Welcome to this week's roundup of new music from across the internet.Kings of Leon are back, which means the radio will soon be pumped full of their next generation of hits (and whether you like the band or not, all that rock on the airwaves is a good thing). Pearl Jam and Queensryche have new tracks too, but as usual it's the alternative bands who sometimes have the most interesting new music. Check them out below.
Kings of Leon "Supersoaker"
The Kings of modern rock are back with their new album "Mechanical Bull" on September 24. "The pressure was really off. We were our own bosses there were no bills because we bought the studio ourselves; there was no timeframe when it had to be done by," says guitarist Matthew Followill. Sounds like it paid off.
Pearl Jam "Mind your Manners"
UG readers are currently voting on their favorite Pearl Jam song ever - will this one have a chance of making the top 10? Maybe not, but it's great to see the band return with new music.
This is the Todd La Torre fronted version of the band. (Who else is seriously tired of all that battle over the name?) La Torre proves he's a worthy frontman for the band, even if he does sound ridiculously similar to Geoff Tate.
Moreland & Arbuckle "Tall Boogie"
Excellent blues rock. There's nothing like a massive drum sound tinged with overdriven vocals and guitar.
Reuben Archer's Personal Sin "Play My Rock 'n' Roll"
There's some massive guitar work on this track, props to Stampede guitarist Rob Wolverson who plays on this one. Wow.
