You just have to know where to look! A good place to start is going to gigs put on by goth clubs in your area (or if there aren't any then go further afield), in the UK a lot of clubs host gigs by newer goth bands and events such as band nights and festivals. It's a good way of finding out what's out there. You can also find out by checking out Unscene magazine. They interview bands and do reviews every issue as well as give a free cd compilations. Among the newer bands some of my favourites include Uninvited Guest, Ghost of Lemora and Zombina and the Skeletones. You still also get bands that may not necessarily be goth but are popular among goths like The Birthday Massacre and Emilie Autumn.
