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 all episodes here. The latest episode was released recently (transmission: 012), and transmission: 013 will be out soon. I’m currently having some issues with the podcast so please bear with me while I rebuild and get it live again.

New and Upcoming Releases this week
A number of notable releases today.
Icelandic band Kælan Mikla release their third album Nótt eftir nótt (which is excellent, by the way), cEvin Key looks back with Brap and Forth Vol. 8, and Apoptygma Berzerk release a 25th Anniversary edition of their debut Soli Deo Gloria on Sunday (there is hopefully an interview with Stefan Groth coming on this ‘site.). In addition, the intriguing album by Passing is also out today.
In new single releases, Salad release what I think is their first new single since reforming in the shape of The Selfishness of Love (it’s great), while Misery Loves Co. have released their take on an iconic alt-rock song (and it’s really, really good): yes, they’ve covered Only Happy When It Rains.
In upcoming music news, Gesaffelstein has signed to Columbia, which suggests new music may finally be coming soon. Also, the excellent band The Golden Age of Nothing have opened their funder to allow a vinyl version of their upcoming new album, and another funder is open for an interesting industrial political compilation.

The big tour for next summer appears to have been announced – Rammstein’s European Stadium Tour. There is only one UK date, in Milton Keynes, which sold out fast, but there are still tickets available for other European dates.
Remarkable Ministry news is that apparently Jourgensen and Barker have finally buried the hatchet, while an interesting piece in CoS discusses whether some of the Nu-Metal survivors make up the last of the “big” rock bands.
