Let's see, there was Siamese Fighting Fish, but their album is already out - I hear they're going to record more stuff later this year though, so maybe still reason to be stoked there. Otherwise it comes down to three things I am massively excited about, and then all the things I'm mildly curious about:
Emery - We Do What We Want
Taking Back Sunday - TBA
Darkest Hour - The Human Romance (this is already out though, I just haven't had time to absorb it yet)
Those are obviously some of my favourite bands, so I have a raging boner for the thought of new songs by them. Other than them, there are a couple of things I'm interested in as well.
Death Cab For Cutie - Codes And Keys // Death Cab are sooooo consistent, so I'm pretty sure this is going to be really good
A Lot Like Birds - anything new at all // Hey, Kurt Travis is in the band now = very interested TL
Alesana - TBA // Been liking these cheeky dudes more for each new album, so I'm also quite confident I'll like this
Saosin - ??? // I think I'll hope to my dying day, that Saosin find a new singer, turn their ship around, and restore but a fragment of their former glory. Could this be the year?
Twin Atlantic - Free // they're promising, they're scottish, they have epic tunes - can't wait
The Xcerts - ??? // From an interview it sounded like these guys intended to release pretty much an album a year, so here's to hoping that happens
Lostprophets - ??? // This album has already been recorded I think, and as usual LP are promising bigger and better things - Always interesting to see how they measure up
Panic! At The Disco - Vices and Virtues // I have a feeling this is going to really suck, but hey, we'll see
Dance Gavin Dance - Downtown Battle Mountain pt. 2 // same expectations as for P!atd
The Twilight Sad - they're promising, they're scottish, see a pattern here?
There might be a few more things, but I can't think of them right now
