As we kick off a busy month for new releases, September starts as it means to go on with a plethora of fresh music out today.
Leading the charge is influential post-rock group, Mogwai with their ninth studio outing – ‘Every Country’s Sun’. While longstanding British goth metallers Paradise Lost return with ‘Medusa’.
However, it is a wealth of up-and-coming names that dominate this week’s list of releases. Among them is the new EP from hotly tipped Leeds quintet Fizzy Blood. Skies In Motion and Alazka deliver two slabs of promising metalcore. While Across The Atlantic, Skywalker, Figure It Out and High Down are on hand to supply a wealth of punk-infused hooks.
Elsewhere, TesseracT’s Daniel Tompkins flexes his experimental wings with White Moth Black Butterfly, and Lonely The Brave’s Ross Smithwick kick starts his solo project, FutureLives.
