/Welcome to the Future/126/Events, gigs and new release round-up/15-May 2020

We keep going within the lockdown. There are new releases, and still, new music is coming through, and buying music right now is the only way we can help. The events listing is still being updated, but obviously, an awful lot is being postponed, cancelled or changed right now.

/transmission – the amodelofcontrol.com podcast – has returned, continuing the run through of the a-z of industrial, with all episodes thus far are here. The latest episode is /transmission/021, which starts on the letter N. /transmission/022 will follow soon.

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

A number of notable releases this week.

Einst├╝rzende Neubauten return with their first studio album in twelve years, Alles Im Allem (the excellent Lament came from a live piece, so apparently doesn’t count), and Paradise Lost return with Obsidian, their best album in years. Also out today are the new album from Sparks, the marvellously arch A Steady Drip, Drip, Drip (and continuing their recent purple patch), and also from Transglobal Underground, Walls Have Ears.

/This Week/Upcoming Releases

Finally! The wait is nearly over for RTJ4 by Run The Jewels, out 05-Jun. I’d rather slept on A.A. Williams, but no longer (the new single is very good indeed), and new album Forever Blue is out 03-Jul.

A new collaboration is Mrs. Piss, between Chelsea Wolfe and Jess Gowrie, and they have their debut album under the name out on 29-May, called Self-Surgery.


/Upcoming/Gigs/Club Nights/Events

Obviously things have rather changed right now, and I’m updating events as they are postponed or cancelled, and also including relevant Livestreams as they are announced.

/amodelofcontrol.com is hosting its own events again for the first time in a while, too. All are streamed on /Twitch.tv/amodelofcontrol. Coming up are /Stormblast/130 on 28-May, and /Rivet/006 on 29-May.

This weekly listing has now seen a significant overhaul and has moved over to a Shareable calendar format that is embedded below. You can add it to your own calendar views if you wish (GCal link, iCal link), and then you will get dynamic updates as I get them. Otherwise, see the embedded calendar below.

If you have updates, or relevant events for me, or want to tell me about something else, use the contact details above.


/amodelofcontrol.com/next week

Look out for /Tuesday Ten/409, and the much delayed /But Listen/163 and /But Listen/164 (these will cover the new albums from Katatonia, Paradise Lost and Empathy Test – all delayed due to a busy week at work).
