An incredible 2013 concert by Soundgarden has been released in multiple formats. “Soundgarden: Live from the Artists Den” was recorded during the band’s “King Animal” tour and features several tracks from the album and songs from their entire career.
David Finck has returned with a new solo album, “Bassically Jazz.” The bassist, who has worked with artists ranging from George Michael to Herbie Hancock, enlisted the help of singers Linda Eder and Alexis Cole to perform the collection of jazz standards.
As bassist for Megadeth, David Ellefson has been a mainstay of the metal world for decades. That makes it incredible to know he’s just released his first solo album, “Sleeping Giants.” The effort features newly penned songs as well as demos, and more.
If you’ve been looking at bass memes on social media, you’ve probably seen the outrageous two-string bass guitars of Stig Pedersen. Now he’s put those two strings to work again on the new album from his band D-A-D, entitled “A Prayer for the Loud.”
Bass phenom Robert “Bubby” Lewis has returned with his second solo album, entitled “Hero Dynasty.” The 18-song collection is packed with jaw-dropping bass playing, but it’s only to serve the song.
A classic Foreigner gig from the band’s prime is now available as an album and a concert film. “Live at the Rainbow ’78” captures the group during a sold-out show at London’s Rainbow Theatre on April 27, 1978.
311 has returned with their 13th album, “Voyager,” which features their classic blend of genres plus some new influences. The band, anchored by Aaron “P-Nut” Wills, continue to blend rock and reggae while adding in pop, metal, and prog influences.
Ted Gould III has worked with New Orleans legend Zigaboo Modeliste, Jon B., Prince Damons, and more. (He’s even written for No Treble.) Now the veteran bassist has released his debut album as a bandleader under the moniker Brother Theodore.
Four decades-spanning, rare live albums from Paul McCartney have been reissued in a variety of formats. The albums – “Amoeba Gig,” “Paul is Live,” “Choba B CCCP,” and “Wings Over America” – have been remixed and remastered into new vinyl, CD, and digital editions.
Sublime with Rome is back with their third album, entitled “Blessings.” It’s the first album to feature drummer Carlos Verdugo. The band, which began ten years ago with original Sublime drummer Bud Gaugh, is still anchored by original bassist Eric Wilson.
