Pretty Lights Mails Fans USB Drives Full Of Unreleased Music + Announces Return To Red Rocks & More

Pretty Lights has executed one of the most legendary marketing stunts to date. A select few of his most loyal fans received a package in the mail with very exclusive cargo. Included in the bundle was a poster that revealed new Pretty Lights Live tour dates as well as a USB drive with dozens of unreleased “flips” from Pretty Lights himself. The posters contained the following, or a similar, message on the back of them: 

Greetings, you have been chosen for a new Pretty Lights social experiment.  This package contains unreleased “flips” from Euphoria (April 2017), Okeechobee Music & Arts Festival (March 2017), and Telluride (August 2016).  As one of our most devoted fans, we are choosing you to not only spread this music organically far and wide, but to also share the message that we will be returning to Red Rocks Amphitheater in Morrison, CO on August 11-12 for the 9th consecutive year.  See you soon.

The “flips” are reworks of some of Pretty Lights’ most notable songs and were stored on a custom-engraved wooden USB drive.

This effort from Pretty Lights has thus far confirmed shows at Red Rocks on August 11-12 and Huntington Bank Pavilion at Northerly Island in Chicago on August 18-19.  We expect more dates to be rolled out as more fans unveil their findings.

Rocker Todd Rundgren Has A Trigger Warning For Trump Supporters

Todd Rundgren has a warning for supporters of President Donald Trump: Keep away.

Don’t come to my show,” Rundgren told Variety. “Because you won’t have a good time.”

Rundgren’s latest album features the anti-Trump song “Tin Foil Hat,” which he recorded with Donald Fagen of Steely Dan.

Variety’s Chris Willman said the new tune reminded him of seeing a couple walk out of a show last year after Rundgren criticized Trump from the stage. But the man behind hits such as “Hello It’s Me,” “I Saw The Light” and “Bang The Drum All Day,” said such a response doesn’t bother him. 

Addressing Trump supporters, he said: 

“I don’t understand your frickin’ values. Because I’m not singing about that. If you don’t understand that basic thing, you’re just fooling yourself. I guarantee that in this show, if you’re a Trump supporter, you will likely be offended. Let the buyer beware! I mean, if you can’t take a joke, or you can’t admit that you’ve made a mistake, you don’t belong with the rest of us.” 

Rundgren laughed at the end of his comments, Willman noted.

Along with his own career as a successful singer, songwriter and performer, Rundgren is an accomplished producer and engineer who has worked with Meat Loaf, Cheap Trick and The Band as well as Daryl Hall and John Oates.

Call Of Duty: WW2 Gets Massive Poster In Southern California

With months still to go before Call of Duty: WWII‘s release in November, Activision has installed a massive poster for the military shooter in southern California.

The Sledgehammer Games Twitter page brings us this image of the game’s poster as seen on Santa Monica Boulevard, nearby Activision’s headquarters in the city.

As the poster shows, Call of Duty: WWII comes out at the usual time for the series, launching on November 3 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.

We might be seeing more posters for the game soon, as Activision typically has a poster for the year’s Call of Duty game at the Los Angeles Convention Center, the site of E3.

While Call of Duty: WWII isn’t out until November, Activision is launching the Zombies Chronicles expansion for Call of Duty: Black Ops III later this week, first on PS4. It includes eight remastered Zombies maps from past Treyarch-developed Call of Duty games.

You can check out a longer gameplay trailer for the map pack here. It costs $30, more than the usual $15, because it includes eight maps instead of four.
