The April 2013 New Music Releases schedule features the first volley in the battle of former bandmates fighting for ownership of the same famous name.

Yes, of course we're talking about Queensryche. After singer Geoff Tate was kicked out of the group, the two camps went to court, only to hear a judge say that they could both operate under the Queensryche name - for now. So Tate's version of Queensryche is set to release 'Frequency Unknown' on April 23, with his former bandmates' effort expected to follow in June.

The month also sees the release of Deep Purple's long-awaited new album 'Now What?!,' from which we've already heard two new songs -- 'All the Time in the World' and 'Hell to Pay.'

You can also look forward to special Record Store Day exclusives from Bob Dylan, Paul McCartney and Cream, new albums from Todd Rundgren and the Stooges, and the usual wallet-draining assortment of re-issues and expanded editions. Happy shopping!
