There’s nothing better than some noisy, angst-ridden, rebellion inspiring rock ‘n roll to get the party started! Kick your week off right with these new rock releases.
Here’s a wrap up of all the rock released this week.
Liam Gallagher | “Shockwave”
Liam Gallagher has recently been teasing a new album and this week he has released the first single “Shockwave”, it’s a timeless rocker with big riffs and plenty of the swagger and attitude we’ve come to expect from the former Oasis singer.
Silversun Pickups | “It Doesn’t Matter Why”
Silversun Pickups have just dropped a new album called Widows Weeds. The 10-track collection may have been a few years in the making, but one listen to the luscious, string heavy, alt-rock production with driving guitars and soaring vocals will have you convinced it was time well spent. Widows Weeds is out now
The Tea Party | “Way Way Down”
Some dark southern rock featuring a harmonica, a tambourine and a nod to Led Zeppelin that takes a decidedly Tea Party turn in the bridge that really ties it all together. A whole new album from the Canadian trio is in the works, single “Way Way Down” is out now, and they have just announced an Australian tour, details here.
Foals | “In Degrees” (from Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost)
“In Degrees” is the latest music video from the Foals’ vibrant, electro leaning album, Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost Part One which was released earlier this year, and as the title suggests a follow up is expected to land later this year.
Foals have hinted that the next installment will be "heavier" with "more guitars", describing it as a: “Rock record with a capital R,” to Clash Magazine.
The Black Keys | “Go”
The Black Keys new album, Let’s Rock! is due out June 28 and in anticipation, the duo have so far released three singles, “Lo Hi”, “Eagle Birds” and “Go.” The latter arrived with this self-parodying music video that humorously sends them to “next level mediation” to end their five-year hiatus. An hallucinogenic-inspired shared epiphany sees them rekindle their relationship and get back to the music.
Dinosaur Pileup | “Thrash Metal Cassette”
UK trio, Dinosaur Pileup have just released their fourth album, the full throttle, Celebrity Mansions. It’s face-paced, guitar driven, unapologetically melodic punk with maximum attitude that should be turned up to 11.
