ON THE STEREO
1 ROLO TOMASSI – BALANCING THE DARK It’s been three long years since RT’S last album. This roaring peek at their forthcoming opus says they’ve spent that time becoming twice as good as they were already. 2 SKINDRED – MACHINE Ready for the surprise of 2018? The new Skindred song – all about partying, natch – is designed to ignite pits. Whoever could have seen that coming, eh? 3 ESCAPE THE FATE – BROKEN HEART Craig Mabbitt’s had his heart broken.we know that because it’s the very clear subject of Escape The Fate’s new song. He still sounds pretty upbeat, mind. 4 MYLES KENNEDY – YEAR OF THE TIGER What does Myles Kennedy sound like away from Alter Bridge and Slash, doing his own thing? Still like one of rock’s finest voices, which we like. 5 BLACK VEIL BRIDES – WAKE UP The Wild Ones’ new album, vale, sees them firmly back on track. And this banger forces the point home perfectly.
