Foo Fighters: But Here We Are

The Foos are now members of the Rock And Roll Hall of Fame, inducted in 2022 (Grohl was also elevated as a member of Nirvana, in 2014), and 11 albums deep in a rocking career, one that was ignited by struggle. Grohl and his Foos have had to pick up their shattered pieces once again following the untimely death last March of their talismanic drummer, Taylor Hawkins. Working through heartbreak, the band reassembled those pieces for But Here We Are, the Foos’ 11th and latest studio album.

To coincide with the album release, the band will embark on an extensive live season, starting with a 26-date tour in the USA. They will be co-headlining with US alternative rockers Garbage, creating an exciting lineup for fans to enjoy.

Rob Grant: Lost at Sea [Decca]

Speaking about his debut album, Lost At Sea, Rob Grant said: “My debut album ‘Lost At Sea’ is out today! It’s an ethereal album – inspired by my love for the sea and for sailing. It’s music that is meant to bring you peace and calm, and to take you on a hypnotic ambient journey. The 14 tracks include a wide range of piano instrumentals and soundscape compositions. And best of all there are two breathtaking vocal collaborations with my daughter Lana Del Rey. The title track ‘Lost At Sea’ and ‘Hollywood Bowl’.

“This project took two years to complete. Along the way I had the privilege of working with some of the most talented producers and engineers in the business. Jack Antonoff, Luke Howard, Zack Dawes, Laura Sisk, Benji and many others. The end result is an album that is deeply personal, and emotional. I hope you love it as much as I do!”

Godflesh: Purge [Avalanche]

Thirty-one years after the release of their sophomore Godflesh album Pure, Justin K Broadrick and Ben Green (and Machines) allude to this one aspect of the band’s crushing history with their new album Purge, released on June 9th on Avalanche Recordings. As the band’s press release states, the title is also a reference to how songwriter Justin K. Broadrick utilises the music of Godflesh as a kind of therapy for his diagnosed autism and PTSD.

Jayda G: Guy [Ninja Tune]

Jayda G’s new album, ‘Guy’, was released today (June 9th) via Ninja Tune. Co-produced with UK artist Jack Peñate, the record is her second full-length release for the label and features contributions from Lisa-Kaindé Diaz of Ibeyi, among others. The album is named after Jayda G’s late father, William Richard Guy, reflecting on his life and the impact of his “conscious decisions.”

Youth Lagoon: Heaven Is a Junkyard [Fat Possum]

After a seven-year hiatus, Trevor Powers has revealed his latest album under the moniker Youth Lagoon, titled “Heaven Is a Junkyard.” This release marks his first since 2015’s “Savage Hills Ballroom” and is set to be available on June 9 via Fat Possum. Powers decided to revive the project after experiencing vocal cord damage due to an adverse reaction to an over-the-counter medication, which left him temporarily voiceless for eight months.

Slipknot: Adderall EP [Roadrunner]

Slipknot has surprised fans with a new EP called “Adderall,” released through Roadrunner. The six-track EP includes alternate versions of the album track “Adderall” and three new songs: “Death March,” “Red or Redder,” and “Hard to Be Here.” This release follows their 2022 LP, “The End, So Far.” Additionally, keyboard player Craig Jones has recently left the band after 27 years, and Slipknot is currently touring in Europe.

It is the group’s second full-length album excursion into thrash — following 2019’s Infest The Rats’ Nest — though, as you might expect, PetroDragonic Apocalypse is no mere retread of Rats’ Nest’s gory glories, but rather a full evolutionary step all of its own.

Queens of the Stone Age: In Times New Roman… [Matador]
