Week in retrospect - Sunday August 3rd

Posted by PP on 03/08/08


This week saw The Killers and U2 announce new albums for November, but even more significantly, rumours started solidifying around AC/DC's long-awaited new album - now slated for an October release. Cold, suitably for their name, also announced a new release for winter 2009.

In the music front, Norma Jean is now streaming their highly anticipated new album "The Anti-Mother" in its entirety. Ditto Walls Of Jericho. Hawthorne Heights seems to be going even more mainstream, so if you're not into that, you can always check out the new tracks by The Sound Of Animals Fighting, Trivium, and Ligeia.

The always weird HORSE The Band finally found a new drummer, but even their keyboardist's sect announcement pales in strangeness to Geoff Rickley (Thursday) and Daryl Palumbo's (Glassjaw) announcement of a grindcore side project United Nations. On a slightly softer side, Mark Hoppus seems really excited about New Found Glory's upcoming new album.

And in case you missed them, here's a summary of articles posted on the site in the past week.
