Liam Gallagher is back again with a new single “Shockwave” from his upcoming second solo album, Why Me? Why Not. Liam’s first solo album, As You Were, was a tremendous record full of great rock songs and cemented his place as being able to carry on without his brother Noel. It seems that this new album will be just as rocking as the first. Check out “Shockwave.”

Anticipated Albums: Slipknot- We Are Not Your Kind

On August 9th, Slipknot will be releasing their new album “We Are Not Your Kind.” The first single “Unsainted” was released today along with a video directed by the bands M. Shawn Crahan (aka Clow,n, aka #6). Guitarist Jim Root has stated about the upcoming album “This is most time we’ve had to write a record, and work stuff out together. One of my inspirations this time around was those artists that recorded full length albums – not just songs. While the industry is moving toward singles, Slipknot wanted to make an album experience, front to back.” Interestingly, the previously released song “All Out Life” is not on the album.

Track List:
01 – “Insert Coin”
02 – “Unsainted”
03 – “Birth Of The Cruel”
04 – “Death Because Of Death”
05 – “Nero Forte”
06 – “Critical Darling”
07 – “Liar’s Funeral”
08 – “Red Flag”
09 – “What’s Next”
10 – “Spiders”
11 – “Orphan”
12 – “My Pain”
13 – “Not Long For This World”
14 – “Solway Firth”

New Release: Cave In- Shake My Blood

mail
June 7th is only a few weeks away, and that is when we get the new (and final?) Cave In album Final Transmission. Today, they have released another new song entitled “Shake My Blood.” This new song is a pretty deep and heavy track. It also has a sort of Jupiter feel to it. Granted there have only been two songs released so far, this one and “All Illusion” but, I can already sense that this album is going to be one of the best albums of the year and be in constant rotation for a long time to come.

Anticipated Albums: Wear Your Wounds- Rust On The Gates Of Heaven

mail.jpg

I love side projects. Especially when they deviate from the style of music you’ve associated someone with for so long. Wear Your Wounds is one of my favorite side projects I’ve ever heard. Wear Your Wounds was created by Converge founder Jacob Bannon. Initially conceived as a solo project, it evolved into a five-piece band that often works with collaborating musicians. In 2017, the debut self titled double album was released followed closely by the even more experimental Dunedevil, which was also an accompaniment to Bannon’s abstract art book of the same name. Now, Wear Your Wounds, prepare to release their new album Rust on the Gates of Heaven (out July 12 via Deathwish Inc.).  The release marks the first time the official lineup of the band; Jacob Bannon (Converge), Mike McKenzie (The Red Chord, Stomach Earth, Unraveller, etc), Adam McGrath (Cave In, Nomad Stones, etc), Sean Martin (Twitching Tongues, ex-Hatebreed, ex-Kid Cudi), and Chris Maggio (ex-Trap Them, ex-Sleigh Bells, etc) have properly written and recorded together. It also features musicians Ben Chisholm (Chelsea Wolfe, White Horse) and Gared O’Donnell (Planes Mistaken For Stars, Hawks and Doves) collaborating throughout. Watch and or listen to the music video for the album’s eponymous first single now. Personally I can’t wait for this album to come out. So do yourself a favor and dive in to this great band and their work.

Cover Song: Stephen Brodsky & Marissa Nadler- (Guns N Roses)- Estranged

Cave In and Mutoid Man’s Stephen Brodsky is quite the busy guy. In addition to the two bands I just mentioned, he’s got a project with vocalist Marissa Nadler. Their collaborative album entitled Droneflower will be released April 26th via Sacred Bones Records. They have released a couple songs from the album. The first was an original song called “For The Sun,” which is quite a haunting introduction to the band. The second though is a cover of Guns N Roses’ “Estranged.” This is one of the best cover songs I’ve ever heard. “Estranged” happens to be my favorite GnR song of all time, so I was a tad skeptical before listening but, within seconds, I knew that this was amazing. Everything about this cover is perfect. It’s a totally different take on the GnR classic and it’s just beautiful.

Anticipated Albums: Cave In- Final Transmission

mail.jpg

On June 7th of this year (2019), Cave In will release a new and final album appropriately titled, Final Transmission. This album features the last recordings of the late Caleb Scofield. The first song released, “All Illusion,” is a Caleb composition that Steve had originally written lyrics for. But that changed not long after Caleb’s passing, when Adam went to visit Caleb’s wife, Jen, and their two kids, Desmond and Sydney. “Jen found some lyrics in one of Caleb’s journals,” Adam explains. “She was going to tear them out and give them to me, but I just took a picture because I wanted her to keep it. We used the lyrics for “All Illusion,” which is a song that really haunts me. I feel like it’s a weird message from Caleb sometimes.” And what a song it is. This for me is one of the, if not most anticipated albums of 2019. You can pre-order the album HERE.
