American hard rock band, Another Lost Year return with their new sophomore studio album "Alien Architect." It features a dozen tracks that will help solidify the notion that this is one of the premier rock bands in America. Beginning with a spoken-word introduction, Another Year Lost warm up in the background, before blasting into the album's lead single "Wolves" as the intense, adrenaline-fueled track will demand your attention. They keep the energy flowing through "Bastard Sons" and "Trigger Finger," before pulling back the reigns for the acoustic strumming of "He Took Beautiful Away." After the power ballad "Memories," Another Year Lost give one last blast of power with the thunderous delivery of "We All Die Alone" and the quick pace of "Holding On Letting Go." Another Year Lost will be on tour this summer, performing alongside Bret Michaels, Vince Neil, Steven Tyler and Papa Roach.

Hungarian rock band Anton Vezuv also recently released their sophomore album
"Lay Low Butterfly." It features six songs, beginning with the slow
blues of "Like A Broken Heart." Their music will not overpower you, but
instead invite you in the warm tones of "Versions" and the jazzy piano
ballad "Out Of Love." They save the best for last with "God Knows" as some slide guitar highlights the worldly feel of the song's melody. To

Next from Austin, TX comes the new concept album from Yes Sun Yes titled "The
Siege Of Austin." The new album tells the fictional tale of giant
robots taking over the city of Austin and Yes Sun Yes is there to save
the day. Beginning with "Intro," Yes Sun Yes slowly build up the story,
before going full-blown rock with the guitar riffs of "The Prophecy,
Revealed." Their sound on "Dear God, What A Mess" draws similarities to
Barenaked Ladies, while Yes Sun Yes try their hand at a pop with the
contagious harmonies of "Only Theoretical (A Bad Plan Is Better Than No
Plan)." The band give their battle cry with "To War!," then finish off
the attack with the 311/island vibe of "The Final Confrontation
(Cowards)." To find out more about Yes Sun Yes and their latest release

Finally, from Already Dead Tapes & Records is the debut
album from Rodeo titled "Dust Bowl." It is quoted as being the best
soundtrack to a Spaghetti Western movie that was never made. The new
fourteen-song release is filled with atmospheric soundscapes that paint
the perfect setting in your mind, beginning with "Ghost Town" as lone strings
lead the way. The subtleties in their music sets the stage as you
anticipate what's to come from "Tumbleweed" and "No Man's Land." The
southern swagger of "Ride Across The Border" and the Latin-style
rockabilly of "Drive" allows the perfect backdrop to create your own
soundtrack with your memories. The album wraps up with the dark piano
overtones of "Funeral" and the quiet sparkle of "Messages." To find out
