Vampire Weekend – “Harmony Hall”

Finally! New Vampire Weekend AND we know, after they teased the acronym FOTB, the new albume title is Father Of The Bride. It’ll be out in spring, which gives you a fair amount of time to get ready to sing along to this new one when they play Echo Beach on June 5th!
 

Florence + The Machine – “Moderation”

Florence + The Machine is already back with new tunes after releasing the Mercury Prize nominated High As Hope last year. This one came out just in time for some tour announcements. We’ll keep you posted when a Toronto show is on the map.
 


 

Foals – “Exits”

Foals have two releases for 2019: Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost Part 1 and Part 2. The band says that this song reflects the state of our times. The first record, out March 8th, is more keyboard driven and the second will be a bit heavier and out in autumn.
 

The Cranberries – “All Over Now”

After the shocking passing of Dolores O’Riordan last January, The Cranberries announced that there would be one last album as a band to be released. They’ve named their final release In The End, and it will be out April 26th.
 


 

Judah & The Lion – “Over My Head”

The Tennessee trio Judah and the Lion have been called folk-hop and roll, and they’re back bringing their blend of genres with this new one all about staying afloat.
