Boys bust out the jams

Gazette file photo
IS THIS THE YEAR THAT REZNOR RETURNS? We can only hope so. It’s been too long since we’ve had a fix of new NIN material.

Canada looks to continue to rule this year as new LPs from Royal City and The Hidden Cameras are scheduled, as well as EPs from indie heroes Broken Social Scene and Matthew Barber. Not to mention, Canadian alt-rock heavyweights Our Lady Peace are currently in Los Angeles working on their next album, which should be completed by the summer.

The world of hip hop is also expecting a number of new discs in the new year. Eminem and 50 Cent are both readying new records, ensuring that a shitload of CDs will be sold. And their father, Dr. Dre, also plans to drop his final album ever, ensuring another shitload of CDs will be sold. Yay, violent hip hop!

Power-pop favourites Weezer are working with heavily-bearded producer Rick Rubin (Slayer, Beastie Boys, Public Enemy, Red Hot Chili Peppers) for their fifth album due this year, while also readying their first DVD. Not to mention, rumours are swirling that this is the year for the return of Trent Reznor’s brainchild, Nine Inch Nails, who will supposedly be coming back at us with a new catalogue of ultra-dark industrial jams in an album called Bleedthrough (unless, of course, Reznor scraps the whole project again). Lets hear it for hot rocker boys!
