On Tues., Jan. 6th 2015, we will publish The Pier’s 2015 Most Anticipated Albums. This is the time of year we get to anticipate & discuss new albums from some of our favorite bands in Reggae-Rock. We’re also getting some information from the bands about their new releases…
When we say Albums, we don’t mean EP’s or singles. We’re talking your good ol’ fashion full length album. While we just got done celebrating some of 2014’s best albums with our 2014 Pier Awards, we look forward to the future to try and anticipate what bands are expected or due for a new album in 2015.
Some notable & regular artists that did-not release a full length album in 2014 are: Stephen Marley, Slightly Stoopid, Pepper, The Expendables, Katchafire, Iration, The Green, Collie Buddz, Ballyhoo!, Stick Figure, The Aggrolites, Easy Star All-Stars and that’s just scratching the surface to what could be in store for us in 2015!
Some of the best tours and live experiences are around artists promoting & performing fresh new material. With some of our favorite bands expected to release new albums, its almost a certainty we will see high energy tours accompany these albums.
On Tuesday, January 6th, 2015, we will discuss the aforementioned artists, and many more who are expected to put out new albums in the new year. Some of the information we’ve received is quite detailed and exciting, while other bands are still in the planning stages without much details outside a confirmation for a new record. What makes it so exciting is that the genre is known for it’s guest appearances and collaborations. It’s always exciting to anticipate new collaborations & seeing where this evolving genre is taking us.
Let us know which band you’re hoping drops a new album in the comments below – Come back the first Tuesday in January to read The Pier’s 2015 Most Anticipated Albums!
