Record Store Day, with its scores of exclusive releases, dominates our list of April 2018 New Music Releases. But that doesn't mean the rest of the month sits empty.

The Dead Daisies' Burn It Down, a 10-track follow-up to Make Some Noise from 2016, finds former Journey drummer Deen Castronovo debuting alongside John Corabi, Doug Aldrich, Marco Mendoza and David Lowy. Foreigner recast some of their biggest fan favorites in a new musical light on Foreigner With the 21st Century Symphony Orchestra & Chorus. Elsewhere, Spinal Tap bassist Derek Smalls is set to release his first solo album. We'll also get one more chance to hear the late Chris Cornell. He's one of more than a dozen artists who appears on Johnny Cash: Forever Words, a new album of songs based on previously unpublished poems and other writings.

Then there are dozens and dozens of great things arriving for Record Store Day. Beyond that, be on the look out for a robust group of concert recordings and some key reissues.

Dokken's short run of reunion dates with their classic lineup are commemorated on a new CD/DVD/Blu-ray package. King Crimson's Live in Vienna 2016, recorded in Austria on Dec. 1 of that year, was previously available only in Japan as part of a box set. One of the Who's most consistently bootlegged appearances will be officially released as Live at the Fillmore East 1968. Ritchie Blackmore's 2017 concerts with Rainbow are showcased on Memories in Rock II. Toto's Columbia years are remembered in a new box set, and there's a four-disc 50th anniversary of Love's classic 1967 album Forever Changes on the way.

More information on these and other rock releases can be found below. And remember to follow our continuously updated list of 2018 New Music Releases for details on music issued throughout the year.
