Daily Riot Fest RoundupTuesday, July 11th, 2017
We’d like to wish a happy 10th anniversary to Nine Inch Nails‘ “Capital G” single, which was released on July 11th, 2007. Common speculation is that the “G” stands for “George,” as in George W. Bush, who had been President for seven years by that point. Remember when George W. Bush was the President? Those were the days. Anyway, we digress…Trent Reznor says the “G” stands for “Greed,” which doesn’t seem too far off.
Consequence of Sound has a new interview with Eugene Hütz, talking about Gogol Bordello‘s new single “Walking on the Burning Coal” from the band’s new album, Seekers and Finders, due out August 25th. Oh, and not only do they talk about the song, but you can hear this great song about manifesting your destiny as well!
Stereogum just published a Dean Ween-led oral history of Ween‘s The Mollusk album in honor of its 20th anniversary.
Silverstein has revealed another ripping song from its new album, Dead Reflection. Check out “Mirror Box,” OK?

The Hold Steady‘s Craig Finn got a new rescue dog to come sit by his fire! Meet Rosalita:
On Sunday, Angie and I adopted this very sweet dog. I’ve never had a dog before and we are very excited to welcome her into our family. She’d only been at the rescue for about an hour before we got there, so it all seems fated. It’s been a fantastic first 36 hours full of pets, walks and getting to know each other. She’s roughly a 7 year old and female and had come in as a stray. She had another name for the small time she was at the shelter. But since she’s my stone desire and since she doesn’t have to call me lieutenant and since her papa says he knows that I don’t have any money, we decided to name her ROSALITA. Huge thanks to @bfas_ny for being super awesome and also @birdofyouth for a VIP assist. You make dog dreams come true. #staypositive #behonest
