Here are three new rock albums to keep an eye out for this June. Take a listen…or maybe several!
1. “But Here We Are” by the Foo Fighters
Genre: Alternative/Hard/Grunge Rock
The classic Foo Fighter theme of enlivening rock music is sure to be encapsulated in this album. “Rescued” is the pre-released track that beautifully delivers on the heart-racing and song-screaming beats you need as the school year wraps up. This is a particularly personal album for the group since the band’s drummer Taylor Hawkins’ death last year. Mark your calendar for June 2.
2. “Chris Black Changed My Life” by Portugal. The Man
Genre: Alternative/Psychedelic rock
Do not skip this one. Various genes and styles combine to form a feel-good sound in this album. Don’t believe me? Check out new tracks “Dummy” and “Champ” and see for yourself. Not only does this album highlight the idea that everyone has a lasting impact on one another (in reference to the loss of a friend of the group), but it also comments on relevant political conversations happening today. These songs will have you hooked until the full album release on June 23.
3. “Living in a Haze” by Milky Chance
Genre: Alternative/pop/folk rock
Based on its title single “Living in a Haze,” Milky Chance’s new album will provide a collection of lively songs, while expertly disguising the theme of dancing to escape reality in its upbeat presentation. Although this group is relatively new, this album will be their fourth, released on June 9.
