Slim Shady sits at the head of this week’s new release table.
The Arcade Fire follow up their Grammy winning smash, and more…in this week’s new release column.
Pearl Jam, Pearl Jam, PEARL JAM!!!! The last time Pearl Jam had a new album out was 2009′s Backspacer which, for me at least, was kind of a blip on the radar of magnificent Pearl Jam releases. Since then, there have been the inevitable side projects and relentless touring as well as a certain drummer of the band reuniting with some other Seattle band for an album and subsequent tour (Soundgarden). But I digress. PJ is now back with Lightning [...]
The moment we’ve all been waiting for is finally here. The most anticipated album of 2013 has dropped and it ain’t who you thought it was cuz that guy released his album last Monday . That’s right, I’m talking about Hannah Montana herself, Miley Cyrus. It’s Bangerz baby! Unless you’ve been hiding under a rock for the last year or so, Ms. Cyrus has been making waves. She’s been criticized for her raunchy videos and a controversial VMA appearance but now she gets to prove whether it was [...]
It’s New Release Tuesday! No, it’s Monday. Why is there a New Release Report out on a Monday?!?! JT has an album out and he deemed Monday was the day it was going to be released? Oh, okay. That makes sense then. So yeah, here we are on a Monday talking about some new releases because Justin Timberlake has that kind of power and, frankly, who are we to argue? The second half of The 20/20 Experience hits today (Appropriately [...]
Nine Inch Nails and John Legend lead off a very busy new release week.
The last week of August brings forth a trio of releases from some artists that I either a) Never cared about, b) Used to love but don’t care about now, and c) Kinda sort of like but don’t care about anymore. As for a): There is something about Avenged Sevenfold that I vehemently hate. Is it that they’re headlining over deftones and Ghost on their upcoming tour or is it because, frankly, their music is awful? Regardless of my opinion, [...]
We’re picking up a little bit before the Summer ends with some big names and even bigger albums (We also have another contest to mention but more on that later)! Honestly, regardless of the new albums from Blue October, Travis, Jimmy Buffett, or Earl Sweatshirt today, all eyes are looking at John Mayer and Paradise Valley. Personally, I wasn’t a fan of his last one (Born and Raised) but this one seems to be getting praise from everyone. It also [...]
August is moving right along and the biggest thing this week is singles! One of the Blerd favorites, Kenna, releases a new one entitled “Relations” which we’re all dying to hear but that’s not all! The biggest release this week is actually from two people who weren’t supposed to have releases this week. Due to some leaks both Katy Perry and Lady Gaga went ahead and released their upcoming singles early. Do you like to “Roar” or give “Applause” more? Team [...]
First up, it’s time for a contest! Any Jason Newsted fans out there? Any Newsted fans who like vinyl? Well we’ve got your chance to win a copy on vinyl of the out today Heavy Metal Music (Which we reviewed back in July, read here )! All you have to do is tell us which Canadian rocker Newsted teamed up with for a project or two that was never released. Bonus points (And maybe a poster?) if you can name either [...]
The last week of July brings us white boy soul, a boy band from the past, and some angry boys bringing the arena-ready heavy metal. How’s that for eclectic? First up (And because I’m biased) is the latest (And first of TWO albums this year!) from Five Finger Death Punch. I reviewed it in my latest Metal Monday column and while the band isn’t reinventing the wheel by any means, they sure are proving why they’re playing to sold-out crowds and ready for [...]
