Legendary Big Star mentor/producer Jim Fry died today at the age of 69. Fry was also the owner of Ardent Studios, which opened in 1966. Throughout the years so many notable acts recorded albums at Ardent including Led Zeppelin, R.E.M. and the White Stripes. Fry died after suffering from cardiac arrest this afternoon. His death comes less than a week after Ardent studio partner John Hampton, who died on December 12th from complications of cancer.

L7 is set to reunite in 2015. The band, which broke up almost 14 years ago, released a statement announcing the reunion and asking fans for their support (email addresses, spreading the news, etc). Read the posting in full below and catch up with L7 here.

Greetings People! We want you to know that the love and support you have shown us here on Facebook this year has taken us all a bit by surprise. What started as a simple band page for us to post some archival photos we had been sifting through for an upcoming L7 documentary has turned into a wellspring of enthusiasm for the band. For this WE THANK YOU!

Many of you have asked when we might return for a reunion. Well, it's been 14 years since our last show, longer if you consider our original line up. But we (Donita, Suzi, Jennifer, and Dee) are hearing you, we are talking about it, and we kinda agree. Why the hell not?

Here's the situation...

They say to raise a child it takes a village, well to get interest from promoters for L7 to do reunion shows it's going to take an ARMY. An army of you all. No joke.

Here's what we need...
We need your continued enthusiasm, your spreading the word by "Sharing" our posts and getting your friends and enemies to "Like" our page.

First and foremost WE NEED YOUR EMAIL ADDRESSES at our new website

We need to reach you all directly. No spam, no problem.

Let's show 'em all! Your love and support will make this happen!
For those about to rock, WE SALUTE YOU.

Love, L7 xo

Honeymilk is a brilliant newish band out of Stockholm, that blew everyone away with its debut album Lean On The Sun last year, drawing comparisons to the Strokes and Velvet Underground. This year the band, now a trio after the departure of its drummer, released a follow-up EP titled Sanguine Skies. The EP's latest single, "A Scene In Between" features a healthier dose of psychedelia than the songs from Lean On The Sun, but fans of their crunchy, fuzzy guitars will still love it to pieces. Stream two tracks from the EP below via Soundcloud [highly recommended listening for fans of Primal Scream, Happy Mondays, Drowners, Vaccines, and Velvet Underground.] Purchase Sanguine Skies from Amazon, and catch up with Honeymilk on Facebook.

Also take a listen to "Sea To Shining Sea" from 2013's Lean On The Sun, which is available to download on iTunes and Amazon.

A one-night only Mad Season reunion (of sorts) is planned for January 30th during the 4th annual Sonic Evolution concert.  The unique Seattle Symphony event takes place at Seattle's Benaroya Hall, and celebrates the city's rich musical history.  The first half of the program will include musical compositions influenced by Nirvana and Pearl Jam, and concludes with a piece composed by Mike McCready. After the intermission, original Mad Season members (guitarist McCready and drummer Barrett Martin) will be joined by guest vocalist Chris Cornell, and together they'll perform Mad Season songs backed by the Seattle Symphony.

Tickets for the event went on sale yesterday and sold out immediately. Fans interested in obtaining tickets can likely obtain them from a secondary seller, or hope the venue releases some extra tickets closer to the event.

Last year UK garage band Mourning Birds blew us away with their intense-and-awesome debut single "Oh Yeh." Since then, the three piece recorded their debut album in Wales, which was subsequently released on Japan's P Vine Records. While we wait for the album to (hopefully) be picked up elsewhere, Mourning Birds has premiered another frenetically charged single titled "Exile" plus they're giving it away as a free download! Head over here right away to grab your free download and stream "Exile" below. Be sure to catch up with Mourning Birds on Facebook.

FYI: If you never got around to checking out "Oh Yeh" be sure to remedy that immediately by streaming the official video below:

Ministry's Al Jourgensen launched Ministry Mondays earlier this year, and every Monday he goes through his archive and uploads a Ministry-related goodie for fans to download. Today he unearthed a rare previously unreleased song from 1983!  The track was originally recorded for With Sympathy but has never before been released until now. Download "Anything For You" for free here and stream the track in full below.

As previously reported Jourgensen is involved in the film titled The Bridge. Uncle Al will have a role in the film, along with Ministry bandmate Sin Quirin, Joey Santiago of the Pixies, and more. An indie go-go campaign for The Bridge was launched to help raise money for filming, editing, soundtrack recording sessions and more. Find out more about the project on the campaign page, and visit the project's official Facebook page.
