New Music Playlist: Alice in Chains, Serj Tankian, Devin Townsend & More
Welcome to our weekly roundup of the week's best new music streams from across the internet. Kicking off this week's playlist is an epic 18-minte sampler of the new Alice In Chains album. If that isn't worth playing, I don't know what is. There's a couple of interesting alternative surprised this week: a collaboration between Serj Tankian, Devin Townsend and more under the banner "Revolution Harmony" with a charity song. Biffy Clyro have also done something different for charity with a very unusual cover song ... scroll down to see what it is. If you love finding upcoming artists in these playlists, you're in for a treat with Scorpion Child who've produced a proper classic rock summer anthem. Fantastic work. What do you like or loathe? Let us know your reaction to this week's playlist in the comments.

Alice in Chains "The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here" (Album Sampler)

A generous 18 minutes of previews from their brand new album. What do you think?

Serj Tankian, Devin Townsend & Friends as Revolution Harmony "We Are"

This song first appeared back in March, but it's about to be released a single where all the proceeds go to a charity that buys instruments for South African children.

Arctic Monkeys "Do I Wanna Know?"

Brand new from the northern British rock band. You might have heard it live during their spring US tour, but if not, it'll appear on their as-yet-untitled fifth album which is out this year

Queensryche "Queensryche" (Full Album)

The "original" Queensryche, sans singer Geoff Tate, have posted their entire new album for streaming. Tate founded his own version of the band with the same name, but their first album was panned by some listeners. What do you make of this one?

Biffy Clyro "Killing in the Name" (Rage Against the Machine cover)

As part of an anti-poverty concert, Biffy produced this bizarre acoustic cover of RATM's aggro-anthem "Killing in the Name."

Scorpion Child "Liquor"

Excellent classic rock which borders on being a full-on summer anthem. And if you want to sing along, the lyrics are right there so you can join in.

Letlive "Banshee"

A lively rap and metal hybrid in this L.A. four-piece whose new album "The Blackest" is out on July 9.

What did you like most? Are Alice and Chains and Queensryche still on form? Let us know your reaction to this week's playlist in the comments.
