Valient Thorr - Old Salt

Valient Thorr have been around for a few years now and they only recently came out of a contract with their former company and in a new one with Napalm Records, which seems happy enough to take the scraps of American labels tables too, trying to re-sell them over here.
 
Valient Thorr have beards so they are fashionable as a ticket sale to your average hippy, stoner fan... musically they seem to have scaled down a bit on this album, without exactly changing their style way too much, but going for a more bare and basic version of it… maybe the personnel changes have affected them too, but with all of them sharing Thorr surnames how should I know…

Slow Riot to release “Trophy Wife” single on April 15th 2016

Brooding post-punk trio, Slow Riot, are releasing their new single, “Trophy Wife”, via Straight Lines Are Fine on April 15th, 2016.
 
“Trophy Wife” follows hot on the heels of the impressive critical reaction that accompanied the band’s debut EP, “Cathedral”, a record that took the post-punk influences of Slow Riot - Gang of Four, Television, Wire – and infused them with more contemporary bands such as Girl Band and Future of the Left. The new single builds on Slow Riot's original sound with infectious hooks and a driving rhythm, recalling acts such as Eagulls and Savages in forging new-wave dance beats with dark, soaring undertones.
