Weekly Wire: Your New Music Playlist Featuring Black Label Society, Andrew W.K. and More
Every Friday, we're curating a playlist of the best new music of the week and beyond, putting together the best that hard rock and metal music has to offer. Here's what you can expect from the latest Weekly Wire:
There's no one better to kick things off with than Black Label Society. This week, they've released their long-awaited Grimmest Hits, Zakk Wylde's latest collection of songs based on his monster riffs (despite the title, it's all new songs, by the way). "The Betrayal" captures some of the doomy heaviness he's been working on through his entire career, mixed in with a good helping of blues-rock to set things off.
We've also included Bad Wolves' newest song, their cover of The Cranberries' hit "Zombie" in tribute to the late Dolores O'Riordan. All proceeds made from the song are going straight to O'Riordan's three children, so every play on the track counts.
Today is also the release day of Of Mice & Men's long-awaited "Defy," the band's first album since the departure of vocalist Austin Carlile. The band found their new groove on the new record, and we've thrown in "Forever YDG'n" to the mix, their third song in the YDG "trilogy."
We also have brand new tracks from Between The Buried and Me, Machine Head, Cane Hill, King Woman, Joe Perry, Breaking Benjamin, Cynic and a whole lot more. It's been another great week for music, so enjoy diving into the playlist below.
