Like Pacific will release new album Control My Sanity on December 3 through Pure Noise Records.

“Going into this record we knew we wanted to play with our sound a bit and continue to have fun playing music.” says Jordan Black (singer).

“This record was stressful. Covid happened at the beginning of recording/pre-production. Not everyone could be in the same room so, collaboratively we wrote songs over video chat and iPhone demos. Which knowing me, I have terrible ADHD so it was very hard for me.
“In the last two years I’ve been going through the worst depression I’ve ever experienced. This was very helpful for me and the band as a whole. Looking forward to people emotionally connecting to this record. Our best yet.”

Kevin said: “This EP is a more honest representation of how I’m feeling at the time I’m actually releasing and recording it.

“The first time around was songs from a bunch of years ago so, and more of a break-up album. Now, I’m with someone I love, and I’m a lot happier. It feels like a fresh start.”

Helen Love – This is My World

Helen Love will release new album This Is My World on January 28 through Alcopop! Records.

Helen said: “The album that I started recording on a misty wet February day earlier this year is not the record I was expecting to make when I finished it on a cherry blossom weekend in early April. The songs seemed to just fall out of the sky. The fuzz pedal stayed in its box, the amps were turned down, the synths made way for trumpets and a string section came out of the cupboard…whatever this record is, it’s honest.” 

Like Moths To Flames – Pure Like Porcelain

Like Moths To Flames will release new EP Pure Like Porcelain on November 5.

Speaking of the full EP, Chris Roetter explains that Pure Like Porcelain’s title is an ironic take on the impurity and imperfection of humans. The vocalist admits this was his first time writing more descriptive and detailed lyrics rather than clinging to generalised threads.

On ‘Gnashing Teeth’ he describes a dysfunctional relationship with religion, and on ‘Views From Halfway Down’ he writes of struggling with a mindset he knows is bad for him – and broadly, how humans often live in cycles of pain, addicted to behaviours we know are bad for us.

“I think the EP is just a small taste of where we could possibly go next as a band,” guitarist Zach Pishney said. “If No Eternity is considered a return to form album, then the EP is expanding those boundaries again. The coolest thing to me about the outcome of the EP is how extreme the shift in dynamic can be from song to song while still feeling like a cohesive listening experience as a whole.”


1. Ameliorate
2. Views From Halfway Down
3. The Preservation Of Hate
4. Gnashing Teeth
5. Do Not Resuscitate

Schemata Theory – Unity in Time

Schemata Theory will release new album Unity in Time on February 25.

The band said: “We wanted to explore the concept of connection in this new album and its importance in every aspect of life. Technological advancements in the 21st century have drowned us in the mass-exposure of information, revealing uncomfortable truths – and untruths – about the world and its inhabitants. As a result, it has exposed the disconnects that permeate through modern life.”

“It is an immense privilege to write music that resonates with its listeners whether online or at live shows – it’s the ultimate buzz! And so with ‘Unity in Time’ being our most passionate creation to date, we can’t wait for you all to hear it, and then for us to see your reactions.”
