Friday New Releases – May 26th

It is the last Friday of the month and Monday is Memorial Day here in the States which means we have a 3 Day Weekend.  Sadly, it is never a big week for new releases, but there is one I am excited about…Mark Slaughter solo album!!  That is really the only and it is highlighted in Blue!!

  • 51ipyjZGtlL._AC_US218_  Mark Slaughter – Halfway There – (EMP Label Group):  Mark Slaughter is back with another solo album and I am so glad to have him back with new music.  If Slaughter is not putting out albums, at least he is.  If this first song, “Hey You” is any indication of what is to come, then strap in and be prepared to have your ass rocked off!!
