Rounding up the latest release news…

Black Sabbath are to release a new live DVD titled ‘Gathered In Their Masses’. Capturing two Australian dates on the band’s reunion tour, it includes choice cuts of their new LP, ’13’, and select ‘greatest hits’. The DVD, Blu-Ray and an audio-only copy of the performances will be out for purchase on 25 Nov.

As previously reported, Hill was sentenced earlier this year to serve three-months in jail for unpaid taxes, a score that she since settled by signing a $1 record deal with Sony Music. Whilst she wrote ‘Consumerism’, a protest against “corporate greed”, before she ‘did time’, it is, says its SoundCloud blurb, “a product of the space she was in while she was going through some of the challenges she has been faced with recently”.

In ‘live LP’ goings on, spooky psych-folk kooks Goat have announced one called ‘Live Ballroom Ritual’. Rooted in the band’s 2012 studio album ‘World Music’, it was filmed as the band played at London’s Electric Ballroom earlier this year. Get in on weird mid-set high ‘Let It Bleed’ here:

To finish, why not take the ‘High Road’ with NYC tweeny boppers Cults, who are broadcasting a vid of that name in anticipation of their new LP, ‘Static’, which is released on 14 Oct. And this is it:
