3by3 have announced that they will release the new album by JK Flesh, the moniker of Justin Broadrick (Godflesh, Jesu and countless others). Posthuman will be released on April 30th, and certainly resembles the darker side of Broadrick's sound (circa Techno Animal, Godflesh and Greymachine) but simultaneously contextualises this within the unfamiliar turf of the post-dubstep/industrial canon pushed by 3by3. The result is an album of soul-crushingly dark beats and bass, layered with Broadrick's inimitable guitar and vocal fuzz that will resonate with fans of Godflesh and the post-dubstep landscape alike. More specific information about the vinyl release will be revealed in the coming weeks so stay tuned and if you are attending Roadburn 2012, then be sure to check out JK Flesh as artist in residency at the festival.

On May 21st, Finnish metal superstars Children Of Bodom will release Holiday At Lake Bodom (15 Years Of Wasted Youth), a CD+DVD career retrospective in celebration of the band's 15th Anniversary. The release will spotlight specially selected tracks from every one of the band's critically acclaimed albums, plus two newly-recorded cover songs and detailed liner notes penned by the band themselves. The DVD portion of the package will include "candid touring and backstage footage from around the world”, plus the never-before-seen music video for ‘Shovel Knockout’.

15 Years Of Wasted Youth is the sound of Children Of Bodom working hard, partying hard, being relentless and stubborn," says the band's superstar frontman Alexi Laiho, “we went through many brick walls to get to where we are, and after seven studio albums, two live albums, non-stop touring, bleeding and breaking a lot of bones, I think we are justified in putting this album out. Let the music speak for itself. You have been warned."

The release of Holiday At Lake Bodom (15 Years Of Wasted Youth) continues Children Of Bodom's year-long anniversary celebration, which kicked off with the band's highly successful "15th Anniversary" headlining tour of North America.
