Moments'

New Album Wild Nights
Out June 9th On Bella Union

Announce UK Tours With Wire And Drenge

Manchester all-female four-piece PINS have just released a new 7" in the UK for 'Too Little Too Late'. The B-side to the 7" is a cover of The Misfits 'Hybrid Moments', a track the band also perform live, which was recorded for Part Time Punks and mixed byJosiah Mazzaschi. PINS' Faith Vern describes it as "a simple and perfect pop song! We started to play it live to make everyone dance, we recorded it with Part Time Punks and gave it a PINS stamp with lots of choir girl harmonies."

PINS have announced the release of their new album Wild Nights on June 9th.  Recorded in Joshua Tree at Rancho De La Luna with Dave Catching (QOTSA, Eagles of Death Metal) and Hayden Scott, and mixed in New York with Ben Baptie at Atomic Sound NYC (Mark Ronson), PINS second album Wild Nights will be released through Bella Union on June 9th.

The video for the first single 'Too Little Too Late' sees PINS, dressed exclusively bySaint Laurent, cut between visuals of screaming and swearing girls amidst overflowing glitter and powder, 'Too Little Too Late' is the perfect taster of the bands new album. Opening with a fearless drumbeat and heavy bassline, the track slows into a sparse momentary instrumental before reverting back to Faith's alluring vocal and finally stampeding heavily into a fuzzed up sound clash of guitars and drums.

Wild Nights Track Listing
Baby Bhangs
Young Girls
Curse These Dreams
Oh Lord
Dazed By You
Got It Bad
Too Little Too Late
House of Love
If Only
Everyone Says

Accumulating high praise and a growing fanbase for their debut album Girls Like Us, along with packed out headline shows and tour dates supporting the likes of Crocodiles, Sleigh Bells, Warpaint, The Growlers and The Fall, tight-knit girl gang PINS have had quite a two years.

Make The Girl Dance Takes Us Back in Time

French Duo Make the Girl Dance
Unleashes French Electro-Pop Gold
With Extraball
(Ultra Records) 

Yé Yé (Ooh La La)” Video Out Now on Earmilk 
“' Ye Ye (Ooh La La)' is uniquely French, and with the addition of Ornette 's vocals and simple guitar riffs, becomes a lens into 60's surf rock. “ - Earmilk 
 (photo by Flavien Prioreau) 
Click HERE for Video 

Premiering on Earmilk, “YéYé (Ooh La La)” is the first video off of Make the Girl Dance’s highly anticipated sophomore release Extraball.  
It’s with some 60’s rock influences that the Parisian electro duo Make The Girl Dance has decided to conquer the world’s dance floors. The first extract of their second album ‘Extraball’ surprises once again by surpassing the electronic music’s borders and drifting into some old-school rock tunes which were directly inspired by the most glamorous period of French music: the YéYé. ‘YéYé’ is the title of the first single, as well, which sounds like an international smash hit, bouncing and persistent, just like a bouncing ball. 

            This metaphor was the source for the music video. The video is as foolish, fresh, and off-key as the band itself. Greg starts throwing the bouncing ball in Malibu, California. With a bit of luck and force, this ball might bounce across the United States to eventually arrive on the East Coast, more precisely, New York City, where Pierre is impatiently waiting for it. A fun and magical video, during which a little yellow ball seems to come alive to make us visit this huge country: from the Joshua Tree Canyons to the bayous in Louisiana and making stopovers on the Aircraft boneyard in Arizona and in some disused factories.  “It reminds us of the unifying nature of music, and the way communication can make our world seem smaller than it really is,” explains Earmilk. 

Their first album’s success is undeniable: their video clips have more than 40 million views ( Baby Baby BabyKill MeTchiki Tchiki Tchiki…), their music is synchronized on some massive TV campaigns such as Microsoft, Magnum Ice Cream, Victoria’s Secret or Nivea as well as on TV shows ( Gossip GirlCastleJersey Shore…) and blockbusters (lately, for Luc Besson's movie Lucy) and they’re still releasing infectious tracks and videos. Last but not least, the guys keep touring since years across the world (Europe, USA, Canada, Japan, Korea, Singapore, Turkey, Russia...), in other words: three times around the world in only five years! Composed in sunny Los Angeles and recorded and mixed in less sunny Paris, Make The Girl Dance will release their new album Extraball on May 4, 2015. 
The new record holds all elements true to Make the Girl Dance’s infectious beats and pumping original sounds that build a soundtrack to your own imaginative video clips. With songs like “Your Spring,” an ethereal track surely made to send the listener into a deep reverie, and a pulsating “Dancing In Nowhere,” featuring the voice of Swiss electro-punk duo Solange la Frange.
