This is such an exciting time of year for new music. Artists drop new albums and then hit the road to support their efforts. Which not only means new music, but chances are that your favorite bands are out on tour and youll have a shot to see them live.
Lets get to it. Weve added five new tunes to the KRRO roster this week from three proven bands that you know and a pair you might not, yet.
The first is from Alter Bridge. Its the follow-up to, Addicted To Pain. The new cut is the lead track of their Fortress album. Cry Of Achilles is a six and a half minute, guitar-driven song that features solos from both front man, Myles Kennedy as well as guitarist, Mark Tremonti.
The Black Keys are back with a new album set for a May 13 th release entitled, Turn Blue. The song we added from that forthcoming record is, Fever. The song and the video can be rather hypnotic, but in a good way. This song is definitely different from their previous work. The Black Keys pride themselves on never making the same record twice. Each of their eight albums have their own signature sound.
How about some new Hellyeah? We say, hell yes! The super-group consisting of members from Mudvayne and Pantera have a new album available June 10 th . The title track, Sangre Por Sangre (Blood For Blood) is the song you will crank up to eleven. Its exactly the hard-driving , head-banging tune you have come to expect from these guys.
The first time I heard Come With Me Now from the Kongos, I was hooked. Its far from your typical rock song, but it will certainly have you boppin your head and tapping your toes to this catchy tune. Its not every day you hear a good song with an accordion. This is the exception.
The final new cut youll hear on the KRRO this week is from another relatively unknown band, Royal Blood. Theyre a British duo who has been compared to the likes of The White stripes, Black Keys and even Led Zeppelin. Those are some lofty comparisons, but this band is off to a great start with Out Of The Black screaming up the American rock charts.
