In Goosebumps Chronicles, we are following our heroes on their artistic way. It’s time to share 10 new acts released in the middle of the year 2020.
1. Heisa – Joni (2020)
In May 2020, Belgian band Heisa really delighted the auditory, as “Joni” was finally released. The trio continues brave experiments and reinvents the shapes of the stuff coming from their sincere hearts. Even more sharp drums, catchy guitar, plain bass lines and resonating synths over that.

7. Expander – Neuropunk Boostergang (2020)
Extraordinary quartet from Austin, Texas (USA) keeps bashing our bones. Now, in August 2020, even rawer and fiercer. Way more experimental and applied than before, expanding to the new extents. In case you have missed “Endless Computer”, it’s time to taste both things.
