The Most Anticipated Of 2013
Well, here’s to the end of 2012, it’s just another day but a completely new year! Here at Music Central, all we care about is what music happens next. So keep on scrolling for some big names in albums and shows (mostly near Nashville) anticipated for 2013!
1. Wretched and Divine
Black Veil Brides third studio album comes out on January 8 of 2013. Their first single “In The End” and a prospect of the concept album’s transformation into a movie promises a great, entertaining release. Black Veil Brides is growing up and out with the maturity of not only their sound, but their look. Only time will show if they can keep the interest of their fans, although this does not appear to be a problem at all.
Paramore’s fourth, self-titled studio album, Paramore, will be the only album without Josh and Zac Farro, the two members that departed in 2010 after their last album’s release. It will be released on April 9th, 2013. I personally am excited to hear the sound with only half the original members, but I hold belief that Hayley Williams can keep the Paramore sound, and maybe even further their style in some way.
3. My Chemical Romance 5
While the band’s previously scrapped album, Conventional Weapons is being released in incimates of two, “MCR5” is hopefully in the making. (Note: The album is not yet titled). Originally guitarist Frank Iero had told the fans to be expecting in the summer of ’12, but now we can only hope to see a 2013 release, and I must say it is much in anticipation.
According to Gerard Way, the new album will be darker (return to Revenge?!) and with costumes!
Also: Killjoys comic release in the summer of 2013.
4. The Nearly Deads
The band’s debut album- their first full length- should be released sometime in 2013. While there is little real information about the album- no album art, title, or release date- I am in powerful faith that it will be a record to remember, and they will quickly gain even an even wider reputation for being awesome. Songs that are famous between fans such as Changeover are going to be recorded on this album, as well as suspected re-recording of the original The Nearly Deads EP. Keep an eye out.
5. Sleeping With Sirens
A post-hardcore band that broke out on the scene as a big name (often associated with Pierce The Veil for their similar sound and their singers’ duet on “King For A Day”) after their second album and their appearance on Warped Tour, singer Kellin Quinn says the new record will be the best yet.
No one can guess where the band will go next, but you can guess it is going to rock! Expect the album in 2013!
6. Warped Tour
Fifty-two dates and over two-hundred bands, this is the place to go to see most of your favorite bands…even if they aren’t punk. Sadly this is a truth, but punk still exists on Warped Tour. However it shares the stage with metal, electronic rock, and even pop.
Last year’s lineup was- in my opinion- phenomenal. It included All Time Low, We Are the in Crowd, Yellowcard, Pierce the Veil, and Sleeping With Sirens in short. Next year, I hope to join the amusement and moshing. Warped Tour 2013!
7. Journey’s Backyard BBQ
One of the best times in my life, Journey’s Backyard BBQ 2012 included Marianas Trench and the wonderful The Nearly Deads, it is free and hits Nashville every year. There’s no telling (yet) who will join the adventure next year, but I know I’ll be there.
Nevershoutnever and All American Rejects were a few names also involved last year. It’s a big, free concert, and you’re sure to meet new people and hear great bands there. Journey’s Backyard BBQ 2013 is sure to be fun!
There are also concerts in Nashville, such as Halestorm with The Nearly Deads and Adalene, and Shinedown with Three Days Grace and Shinedown in Bridgestone Arena.
I hope everyone makes the most of 2013 and enjoys the music! What are you anticipating?
