September 2022 New Music Releases
Osbourne's upcoming album Patient Number 9 is an all-star affair featuring Jeff Beck, Eric Clapton, Zakk Wylde, Metallica's Robert Trujillo, Guns N’ Roses’ Duff McKagan and Osbourne's Black Sabbath bandmate Tony Iommi, among others. The Sick, the Dying ... and the Dead! was recorded at Dave Mustaine's home studio in Nashville and marks Megadeth's first album since Dystopia in 2016.
Ringo Starr's latest four-song collection, called EP3, again features longtime collaborator Steve Lukather of Toto. Elsewhere, Sammy Hagar and the Circle are back with the first album of new material since their 2019 debut, Space Between.
September's live projects include 1970 recordings from Creedence Clearwater Revival at London’s Royal Albert Hall, presented in both audio and visual formats. Kiss' Off the Soundboard: Live in Des Moines 1977 is next in an official live bootleg series that includes Live in Virginia Beach from 2004 and Tokyo 2001.
Major reissues include a sprawling Kinks box set celebrating the 50th anniversaries of 1971’s Muswell Hillbillies and 1972’s Everybody's in Show-Biz - Everybody's a Star. Pink Floyd's Animals was belatedly completed following disagreements over liner notes and a reported struggle to find enough material to complete the set. Motorhead's fifth album Iron Fist also receives a 40th-anniversary reissue, with bonus tracks, studio demos and unreleased live footage.
