New & Noteworthy is a weekly column in which we highlight some of the newest rock and metal releases coming out each week. This week features new music from Revocation, Beartooth, and more! Be sure to check out the last week’s New & Noteworthy for what all came out last Friday. If you want to see last week’s sales numbers, you can read about those in Metal by Numbers. Thrice debuted at #7, and apparently I missed that two weeks ago the newest Alter Bridge live album debuted at #1 (in the Classical section)!
