Louder's Tracks Of The Week: new music from Duff McKagan, Amon Amarth and more


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 latest from Guns N’ Roses mainstay and rock’n’roll Godfather Duff McKagan, who offers a rootsy, almost Primal Scream-esque single from new solo album Tenderness.

Joining him are Viking metal purveyors Amon Amarth who return with a blistering single from new album Berserker, and the Cranberries, whose poignant new single features vocals from Dolores O’Riordan, recorded before she sadly passed away last year

We've got the latest from Scot-rock firebrands Idlewild, punk-rock posterboy Frank Iero, Brooklyn art-punks Grim Streaker, surf-soaked singer-songwriter Shana Cleveland and Oakland musician Hether Fortune’s shimmeringly dark new single.

Elsewhere we've rounded up the best of the world's post-hardcore, indie-rock, post-punk, blackened death metal, hard grunge 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 Hands Off Gretel, whose win marks their second Tracks Of The Week victory.

3. Pretty Pistol - Bait
2. Kozen - To The Wind
1. Hands Off Gretel - It's My Fault
