Swedish post-rock collective PG.Lost have announced the release of their fifth full-length album. The new record will be titled Versus and will see a release through Pelagic Records on September 16. Guitarist Gustav Almberg commented on the forthcoming effort:
“It is possible that some things that on the surface seem totally different could be a perfect match. But mostly the album title is a reflection of today’s society that seems to get more and more polarized. Boundaries of what is okay to say and do are constantly moved towards something that feels dehumanizing, and all the fucked up idiots crawl out of their caves all the way up to the top of the mountain.”
The album’s artwork, track listing and teaser trailer can be seen after the break.

Described as “Today Is the Day meets ZZ Top”, Something Is Waiting have crawled out of the ever prolific Chicago metal scene with a unique and immediately arresting sound that will stick to the minds of those who listen. Born out of the ashes of grungy noise rock outfit Jar’d Loose, Something Is Waiting purvey a sound that weaves together the corrosive angularity of AmRep noise rock with 70s/80s classic hard rock and metal swagger. At the center of it all is vocalist Eddie Gobbo, whose acidic snarl and snarky lyrics give the music even more character than it already had. Svbterranean recently caught up Gobbo to talk about the band and its new album, classic records and Halloween plans.
