New & Noteworthy is a weekly column in which we highlight some of the newest rock and metal releases coming out each week. This week brings new music from Fallujah, and more. You can check out the last New & Noteworthy here, and the latest sales numbers in Metal By Numbers. Be sure to follow us on Spotify to get this month’s New & Noteworthy Playlist, updated every Friday with the newest metal releases.
Fortunately this was a bit of a shorter week for me. By the time this is out I will be down in Raleigh, NC visiting friends. We will be hitting the Experience Hendrix tour. Mustaine, Satch, Dweezil Zappa, and Eric Johnson all touring and playing Hendrix songs together. Yes please.
