We’re not superstitious, just a little stitious (hence the delay).

Here’s a list of major new releases for the week of April 13, 2018.  Please feel free to request reviews for any of the following albums from staff or contributors.  As our staff post reviews of these albums, links will appear below the art work so that you can read about the release, see how we scored it, and more.


Featured Release

aaa

The Damned – Evil Spirits
Genre: Goth-tinged Punk
Label: Search and Destroy, Spinefarm UK

While this UK outfit might not always be mentioned in the same breath as The Clash or Sex Pistols, Evil Spirits is The Damned’s 11th LP and first in over a decade. Joining long-time stalwarts Captain Sensible and Dave Vanian is returning bassist Paul Gray, while the band recruited producer Tony Visconti due to their affinity for his work on David Bowie’s Blackstar. Lead single “Standing on the Edge of Tomorrow” and “Procrastination” are two highlights that showcase The Damned in 2018.

Sorry for the gigantic album art - that seems to be my shtick. I couldn't tell if it was a slow release week or if I got crunched for time. I also added in review links where applicable in the exceedingly rare event that anybody reads this before clicking on reviews themselves.

I appreciated seeing a larger pic of that 'Our Place of Worship is Silence' artwork so you're good.

I liked the labels being shown as well. But anyway. Thanks for this.

Okay, thank you for the feedback. I'll either go back in and edit them in or I'll make sure they show up in the next iteration.

I mean jom is stepping in and doing this in his very precious free time because both willie and I are up to our ears in other stuff; so whatever he has time for - even if it were just a list of titles - is both appreciated and more than you were going to get otherwise!

Thanks for adding the labels :) And sorry, didn't mean to sound like a douche. Any sort of list is definitely appreciated.

@cristane - not at all! just reiterating that jom is indeed the bomb

I didn't interpret it as being a douche, either -- it was completely needed constructive feedback. I'll do whatever helps people more in terms of their preferences.
