Here’s a list of major new releases for the week of May 25th, 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 artwork (if we remember…) so that you can read about the release, see how we scored it, and more.


Featured Release

Love Is Dead

Chvrches: Love Is Dead
Genre: Indie Pop/Electronic
Label: Glassnote

Chvrches return with their third full-length LP after opening their discography with back-to-back well-received electronic/indie-pop albums.  Continuing to push the pop boundaries defined by Every Eye Open, Love Is Dead figures to continue honing the band’s well-established approach.  On the heels of successful singles such as ‘Get Out’ and ‘My Enemy’ (featuring The National’s Matt Berninger), it figures to be yet another commercially successful venture.  On the record’s sound, the band was quoted as saying that they opted for “more universal topics instead of introspection”, and that Love Is Dead is “the most pop stuff we’ve done and also the most aggressive and vulnerable at the same time.”  Check the record’s lead single below.

snow patrol please pull through and release an album at least better than fallen empires you had 7 fucking years to get good again

DoofusWainwright

Yikes. I'm saying at least three of these will be 'worst album of the year' contenders.

A week for replenishing my objectivity, I'm predicting three 1 ratings, two 1.5 ratings and a couple of 2's from J.Davis, Snow Patrol, Lordi, Jenny Hval, Biffy, Hoobastank and Candlemass.

Garbage week, next few weeks after this one should be killer though

Looking forward to the Aisha Burns. What I've heard so-far sounds great.

manosg

New Midnattsol has Liv Kristine on vocals which makes me want to check it but the samples I've heard were seriously underwhelming.

Atari
05.23.18
New Jenny Hval, oh damn :]

Sniff
05.23.18
Have all the worst artists decided to cluster their releases to this week or what's up?

Sniff
05.23.18
The last three ones should be good-ish tho

SowingSeason
05.23.18
I plan on reviewing that Bernice album, has potential

Willie
05.23.18
The Bleeding Through comeback is kind of weak. They dropped most the black metal influences. It's basically like Bleeding Through covers 18Visions (Or whatever the hell this guy's other Bullet For My Valentine-ish band is called).

JWT155
05.23.18
New chvrches couldn't be more underwhelming.

JWT155
05.23.18
New Hoobastank and Snow Patrol, what is this, 2004.

Divaman
05.23.18
I'll be checking out the new Chvrches, but I'm betting it will get multiple reviews, so I won't be writing it up.

SowingSeason
05.23.18
I'm assuming Snow Patrol and Chvrches will underwhelm but I'm still going to listen anyway. Long time fan of both bands.

Willie
05.23.18
Never heard Chvrches, but the cover has me interested. Probably just add their whole discography to Apple Music.

theNateman
05.23.18
Wasn't Weezer's black album rumored to come out this week?

SowingSeason
05.23.18
I've heard that as well but it doesn't seem to be confirmed. Hopefully it drops. That'd give this week a significant boost.

"Jo Passed: Their Prime"
Lmao that's brilliant

foxblood
05.23.18
idk almost all of these bands

neekafat
05.23.18
Some very good covers this week

BallsToTheWall

You can skip LTC, it's all good. I got it covered.

Danred97

Well, those are definitely albums that are being released this week. Man, this month has been so dry with releases.

Toondude10
05.23.18
eh, not really

NocteDominum
05.24.18
Looks like a pretty decent week actually

Divaman
05.24.18
Chvrches is kind of like if Fitz and Simmons from Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. had a band.

SowingSeason
05.24.18
I was thinking the same thing nocte. Chvrches, Snow Patrol, Jenny Hval, Hoobastank, and Bernice are all on my radar...I don't expect very many of those releases to be great, but just the fact that I have that many albums to investigate makes this a busy week for music.

Dewinged
05.24.18
Interested in some of these. Chvrches (even if I fear the outcome), Candlemass, Jenny Hval, Lunatic Soul and those 2 Black metal releases. I may even check the Jonathan Davies, why nat...

NocteDominum
05.24.18
Even as far as the metal goes if there’s some 3/5’s there I’ll be happy

MH18

"Wasn't Weezer's black album rumored to come out this week?"

Rivers did say it would drop this Friday, but I'm not getting my hopes up.

lol hoobastank [2]

DoofusWainwright
05.25.18
Well Hoobastank, J Davis and Snow Patrol are all 1 out of 5 quality - no one is surprised.

The first 20 seconds of the Lordi album is the best thing I've listened to so far from this lot.

Just a minute 'the second whore is on all fours...I put my fingers inside her and make her cum' - we have a winner! lmfao

Spluger
05.25.18
Not much jumping out at me this week. Probably gunna check Wayfarer & Wooden Shjips, maybe Jenny Hval.

theBoneyKing
05.25.18
Slow week...that's fine though because next week is huge.

PistolPete
05.25.18
Pusha T and ASAP Rocky both released surprise albums today. Definitely not a slow week for rap.

Flugmorph
05.25.18
very interesting week for releases

TheSpirit
05.25.18
great week... bleeding through and ritual necromancy m/ m/

Flugmorph
05.25.18
looking forward to that biffy clyro unplugged

DoofusWainwright
05.25.18
Natalie Evans sounds eight years old from her singing style. Dunno if that's good or bad

Flugmorph
05.25.18
depends on your attraction towards little girls i guess

DoofusWainwright
05.26.18
It turns out not so much, gonna 2/5 it.
