Weekend Listening: Fury - Angels Over Berlin

YouTube | Spotify
You may have heard us talk about Fury on The Shape of a New Thing to Come. This isn't what I anticipated from them on their next album. More post-punk than I thought it would be. I'm seriously interested in hearing what else is to come on this release in May.

Weekend Listening: Bad Religion - Chaos From Within

YouTube | Spotify
Okay, it's been a long time since I've been excited about a Bad Religion song, let alone an album–the last one was, let's say ham-fisted. This aside, this track has me genuinely excited about the next album.

Bad Religion previously mentioned here, here, and here.
