We’re cheating with our pick for If You Buy One Thing This Week. Swan Songs, the new split EP from long-time Thrash Hits favourites Bastions and French progressive hardcore types Burning Bright. Technically it doesn’t get released until December, but they started taking pre-orders on it last week, and we reckon it’s good enough that it deserves your money right now.
You don’t have to shell out your hard-earned cash entirely on our word though. Palm Reader Records, who are responsible for the split’s release and distro here in the UK, are streaming the entire thing over on their Bandcamp page. Go listen to it. Spend a minute releasing that we were bang on with our recommendation. Hand over some cash. Feel warm and fuzzy inside for having helped support two kickass bands by purchasing their forthcoming release. Then go listen to the stream again.
