Black Star Rid­ers are to part ways with co-founder gui­tarist Da­mon John­son at the end of this year. His re­place­ment is Chris­tian Mar­tucci from the band Stone Sour. John­son will also sit out BSR’s trip to Brazil next month, on which Thun­der gui­tarist Luke Mor­ley will stand in. BSR are due to be­gin the record­ing of a fourth al­bum in early 2019.

The sixth an­nual Louder Than Words fes­ti­val, an event cel­e­brat­ing mu­sic lit­er­a­ture, takes place at the Prin­ci­pal Ho­tel in Manch­ester over the week­end of Novem­ber 9-11. This year’s guests in­clude Guy Pratt of Pink Floyd fame, Martin

Atkins from PiL and Killing Joke and Squeeze’s Chris Dif­ford. De­tails at loud er than word sf est. com

Although he’s busy tour­ing with the newlook Fleetwood Mac, Mike Camp­bell be­lieves that a re­union of Tom Petty’s group the Hear­break­ers is in­evitable. “We’ll play again some­day,” he tells Rolling Stone. “We love each other too much not to do that.” Camp­bell spec­u­lates that any re­newed ac­tiv­ity would prob­a­bly in­volve

“four or five [guest] singers”, quite pos­si­bly per­form­ing Petty’s 1994 solo al­bum Wild­flow­ers in full. Mark Knopfler re­leases his ninth solo stu­dio al­bum, Down The Road Wher­ever, on Novem­ber 16. Its 14 songs were in­spired by a wide range of sub­jects, in­clud­ing the gui­tarist’s early days in Dept­ford as a mem­ber of Dire Straits.
