The story of King Tutankhamun’s dagger forged from a meteorite just got a whole lot more interesting

King Tutankhamun, or King Tut for short, became ruler of Ancient Egypt more than 3,300 years ago when he was just nine years old. He died just a decade later, ending a rather unmemorable rule. In fact, the only remarkable thing about the Boy King is his death itself — specifically his burial. After years of excavation, British archaeologists found King Tut’s tomb in 1922, and nothing could have prepared them for the “wonderful things” they found there.

Iggy Pop to narrate documentary on Egyptian king Tutankhamun

Iggy Pop will lend his voice to a documentary focused on the discovery and exhibition of Egyptian pharaoh Tutankhamun. The documentary, Tutankhamun: The Last Exhibition, was produced by Nexo Digital and Italian cultural agency Laboratoriorosso. It follows the tomb’s discovery in 1922 and the subsequent touring exhibition, King Tut: Treasures of the Golden Pharaoh, which launched in Los Angeles in 2019. The film was expected to be released last year, but the pandemic has delayed its arrival to 2022.

Premiere: The Liars Club Debut Live Video For “Tutankhamun”

UK-based punk is having a bit of a moment this year, with a string of high-profile experimental releases from buzz bands like Squid and Black Country New Road. However, The Liars Club instead takes a different approach from their contemporaries, paring their approach back to the essentials and putting their focus on high-octane, mosh pit ready punk. We last heard from the band with their most recent single, “Tutankhamun,” following the announcement of their new EP Of Self. Now the band are back again, this time with a live video for “Tutankhamun,” premiering with Under the Radar.
