This is the usual amodelofcontrol.com round-up, of new music coming your way this week and soon, as well as a look at the events and gigs in the future, and finally nods to any other notable news that affects artists and music that I cover here.

/This Week/New Releases
One release that came out the day after last week’s post – a new album from GoFight, and on Anthem, they cover a number of songs that have resonance to them. It’s an intriguing set of songs, too.
Onto today, and there are four albums that are very much worth your time. Exceptional London band deux furieuses return with the furious My War Is Your War, and Swedish hardcore legends Refused reaffirm their political rage on War Music – and it’s well worth reading this interview with Dennis Lyxzén about the current thoughts of the band and where they stand politically.
Then, BATTLES (now down to a duo) release their fourth album of human-machine-electronic-rock-experimentation on the curiously-titled Juice B Crypts, and one of the most intriguing hip-hop acts of recent times, Clipping., have released their new album, There Existed An Addiction To Blood.
The other notable release has been a brutal new track from Machine Head. Do or Die is something of a vicious diss track, roaring back at his detractors, and frankly is the best MH track in many, many years.
/This Week/Upcoming Releases
Over on HANDS Productions, two notable upcoming noise releases that I’m sure my wife will be ecstatic to hear about: new albums from rhythm’n’noise masters Greyhound (A Storm Is Coming, 25-Oct), and The Last Days of S.E.X. (Close to Destruction and Still Beautiful, also 25-Oct).
