blue october any man in america

Blue October announce the release of their sixth full-length studio album, "Any Man In America", on August 16, 2011.

The album will be thirteen new songs that tell a cathartic tale of heartbreak and healing through unbridled lyrical honesty, anthemic modern rock hooks, and melodic soundscapes.

The first single off of the album, "The Chills", will be available for digital download on May 31st.

Those of you that have heard "The Chills" on the radio or caught live performances of "Feel Again" and "The Follow Through" on the Acoustic Tour know that this is going to be another amazing album from the band.

Blue October will support the album with a national tour kicking off on August 17th 2011.

Matthew Mayfield is an American singer-songwriter from Birmingham, Alabama. Former lead singer of alternative rock band Moses Mayfield, Matthew has moved on to a promising solo career.

After releasing a bunch of very interesting EPs, has debuted last month with his first full-length solo record,"Now You're Free". With this album being the culmination of his previous works, Mayfield has chosen some of his best songs over the past couple of years and paired them with newly written pieces.

The album, according to Matthew, is "everything I want it to be. Honest, anthemic and diverse. The songs are full of hope, which in some ways is very new to me".

INCUBUS, If Not Now, When? Wednesday, 25 May 2011 15:24 by madseason

Here's the cover of the new album from Incubus, scheduled to be released on July 12, 2011 on Epic Records. From the press release:

Multi-platinum rockers Incubus have re-engaged renowned producer Brendan O'Brien (Pearl Jam, Bruce Springsteen, Audioslave, Anberlin) to produce the band's sixth studio album, "If Not Now, When?".

The highly anticipated new album features lead single "Adolescents", an inimitable showcase of the band's frenetic rock roots. Delving further into the album, tracks like "Promises, Promises" and "Friends & Lovers" reveal new levels of elegance, space and psychedelia in the band's ever evolving sound.

"By about three songs into the writing process, I think we began to understand that we were unearthing something new," explains Brandon Boyd about the new album. "If Not Now, When?" is our unabashed, romantic, lush, sonic love letter to the world. It's darker, slower, more rich, more refined, and more involved than anything Incubus has birthed to date."
