Some exciting new music:

Our Last Night did a ‘Heavy’ cover…:

…which perfectly complemented Linkin Park unveiled the official video for the track:

Gnarwolves showed their ‘Wires’ with the first release from their upcoming album:

You’re going to want to ‘Spin’ this new Eva Plays Dead track on repeat:

Meanwhile, Vicky-T (ex-Cobra Starship) wants you to ‘Turn It Low‘, twenty one pilots released the second of their ‘Sleepers’ series of tour diaries, and Counterfeit released a song called ‘As Yet Untitled’ and blew minds across the world as everyone questioned whether that was the actual title of the song.
There were also new releases from Trophy Eyes, The Word Alive, Hey Violet, Against Me, Lorde, HalfNoise, Beach Slang and New Politics. Phew!

Roll up, roll up, get your tour announcements here!:
  • Car Seat Headrest extended their tour, so they’re now playing across the world from March to September
  • Frank Carter & the Rattlesnakes have announced their first ever North American tour. Playing throughout April and May, they’re taking Royal Republic and Dinosaur Pile-Up along for the ride. 
  • Emarosa have announced a headline tour across America throughout April and May, playing on the off dates of their tour with Sum 41 and Pierce The Veil. Chapel are supporting them, and both bands are going to be EXHAUSTED. 
  • Volumes will be touring America throughout April and May. Support comes from Fire From The Gods. 
  • Sorority Noise are touring America between April and June, with a whole squad of special guests. 
  • I helped to promote Boston Manor‘s Slam Dunk warm-up dates: a five date tour in tiny venues. Support comes from Welsh rockers Casey. 
  • AFI announced the second leg of The Blood Tour, playing a handful of American shows in June. 
  • Korn are touring across North America between June and August, taking a whopping six bands out with them (including Stone Sour, Babymetal and Skillet!). 
  • HIM are calling quits after 26 years as a band. They’ve currently announced farewell dates in June and July and November and December across Europe and the UK, but I think we can expect more shows to be announced over the coming months. 
  • Mayday Parade are bringing their ‘A Lesson In Romantics’ tour to the UK and Europe! Touring throughout September and October, you don’t want to miss these shows: the album is wonderful, and I’m considering going to two dates… 
  • The Devin Townsend Project and Between the Buried and Me are co-headlining a tour in September and October. Support comes from Fallujah, and Between the Buried and Me will be playing ‘Coma Ecliptic’ in its entirety.
