We’ve heard a lot from certain Richmond artists already working on new material. Singles were released this year, but more stuff will be coming out in 2016 and judging what I’ve heard already, these artists will be the ones to watch next year.
Those Manic Seas released the new single “Outlier” this year and have been extensively touring since. They’ll most likely be back with some new music in the coming year.
Lady God released “More Bang for Your Buck” and are making themselves known as the best live rock band in the city (seriously, go see them. You will not regret it.).
The New Outliers released its debut album “Begin the Everything” in late November and it’s a solid record.
Avers released its “Wasted Tracks” EP this month and have more new music on the way with a new record planned for 2016.
The incredible Lucy Dacus released “I Don’t Wanna Be Funny Anymore,” which pushed its way into my song rotation. She’ll release her debut album “No Burden” on Feb 26.
