Lots of great new albums are dropping today to get us rockin’ through the weekend! All of these albums and more are now streaming on Apple Music and Spotify.
The Lunar Injection Kool Aid Eclipse Conspiracy – Rob Zombie
Per Consequence of Sound:
With an impressive 17 tracks, Zombie decided not to mess with a winning formula. The new effort continues with the same lineup as the previous two albums (2013’s Venomous Rat Regeneration Vendor and 2016’s The Electric Warlock Acid Witch Satanic Orgy Celebration Dispenser): Zombie on vocals, John 5 on guitar, Piggy D on bass, and Ginger Fish on drums. It also has the same producer as the previous album, the mysteriously named Zeuss (Queensrÿche, Hatebreed, Municipal Waste). The result is exactly what you would expect from Zombie: a well-produced and expertly written spooky, groovy, heavy, horror-inspired rock album with some added surprises.
This Is This – Grouplove
Following up Healer, and Big Mess in 2016, This Is This is a rhapsodic entry into where Grouplove landed, following a year when everything was turned inside out. Exploring desolation, isolation, and a collective confusion.
Long Live Rock (single) Halestorm
Halestorm have released a ferocious version of The Who‘s classic Long Love Rock. The song is taken from the upcoming film Long Live Rock… Celebrate The Chaos, due for release on March 12. “Long Live Rock is so fun to play and an anthem for this genre, by one of the greatest rock bands of all time, The Who”, Halestorm’s Lzzy Hale tells Classic Rock.
Follow You (single) Imagine Dragons
In a Twitter post, Dan Reynolds of Imagine Dragons revealed the inspiration behind the song;“‘Follow You’ is a song about loyalty and love. Loving somebody is an incredibly imperfect process. It isn’t always romantic or pretty. Sometimes it can be incredibly painful. Aja taught me self-love and showed me what it meant to truly accept someone without any expectations. She was endlessly patient with me. She didn’t need me. She even taught me that I didn’t need her. But we loved each other and at the end of our 7 month separation a couple years back, we chose to remarry and stay together. I proposed again and she said yes, again. Not every relationship works out this way, but it did for us. Not everyone needs a relationship. It isn’t the happy ending – it is a choice that works for some. And Aja and I re-chose it after experiencing life without each other. I wrote ‘Follow You’ after we got back together. I wanted it to represent a love that is realistic. One where love isn’t perfect, but it endures.”
