Due March 24, the new deluxe box set includes CD and gatefold vinyl of the newly remastered studio album and Blu-Ray + DVD audio featuring the original 5.1 mix and remastered stereo versions.

Enter Shikari have shared a music video for their new song '(pls) set me on fire', which is the lead single from their forthcoming album, "A Kiss For The Whole World" that arrives April 21st.

Rou Reynolds had this to say about the song and video: "I've not always been happy with our previous music videos, so figured I'd put my money where my mouth was and direct these ones myself.

"I wanted the '(pls) set me on fire' video to feel minimal and uncomplicated, which is actually the polar opposite of the next video. So, given that the main function of this video is really just to set up the next one, I think it came out f****** great." Watch the video here.

New Found Glory have shared a live performance of their song "The Story So Far" from the NFG Unplugged Total Request Livestream in 2021.

Award-winning American singer-songwriter and guitarist Arielle has released a music video for the title track to her new studio album, "'73", which will be released on April 20th.

The new album is a sentiment of love and an ode to her personal 1973 Volkswagen Bay Window Bus that Arielle lovingly refers to as Magick - a celebration of its 50 years of existence.

Mixing classic rock, the songwriting of the sixties, wanderlust, and plenty of The Who inspired guitar, Arielle's new studio album is set to stun. "I bought my bus because every time I step into it, I feel like it's a time machine," says Arielle. Every time I step in, it takes me back to '73." (continue)
