Andy Black, Felix Martin, Big Business + Record Store Day

Today we bring you new releases for today, as well as some releases of interest for record store day which is tomorrow.

Andy Black – The Ghost Of Ohio

The Black Veil Brides lead singer returns with his second solo album, which like the first one, is a complete departure from BVB. The album is a mix of rock, pop, and some gothic influences sprinkled in.

Whether BVB continues or not, Andy at least has another viable avenue to travel, he has smoothly pulled off doing double duty without a huge amount of negative waves from his fans, quite the opposite, most have followed him along for the journey. If you’re a fan of The Shadow Side, you’ll probably enjoy this as well.

Felix Martin – Caracas

The Venezuelan guitarist is best known for his 16 string double-neck guitar, his latest album, named after the capital of his native country, is his take on a series of Venezuelan songs which he has converted into progressive metal.

Big Business – The Beast You Are

This duo is made up of Jared Warren and Coady Willis both of the Melvins. The band has been around for fifteen years, The Beast You Are marks their sixth full-length studio album, their first since 2016’s Command Your Weather.
