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.
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.
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.
Ok, I have to be honest, this list of the albums coming out in August might not be 100% crammed with music we love, but we can't just publish metalcore and Slipknot, right?... RIGHT??!!
Regardless if you love Pop, Metal, Indie Folk or Hiphop, we are actually VERY excited about some of these titles! See below the full and undiscriminating list of albums we all need to keep an eye out for in August.
