Friday New Releases – April 21st

Rock fans rejoice!!  There are an abundance of rock records out today.  There are a variety of other genres as well including a Barry Manilow release, but ROCK is KING today for me.  My favorites to listen to are highlighted in Blue. There will be more on the list I am interested in, but will get listened to whenever I have time.  I hope there is something here for you!  Happy Friday and Happy Listening!!

  • 61loxgv4ial-_ac_us160_  Crazy Lixx – Ruff Justice – (Frontiers Records SRL):  The Swedish “Hair” Metal band is back with a new line-up after losing their major songwriter, Andy Zata.  After hearing the first song, they still sound the same bringing us loud rock & roll.  Hoping for more of the same on the rest of the album.

  • 51xac57bxxl-_ac_us160_  Thunder – Rip It Up – (Earmusic):  English band, Thunder, is bringing us their 11th studio album.  They came about in 1990 right when the 80’s rock was dying out and missed out on being a huge band.  They have been going strong (off and on) since and I am looking forward to another great release from Danny Bowes and company.

  • 61zwaoqcubl-_ac_us160_  Rhino Bucket – The Last Real Rock & Roll – (Acetate Records):  The gritty rock band from California also came out back in 1990 when this style of rock lost out to bands like Nirvana and what a shame.  They remind me of old school AC/DC and I am looking forward to some new material.

  • 170x170bb (1)  Incubus – 8 – (Island Records):  A third band from the early 90’s is Incubus.  The big difference between Incubus and Rhino Bucket & Thunder is that Incubus’ style of rock is what killed off these other bands from making radio hits.  Now Incubus is back with some new music and I am just as eager, if not more so, for this release.  Loving “Nimble Bastard” so far…

  1. Incubus is one of my favorite bands of the 2000s and I’m glad they’ve released a new album. I don’t like “Nimble Bastard” as much as some of their older songs, but it’s still a good song with great lyrics, which are always a highlight of their music.

  2. Oh yeah, Thunder! Can’t wait to give it a listen. 🙂 I’m also going to check out Crazy Lixx for sure. I haven’t heard of them, but there’s an excited hair metal fan in me!
