Friday New Releases – May 4th

Happy Friday and May the 4th Be With You!!  Yes, I went there on Star Wars Day!!  There aren’t a ton of releases but a few I am excited about.  I will highlight those in Blue as usual.  Go through and let me know what you like or what I might have missed.  I hope you enjoy and have a great weekend.

  • 51JgZnr7AML._SS500  Shinedown – Attention Attention – (Atlantic Recording):  The main one I want to hear is the new Shinedown album.  The song “Devil” was freaking awesome and I love the whole idea of loose concept album.  It isn’t a full on concept album, but the songs will take you on a journey of a person who is starting in a very dark, ominous place and take you all the way through to the other side where this person is done battling his mind and his issues and coming out a changed person.  Check out “Devil” and then get this album.

  • 71idNtL4rWL._SX522_  Mat Kearney – CRAZYTALK – (Tomorrow Music):  Mat Kearney is one of the finer singer/songwriters out there and he never gets enough credit.  He has some great pop sensibilities, but takes risk and tries new things.  I don’t like to listen to his albums ahead of time, I like to be surprised and I hope this will bring many.

  • 61OztEGhI4L._AC_US320_QL65_  Galactic Empire – Episode II – (Rise Records):  And for Star Wars Day there is nothing better than Galactic Empire.  The Star War Heavy Metal Band brings a new batch of Space Metal Songs.  I am going to post two songs.  The first one is a track from the new album.  The second is an old track but an actual music video so you can see what you are in for and not just hear it.  Wow!!

  • 61hurudzByL._SS500  Parkway Drive – Reverence – (Epitaph)
  • 313j-czn2PL._AC_US436_QL65_  Lincoln Brewster – God of the Impossible – (Integrity Music)
  • 61tJlnES73L._AC_US436_QL65_  Joey Alexander – Eclipse – (Motema Music)
  • 81LaQz81VIL._SX522_  Belly – Dove – (Belly Touring)
  • 61YfPSukDYL._AC_US320_QL65_  Matt & Kim – Almost Everyday – (Fader)

  1. Reef and Gaz Coombes have album’s out today, so I’ll likely check them out (though I haven’t been too impressed with the Reef stuff I’ve heard).

      1. Yeah, I find loads of stuff to check out thanks to this community of ours. So much music that I either didn’t know about or I discarded!

        I think you’d like Gaz, y’know. Reckon his stuff would appeal.

  2. Something tells me that Galactic Empire timing wasn’t accidental…Interesting that the Han Solo movie doesn’t come out for a few weeks, they managed to resist the temptation!
