Album Anticipation List/Calendar (Summer 2015)

I'm sure there's many I'm missing and may find myself editing in, in here. And a video could be made about this upcoming period of new records, as I recall thinking when I made the preview video a few months back, it may make sense to forget about a preview for the "year" or "season" but just every few months, etc.

Anyway, for now, this is a reasonably good list of many of the records I'm anticipating over the next few months.

Kaddisfly and The Dear Hunter are the Blue Chips of course. It feels like 2007 again, lol...maybe The River Empires will find it's way onto 1 of these lists as well 1 of these years.

June 30th

We’re elated to announce that we’ll be releasing a new album from The Velvet Teen this summer. They’re one of our favorite bands and as long-time followers of their music, this album has us the most excited of any to date — it’s an incredibly dynamic album and the perfect culmination of everything this band is truly great at (which, frankly, is a lot). If you’re a fan of bands on our roster like toe, Enemies, Braid, Crash of Rhinos and Prawn, then (and I can’t convey this enough) you’re going to love this band and this album. Can’t wait for you all to hear it.

The forthcoming album is titled All Is Illusory and will be released on Tuesday, June 30, 2015. All Is Illusory marks the band’s fourth album and is the long-awaited and elegant follow-up to 2006’s Cum Laude! that was recorded and co-produced by Steve Choi (Rx Bandits, Peace’d Out) and Roger Camero (No Motiv, Peace’d Out). From its gorgeous, swirling electronics to its harder, angular, ’90s-leaning flourishes of grunge, indie and emo, All Is Illusory is a welcome return for a band whose varied influences are still very much intact after its short silence.

If you’re able to, be sure to see the band on their current west coast tour around SXSW!
