Arcane Roots Melancholia Hymns The long awaited second studio album from Arcane Roots, taking on a slight departure from their previous technical and intricate guitar led tunes, the band has incorporated more big choruses and hooks... there is still massive Arcane Roots riffs though. Although he claims that making the record “totally changed the way I played guitar”, Andrew put down his primary instrument on some tracks and learnt both piano and violin, as well as playing around with synths and drum machines.

Waterparks Entertainment The highly anticipated and swift follow up to their 2016 debut Double Dare, Waterparks are back with another dose of super-hook filled pop-punk. If you're into the likes of All Time Low, Forever The Sickest Kids, Five Seconds Of Summer or Sleeping With Sirens then get amongst this. "I never, ever, wanted to make the same thing twice," Knight shares. "I’ve showed friends demos and everyone’s like, 'This is such a next step.' There’s a very clear growth."

Fatherson Sum Of All Your Parts Exclusive indies only LP is on yellow coloured vinyl. The highly anticipated third full length album from Scottish alt-rockers Fatherson, following on from their stunning 2016 album Open Book. This is earnest and heartfelt alt-rock at its finest, with huge vocals, poetic lyrics and crashing instrumentation. If you're into the likes of Deaf Havana, Twin Atlantic, Mallory Knox or Frightened Rabbit, then this is a band you should be eager to get in your collection. Single Making Waves is indicative of what to expect from the next Fatherson LP. According to Ross Leighton (guitar/vocals), the song “defined how the album would sound” as well as being a “heart on your sleeve slacker tune with a tonne of groove.” The single does mark a change of direction for the band – the rousing and anthemic choruses remain but there is a newfound edge best summed up in the stunning video for Making Waves.

Arcane Roots Landslide We always recommend keeping hold of your order numbers... Following on from their exciting and acclaimed 2017 album Melancholia Hymns, Arcane Roots are back with a new EP, consisting of 1 new and 3 reworked and re imagined songs taken from the album, now stripped back and pulled apart, in a similar style to if you saw them play at ours last year. From ARCANE ROOTS front man, Andrew Groves - "It's rare for us to be able to show another side of a story, to re-tell it in a new light or illuminate layers or facets that were previously just nuances. Records can take a great deal of time and require many moving parts to align before release, so when the opportunity arose to record an addendum to Melancholia Hymns, we leapt at the chance. When we finished writing Melancholia Hymns it felt as though we had only just become fluent in a new language, one that had both expanded our vocabulary and our appetite for it's application. During it's creation, Melancholia Hymns became so burdened with ideas and desires that we had to exercise a great deal of restraint as to which components we felt should rise to the surface. Understandably, it was then with great satisfaction that we re-opened the doors to those buried elements to reveal a little more of the hard work within the record." Easy Life Records 12"
