I became a fan of Austrian post-black metal act Harakiri For The Sky a few years back and have enjoyed and actively sought out their material ever since.

Andrew W.K. is coming out with a new album in March, and has released a new teaser for it! The song is called “Music Is Worth Living For,” and it is classic Andrew W.K.

Bleeding of the Light will be released on March 30.
