GREEN DAY – FATHER OF ALL…
The 2015 Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductees have released their first new album since 2016’s Revolution Radio.
Kerrang! magazine has given it 4 out of 5 stars:
Father of All… is just another sign of a band who have always done things their way refusing to do what’s expected of them. And it’s a hella mega good time from start to finish
NADA SURF – NEVER NOT TOGETHER
It’s been 24 years since Nada Surf released their debut album, High/Low. An album that resembled Weezer‘s blue album, largely because both albums were produced by Ric Ocasek.
You may not know their name, or knew they did anything after their 1996 hit song “Popular”, but they’ve been releasing consistently better-than-good albums this whole time.
New album, Never Not Together, is their eighth album of all new material, and first studio album since 2016.
ORTHODOX – LET IT TAKE ITS COURSE
Nashville metalheads Orthodox have just released new album, Let It Take Its Course. This album is for you if you can’t get enough Korn or Slipknot.
Exclaim gave the new album an 8 out of 10 and stated that Orthodox have “solidified themselves as tastemakers in crafting striking metal music.”
SEPULTURA – QUADRA
Sepultura‘s latest is a concept album involving astronomy, geometry, arithmetic and music.
It’s also not a coincidence that there are 12 songs on the album and the same number of months in a year.
STONE TEMPLE PILOTS – PERDIDA
Stone Temple Pilots have returned with their second album in 2 years, which also happens to be their second album with new lead singer, Jeff Gutt.
New album, Perdida, is a largely acoustic affair.
AUGUST BURNS RED – DEFENDER
The Grammy-nominated metalcore quintet announced a new album this week. Guaridans will be released on April 3rd. Listen to lead single, “Defender”, embedded below.

STONE SOUR – TUMULT DEMO
When Corey and I finished up recording the Project X demos, we knew that we had to put a band together to be able to play out. First, we asked Danny Spain (who tracked drums on the Project X demo) to join, but was formerly in the band ‘Down The Sun’, so he was out. I suggested Joel to Corey because the two of us had jammed around a little the year prior. Corey made the call and Joel was back behind the drum kit once again. One day Shawn stopped by Corey’s place and listened to the Project X demos and said “It’s pretty cool.. I guess I’ll play bass.” The 2nd guitar player spot was offered to Josh Brainard, the original Slipknot guitarist that James replaced. He turned down the offer to focus on his own new project. So the four of us started rehearsing for the first show. About a week out from the show, James told Shawn he wanted to play with us and he joined the band. We knew we needed a great closing song for the live set, so we went back to the Stone Sour vault and grabbed Tumult. This is the original recording from 1996.” – Stone Sour guitarist Josh Rand
