While some will be spending their weekend at the ArcTanGent Festival, or Upsurge or preparing for Reading & Leeds next week, there’s more than the flurry of festival business happening this weekend. For starters, there’s considerably one of the busiest (and most impressive) round of new releases.
Today sees a handful of noteworthy album releases with the returning Killswitch Engage leading the way with ‘Antonement’. There is also a pair of 5 out of 5 rated albums coming from Press Club and ‘Curse These Metal Hands,’ the collaborative debut between Conjurer and Pijn. While Mallory Knox begin a new chapter with a self-titled album and Frank Turner delivers his much talked about ‘No Man’s Land’ record.
Elsewhere, there are recommended new releases from Oso Oso, Cultdreams, and Off With Their Heads.
