Happy Friday! For those of us in the States, we celebrated our Independence Day on July 4th and now it is time to celebrate Friday New Releases. Go grab a new album and let me know what you get. This Friday, there are not a ton of releases and only a couple I want to check out…they are highlighted in Blue. I hope you find something you like.
- Riverdogs – California – (Frontiers Records Srl): Def Leppard’s own Vivian Campbell and the other Riverdogs bring us their first new album in 6 years. They are blues based, hard rock band and they never disappoint. This will be the one I run to first and give it a listen.
- All 41 – World’s Best Hope – (Frontiers Records Srl): Frontiers Records is a great record company and they are known for bringing great artist together for a special project and this is no exception. The band has Terry Brock from Giant & Strangeways on lead vocals: Robert Berry from Three & Alliance on bass and lead vocals; Gary Pihl from Boston, Sammy Hagar & also Alliance on guitar; and lastly, Matt Starr from Ace Frehley’s band and Mr. Big on drums. I will give it a listen.
