2014 New Music Releases

AC/DC, 'Rock or Bust'

If this list of 2014 new-music releases is any indication, classic-rock fans are in for a very good year in terms of both new albums and reissues.

We’ve already been told to expect new 2014 studio albums from artists such as Alice Cooper, Judas Priest, U2, Robert Plant and many more. There’s also been confirmation of new box sets from the Small Faces, Michael Bloomfield and the Beatles.

Of course, the big fish that’s expected to hit our shores (and lighten our wallets considerably) this year is Jimmy Page‘s much-promised revisiting of the entire Led Zeppelin catalog. Reportedly, this will include a box-set version of each album, complete with unreleased studio and live songs.

You will find all the dates for 2014’s new music releases below. Click on the highlighted titles below to get more information on each project.

We’ll keep updating this list throughout the year, so be sure to check back frequently!
