Our July 2016 New Music Releases roster features an intriguing blend of new music and spiffed-up re-issues by artists such as Blink-182, R.E.M. and Dave Matthews Band, as well as the long-awaited return of D Generation.

The beloved NYC-based garage rock band returns on July 29th with their first album in 17 years, Nothing is Anywhere. “We’ve finally made a record that represents us,” says guitarist and album producer Danny Sage. “We make a really good noise on stage, and this album is a little more snotty, nasty. The needles are in the red a bit more.”

Blink-182 kicks off July with California, their seventh album and first without former guitarist and possible current UFO hunter Tom De Longe. The band has released three songs from the album so far: "Rabbit Hole," "Bored to Death" and "Built This Pool."

Two exciting new records from the heavier side of the spectrum also arrive in July: Big Business returns to their original two-man format for Command Your Weather, and members of Clutch, Fu Manchu and Black Sabbath team up for the self-titled Dunsmuir debut.

Last but not least, Peter Gabriel, R.E.M and the Dave Matthews Band all get in on the reissue game with CD, deluxe vinyl and / or half-speed remastered versions of some of their most popular albums.

We've broken down July's new music releases down week-by-week, so you can be sure to set aside some money for a visit your beloved local retailer. You'll also find links to more detailed stories about some of the biggest albums hitting stores this month.
