Posted by Lee Conybeare on

As May draws to a close we have some great new releases for you to catch up with in store now, here's a little taster...

The mighty Paul Weller's 17th solo album and his 28th in total is out now. Titled 66 it 'marks the completion of his 66th journey around the sun and was released on May 24th – the day before his 66th birthday. 66 is quite a reflective and inward thinking album that pulls back the camera lens and shines a light on the way Weller’s creativity interacts with his wider world.'


And see UK tribute band The Jam’d at Louth's Riverhead Theatre. Saturday 13th July 7.30pm. Tickets £16










'Grammy award-winning, multi-platinum rock band Kings of Leon are back big with their 9th full-length studio album, Can We Please Have Fun. As the title suggests, it’s a document of one of this era’s great rock & roll bands cutting loose, trying new things, and, yes, having some fun. Recorded at Dark Horse studio and produced with new collaborator Kid Harpoon (Harry Styles, Florence and the Machine) the album sees a new side of Kings of Leon.'

'Grammy Award winning duo Twenty One Pilots release their new album, Clancy, via Fueled By Ramen. Clancy marks Twenty One Pilots’ first ­studio album in three years and follows Scaled And Icy.

Co-produced by Joseph and Paul Meany, Clancy marks the final chapter in an ambitious multi-album narrative first introduced in the band's 2015 multi-Platinum breakthrough, Blurryface.'

Out 31st May


Good Grief is the first new solo album in 25 years from songwriter and producer Bernard Butler (Suede / McAlmont & Butler). Between then and now, Butler had ventured into the world of pop songwriting and producing, including two seminal albums with folk musician Sam Lee, a Mercury nominated project with actor Jessie Buckley as well as working with Bert Jansch and Ben Watt From Everything But The Girl, The Libertines, Tricky and an eight-million selling, Grammy-winning record with Duffy.

Of returning to solo work after two and a half decades, Butler says ‘For a good while I was scarred and I was scared. I was happily distracted and joyously involved with so much music. I realised just being there was more than I had ever hoped for. I gave a lot to other people, but realised that my story was defined but what I was, rather than what I am. I set myself a modest commercial goal, an expectant creative one: perform to 10 people without being bottled, then find 11 the next night. Thus began the undoing of my own embarrassment. I would write as I thought and sing as I wrote until the bottles fly. And so, the songs arrived.’

Out 31st May

'Multi-platinum alt-rock trio Wallows release their highly anticipated third studio album, Model. The John Congleton-produced album arrives via Atlantic Records. Wallows (composed of Dylan Minnette, Braeden Lemasters and Cole Preston) have been best friends since the age of 11. They began playing music together in the LA music program Join the Band almost two decades ago and haven’t stopped since.'

Grammy®-winning Arooj Aftab is releasing Night Reign tomorrow on CD and Vinyl. We also have had new releases in from Jordan Rakei, Jimi TenorKid Congo and The Pink Monkey Birds, The Darts and a recent fav from Chappell Roan back in. Reissues from Thin Lizzy, The Beatles, Don Rendell & Ian Carr and Roxy Music also in.

Various - Now That’s What I Call Rock Anthems is a new collection of classic rock bangers is in on CD and Vinyl.


Oasis’ debut album Definitely Maybe celebrates its 30th anniversary. The fastest-ever selling debut in the UK on release, this seminal album marked the point when Oasis became a cultural phenomenon. Including the classic singles ‘Supersonic’, ‘Live Forever’ and ‘Cigarettes And Alcohol’, its songs sound as fresh and relevant as they did in 1994. Having sold over 6.9 million copies globally, it also sits as the 2nd most streamed album of the 90’s (following Oasis’ (What’s The Story) Morning Glory? at no.1).

New 30th anniversary formats released to celebrate this landmark date include a Limited Edition deluxe 4LP and 2CD featuring including the previously unreleased and discarded original recording session from Monnow Valley along with outtakes from Sawmills Studios plus a demo of Sad Song featuring Liam’s vocal - all recently mixed for this release by Noel Gallagher and Callum Marinho.'

Date for your diary, Louth festival Outfields will be happening 15th June...
Louth's beloved Zero Degrees Festival of music, art, comedy and dance is taking a break this year but will be back in's what they said...
'For over 10 years Zero Degrees has been at the cultural beating heart of Louth. This year will be a fallow year for us, allowing us to take stock, reach out for new people and different ideas, and re-group for 2025 with fresh impetus. Several new arts projects have appeared in the town recently, and we feel they present an exciting opportunity for the festival to increase in size and the range of events.

We will still be supporting a handful of established events organised by some of our key partners in the town for 2024, as well as continuing to help publicise other groups’ events via our social media channels.

We’ll be in touch for 2025, and look forward to your continued support, helping Zero Degrees to continue as the main umbrella organisation for the many dedicated local groups whose work creates the rich and varied cultural landscape of our wonderful town, making Louth a better place for us all.

A big thank you to the volunteers, sponsors, councillors, venues and organisers who have supported us so far, and to everyone who has come along to our events. Without the help of volunteers, the festival can't thrive and grow. If you are interesting in becoming a volunteer, in whatever capacity, please do get in touch'


For those of you who remember Louth's Not That Kind of Gallery which recently closed its doors, good work is still continuing in the guise of a CIC (Community Interest Company) 'promoting positive mental health and self acceptance through music and the arts'.
