It's always good news when The Legendary Pink Dots come out with a new album, and this show begins with the first track from The Gethsemane Option, which has just been released on Metropolis Records. The band will hit the road this Fall in the US and beyond. You can see the tour dates here.

It's a busy time for the current post-punk and modern goth scene. This show features a short list of new entries from all corners of the globe and the genre. Germany leads the charge this time, first with a second dose of the new Bloody Dead and Sexy album, Bad Ambient, then with the premiere of fellow Germans salvation AMP. Their new album Hidden Faces can be investigated further here.

Meanwhile, in Belgium, KTAOABC (aka Kiss the Anus of a Black Cat) has been releasing free recordings of cover songs they've captured at recent shows. The first was a SWANS cover -- and the second? A Virgin Prunes classic that you'll hear on this show. Making an overdue premiere on this episode is Portland, Oregon's Dead Cult, whose cassette release Surviving in a Dying World came out last year, but finally makes its debut here and now.

Speaking of a busy season for the modern post-punk, deathrock, darkwave, and traditional goth scene, I spend a few minutes on this episode talking about my new club night, Fascination Street, which starts on Saturday, July 6th @ The East Room in Nashville, TN. My apologies to those far from the area, but I'm more than a little excited. For those who may wish to attend, here's the event page, with all the details.

Back to the new music, London's White Lies have emerged with one of the catchiest singles I've heard in a long while, acting as free teaser for their upcoming album, Big TV. Fellow Londoners AlterRed return with with their latest electro-cabaret cocktail, The Time It Takes to Smile, which closes a conceptual trilogy of albums. Learn more here.

Also in the electronic/industrial realm, you'll hear a bonus new b-side from Snog, followed by a look at early industrial and EBM, inspired by the release of ThouShaltNot vocalist/composer S. Alexander Reed's new book, "Assimilate: A Critical History of Industrial Music." Pick that up here, and check out this in-depth interview he did about it on NPR.

On the heavier end of the spectrum, the long-awaited new album from Austria's Summoning has been unleashed. The once-again Tolkien-obsessed subject matter and epic-scale fantasy black metal are in top shape on Old Mornings Dawn. Get it in several varieties here. And while you're thinking in epic terms, you'll also hear a taste of Hans Zimmer's sweeping score to the newly released "Man of Steel" film.

You'll hear all of that, PLUS: Dragon*Con 2013 updates about the Cabal Cut of "Nightbreed" and "The Return of the Living Dead" star Linnea Quigley; a classic '90s dark/black metal retrospective, and several deathrock/post-punk selections from the vault, along with trivia, tour news, and much more...
