This is 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.

/This Week/New Releases
A note about the releases that I feature here. This has never been intended to cover every single release in that week. It is more about highlighting notable releases, by either bands that I’ve long written about, artists that I’m intrigued by, or simply music that I like – and by extension that my readers may like.
Catching up on last week, too. Last week saw the release of the first new Misery Loves Co. album in nearly twenty years, and the good news is that Zero is excellent – a good balance between the styles that the band have shifted through previously. Other releases last week included Death Atlas from Cattle Decapitation and a new EP from Prong, the Age of Defiance EP. I also missed the excellent new Chrome Corpse album Anything That Moves, which warrants a mention here.
