The Band of Heathens Premieres “Black Cat”, Based On An Epic Immigrant Story

When The Band of Heathens heard a very tall tale about a man who immigrated to New York in the early 1900s, they were so mesmerized by the imaginative story that they wrote a song about it near moments later and recorded it the very next day. And it would develop to be an even greater contender, fairing as an essential track on their upcoming album Stranger, due for release on September 25.

Lady Antebellum Sues the Singer Lady A Over Name Change 

The platinum-selling country group’s new name was already being used by a blues singer. Now they’re asking a court to affirm “a trademark we have held for many years.”

Wait now … what?  A white southern band changes fairly racist name to something already taken by a black woman, then sues the woman when she didn’t just give them her name. I can’t believe someone — anyone — in the band’s organization didn’t raise a hand and say, ” Ummm … wait a minute … we might want to rethink this.”
