LYNDA KAY, LEMMY AND THE LONG-LOST MASK
8/23/19

Singer-songwriter Lynda Kay has released a duet with the late, great IanLemmyKilmister of Motörhead, “The Mask,” via Dreamphonic Records. Once believed to have been lost, the song was recently recovered and reveals the speed-metal god's more introspective, melodic side.

Kilmister, who began writing “The Mask” in 1979, finished the track in 2009 with Kay; he died in 2015. Now, a decade later, it's the lead single from Kay’s double album Black & Gold, out now. 

A selection of songs from Kay’s album, which features 20 original and cover songs produced by her husband, Johnny Coffin, will also be featured in the Amazon Prime series Goliath, on which Kay co-stars with Billy Bob Thornton. The Golden Globe-winning series premieres on 10/12.

In addition to “The Mask,” other Kilmister music will be reissued in a new box set titled 1979, bringing music from Motörhead’s Overkill and Bomber albums along with live performances and outtakes. The collection is set for release on 10/25 via BMG. You can stream “The Mask” below.

WITH A KNIFE PARTY
8/21/19

United Talent Agency has recently signed electronic musicians Pendulum and Knife Party for North American and Canadian representation. Pendulum/Knife Party frontman Rob Swire brings his artist projects exclusively to UTA starting this summer.

Drum-and-bass trio Pendulum will play the U.K.’s largest electronic music festival, South West Four, on Sunday (8/25) with their new show, Pendulum Trinity, and will feature new music from their upcoming EP, set for release later in 2019. The performance also kicks off their Trinity World Tour and marks their first show in over a decade with the band’s original three members, consisting of Swire, Gareth McGrillen, and Paul Harding, outside of their native Australia.

The signing also coincides with Knife Party’s release of their new EP Lost Souls, the first in almost four years from Swire and McGrillen. The EP includes the Zane Lowe praised single “Death & Desire” featuring Harrison, as well as “No Saint,” “Ghost Train,” and “Lost Souls.” Swire and McGrillen have also launched the Knifecast podcast, with guests that have included Jauz, Sub Focus, Kill The Noise, and Tom Morello, among others.

Pendulum and Knife Party are both repped by Decade Management. Pendulum’s Trinity World Tour will include shows across the UK, Europe, North America and Asia through 2020.
