After weeks and months of waiting, the Slam Dunk Festival is finally here! However, that doesn’t start until tomorrow, so you’ve got plenty of time to dig into this week’s new releases.
Considerably, there’s a mixed bag of fresh music out today; the solo debut from KoRn’s Jonathan Davis, Biffy Clyro going Unplugged, and returns from Bleeding Through and Hoobastank.
There is also new releases from straightforward hardcore band Svalbard (‘It’s Hard To Have Hope’), Aussie powerpop trio Columbus (‘A Hot Take On Heartbreak’), Chicago indie/pop-punk up-and-comers Retirement Party (‘Somewhat Literate’) and Ohio emo/indie quartet Curtail (‘All Your Luck.’)
