Lana Del Rey and The Weeknd have a ‘Lust For Life’: 

You’ll be ‘Hypnotized’ by Set It Off‘s new video:

This week there were also new releases from Lady Gaga, Dreamcar, Rise Against, Bleachers, Racquet Club, Have Mercy, While She Sleeps, Fallen Captive, Vukovi, Patent Pending, Meat Wave, Joyce Manor and Balance and Composure. That should keep you busy!
