Thy Art Is Murder – Godlike

Australian deathcore powerhouse Thy Art Is Murder has officially released their sixth studio album, ‘Godlike.’ Originally slated for release on September 15, 2023, the album dropped on September 22, 2023, through the band’s independent label, Human Warfare. The album was produced by the renowned Will Putney.

The band announced their studio work on the album back on April 7, 2022, and they later teased fans with a preview of the new material on October 25. On May 9, 2023, Thy Art Is Murder unveiled the album’s lead single, “Join Me in Armageddon,” along with a captivating music video.

The band officially announced the album’s release date, cover art, and tracklist at that time. They continued to build excitement with the release of the second single, “Keres,” on July 11, accompanied by another visually stunning music video.

Despite some production delays, Thy Art Is Murder delighted fans by delivering the third single, “Blood Throne,” along with a music video on August 15. Due to these delays, the band postponed the album’s release to the final date of September 22.

Dayshell – Pegasus

Dayshell’s highly-anticipated fourth album, ‘Pegasus,’ has taken flight, thanks to the unwavering support of dedicated fans who generously contributed to “Operation Pegasus” on GoFundMe.

The new album, ‘Pegasus,’ by Dayshell, is scheduled for release on September 22, 2023. This album was brought to life through the collective effort of passionate fans who rallied behind the band’s GoFundMe campaign.

The album boasts powerful singles such as “Letting Go” (2022), “You Wish” (2023), and “Not Welcome” (2023). Fans can expect a sonic journey that pushes the boundaries of creativity and expression as ‘Pegasus’ prepares to make its mark in the music world.

Silent Planet – Anunnaki

Silent Planet has treated fans to the latest glimpse of their upcoming ‘Superbloom’ album.

The California-based band’s highly anticipated 12-track project is slated to drop on November 03, courtesy of Solid State Records, and the official announcement was made just last month.

The release date holds special significance for the band as it coincides with the anniversary of their harrowing van accident, which occurred when their vehicle suddenly flipped on black ice during a drive through Wyoming.

This accident left lead singer Garrett Russell with hearing loss struggles, but it ultimately deepened his connection with music and the ‘Silent Planet’ project.

The forthcoming album will feature previously released singles like ‘Collider,’ ‘Antimatter,’ and ‘:Signal:,’ along with the ferocious new addition, ‘Anunnaki.’

Rain City Drive – Frozen

Atlanta-based rising stars, Rain City Drive, have just unleashed their latest single, ‘Frozen.’ The track, which debuted during their electrifying performance at the Coca Cola Roxy, is creating quite a buzz among alternative rock enthusiasts.

These fresh releases are sure to elevate your New Music Friday to new heights. Don’t miss out on these incredible tracks and immerse yourself in the vibrant world of music! Happy listening!
