Record Store Day – Special Releases By New Bands

New York – Record Store Day is just a week away! Marked as a day of record store culture celebration, and when hundreds of artists release special vinyls, CDs, and cassettes, rarities and splits, to remind us why physical stores need to exist. Every year there is also an ambassador who acts as the spokesperson for the occasion, and this year that person is non other than Chuck D from Public Enemy. Here’s what he had to say about being honored with the title:

“In this age where industry has threaded the music sound with virtual sight and story I am honored to be called upon to be Record Store Day Ambassador of 2014. With the masses, neck bent into their smartphones, let all of us music lovers GPS our way into a reality that is the Record Store. It’s worth a great try, let’s do this…”

Let do it, then. And with that said, here are some releases by new bands we’re looking forward to on April 19:
