Welcome, music fans, to this week's round up of the best new rock music the world has to offer. This week, we welcome the comeback of LA hellraisers Hollywood Vampires – AKA Messrs Alice Cooper, Joe Perry and Johnny Depp – and their new single Who’s Laughing Now.
Metalcore titans Motionless In White released two new singles this week, though sadly there’s only room for one – the bruising Brand New Numb – in this week’s column. They’re joined by Eagles Of Death Metal, who’ve left the sleaze behind for a second with their surprisingly faithful cover of Mary J. Blige’s Family Affair.
Elsewhere, indie Godfather Beck returns with a new single produced by Pharrell Williams, no less, while TOTW favourite Pixx unleashes a lilting slice of grunge-infused rock’n’roll in the shape of new single Bitch.
We've also rounded up the best of the world's punk-metal, alt-rock, post-hardcore, mind-meltingly heavy riffs, 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. Congrats to the three below, especially to heavy afro doom trio Vodun, who scooped top place.
3. Bad Breeding - Exiled
2. The St Pierre Snake Invasion - Casanovacaine
1. Vodun - Ascend
