Leeds natives Chasing Dragons have announced that they are to release a new EP.
Faction:Prologue is scheduled for release on the 29th of March and is described thus by the Yorkshire outfit: “…a whirlwind of riffwork and a rhythm section you could set your watch to. Underpinning it all are the vocals of singer Tank, who leads from the front with true punk attitude and a will to succeed.”
Sounds good to us!
As the name might suggest, the EP is intended as a precursor to a longer album in the future, and to whet your appetite the ‘Dragons have released a behind-the-scenes studio teaser that you can check out below:

Steven Wilson has released a teaser trailer for new album Hand. Cannot. Erase.
The clip is accompanied by haunting blog entries ‘written by’ the album’s lead character, a reclusive artist.
One cryptic blog entry reads: “Recently I’ve been haunting myself. A few days ago I woke up some time in the middle of the night, but didn’t open my eyes for a long time, just lay there listening to the rain on the window. When I did open my eyes I was standing at the end of the bed just watching.
“Then I leaned over and handed myself an envelope with the words ‘A List of Betrayals’ written on the front. I haven’t had the courage to open it yet.”
Cavalera Conspiracy have released a teaser featuring clips from every track on their new album, Pandemonium.
The LP is slated for release on the 3rd of November via Nuclear Blast.
In a statement about the forthcoming album, Nuclear Blast said: “Cavalera brothers Max and Igor delude nobody when it comes to determination and stubbornness. Pandemonium is no exception – frontman Max rushes with a bellow of rage into the fray, lets his brother drum the coarsest grooves, and puts his finger into the open wound.”
Max recently described the work as “very, very heavy – the heaviest of all three” and added: “I was really possessed to get Igor back to his Arise era of drumming, everything fast.”

The full tracklist for Pandemonium is:
