New Music Releases – July 2014
Our July 2014 New Music Releases list shows that you’ll have plenty of great new classic rock music to listen to each week while you’re hanging out at the beach, at a backyard cookout, or, if you’re like us… at work. Yay?
Without a doubt the biggest album being released in July is ‘Hypnotic Eye,’ the new effort from Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers. It’s their 13th record, and first since 2010’s blues-infused ‘Mojo.’ Judging from new songs like ‘U Get Me High‘ and ‘American Dream Plan B,’ we’re in for a treat.
We’ll also get the long-awaited release of the multi-disc live album from Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young‘s legendary 1974 tour, as well as brand new studio efforts from Ted Nugent, Judas Priest and Yes. There’s also expanded versions of major albums from Bon Jovi and Pink Floyd, and new concert videos from Guns N’ Roses and ZZ Top.
