Unite music whores...what are you looking forward to?

CONFIRMED/'PRETTY MUCH' DEFINATES

"Land Of The Freaks" by Freak Kitchen

"???" by Death Cab For Cutie

"Acoustic EP" by Strike Anywhere (Reworking parts of old songs into new acoustic songs...should be boss)

"???" by The Postal Service

"???" by Death By Stereo

"???" by Pulley

"???" by Jack's Mannequin

"Fortress" by Protest The Hero

"???" by Pennywise

"???" by Alkaline Trio

"???" by Zero To Sixty

"Lucky" by Nada Surf

"???" by Paint It Black (Originally meant to be out this year...doesn't look likely)

"???" by Rise Against

"???" by LaGrecia

"The Bedlam In Goliath" by Mars Volta

"???" by Iron Orchestra

"???" by Blackpool Lights

"???" by Chris Walla

MAYBE'S

"???" by The Lawrence Arms

"???" by Hot Water Music

SHOWS (Only first two 'definates'):

Reel Big Fish (w/Streetlight Manifesto)

Jimmy Eat World

Hundred Reasons

Plain White T's

There's gonna be a shitload of stuff I find, or have forgotten/don't know about. But still. Could be a good year for punk-rock. DBS, with basically their original line-up. Zero To Sixty have Denis Buckley and Mr Precision from 88 Fingers Louie, and the demo tunes are shit hot, I'm expecting something great. New Pulley will be great. New Protest will be swank. Alk3 always deliver. Pennywise/Rise Against should be fun too. Paint It Black will melt my face off. I love ANYTHING Dan Yemin touches. Lifetime, Armalite, Kid Dynamite, Paint It Black. His vocal work is amazing, and he only gets to showcase it in PIB.

Then there's Death Cab...who have 6 songs done. I seriously cannot wait for that to drop. I'm hoping The Postal Service album makes it out by the end of the next year. Hopefully Chris Walla gets his album back from US customs or whatever, and can put it out. His solo stuff on his site (Free downloads) is really good, very much an old, but better, DCFC vibe to it.

Freak Kitchen. "Organic" was a little step backwards on "Move", but was still a stupidly fun, album, and I cannot wait for the new one.

Strike Anywhere's acoustic sessions have been great, this announcement has me so giddy. Great/original idea.

Jack's Mannequin I'm a little scared about. The first album was SO-SO good. "Katie" is a great song. But "Cellular Phone" is fucking shite. Here's to hoping it might be the "La La Lie" of the album, or is cut all together.

Hmm, let's see...

Foxy Shazam! - Introducing... Foxy

The Mars Volta - The Bedlam In Goliath

10 Years - Division

Goldfrapp - Seventh Tree

The Raveonettes - Lust, Lust, Lust

And hopefully the follow-up to NIN's Year Zero will be out next year. There's also speculation about a Greatest Hits album being put out by Interscope.

The Cure has a new double album coming out next year, which could be very good. I'm looking forward to that.

Gorgeous Frankenstein is supposed to be re-recording their album, probably with new tracks added, with a new singer after their tour with Danzig is done, so I'm pretty stoked on that.

The Misfits have been in wait for a new album for a couple years now. April is the tentative date... but with Jerry Only running the show, February 2010 sounds more realistic.

Blitzkid is supposedly heading into the studio in a few months to re-record some of their favorite original songs for a new album. I wish more bands would do that, because the low quality of some of the best songs really makes me a sad guy. There's no shame in coming back with something that was good years ago, but now with the added bonus of more money and better production... plus, you already have the songs written. It's just a matter of recording them. Easy money.

As far as immediately goes... Sebastian Bach's new album comes out on the 20th. All hail the Bach.

The only thing I can think of off the top of my head is Swift & Changeable by Ghostface Killah & MF Doom. However, Ghost's been talking about that and saying the release date was pushed back since Fishscale came out a year and a half ago.

I am looking forward to new albums by Mobile and Panic at the Disco. Also if the rumors are true a new Three Days Grace album.

I'll second Gabriel by saying it's all about the Bach in a few weeks. As for next year,

Wednesday 13 - Skeletons

Metallica - Untitled

Misfits - Untitled (>.>)

GNR - Chinese Democracy (>.>x2)

I also think Motley Crue and Alice Cooper are working on new albums, don't know when they're due out though. I don't have much luck when it comes to bands I like releasing new albums, with Wednesday 13 being the only cert out of all 6 bands mentioned.

As for shows, theres Download which I go to every year, also there's Megadeth and Velvet Revolver at some point next year which I'm looking forward to, and I hope to see Wednesday and The Misfits again, having seen them both within the last 2 months.

I might go to Download next year, for the first time since its started. As for CD's, I never follow what comes out, to be honest, so I have no idea.

Well this last year I've been pulling together a CD collection from the last few years rather than buying any "new" albums. For example I've purchased Mogwai's last two, The Knife, another Royksopp, a couple of Airs, a couple of Boards Of Canada...A year of chillout.

This coming year I think I'll contiue to school myself on stuff I've missed over the years although this new Postal Service album looks intruiging.

I hope to God Evanescence bring out a new album this year. It's unlikely, yes, as they're bound to put loads of work into it, but I need new Ev songs.

Either way, I happily await the day Good Enough reaches number 1.

New Shinedown and Black Stone Cherry albums, both scheduled for Spring '08 I believe, and I also believe that there may be a new Exies album at some point then, so I'll get that one too.

New Bootsy Collins album in Spring, which is going to be absolutely brilliant, and apparently the core members of Praxis are working on a SunnO)))-influenced album, so if that ever sees the light of day, I'm definitely picking that up. And new Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, which I can't possibly miss. Other than that, I don't really know of anything coming out.

CD's

Confirmed:

Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds (~!) - "Dig, Lazerus, Dig!" (March) (Said to sound like the "Grinderman" CD)

Mike Doughty - "Golden Delicious" (February)

Weezer - ??? (April)

Pretty much going to happen:

Nine Inch Nails - ??? (NIN and Saul Williams are rumored to do a tour in July of 08...NIN touring in support of YZ part 2 maybe?)

The Offspring - ???

Rammstein - ???

Alkaline Trio - ??? (I heard a new song at Warped Tour this year...it was called "In Vain" and it was fucking phenomenal.)

Green Day - ???

Metallica - ???

Pennywise - ???

Wishful Thinking:

The Misfits - ??? (It could happen. Hopefully.)

David Bowie? Maybe? Please?

Shows:

Streetlight Manifesto/Suburban Legends - January 9th

Hopefully NIN/Saul will tour.

I plan to see shows of all the bands I've listed above...except Nick "Not touring the US in support of the new CD" Cave. :angry::(

I forgot about Cradle of Filth. Stupid me.

They're releasing a Deluxe Edition of Thornography at the end of January. Wikipedia has the following songs confirmed to be added...

"Murder in the Thirst"

"The Snake-Eyed And The Venomous"

"HW2" (Samhain cover)

"Courting Baphomet"

"Stay" (Shakespears Sister cover)

"Devil to the Metal"

"(She's) The Mother of Tears" (from the The Mother of Tears soundtrack) (unconfirmed)

Personally, I'd rather have them release an EP with those tracks on it... or add a couple more tracks and release an album of stuff that didn't make the cut for the recent CDs, or were recorded for other purposes, such as soundtracks, or simply just for shits and giggles.

Off the top of my head, I only know of the new Gengis Tron and Belphegor discs in early '08 and a Korpiklaani release "somewhere down the line". Meshuggah are supposed to be releasing a new album as well, but I haven't heard any news on it for a while. It was supposed to come out this fall, but seems to have been postponed without much fuss.

On a side note, where the hell is my Pelican DVD >:/

NEW GENGHIS TRON.

Also. Maybe Massive Attack will have their new album next year. Maybe. There's also new Eagles of Death Metal, Morrissey, Portishead, Rakim, Muse, and Wolf Parade albums for next year as well.

Hopefully, Bonnaroo 08 will kill as well. I'm really hoping Muse are one of the headliners, they're one of the few "huge" names that hasn't headlined one of the 2 major U.S. festivals yet. And of course, like everyone, I'm hoping they bring back Radiohead since they're that good.

Speaking of DVDs, I'm looking for the eventual release of a Dillinger Escape Plan DVD that they still owe Relapse. I'm crossing my fingers for a Nine Inch Nails DVD chronicling the Year Zero tour. Also, if it ever happens, the Tool DVDs (Vicarious, Lateralus tour, etc.)

It's already out, but I DESPERATELY want the "Heima" DVD from Sigur Rós. The stills on the website look absolutely mind-blowing.

New Weezer album out April 22, apparently. Don't know much about what else is coming out.

AC/DC playing Download. I'll go to that.

Presumably Chinese Democracy and Detox coming out in the same week too.

I'm just praying that Detox comes out in '08 (I still consider it unlikely), but if it comes, after these eight years that Dr. Dre has worked on it there's no way it can match up to the expectations. Logically thinking, it ain't coming - Dre stated that he's now working on Eminem's new album for a couple of months, so that's probably coming next year... and I don't see Aftermath releasing two cd's as big as Detox and Em's new one within a range of a year. Then again, they did it with 2001 and Marshall Mathers LP so you never know.
