You need a hard rock and metal playlist for the weekend, and we've got you covered! Every Friday, we will curate a new playlist inspired by the last few days (and maybe the next few weeks). We're including new music that we've heard and loved, some recent releases we can't get out of our heads, songs from bands who made the news in the past seven days, and some classics from anniversaries that we've celebrated. Here are some of the highlights of the latest Weekly Wire:

It's been years in the making, but this week, Tom Morello has finally released his Atlas Underground album. For our review of the album, head here.

This week, we also have new music from Disturbed, Greta Van Fleet, Nita Strauss, Audiotopsy and Witherfall, among others.

Get your fill of some new rock and metal tunes in the Weekly Wire playlist below.
