A few days of calm, before I’m back on the road this coming Thursday.
By far the biggest news of the day emerged from the Lamb of God camp. First off, their next album, Omens, is set to arrive on October 7th through Epic Records. Keep an eye out for “Nevermore” this coming Friday. And then from there, they also announced a massive headlining tour in September and October with the likes of Killswitch Engage, Baroness, Fit For An Autopsy and more (depending on the date).
Not really sure where to go from there to be honest. Oh, new stuff from Boris! “Question 1” has been unveiled, a track that will appear on Heavy Rocks. That album is set for an August 12th release through Relapse.
After skipping yesterday, I’ll do my best to catch up today. No I won’t.
I should at least include the new Baroness tour announcement, which will be a by-request tour throughout the United States. You can vote for your 10 favorite songs (out of a list of 80) with the purchase of a ticket. They go on sale Friday at this location. Well, not that exact location, but you know what I mean.
And then we’ll wrap up the day (and maybe week) with a couple new videos. First we have Archspire, who shared a new video for “Drone Corpse Aviator”. That, of course, is taken from Bleed the Future, which is out on October 29th through Season of Mist.
We’ll close with Lantlos. The clip below is for “LOWBREATHHIFEELLOWLIFEHIHOPES”, which I definitely just copied and pasted. It’s from the limited edition of Wildhund, which is available through Prophecy Productions.
Good morning and welcome to another exciting Nice Circles mixtape. This week, we bring you new singles from Iron Maiden, King Woman, Four Stroke Baron, and many, many more. Plus, classic Baroness, Bloc Party, and lo-fi sad boy jams to cover all your bases. Check it out at the link below.
We’ll see you in a couple of weeks; the mixtape is taking a short break while our intrepid Editor in Chief takes a much needed vacation.
Most of us are eager to dart into 2020 and leave 2019 in our wakes. While I’m ready for a fresh start and a new year, I want to linger in 2019 a little longer to savor the musical releases. Many wonderful albums were released this year which made narrowing down and ranking my top picks a challenge. The albums that ended up on this list are albums that resonated with me—albums that I kept revisiting, I kept blasting through headphones, and kept giving me goosebumps.
I decided to pick 9 albums in honor of Nine Circles and this wonderful community that welcomed me in this year. Let’s dive in! Continue reading →
