After much fanfare and inquisition THE PRETTY RECKLESS release their much anticipated follow-up to 2012’s EP “Hit Me Like a Man” with “Going to Hell”. I’m not entirely sure which is the clear winner between them and POP EVIL for THE new band everyone’s excited to see at Rockfest! Guess we’ll find out on Saturday, May 31st! Other notable releases for today include: SAXON: The Complete Studio Album Collection 1979 – 1988 and UFO: The Complete Studio Albums Collection 1974 – 1986. Both of these can be bought together via Amazon. OZZY’s latest guitar god, GUS G, drops a solo album, today, with “I Am the Fire”. I’ve told you guys about KILLER BE KILLED, the super-group with members of DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN, SEPULTURA/SOULFLY, MASTODON & THE MARS VOLTA, here’s two tracks from their self-titled, debut album, dropping in May off NUCLEAR BLAST RECORDS.
Remember HOWARD JONES ex-KILLSWITCH ENGAGE VOX? He’s got a new group, DEVIL YOU KNOW, which is dropping their debut album in April, on the 29th, titled “The Beauty of Destruction”. Here’s a teaser for “Seven Years Alone”.
DOWN rolled out a new track, recently, with “We Knew Him Well”. If you’re not aware DOWN is comprised of PHIL ANSELMO of PANTERA, PEPPER KEENAN from CORROSION OF CONFORMITY. Be on the look-out for their latest EP, “Down IV – Part Two”, May 13th.
AND speaking of PANTERA!!! To celebrate the 20th Anniversary of “Far Beyond Drive” there’s, naturally, a deluxe reissue coming your way in one week, on the 25th! It’ll be newly remastered with a new, live, performance from the Monsters Of Rock festival, 1994.
