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.

New and Upcoming Releases this week
A few notable releases this week.
Dead Can Dance release Dionysus, while Iszoloscope is back with All Is Immensity and Chaos, and The Prodigy have released No Tourists (which so far, from what I’ve heard, is worth it alone for the collaboration with Ho99o9).
Upcoming things: Boy Harsher release their second full-length album Careful in February, and the first single from it – Face the Fire – is outstanding. Excellent Belgian band Balthazar are back with their new album Fever in January, and raucous folk-punks Skinny Lister return with new album The Story Is… on 01-March 2019 – new single 38 Minutes is out now). An intriguing new collaboration is coming in December, too, with Commixture from Leæther Strip + Autoclav1.1.
Finally, with new albums on the horizon, Slipknot dropped a brutal new single this week, and Desperate Journalist also released an impressive new song.

And then there are (comparatively) tiny Underworld shows at the end of the month.
