2018 Preview – Top albums due to come out

Another year is upon us and it’s time to look ahead at some of our favourite bands who will be lighting up 2018 and gracing us with new tunes.

Arctic Monkeys – TBA

Well it has been a while since we have seen anything from the Arctic Monkeys. Going out on hiatus in 2016, the group apparently have been holed up in the studio for the majority of 2017, so we can only hope we can see the fruits of their labors in the year ahead, it’s almost a given now, whatever they produce will reach number 1 in the album charts.

Fall Out Boy – M       a    n            i                           a

May have over done the spaces in the title of this one. Fall Out Boy originally had planned to release the follow up to American Beauty/American Psycho sometime mid last year but as time drew closer to release, they postponed the release by four months to work on some of the tracks. Well M   a    n    i     a should be upon us January 19th so we are hoping we won’t see it set back anymore this time round.

Myles Kennedy – Year of the Tiger

The minute news broke of a Myles Kennedy solo album, we were sold instantly. The front man for Alter Bridge and often teaming up with the legend Slash, a Myles Kennedy solo project comes with open arms as one of the greatest voices in rock takes to the spotlight by himself, we’re sure it’s going to be a belter.

Don Broco – Technology

We’ve had a pretty good preview of what to expect from Don Broco’s next album. Five singles have been released from their upcoming album: Pretty, Technology, Stay Ignorant, T-Shirt Song and Come Out to LA and all of them have been thoroughly played here at TiN HQ so we are pretty darn excited to hear what else is in store.

Muse – TBA 

Well, lets run through what we know so far about Muse’s eighth studio album. Firstly,  we have been given a single, ‘Dig Down’ which is a weird one which was a grower, the weird whammy synths is what caught us off guard and what we also love. Secondly, the album is due this year and thirdly, we are expecting a second single ‘Thought Contagion’ sometime early Feb, according to Mr Bellamy’s Twitter. That is pretty much all we know so far, but still, we look forward to hearing more.

The Prodigy – TBA

A curve ball inclusion but it’s a necessary one, it looks like the Prodigy are back at it after announcing they would no longer be making studio albums in 2015 after the release of The Day is My Enemy. The band took to Facebook, announcing shows for the end of 2017 and with that saying new beats were being played and a new album will be with us this year.

Right…Where to begin? So Tonight Alive have announced: a new album, a new tour, released a new single and also confirmed guitarist Whakaio Taahi’s departure, all in the last 48 hours on their social media pages.

So let’s start from the beginning of their volley of posts. They released new single ‘Temple’ on Sunday on the Radio 1 Rock Show with Daniel P Carter. Which is always a good way to get fans paying attention.

The announcement of their latest album was next to be announced, being called ‘Underworld’ and is set to be released on January 12th. New single ‘Temple’ will also feature on their new album as well as releasing the new video for their latest single.

Next up announcement typically would be a tour to support this new album, with most bands you would be correct, but next was the departure of Whakaio from the band. Claiming to want to step back from the touring side of making music and pursue his own career in songwriting and producing, which we here at This Is Noise can only wish the very best of luck in the future for.

The official statement released by the band can be seen below

But to finish the series of announcements on a high, the band released a headline European tour being accompanied by ‘With Confidence’ and ‘The Gospel Youth’ which will take place in March 2018 with six dates in the UK featuring: London, Manchester, Nottingham and Leeds among other locations on this tour
