Bonfire – Locomotive Breath
With German vocalist Alexx Stahl now fronting the band, Bonfire return with their new album ‘Byte The Bullet’ on 24th March. Here’s a taster of what you can expect.
Blondie – Fun
The first single lifted from Blondie’s 11th album ‘Pollinator’, which is released on 5th May. The album was produced by John Congleton and was the last album to be recorded at New York’s Magic Shop Studios before its closure. The album features guest appearances from Joan Jett and Laurie Anderson and includes Johnny Marr and Charli XCX amongst the songwriters. Here’s hoping their summer US Tour with Garbage reaches these shores too.
Once Human – Dark Matter
Featuring ex Machine Head guitarist Logan Mader in their line up, Once Human released their sophomore album ‘Evolution’ last month. Brutal, visceral and technical.
