Not to brag, but last year, nine of our most anticipated 2016 albums actually dropped. Was it sheer luck, or have we finally obtained the crystal ball that makes all of our long awaited music come to life? Probably not, but that doesn’t make us any less excited to share what we’re looking forward to in 2017, especially after the music that came our way last year.
Sure, there’s a method to our madness. There’s reason to believe that the albums on our list are likely to see the light of day this year. However, no matter how many blog posts, interview quotes or Tweets our favorite bands share about their forthcoming records, we know that hiccups and roadblocks happen. While there’s no fun in extra time spent between your favorite band’s albums, good things often come to those who wait.
Below is a list of our most anticipated albums of 2017. Some may be right around the corner. Others may drop on the final week of the year. A few may never see the light of the day. Whatever the case, we’re stoked to hear whatever 2017 brings. Check back each day as we add to our list, and as always, be sure to comment and share YOUR most anticipated music of the year!
