It seems like most of my all-time favorite bands are coming out with new cds this month! Can I get a "hallelujah" for new music!
9.1.09. Chevelle - Sci Fi Crimes. Chevelle is quickly becoming my numero uno favorite band. Right now that title is held strong by Linkin Park but their last CD - Minutes to Midnight - has put quite a damper on my fire for them; granted the CD gets better every time I listen to it, I can't help but skip over Chester's ballads. Blech. Back to Chevelle. Their CDs are consistently good and Sci Fi crimes doesn't disappoint. It rocks my socks off. My favorite song on their new CD is This Circus followed closely by their single Jars.
9.22.09. Three Days Grace - Life Starts NowAgain, a consistently great band. Each CD is just as good, if not better, than the previous one.
9.29.09. Paramore - Brand New EyesParamore! My newest fave! I've listened to their first two CDs about one million times. Each. And Hailey Williams is who I'd like to be for a day so it only makes sense I'm looking forward to their newest release. Gimme gimme gimme!
Also 9.29.09. Breaking Benjamin - Dear Agony
I feel like a broken record saying this, but again, a consistently good band. I heart all their previous CDs.
Last but certainly not least, in fact, most anticipated, is Chester Bennington of Linkin Park's solo album: Dead by Sunrise. Technically doesn't come out til October 13th, but that's close enough to September, no? I'm a little worried it's going to be full of ballads like Minutes to Midnight...but we shall see. If it's more of his old school stuff than I'll be a happy girl. Don't be fooled by my sweet exterior, I'm an angel of rock at heart :)
