It’s our favourite time of the week – New Music Friday is the new release fix you need to get your weekend started. This week we’ll be listening to You Me At Six, Dropkick Murphys and more.
What’s even better about New Music Friday is that you can also listen to a lot of the new music live. We’ve found the artists who’ve got new records out and are about to take them on tour. Double win!
You Me At Six – Night People
Surrey rockers You Me At Six have released their eagerly awaited fifth studio album Night People. It’s a classic YMAS record with songs about ruined relationships and you can hear all this goodness live when the boys head out on a UK tour in April. Don’t miss out, there’s a few tickets left here.
Dropkick Murphys – 11 Short Stories of Pain & Glory
Boston’s best Celtic punk export Dropkick Murphys have been around for over 20 years now and after four years have released their ninth studio album 11 Short Stories of Pain & Glory. On their new record the band deliver one fist-pumping anthem after another alongside familiar hometown serenades and a heart-breaking Boston-tribute on 04-15-13. Don’t miss the rowdy Irish punks when they play London’s O2 Academy Brixton, with limited tickets left here.
Sundara Karma– Youth Is Only Ever Fun In Retrospect
The time has finally come! Reading indie stars Sundara Karma have shared their debut album Youth Is Only Ever Fun In Retrospect today. After previously releasing three EPs, and seven years after their formation, the band are now treating us to a full album.
