We got to spend quite a lot of time backstage at Lollapalooza this year, interviewing a pile of our favourite artists - which you'll be seeing online in the days to come - and thought we'd bring you a few candid moments we captured over the weekend, from Peking Duk just after they destroyed it on stage to Chicago's own Twin Peaks, Angus and Julia Stone and a bit of a photobomb during our Hermitude interview.

Earlier today, it was revealed that UK outfit Django Django would be returning to Australia as part of the massive Falls Festival lineup over the New Years period (full lineup details HERE). Earlier this weekend, we caught up with Jimmy Dixon and Tommy Grace from the group while backstage at Lollapalooza in Chicago, to talk about their return to Australia, their latest album Born Under Saturn - and we find out why the new tracks have yet to become a dominating force amongst their sets. We also talk Metallica fans, defining moments and of course, cowbell.

Foals and Bloc Party lead the first artist announcement for the Falls & Southbound festivals!

Now that Splendour in the Grass is over for another year, Australian festival goers can now look ahead to the next major run of festivals coming up over the New Year period and for 2015, the crew behind the Falls and Southbound festivals have delivered a pretty slick line up of artists set to bring in your New Year right. Leading the first artist announcement of the festival tour are Foals and Bloc Party, both British bands who have long enjoyed a successful relationship with fans in Australia.

Django Django, Nothing But Thieves, Arborist and more among the highlights from day two of The Great Escape 2015!

On Friday night in Brighton, England, dozens - if not hundreds - of bands from the UK and around the world played across dozens of venues around the city for the second day of The Great Escape 2015. Our highlights from the day kicked off early with Plymouth singer/songwriter Jamie Lawson performing an intimate set in the Spiegelpub, fresh off his Australian tour with Ed Sheeran and Conrad Sewell. A far cry from the indoor stadiums he was playing there!

'The White Devil', Ouija Boards & Lunar Cycles: A track-by-track and stream of Django Django's new LP "Born Under Saturn"!

It's been a while since Django Django dropped their self-titled record in Australia, sending fans into a frenzy - a frenzy only to be built upon with their blazing energetic first live performances in the country a few years back. Today, the British band returns with the follow up to the 2012 debut, releasing the enticing and huge sounding Born Under Saturn. Playing with sonic textures and vibrant music has been an element of the Django Django creative output that has put (and kept) them on the radar successfully over the past few years and singles taken from this album prior to its release showed that the band was only pushing it further on this new album.

Album News Weekly: 29th April 2015

In This Issue: This week is giving us a taste of what May has in store in a big way! From King Gizzard to all the metal faves like In Hearts Wake, this week is full of some solid releases.

New Music Video: Django Django "First Light" (2015)

We were stoked to hear Django Django's new single "First Light" when it dropped as the first insight to their anticipated new album, Born Under Saturn. Today, the band premieres the music video to accompany their latest sound and it's as beautifully put together, glossy and shiny as you'd expect.

Impressive list of Australian artists including APES & REMi UK-bound for The Great Escape!

For many bands around the world, earning a spot on The Great Escape Festival in the UK means a great deal - you've got a huge load of exposure, the potential to discover new bands and of course, the opportunity to be discovered. In its 10th year in 2015, the Brighton-based festival releases a stellar line up of bands from around the globe, all set to descend on the site in May for what is touted as Europe's leading festival for new music.

Single Stream: Django Django "First Light" (2015)

Django Django are back! The British band, who rose to popularity in Australia quite quickly back in 2012 off the back of their debut record, have recently dropped their new single in "First Light". There's no current news about a follow up to Django Django, but we're excited to see the band releasing trickles of new tunes; this one is slinky, it's synth-y and it's a great way to wake up in a morning and go, 'Oh yeah, I'm going to go back and listen to Django Django'. Hurry up with some more new stuff, please!

Album Review: Django Django - Late Night Tales Sessions (2014 LP)

Just when fans were getting impatient that there was no sophomore album to Django Django’s self-titled masterpiece earlier in 2012, they team up with the Late Night Tales Collective to bring this 21-track installment with the lovely, annunciated words of Benedict Cumberbatch closing this piece with a late night story.

Live Review: Django Django + Palms + Twinsy - The Hi Fi (13.01.13)

Since joining in on the buzz surrounding Django Django mid last year, I was utterly eager yet unsuccessful in seeing the quirky 4 piece during their first visit to Australia which included an appearance at Splendour in the Grass 2012 and sideshows with The Cast of Cheers in tow. I thought my time had finally come at Falls Festival only a few weeks ago but working there meant potentially missing some bands and to my absolute devastation, their set was my sacrifice. So quite naturally I was beyond excited to make the 90 minute drive from Ballarat to Melbourne for their final Falls sideshow at the Hi Fi.

Live Review: Django Djano + Palms + Twinsy - Metro Theatre (11.01.13)

Django Django’s show at The Metro was the largest one they’ve ever performed in Sydney. The Scotland-via-London group keep on going from strength-to-strength having released their critically acclaimed, eponymous debut album and will be headlining the NME Awards Tour in the UK next month. Their second show in Sydney in just six months was a solid performance and further proof of the band’s ability to continue on the steep rise up.
