Welcome, music fans, to this week's round up of the best new rock music the world has to offer. UK alt-rockers Enter Shikari are leading the charge this week with new single Stop The Clocks. An infectious, electro-driven alt-pop offering, the single has been released ahead of the band's headline slot at Reading and Leeds Festivals next week.
Also in the mix is the newest single from prog-metallers Opeth, who've cranked the prog up to 11 with new single Svekets Prins (which translates into English as Dignity). Joining them is the latest from pop-rockers You Me At Six, whose new single What's It Like is all moody synths and stirring, beat-driven choruses.
Elsewhere, classic rock gets a good showing with another new single from The Darkness, who unleash the joyous Heart Explodes, while Joe Elliott takes a second off from Def Leppard to reveal the latest from his other band, the Down 'n' Outz. Originally a Mott The Hoople cover band, the band's latest album is the first to feature majority original material, including lead single This Is How We Roll – an Elliott-penned rocker. Meanwhile, The Magpie Salute bring the southern-fried Americana with new single In Here.
We've also rounded up the best of the world's symphonic post-punk, sleaze-rock, alt-hip-hop, noise-rock, good old-fashioned rock’n’roll and pretty much everything in between.
But for now, we take a look back at last week's winners. Heartfelt congratulations to the three below, particularly to Salvation Jayne, who absolutely stormed into first place with 71% of the final vote.
