Friday New Releases – August 12, 2022

Happy Friday everyone…you did it! You made it to another weekend and not a moment too soon. To celebrate, why don’t you help yourself to some new music. I know I will as there are two I’m really interested in and they are highlighted in Blue. Take a look through the batch we have for your this week as we have over 35 releases today. See which ones you want and let us know. Also, let us know what we may have missed so everyone else knows as well. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you all have a wonderful weekend.

  • 71wEDFrXRML._AC_UY436_FMwebp_QL65_  Hollywood Undead – Hotel Kalifornia – (BMG Rights Mgmt): I’m not a huge Rap fan by any means. Not something I like much. However, throw in some metal and hard rock beats and Hollywood Undead is something I really enjoy. They are now on their 8th Studio album and I am still along for the ride.
  • 91odpcia9kL._AC_UY436_FMwebp_QL65_  Collective Soul – Vibrating – (Fuzze-Flex Records): Collective Soul has been around since 1992 and 30 years later, still going strong. These local boys (well, close enough as they are from Stockbridge, GA and was from Marietta, GA) have been a favorite since the beginning and I am happy to add another album to the collection. They are on their 11th studio album and can’t wait.

Friday New Releases – August 5, 2022

It is August, Summer is creeping to an end, but the heat is getting hotter…speaking of H.E.A.T. The only album I’m interested in is the new H.E.A.T. album. There are a bunch other releases so let me know what you want to hear first this week and if we missed anything. Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend.

  • 91s3H1io7ZL._AC_UL640_FMwebp_QL65_  H.E.A.T. – Force Majeure – (earMusic / Edel Music & Entertainment): I really liked their last singer, Erik Gronwell, but he left and is now in Skid Row. Great a new singer…but wait. The new singer is their original singer Kenny Leckremo and he is pretty awesome as well. Finally a band changes a singer, I am not unhappy about it. Can’t wait to spin this one!!

And all the rest…

  • 91Wr4oPJf-L._AC_UY436_FMwebp_QL65_  Neil Young and Promises of the Real – Noise and Flowers (live) – (The Other Show Productions / Reprise Records)

Friday New Releases – July 29, 2022

July is over!! Tell me it isn’t so. That means Summer is getting close to an end. Thankfully a vacation is coming soon, but until then let’s talk business. Today is Friday which means we have a whole new batch of new releases for you. This week there are over 40 to choose from and some heavy hitters this week. For me, there is only one album that I remotely care about this week and when you see it, you will know why. It is the first on the list and I am a huge fan!! Let me know what you want to hear this week or what we may have missed as it does happen. Thanks so much for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend!!

  • 6173vjJhCQL._AC_UY436_FMwebp_QL65_  Matt Nathanson – Boston Accent – (Acrobat Records): I love Matt Nathanson, no not in that way, in a musical way. His music moves me, his lyrics are painted pictures and the stories he tells are so relatable. He’s completely and utterly brilliant. I have this one on order although the vinyl won’t be here for months, my CD and the digital download will be here today. I’m ready to spend a lot of time with this one.

And then there is the rest…including the great Beyonce!!!

  • 61BZfdV19hL._AC_UY436_FMwebp_QL65_  Beyonce – Renaissance – (Parkwood Entertainment / Columbia Records)

Friday New Releases – July 22, 2022

Is it hot enough out there for you? Probably so as it definitely is for me. What else is hot is this week’s batch of new releases. We have over 30 for you so hopefully you can find something to listen to over this fine weekend. I have one I’m eager to spin and it is first in the list. Let me know what you want to hear this week and if we missed anything. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you all have a fantastic weekend!!

  • A1-DRmWmYEL._AC_UY436_FMwebp_QL65_  ZZ Top – Raw: That Little Ol’ Band From Texas Soundtrack – (Tower Top Tours / Shelter Music Group / BMG): The ZZ Top documentary was awesome. One of the best I’ve seen in a long while. I think it stopped way too early and would’ve been more informational if it would have continued on until more recent times rather than stop at their MTV Peak. Regardless, they are finally getting around to a soundtrack for the album so get ready to crank this baby out!

And then all the rest…

  • download-1  Jack White – Entering Heaven Alive – (Third Man)

Friday New Releases – July 15, 2022

Things have been busy at work so time has been limited and thankfully for me and my wallet, this week is lacking in things I am eager to hear. I need to catch up on everything I’ve purchased lately. There are a ton of releases so hopefully you will find something new to hear. Let me know what that might be and if we missed anything this week. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you all have a great weekend!!

  • 8141mfCufbL._AC_UY436_FMwebp_QL65_  Orianthi – Live from Hollywood – (Frontiers Records)
  • 91kWo2PpbtL._SX522_  Anthrax – XL – (Megaforce Records)

Friday New Releases – July 8, 2022

Happy Friday…I hope everyone is staying cool. Speaking of cool, we have a bunch of cool stuff for you this week. We don’t have as much as some weeks, but there are still over 30 releases this week. I have a few I am interested in hearing and some I’ll get to eventually and those will be bolded. Let me know what you want to hear this week or what we may have missed. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a great weekend!

  • A1q6kVDyt3L._AC_UY436_FMwebp_QL65_  James Bay – Leap – (Mercury Records / Republic Records / UMG): James Bay is back and it has been awhile as it has been 4 years since his last one. He is a fantastic guitarists and his music leans between folk, pop, rock, Americana and whatever else he feels like playing. I am excited to get some new tunes.
  • 81zTZ0x99hL._AC_UY436_FMwebp_QL65_  Journey – Freedom – (Freedom JN / BMG): Speaking of being gone awhile, Journey hasn’t had a new album in 11 years…that’s right…11 years. It is about time. Can’t wait to hear Neal rip on guitar and Arnel sing his heart out (man what a voice he has). Even Dean Castronovo sings on one song so this should be a good listen. Can’t wait to hear it.

Friday New Releases – July 1, 2022

Wow! Already July and sadly, there are not a lot of releases this weekend and that couple that we are coming up on July 4th…Independence Day in the U.S. and maybe they know everyone is either traveling and/or spending too much on Fireworks. There is one I am excited about and have pre-ordered. Hopefully it will be here today. It is the first on on the list. Let me know what you want to hear this week. Thanks for stopping by and I hope everyone has a great and wonderful weekend!

  • 812wUhU32NL._AC_UY436_FMwebp_QL65_  Shinedown – Planet Zero – (Atlantic Recording Corp): My one big listen this week (and purchase) is Shinedown’s new one ‘Planet Zero’. This is the band’s 7th album in almost 20 years, so not too bad. They keep pushing themselves and trying new things and I can’t wait to hear what they bring to the table this time around.

And then we have all the rest. Hopefully you find something you like!!

  • 814REH0ZWOL._AC_UY436_FMwebp_QL65_  Imagine Dragons – Mercury – Acts 1 & 2 – (KidinaKorner / Interscope Records)

Friday New Releases – June 24, 2022

With over 60 albums released today, you would think I would find something I had to buy. However, you’d be wrong. There are things I will eventually give a listen, but nothing I am running out to buy. That doesn’t mean there isn’t anything good. There are a ton. And I am sure, as a result, you would find something in this batch of stellar releases. Let me know what you want to hear or what I may have missed. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!!

  • 81RjYMOky6L._AC_UY436_FMwebp_QL65_  Black Stone Cherry – Live From the Royal Albert Hall… Y’all – (Mascot Label Group)
  • 71hIuy3yYZL._AC_UY436_FMwebp_QL65_  Coheed & Cambria – Vaxis II: A Window of the Waking Mind – (Roadrunner Records / Elektra Records)

Friday New Releases – June 17, 2022

We are in the middle of the month and still a ton of releases. This week we have around 50 releases for your viewing pleasure today. I actually have a bunch I want to hear (before I buy) and one that is already on order and will be here today. Those are first up and marked in Blue. Let me know what you are digging this week and what we may have missed as that does happen. Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you all have a great weekend.

  • 81Yj5OhV38L._AC_UL640_FMwebp_QL65_  Lit – Tastes Like Gold – (Round Hill Records): It has been 5 years since their last album and it was more tinged towards country than the pop punk they usually do. This time they are going back to their original sound…thank goodness. Here’s hoping for a return to form.
  • 81M+f+CiYnL._AC_UY436_FMwebp_QL65_  Iconic – Second Skin – (Frontiers Records): Another Frontiers Supergroup which is actually getting kind of ridiculous…but is one is featuring Nathan James (Inglorious), Michael Sweet (Stryper), Joel Hoesktra (Whitesnake), Marco Mendoza (ex-Journey, Whitesnake), Tommy Aldridge (Whitesnake). It was co-produced by Michael Sweet and Alessandro Del Vecchio (Hardline, Revolution Saints). Hard to argue with a line-up like that. And the fact Michael Sweet isn’t even singing is a huge surprise. Nathan is a beast on vocals so this should be good.

  • 71GwKGGe-5L._AC_UY436_FMwebp_QL65_  Kiss – Off the Sounboard: Donington 1996 – (Universal Music / Simstan Music): We are now on the third edition of the Off the Soundboard Series and that is two for this year. Rumor has it one more will be coming. This one is Reunion Era Kiss so I am excited about this one as the original 4 are back!!
