‘Under Your Spell’ is the 7th album by the Birthday Massacre, and with it comes eleven songs that reveal a side of the Canadian band that audiences may not be familiar with. Driven with the band’s signature, unique blend of spiralling synth melodies, walls of guitar and evocative vocals, the new songs range from dark, aggressive anthems to danceable, pretty pop and hit all the bases that audiences have come to expect. However, there is also a rawness to the emotion being expressed, an openness and vulnerability that feels new.
One thing that is clearer than ever, however, is the tight bond that exists between the band members and their willingness to explore heartbreak and loss together. With these songs, they have entered the darkness of their most fragile emotions and returned with a cohesive and detailed musical portrait that captures both the anger and hope that exist within a moment in time.
The Birthday Massacre continue to make music that is so very unique to them. Once again, they have managed to create an album that somehow feels so familiar, yet challenges the listener to continue alongside them on their ever-changing, ever-growing journey.
The Birthday Massacre have made a second song from their upcoming new album available to hear:-

The Birthday Massacre chose the colour violet for all their subsequent artwork (after their 'Violet' EP), stating that “Violet is the colour of the tragic comedy. We associate it with fantasy and
melancholy. These themes make up much of the band’s lyrical inspiration. The colour also
mirrors our sound dynamic. Our music mixes contrasting elements. In turn, violet is the sum
of two contrasting colours: Red and Blue.”
Ghost Toast released a first single "Gordius" from their upcoming third album "Out Of This World". The album is released June 7th 2017 via Inverse Records. Listen to the single on Spotify: http://spoti.fi/2q7ORlt and check their music video out from here: http://bit.ly/2qaDpni
Ghost Toast is an instrumental, experimental progressive rock band from Debrecen, Hungary, formed in 2008. They love heavy, trippy music and film scores as well, so they use these elements to create their own music.
With their 3rd album, the band used elements of heavy prog rock, world music, folk, and electronic music. The songs on are connected by a loose concept - a connection between fantasy and some mythological themes (influenced by the Dark Tower saga by Stephen King, Dune by Frank Herbert, I am legend by Richard Matheson, Greek mythology, etc.).
The band names following artists as their influencers Tool, Faith No More, Mastodon, Crippled Black Phoenix, Ulver, Special Providence, Oceansize, Jaga Jazzist, Shpongle, Orbital, Ott, Plaid, Future Sound Of London, various film score composers (like Ennio Morricone, Jeremy Soule). So this tells that it is quite impossible to describe their music, you'll need to experience it by yourself!

Blackened hardcore act Bright End has released a new album called "Distance" via Indelirium Records. About the new album the band says: “'Distance' draws the mark of the falling. 'Distance' is the space between aimless strain and rebirth. Only scars show the sign of change on your skin. 'Distance' is an image of us.”.
Actress and singer Lea Michele will play a one off show at Shoreditch Town Hall, London on Friday 21st April
The intimate show will see her preview tracks from her new album ‘Places’ which is out 28th April. Tickets can be purchased here: http://leamichele.com/2017
Lea has also launched the preorder for the 11 track album, which features the previously released “Love Is Alive” and her powerful new song “Anything’s Possible,” which USA TODAY says is an “anthem that’s ready to inspire.” Lea recently performed “Love Is Alive” on The Late Late Show with James Corden and also appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.
“When it came time to name my album, I settled on ‘Places’ because this album for me represents a return to form, a return to the stage, and a return to the place I belong,” Lea says. “When you perform on Broadway the word “Places” is the last thing you hear over the loudspeaker before a show is about to begin. “Places” I thought was the perfect title for this music and how it reflects who I am as an artist today and where I come from.”
In 2009 Lea Michele debuted in her role as perfectionist firecracker “Rachel Berry” on Ryan Murphy’s critically acclaimed, Golden Globe- and SAG Award-winning series, “Glee.” In 2010, Michele was honoured with an Emmy Award nomination for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series and a Golden Globe nomination for Best Television Actress – Comedy. That same year, the “Glee” cast won the SAG Award for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy Series, among other awards.
She can currently be seen on Fox as Hester in the dark Ryan Murphy comedy “Scream Queens.” She also received raved reviews for her stage performance in the role of “Wendla” for the Tony Award-winning Broadway production of “Spring Awakening,” which earned her a Drama Desk Award nomination for Outstanding Actress in a Musical. While appearing on television and stage, Michele’s love for music has been a focus point in her career. In March of 2014, she released her album, “Louder,” which debuted at No. 1 on iTunes and in the Top 5 on Billboard charts. Her follow up album “Places” will be available April 28th.
