Vice have premiered Cloakroom‘s brutal new single ‘Starchild Skull’ from their forthcoming LP ‘Further Out’ (available January 20 through Run For Cover Records). It follows last month’s 7inch release featuring ‘Lossed Over’ and ‘Dream Warden‘. The 100% analog recording (by Hum’s Matt Talbott) is sounding big, with the guitars up front in the mix with solid vocal melodies to hook you in. Thumbs up!

Spectres – ‘Where Flies Sleep’

spectres-dying-artwork

Spectres know how to create provocative artwork, and noise rock! The kind that makes you think, “what is that exactly!?”. The Bristol four piece are set to overwhelm with their debut album ‘Dying’ (out February 23 via Sonic Cathedral). The buzzwords “white noise” and “visceral” are apt! This is “grab you by the throat” rock n’ roll, a la A Place To Bury Strangers, Odonis Odonis or The KVB.

A Place To Bury Strangers have finally announced that their fourth album ‘Transfixation’ will be out February 17 via Dead Oceans! The New York noise rockers have shared the first song ‘Straight’. It’s tipped to be a more experimental album than 2012′s ‘Worship’ and features their most recent recruit, drummer Robi Gonzalez. APTBS will kick off a North American and European tour in early 2015 (see dates/tickets).

Fresh video from She’s So Rad! Sounds Better has the first look at the ‘Cool It’ clip featuring two lovely models who put their pouting prowess to the test before turning on each other in a deep end brawl! It’s taken from the New Zealand duo’s forthcoming full length ‘Tango’ (out early 2015 through From The Crate Records). Music video director Dylan Pharazyn is also responsible for much of the band’s artwork, the ‘Cool It’ clip hints at the future ‘Tango’ cover art. In the meantime, name your price for the single at Bandcamp!

Cheatahs – ‘Controller’

Fader have revealed more BIG news today, Cheatahs will deliver a new EP called ‘Sunne’ on February 23 via Wichita Recordings. The London rock act are streaming the lead single ‘Controller’, with pre-sales on offer. Vocalist Nathan Hewitt tells Fader, “This song is probably the first time we’ve ever written a song on the spot… We were demoing songs in our studio and this one just came out of nowhere. It was like we were being controlled in a video game or something.” ‘Controller’ is not a dramatic departure from their debut LP (but that’s not a bad thing)!
