With new albums from the likes of U2, Coldplay, and Foo Fighters expected, 2014 is shaping up to a massive year in rock 'n' roll. Some of the most talented rockers in recent history are set to release albums. While it was tough, we narrowed down the top five rock 'n' roll comeback albums we want to hear in 2014. Click through the list above and get ready for glory.
1. U2's First Album Since 2009
U2 is one of the most beloved bands in the world, it’s a fact. So the rumors of a new album in 2014 have been making the interwebz go nuts. According to Billboard, genre-leaping super producer Danger Mouse is involved in the production and the album could be released as early as April.
2. Coldplay's Sixth Album
A few short years since Coldplay's 2011 release Mylo Xyloto, fans are feverishly awaiting this arena rocking-London quartet's next move. In the wake of their contribution to the Hunger Games: Catching Fire soundtrack, anticipation is peaking for their 2014 release. The latest word on a potential release date slates it for September. The album is rumored to be look back on their earlier work, which sounds like something we can't wait to hear.
3. Foo Fighters' New Album
Dave Grohl is a ubiquitous presence in popular culture, between side-projects such as the documentary Sound City and the recent 20th anniversary celebration of Nirvana’s In Utero. One of the busiest men in rock music, he is now hunkering down with his bandmates to record their next eagerly anticipated album. Having already written most of the songs, the process of recording is set to start early in the year, which makes a 2014 release date a lofty ambition. What has us most excited is Grohl’s admission to XFM that the album will be recorded in a non-conventional way.
4. Tool's First Album in Almost a Decade
Unlike many bands, Tool can get away with making fans wait three to five years for a new album because each effort is nothing short of breathtaking. In this case it has been almost a decade since 10,000 Days came out in 2006. There is light at the end of the tunnel however, as drummer Danny Carey told Rolling Stone to expect a new album in early 2014. Here’s hoping the band can get on the same page as vocalist Maynard James Keenan, who is busy with his own side projects, to make it a reality.
5. Kasabian 10th Anniversary Album
2014 marks the 10-year anniversary of Kasabian’s self-titled debut album. To commemorate the occasion they will be returning to their hometown of Leicester to play to a show for 35,000 plus fans in June. Currently working on their next album, the band promises to have some new tunes to play by the time of the show. If they continue their evolution as the supremely confident band we heard on 2011’s Velociraptor! It should be quite a listening experience.
