Anticipated Albums: Birds In Row- We Already Lost The World


Over the last few years I’ve noticed a musical explosion happening in France. There seems to be something in the water out there because the quality of bands coming from that region is astounding. One band that I’d like to focus on is Birds In Row. This post-hardcore/punk band is really about to set the world on fire with their new album We Already Lost The World (out July 13 via Deathwish Records). The two songs released so far, “15-38” and the album opener “We Count So We Don’t Have To Listen” are beautifully devastating while packing quite a hooky punch. With this being the bands second full length album, you can tell that Birds In Row have found their sound and are set to take flight.

New Release: Thrice- The Grey


Thrice have released a new song called “The Grey.” The band announced today (after months of rumors) that they have signed with Epitaph Records and are going to be releasing a new album later this year along with a full scale headline tour which starts September 21 in San Diego and ends in Los Angeles November 18. Joining Thrice on tour will be The Bronx.

“The Grey” sounds like Thrice. It sort of picks up where they left off on To Be Everywhere Is To Be Nowhere with a bit of the Major/Minor sound.

New Release: Hopesfall- H.A. Wallace Space Academy


After a very long break, Hopesfall have returned following a lengthy hiatus. Hopesfall’s new song “H.A. Wallace Space Academy,” is off their upcoming album Arbiter (out July 13th) their first since 2007’s Magnetic North. This new song picks up where they left off but also rekindles the classic style they had on their landmark album The Satellite Years.

Anticipated Albums: Sevendust- All I See Is War


Now on their 12th album (yes 12, crazy I know) Sevendust is back doing what Sevendust does, and that’s bring the ROCK. Their upcoming album, All I See Is War (out May 11 via Rise Records), is shaping up to a bit of a continuation of all the things fans of the band enjoy based on the two songs released so far, Dirty and Not Original. One thing that needs to be mentioned time and time again about Sevendust is how great of a singer Lajon Witherspoon is. That guy, man, he’s got so much soul in that voice and it’s bleeding all over this album. Check out what they have in store for us all.

Anticipated Albums: Will Haven- Muerte


One band that I’ve always thought of as totally underrated is Will Haven. They never fully got their due when they came out. Hailing from Sacramento just like thier friends in Far and Deftones, Will Haven took a more aggressive approach to their music. I truly thought that when their landmark album Carpe Diem was released in 2001, they would have finally got their due but, sadly that didn’t happen. Though that album is widely accepted today as one of the most underrated and influential albums since the turn of the century.

Today Will Haven released the first song from their upcoming album Muerte (out March 23rd… PRE-ORDER HERE). This song entitled “El Sol” is blistering, epic and features Stephen Carpenter from Deftones.

Upcoming Will Haven Dates:

03/23 Sacramento, CA – Holy Diver (album release show)
05/04 Fullerton, CA – Programme Skate & Sound
05/05 San Diego, CA – Brick by Brick
05/06 Hollywood, CA – The Viper Room
06/23 Portland OR – Star Theater



New Release: Stone Temple Pilots- Roll Me Under


Stone Temple Pilots have released another new song from their upcoming self titled album due out March 16. It’s very well known that no one will ever come close to Scott Weiland and his talent, melodies, and lyrics, that’s just irreplaceable. Stone Temple Pilots seem to have found the right guy for the job though. On the two songs released so far, “Meadow” and the new one “Roll Me Under” Jeff Gutt fits the profile of what the next singer of STP should sound like. He’s right in the range vocally of Scott so it won’t be a stretch for him to sing the older songs. The new song “Roll Me Under” sounds like a classic STP song. At least it’s not anything as bad as their work with Chester Bennington.
