Holding Absence The Greatest Mistake Of My Life The second full length album from the excellent Kingston visitors Holding Absence. Following on from their acclaimed 2019 self-titled record. Monumental songs that fuse a wave of emotion with melodic post-hardcore instrumentation. If you're into the likes of Casey, Architects, PVRIS or Movements, then you'll definitely find something in Holding Absence. “This album was inspired by a woman singing a song 90 years that I was able to resonate with now. I’m not expecting people to be listening to us in 90 years, but this album was created around this timeless expression of emotion. Ironically, that’s what we try and achieve every time we write a song and that’s very symbolic of what this album has been and what it hopefully can be.” CD | LP Pre-Order
Soul Glo Songs To Yeet At The Sun The new EP from the acclaimed thrash-punkers Soul Glo. All things considered, in a year where it feels as though quite literally anything could happen at any given moment, a record like the one that Soul Glo shorthandledly refers to as Yeet, one that features a violent and compelling sonic fusion that only they are capable of, is deeply necessary to times in which we currently find ourselves. In times where we are simply trying to survive from one minute to the next, one day to the next, it feels good in its own way, less lonely perhaps, to have music that reflects that uncertainty and fear.

Motorhead Ace Of Spades (Original Album) ‘Ace Of Spades’ - the title track of Motörhead's 1980 iconic, game changing album isn’t just one of the greatest hard rock songs ever written - it has truly become a lifestyle anthem for several generations of rockers, metalheads, punks, bikers, athletes, rebels, outcasts, and freethinkers all around the world. Few songs in modern history can instantly ignite the adrenaline of music fans the way the song’s opening dirty bass riff, and drum roll can. From zero to 100 mph in a matter of seconds. That speaker-destroying opening riff is unstoppable. And the song altered the course of hard rock…forever. Upon its release in 1980, the ‘Ace Of Spades’ album was nothing short of a gamechanger for all forms of hard rock. Like lightning in a bottle, it perfectly captured everything great about hard rock, heavy metal, and punk, amped it all up to 11, and came racing out of the gates at what felt like a million miles an hour. Pushing at every musical boundary, nothing was harder, nothing was faster, and certainly nothing was louder. The Ace Of Spades album; brand new half speed master created from the original tapes. Original album pressed on 180g heavyweight vinyl as part of a triple album in a 20 page bookpack and also available as deluxe 2CD mediabook. Includes a live album of a newly unearthed, 17 song, previously unreleased concert from the Ace Up Your Sleeve tour. BMG CD | LP Pre-Order

Gold Key Panic Machine ‘Panic Machine’, the highly anticipated follow up to 2017’s brilliantly ambitious debut album ‘Hello, Phantom’ (Venn Records). Already being hailed as one of 2020’s truly essential listens, with ‘Panic Machine’, the Hertfordshire quartet have returned with music of genuine substance, an emotionally- complex, fearless, questing collection of songs which confront life’s big existential questions, both personal and universal. It’s the work of four musicians bonded by a desire to push their art beyond traditional comfort zones and into unchartered territories. Musically, ‘Panic Machine’ draws upon the quartet’s diverse musical tastes, from progressive rock to blackened hardcore, shoegaze to grunge, discomfiting electronica to abstract classical scores. Those looking for reference points might consider the likes of Baroness, Black Peaks, Mogwai, Radiohead, QOTSA and Pink Floyd as touchstones. Venn Records LP
Baroness Morningstar (picturedisc) Exclusive picture disc 12" only available from indie retailers. Taken from Baroness' 2015 critically acclaimed album Purple. “After releasing a lengthy and investigative record like Yellow & Green we all felt that we needed to make something much more direct and immediate,” explains band founder and singer John Baizley of the approach behind Purple. In late July, Baroness shared news that the release would come via their own label, dubbed Abraxan Hymns. Baizley discusses the band’s move towards independence: “We have been incredibly fortunate to work with a series of amazing labels, producers, management, crew members, etc., all of whom we not only consider a critical part of our development as musicians and performers but also our personal friends. After working for so long as a recording and touring band, it seemed like a no-brainer when the opportunity arose to start our own label.” Abraxan Hymns 12"
