[photogallerylink id=44863]Although it’s a somewhat slow day in the music-release biz, there are a couple choice KROQ artists to get your summer started ASAP. Who’s ready to forget about that whole Lakers thing and get a hold of some new tunes to get them through the rest of the week?
Sublime with Rome, Death Cab For Cutie, Manchester Orchestra and more…
Even though KROQ world-premiered it last week, [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Sublime with Rome[/lastfm] released their new single “Panic” on Fueled By Ramen.
The up-tempo style is sure to bring about good memories in Sublime fans. The album “Yours Truly” will be out in the smack-middle of the summer, and of course their sure-to-be ridiculous show with 311 goes down August 20th at the Verizon Wireless Amphitheater.
[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Death Cab for Cutie[/lastfm]’s new album “Codes and Keys” doesn’t drop until the end of the month, but the Seattle quartet keeps slowing giving their fans morsels of new music.
You’ve already heard the riff-tastic first single “You Are A Tourist”, now watch the new clip for the slow-burning “Home Is A Fire” and listen yet another new track, “Underneath the Sycamore”.
The video was directed by the band’s bassist, Nick Hammer, Obama-poster artist Shepard Fairey and stars the city of Los Angeles (no, really).
The video’s LA-centric vibe is a perfect compliment to the two shows KROQ is presenting with Death Cab for Cutie at the beautiful Greek Theater August 18th and 19th.
Also, here the just-released “Underneath the Sycamore”, a classic-sounding Death Cab for Cutie track.
Atlanta alt-band [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Manchester Orchestra[/lastfm] was awesome enough to come and play in KROQ’s backyard a little over a month ago, and now their excellent new album “Simple Math” is hitting shelves today. Reviews so far have been in the “outstanding” range, but be your own judge — watch the video for the title track below and stream the album on the band’s website.
The hilarious “Digital Shorts” dudes over at Saturday Night Live, [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]The Lonely Island[/lastfm], are back with their comedic-rap sophomore effort “Turtleneck & Chain” — which you can count on being the next big group costume this halloween.
The album features plenty of their recent viral hits from SNL (“I Just Had Sex”) along with the recent club smash/swashbuckling Michael Bolton cameo “Jack Sparrow.”
