WQLZ Music Minute

March 29, 2012


Music News from the Rock Station, 92-7 WQLZ by Bishop Shinedown's "Amaryllis" album cover


Selling gangbusters


Shinedown is expected to have quite the showing in the first week of sales for Amaryllis. Industry experts indicate that their fourth studio attempt could sell upwards to 90,000 copies in the first week. That’s a pretty good indication that Shinedown will be around for the long haul as their staying power with fans is evident with healthy sales in the first week. Plus their latest single “Bully” is top of the charts.


New singles soon


In just a matter of weeks, we’ll have our hands on the latest single from Linkin Park called “Burn It Down”. A video should accompany the singles release as well sometime mid-April. The band recently shared with the press that their previous record may have gone to far with the use of electronica and the new album will be more down-to-earth. Expect Linkin Park’s fifth attempt sometime this summer.


Rush album update


Word on the street, (actually in the music blogs) is that Rush will soon be releasing a new single for their upcoming album Clockwork Angels. The single is said to be called “Headlong Flight” and will hit the airwaves April 19th. Rush had originally released two songs online: “Caravan” and “BU2B” reports indicate they had to re-record those because of a record label change. The band will release Clockwork Angels on May 29th via Roadrunner Records.
