With many shifting their focus towards next weekend’s Download Festival, June kicks off on a somewhat low note. Nevertheless, Ghost have returned with their much-anticipated fourth album, ‘Prequelle’.
Elsewhere influential Boston hardcore band Slapshot return with ‘Make America Hate Again’. While emerging metalcore band, GroundCulture, show their intent with their debut EP. SoCal trio Modern Maps deliver their Rise Records debut – ‘hope you’re happy.’ Tancred (aka Jess Abbott) provides a journey of personal exploration with ‘Nightstand’, and Chelmsford rockers Tigress ask ‘Who Cares’ with the release of their third EP.
There are also releases from New Jersey rock band Gatherers (‘We Are Alive Beyond Repair’), Odd Place, HighView, Dividium, Tiny Stills and more.
