New & Noteworthy is a weekly column in which we highlight some of the newest rock and metal releases coming out each week. This week is brings us new music from Death Angel, Duff McKagan, and more! For last week’s releases you can check out the last New & Noteworthy, and the latest sales numbers in Metal By Numbers.  Be sure to follow us on Spotify to get this month’s New & Noteworthy Playlist, updated every Friday with the newest metal releases. Currently I am in Denver for work, and will be until the end of next week, so N&N may be abbreviated to fit my travel schedule.
