Game of Thrones final season won't start shooting until October

Game of Thrones‘ final season now has a production start date.
The HBO drama will resume shooting in October. The news was first revealed by GoT star Nikolaj Coster-Waldau in an interview with Collider.
October is a later start date than usual for the series, which typically gets underway in mid-summer and shoots until the end of the year. Season 7 was an exception, filming its seven episodes from September to February and then premiering on HBO this summer instead of in the spring (the first time that’s happened during the show’s run).
Season 8 will consist of six episodes. There have been rumors the episodes could be supersized, but that hasn’t been confirmed by HBO or the show’s producers. But both season 6 and 7 set new “longest episode ever” records (the upcoming season 7 finale is more than 80 minutes), so it’s within reason to expect at least one episode in the final season to do the same.
And while the final stretch will be the show’s shortest in terms of number of episodes, it’s also a pretty safe bet that the production will spend at least as much time filming the final season — if not more — as they have previous editions, given how producers keep trying to raise the bar in terms of the show’s epic spectacle and production quality every year.

Cleveland-based Dead Leaves are releasing their debut album, Vultures, on Friday, Aug. 25 via Take This To Heart Records, and today they’re streaming the album early—and sharing the story about how their powerful, vulnerable debut came to be.

“The entire record is about vulnerability,” vocalist Elliott Blair explains. “Every song on the new record touches on some form of vulnerability. For example, ‘Talk Me Down’ is about building trust back up with someone that you’ve lost trust with. ‘Sunrise’ is about alzheimer's and losing touch with yourself; being vulnerable in the grand sun.”

The vulnerability isn’t anything new to Dead Leaves, who have always been boldly honest in their offerings. For the band, it’s their sonic delivery that has been discovered and solidified on this release.

“It wasn’t intentional at first. We were playing with a couple new songs that we had written and decided after one or two songs that that was the direction we wanted to go,” Blair says.
