Iconic British band Gang of Four have announced the release of their new EP 'Anti Hero'.

Featuring the late guitarist Andy Gill, who died earlier this year, the 4-track EP will be out on will arrive July 17th and feature a portrait of Gill on the cover, designed by Shepard Fairey. 

The band have also shared their new single "Forever Starts Now", co-written by Late Guitarist Andy Gill. Its original working title was “Hero,” a reference, John explains, to the lyrics about “a character who sees himself as the hero of his own life and manipulates his partner into supporting this fantasy. The line, ‘She sings along with his song / she thinks it’s like having the radio on…’ always brings a wry smile.”

The surviving members of Gang of Four, singer John Sterry, bassist Thomas McNeice and drummer Tobias Humble, have joined with Andy Gill’s widow Catherine Mayer to celebrate Andy through music. Proceeds from the EP benefit Guy’s and St Thomas NHS Foundation Trust, the English hospital network that took care of Andy in his final days.

Check out the EP's tracklist and listen to "Forever Starts Now" below.

The song, featuring Kim Weldin of Tape Waves, is out today (May 29) through Spirit Goth’s  label BIRTHDIY. Get it here.

Messore explains: “This track has actually been in the works for a few years. I imagined a riff that would be played on a 12 string acoustic guitar, and I went from there, working and creating what became “Undertow.” I envisioned layered vocals for this song, kind of a high and low melody. It all came together when I asked Kim Weldin of the band tape waves to do guest vocals for the track. The dreamy aspect of her voice added exactly what I wanted in order to finish the song.”

Club Intl, the new project of Public Access TV frontman John Eatherly, has dropped the video for his debut single "Crush".

The song, produced by Chromatics’ Johnny Jewel is out today (May 29) via Italians Do it Better. Grab it here.

Eatherly says of the new single, "A crush hits you like an avalanche. An electric storm throwing you towards a new destiny. The waters are deep and your feet can’t touch the ground. This song encapsulates that excitement of being forced out of your routine. The wind blows sand in your eyes...but you can't look away from the sun. Waiting for a signal from the UV rays, unable to ignore your fate. Embrace the unknown."

Club Intl was born when the East Village basement studio that Eatherly records in had a nightclub built on top of it. He explains, "All of a sudden there was this nightclub above our clubhouse. The energy from upstairs and seeing hundreds of kids just wilding out every night, started seeping into what we were working on downstairs."

The video was directed and edited by Johnny Jewel. Watch it below.

New Entry: The Brave Faces Unveil New Single "Lots of Nights Out"

Brighton, UK indie rock/post punk band The Brave Faces have unveiled their new single "Lots of Nights Out".

The song is out now and was recorded with Dave ‘Izumi’ Lynch (Toploader, Jake Bugg, The Magic Numbers) at Echo Zoo Studios. Grab it here.

Influenced by 80s post-punk, shoegaze and contemporary indie, the band push forward bristling melodies and sweeping soundscapes. Wiry, melodic guitars layer driving industrial drums.

“‘Lots of Nights Out’ is about getting to an age by which you’d always thought you’d have it all figured out, but you still haven't. You're in pain, you’re worried about getting old and you feel directionless.” says the band’s lead vocalist, Darrell. 

 “It explores and critiques the only ‘medication’ I had at my disposal at that time of my life: going out and getting drunk. It’s from the perspective of someone reflecting on their lifestyle, talking about the time they spend trying to escape and impress other people. This track is about taking a step back and seeing this mentality for what it was to me — fun, but ultimately exhausting and damaging. The end of the song tries to encourage anyone in a bad spot that things can and do get better”.

Watch:Local Natives Air "Dark Days" Feat. Sylvan Esso Video

Los Angeles indie rock band Local Natives have aired the video for their revamped version of "Dark Days", feat. Sylvan Esso.

The song was originally released on their 2016 album ‘Sunlit Youth’. Get it here.

Speaking about his version, the band said: "'Dark Days' is a loose homage to growing up in Southern California: first loves, sneaking out, finding your our own way —all while trying to outrun religious guilt. The song has become integral to our band and our live shows. We last played it live on Kimmel a little over 2 months ago, which now feels like a distant memory from a bizarre alternate reality. Despite the looming anxiety of those final pre-quarantine days, that performance felt especially cathartic for us and was made all the more poignant by having Amelia on stage with us. She not only lent us her incredible voice but she wrote a beautiful new verse that taps into the nostalgia and the longing we all feel for a different time."

“It was a joy to dip into summertime with Local Natives- Dark Days is a beautiful illustration of being young, riding bikes, and trying to figure out how to love on and be vulnerable with someone. It was an honor to be asked to write a new verse and lend my voice to the story." - Amelia Meath of Sylvan Esso."

The song ia part of our current playlist and came out last week (May 20). Grab it here

Speaking about the track, frontman Eli Hewson says: “'Falling In' is a song about the battles that we all have with our own ego. I think being a young band on tour, and seeing our music connect with audiences from different parts of the world has opened our eyes to the excitement and exhilaration of life and being up on stage and feeling wanted and loved can be a very powerful drug. We are just beginning to encounter our own egos and becoming aware that allowing it to be in charge of who you are can be your downfall. You can cut yourself on its sharp edges and bleed to death if you’re not careful. We want to meet our egos head on, shake their hands and give them a hug. We are not afraid of them… we know we need each other. Your ego can be your friend, but you need your mates to make sure it doesn’t boss you around.”

The video was directed by Douglas Hart and Antony Genn. Take a look below.

Speaking about it, frontman Rob Ellis, explains: “‘Drifting’ initially was written after I watched the movie Interstellar last summer. We then started working it up together in March whilst we were all locked into our house.The dystopian storyline really grabbed me back then and it so happened that the lyrics suit what everyone is going through right now, which is really freaky. It’s a song about feeling like you’re drifting. Not having control over what’s happening, distance, daydreaming, growing up and learning for the better.”

Glasgow noisy post-punk duo Memes (aka John McLinden and Paul McLinden) have revealed their new single "Cheer Up".

The dynamic Scottish combo who’ve been causing frantic poet-punk ructions with their two man / one laptop sonic assaults and who now have may well written the ultimate alternative Covid-19 anthem in the form of thunderously fine new single ‘Cheer Up’.

“‘Cheer Up’ is about cancelled gigs, environmental catastrophe and the importance of staying in to watch TV. It's about heads of states and states of hands. It's about lifting the gloom in an atmosphere of doom. It's about fast food and slow internet. Streaming MP3s at 2MTRs distance. Stay home. Protect the NHS. Cheer Up.”
