After three studio albums and over a decade deep into the music game, THE INTERRUPTERS deliver their new album, In The Wild. This 14-track opus is the real deal; it’s a story of survival, a story of resilience, by a band being bold and rejecting the easy impulses of simply repeating what’s worked before. Together during lockdown, Aimee Interrupter, partner and guitarist Kevin Bivona, and his younger twin brothers, Jesse (drums) and Justin (bass), decided to put idle hands to work. After building a home studio in their garage together, Kevin stepped up and took charge of production duties to become “the accountable one” this time around. The record took shape in an unforced and organic fashion, and the recording process was evidently a fun one, which is reflected in the sound of the album, gliding across a spectrum of breathless punk rock, doo-wop, gospel, dancehall, and the band’s customary nods to the lineage of two-tone. It’s further evidenced in the uplifting spirit and the glittering rollcall of guests (Tim Armstrong, Rhoda Dakar, Hepcat, The Skints) involved too. Thanks to the cocoon of the intimate environment they’d built and relaxed working practices, the results made for the most personal Interrupters album to date, as well as being the one all four feel most connected to.

The follow-up to their 2018 breakthrough album, Fight The Good Fight, which spawned multiple singles including “She’s Kerosene”, with over 50 Million streams to date. This smash-hit sent the band to the top of the radio charts and across the globe, playing live with everyone from Dropkick Murphys to Green Day. It was Spring 2020 as they were headed out on an 8-week Hella Mega stadium tour in support of Green Day, Weezer, and Fall Out Boy, when like the rest of the world, the band’s plans went kaput. The forced time at home gave them a period of much-needed rest, followed by an injection of creative energy that led the band to write over 80 songs, curate a live album and documentary film about their lives and their first trip to Japan. THE INTERRUPTERS will be back on the road starting this Spring, co- heading with Flogging Molly and touring through the remainder of 2022 and beyond.

The first completely original Primus music in over a decade comes in the form of a 3 song 12". It kicks off with 12 minute epic "Conspiranoia" exploring the absurdity and darkness bubbling up in the contemporary world - perpetuated, as frontman Les Claypool says, "by anyone with a slight hint of web design aptitude." Claypool goes on to say: "Because all 3 songs were bred in an odd time of divide, confusion, angst, frustration, and social senility, the title 'Conspiranoid' seemed appropriate."

AMON AMARTH / GREAT HEATHEN ARMY - Amon Amarth Announce New Album "The Great Heathen Army" Out August 2022. One of the best-loved metal bands in the world, AMON AMARTH are firmly dedicated to aiming high when they hit the studio. Recorded with esteemed studio guru Andy Sneap at the controls, 'The Great Heathen Army' represents another bold leap forward for the band, as their trademark sound undergoes yet another skilful, evolutionary overhaul, both lyrically and musically. From the noisily rabble-rousing "Find A Way Or Make One" and the pummelling, pugilistic "Get In The Ring", to the evocative fury of "Saxons & Vikings" and the cinematic squall of the title track, 'The Great Heathen Army' encapsulates the essence of this legendary band, while still allowing acres of space for new ideas.

Will Stewart's new full length 'Slow Life' is a collection of songs that capture his unique blend of varied styles and interpretations. In our current rapid fire consumer culture of "brands" and "influencers," Slow Life invites people to take a seat and relax for a while. While past releases County Seat (2018) and Way Gone (2020) drew from a more internal and reflective mood, Slow Life approaches the music in a more immediate and whimsical spirit.

Vinyl LP pressing. 2022 release California-based trio Heavy Gus release their debut album Notions. Led by singer/songwriter/guitarist Dorota Szuta, the band includes multi-instrumentalist Stelth Ulvang of The Lumineers and percussionist Ryan Dobrowski of Blind Pilot. The band took shape during the pandemic when songwriting couple Uvlang and Szuta (a marine scientist who also has a background in music playing with Laura Gibson and Gill Landry) took a socially distanced road trip to Nashville - picking up Dobrowski in Colorado along the way - to record at The Creative Workshop. The resulting collection of songs blur the lines between grungy garage band fare, hazy desert surf, and dreamy, sun-soaked indie rock. Their debut offering calls to mind everything from Meat Puppets and The Breeders to Yo La Tengo and Acetone in it's artful balance of hope and fatalism, loneliness and desire, strength and vulnerability.

Ural Thomas is universally recognized as one of the most exciting singers remaining from the original soul era, and an active musical institution for over sixty years. His catalog has slotted into countless sweet, seductive mixtapes between James Brown, Otis Redding, and Stevie Wonder (all of whom he has performed with). Leader of the rhythm and blues vocal group The Monterays, his success brought him to Los Angeles where he caught the ear of industry bigwig Jerry Goldstein, best remembered for managing Sly and The Family Stone and producing dozens of iconic records by the likes of War, The McCoys, and The Angels (co-writing "My Boyfriend's Back"). Goldstein brought him into the studio with arranger Gene Page (known for thousands of recordings with everyone from Aretha Franklin to Elton John to a veritable who's who of Motown stars) to record two landmark 1967 singles "Pain Is The Name of Your Game" and "Can You Dig It". Ural Thomas & the Pain have released two full length albums: 2016's self-titled release and 2018's The Right Time. The return with Dancing Dimensions, their third record together.

Harmonizing folk duo The Brother Brothers are used to hearing Everly Brothers comparisons, but even Phil and Don couldn't beat the sound of siblings Adam and David Moss, who share identical DNA. The twins started weaving their voices together before they hit first grade, learning by singing along to the Everlys, the Beatles and other artists they found in their dad's record collection. On their new album, Cover to Cover, The Brother Brothers pay homage to those early influences and other favorite songwriters with unique arrangements of both beloved classics and songs they want more people to hear. Among their eclectic picks: Tom T. Hall's "That's How I Got to Memphis," Jackson Browne's "These Days," James Taylor's "You Can Close Your Eyes," Hoagy Carmichael's "I Get Along Without You Very Well (Except Sometimes)," Robert Earl Keen's "Feelin' Good Again," Richard Thompson's "Waltzing's for Dreamers," Judee Sill's "Rugged Road" and Tom Waits' "Flowers Grave." Their exquisite version of Lennon and McCartney's "I Will" holds special significance, because they created their own harmonies over the solo-vocal original when they were 6. Fiddler/violinist Adam and cello player/guitarist David also called on special friends, from singer/mandolinist Sarah Jarosz to Lake Street Dive vocalist Rachael Price - who sings with her sister, Emily, making this effort even more of a family affair.

Limited vinyl LP pressing includes bonus CD edtion. 2022 release. Coming 40 years after he first started performing in bands in his native North West of England, Butterfly Mind is the most surprising release yet from Tim Bowness. From the short, sharp shocks of Always The Stranger and Only A Fool to the long-form ambition of the sensuous Dark Nevada Dream, the cinematic Electro-Ballroom of Glitter Fades and the dystopian paranoia of Say Your Goodbyes Parts 1 and 2, Butterfly Mind delivers a thrilling fusion of Art Rock invention, Post-Punk energy and epic soulful ballads. Tim's seventh solo album features the stellar rhythm section of Richard Jupp (in his first major session since leaving Elbow) and Nick Beggs alongside a spectacular guest list including Ian Anderson (Jethro Tull), Dave Formula (Magazine), Peter Hammill (Van Der Graaf Generator), Martha Goddard (The Hushtones), Gregory Spawton (Big Big Train), Mark Tranmer (The Montgolfier Brothers / GNAC), Saro Cosentino (Franco Battiato), Italian Jazz musician Nicola Alesini, US singer Devon Dunaway (Ganga), Stephen W Tayler (Kate Bush) and, marking his first studio work with Tim for nearly three decades, former No-Man violinist Ben Coleman.

The 2021 CMT Music Award winner co- penned eight of the album’s 17 songs, whose credits boast an all-star lineup of writers like Tyler Hubbard, Brian Kelley, Morgan Wallen and Thomas Rhett, among others. Notable tracks include fiery heartbreak single “New Truck,” unifying anthem “In Our Blood (feat. Jimmie Allen)” and his second career No. 1 “Nobody.”"
