When we first started comprising this list, we had over 20 albums reported to be coming out in May. But as we looked into each release, more than a few had been pushed back, leaving us with 11 confirmed and 2 TBA.
We should get used to this I suppose, since nothing is going to change anytime soon.
Unfortunately due to the current COVID-19 crisis, some album releases have been pushed back, mainly because of manufacture and logistical problems. But some musicians have decided that we fans, who are locked away at home and slowly going insane, need some new tunes to keep our spirits high.
So, we at Ronon's Reviews salute these amazing artists!
The Coronavirus strikes again!
No, COVID-19 hasn't taken away any famous actor/ress or musician, but potentially one of the biggest music festivals in the world, Coachella. Hot on the heels of South by Southwest's cancelation and the reports of confirmed cases of the virus in the Coachella Valley (where the festival is held), the massive event was postponed until October.
Happy almost March! Boy, do we have a treat in store for you. We have decided to do something a little different from now on for this segment. Instead of just telling you the basic info such as release date, title, artist, genre, video and label, now we have relevant quotes from your favourite musicians, fun facts about the album, features, tour dates and whatever is interesting about the record coming out next month. Also the graphics are all jazzed up, same as the home page. If you haven't had a look there, let us know what you think - we're pretty proud of it!
Let's be honest, 2019 was an epic year for albums, we had Slipknot's absolute monster We Are Not Your Kind, then there was Tool's triumphant return Fear Inoculum and all the other amazing releases in between. It made me wonder how 2020 could ever top its predecessor, and after scouring the internet for both fact and plausible rumour, I've compiled this list which is a mixture of confirmed and hopeful records from bands who will or should be dropping something soon.
