Canyoneer copies TWE ftw

Yep, Most anticipated. Mine is better though, because its longer and TWE is a ninny. Yeah ho, you read it.
1The Mars Volta

The Mars Volta are an odd crew of sorts. While they've yet to put out a bad album, it will be an almost insurmountable challenge to top the sprawling epic that was Frances the Mute. As Amputechture seemed a more suitable follow-up to De-Loused with the whole "explosion of sound" thing, maybe the new record will be a proper answer to FtM. Expect it Early/Mid Summer 2007.
2Strung Out

With the recent release of "Downtown", my boner for this band has gotten ever more erect. Based on initial comments from the band and the sound of the new track, it seems like the band will progress even further from their early sound and more towards an experimental metal/hardcore sound hinted on the 2000's Element of Sonic Defiance EP, which is good, as it would suck to see a band with so much talent go the way of the buffallo (aka Pennywise, wait damnit they havent broken up yet). Expect it Summer.
3Streetlight Manifesto

The only ska band worth caring about has finally set a release date (January 23rd) for the long awaited follow-up to the phenomenally popular Everything Went Numb. As reported by AP, singer/guitarist/song writer/control freak Tomas Kalnoky has reported that System of a Down and the Mars Volta heavily influenced the sound of the record. Expect it sometime before the apocalypse.
4Against Me!

So apparently Tom Gabel thought their last record sucked. I tend to disagree quite extremely, so fuck him. Against Me! really havent put out a bad album yet imo, so we'll see what their major label debut has to offer. Expect it Spring.

Really now, this is make or break time for Thrice. They broke out of their mold with their last album, and have now decided to offer us 4-elemental themed EPs, beginning with the Earth disc. This probably should have gone higher up, but I like 3 of the bands better and one of them hasnt put a record out since 2003, so meh. Expect it Early Summer.
6Hot Cross

Oooo Risk Revival. I almost forgot emo-goliaths Hot Cross were coming out with their follow up to 2003's Cryonics and 2005's Fair Trades and Farewells EP. With only one guitarist in the mix this time, and the record having been re-recorded due to dissatisfaction by the band, many people on this site are certainly awaiting its release. I'd go so far as to say it will probably be the first release anyone cares about in 2007. Expect it Februray 21st, 2007.
7A Wilhelm Scream

Although there has been no official word on a follow up to 2005's bumfuxxing metal-punk catastromindphuck Ruiner, the band has been hard at work writing songs on the road for the follow up. If they hold up to their word, expect it to be better than all of their previous records. Expect it possibly in 2006.
8Alkaline Trio

Long overdue major label debut. Drummer writing songs with Matt and Dan. No more songs about booze and girls. Can you tell I'm getting bored with this quick?? Expect it Summer.
9Coheed & Cambria

So after ditching both the bassist and their human metronome, Coheed & Cambria has been busy writing and demoing the follow-up to their breakout album Good Apollo IV: blah blah blah long dorky title. Dillinger Escape Plan drummer Chris Pennie is rumored to be the session drummer for the band. Hair machine/alcoholic/front man Claudio Sanchez has also stated that the record will be darker than previous works, so no more Devil in Jersey City's it seems. Expect it late spring or early summer.
10Panic! At The Disco

Yeah so a Fever You Can't Sweat Out became my surprise record of 2005, but in 2006. Weird. They have a new bassist who can play some solid lines and isnt just a pick bassist. He's also the only member of the band who can grow facial hair. But really, what I'm anxious to find out is if they can top pop-classics like Time to Dance and Build God, Then We'll Talk. Expect it fall or winter.
