Cincinnati art-poppers Pomegranates return this June with a brand new LP entitled Heaven. Co-produced by the band and Miguel Urbitztondo (Cracker, Sparklehorse, Daniel Johnston), the album will see the group continue to build upon their trademark reverb-heavy pop and pulsating guitar sound.

Case and point: our first taste of Heaven, the infectious and danceable “Pass Away”. The track shows Pomegranates upping the fidelity while still maintaining their punky roots. Vocalists Isaac Karns and Joey Cook’s harmony-laden falsettos come across as nothing short of Barry Gibb-esque as they croon “ohh I need your loving” over and over again as the song fades out. Get on your dancing shoes and check it out below, along with Pomegranates upcoming tour schedule, which includes a stop at South by Southwest.

Heaven is out on June 5th via Modern Outsider Records.

Marching Onward

After being together for a quarter of a century, they've been called Illuminati, fundamentalists, and even fascists. Now, with their first new album in seven years, 'Marching Out of Babylon,' they're honed in more than ever, a steadfast and evolved version of themselves. Andrew Voigt digs a little deeper into the Swedish band's roots, uncovers the narratives on the new release, and finds out how a little playground spat brought the band together.

After an eight year hiatus, Love and Death return with 'Perfectly Preserved,' an eclectic and personal release for nu-metal icon and frontman Brian 'Head' Welch. Still at the heart of it all, the man with the dreads details his life in the spotlight after returning to Korn, the launch of a holistic recovery center, and his spearheading of an autobiographical documentary. As fresh as he's ever been at 50 years old, he's still got more to give.
