What to Expect in New Music for 2023???

2023 is upon us and it is always fun anticipating what new albums will come out in the year. Since today would normaly be a Friday New Release post, let’s look at the new releases coming our way in 2023. There are quite a few we already know about, but some haven’t been officially announced or even a date set yet.

Last year, there were a few artist I was hoping would release an album that might have or might not have released one.  It is always fun to hope for new music from these bands, but sometimes there are disappointments.  Here are the ones I was hoping to get new albums from last year and what actually happened…

  • Def Leppard – They’ve been writing…will we get the new album in 2022??  Or at least The Collection Vol. 4 which is the final in the series – We did get a fantastic new album called ‘Diamond Star Halos’ but no The Collection Volume 4!!!
  • Kiss – I will keep this on the list until I die!! – We did get 3 Off the Soundboard releases and the Creatures of the Night Box Set, so that was at least a success!
  • Guns ‘N Roses – Rumors, Rumors, Rumors!! – STILL NOTHING…But did get a Use Your Illusion Box Set…big whoop!
  • Aldo Nova – He keeps talking about a 2CD set, but will he get around to releasing it?? We did get a 10 song E.P. with highlights from the Rock Opera which was fantastic, but no full release yet of The Life & Times of Eddie Gage’
  • Poison – I think it is time for a new album! NOPE! They did the Stadium Tour with Def Leppard & Motley Crue…but nothing new and doesn’t look like there will be any time soon.
  • Will Hoge – His last one was 2020 so now is the time for another! And we got it!! It is amazing and called ‘Wings On My Shoes’
  • Billy Idol – He teased us with an E.P. in 2021.  A full album would be nice. Okay, No full album, but another killer E.P. I think I could take an E.P. a year.

Okay, are there albums I want to see this year from some of my favorite bands that haven’t been announced or in some cases even rumored?  Of course there are.  These are the bands I want new albums from this year…but it might not happen.

  • Def Leppard – Too soon for a new album, but give us The Collection Vol. 4!!
  • Kiss – I will keep this on the list until I die!!  At least give us another Soundboard LP.
  • Guns ‘N Roses – Rumors, Rumors, Rumors!!  Will we ever get a new album!
  • Aldo Nova – He keeps talking about a 2CD set for over 3 years and still nothing much, but will he get around to releasing the full Life & Times of Eddie Gage? I hope so.
  • Ace Frehley – It is time for a new album…no Origins, Vol 3…a new album!!
  • Bon Jovi – A new album WITH RICHIE SAMBORA!!!

From what I have gathered around the internet, here are the bands that should have new albums out in 2023, but no dates announced yet. The ones I would give a try will be highlighted in Blue. The ones with Dates Announced are at the bottom of this post. The list is building up nicely!!

  1. That’s a lot. Thanks again.

    What I’m most looking forward to is that BJ box set. Hope it’s on the way and a following tour with Richie would be great.

    Apart what u highlighted I’m also looking forward to new releases from Avenged Sevenfold, Chevelle, Dream Theater, Kamelot, Iggy, Black Star Riders, Girish and co, In Flames, Skillet, Robin McAuley, Creye, Inhaler. Did u know that Girish is the new singer on the next The End Machine album?

    But still what I’m really hoping for is that 40th anniversary box set from BJ!!!!!

  2. Bon Jovi boxed set? It’s the first I hear of it, but I’d be up for it.

    New Wig Wam, Defiants, Steel Panther, First Signal, yes please!

    A Crue boxed set after I bought all of the remasters just a few months ago? No thanks Nikki.

    1. Yeah, some rumors going around. I’m hoping for a lot of unreleased stuff and maybe some new stuff with Richie!! And Crue, they keep re-releasing the same 5 albums with nothing new…sorry, I’ll pass every time.

  3. I’ve already pre-ordered the GBV. The Time Out Of Mind intrigues me but it’ll probably be more expensive than my curiosity will allow. I’ll get the new Metallica, of course, and the Eva Cassidy would probably be lovely. Thanks for posting all of this!

  4. Rival Sons and Overkill are releasing new albums in 2022, and I am pumped! I’m excited for the new Metallica album too, but my expectations aren’t high for that one. A new Bon Jovi album with Richie would make my year too.
