New Music Updates

Here are a few highlights of some upcoming releases featured on RELEASE WAVE.

MILLY's second album, "Your Own Becoming," is a powerful collection that showcases the band's evolution and introspection with their fuzzed out alternative / slacker rock meets grungy yet hook-filled slowcore sound. Produced by Sonny DiPerri, the album will be released on June 28, 2024, via Dangerbird Records.

Hard Chiller, a new project featuring members of RX Bandits, From Indian Lakes, and No Motiv will drop their debut EP, "Heavy Cell," on June 28, 2024, through Born Losers Records. Expect a dreamy and heavy alt-rock sound that blends the best of the '90s with a modern twist, while still taking inspiration from their past projects.

Muted Color's debut LP, "take i lovely you," releasing on July 5, 2024 via Fever Ltd will sweep you away with its melodic layers of guitars and dreamy melodic hooks. These Chicago rockers craft a perfect blend of jangly dream-pop, shoegaze and brit-pop on their debut LP.

The Story So Far's new album, "I Want To Disappear," was released on June 21 via Pure Noise Records and is a summer pop punk album meant to crank through your car stereo with the windows down. With producer Jon Markson at the helm, the band continues to deliver their signature vulnerability and defiance through 10 memorable tracks.

The Dangerous Summer from Baltimore released "Gravity" on June 21, 2024, via Rude Records. Dive into their emotionally charged alternative rock sound that's both anthemic and introspective that is sure to please both old and new fans of the band along with fans of bands like Jimmy Eat World, Kings of Leon, The Early November and the like.
