Prolific indie rockers Guided by Voices have broken up again. The band announced the news on its website and canceled all of the tour dates on its planned fall trek. Ticket refunds are available at point of purchase. Guided by Voices Drum Auction Turns Ugly "Guided by Voices has come to an end," the band said in its statement. "With four years of great shows and six killer albums, it was a hell of a comeback run.... Thanks to everyone who has supported GBV." The group had reunited its "classic '93 – '96 lineup" in 2010 to play Matador Records' 21st anniversary concert. The band, whose membership has always revolved around frontman Robert Pollard, had broken up in 2004 with the singer-songwriter saying at the time that, after being a band since 1983, the time felt right. After the 2010 reunion concert, the group picked up the rigorous touring and recording schedule that made them indie icons in the Eighties and Nineties, when they often put out multiple records a year. Guided by Voices issued three full-lengths in 2012 alone, a full-length and an EP in 2013 and two in the first half of 2014, in addition to many, many seven-inches and singles. In December, Pollard told Rolling Stone he would consider working on a third Guided by Voices album, in addition to other projects, but "it depends on how much live work we get." "When I make an album, I tire of it pretty quickly," Pollard said in the interview to explain why he is so prolific. "I may listen to it for a week after it's finished and then I put it away. Within another few weeks, I may have written 10 or 15 new songs. By the time one album comes out, I'm already tired of listening to it and on to the next. I've got quite a few vehicles to work with." Pollard has not commented on why the group chose to disband.

Nearly fifty years after Marianne Faithfull released her debut LP Come My Way, the singer will unveil her 20th album Give My Love to London on November 11th. Every Faithfull album since 1999's Vagabond Ways has been an all-star affair, and Give My Love to London continues that trend with some old friends and new collaborators. Marianne Faithfull: My Ex Boyfriend Killed Jim Morrison Brian Eno, Portishead's Adrian Utley, the Bad Seeds' Warren Ellis and Jim Sclavunos and Ed Harcourt all contribute to the album, while Nick Cave, Roger Waters, Anna Calvi, Steve Earle and Tom McRae each provided music for Faithfull, with the singer penning her own lyrics to each track. Eno, Cave and Waters have all previously collaborated with Faithfull. Rob Ellis and Dimitri Tikovo produced Give My Love to London, which was then mixed by U2 producer Flood. Faithfull describes her latest LP as "an album of emotional extremes," which is evident on the Waters-penned "Sparrows Will Sing" that recalls the Pink Floyd bassist's Wall-era sound and angst. Faithfull will also kick off her 50th Anniversary Tour in October 2014 in Europe, with U.S. dates tentatively planned for 2015. Faithfull also has plans to share her incredible life story in the form of a photographic memoir titled A Life on Record.

Three years ago, the Scottish producer Rustie dropped Glass Swords, one of the most thrilling electronic albums of the decade. Defined by its visceral, explosive joy and a broad spectrum of synth sounds that blow raspberries on trap beats, it established Rustie as a global creative force and propelled him on a virtually non-stop tour schedule that still shows no signs of ceasing. The 30 Greatest EDM Albums With Rustie's latest album, Green Language, the producer has flipped the roygbiv maximalism of Glass Swords on its head, delving deeper into his broad synth trick-bag, kicking up new dance-floor dust and adding a host of vocalists (including Detroit bruiser Danny Brown, grime icon D Double E, and DC soul singer Muhsinah). Perhaps most interesting is his shift into textural ambient music, a dicey prospect for lesser producers with an eye towards Eno but layered and surprising from Rustie, the man who has made an art form out of producing songs that sound like your heart leaping from your chest. In advance of his next tour, which starts tonight in London and will include Green Language performed live with visuals, we spoke with Rustie about songwriting, airplanes and the alchemy of bird-talk. Last time we spoke, you lived right next to Heathrow Airport, and you were influenced by the plane sounds. Do you still live there?No, I'm back in Glasgow. It's good to be back here, with like, being close to my family and stuff and all my friends are here as well.It's interesting, because Green Language even feels like it's from a different place than Glass Swords. What was your approach in making it?While I was making most of the songs, I wasn't really thinking about the finished product, or the whole. I was just making songs. It wasn't the album started coming together that I started kind of thinking about how it's progressed or how different it is. Or is it too different, or is it not different enough? All of those sorts of things, compared to Glass Swords.Is that a concern when you're making songs, that they're going to be too different from your style?I never really kind of set out to make a certain type of music. I kind of just let the music sort of lay itself, and be where the ideas feel naturally where they want to go, let that happen naturally.Some of the songs are toned down. There's a shift in mood. What was your mood while you were making them? Were you doing transcendental meditation?[Laughs] No, it's pretty hard to meditate and make music at the same time! For Glass Swords, I initially had a lot weirder and more ambient stuff on there, but [the label] didn't really want that. For this album they were kind of just more confident in me. They were like, "Do whatever you want." So I'm getting into it now that I've proved myself. Most of it was written on the road, or in hotels, or on a plane or whatever, and then finishing it whenever I get sounds. But if you're on a plane anyway there's nothing really much else to do. I've got pretty good time to make music, apart from the loud noises, the plane engine. There's really not much else to do if you're on a long flight somewhere.You've worked with rappers and vocalists before, but there are a lot of features on this album. "Attak," featuring Danny Brown, was the first single from Green Language. Was there an idea of how you would work together?It was just an e-mail thing, really. We didn't really talk about music or anything. I'd just send him beats and he just did his thing. That's pretty much how it worked with everyone. Everyone's kind of really busy so it's good that you can just e-mail someone a track and they can just work on it whenever they've got the time to. I'd just send out a bunch of things to a bunch of people and see what came back. Obviously Danny, and he's one of the first people I got vocals from. And D Double E, I've loved his shit since day one. I was delighted that he came back so quickly. He's amazing live as well.You always have really distinct cover art that seems to be reflective of your music. So what's with the flamingos?I just started looking for a bunch of nature photography. That was the one that I liked the best, and it kind of looked similar, sort of, to the Glass Swords cover. It's like two birds instead of two crystals.Where did the title and concept of Green Language come from?Green language is actually a sort of esoteric, kind of mystical language that birds and animals speak to each other – a language that came before humans, if you know what I mean. I just kind of liked the name and the idea.Wait, green language is an actual thing? Like, dolphins speaking to each other?Yeah, it's a real thing. It's been used in a lot of different fields: mystical traditions, alchemy, hermetic prophecy, Egyptian philosophy and everything. I started reading about it like four years ago and thought it was cool and have kept it in my mind the past few years.Do you have synesthesia? Every musician always says they have it, but to me, your music actually sounds like you have it.No. But, I think I've had it before like when I was taking acid or magic mushrooms or whatever. That gave me kind of a feeling of what that's like, but I don't have that every day of my life.

Excessive drinking, public indecency and fighting are nothing new at concerts. Who hasn't seen a sloppy brawl break out in the beer line between two overserved fans? But the incidents that have occurred this past summer at a number of high-profile country shows had even the most seasoned concertgoers shaking their heads. Keith Urban Responds to Alleged Fan Rape at Boston Show In June, Luke Bryan's That's My Kind of Night Tour touched down at Heinz Field in Pittsburgh. Fans left parking lots strewn with trash and debris after all-day tailgating and proceeded to cause a number of disturbances inside the stadium, home of the NFL's Steelers. Emergency operators fielded 150 calls, with ambulances transporting 34 people to hospitals. Later in the summer, on July 26th, incidents at a Boston-area date of Keith Urban's Raise 'Em Up Tour at the XFinity Center in Mansfield, Massachusetts, were even more severe. With upwards of 50 people taken ill with alcohol sickness, authorities declared a mass casualty event and requested assistance from ambulances in neighboring communities. Most alarmingly, an 18-year-old man was charged with raping a 17-year-old fan on the lawn. Afterwards, Urban released a statement saying, "My team and I were horrified to learn of the events reported in Boston this past weekend and our hearts and prayers go out to all those affected. This type of behavior stands in stark contrast to the spirit of our shows." On August 17th, a 55-year-old male fan was rushed to the hospital after being pushed and hitting his head on the concourse during a Hank Williams Jr. concert in Michigan. The man later died. Tragically, more than his peers, Jason Aldean has seen firsthand what can happen both on tour and at large-scale concerts. With four incidents over the past year at his shows — including three deaths — the hard-touring artist has been seemingly snakebit on the road. In October 2013, Aldean's bus struck and killed a man who walked onto a highway in Indiana. The singer was onboard the coach at the time; his driver was not at fault. At Aldean's July 18th performance at Progressive Field in Cleveland, 22-year-old fan Cory Barron vanished from the ballpark. Apparently somehow falling down a trash chute, his body was found five days later in a county landfill. The cause of Barron's death is still undetermined. In a scarcely reported incident, a man committed suicide in the men's room of the Lakewood Amphitheater in suburban Atlanta during a May 16th concert by Aldean. According to an emailed statement from Atlanta Police Department spokesperson Kim Jones, "a janitor found an unresponsive male in a bathroom stall at the Lakewood Amphitheater during a concert. The male was found with a belt wrapped around his neck with his back against the stall door…. The scene was consistent with a suicide." Aldean also confirmed the Lakewood incident during a recent interview with Rolling Stone Country. "That was a pretty interesting year as far as that stuff goes. I saw some stuff during all that that I don't ever care to see again," the singer says somberly. "It was something that was really weird. It seems like we had a streak of things like that happening to us this year." The bad luck culminated in August, with a drunken driver striking a motorcycle cop after a performance by Aldean in Hartford, Connecticut. The singer says alcohol is often the lubricant for many of the episodes, but doesn't think the recent spate of concert misbehavior is unique to country music. "Bottom line, when people go to a show or do anything like that, like it or not, drinking is part of it. People are going to drink and they're going to have fun," Aldean says. "I don't know what you really attribute it to other than anytime there is alcohol involved, stuff like that is going to happen. Even if you're at a ballgame. Or a nightclub. Or wherever. You can't really say, 'It's country music.' That's ridiculous." Eric Church, who launched his massive Outsiders World Tour last week in Bossier City, Louisiana, admits his crowds can be particularly rowdy. He's also keenly aware of the tightrope one walks as a performer in encouraging their fans to let loose, but not at the expense of those around them. Or their own personal safety. "You want them to express themselves. You want them to get involved in the moment. Just like we do. But at the same time, you want to make sure that they're all leaving with the same experience," Church tells Rolling Stone Country. "When you have some who are affecting other people's experience, that's when you have to get involved. You want to make sure it's all equal for everybody. They can go as crazy as they want to, as long as they don't start affecting other people's crazy." Church, who started his career playing dive bars and rock clubs, believes the increasing draw of country music dovetails with the uptick in unfortunate occurrences. "The popularity of country may be underestimated a little bit there. I don't think we've ever dealt with an era where it was as popular as it is numbers-wise. When you start putting 20, 30,000 people in a place just like it used to be with rock and pop, you're going to have some incidents," he says. Aldean, however, doesn't think the size of the crowd factors into the publicity the events receive. He cites a more modern-age reason. "I don't care if you're playing to 30,000 people or to 500 people in a club. I've played clubs back in the day where people get stabbed or shot in the parking lot. I don't attribute that to there being more people [at country concerts]," he says. "Things like this have happened for years, like people getting trampled at shows. It's such a high-profile thing because of social media and the Internet." There's also the perception of what country music has traditionally been about, as well as who listens to the genre. While the cornerstone subjects of country songs include drinking, cheating and even murder, the country of the Nineties and onward favored a sunnier, more family-friendly approach. To some, it became "soccer mom music," which makes the recent concert issues feel all the more out of place. "I think it's seen more out of the norm because of historically what country has been known as," agrees Church. In the end, both artists strive for a safe and inclusive experience. "It's something that hopefully we can manage the right way that people, no matter your age or demographic, can still come and enjoy the show," Church says. "You want people to come out to your show to enjoy it and everybody to wake up the next day and talk about what a great time they had. You don't want somebody to come to the show and never make it home," says Aldean. "Unfortunately that kind of stuff is out of our hands." He also offers his own public service announcement. "People are adults and are responsible for their own actions," he says. "You come to a show and plan on drinking, get a driver. Call a cab. That's things that adults should just know. We can't make people do that stuff."
