Teresa Ryan a/k/a Lorna Doom was always a woman of mystery. So much so, that even in her final days as she fought a tough, year-long battle with cancer, very few people even knew she was ill. She kept a very close knit social circle, and those who knew her and loved her always respected her desire for privacy.

When she finally lost her struggle with cancer at 12:50 pm yesterday, Wednesday January 16th, it came as a shock to many, as she had chosen to not burden others with what she was going through.

Spielbergs share new track “Sleeper”

With just a few weeks remaining until Spielbergs release their debut album This Is Not The End, the band are today sharing a new track, Sleeper. Existing fans have become well-accustomed to hearing whirlwind melodic noise-rock anthems from the Spielbergs but Sleeper takes a different approach, showing the band can be as sure-footed in defence as they are in attack. Lead singer and guitarist Mads Baklien comments; “Sleeper is a lullaby. The voice in the song is attempting to comfort and reassure a loved one, but in reality is trying only to comfort and reassure himself. It’s as close to a ballad as we’ve ever come, and the album itself has a variety that will hopefully surprise people.”
