Our Lady Peace will be in town this coming week. They've got two shows lined up (March 15th and 16th) at Centennial Hall in London, Ontario. March 17th, OLP will be playing a special acoustic Live X at the Spitfire & Firkin Pub in Windsor at noon (19 and over welcome, get there early space is limited!). March 18th OLP heads to Detroit to play the Fillmore.

If you're a fan of OLP, click here to read an interesting interview with Raine Maida. Maida talks about how the band almost broke up during the recording of Healthy in Paranoid Times. Here's an excerpt from the Jam Music article:

“It turned out to be a disaster,” L.A.-based vocalist Raine Maida admits. “The label wanted us to make Gravity part two and it just wasn’t working because that’s not how we work.”

Paired with proven hit-maker Bob Rock, 2005’s politically-charged “Healthy in Paranoid Times” was a sales disappointment that almost led to the band breaking up.

“There were a couple of times where I walked out of the studio,” the 40-year-old says. “I felt I couldn’t work with Bob anymore because he was being manipulated by the record company. The label kept saying, ‘We don’t hear a single,’ and we all felt pressured.

Linkin Park has filed a lawsuit against insurance company, Lloyd's of London. According to TMZ, the band canceled a handful of shows in 2008 after Chester Bennington hurt his back and was unable to perform. The band filed a claim with the insurance company, but it was subsequently denied after Lloyd's claimed Bennington's condition was pre-existing. The band has now filed a multi-million dollar suit.

OK Go has made it official--they have parted ways with label EMI. The band had been pretty vocal about their distaste for their label as of late, so it's not really surprising news. OK Go will release their music via their own record label Paracadute. Here's part of the band's official statement on the matter:

The band has left the EMI family of corporations to form their own enterprise, a homemade upstart called Paracadute. In addition to being humanity’s second most fun word to say (”pamplemousse” was taken), Paracadute is really just a way for the boys to continue doing what they’ve always done. Which is whatever they want. Being OK Go just got a little bit easier.

In more OK Go news, here's an interesting interview with vocalist Damian Kulash.
