NEW MUSIC FRIDAY

Each week, we’re going to bring new music to your ears – all recently released, and all certified bangers. This is your one-stop shop to find out all the latest jubilant, gnarliest and heaviest rock tracks. Listen on, if you dare…

Weezer – ‘Weekend Woman’

The best pop-rock band in the world are back with this new tune – a stripped back doo-wop track perfect for dancing in your bedroom to.

Quicksand – ‘Cosmonauts’

The old school punk-rockers, who include Rival Schools’ singer Walter Schreifels, have brought out the second single from their first album in 22 (!) years – and it’s a dark, grungy track which we love.

The Breeders – ‘Wait In The Car’

One of the biggest inspirations of feminism in punk-rock is Kim Deal of The Breeders – so we’re elated that they’ve released a surprise new single. This garage rock tune is weird and fun, and is perfect for jumping around to.

Propagandhi  – ‘Victory Lap’

The kings of punk-rock shred – seriously, if you want to contest this, you will be wrong – are back with their powerful message of unity, self-empowerment and rejection of a failing democracy.

Enter Shikari – ‘Take My Country Back’

Spreading an important message with the refrain ‘I don’t want to take my country back, I want to take my country forward,’ Enter Shikari have an important place in British rock. Their new album ‘The Spark’ is an absolute banger of rock, metal and electronica – and we LOVE it. This track is a super-stomper, so jam it loud today.
