Midweek Metal (and rock and stuff) Madness coming your way from our Fab Four From… erm… the inbox.

William Control – “Confess”

It isn’t every day that an unsigned artist tops the charts, but that is exactly what William Control has done with his new release The Pale E.P.. Not only has the first instalment of the eagerly awaited new album Revelations hit number one in the Billboard Dance/ Electronic charts, it has also scored the number one spot in the Heatseekers chart too!

To celebrate, William Control have released a brand new video, for single “Confess”, which you can check out below.

Johnny Deathshadow – “Kill The Lights”

Not a new video, but given a push to publicise their ongoing UK tour. The German industrial Goths started yesterday but you can catch them tonight at The Shed in Leicester, tomorrow in Swansea at Crowley’s, on the 12th in Whitchurch (Percy’s) and on the 13th in Bournemouth (The Anvil).

Topsy Turvy’s – “Escape”

Official music video and Japan tour report including the song “Escape”, taken from Topsy Turvy’s new EP I Expect Nothing and I’m Still Let Down. It came out on 16th October 2015 in Europe and will be release on 28th December 2016 in Japan.

Hotei – “Walking Through The Night” (featuring Iggy Pop)

Japanese superstar Hotei has just released the video for his new single “Walking Through The Night”, which features the iconic Iggy Pop on vocals.

The video follows a man’s nocturnal journey through the seedy back streets of Tokyo, lured by the bright lights of temptation. Stunningly filmed and featuring shots of Iggy Pop and footage of Hotei, the video is a gloriously evocative taste of Hotei’s homeland that chimes with the snarling lyrics. Iggy explains his inspiration for the track:

I tried to put myself on a late night brightly lit Shinjuku street, feeling alone, sexually vulnerable and a little bit angry… a little bit horny…
