New Release Round-Up 06-29-15

New Releases Mon 29 Jun 

NEIL YOUNG + PROMISE OF THE REAL - The Monsanto Years - Reprise
Neil Young + Promise Of The Real have joined forces and release a new studio album, entitled The Monsanto Years via Reprise Records. For this guitar-centric, full steam-ahead and highly-charged rock album, Young is joined by Promise of the Real, an LA-based rock band fronted by Lukas Nelson (vocals/guitar), along with Micah Nelson (guitar, vocals), Anthony Logerfo (drums), Corey McCormick (bass) and Tato Melgar (percussion).

REFUSED - Freedom - Epitaph
Refused came to an end in front of 50 kids at a basement show in a Virginia college town in 1998, just as their release of the same year, The Shape of Punk to Come, was taking its first steps toward becoming an acknowledged classic and a massive influence on a generation of bands. Refused Are Fucking Dead! became the slogan, as kids discovered Shape and its breakout track New Noise only to find their new heroes disbanded. Refused are f***ing alive! After a 2012 invitation to reform for the Coachella festival, Refused followed its first shows in 15 years with a triumphant tour, as every kid who had discovered them after death came out to see them reborn. Freedom is the first album in almost 20 years, on Epitaph/Burning Heart, the label that released The Shape of Punk to Come all those years ago. 

JOY WILLIAMS - Venus - Sony
Many know Joy Williams as one half of the four-time Grammy-winning folk-rock duo The Civil Wars. Until their 2012 hiatus (and eventual break up in August 2014) the singer-songstress with her long sea witch hair and Mona Lisa half-smile rarely revealed herself, except through the duo s bruising and stark lyrics of romantic conflations and doomed intimacies. On Venus she changes all that. No longer content to just conjure the antique grace of some mythic, bygone world, Williams was intent to actually pierce the veil of metaphor and an imagined history and tell a more honest, human story of one woman's journey out of darkness.

SENSES FAIL - Pull The Thorns From Your Heart - Pure Noise
Pull The Thorns From Your Heart is the intense & brutally honest 6th album from boundary-pushing New Jersey punk outfit Senses Fail.
