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.
New year, new music! Check out below the biggest titles coming out in January. We have a few Pop princesses making a come back, two awesomely original bands from Finland, some Australian skater dudes that I'm really enjoying, an American Hip-Hop trio is reuniting for their fourth studio album after going solo, and a few Rock legends reappear after a few years of silence.
Welcome everyone to November's Albums list, and while there are more than a handful on this list, we're not overly impressed with this month's releases. There is nothing that really jumps out at us here at Double R headquarters. So don't expect a review of any of these.
But if you're interested in some of these titles, click on the cover and you'll either find a pre-sale link or a previous release from the artist.
