Music Notes: Graham Coxon wants to play it all, Creed are back?

- Blur guitarist Graham Coxon has recently been quoted as saying that he'd like the band to play songs from the 2003 album Think Tank during their upcoming UK gigs. Coxon, who left the band while they were recording the album, only played on one Think Tank track ("Battery In Your Leg"). [NME]

- In the meantime, tickets for additional Blur summer dates went on sale last week. Keep your fingers crossed for a US tour! [Q]

- And apparently, Creed have decided to reunite. [PrefixMag]

- A new Depeche Mode documentary, The Dark Progression, will be released on June 16. [Pitchfork]

- The Killers are planning to release a live DVD. There's even a chance of a covers' album coming out as well. [Billboard]

- Vampire Weekend are currently in the process of working on a follow-up to their 2008 debut album. Frontman Ezra Koenig told Entertainment Weekly that, "It's definitely going to be a recognizably Vampire Weekend sound, but there are going to be new sounds. We're trying to challenge ourselves not to use the same bag of tricks that we used on the first album -- different instruments, stuff like that." [Entertainment Weekly]

- And last but not least, it looks like a live Nirvana DVD will be heading our way in November. The DVD titled Live at Reading will feature the band's 1992 set at the UK's Reading Festival. [SPIN]
