There’s so much great music coming out this month! So since this week is “freebie” week over at Dolly’s, on this Music Monday I picked songs from my favorite October album releases to share with you.
I’m starting with this band, whose Banditos tour is due to kick off in Nashville on Tuesday, the 16th. This is the fourth single (and my favorite of the songs I’ve heard thus far) from their latest release, Trench (release date: October 5):
Twenty One Pilots – “My Blood”
The album featuring my second selection is set to release on October 12. This sobering video features the names, birth dates, and death dates of some of the most recognizable victims of police brutality. There is profanity in the video as well. From the upcoming The Atlas Underground:
Tom Morello – “Rabbit’s Revenge” (featuring Bassnectar, Big Boi and Killer Mike)
This next selection is from my absolute favorite new rock band in…well, quite a few years! Still selling out arenas and still drawing comparisons to Led Zeppelin, Greta Van Fleet are releasing their first full-length album, Anthem of the Peaceful Army, on October 19. And one of these days, there WILL BE a post entirely about GVF and their sound and how they give me hope for rock and roll! In the meantime, here is the first release from Anthem. It’s been out a few months now, but there may be some of you who haven’t heard it yet, and it is definitely worth a listen. And I really like this video, because it’s like the video version of a fantasy scene painted on the side of a late 70s model van!
Greta Van Fleet – “When The Curtain Falls”
