2024 has got off to a great start for new releases, we have loads of new arrivals in store including...

Green Day Saviors

'Right from “The American Dream Is Killing Me” — the first single and opening track from Saviors, Green Day is sending out a fiery SOS for these troubled times.'

Deluxe and standard vinyl versions available

No description available.

We have some promo posters to give away with each sale of the new album (while stocks last!).

Limited edition store exclusive Just Another Rainbow on 7" vinyl, the brand new single from Liam Gallagher and John Squire.

The first taster of this collaboration between Oasis frontman and Stone Roses guitarist,

'Opening with a trademark floral but crunching Squires riff before Gallagher growls “I might have known this would be just another rainbow“, the track soon blooms into a ’60s-indebted psych track complete with a wailing and star-gazing guitar solo.'

Tom Skinner, Jonny Greenwood and Thom Yorke return as The Smile’s new album Wall Of Eyes, will be released on 26th January on XL Recordings. The new album, was recorded between Oxford and Abbey Road Studios, and is produced and mixed Sam Petts-Davies. It features string arrangements by the London Contemporary Orchestra. Wall Of Eyes is the follow up their 2022 debut LP A Light For Attracting Attention.

Various formats to choose from!

'Future Islands' People Who Aren’t There Anymore heralds a new chapter for Future Islands who, despite having formed nearly two decades ago, continue to challenge themselves and each other.'

Chartoppers The Reytons are back with their 3rd album Ballad of a Bystander out on CD and LP.

Saxon proudly release their latest album Hell, Fire And Damnation, and when internationally-renowned actor Brian Blessed OBE delivers a proclamation for opening track, “The Prophecy”, expectations are automatically high. Have no fear and make no mistake, Saxon meet and exceed them on their 24th studio release, creating a superlative British Heavy Metal classic which strides the perfect line between confident, current power, and gloriously irreverent flexing of the New Wave of British Heavy Metal muscle which Saxon co-created.

Punk band Alkaline Trio return with new album Blood, Hair, And Eyeballs.


Irish Indie Rock band NewDad have been a recent fav. of ours since we heard them on BBC 6Music. We're excited to get their debut album Madra in the shop on CD nand Ltd LP.

Constant fav Frank Carter and the Rattlesnakes return with 5th album Dark Rainbow chock full of their own unique brand of anthemic punk rock.

Gruff Rhys - Sadness Sets Me Free

This incredibly is the 25th album he has released in his 35 year career individually, collaboratively and as a member of various bands. Sadness Sets Me Free is also the follow up to 2021’s Seeking new Gods, his first solo top ten record.

New Model Army are back with a new album Unbroken. 

British RockNRoll duo His Lordship release their self titled debut album, comprising of James Walbourne (guitars/vocals) and Kristoffer Sonne (drums/vocals) who have been described as the most exciting live band to emerge from the UK in the last 20 years.

Multi award winning, platinum selling artist, Tom Odell, returns in 2024 with his sixth studio album, Black Friday, following the release of the title track in September 2023. The song, ‘Black Friday’, a thing of delicate beauty that swells into an impassioned crescendo, marks Odell’s biggest launch on streaming platforms to date, with a massive 2 million streams in the first 24 hours of release. 

Latest album Three Bells takes Ty Segall’s trips so much deeper and farther than they’ve gone before — a masterpiece of personal expression, expressed through words, music and production, parabolically addressing malaise with compassion in a flowing, unstoppable hour-plus of intoxicating sound.

Phasia is a new ep from VHS Head

The fourth release in Fu Manchu’s 30th Anniversary reissue series, No One Rides For Free, is a remaster of the band’s debut album from 1993.
