The Mountain Goats have released new single ‘Wage Wars Get Rich Die Handsome’, taken from their upcoming new album ‘Bleed Out’, which is out on 19 Aug. “When I write an album that revolves around a theme, it usually takes two or three songs before I notice what’s going on”, says frontman John Darnielle. “There’s always one song that becomes the ‘might as well dive all the way in’ song, and on ‘Bleed Out’ that song was ‘Wage Wars Get Rich Die Handsome’, written while watching a French action movie way past my normal bedtime”.

The debut mixtape from Pussy Riot, ‘Matriarchy Now’, is set for release on 5 Aug. Accompanying the announcement is new single ‘Plastic’, featuring ILoveMakkonen.



The Snuts have announced UK tour dates in October this year, including a show at Koko in London. The band’s new album, ‘Burn The Empire’, is out on 7 Oct.
