With Valentine’s Day been and gone for another year, some of you might have over-indulged in treating your loved ones, while some of you may have, unfortunately, been left empty-handed. Nevertheless, it’s Friday and that means there is a whole heap of new releases to divulge.
Japanese rockers ONE OK ROCK, Californian punks SWMRS and influential skate punks Millencolin all return with new full-lengths. While Enter Shikari follow up their lengthy UK tour with two live “bootleg” releases, and Press To MECO serve up an EP of stripped back, acoustic tracks.
As for debuts, there is new music from promising Aussie outfit Dear Seattle, French “dark-pop” makers The Sunday Sadness, rising London trio Mantra and North-East pop-punk newcomers Northshore.
