Abandon and Remedy Drive have given us teasers for their upcoming albums, and there are also new lyric videos from Manic Drive (“VIP”), Rhett Walker Band (“Here’s To The Ones”), Ashes Remain (“Here For A Reason”) and Phillips Craig And Dean (“Jesus, Only Jesus”). Which album announcement or lyric video excites you the most?
