/Welcome to the Future/088/Events, gigs and new release round-up/21-Jun 2019

It’s Friday, therefore time for the usual amodelofcontrol.com round-up of new music coming your way this week and soon, as well as a look at the events and gigs in the future, and finally nods to any other notable news that affects artists and music that I cover here.

/transmission – the amodelofcontrol.com podcast – returns this week, to continue the run through of the a-z of industrial, with all episodes thus far are here. The next episode will be /transmission/013, finishing off the letter I.

You can also get it via RSS, on iTunes, on Stitcher, and is also now available on the Google Podcasts App (search “amodelofcontrol”) and Spotify too.

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).

/This Week/New Releases

The recent accelerated release schedule from PIG continues this week – Raymond Watts has been very active indeed since the band returned a few years ago – with a covers album in the form of Candy. Also out this week: Cervello Elettronico release TOP DED CTR, the latest EP from Empathy Test, Empty-Handed. Empathy Test are currently on a UK tour with ACTORS and reach London next weekend. Then there are the dual releases Chroma + Chromatic from IIOIOIOII.

The intriguing Dark Nouveau compilation – a collection of current dark and/or gothic artists is also out today, as is a new Psyclon Nine remix album Versions: Icon of the Adversary Remixed.

/This Week/Upcoming Releases

Chelsea Wolfe returns in September with Birth of Violence, that appears to be her second acoustic album – going on the first single, mind, that doesn’t mean it will be any less dark. Talking of darkness, British Black Metal band Necronautical have announced new album Apotheosis, which is out on 30-Aug. Expect the first single to feature on /Tuesday Ten/374 when I wrap up the best music of this month.

Velvet acid Christ release their latest album Ora Oblivionis on 09-August, and The Haxan Cloak is back to soundtrack work at the moment, with the score for new horror film Midsommar coming soon.
