NEW ALBUMS

ALTER BRIDGE – WALK THE SKY

After 15 years of releasing consistently solid albums, Alter Bridge‘s latest, Walk the Sky, ranks among their very best.


FOALS – EVERYTHING NOT SAVED WILL BE LOST PART 2

Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost Part 2 is Foals‘ second album of the year and is “indisputable proof of their greatness” according to NME.


ROB HALFORD – CELESTIAL

Celestial is the Metal God’s second collection of Christmas songs (Halford III: Winter Songs arrived in 2009).

The new collection feature’s Halford‘s take on classics such as God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen, Away in a Manger, Joy to the World, The First Noel and plenty more.


JIMMY EAT WORLD – SURVIVING

Surviving is the tenth album from emo/pop-punk veterans Jimmy Eat World, and their fourth album of the decade.


MARK LANEGAN – SOMEBODY’S KNOCKING

Mark Lanegan is one of the most sought-after singers in rock.

Lanegan spent 15 years in an alternative/grunge band; but his solo albums don’t sound anything like that. Each new solo album is different from the last.

Somebody’s Knocking will be issued on pink vinyl as part of the Ten Bands One Cause initiative which raises money for Gilda’s Club NYC to support those diagnosed with cancer.


REFUSED – WAR MUSIC

Swedish hardcore punk group Refused have released their fifth album. War Music is their second album since reuniting in 2014, and their third since 1998.


STONE TEMPLE PILOTS – PURPLE: SUPER DELUXE EDITION – 25TH ANNIVERSARY REISSUE

25-by-god-years of Stone Temple Pilots‘ classic album, Purple. The 3-disc reissue contains the 2019 remaster of the album, a disc of early versions/demos/acoustic versions, and a live show recorded in New Haven, CT on 8/23/94.

Among the demos contained within is this beautiful demo of The Beach Boys‘ “She Knows Me Too Well”:


THIRD EYE BLIND – SCREAMER

Screamer is the 6th album from Third Eye Blind.

Screamer will be issued on pink vinyl as part of the Ten Bands One Cause initiative which raises money for Gilda’s Club NYC to support those diagnosed with cancer.


WHITE REAPER – YOU DESERVE LOVE

White Reaper‘s 2017 album The World’s Best American Band was briskly written and recorded in just 32 days.

Their third album, You Deserve Love, is more of the catchy garage rock/power pop they’ve demonstrated on their previous two albums.
