As we close out on the first quarter of the year, the Music Gods have blessed us with a ton of new music today.
Fall Out Boy: So Much (for) Stardust
An Obligatory Pete Wentz Thank You to Chicago’s very own Fall Out Boy for releasing their eighth studio album, So Much (for) Stardust. You heard the debut single, “Love From the Other Side” with Brian & Justin not once, not twice, but three times in a row when it first came out. Now you can listen to the full album. Fall Out Boy kicks off their world tour at Wrigley Field on June 21.
Depeche Mode: Memento Mori
Alternative legends Depeche Mode dropped their first album in six years today with the release of Memento Mori. The band sounds as good as they ever have with the release of “Ghosts Again”, the album’s premier single. You can see Depeche Mode at the United Center on April 5 and November 13.
Linkin Park: Fighting Myself
Linkin Park have once again dug into their archives with the upcoming 20th anniversary of Meteora and have pulled out another unreleased song. “Fighting Myself” comes from the Linkin Park archives and it sounds incredible. The track is built from an unused Chester Bennington vocal stem, with new rap verses by Mike Shinoda.
Lana Del Rey: Did You Know That There’s a Tunnel Under Ocean Blvd
The polarizing Lana Del Rey is back with a new album, her first since releasing two LP’s in 2021. Her signature, sultry tone is back once again as Del Rey returns to vintage form with this gut-wrenching, 16-track release.
Meg Myers: TZIA
For the first time since 2018’s “Take Me to the Disco”, Meg Myers is back with a full length album. The eclectic frontwoman is best known for her take on Kate Bush’s “Running Up That Hill”, but Myers proved again with this record that her original output is just as strong. Meg Myers will be at Park West on April 26.
Bouncing Souls: Ten Stories High
One of the finest Northeast punk bands to ever exist, the Bouncing Souls are back with a new record, the 12th of their prestigious career. The boys will be back in town on May 11 at the Metro alongside Swingin’ Utters and the perennially underrated Samiam.
