#NewMusicFriday: The Offspring, London Grammar, Bob Evans  and more out now!

It's #NewMusicFriday! Here's what's out this week!

One of the best-selling punk rock bands of all time, The Offspring releases their first new album in almost a decade, Let The Bad Times Roll. The new music was written and recorded over the course of the last several years at various locations including the band’s Huntington Beach, California studio. The album is the band’s third time working in collaboration with legendary rock producer Bob Rock. 

English indie pop band London Grammar releases their long-awaited third studio album Californian Soil. The 12 track album includes the already released singles ‘Baby It’s You’, ‘Lose Your Head’, ‘How Does It Feel’ and ‘Californian Soil’. Both of their previous albums have charted in the ARIA Top Three.

Bob Evans is the ARIA-winning alter ego of Jebediah frontman Kevin Mitchell who has graced the Australian music scene for more than two decades and has written some of the country’s most beloved songs. Now, almost five years after his last record he releases sixth studio album Tomorrowland. It features already released singles ‘Born Yesterday’ and ‘Concrete Heart’. 

After three years, one-million concert tickets sold across five continents and a Grammy Award, the American rock band Greta Van Fleet releases its second album, The Battle at Garden's Gate. The 12 album track includes the already released singles ‘My Way, Soon’, ‘Age of Machine’, ‘Heat Above’, and ‘Broken Bells’. 

American rock band Escape the Fate release their seventh studio album Chemical Warfare. Produced by John Feldmann (5 Seconds of Summer, The Used) and the band's gutarist ‘Thrasher’, the album delivers an arsenal of driving bangers and melodic ballads.

Nearly two decades into her storied career, American singer and songwriter, nine-time Grammy-winning singer-songwriter, pianist Norah Jones delivers her first full live album Till We Meet Again. The 14-track collection spans global performances across the U.S., France, Italy, Brazil, and Argentina between 2017-2019. 

The legendary Beatle Paul McCartney releases McCartney III Imagined. The album is a set of remixes and reinterpretations of his 2020 LP McCartney III that features Beck, St Vincent, Damon Albarn, Blood Orange, Josh Homme and more. 

American country music singer and songwriter Eric Church releases the first part of the triple album Heart & Soul. The album has been split into three separate parts: Heart (released on April 16, 2021), & (released on April 20, 2021) and Soul (released on April 23, 2021). It will later be available as one piece.

Violence Unimagined. The title tells you everything you need to know about American Metal band's Cannibal Corpse's fifteenth studio album. It is their first album in nearly four years. Comprised of eleven tracks, it is state of the art death metal played with passion and breathless precision, making for another flawless addition to what is inarguably one of the premier catalogues the genre has thrown up.
