Four of Arrows is the incredible new album from Seattle based indie rockers Great Grandpa.
A departure from the playful nods to pizza and zombies on 2017’s Plastic Cough, this beautiful collection of 11 songs weaves through the pains of familial divisions, partnership, internal and external forgiveness, and the struggles of mental illness, going headfirst into the darkness but escaping from the other side with their most transparent and accomplished work to date. A must-listen.

Indie-power-pop singer-songwriter extraordinaire, Chris Farren (of Fake Problems/Antarctigo Vespucci) is back with his new record, the full-on tongue-in-cheek titled ‘Born Hot’.
Nudging the listener towards a greater self-acceptance––or, at the very least, a more pronounced patience with their own messy feelings, Born Hot finds Farren putting his inventive spin on classic power-pop, with flashes of folk, punk, and even ‘50s doo-wop.
Renowned and long-beloved as a founding member of The Movielife and I Am The Avalanche, Vinnie Caruana is back with his bold new solo record - Aging Frontman.
Thought Delta Sleep were having a rest? Well surprise!
Having been all over the world with Ghost City, playing over 100 shows and travelling over 30,000 miles across several continents the boys are back with a brand-new 6-track EP – Younger Years.
Finding humour in the seemingly inescapable collapse of the human race: it might not be the most conventional approach to a record, but Cassels have already proved themselves to be anything but traditionalists. Developing a sound characterised by a maelstrom of erratic instrumentation and pointed, punk-inflected vocals, Cassels operate outside of strict genre distinctions. Sardonic and not wholly pessimistic, their second full-length LP ‘The Perfect Ending’ is stark, angry and occasionally funny, its take on divisiveness and dislocation written in the only way the Beck brothers can.
Watford’s finest indie-punks Nervus are back with their new record - Tough Crowd.
Stepping away from their signature self-recording, and with Neil Kennedy (Creeper, Milk Teeth) on board, the band’s new collaborative approach produces a set of results that’s there for all to hear.
While Em remains lyrically as political and hopeful as ever, Tough Crowd is ferocious, joyful, and as biting as it is inviting. It’s Nervus, but sounds like if Crass had helped write Pinkerton. Get it in your ears.
With two much loved 7”’s, as well as countless riotous live shows already to their name, it was only a matter of time before Brighton punks, Gender Roles unleashed their debut album on the world, and now PRANG is finally here.
Capturing the frenetic energy of their live shows, the new record sees their grunge/punk sound evolving into something a little more complex. The new songs blend in a lyrical honesty and nuance but retain the angst and charm of their earlier material, to make it sound unmistakably Gender Roles and their most complete work to date.
Cultdreams (formerly Kamikaze Girls) turned plenty of heads with their 2017 debut album Seafoam, and now they’re back in 2019 under their new moniker with the brilliant follow-up ‘Things That Hurt’.
Sounding as fresh and exciting as ever, this personal record retains the bands punk and riot grrl roots but pulls in different elements of shoegaze and dream pop into their sound. The result is an ambitious, bold sounding statement that encompasses everything of how far Cultdreams have come, and where they want to go.
Across the previous Slaughter Beach, Dog albums, Jake Ewald has crafted his sound. It’s one that incorporates pop music, indie-rock, folk, and just the faintest dash of punk in order to create something that’s accessible but still artistically rich. With Safe And Also No Fear, the band’s third album, Ewald has abandoned his usual practices in service of creating something richer.
I Spent The Winter Writing Songs About Getting Better is the new album from Brooklyn-based afropunks Proper.
The follow-up to 2017’s The Suburbs Have Ruined My Life, it finds Erik from the band far removed from his adolescent life navigating the Bible belt, now a young adult living in New York City. Sure, there are songs dedicated to drunken, late night escapades and the camaraderie that comes with newfound friendships. But there’s also more sobering reflections on ideas of familial issues, race, and sexual identity.
Continuously pushing the envelope as an artist and never one for conventional norms, Jamie Lenman is back on the 5th July to release Shuffle, an album that at its very heart is a covers album.
Exploring the idea of the ‘shuffle’, where the listener goes on a journey of their own choosing, Jamie explores the notion of skipping through a variety of media picking out favourites and stumbling upon interesting curveballs to create a playlist unique to the listener. Shuffle is Jamie’s ambitious artistic take on this idea.
After releasing their highly anticipated Kicker EP in the summer of 2018, The Get Up Kids have returned with their new full-length album, Problems - their first since 2011's There Are Rules.
Prince Daddy & the Hyena are the real deal. Having honed their craft in countless sweaty basements with their relentlessly fun, frantic and inclusive live shows, this creative and ambitious band are here with a joyous, cathartic record that’s sure to appeal to punk rock fans everywhere.
We think our roster is the best in the world and that needs celebrating. So here's a compilation featuring just a small handful of our artists, and it's all yours for whatever price you want.

Following up from the band's critically acclaimed 2018 album, Ghost City, this 12" features a collection of rarities including new versions of Sultans of Ping and Afterimage featuring vocals from Japanese math rock maestro's Tricot taking these beautiful songs further into dreamy, uncharted territory.
American Football are one of those bands that should need no introduction. Having spawned a global scene with their eponymous debut LP, they returned in 2016 with their eagerly anticipated second album, American Football (LP2).
Twenty years on from the first record, 2019 sees them return with LP3, a lush, rich expansive indie-rock record, that sees the band progressing far past the constraints of those first two records to create an evolving sound that showcases some of the best music of their lives.
anishing those winter blues, Orchards are back with a scorching 7" single featuring not one, but two brand-new songs!
Sounding bigger. brighter and more ambitious, these summery, glittery songs are the sound of a band exploring their creativity and knocking their songwriting and musicianship up yet another gear, offering a tantalising glimpse of what’s more to come from this brilliant band.
Where once upon a time, Pkew Pkew Pkew were the sort of punk band who revelled in the chaos of the mosh pit, or drinking a ton of beers, things have changed. The pit feels like a workout, hangovers are crushing, and the reality is starting to set in. They aren’t going to stop, but have had the realisation these things aren’t good for them.
Having released a staggering four full-length albums and five EPs over 11 years, the incredible David Bazan triumphantly returns, to bring you Phoenix - the fifth studio album from scene legends Pedro The Lion.
Live at St Pancras is the new live album from Jamie Lenman taken from the super intimate, invite-only show he did around the launch of Devolver last year.
For collectors and super fans alike, the physical release comes on a limited double white LP (or CD) along with a DVD featuring the live show and a whole lot of other exciting things including a new bonus track, 'Two Thousand Trees'.
For the uninitiated, the dreamy beachy pop-punk of Antarctigo Vespucci is the brain-child of DIY stalwarts Jeff Rosenstock (Bomb the Music Industry) and Chris Farren (Fake Problems). The result of two tour mates turned best buddies hanging out and making music together, they’re here to bring you Love In The Time of E-Mail, their second full-length record.
Canadian post-hardcore, punk heavyweights Single Mothers have returned with their new album, Through A Wall.
Recorded with the core duo of frontman Drew Thomson and producer/percussionist Ian Romano (Attack In Black, Career Suicide, City & Colour) along with a rotating cast of musicians, Through a Wall is packed top to bottom with blistering riffs, breakneck tempo shifts, and mosh-ready breakdowns - 14 raging tracks that revive the sound of the bands earlier output.
Six years since their last record, Cursive are back with Vitriola.
Remarkably their eighth full-length, it sees the band take a different approach to their tightly woven concept albums from the 00's, creating a less rigidly themed, reactionary record that struggles with existentialism, nihilistic despair and an oncoming dystopia that feels eerily near at hand.
