Hard rock fans, buy this “Red Dragon” album by Room 333, which is compared to “La Gargola” by Chevelle! https://itunes.apple.com/ca/album/red-dragon/id917967693

Here’s Halestorm’s 3rd full length album “Into The Wild Life” streaming for free. Release date on iTunes April 14th

^^All of these 5 songs are on the album to be released 1 week from today, that’s 5/15 songs.

Tell me this isn’t hilarious! Well it’s subjective I guess, but I think I just peed a bit.

I’ll never understand the attraction to streaming music?

Big Wreck “Hey Mama” live

For me the “Undertow” album by Tool is one of those albums I just give a pass to. Most groups I like have at least a few songs I just give a glance & move on. I find this song for me is very over rated, but that’s just me.

Her’s what I know so far this year. In January “Smashing Pumpkins” released “Monuments to an Elegy”

Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds was released in March.

Halestorm’s 3rd album will be released on April 14th.

Muse release in June

Mark Tremonti went into the studio & ended up recording 2 albums totally separate albums. We’ll at least see one of them released this year “Cauterized”

I’m assuming “Into Eternity” & “Third Ion” will each release an album this year. Both are Regina based bands.

Possibly a new Tool album as well. I’ve heard they’re in the studio?

Possibly a “Stone Temple Pilots” full album with Chester Bennington of Linkin Park on vocals. I think they have finished recording the album so I assume it will be out this year. This is from the 5 song EP they recorded with Chester.

“System of a Down” tour started last night.

My weekend was a 4 day weekend. We stayed here. Kim’s parents came to Regina but her brother had to work so we didn’t get a chance to see him. My father was ill this weekend & couldn’t make it for Easter supper on Sunday. I mostly sat on the couch. The Blue Jays regular season started yesterday & they won in New York. That doesn’t happen very often. They’re 1-0 right now but still 161 games to go. New baseball commissioner who’s added a few rules to speed up the game & maybe more to increase the offense? We had some friends with a new baby pop in for a visit who live over sea from Canada great to see them & Logan was the first child that didn’t immediately wonder why I have an eye patch. He didn’t back off, get scared or anything like that. He just wanted to suck on his sock. Weekend was pretty tame here

Songs I like. “The Darkness” I have the current 2 “Darius Rucker” albums & I like them, I was a HUGE “Hootie & The Blowfish” fan back in the day. So I’m rockin’ the unitard! WARNING IT’S HARD TO FIND ANYTHING BY THEM WITHOUT LANGUAGE!

I only have the first album & their greatest hits album. The have 2 singles from their 5th studio album on iTunes now for pre-order
