Melbourne, Australia- Rock band Press Club have announced new, self-produced album ‘Endless Motion’ due out 14th October 2022 on Hassle Records.
Alongside the announce, Press Club release single ‘Eugene’, a satisfyingly fuzzy and raucous track, packed with punchy guitars and unfalteringly energetic drums, all held together by lead singer Natalie Foster’s emotionally raw vocals. It’s a track that makes you feel those tense moments of insecurity but also that triumphant feeling of letting go. Foster says ‘Eugene’ is about “being stuck in a cycle of having so many things running through your head/things you need to say but being unable to express them in fear of being taken the wrong way.”
Check out the Cover Art, Tracklisting and Stream the tracks ‘Eugene’ as well as ‘Cancelled’ below.

Speaking about the meaning behind ‘Myself in the Way,’ vocalist Austin Getz says, “Over the last couple of years, I really tried to stop finding reasons why not to do something. This song specifically is about getting engaged despite fears I’ve always had of being able to provide for a family, to give as much as someone you love might need forever. It’s about letting love lead the way despite your fears, about not letting your doubts, your ego, your self get in the way of it.”
‘Myself in the Way’ was born out of Turnover’s desire to continue evolving their sound, making each body of work more exploratory than the last, but it’s also a byproduct of the band’s growth both as individuals and collectively. Armed with a flurry of new ways for the band to express themselves creatively, the band challenged themselves to make their most ambitious body of work to date. Co-produced by frontman Austin Getz alongside frequent collaborator Will Yip, ‘Myself In The Way’ sounds more expansive than anything they’ve done, intently honing in on sound design this time around, and yet it’s wholeheartedly more intimate and self-reliant on their vision and execution. Bassist Danny Dempsey painted the cover artwork himself, and longtime touring guitarist Nick Rayfield contributed songs to the album to lend an additional spark. The album also features guest appearances from peers and friends like Bre Morell of Austin-based band Temple of Angels on the track ‘Ain’t Love Heavy,’ and Turnstile’s Brendan Yates on the title track out today.
In 2019, Turnover released their fourth studio album ‘Altogether’, which The FADER described as “their weirdest and most accessible to date” and features the stand out tracks ‘Plant Sugar’ and ‘Much After Feeling.’ 2017 saw the release of their celebrated album ‘Good Nature’, which features the hit song ‘Super Natural.’

Australian metal juggernauts Parkway Drive are pleased to announce their seventh album Darker Still. The record, which is their first full-length since 2018’s Reverence, arrives on September 9 via Epitaph Records.
Parkway Drive have also shared the masterfully cinematic video for “The Greatest Fear,” which features the band’s galloping guitar work, moshy breakdowns, and guttural vocals amidst a stunning backdrop that will transport you elsewhere.
“The greatest fear, the one we all share; this song is about the unifying force we all must face —death,” says McCall. “The goal was to create a song that saw death not as something that separates, but something that connects us all on our paths. Musically, we wanted to create a song that did this concept justice. It’s heavy, it’s epic and when it stomps it leaves an impact.”
“The Greatest Fear” follows the release of the video for “Glitch,” a frenetic exploration of the things our minds experience when we are not awake — but not yet asleep — such as night terrors and sleep paralysis.

Oxford electronic-pop quartet Low Island announce their sophomore album Life In Miniature for November 4th via their own label Emotional Interference. It’s led by new single ‘Can’t Forget’ today.
Described by the band as a ‘sonic photo album; a journey through three years of accelerated change that felt like a lifetime,’ Life in Miniature promises to be an exploratory exhibition – treading the line between granular, emotional introspection and Big Picture understanding and acceptance.
First single ‘Can’t Forget’ is beholden to a languid groove, blending into a bombastic chorus that takes cues from Tame Impala and Foals. Throughout it is underpinned by the melancholic optimism and idiosyncratic production that has come to define Low Island’s sound, with space for a brash, spiralling guitar solo, rarely unleashed from their arsenal. This clash of old and new techniques echoes the sentimental approach towards recognition of the past whilst gazing forwards.
As singer Carlos Posada elaborates: “it’s a reflection on the headyness of youth and a fear of growing up. Verse 2 is a nod to the day I left home; as I drove down the street, I caught my Dad crying and waving me away in the wing-mirror of my car. It’s one of those memories that gets printed right onto the front of your mind and that you never forget.”
Check out the video for the single, ‘Can’t Forget’ below.
Stringing together the stunning recent singles from Slowly Slowly, the Melbourne indie faves have today announced their brand new album Daisy Chain, due out Friday 4th of Novembervia UNFD. Pre-orders for Daisy Chain are available at 9 am on the 1st of July.
Set to unveil Slowly Slowly‘s most ambitious and uninhibited selves yet to the world this November, Daisy Chain will also come armed with a brand new sonic palette on vivid display; one soaked in oscillating fragility and boisterous delights that pay homage to the quartet’s stylistic past while firmly linking to their very bright future ahead.
In addition to the announcement, the band have dropped a new track, ‘Daisy Chain’.
“Daisy Chain, I feel, is a culmination point,” shares vocalist Ben Stewart. “It’s a story about how the strongest supports in your life can also be the most delicate. It’s about how lucky I am. It’s about growing up, accepting myself. Life is not linear; it seems for me to be this constant circular process. It’s about the ugly nature of fate and and how if we don’t find the beauty in it we’re doomed for failure. It’s about the process of turning a blind eye to the weakest parts of yourself so you never grow. It’s about hating yourself. ‘Daisy chain, stay the same’ is a mantra for me about keeping the things I care about most front of mind at all times – there is freedom in that. It’s about the golden years, being every year, from now on.”
Kicking off Slowly Slowly‘s fourth studio album, the band’s first since 2020’s Race Car Blues and its accompanying follow-up Race Car Blues Chapter 2 in 2021, Daisy Chain is a perfectentréeto raucous party-starters (Blueprint), slick dancefloor vibes (Forget You), poppin’ bops (Achilles’ Heel) and upbeat emo singalong moments (Longshot) throughout the LP’s 12 tracks.

Today, the band has shared the video for “Spilt Salt.” check out the video below.
“Spilt Salt” is a “f**k you” to the vapid social climbers of the world. But the video is a tongue-in-cheek homage to heavy metal imagery that even the staunchest headbanger won’t be able to help but love.
“‘Spilt Salt’ was originally written when I moved from Baltimore, Maryland to Loudoun County, Virginia,” says singer Christian Neonakis. “The song is about my first impressions with the new environment and new people that I met. Unfortunately, many of the first people I met were vapid socialites with rich parents and we had almost nothing in common. I felt bored, isolated, insecure, and hopeless. So I wrote a ‘fuck you’ song to the egotistical social climbers of the world and that’s what ‘Spilt Salt’ is about. Since having been here in Loudoun County for several years now, I have met some of the most wonderful people and made many truly genuine friendships. I just unfortunately met the dickheads first.”
Manchester art-rock quartet Weimar have released their debut album ‘Dancing On a Volcano’ on CD via German Shepherd Records and digitally via Marlene’s Hat Records. These 12 tracks take the listener on an unpredictable excursion through the socio-political and personal challenges of our modern age.
The first taste of the album was‘Soho Rain’ featuring Leeds-based artist Finola, which is dedicated to the old Soho district of London (the city’s seediest square mile), its dying culture and the many artistic and cultural movements that emerged there. Earlier this year, the band also released the 2-track single ‘The Girls of LA’with New Order-esque B-side ‘Transatlantic Confusion’.
Embracing post-punk to no wave, cabaret, psychedelia, alternative folk and gothic rock, all blended in a distinctive fusion, this album was produced by Adam Crossley and Chris Guest of Vibratone Sound Studio. The cover art was created by acclaimed artist and writerBrianGorman.
Since forming in 2016 and hitting the live circuit, Louder Than War named Weimar amongst its 50 Bands To Watch for 2019, the year they debuted the single ‘John Doe / Curse the Songs’, followed by ‘Marvel To The State / Undesirable Master’. Having worked with legendary post-punk producer Simon ‘Ding’ Archer, they’ve also played with Tom Hingley (Inspiral Carpets) and goth legends Skeletal Family. ‘Dancing On A Volcano’ LP is available everywhere, including Spotify, Apple Musicand Bandcamp. It can also be ordered on CD directly from the band.
The Wonder Years have announced their upcoming new record, ‘The Hum Goes On Forever’ set to drop on September 23rd 2022 via Hopeless Records.
In addition tot he announcement, the band have shared: ‘Wyatt’s Song (Your Name)’ and is written for vocalist Dan Campbell’s oldest son. It’s a song that also feels like the foundation for a lot of what the album will be about, and is as beautiful and emotional as you would expect.
Dan had this to say about it:
“It’s about the polarising forces of love and anxiety that come with being a new parent—simultaneously being so overjoyed that they’re here, about the miraculous nature of their existence, but afraid of all the ways you could fail them. It’s about raising children in a world that feels like it’s actively ending and how to make them feel safe and cared for despite that. It tries to breathe in the small, beautiful moments and exhale all of the invasive thoughts of despair.”
