Grunge rockers Return To Dust will release their self titled album on May 3 through Jim Kaufman Productions.

The band said: “The timeline for our self-titled album goes farther back than people realize. This record is our warmest welcome, because it comes from the most genuine of places, where we didn’t fully understand ourselves, and the world around us was rapidly changing.

“It’s a cataclysmic mess of emotions, growing pains, youth and maturity, and we’re proud to call it our first. Aptly named, this album is Return to Dust.”

Hrtlss – Blood Moon

Hrtlss will release new EP Blood Moon on May 31.

The alt-rocker said: “This body of work is a deep dive into pain, self pity and self destruction, but ultimately, the idea of losing oneself and becoming who they were meant to be. I took inspiration from the dark and grungy aesthetics of vampire movies.

“This project starts at the end of the story and works its way back through the EP, with each song being a different stage in the coming to terms of the state the character finds themselves in.”

Scattered Ashes will release debut EP All that is Solid Melts into the Air on June 14 through Blowtorch Records.

The post-punk band took the name from a Karl Marx quote.

Frontman Rob Dalton said: “Marx was referring to non-economic relationships and aspects of human life in the future, i.e. art, love, food, family, religious conviction or the pursuit of knowledge—in short, everything that gives us true meaning and fulfilment, and how it will be co-opted by endless expansion and exploitation. This is a future the band believes we are living in.

“There was a lot of serendipity on this record and at times it felt like we were expelling a lot of demons.

“This record was special, the words and the music just flew out, it felt different.”

Graphic Nature – Who Are You When No One is Watching?

British metallers Graphic Nature’s latest album Who Are You When No One Is Watching? will be released on July 12 through Rude Records.

“Who Are You When No One Is Watching?” is an album focused solely on the human emotion,” reveals frontman, Harvey Freeman.

“It stems from how one bad day can change everything and how you deal with the outcome in the future, from worsened mental illness to paranoia, selfishness and ptsd. The album aims to start the question everyone truly wants to know.”
