A New Band: Heretics

It's not often I discover a new band before the release of their debut album; I tend to find out about bands after they've been on the music scene a while, but after having a listen to a few tracks from this band, Heretics, I am now eagerly anticipating their debut album, which I think is self-titled, due for release on 22nd November on iTunes. (More information to come soon)

I first discovered this band after they covered the Klaxons song Echoes (here), and Klaxons gave their approval and even put it on their Twitter. I thought it was a good cover, but unfortunately forgot about it. A few days ago, however, I chanced upon that video again, and had a look for more Heretics songs, and ended up enjoying all of them. Here are the three music videos the band have on their YouTube: Safety Net, Don't Be Late and my personal favourite, We Could Leave.

New Hadouken! Album And Single Confirmed

Mecha Love, the first single from Hadouken!'s upcoming third album (confirmed to be due out early 2011), will be released to iTunes on 18th October.

New Pet Shop Boys Single

The new Pet Shop Boys single, Together, will be released officially on 29th November. However, it will be included on their upcoming compilation, Ultimate, released 1st November.

The Wombats Album - New Release Date

I thought the date of 29th November for the new Wombats album was a bit optimistic, and I was right - now it has been confirmed that the new Wombats album will be released on 7th February 2011.

We also now know the name of the first track on the album, Anti-D; and another track, Techno Fan. The album has already spawned one single, Tokyo (Vampires & Wolves).

Ladytron - New Song

If you have FIFA 11, you'll probably have already heard this - but this has been confirmed as Ladytron's next single (I think to promote their upcoming compilation CD). It's called Ace Of Hz and it's awesome. It will be released on 30th November, according to their Twitter.

The band's fifth album will be out next year, whereas the compilation is set for late 2010.
