Whilst their debut, "A Brief History of Love" received a huge amount of fanfare and hype, this new album has arrived with nothing more than a murmur and almost zero momentum behind it.

Coachella announced its line-up for 2012 on Monday (January 9, 2012), naming the likes of The Kaiser Chiefs, Noel Gallagher and The Hives among its three-day bill to take place firstly between April 13th to 15th and then a weekend later on the 20th to the 22nd. Also a couple of bands reformed.
