NME Festival blog: Flight of the Conchords release new ‘Live in London’ single, ‘Father and Son’


The comedy duo toured the UK earlier this year

Flight of the Conchords have released the single ‘Father and Son’, lifted from their Live in London HBO special. Check it out below.

The New Zealand comedy duo – aka Bret McKenzie and Jermaine Clement – performed the ballad-with-a-twist on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert back in September. Ahead of the TV appearance, UK audiences saw the track being performed during the pair’s UK tour over the summer.

Flight of the Concords

The Hammersmith Apollo date in July was recorded for the HBO special, Flight of the Conchords: Live in London. Following the release of the hour-long special in October, the group have now made the ‘Father and Son’ recording available to fans via streaming platforms.

During the piano-led song, Clement takes on the role of a dad consoling his child. “Son, I know it’s hard to see your daddy cry / It’s been tough on us both since your mamma died,” he sings. McKenzie replies: “You know very well Dad mamma didn’t die / She just hooked up with another guy / That’s where you pick me up on Fridays nights.”

Back in June, Clement and McKenzie spoke about the possibility of a third season. “It’s not like we were tired of each other’s company,” McKenzie said. Clement added: “We were tired of working together.”

The original show premiered in 2007, with the second season arriving in 2009. Later that year, the duo announced that it would not return for a third instalment.

NME Festival blog: Release date for Motley Crüe’s highly-anticipated biopic ‘The Dirt’ announced


The film is based on the band’s no-holds-barred autobiography

The release date for Motley Crüe‘s highly-anticipated biopic The Dirt has been confirmed.

The film, which is based on the no-holds-barred 2001 autobiography of the same name, has been in the works since 2006. Filming eventually began earlier this year, with the band serving as producers on the project.

Frontman Vince Neil shared news of when fans could expect to see The Dirt on Twitter. “Wow!!! Just left Netflix offices,” he wrote. “Just saw The Dirt movie!! Fuckin’ awesome!! Can’t wait for everyone to see it! Released March 22!! Yea!!!” Netflix representatives have confirmed the release date.

In the movie, Neil will be played by actor Daniel Webber, while rapper Machine Gun Kelly (Tommy Lee), Douglas Booth (Nikki Sixx), and Game Of Thrones‘ Iwan Rheon (Mick Mars) will complete the line-up.

Earlier this year, it was announced Motley Crüe had recorded four new songs for the film’s soundtrack after Lee and Sixx were photographed in the studio together.

“Fück can I just say it?” Sixx wrote about the new songs on Twitter. “I’m listening to the roughs of the new @MotleyCrue and it feels real and raw.Everybody is playing like mad and the songs crush.  Bob Rock brought the sounds. Plus we have a surprise that will confirm that we’re outta our minds.”

Motley Crüe quit touring in 2015 and signed an agreement saying they would never tour again. They last released new music in 2008 with the album ‘Saints Of Los Angeles‘ and, while they haven’t said they won’t release any more new music, have been inactive on that front since.

NME Festival blog: Coldplay expected to release new music today


This is not a drill

Coldplay are expected to drop new music later today – but under a brand new band name, Los Unidades.

Parlophone, Coldplay’s record label, tweeted: “Parlophone Records are delighted to present new signing #LosUnidades” together with a shadowy picture of four individuals who fans have pointed out look remarkably similar to Coldplay.

Coldplay also liked the tweet, leading fans to further speculate about the real identity of Los Unidades. Coldplay fan account ColplayXtra also appear to have investigated the announcement further and discovered a legal trademark agreement which lists the owners of Los Unidades as Chris Martin, Jon Buckland, Guy Berryman and Will Champion.

Additionally, at the bottom of the poster, there is also text reading: ‘Y02LPAC81ODL’ – an anagram of ‘COLDPLAY2018’. Fans have spotted that Los Unidades social media accounts have also been registered.

A further announcement about Los Unidades is expected today (November 27) at 5pm.

Sources close to the band have previously hinted that they are working on new material, with their friend and collaborator Mat Whitecross revealing that they were planning on being back in the studio next year.

Having known the band since university, Supersonic director Whitecross recently released ‘A Head Full Of Dreams‘ – a new film that tells the full 20 year history of the band via up-close, personal and unseen footage. “They’re on a sabbatical at the moment so they’ve been ruthlessly on holiday for a year,” Whitecross told NME.

“They’ve never done that before. I don’t know if you can call Chris a workaholic because he loves what he does; he’s in and out of the studio writing three or four songs a day…This year, they decided to take off. They haven’t been doing anything as far as I know, but they do have plans for next year however I’ve not been party to them.”

Asked if he knew anything about where the band plan to take their sound on their upcoming eighth album, Whitecross replied: “I’ve heard a few things and filmed a few bits of them talking about it, but I don’t think I’m allowed to share anything. It’s interesting.”

NME Festival blog: Sigur Ros’ Jónsi to release lost triple album of solo recordings next week


The recordings date back to 2000-2004

Sigur Ros frontman Jónsi is set to release a lost triple album of solo recordings dating back to 2000-2004.

Recording under the moniker Frakkur, the music was never given an official release, with much of it thought to have been lost due to corrupted hard drives.

Years later, the songs were recovered from a CD that had been given to a friend and the previously unreleased Frakkur, 2000-2004 compilation is now set to be released digitally on November 23.

The compilation, which features 24 songs, was released last year as a limited-edition, vinyl-only release that featured only half of the songs.

Each of the three albums collects material from a specific period, each recorded in a different way. The oldest group of recordings, titled 2000-2001, was made on the musician’s first PC laptop.

The second roundup of material from 2002-2003 was made on a Yamaha RS-7000 using samples of beat-up toys he’d purchase from secondhand stores.

The final record in 2003-2004 was helmed using the program Logic as well as a Yamaha VSS-30 toy keyboard.

The release comes just weeks after Troye Sivan and Jónsi shared their first ever collaboration, ‘Revelation’.

The two artists linked up for a spot on the soundtrack to the recent film Boy Erased, which Sivan has a supporting part in.

The Long Night is here, everyone. Game of Thrones Season 7 bowed out with an epic final episode in which we learned of Jon’s true parentage and saw The Night King and its Ice Dragon break down The Wall and move on Westeros.

But we’re looking forward to Game of Thrones Season 8 already, so here’s absolutely everything we know about the show’s final episodes, including release date, casting news and trailers. 

Latest updates: 

  • The details of the first episode’s opening scenes have been revealed
  • Peter Dinklage hints at Tyrion Lannister’s final fate – it sounds very ominous
  • Sophie Turner hints at divisive end to the show – and explains the secrecy involved in filming
  • Peter Dinklage teases a huge scene bigger than the Battle of the Bastards.
  • First trailer from Season 8 revealed
  • New release date reported as April 21
  • Jaime Lannister will appear in all episodes of the final season despite earlier reports suggesting otherwise
  • Executive producer Bryan Cogman has teased what fans can expect to see in the final six episodes

When is Game of Thrones Season 8 returning?

At the 2018 Television Critics Association tour, HBO‘s programming president Casey Bloys offered more details on when we will see GoT‘s final outing. With the show previously announcing 2019 for its release, Bloys was asked if he could be more specific. “First half,” he said.

After Game of Thrones‘ official account confirmed a 2019 release date for the show, Metro published an interview with Maisie Williams in which she appeared to say it will return in April 2019, after wrapping in December 2018. In the interview, she reportedly said: “We wrap in December and we air our first episode in April [2019]. That’s a four-month turnaround for these huge episodes. There’s a lot that goes into the final edit. You would not want to rush this season at all. We owe it to our audience and our fans to really do this final season to the best of our abilities.”

However, Williams has denied giving the quote reported by Metro, writing on Twitter: “This Game of Thrones release date ‘quote’ I’ve supposedly given is completely false and taken from an interview I did years ago.

Entertainment Weekly, however, are suggesting that HBO are keen for the show to be eligible for the 2019 Emmys. To do that, it means that all six episodes will have needed to air by the end of May 2019. That leaves April 21, as the latest possible return date, should they want to make that deadline.

Game of Thrones Season 8 was originally slated to return in late 2018 or early 2019. Sophie Turner, who plays Sansa, previously suggested that the show would return in 2019 during an interview with Variety, and HBO officially confirmed the news on January 4.

How Will Season 8 start?

Although details remain pretty scant on the ground as a whole, we’ve been provided with a few telling glimpses of how Season 8 will start.

As revealed by EntertainmentWeekly, things will get rather cyclical.

It’s said to hark back to the first ever episode, and we’ll see the Starks awaiting the arrival of a royal visitor in Westerfell. But instead of King Robert, the episode will see the arrival of Daenerys Targaryen.

It is also told that we should expect some pretty terse showdowns between major characters – Sansa is expected to become angry at Jon Snow for bending the knee.

We are told that the confrontations between characters, some of whom have never met before, will be tense. One example is that Sansa expresses her displeasure over Jon Snow bending the knee.

Producer Bryan Cogman also believes that the show will flip the vision of George RR Martin on its head.

“[Season 8] is about all of these disparate characters coming together to face a common enemy, dealing with their own past, and defining the person they want to be in the face of certain death,” Cogman said.

“It’s an incredibly emotional, haunting, bittersweet final season, and I think it honours very much what George set out to do – which is flipping this kind of story on its head.”

How will season 8 end?

While we don’t know the details of the plotline yet, some of the show’s stars have hinted at how the final episode might leave fans feeling. Sophie Turner is the latest, suggesting it could be a divisive finale.

“To be able to act out the way that it all ends, it was really satisfying for us,” she told IGN. “Who knows if it will be satisfying for the fans? I think a lot of fans will be disappointed and a lot of fans will be over the moon, I think.”

She continued: “It will be really interesting to see people’s reactions, but for me reading the script, it was just heartbreaking to read. At the very final page of the script, it just says, ‘End of Game of Thrones‘ [and] that was really emotional.”

Speaking to EntertainmentWeekly, Turner also discussed the emotional toll of concluding filming on the show.

“I still don’t accept that it’s done,” she said. “It’s basically been the majority of my life. I’m still very much processing it.”

Turner also says she was joined by fellow cast members on her final day, while showrunners David Benioff and DB Weiss provided a handwritten note for her alongside a storyboard of their favourite Sansa Stark moment.

Unsurprisingly, filming proved a very secretive process.

“We have a whole different name for it when we’re shooting it. I think this season it was like The Tree of Life or something”, she explained to Vulture.

They also use a specialised device that kills any drones flying over the set.

“I don’t know how it does it. It creates like this field around and the drones just drop,” she said. “Also, we shoot fake scenes. We got into costume in Croatia because we know the paparazzi lurk around there, so we would spend like half a day doing nothing.”

Executive producer Bryan Cogman has teased what will happen in the final episodes of Game of Thrones, saying that theywill honour George R.R Martin’s original intentions.

He said: “[Season 8] is all about all of these disparate characters coming together to face a common enemy, dealing with their own past, and defining the person they want to be in the face of certain death.”

He added: “It’s an incredibly emotional, haunting, bittersweet final season, and I think it honours very much what George set out to do – which is flipping this kind of story on its head.”

Who’s going to die in season 8?

As Entertainment Weekly reports, a data scientist has done loads of maths with 2,000 characters from GoT and figured out the likelihood of various character deaths. You can see them below – with Daenerys at the most risk:

  • Daenerys Targaryen – 83.77%
  • Jaime Lannister – 72.91%
  • Tyrion Lannister – 70.76%
  • Bran Stark – 66.02%
  • Cersei Lannister – 60.39%
  • Jon Snow – 58.99%
  • Euron Greyjoy – 54.95%
  • Sansa Stark – 50.28%
  • Arya Stark – 49.04%
  • Gendry – 39.87%

What have HBO said about season 8?

The full statement reads:

“The epic fantasy series Game of Thrones will return for its six-episode, eighth and final season in 2019.

David Benioff & D.B. Weiss, David Nutter and Miguel Sapochnik will be the directors for the new season. Writers for the new season are David Benioff & D.B. Weiss, Bryan Cogman and Dave Hill.

The executive producers of the series are David Benioff, D.B. Weiss, Carolyn Strauss, Frank Doelger and Bernadette Caulfield. Co-executive producers are Bryan Cogman, Guymon Casady, Vince Gerardis and George R.R. Martin.”

Why will season 8 take so long?

In January 2018, HBO boss Casey Bloys spoke to Entertainment Weekly to explain the long wait.

“Here’s what I’ll tell you,” he said. “They take the time they need to do the show at its highest level of quality. As the show has gone on, it’s gotten bigger — big battle scenes, big special effects.”

He continued: “These things take time. Here’s the one thing I can assure you: Dan and Dave were not sitting around on a beach waiting to go back to work. They’re perfectionists and this is the soonest it can come back at a level of quality that they are comfortable with.”

How many episodes will there be in Game of Thrones Season 8?

As confirmed by show runners David Benioff and D. B. Weiss, Game of Thrones Season 8 will feature just six episodes. Though it is likely that each episode will be a feature-length, so anything from 60 mins to 120 minutes.

Speaking about the end of the show, Isaac Hempstead-Wright (Bran Stark) has said: “It won’t go the way some people want. It will be too happy for some people, or too sad, or too whatever. That’s the nature of an ending… Nothing more is coming, and the certainty of it being over will definitely bother people.”

Talking about shooting the final season, Maisie Williams told NME: “It’s the end of an era. Everyone’s playing it cool, at the moment I’m focused on absolutely nailing it – I have an expectation in my head of how I want it to be, how I want this to go. I just really hope I achieve that. Because sometimes, looking back you can tell ‘yeah, I wasn’t concentrating enough’. I just want to live and breathe every minute of this season because once it’s gone, it’s gone.”

Addressing concerns that six episodes were not enough to complete the show’s storyline, Nathalie Emmanuel (Missandei) told Metro: “It definitely will not be a rushed conclusion. They’ve taken the exact number of hours to tell the story they want to tell and it will be brilliant. [Show bosses] will never leave the fans unsatisfied, they won’t leave the fans left short, it will go over and above the fans expectations as they do every season.”

Will there be any new characters in Game of Thrones Season 8?

The gigantic cast list for the show has been expanding season-on-season since its inception – and yet more are being added for season 8. According to fansite Watchers on the Wall, the first major casting for season 8 has been made for a character called Harry Strickland – who, in the books, is the leader of a mercenary group called The Golden Company.

You may remember in season 7 we learned that Cersei had sent Euron to fetch the Golden Company from over the sea in the eastern land of Essos, to help her conquer Westeros. Fans initially theorised that Daenerys’ old friend Daario Naharis might be leading this group, which might have challenged his allegiances to Cersei – but it looks as though this theory has been scuppered, and Strickland will be a brand-new villain. Strickland is reported to be played by Marc Rissmann (The Last KingdomInto The Badlands) after his Thrones character’s name was added to (then deleted from) his CV and his agent’s website. He is expected to appear in two episodes.

Another actor has also been cast, according to Lisa Richards Agency. Seamus O’Hara will play Fergus, according to his Spotlight page. Fergus is not a name from the books, so there’s no knowing what his character will do yet. See a picture of him below.

According to Watchers, more castings are due soon: they are for characters currently referred to as ‘Northern farmer, 25-35’, ‘Sassy and attractive girl, 18-25’, ‘Northern sentry, 18-25’, ‘Sailor, 35-50’ and a couple of guards, in their 20s and 30s. See the full descriptions here.

Watchers has also reported that a new character from the Frey clan may appear. Danielle Galligan has been cast as character named Sarra, and Watchers have noted that the only Sarra to appear in the A Song Of Ice and Fire book series is Sarra Frey – one of Walder Frey’s granddaughters. Game of Thrones has been known to recycle common names for small characters – but this one seems to close to just be a coincidence.

Also joining the cast is EastEnders star Alice Nokes, who Watchers report will be playing a non-book character called Willa. Though the credit now appears to be deleted from her agency CV, ‘Willa’ is thought to be appearing in episode one, two or four of Game of Thrones season 8.

Is Game of Thrones Season 8 the last series?

Alas, yes. The showrunners have opted to split the final seasons into a smaller runs, but will make lengthier episodes. But basically, it’s endgame for these characters and maybe Westeros.

In an interview with Metro Williams has explained the difficulties of shooting the final season. On seeing the script she said she thought it would be “an impossible challenge” to shoot. “For the final season as a whole it was just so impressive,” she said. “My first real thought was, ‘Oh god, we have to shoot this now. And it is kind of an impossible challenge. It will be really difficult’. I am currently on my way to a night shoot, which is week four of 12 weeks of night shoots. It’s just huge. The task is huge. But, there’s no better way to leave the show, to be honest.”

Sophie Turner recently revealed what each cast member was presented with once they finished filming. “I wrapped shooting in Spain – like, the whole of Game of Thrones,” Turner told Digital Spy. “But I remember the first time, when I wrapped in Belfast with the crew that we worked with so often, it was in the Winterfell courtyard.)

“I wasn’t even shooting there, but the director, David Nutter, called me into the courtyard, because he knew it was my last day on set. He said to the whole crew, ‘Sansa Stark is leaving Winterfell for the last time.’

“As you can imagine, I bawled my eyes out,” she added. “Then David and Dan presented each actor with their favourite scene of their character in a storyboard, with a little note on the back. That set me off as well. As soon as they brought that out… And the documentary crew saw me. It was just a nightmare, to be honest – I was just bawling.”

Is it going to include plots from the book?

Since its inception, the show and the book series, A Song of Ice and Fire, by George R. R. Martin have existed on an uneven time schedule. This means that parts of the book appear in the show further down the line, and that the show does not incorporate every storyline in the book.

Since the end of Season 6, the show has been running on completely fresh material – as its storylines went beyond that of A Dance With Dragons, Martin’s last finished work.

One specific scene had everybody in tears, says Lena Headey (Cersei Lannister). “We had a giant read-through with all the cast in October,” she told Mashable, “and I think pretty much everybody cried at one point. And it was… pretty surprising.” HBO’s Francesca Orsi has also told the Hollywood Reporter that the read-through of the final script ended with 15 minutes of applause by those in attendance.

Is there a Game of Thrones Season 8 trailer?

Not quite, but HBO have released a few seconds of footage as part of their upcoming new TV preview. The video begins with Daenerys asking, “Shall we begin?” Later, Jon Snow is seen asking her: “So what happens now?” She replies: “Something extraordinary.

Further along in the montage, Snow tells Cersei Lannister: “There’s only one war that matters.” The Queen of the Seven Kingdoms responds: “We’ll face it together.” Then, Daenerys is seen commanding her dragon as he unleashes fire on people below.

So will George R. R. Martin write the ending?

It’s hard to say just how involved he is with the show’s finale. Just weeks ago Martin said that he hadn’t caught up with Season 7 of the show, but in previous series he had several writing credits for episodes.

In 2014, however, Benioff and Weiss said that they had sat down with Martin and learnt how the book’s were going to end. So whether they decide to follow Martin’s blueprint, or continue to take the show in their own direction is up for debate.

But considering that the show has taken a distinctly different path from the books in its later series, and Martin’s currently slow writing pace – Game of Thrones Season 8 could provide the definitive ending for the saga.

According to HBO’s President of Programming Casey Bloys, the show will shoot several different endings in a way to combat hackers and keep the finale secret. “I know in Game of Thrones, the ending, they’re going to shoot multiple versions so that nobody really knows what happens,” he said .

Where can I watch Game of Thrones Season 8?

As per previous seasons, Game of Thrones Season 8 will originally air on HBO, and then on Sky Atlantic the following day in the UK.

Has Game of Thrones Season 8 started filming?

Yes. Filming began in Belfast late last year, and in January it was revealed that the show would be returning to Dubrovnik in Croatia to film part of the King’s Landing scenes for the final season, as reported by The Dubrovnik Times. Cast members including Gwendoline Christie, Emilia Clarke, Kit Harington, Kristofer Hijvu, John Bradley and Iain Glen arrived in Iceland in late January 2018 for filming, and in February it was reported that filming had begun in Dubrovnik, though it’s currently unknown which actors are involved in these scenes. 

In June, a fan posted a video that appeared to suggest filming for the King’s Landing scenes in Belfast is still ongoing – and the new footage hints that much of the city could be destroyed in a fire, with its iconic dome being shown completely ablaze.

At the SAG Awards in January 2018, Peter Dinklage revealed to Variety that the crew were “about halfway” through filming season 8, adding: “It’s the final season, and it’s a long one so we’re taking our time.”

In a post to Instagram last year, cinematographer Fabian Wagner posted a picture of himself alongside some of his colleagues, including director Miguel Sapochnik – with the caption “Back on Game of Thrones for prep of the final season and the team is back together”. The team behind some of the show’s greatest episodes – ‘Hardhome’, ‘Battle of The Bastards’ and ‘The Winds of Winter’ – are back for Season 8.

In September 2017, Variety reported that each episode of the new series is budgeted to cost at least $15 million, far surpassing Netflix’s The Crown as the most expensive TV show ever ($10m per episode).

Speaking to TV Guide, Liam Cunningham (Davos) revealed that the show will be filming until summer 2018. “When you think about it, up until last season we’d have six months to do ten episodes, so we’re [doing] way more than that for six episodes. So that obviously will translate into longer episodes.”

Emilia Clarke has revealed to the Telegraph that her and the cast will be on a social media ban as the show films. ”We have a very strict social media ban this year because people need to stop spoiling it for everyone. It’s really frustrating.”

Earlier in 2017,  HBO president Casey Bloys said, “I know in Game of Thrones, the ending, they’re going to shoot multiple versions so that nobody really know what happens. You have to do that on a long show. Because when you’re shooting something, people know. So they’re going to shoot multiple versions so that there’s no real definitive answer until the end.”

The cast are clearly having a lovely time filming, if this tweet from Belfast pub Kelly’s Cellars – including Grey Worm actor Jacob Anderson – is anything to go by:

On March 9, new photos emerged of a potential filming location in Belfast’s Titanic Quarter. HBO have reportedly spent £1 million on the building of a new makeshift castle in the city, and it is reportedly now nearing completion, with images of the structure being released in March.

Who’s directing?

It’s been revealed in Collider that David Nutter (who directed Red Wedding episode, The Rains of Castamere) will be directing episodes 1, 2 and 4. Miguel Sapochnik, who’s become known for action-heavy episodes like Hardhome and Battle of the Bastards, will be directing episodes 3 and 5. Showrunners D.B. Weiss and David Benioff will be co-directing the sixth and final ever episode of the show.

Who’s going to be in Game of Thrones Season 8?

Unless told otherwise, we can assume that all the main characters will be returning for the show. So Jon Snow (Kit Harrington), Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke), Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey), Arya Stark (Maisie Williams) Sansa Stark (Sophie Turner), Jaime Lannister (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) and Bran Stark (Isaac Hempstead Wright) will all feature in the epic finale. It was also confirmed in March that Headey’s body double Rebecca Van Cleave, who stepped in for Lannister’s walk of shame in the season five finale, will return in season 8. 

Littlefinger (Aidan Gillian) came to grisly end at the end of Season 7 at the hand’s of The Stark sisters – so he’s well and truly out.

The director’s commentary on the season 7 DVD and Blu-ray has confirmed that Benjen Stark – aka Coldhands – died in the final episode of season 7. Describing the scene when Benjen saves Jon from the army of the dead and heads into battle the wights, director Alan Taylor says: “He meets his end here.” However, some are speculating about whether or not Benjen could return as a wight.

There was a big question about the fate of Tormund and Beric Dondarrion – two of the heroes who went beyond The Wall to capture a White Walker. At the end of Season 7 finale, The Dragon and The Wolf, we saw The Night King make his offensive on The Wall – and Eastwatch, where both characters were based. Neither character were killed on screen, leaving fans speculating about whether they survived. 

In a now-deleted post to Instagram, Kristofer Hivju – who plays Tormund – was recently spotted in Belfast, Northern Ireland recently alongside with the cast members we know to be starring. Now, it has been confirmed that they made it through the season finale alive, after the episode’s script was made available online following it being submitted by HBO for consideration for the 2018 Emmy Awards.

“Tormund and Beric lead their wildling comrades to the stairs carved in the ice — Eastwatch has a massive zig-zag stairway, not an elevator like Castle Black,” the script read. “They run for their lives and disappear from view.”

The same mystery hangs over Gendry, who returned midway through Season 7 after a lengthy absence. He too went beyond The Wall, and was last seen making his way back to Eastwatch to have a raven sent to Daenerys for reinforcements. He wasn’t spotted at all in the finale, so his location is also a mystery.

We know that The Night’s Watch will be returning though. Ben Crompton, (Lord Commander Eddison Tollett) confirmed to Chronicle Live that he will return and that he was at the table read for the script with Kit Harrington – aka Jon Snow.

We also know that Alys Karstark – whom Jon asked to swear fealty to him in season 7 – will be back for season 8, thanks to a listing on the website of actor Megan Parkinson’s agent. Next to Alys Karstark in the ‘fealty’ scene was Ned Umber (Harry Grasby), who has been spotted in Belfast, suggesting he will also appear in season 8.

Rumours went into overdrive when court documents appeared to suggest that Jaime Lannister wouldn’t appear in all episodes of the last season. It stemmed from the release of documents following a legal dispute between Jaime Lannister actor Nikolaj Coster-Waldau and his former agent, according to Deadline.

The last two pages of the official documents gave details of Coster-Waldau’s earnings per episode. At first, it only looked like the actor would be appearing in four episodes of the final season, leading fans to speculate that the character may be being killed off.

However, further details that he would in fact be appearing in all six episodes appeared in the final part of the document, according to Harper’s Bazaar. Could this suggest that Jaime Lannister will survive until the end?

Will we see Ghost again?

Jon’s direwolf, Ghost, has not been seen in the show since season 6 – a fact that’s in part down to the show’s CGI budget. In 2016 director Miguel Sapochnik explained: “It’s an incredibly time consuming and expensive character to bring to life,” adding that in the episode Battle of the Bastards he chose to include scenes with the CGI giant Wun-Wun rather than those with Ghost.

In December 2017 a group of fans started a campaign to raise £500,000 to contribute to the show’s CGI budget and ‘guarantee’ Ghost’s return. HBO have not yet commented on the campaign.

What’s going to happen in Game of Thrones Season 8?

Well, it’s going to be The Great War, isn’t it? The show and book have teased at lengths that the ultimate battle in the show is between the living and the dead – and now that The Night King is through the wall, that showdown is going to come sooner rather than later.

Obviously, there will be other smaller plotlines, but as the show moves towards its conclusion, every storyline sits within the lingering chill of The Night King’s assault on Westeros.

In a recent interview with Time, Kit Harington teased that this season the show is “bigger than it’s ever been”.

Meanwhile, in January 2018 Emilia Clarke told Access that the series is worth the wait. “Oh my god, it’s gonna be worth it,” she said, adding: “I don’t know if anyone’s ready. I don’t know if TVs are ready.” She continued: “I read the scripts this season and I, in some kind of a daze, walked out of my house… and about three hours later I came home and I still hadn’t taken it all in”.

However, speaking to The Times in January 2018 Maisie Williams has said viewers might not be shocked by the show’s denouement. “I don’t know if it’s gonna surprise people,” she said, “but it’s just different to what you think it’s gonna be.”

One person who doesn’t seem to give a damn is Cersei Lannister, who is already manoeuvring to defeat Daenerys and Jon’s armies once the battle is ‘over’. This was despite her promise to pledge her Lannister men to the cause. Basically, she’s going to screw over whoever she can to keep her icy hands on the Iron Throne. Photos taken in Dubrovnik in February suggest a meeting is set to take place between Cersei and Jon Snow in King’s Landing, in a scene believed to be from the fourth episode of the season. It’s not clear whether the former enemies will eventually become part of the same team or whether Cersei is somehow tricking Jon.

Jon and Dany, meanwhile, got it on in the final episode as they started their journey from Dragonstone to Winterfell – with Tyrion lingering outside with a concerned look on his face. His concerns are likely different to ours, as Bran and Sam Tarly exposed Westeros’ best kept secret – that Jon is actually a Targaryen, that his real name is Aegon, and that he’s actually the rightful heir to the throne. Oh, and that means Dany is his Aunt. That will obviously play a big role in what comes next for the happy couple – but let’s quickly go through the big questions that remain.

Judging by a sneaky pic taken at Titanic Studios, Belfast, the Dothraki could play a huge role in the new episodes. The pictured hut was like many we saw in earlier Seasons in Essos – where the Dothraki were based.

The fighters were rarely used in Season 7, but this leaked photo could suggest that the Dothraki’s motives, and maybe even Essos will feature more heavily in Season 8.

Unsurprisingly, the battles are going to get a whole lot bigger too – with one taking a staggering 55 days to film.

According to ever-reliable fan site WatchersOnTheWall, the cast and crew recently wrapped a massive battle which was filmed over 55 consecutive night shoots.

The length of time is more than what it took to film some of the the previous large-scale action scenes.

A since deleted Instagram post features a thank you note from assistant director Jonathan Quinlan, who recognises the hard work of the team.

“”When tens of millions of people around the world watch this episode a year from now, they won’t know how hard you worked,” the letter reads.

“They won’t care how tired you were or how tough it was to do your job in sub-freezing temperatures.”

Unsurprisingly, the battles are going to get even bigger. Peter Dinklage teased the epic showdown as he promoted new movie I Think We’re Alone Now.

When asked if anything can top the Battle of the Bastards, he replied: “Oh my god, and then some. You are in for it. Truly.”

What are the big questions that need to be answered?

What’s going to happen with Jon and Daenerys?

Either way – it can’t end well. Bran Stark is adamant that the pair need to know the truth about their ancestry, and you best believe he’ll find a creepy way of telling them. In the final episode, we also learn that Rhaegar and Lyanna Stark married before giving birth to Jon (Aegon), meaning that due to the line of succession (Rhaegar’s dad, Aerys II was killed by Jamie Lannister), Jon is actually the rightful heir.

That whole scenario begs a lot of questions – some we’ll never know the answer to. Does Jon want the throne? Probably not. Will Daenerys and Jon still feel the same way about each other when they find out? Hopefully not. And will it cause serious friction between the pair as they battle The Night King? Almost certainly.

What was Tyrion doing outside of their room? Will he die?

Perhaps the weirdest part of the whole scenario was Tyrion lurking outside of their room with a pretty confused look on his face. Throughout Season 7, Tyrion was adamant that Daenerys needed to begin thinking about a successor, much to her displeasure. Since her miscarriage early on in the show, Daenerys has repeated the prophecy that she cannot bear any more children. So Daenerys needs to start thinking about who will succeed her, Tyrion says, but Daenerys thinks its all a ploy for Tyrion to be named the successor.

Was Tyrion concerned about that whole situation because he’s worried a Dany child would be as obsessive, and potentially dangerous as she shows signs of being? Or did something happen between Cersei and Tyrion in that meeting room in King’s Landing? Tyrion was pretty shocked at the news at the news of Cersei’s ‘pregnancy’, and sounded distraught at the news of Tommen and Myrcella deaths. Could he be turning back to team Lannister? Surely not…

As for his final fate, it’s looking very foreboding. In a new interview with Vulture, he described his final day on set as “beautifully bittersweet”.

That in itself isn’t too telling – but he proceeded to give what appears to be a rather big hint. Or, perhaps, misdirection.

” “I feel very, very — I’m trying to find the right word,” the actor said of Tyrion’s ending.

“I think he was given a very good conclusion. No matter what that is — death can be a great way out.”

Is Cersei actually pregnant?

Well she says she is. But it’s been pretty conveniently timed. As Jaime’s loyalty appeared to wane, she revealed the news that she’s pregnant with their child. But during the Season 7 finale, Jaime abandoned Cersei and King’s Landing – and told her that “I don’t believe you” before he stormed out the room. This most likely refers to her order for The Mountain to kill him, which he didn’t, but nothing can be ruled out with Cersei.

And, in a recent interview, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau appeared to confirm that this was the case.

He told Vanity Fair: “That’s, of course, said in a moment of passion. Who knows if it’s true? I’ve almost been married 20 years—June 6th will be our 20th anniversary—and I’m very, very lucky. I have a wonderful wife. But over 20 years, there are times where you have fights.

“You can be so angry that for a second in your passion and anger you can go, ‘Oh, fuck this.’ Of course, three seconds later, you go, ‘No, no, no. What am I doing? What am I thinking?’ . . . I think the fundamental emotions are the same in every relationship. As a setup for the season we’re shooting now, it was just amazing.”

Are we finally going to see Clegane Bowl?

The big throwdown we can all get behind. A fight between brothers Sandor Clegane, our beloved antihero The Hound, and his ghastly brother, Gregor Clegane, The Mountain, has been longed for by fans for a while now. In the Season 7 finale, we got a brief glimpse of what that could look like as the pair squared up at the Dragon Pit in King’s Landing.

Will some of the main characters turn into White Walkers?

Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, who plays Jaime, certainly thinks it’ll happen. “You know some of the main characters are going to get turned. There are going to be some blue-eyed main characters running around, ” he told Esquire. “And, god, I hope it’s not me. That’s three hours of make-up in the morning.”

Is Bran Stark actually The Night King?

This popular theory picked up a bit of steam in the last few months, as we learned more about Bran’s powers and saw more of The Night King. The crux of this theory is, basically, that Bran Stark is actually The Night King. The theory suggests that Bran warged into The First Man as he is turned into a White Walker by the Children of the Forest and became trapped in that body. It’s pretty full on, but definitely plausible. Take a look here for the full lowdown.

How will the show end?

Emilia Clarke has teased her final scene, saying of the experience: “It fucked me up. Knowing that is going to be a lasting flavour in someone’s mouth of what Daenerys is…”

Clarke confirmed some widely theorised directions for her character as she spoke of “shooting for the first time with several of the show’s top stars, including Sophie Turner (Sansa Stark) and Maisie Williams (Arya Stark)”, as well as mysteriously teasing Daenerys “doing all this weird shit – you’ll know what I mean when you see it.”

Kit Harington has also hinted at an “emotional” finale. Speaking to BBC Radio 2, he said he was glad that the pressure is now off his shoulders but that he has “always enjoyed” the massive success of the show.

“I’ve actually just wrapped on Thursday last week,” he continued. “And it’s just been this amazing journey. I kinda said to them on my wrap speech that it’s always been more than a job.

“They were a family and it was my life. I’ve loved every minute of it. I’ve been quite emotional all last week thinking about having finished it.”

On July 18, Natalie Dormer revealed that she knows how Game of Thrones will end. Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, Dormer – who played Margaery Tyrell on the show – said: “I’m excited to see the next season. I’m on the edge of my seat like everybody else.

“I know A to B,” she said about her knowledge of how the show will finally end. “I know what B is, but I don’t know how they get B. But I do know B.”

Meanwhile, Sophie Turner’s new tattoo could also hint at what lies in store for her character’s future. Turner recently got a new tattoo of a dire wolf and the words: “The pack survives.” Tattoo artist Lauren Winzer shared an image of her handiwork on the star’s body on Instagram, which you can see below.

NME Festival blog: release date, trailers and everything we know


Spoilers ahead!

Here be spoilers

Cartoon fantasy-comedy Disenchantment is The Simpsons creator Matt Groening’s first production with Netflix. Taking place in the medieval kingdom of Dreamland, it follows Bean (a heavy drinking princess voiced by Abbi Jacobson), as she navigates her life as reluctant royalty alongside her personal demon Luci (voiced by Eric Andre) and elf companion Elfo (Nat Faxon) . All 10 episodes making up Part One of ‘Disenchantment’ were released on August 17th; but Netflix has since confirmed that a further 10 episodes, making up Part Two, are on their way. Here’s what we know so far!

Latest Updates

  • Netflix have confirmed that they’ve ordered another 20 episodes of the hit show suggesting the show will run for a few more years  
  • Matt Groening says he’s “excited” about the purchase and has told fans to expect more suspense, plot twists and “beloved characters getting knocked off”

Will there be a season 2 of Disenchantment?

 Technically, there will be a Part Two – given that Netflix originally commissioned 20 episodes of the series, which has been split into two parts, both with 10 episodes a piece.

Series creator Matt Groening confirmed to Collider that the Disenchantment team were actively working on the next 10 episodes of the series that will make up Part Two.

When will season 2 of Disenchantment be released?

There’s beeen no confirmation from Netflix when Part Two is expected, with no telling if the next 10 episodes – having already been commissioned by Netflix – will be released onto the streaming platform this time next year, or perhaps even earlier.

The news of more episodes will be welcome for viewers who watched Disenchantment’s finale, which ended on a massive cliffhanger; with the question of hard-drinking Princess Bean’s ultimate destiny, Elfo seemingly dead and personal demon Luci attacked by an un-seen assailant.

Netflix have confirmed that they have ordered an additional 20 episodes. The second part of Season 1 will air in 2019 and this latest purchase suggests a further two seasons could now air in 2020 and 2021.

Who’s in the cast for Disenchantment season 2?

All of the main cast of Disenchantment will probably return for the second part of the series – from Broad City’s Abbi Jacobson as Bean, Eric Andre as Luci, John DiMaggio as Luci, Sharon Horgan as Bean’s mother Queen Dagmar and Tess MacNeille as Bean’s fishy step-mother Queen Oona.

 Of course, if you’ve watched the series finale of Part One, you’ll be aware that things aren’t looking good for everyone’s favourite cartoon elf Elfo, so Nat Foxton may not be returning.

Is there a trailer for Disenchantment season 2?

 Nope, not yet. So far no details about Part Two of Disenchantment has been released yet by either Groening or Netflix, but check back here soon.

Seriously, what happened with Elfo?

 Who says Games of Thrones was the only show with shock character exits?

Elfo was killed by an arrow wood in episode 9, but was knocked out of his coffin in the finale episode thanks to the Queen fight. Our last glance of Elfo was his body in the sea, getting dragged away by a mysterious figure in a mid-credits scene.

All signs point to this mysterious figure being a mermaid, so hopefully we’l finally get to visit Mermaid Island in Part Two and see Elfo resurrected.

What’s going to happen in season 2 of Disenchantment?

 A lot happened in the finale of Disenchantment that left several doors very wide open for our return to Dreamland. There were hints that Princess Bean has a prophetic destiny to fulfil; with Queen Dagmar telling Zog that she’s involved in “a dark battle of a hundred centuries and our daughter’s destiny.”

Ominous, right?

Let’s not forget Elfo’s death, Luci’s attack by an un-seen opponent, Queen Dagmar’s efforts to kill Zog or the series ending with Bean and her mother on a ship with mysterious creatures, setting sail “for the homeland and glorious future.”

Basically, there’s a lot of stuff for Groening and co. to be getting on with, so expect an action packed second instalment of Disenchantment when the next 10 episodes drop.

In a statement released after Netflix confirmed that they were ordering a further 20 episodes, Matt Groening said in a segment: “We’re excited to continue this epic journey with Netflix. Stay tuned for more cranked-up suspense, infuriating plot twists and beloved characters getting knocked off.”

Words: George Griffiths

NME Festival blog: New Kanye West album ‘Yandhi’: release date, guest spots, producers and everything else we know


The ‘Yeezus’ follow-up is incoming

Just in case you hadn’t had quite enough Kanye West for one year, there’s another album incoming. Hold your eye rolls, though, cause this one could be quite exciting. Titled ‘Yandhi’ (stay with us), it’s reportedly a follow-on from for Kanye’s genre-busting, game-changing 2013 record ‘Yeezus’. Which certainly pitches it higher than half the Wyoming records, anyway.

With the album underway – and already delayed once, naturally – we thought best to round up everything we know about Kanye West’s ninth studio album.

When’s ‘Yandhi’ released?

Originally announced back in September and slated for a September 29, 2018 release, Kanye West has since delayed the release of ‘Yandhi’, in order to head to “what is known as Africa” for recording.

“I need to go, I need to find out what it’s really called,” he told TMZ, “Just grab the soil and be and cook food, five meals a day so the metabolism stays up, have my kids in the studio, and have the mic in the open so you can hear nature while we’re recording.”

Following that announcement, Kanye flew to Uganda – presenting the President of Uganda with a pair of Yeezys in the process.

The release date is now November 30 (commonly known as Black Friday) – which at least suggests he’s not rushing it, as he reportedly did with previous albums released this year.

“It is worth the wait,” says Kanye’s wife Kim Kardashian.

What is the artwork for ‘Yandhi’?

The artwork for ‘Yandhi’ features a similar stripped-back, minimalist style to that of ‘Yeezus’, emulating a transparent case for a MiniDisc, a now defunct audio format which was largely available from 1992 to 2013, and carried up to 80 minutes of music.

Check out the ‘Yandhi’ artwork below.

Kanye West’s ‘Yandhi’ artwork

What does ‘Yandhi’ mean?

Much as 2013’s ‘Yeezus’ was a less-than-subtle interpolation of the name ‘Jesus’, ‘Yandhi’ sees West comparing himself to Mahatma Gandhi – the Indian activist who led the Indian independence movement against British rule.

What is the tracklisting for ‘Yandhi’?

The tracklisting for ‘Yandhi’ has not yet been revealed.

Who features on ‘Yandhi’?

In a September visit to The Fader’s office, West reportedly confirmed the inclusion of 6ix9ine and XXXTentacion on ‘Yandhi’. The move has attracted widespread criticism, due to 6ix9ine’s previous guilty pleas to sexual abuse of an underage woman, and XXXTentacion’s widely-reported domestic battery allegations.

He also said Ty Dolla $ign would appear on multiple tracks, and that he was sending a hook to Rihanna for her to sing. It’s not yet known who has co-produced the tracks on ‘Yandhi’ alongside Ye – ‘Yeezus’ was, famously, co-produced by Rick Rubin. 

What will ‘Yandhi’ sound like?

Due to the similarities in name, many have speculated that ‘Yandhi’ will follow a similar sonic thread to ‘Yeezus’, Kanye’s 2013 noise-indebted, industrial hip-hop album. Upon its announcement, Def Jam Records (the parent company of Kanye’s GOOD Music) delivered a coy response to speculation that the album will indeed be ‘Yeezus’ follow-up.

A previously-released teaser clip for ‘Yandhi’ finds Kanye singing in falsetto and layering his vocal with countless vocal effects. Listen to that below.

In addition, during his visit to The Fader’s office, one fan captured 15 seconds of new music. In one track, he raps about “giving up my slave name”. He also addresses his children, saying: “Saint, you don’t really need a last name/North, you don’t really need a last name.“ Listen to that clip below.

“I started incorporating sounds that you’ve never heard before, pushing, and having concepts that people don’t talk about,” Kanye also told TMZ. “We have concepts talkin’ about body shaming and women being looked down upon for how many people that they’ve slept with. It’s just a full Ye album. Those five albums that I dropped earlier were like superhero rehabilitation. Now the alien Ye is fully back in mode, off of medication, working out, breathing as much fresh air as possible, thinking, doing, being himself.”

On October 14, Kanye live-streamed an 11-minute video titled ‘Spaceship calling earth| 3 Domes Uganda.’ In the clip, he rapped: “Relax your mind / Let your conscious be free / No matter what they say / I’m gonna still be free,” and also shouted out his “brother A$AP Ferg,” and mentioned a “2019 prophecy.” Check that out above.

NME Festival blog: Bring Me The Horizon’s new album – release date, tour dates and everything we know so far


The band’s sixth LP arrives on January 25

Kingpins of modern British rock, Bring Me The Horizon‘s success is a tale of perseverance and redemption, while their evolution from scrappy, deathcore-peddling teens to the boundary-smashing behemoths they are today is integral to the wider success of modern British metal.

With the follow-up to mainstream breakthrough LP ‘That’s The Spirit’ fast-approaching, all eyes are on their next moves – below, we unpick everything we know about the record that’s sure to cement BMTH’s position as arena-fillers.

Latest news:

  • ‘Amo’ is now set for release on January 25, 2019
  • Tracklist unveiled 
  • The new album will feature a collaboration with Grimes
  • New track ‘wonderful life’ released

When will the new Bring Me The Horizon album be released?

Despite an original release date set for January 11, Bring Me The Horizon have now said that ‘Amo’ will drop on January 25, 2019. You can pre-order it here.

The update also included the album’s tracklist – check it out below.

What does ‘Amo’ mean?

As well as being the Portuguese word for love, frontman Oli Sykes revealed the deeper levels of meaning behind the name choice in an NME interview.

“Obviously ‘Amo’ is Portuguese for ‘I love’,” he explained, “[but] obviously there’s the ‘ammunition’ part and then in European Portuguese it means ‘master’. It sounds happy, but there are all these hidden meanings that make it more complex.”

When can we hear new music?

BMTH released the second single from ‘Amo’ on October 21. It’s called ‘wonderful life’ and features Cradle of Filth’s Dani Filth. Check out the official lyric video below.

Lead single ‘Mantra’ was premiered on Annie Mac’s BBC Radio show on August 21. The track features the lyrics “Do you wanna start a cult with me?”, which previously appeared on the billboard used to tease the band’s return.

Read the full NME verdict on ‘Mantra’ here.

MANTRA, a song by Bring Me The Horizon on Spotify

What’s all this about  ‘Mantra’?

A billboard featuring iconography previously used by the band appeared in Central London recently appeared in London. Thought to be the start of a teaser campaign for new BMTH material, it features a website which promises “Salvation will return” on August 21 – the date that new single ‘Mantra’ was released.

“Do you wanna start a cult with me?” it also reads – a lyric that later popped up on ‘Mantra’. It appeared alongside a phone number that connects callers to a woman called Samantha, who hurriedly tells you: “They’re making me do this. I didn’t know what I was getting myself into.”

After a distorted clip of music plays, the line goes dead. Fans slowed down the clip, which you can hear below – it later proved to be the opening verse to ‘Mantra’.

NME Festival blog: Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross’ ‘Halloween’ theme set for vinyl release


The pair’s reimagining of John Carpenter’s music from the original horror movie is set for a physical release next week

Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross’ 2017 take on the Halloween theme is set for a special vinyl release next week.

The news arrives ahead of the imminent release of David Gordon Green’s new remake of the original Halloween movie, which John Carpenter both directed and scored back in 1978. The new film and Carpenter’s accompanying score, which has been freshly updated by the musician and filmmaker for the remake, are both out tomorrow (October 19).

Next week, the Halloween celebrations will continue with the physical release of Reznor and Ross’ version of Carpenter’s Halloween theme, which was first released digitally just over a year ago.

A 12-inch vinyl of the track will go on sale on October 26, via Sacred Bones. The label are also behind the release of Carpenter’s freshly-created score for the new Halloween movie, which he made with his regular collaborators Cody Carpenter and Daniel Davies.

Listen to Reznor and Ross’ version of the Halloween theme below.

Speaking last year about the lasting impact of the movie and Carpenter’s original theme, Reznor said: “I clearly remember my friends and I at 13 years old conning our parents into letting us see Halloween when it came out in 1978. We left the theatre forever changed.

“We were damaged and scarred, with the shit genuinely scared out of us and that theme stuck firmly in our heads. John Carpenter, it’s your fault that I turned out the way I did.”

Carpenter will continue his UK tour tomorrow night (October 19) in Glasgow – any remaining tickets for the tour can be found over on NME Tickets.
