You’re in the right place if you’ve missed any of the week’s top news stories – here Live4ever’s Weekly News Round-Up presents a recap of the biggest and best headlines we featured during the last seven days.
It’s nearly ten years since Supergrass declared their intention to part ways, saying at the time: “We still love each other but, cliché notwithstanding, musical differences have led to us moving on and of course we all wish each other well in the future.”
Now, 25 years on from the release of their debut album I Should Coco, one of Britain’s most successful bands of the nineties is back. “Everything aligned for us to make this happen for 2020,” Danny Goffey has said.
The 1975 will start a UK and Ireland tour shortly before the release of their fourth studio album Notes On A Conditional Form.

Roger Daltrey and Pete Townshend have confirmed their first Who album in thirteen years for release on November 22nd.

Green Day have announced their new album Father Of All… for release on February 7th, 2020.
The title-track is available now while Green Day have also unveiled the details of the Hella Mega Tour with Fall Out Boy, Weezer and The Interrupters.
There’s plenty of classic, baby-boomer era albums reaching their 50th anniversaries at the moment, and the latest to get a reissue is The Rolling Stones‘ Let It Bleed.
Second in the almost unrivalled run of studio album releases from the Stones under the guidance of Jimmy Miller which began in 1968 with Beggars Banquet, Let It Bleed has been remastered for this re-release on November 1st.
The death of singer-songwriter Daniel Johnston has been announced by his family.
Johnston rarely troubled the mainstream, but particularly from the late eighties onwards his influence on alternative music in the US and beyond took hold, his self-released, truly independent work recognised and hailed by the likes of Kurt Cobain, Tom Waits and, since his passing, countless more on social media.
