In Friday's Daily Noise, brought to you by Fuse and Billboard.com, Pearl Jam is poised to score their first No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 in 13 years when the charts post next Thursday. "Backspacer," which the band released independently, is on track to sell just under 200,000 copies in its first week.
Meanwhile, UK artists including Blur and Radiohead are pushing for three-strikes laws against illegal downloading, and the Silversun Pickups recently produced a shotgun video on a two-day break for their song "Substitution". The band is currently on tour with Manchester Orchestra and Cage the Elephant.
