/Welcome to the Future /234 /Events, Livestreams and New Releases 13-Jan 2023

Christmas suddenly feels some time ago already, and we’re now at full tilt into new music for 2023.

This post is a roundup of (relevant to this site) new and upcoming music, a nod to upcoming events and livestreams both from this website and others, and also a catchup of what I’ve posted recently. Thanks to everyone who sends me new music and events, keeps me up to speed, and indeed simply reads these posts.

/Releases out today or recently

A scorching new EBM release from Texas.

A raging new single from industrial/metal veterans Prong.
13-Jan 2023 / Grave Pleasures / Society of Spectres / Spotify
The exceptional Grave Pleasures return with the first taste of upcoming album Plagueboys, and it continues their streak of dramatic, powerful gothic post-punk.
13-Jan 2023 / VAZUM / Night Shade / Bandcamp
VAZUM call themselves “deathgaze”, and it’s an accurate description (and a great single, too).

/New Compilations, Live Albums, Reissues

06-Jan 2023 / In Strict Confidence / Face The Fear / Bandcamp
The ISC classic gets a brush-up for the 25th Anniversary, along with a ton of additional tracks.

/Upcoming Albums

27-Jan 2023 / Sightless Pit / Lockstep Bloodwar/Bandcamp
No Kristin Hayter this time, so it’s just Lee Buford (The Body) and Dylan Walker (Full of Hell) with a ton of other collaborators. I suspect I may need to reinforce my speakers.

Daniel Myer returns with his first release of 2023
20-Feb 2023 / Death Pill / Death Pill/Bandcamp

/Upcoming EPs/Singles

None this week

/Upcoming Compilations, Live Albums, Reissues

15-Feb 2023 / Various Artists / The Brutality Of Rhythm – Part​.​1/Bandcamp
What looks to be an essential purchase – the first in a series, apparently, resurrecting classic electro-industrial/EBM from the nineties that has fallen from memory somewhat.
31-Mar 2023 / Various Artists / Cherry Stars Collide – Dream Pop, Shoegaze & Ethereal Rock 1986-1995/Cherry Red Store
An exhaustive compilation from Cherry Red that covers vastly more than the obvious Shoegaze.

/Upcoming/Livestreams/Gigs/Club Nights/Events

Obviously, things change at short notice right now, and I’m updating events as they are postponed or cancelled, and also including relevant Livestreams as they are announced.

/amodelofcontrol.com continues to maintain an events calendar, but it has now moved to /amodelofcontrol.com/events – and is now a dynamic, searchable database, and you can add individual events to your own calendars. I’m currently fixing a couple of minor backend issues, so new events may not be added promptly, or be added sporadically.

If you have updates, relevant events for me, or want to tell me about something else, use the contact details above. It goes without saying that any gig or club still in the listing is subject to change at short notice, or may not happen at all.
