The Cool Kids have combined forces with Travis Barker to release a new single called "Jump Down". The track will appear on Barker's new LP coming next month, but you can download it here for free. The download will also come with a free pair of 3D glasses that be used to watch the video for the track which will be release on Oct. 11th.

Only Ok Go could capture over 1 million views in 24 hours, and they have done that with the latest video for the track "White Knuckles".

The band will be back in Chicago on Oct 10th at House of Blues.

The Deli announces 7 stages at the CMJ Music Marathon 2010

Deli Readers,

We've been working very hard to take as many bands as possible to this year's CMJ Music Marathon. As a matter of fact we aren't 100% finished with booking yet, but close enough to announce that we will have 6 shows and 7 stages during CMJ 2010 - in 5 different venues on 4 different days! As usual, there will be a smosgarboard of bands (around 50) mostly from NYC - including Keepaway, Oberhofer, Brahms, Bear Hands, Anni Rossi, Buke and Gass, The Rassle, The Living Days, Electric Tickle Machine, Chappo... and a welcome bunch of "foreigners" from other scenes we cover, like buzz-bands Blackbird Blackbird (SF), Bad Cop (Nashville), and Strand of Oaks (Philly).


We would also like to thank the 950+ artists that submitted through The Deli to play one of our CMJ parties - a dozen of them were selected by us and the venues. We really wish we could have picked more, it was a heart breaking process...

By the way, if your band wasn't selected for CMJ 2010, you may want to check out this article we wrote just for you, about how to improve your chances to be part of it next year. Hope you find it helpful!
