CULT OF LUNA announce new album

Rejoice! After releasing one of the best albums of last year, post-metal powerhouses Cult of Luna have announced details of their next record. Entitled ‘The Raging River’, it’s due out February 5th 2021 via Metal Blade and the band’s own record label, Red Creek. However, I wouldn’t be surprised if a new song emerged tomorrow. There’s a bunch of different […]

Listen to CRASH THE CALM

Everything was going right for Crash the Calm. After forming at the end of 2014, the post-hardcore outfit practiced hard, toured often, and eventually landed a record deal. They released an atmospheric full length titled ‘How’ve You Been?’ and a split EP with fellow Long Islanders Staleworth, and they were planning for the future. But then, in 2018, three of […]

Watch an IN PARALLEL video

Kind-of-supergroup In Parallel released their second record, ‘Fashioner’, at the start of September. And now there’s a video to accompany the final track, ‘Threat of Heaven’. It’s not much more than a lyric video with some fiery and timely imagery but I’ve totally fallen for the band’s woozy, slow-burn rock.

Listen to WE CARRIED THE BOAT

We Carried The Boat want your attention. If their unusual name doesn’t catch it, then their clever lyrics might. And if their unique story- an English dude and a Vietnamese dude making music in Japan- doesn’t get it, then their diverse music definitely will.  The Tokyo-based two-piece play livewire post-hardcore, influenced as much by sci-fi movies and Zelda as by […]

Listen to THE NIGHTMARES

I should have written this over a year ago. More even. The Nightmares formed in late 2017, played their first gig six months later, and in April of last year (basically a lifetime ago these days), released their debut EP. Although most of the Newport quartet had been in bands before, the self-titled effort is still outrageously confident and complete-sounding. […]

ENVY announce live album

Envy have shared details of a new live album (maybe the last ever live album!?) titled ‘Last Wish’. The band released their latest studio album, ‘The Fallen Crimson’, back in February. They had touring plans in place, of course, but played only one show before COVID-19 effectively halted all live music worldwide. In their own words, “Envy performed a crazy, sweaty, […]

Listen to TOPIARY CREATURES

Topiary Creatures, or Tope Creach as they are affectionately known, are used to doing things by themselves. The San Francisco-based band have booked their own shows, including (this might be the oldest that anything I’ve written has ever made me feel) a festival inside Minecraft, designed their own (excellent) artwork, and, last month, released their own (fantastic) debut album on […]

Listen to APART

Apart have waited a long time for this. The French outfit have existed in some form for almost five years but are only now releasing their first record, out today. They like to describe its sound as “indie rock in autumn” but for clarity, ‘Septembre’ features four acoustic-led, melancholy rock tracks that should satisfy fans of Modern Baseball, The Hotelier, […]
