Friday New Releases – September 8th

Finally!!! The new releases start picking up.  August was such a slow month, but it is about to get busy.  The floodgates are opening and the new releases are coming in full force.  So hold on and open your wallets, it is going to get expensive.  This week gets off nicely and the ones I am interested in are highlighted in Blue.  There should be something in here for everyone especially some great rock and a ton of country.  Let me know what you like.

  • 61u4pnXwDyL._AC_US218_  Alter Bridge – Live at the O2 Arena + Rarities – (Napalm Records):  Alter Bridge live is going to be good.  You have the boys from Creed and Myles Kennedy who is one of the hardest working singers in the business between Alter Bridge, Slash and so many other projects, he is always working.  There have been a lot of good live albums lately and this should be no exception.  The plus side is there are a bunch of rare tracks on here as well that really has my interest.

  • 61hNZekCmAL._AC_US218_  Jonny Lang – Signs – (Concord Records):  Blues rocker Jonny Lang is back with his first album in 4 years and it has been way too long.  I am looking forward to hearing some more of his guitar magic.  With a new album from Kenny Wayne Shepherd and now Jonny, blues rock is alive and kicking.

  • 51gtwMr0HdL._AC_US218_  Lynch Mob – The Brotherhood – (Rat Pak Records):  George Lynch!!  Enough said…well except it is great to have original singer Oni Logan back at the mic.  Should be great and if the song is any indication, it will be!!

  • 61zvt1BHJzL._AC_US218_  Living Colour – Shade – (MRI):  Living Colour has been away for more years than they should have been.  8 years since their last release, but better late than never.  The song “Program” is some kick ass rock and makes me excited about what else is on the album.  Gonna be a damn week of new music.

  • 51hbZZYW9KL._AC_US218_  Hanson – Middle of Everywhere – The Greatest Hits (2CD) – (Three Car Garage):  Hanson has a greatest hits album???  Hell yes they do.  The MMMbop boys were so much more than that song and have actually released some pretty good albums over the years.  Glad to see this.
  • 6109zC-bV3L._AC_US218_  Gregg Allman – Southern Blood – (Rounder):  This album will definitely get a listen after his passing a few months back.  It actually would have gotten a listen anyway.

  1. Intrigued by the Alter Bridge release, but the one I’m most likely to pick up is Mogwai’s new one. I don’t think they’ve released an album I don’t like…

      1. Their great. Seem to be putting out some of their best stuff over the last couple of years, too. It’s not everyone’s favourite, but I thought Rave Tapes was brilliant and Atomic is excellent too.


    Living Colour as well should be great ….
    Jonny Lang also saw him open for Aerosmith on the Nine lives tour. I think he was only 20 or so back than, Real good opener and even he jammed with Aero on Last Child!

    1. ALTER BRIDGE for me too!! I listened to Jonny on the way to work this morning and it is pretty damn good. I will listen to it again many times, but off first listen it could be in my top albums at the end of the year.


  3. Hanson!?!?!?! Being the great and dutiful husband I am, my wife and I are going to see them in L.A. on their forthcoming tour. She’s a huge fan, and whilst I’m not, they are more than just “Mmmbop”, you’re right.
