I’ve been following Will Haven since the release of their 1997 album El Diablo, when I encountered the song Ego’s Game on a Revelation Records sampler CD (back when those still were a thing).

So, I haven’t done a straight up spotlight on a band in a while, but it was about time I did another. The band I have chosen is the incredible band So Stressed. The band was only introduced to me today, but they have already made an impact on me. So Stressed have just released their sophomore album The Unlawful Tade Of Greco-Roman Art and it is so brilliant.

You can stream all of So Stressed‘s The Unlawful Trade Of Greco-Roman Art below. You’ll thank me afterward. Continue reading
French sludgy post-hardcore purveyors Watertank have premiered the official video for their track “Surrender” over at Noisey.
