Serious music fans are always closely tracking the release of albums by their favorite bands so that they can conveniently steal it on the internet as soon as it becomes available to the public. Everybody knows that new music is on the way from The National, Vampire Weekend, and Daft Punk. Thing is, there's tons of stuff coming out in the second half of May and the entirety of June that nobody saw coming. Let's take a quick look at some of the strangest and most unexpected albums that aren't being paid attention to.

The Artist: Mindless Self Indulgence
The Album: How I Learned Not To Give a Shit And Love Mindless Self Indulgence
The Release Date: May 14th
The Label: Uppity Cracker
The Verdict: These guys haven't dropped a new album since If in 2008 and I haven't heard anything from the NYC weirdos since then. Sure, their devoted fan base has been closely tracking the demos they released on Youtube, but this album hasn't really gotten much coverage outside of that. Maybe it's because they called Jack White a "bitch". Maybe it's because this is yet another Kickstarter album.



The Artist: Spin Doctors
The Album: If The River Was Whiskey
The Release Date: May 14th
The Label: Ruf Records
The Verdict: Releasing your album on the same day as Vampire Weekend is almost always a bad idea, especially if your band hasn't gotten any real attention in over a decade.



The Artist: Anvil
The Album: Hope In Hell
The Release Date: May 28th
The Label: The End Records
The Verdict: This band never broke through, but almost every metal band from the 80s claim they owe their careers to these guys. Jury is still out on whether or not they can still rock.



The Artist: Alice In Chains
The Album: The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here
The Release Date: May 28th
The Label: Virgin/EMI
The Verdict: These dudes just keep trucking despite the deaths of Layne Staley and Mike Starr. Don't give up on them just yet. They stood alongside Nirvana and Pearl Jam as the proprietors of grunge music.



The Artist: Megadeth
The Album: Super Collider
The Release Date: June 4th
The Label: Tradecraft/Universal
The Verdict: The Thrash-Metal gods are back with yet another album despite the fact that Thrash-Metal hasn't been cool in a really, really, really long time. Then again, at least they're not Metallica.



The Artist: Jimmy Eat World
The Album: Damage
The Release Date: June 11th
The Label: RCA/Dine Alone Records
The Verdict: If you're not psyched to revisit your childhood love for this band, you weren't born in the late 80s/early 90s. These dudes still sound fresh.



The Artist: Empire Of The Sun
The Album: Ice On The Dune
The Release Date: June 18th
The Label: Capitol Records
The Verdict: It's really a shame that there isn't an insane amount of hype for the upcoming album by this Australian duo. Empire has an impressive resume, and we're looking forward to the newest addition to their discography.



The Artist: Bosnian Rainbows
The Album: Bosnian Rainbows
The Release Date: June 25th
The Label: Sargent House
The Verdict: The Mars Volta probably broke up because of this project. Guitarist Omar Rodriguez Lopez took his talents to Bosnian Rainbows in order to make music that sounds a lot like Rush.



The Artist: John Legend
The Album: Love In The Future
The Release Date: June 25th
The Label: G.O.O.D Music/Sony
The Verdict: G.O.O.D. music artist and classy gentleman extraordinaire John Legend continues to put out great soul music based around the piano. This should be no exception.
