There’s a few Fridays every year where it feels like a ton of amazing albums/EPs come out. Earlier this summer, we had an awesome day in June 5th (Currents, END, Emery, etc.) and today we have a wild amount of new releases – almost too many to track. Here’s some of our highlights:
Australian extreme metal giants Aversions Crown have finally broken the ice with fans with their latest tour announcement. Aversions Crown announced they will be hitting the road with Thy Art Is Murder, Fit For An Autopsy, and Enterprise Earth in March of 2020. The band has remained fairly quiet ever since the release of their last single “The Breeding Process” in June of 2018, until the announcement of this tour. Along with a nice juicy tour the band has made it clear there is a new vocalist, and a new album on the way. The band’s last effort “Xenocide” was met with great reception from fans and critics alike. My prediction is we will see a new song before the band rolls out on tour. I could be wrong though, but hopefully not.
When Michigan’s Fireworks announced an “indefinite hiatus” in 2015, it seemed to spell the premature end of one of punk/emo music’s most promising new acts. 2014’s Oh, Common Life saw the band juxtaposing frontman David Mackinder’s emotive tales of heartache and loss with an expanding musical pallet of indie rock influences — and just as they seemed poised for a breakthrough, they were gone.
