The annual Record Store Day is right around the corner (April 20th) and bands left and right are preparing special releases for the special day. Though the full list of planned Record Store Day releases has not been released yet, I have found a few announced releases that some of you may be interested in.
An’ lemme jus’ say: Fuck December 21st in it’s ass. Ain’t no ‘pocalypse, mutha’ fuckas.
Man, there were way to many good albums released this year. I listened to as many as I could but there were some that I just couldn’t get to. There are also some that I listened to, just not enough for them to make my final list. I can’t let this slide, however and I want to give a shout out to new releases by Marty Friedman, The Mars Volta, Birds In Row, Code Orange Kids, Downfall Of Gaia and Krallice. I really wish I could have settled down to check these albums out in full, but I just couldn’t get down to do it.
Before we get to my actual list I would like to thank each and every one of you readers. Without you, I honestly probably would have given this up a long time ago. Sure, on this site I give my opinion on music, but it is really you guys/gals that count. I don’t know how I could repay you all for visiting American Aftermath these past two years. You have really made it worth while. Even the haters who talked shit, I appreciate you fucks also.
Preceding their massive tour with Coheed and Cambria, Between the Buried and Me and Russian Circles will make three stops in East Coast Canada. If there are any Canadian’s that read American Aftermath, I would advise you to drive your ass to one of these shows. Check out the three tour dates below and GO MAN GO.
One of the most highly anticipated tours would be the upcoming Coheed and Cambria headlining tour with Between the Buried and Me and Russian Circles. After the tour was rumored earlier this year I became extremely excited. Possibly too excited. Coheed and Cambria finally took to their Facebook to announce the full touring schedule. The tour will be in support of the band’s upcoming record The Afterman: Descension, which will be released on February 5th. Check out the dates below!!!
