Ashestoangels – The Wake

It’s been a long road for Bristol goth punks Ashestoangels, but they seem to be finally getting the recognition their hard works deserves, with solid features in Kerrang! and countless shows with the daddy of all things dark and screamy, William Control.

The band’s new single for ‘The Wake‘ showcases their impressive live shows, using solely fan created footage for the video and is taken from their new record ‘Horror Cult‘. Watch it below:

Fearless Vampire Killers – Neon In The Dance Halls

Seems like steam-punk aficionados Fearless Vampire Killers have taken a step back from the growling and turned to old-school pop-punk, the likes of early My Chemical Romance for their new single, ‘Neon In The Dance Halls‘. With a video featuring cameos from fellow eyeliner lovers Ashestoangels and daddy of the new goth-punk movement, William Control, this is definitely the sound of a young band taking their first steps towards stadium level. Good luck to them!

Friday Classic – Alkaline Trio ‘Private Eye’

This song takes me back a few years. Aside from a brief, ill-advised performance on Reading’s main stage at an unsuitably early time, Chicago’s Alkaline Trio have never disappointed me.

Known for catchy snippets of punk rock with their trademark dark lyrics, (this one starts with ‘I dragged this lake, looking for corpses’), ‘Private Eye’ is from the trio’s third album, ‘From Here To Infirmary’, released in 2001.

 What are they up to now?

The band recorded their ninth album in October last year, due later this year. Frontman Matt Skiba has released two solo albums, ‘Demos’ and ‘Babylon’, recorded with The Sekrets, featuring My Chemical Romance drummer Jarrod Alexander and AFI bassiest Hunter Burgan.
