‘Silver Leather’ hits with gut-dredging guitars and an inebriated swagger, it’s the second taste from The Altered Hours debut album ‘In Heat Not Sorry’ (as premiered via Fader). The Irish rock act have announced Spring tour dates ahead of the January 29 album release through Art For Blind / Penske Recordings. Sounding great so far!

Nothing 2016 Album Teaser


Yesterday Nothing posted the news of their forthcoming second studio album ‘Tired Of Tomorrow’ (out Spring 2016 via Relapse Records)! The announcement comes with a short blast of new music, and an epic reveal of the new album title. Nicky tells Noisey, “It took 15 gallons of pink bucket paint, rollers, paint suits, 14 hours of sweaty labor, all of it. Each letter was 24 feet by 20 feet and the building maintenance guy wanted to bash our heads in.” The video doesn’t feature bassist Nick Bassett due to the passing of his mother (as noted in the recent Noisey Interview).

Mayfair – ‘The Ability To Dream’

mayfair-the ability to dream

Mayfair‘s debut album ‘The Ability To Dream‘ was released this week via Ozona Records. The Memphis-based quartet indulge in dark n’ heavy gaze on the eight track collection. It’s very much out of the Nothing / Cloakroom rule book but nevertheless, Mayfair provide some crushing moments.
