Creeper have released new single ‘Annabelle’. “‘Annabelle’ was written in response to our experience with the Westboro Baptist Church whilst we were touring America”, says vocalist Will Gould. “We’ve always proudly represented the so-called sinners, the weirdos, the outsiders and those who don’t feel like they fit in anywhere in this world. For many of our fans, our band is the one space they feel they CAN fit in. So we wrote them a satanic underworld anthem, a song to sing together in defiance”.

Amyl And The Sniffers have released the video for ‘Gacked On Anger’ from their 2019 eponymous album.

Lyam has released the video for new single ‘Origami’, featuring John Glacier and Shygirl.

A Harlana has released new track ‘My Dear, I Will Think Of You’. “The song is about death and fears”, he says. “The thoughts that continue to haunt me”.
