With decades of success in the music business, Toby Keith has earned total musical freedom as reflected in his new album The Bus Songs. The Show Dog release is a little country and a lot of funny. Listeners will be transported to Keith’s tour bus where these tunes were born. Get a visual inside the bus below and you’ll start to wish you were a part of this ‘Wacky’ crew too.
Continuing with the theme of musical creativity, pop punk band Four Year Strong is back with an album of rarities and unplugged favorites. Some of You Will Like This, Some of You Won’t takes a few of the groups heavy hits and completely reinvents them for this Pure Noise release. The title is all too fitting as some fans may prefer the originals but with the a punk rock ‘who cares’ attitude, Four Year Strong show that their art is for them not necessarily for everyone else. Check out the new rendition of “Heroes Get Remembered, Legends Never Die,” below and decide for yourself.
For the first time in eight years, Living Colour is back with Shade via Megaforce Records. The rock legends, best known for classic hits such as “Cult of Personality,” have dropped a powerful record true to their unique and indescribable sound which touches just about every genre.

You have to hear it to believe it as it seems Living Colour has created a genre of their own. Listen below and get your much needed fix for more here.
