Here we go people!! Viva la musica!!! Some noteable new music for today and some big announcements to look forward to!
Rockfest alum and returners BLACK LABEL SOCIETY have their latest effort out today with "Catacombs of the Black Vatican"!! Catch BLS on the Monster Energy Stage at 3:50pm!
Former RED HOT CHILI PEPPER's guitarist JOHN FRUSCIANTED has unveiled a new solo effort in "Enclosure". Speaking of RHCP, as you've undoudtebly heard, FLEA will be kicking out an autobiography. No date of release, yet.
CROWBAR's gonna drop some noise on May 27th with "Symmetry in Black" and if you're looking for a little teaser, then look no further than this little number "Walk With Knowledge Wisely".
I told you guys about TAYLOR HAWKINS (drummer for that lil band foo fighters) getting out from behind the kit and assuming vocal duties for a new side-project THE BIRDS OF SATAN. Now their self-titled debut album doesn't drop till next week BUT you can stream the entire thing right here ---> https://soundcloud.com/thebirdsofsatan
THEORY OF A DEADMAN have annoucned the month of July for their latest album, "SaVages". A month before that, on June the 17th, Swedish Metallers OPETH will roll out their 11th studio album in "Pale Communion" AND on June 24th CORROSION OF CONFORMITY will kick out "IX".
OFF! (featuring KEITH MORRIS of BLACK FLAG & CIRCLE JERKS) drop their 3rd studio album with "Wasted Years". OFF! is to be out on tour soon, sadly, no plans for KC.
In mid-August we'll see the 20th anniversary deluxe reissue of THE OFFSPRING's "Smash". It'll have all the bells and whistles that one would expect from a deluxe reissue.
ANNNND to round out this list, I just found out & can nearly contain my excitement CLUTCH is in pre-production mode for their next studio album! They're to team up with LIONIZE for a split seven-inch single for RECORD STORE DAY!
