Brighton’s Muskets have quickly emerged themselves in the city’s always growing music scene, and connected themselves with like-minded people who hold a shared DIY ethos when it comes to producing grunge, punk, and emo sounds. Following the success of their previous EP, ‘Spin’, Muskets, consisting of Alex Cheung, Dan Smith, Joe Phillips, and Harry Steel are back with their debut album, ‘Chew’. Documenting the highs and lows of the reality of adulthood and pursuing a life in the music industry, the album doesn’t disappoint.

Orange County hardcore punks Stick To Your Guns bring all the heaviness and excitement that you’d expect from the genre, but have the star power of band leader and vocalist Jesse Barnett that takes the band to a level above their peers. Their UK presence has even seen Stick To Your Guns take the leap from sweaty club domination to sold out academies during their recent outing with Architects and Parkway Drive.

Rating:

New Jersey based indie duo The Front Bottoms rose to critical acclaim back in 2010 with their self-titled debut album, a release that provided a winning combination of both comical and emotional lyricism. 2017 sees the band entering the tenth year of their career and, along with it, the release of their sixth full-length album, ‘Going Grey’. Since signing to Fueled By Ramen in 2015, electronic elements have become a more significant part of the band’s repertoire, and ‘Going Grey’ certainly extends the band’s experimentation with their sound further than before.

Rating:

Since the release of Knuckle Puck‘s debut full-length, ‘Copacetic’, the band have been on a whirlwind journey that has resulted in them being poster boys for the emo/pop-punk resurgence. With countless US and UK headline tours alongside worldwide tour support slots and festival appearances, it might seem like a huge rise for a band with only one album under their belt.

We haven’t heard much, if anything, from MyChildren MyBride for a good five years now. In that time, the duo has managed to secure a deal with eOne Music and Good Fight Music to bring us their new full-length album, ‘Vicious World’.

ALBUM: World War Me – World War Me

Release Date: October 6th 2017
Label: SharpTone Records

Rating:

Chicago pop-punks World War Me probably won’t be winning any awards for “best band name” any time soon. Oh, and their debut studio album is also self-titled, and there’s a song on there bearing the name too, just for good measure. Talk about the least SEO-friendly release ever, guys.

ALBUM: Marilyn Manson – Heaven Upside Down

Release Date: October 6th 2017
Label: Loma Vista Recordings
Website: www.marilynmanson.com

Rating:

For the past decade of Marilyn Manson‘s career, the venom residing in his fangs has certainly been under a great amount of dispute, putting out work that saw the self-proclaimed Antichrist Superstar being hoisted down from his unholy cross, and seemingly focusing more attention on personal despair as opposed to pushing buttons and provoking the masses.

ALBUM: Canvas – Worry

Rating:

The post-hardcore genre has a new contender in the form of Bedfordshire quintet, Canvas. The band have toured up and down the country countless times and across Europe, booking their own shows in the most DIY way possible. Unfortunately, during this time, there has been a fair few line-up changes that have unsettled the band and their audiences. Inconsistent music releases have been a hindrance also. So, when the band announced their debut full-length, ‘Worry’, it’s no surprise that it was met with both excitement and a tinge of apprehension.

Rating:

As debut albums go, Thousand Below‘s really packs a punch. What is most impressive about this record is that it fits in with the ever-growing, popular genre that is post-hardcore, yet it still feels fresh, enticing, and fun. For a band that only formed a year ago, to create an album like ‘The Love You Let Too Close’ is really quite brilliant.
