2014 Album Release Calendar

Welcome to Rawkblog’s rolling 2014 album release calendar, one writer’s attempt to corral the ever-growing iTunes/vinyl/CD/7″/Bandcamp release dates of every worthwhile band on Earth into a single useful page. As always, this is a list of albums, EPs and singles I’m personally interested in or intrigued by, not an exhaustive document; all dates are subject to change; albums released on an unofficial basis will be listed under “digital releases” and not tied to a specific date. This year, I’m going to include Amazon buy links if applicable — if you purchase through those, you’ll be supporting this site.
