Get The Shot Release New Single/Video “Survival Denied”
Quebec City’s hardcore scene trailblazers Get The Shot have shared a brand new single + music video entitled “Survival Denied.” The track and accompanying visual boast a powerful message. It’s an anthemic, fist-in-the-air, and groove-centric metal x hardcore jam. And it has a lot to say.
‘Shout Louder’ is the wavey, 90s-inspired summer track from Tottenahm’s common goldfish [OUT NOW]
Tottenham’s common goldfish recently made his debut with ‘Feel The Fuzz’, the fuzzed-out ode to 90s indie-rock that was supported by Clash Magazine, Joy of Violent Movement, LDN Magazine and more.

The Schoolboys share post-punk offering ‘Girls Grow Up Faster Than Boys’
The Schoolboys is the brainchild of lead singer and multi-instrumentalist Luke, who wanted to capture the zeitgeist of his day and age with music full of character. In his songs, intellectualised emotion and self analysis oppose how modern music overcompensates being void of relatable insight with bland, hedonistic content and recycled, superficial fervour.
GAG SALON release debut EP ‘Get A Load Of This Guy’
Frenetic art-rock quartet Gag Salon release debut EP ‘Get A Load of This Guy’ today via Blitzcat Records.
It’s a 5 track whirlwind, pushing and pulling at the very limits of aural decency. Their trademark Beefheartian wonk and icepick guitar pirouettes call to mind Gang of Four, DEVO or Television. Meanwhile Joseph Mumford’s frenzied vocal ruminations paint grimy, distorted vignettes of everyday drudgery.
Heavy instrumental greats Russian Circles have announced a new LP Gnosis available August 19th via Sargent House. Listen to the relentless first single “Conduit”. Gnosis, their eighth album, eschews the varied terrain of their past works as it razes a path through the most harrowing territory of their sounds by employing a new songwriting technique. Rather than crafting songs out of fragmented ideas in the practice room, full songs were written and recorded independently before being shared with other members, so that their initial vision was retained. While these demos spanned the full breadth of the band’s varied styles, the more cinematic compositions were ultimately excised in favor of the physically cathartic pieces. The album was engineered and mixed by Kurt Ballou at God City with additional tracking done at Chicago’s Electrical Audio.
