The end for Lukestar

Indie-pop group Lukestar have announced their impending split. After over two-hundred shows and three albums (including the Spellemann-winning Lake Toba in 2008), the group will go their seperate ways after a final goodbye concert in Oslo on August 31st.

“We have played in this band for over half our lives, and given out all our albums on our own label”, wrote the band in a statement, “Lukestar has over all these years followed us like a friend and also sometimes like a slavedriver which has taken us along for things we could only ever have dreamed of experiencing. Our 2011 album Taiga stands in our view as the culmination of Lukestar’s sound.”

Turbonegro unleash new single

Last summer Norwegian ‘deathpunk’ cult favourites Turbonegro replaced iconic former frontman Hank Von Helvete with former Dukes of Nothing vocalist (not to mention onetime President of the London chapter of the Turbojugend fan club and the band’s UK press officer) Tony Sylvester.

They have been working on an album follow-up to 2007’s Retox, and the first morsel of new material has now been unleashed. It’s called ‘You Give Me Worms’. Plus ├ža change.
