Hear Jim Adkins’s Wet Lab Play “Lords of Hell”

Earlier this year Jim Adkins of Jimmy Eat World took part in the Phoenix Rock Lottery and formed a band called Wet Lab. They performed two originals and a cover at the show. They then released the two originals on a cassette tape for charity. You can stream one of the songs, “Lords of Hell,” below.

Five Arizona musicians were matched together at a Rock Lottery in January 2015 and tasked with writing 3 songs and learning one cover song to perform later that same night. Featuring Jim Adkins of Jimmy Eat World, Chan Schulman of Harper and the Moths, Justin Weir of Celebration Guns, Mitch Wyatt of Pinner and Jason Roedl of Mergence, Wet Lab recorded 2 of these tracks and have now decided to share them on a cassette. That’s right, a cassette. Some would call it a “cassingle”.

Drake Tops This Week’s Charts

Drake, surprising no one, has the number one album in the country this week. Beyoncé moved to number two, Prince was at three.

As expected, Drake’s Views album debuts at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart with an explosive first week. The set earned 1.04 million equivalent album units in the week ending May 5 in the U.S., according to Nielsen Music. Traditional album sales comprised 852,000 copies of that sum (a slight upgrade from the 851,000 that was previously reported).
