With today being Friday the 13th, I thought this would be a good time to make the shift to labeling each show with Friday's date, instead of the traditional Thursday time-stamp. This makes things more realistic, considering that each new episode is uploaded on a Friday afternoon, after having been recorded on a late Thursday night/early Friday morning.

This episode begins with my excitement over the upcoming U.S. concerts from ROME, who have become one of my all-time favorite bands since their inception in 2005. To date, they have only performed once in the United States, but there will be four shows on our soil next week, all in California (see those dates here). I am fortunate/crazy enough to be flying out to see two of them, myself, so this episode begins with one of my current favorite songs, taken from the recent Die Aesthetik der Herrschaftsfreiheit triple-album collection.

Italy's Christina Plays Viola have issued a new promo EP for 2012, further exhibiting their '80s/'90s goth influences on such tracks as this episode's "Apocryphal Supremacy." You can grab that EP right here. Meanwhile, fellow Italians Chemical Waves have released another new single, The Great Dictator (free download here), which again features two versions of the single/title track, along with a more experimental/instrumental track, which is the one I found myself drawn to this time.

Ukraine's Nightchild A. -- an alternate project from one of the founders of The Nightchild -- emerged this week with a new instrumental EP entitled Images. The project serves as a place for material that doesn't quite fit the main project, having been inspired by such things as the soundtrack to the film 28 Days Later, which I paired them with on this episode. A video has also been created for their featured song "Abandoned Places."

Having just been confirmed to play Dragon*Con 2012, Calabrese return to the show this week with another undeniably catchy horror rock anthem from their brand new Dayglo Necros (you can score your own copy of it right here). For those who are also going to the Con this year, I hope to see you in the crowd when they perform. Ego Likeness returns on this show as well, this time with a dancefloor-filler from their new East EP. You can still order one of the last remaining copies of that one here, if you hurry.

Nebraska's Strap on Halo make their debut on this episode with a new, pre-album single. They will be joining such acts as Entertainment, Ex-VoTo, Lestat, and many more at the Age of Decay festival in Jacksonville, FL on September 22nd of this year. Since not many goth-specific American festivals happen these days, you might consider making the drive for this one. Details here.

More reasons to listen to this episode? Sure: More sounds from the new live Skinny Puppy album; a spotlight on the Nations Collide Tour featuring Nolongerhuman (which will be coming through Nashville for FREE!) next week; plenty of classic goth/deathrock; some shoegaze and neofolk selections; and several gems from the vaults.

For those in Nashville this weekend:  +SALVATION+ Gothic/Industrial Night is happening on Saturday the 14th, and we'll be giving away a pair of tickets to see Dead Can Dance's Nashville show. This edition has been billed our Family Reunion Event, which will feature resident DJ sets from myself, Jimmy, and Assimilat, as well as guest spots from returning +SALVATION+ DJs Nephilim and Reaver. It should be a fun night.
