There’s definitely some excitement in the air around the new releases this week. The first is likely because pop-punk juggernauts Fall Out Boy are back with their first new album in a whole bunch of years. The second is because songwriter wunderkind Lana Del Rey has a new album out (even though she dropped like, three last year). We also have the latest from New Jersey punk veterans The Bouncing Souls. You should also be stoked for the soulful new one from Wilder Woods, the catchy pop-rock of Phoneboy, and a new EP from Dazy.
After slapping back at some ignorant haters online, MammothWVH capped the week by releasing a blistering new single from his next album. The National dropped the third track from their next album, as did Brian Dunne. We have a ska-tastic new track from Devon Kay and the Solutions, and another beautiful one from Alma Mater. Australian band Pretty Bleak continue their new wave glory with their latest jam, and if you’re a Replacements fan, be sure to check out Tommy Stinson‘s new Cowboys in the Campfire song.
The Who‘s Pete Townshend has released his first solo song in decades to raise money for a good cause. Grouplove have their first new songs in a long while, and we’ve got one more lost track from Linking Park. Some of the other artists returning with new music this week are Cade Hoppe, Eighty Ninety, Geese, Hippo Campus, Fuzzle and Noel Gallagher & the High Flying Birds.
