PÄNZER, the heavy metal "supergroup" featuring DESTRUCTION frontman Schmier alongside Pontus Norgren (HAMMERFALL) and V.O. Pulver (G.U.R.D., POLTERGEIST) on guitar and Stefan Schwarzmann (ACCEPT, ex-RUNNING WILD) on drums, will release its second album, "Fatal Command", on October 6 via Nuclear Blast. The follow-up to 2014's "Send Them All To Hell" marks PÄNZER's first release since the departure of guitarist Herman Frank (ACCEPT, VICTORY), who left the group to focus on his solo project.
Ibeyi have announced a new album, the follow-up to their self-titled debut. Out September 29 on XL, Ash features tracks with Kamasi Washington, Chilly Gonzales, Meshell Ndegeocello, and Mala Rodriguez, with production from Richard Russell. Watch the video for the Kamasi collab, “Deathless,” below. The Ed Morris-directed clip sees a miniature Naomi Díaz emerge from her sister and bandmate Lisa-Kaindé’s stomach, only for the cycle to repeat with increasingly tiny incarnations of the twins.
Number the Brave is the 11th studio album by rock band Wishbone Ash. It is the first album in the band's history recorded without founding bassist/vocalist Martin Turner. Turner was replaced (for this album only) by John Wetton, formerly of Family, King Crimson, Uriah Heep, UK and future Asia. Also featured on Number the Brave is vocalist Claire Hamill as backing vocals, who would permanently join Wishbone Ash on the 1981 tour.
New England is the seventh studio album by rock band Wishbone Ash. It was a success compared to the band's Locked In album, but still did not chart as high as most of their previous albums. This album would mark the "Americanization" of Wishbone Ash, as the band would relocate from England to the Northeastern United States (New England) for tax purposes. New England contained an even balance of hard rock songs and breezy, soft rock ballads, the latter of which would see further exploration from Wishbone Ash on their next studio album, Front Page News.
