INCYMI: Pale Waves, Paramore, new beginnings & more

There's a lot of music to keep track of and not enough hours in the day. That's why every week, BANSHEE will catch you up on the music news you need to know. Pale Waves drops debut album, "My Mind Makes Noises" After releasing four singles, Manchester-native Pale Waves released their highly-anticipated debut album, My Mind Makes Noises. Released through Dirty Hit on Sept. 14, the album carries the listener through 14 tracks on muddling through the space where youth and experience overlap and unraveling romance. Their sweeping, '80s-synth sound gives off endless summer vibes while also grazing darker themes ("Eighteen," "Karl (I Wonder What It's Like To Die") But that's not all for Pale Waves. They revealed on an interview with Apple Music’s Beats 1 that they're already planning to release a "more extreme" EP which will house songs that didn't make the cut for My Mind Makes Noises. The EP is slated for February

Laura Jane Grace & The Devouring Mothers announce debut album, tour

Laura Jane Grace & The Devouring Mothers have announced that their debut album is on the way. The band has partnered with Bloodshot Records to release their debut album this fall though no album details or a release date have been revealed yet. In a statement, Grace said: “I’ve been a longtime fan of Bloodshot and the artists they work with. Having spent the past year working on a record without knowing where its home was going to be, when I discovered that the Bloodshot offices were only a couple of blocks away from my apartment I went in and asked if they’d consider giving the songs a home. They were cool enough to hear me out and oblige. I couldn’t be more happy about the work we’re going to do together and sharing it with the world.” Though described in a tweet as "a solo album," Laura Jane Grace & The Devouring Mothers
