Sam Teskey, guitarist for ARIA Award-winning Melbourne band The Teskey Brothers, releases Cycles. It’s the debut solo album from the 2019 ARIA Engineer Of The Year. The Teskey Brothers topped the Albums Chart last year with Live At The Forum (#1 May ‘20).

Legendary Sydney punk band The Hard-Ons return with their 13th studio album, I'm Sorry Sir, That Riff's Been Taken. It’s a new phase for the group, who are now fronted by You Am I’s Tim Rogers. This year marks the band’s 40th anniversary.

British singer-songwriter Sam Fender returns with second album, Seventeen Going Under. It comes two years after his debut release, Hypersonic Missiles, and includes the singles ‘Aye’ and ‘Get You Down’.
