Another Friday, another round-up. As always this is a look at upcoming releases, relevant music news and upcoming events and gigs worth spending some of your time at. It is by no means an exhaustive list, and I’m always on the lookout for more to include.

Infest completed their line-up today with the announcement of iszoloscope today.
One more announcement from Cold Waves has added the launch nights – which in Chicago has Crash Course in Science and Ruby at the Empty Bottle on the Thursday night.
While back in London, Black Celebration has been resurrected, and the line-up so far announced is a doozy. DAF, The Young Gods, Suicide Commando, Sulpher, Empathy Test, DKAG and Machine Rox (with at least one more band to come), and it’s on 28-October. Which if I’m not mistaken is likely to mean that it is up against Whitby…
In crime news, Cameron Heacock of American Head Charge looks to be in legal hot water, while Rotting Christ got arrested in Georgia (apparently being branded as Satanists means that they were deemed Terrorists).
