Some new projects from old rockers…

Everyone knows that Van Halen is back, debuting at #2 on the Billboard charts last week with A Different Kind of Truth. Here are a few other hard rockers from back in the day that are still out there recording and touring…

  • Tracii Guns of L.A. Guns fame has a new project called League of Gentlemen. There is a short sample of the song “Feathers in a Hurricane” posted on Tracii’s Tumblr. So short there’s really no way to form an opinion one way or the other.
  • Bang Tango is back, and their new album, Pistol Whipped in the Bible Belt (review coming eventually), sounds nothing like the pop metal they were putting out in the 1980s. It’s heavy, dark, and all sorts of good. As great as “Someone Like You” was, I’m glad they went another direction this time.
  • Donnie Vie, a vastly underrated songwriter from the vastly underrated band Enuff Z’nuff, has a new album called Wrapped Around Your Middle Finger (cover image to the right). I haven’t heard it yet, but my expectations are pretty high.

Are there any releases (hard rock or otherwise) that you are looking forward to this year?
