CLT DRP will release new album Nothing Clever, Just Feelings on September 8 through Venn Records.

Commenting on the record, vocalist Annie Dorrett says: “Overall, this album embodies our true ethos of self-expression. Equally chaotic and hypnotic, it was meant to be blasted in the car at full volume while you curse your ex, your past ghosts, and you celebrate your cherished independence while you have it.”

3. I See My Body Through You
4. Desire / 1 on 1

Fiddlehead will release new album Death is Nothing to Us on August 28 through Run For Cover Records.

Patrick Flynn said: “I don’t want people to romanticise grief and depression, myself included.
“But I wanted to write about the way loss can perpetuate this feeling of sadness in your life. I didn’t intend to make some kind of thematic trilogy but there is this connection to the first two records, and this album sort of rounds out some of the stages of grief that weren’t addressed previously–especially this feeling of stickiness that a depressive attitude can have.”


1. The Deathlife
2. Sleepyhead
3. Loserman
4. True Hardcore (II)

Grove Street – The Path to Righteousness

Grove Street will release debut album The Path to Righteousness on September 29 through UNFD.

Guitarist Sandy said of the album: “we’ve worked on this record for a long time; it was a labour of love, from its inception to the DIY approach we took with the recording and mixing. This being our debut full length, we knew we wanted to level up on every front, which led us to be meticulous with every detail on every part of every song. We couldn’t justify rushing it for the sake of feeding the machine. We’re extremely proud of it. Every track taps into a different part of what Grove Street is.”

Dream Nails – Doom Loop

Dream Nails will release new album Doom Loop on October 13 through Marshall Records.

“Doom Loop is an exploration of the repeated cycles we find ourselves in,” comments vocalist Ishmael Kirby, “from political injustice and patriarchal systems to the negative spirals of our minds. A doom loop is a crisis that starts to feed on itself. It feels like there is no escape. But there is. This album is a reflection of ourselves, the world we live in, and the one we want to create.”

“Specifically, Doom Loop delves into masculinity in its many forms” expands drummer Lucy Katz. “The good guy, the lads at school, the narcissistic politician, the incel, the sexual predator, the police officer. It looks into gender-based oppression from childhood; how isolation can breed violence against women and the rhetoric that spawns incels.”

Elaborating on the themes, guitarist Anya Pearson adds: “On the album we also celebrate masculinity by telling stories about butch and trans masculine identities. We show the shared responsibility we have in fighting misogyny. Empathy is hard to find in a divided world, but we seek it out, advocate for it, and ask how far it goes.”
