2015 was a very successful year in music. There are a lot of new bands and many bands released new
albums. This doesn't mean that 2016 can't be atleast just as awesome! A lot of new albums and new tours have been announced and it's only getting bigger. Here are the 10 albums we are looking forward to the most.
10. The Word Alive released their last album 2014 and toured endlessly with it. Now they revealed
that they are working on their fourth studio album. “Dark Matter” is set to be released on March 18th.
They already have plans for a North America Tour, this tour is called the 'Dark Matter' tour and with a little bit of luck, this tour will also make it's way to Europe. They also revealed two special guests 'Out Came The Wolves' and 'Fit For A King'. Another special guest will be revealed soon.
9. It’s been a while now since Danny Worsnop left Asking Alexandria (January 2015). Following their
2013 album “from Death to Destiny” Asking Alexandria is now releasing their fifth studio album
“The Black” in March this year. Ben Bruce says it was a lot more fun recording the new album
and they went back to their roots. If you want, you can look at the artwork of the album
8. Since Sum 41’s great APMA’s performance in 2015 and two small clips of new Sum 41 songs the
band’s frontman Deryck Whibley announced that the album is nearing completion.
Now that they are complete and had their official comeback last year they are headlining the Kerrang! Tour 2016. Besides that they will be doing several tour dates in mainland Europe.
7. Memphis May Fire has released a deluxe edition from their album ‘Unconditional’ last year.
However Rise Records posted on Facebook that the band will release a new album this year.
6. It has been quiet around ‘Of Mice and Men’ although they released an expanded version of their
last album from 2014, “Restoring Force”. However, we did receive some bad news about their frontman Austin
Carlile who was hospitalized. But now, as well as Memphis May Fire, Rise Records announced that ‘Of
Mice and Men’ will release an album this year!
5. Tonight Alive has already released two tracks of their new Album “Limitless”. You can watch the
music video for the song “Human Interaction” and listen to the audio of “To Be Fierce” on YouTube.
And if you want you can already pre-order the album, it’s scheduled to be released March 4th.
4. After the departure from Tyler Acord, Issues still have been working with him on the new album.
They already announced their own headliner tour in Europe. However, their new album still has no name.
Although ISSUES tweeted something suspicious a while ago. We don’t know if #HeadSpace2k16 is the
title of their new album, or of a song. Time will tell!
3. This band released, like Of Mice & Men, a deluxe edition of their album “The Resistance” this
year. In the same post where new Of Mice & Men material was being teased,
there was also being announced that Crown The Empire will also bring us new music this year.
2. “Death Of A Bachelor” is Panic! At The Disco’s fifth studio album. After the official departure of drummer Spencer Smith, Brendon Urie continued as the only member of the band. Six songs (Hallelujah, Victorious, Death of a
Bachelor, Emperor’s New clothes, LA Devotee and Don’t Threaten Me With A Good Time) along with
three music videos have already been released. And you can already pre-order the album. ‘Death of A
Bachelor' will be released on January 15th. (This is out now, buy it, stream it, listen to it over & over)
1. It’s been a while since Pierce The Veil released an album. But Fearless Records shared a picture
with the releases of bands on their roster for this year, and guess who was on that list? Pierce The
Veil! Will this be the year in which they release their follow up album to “Collide with the Sky”?
We couldn't be more psyched. Better make it happen this year, boys!
