Welcome to the Future: 042: Events, gigs and new release round-up 25-May 2018

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.

transmission – the amodelofcontrol.com podcast – has resumed the run through of the a-z of industrial, with transmission: 003, transmission: 004, transmission: 005, transmission: 006, transmission: 007, transmission: 008 and transmission: 009 joining 001 and 002 online recently, and we’ll be continuing with g and h on transmission: 010 very soon. You can also get it via RSS, on iTunes, on Stitcher.

If you want to submit anything to be included here? E-mail me (You know what to do with that to make it work, right?), comment/message on Facebook at the amodelofcontrol.com page, and over on Twitter (@amodelofcontrol).

New and Upcoming Releases this week

A few things of interest this week.

The big release is from CHVRCHES, who release their much-anticipated third album Love Is Dead. Elsewhere, Le Mystère des Voix Bulgares return with their first new album in two decades, and it features none other than Lisa Gerrard. The album is BooCheeMish. Italian post-punk band Ash Code return with Perspektive, too.

While I have to confess I didn’t realise Shriekback were still a thing, but their new album Why Anything? Why This? is out today, and you can hear the whole thing here.

In new, upcoming releases, Nuclear Sun release The Cleansing on 01-July, there is a new Rhys Fulber album and a Clutch album coming, and Phantogram have released a new single for a great cause.
