In Stores Now And Coming Soon: New LPs From Black Sabbath, Murderdolls, Andy Dick, Clipse & More

Everything new is old again as Black Sabbath’s Past Lives, a double live album of ’70s material, hits shelves Tuesday (August 20). The LP features such classics as “Sweet Leaf,” “War Pigs” and “Iron Man” in addition to the haunting “Symptom of the Universe” and the 10-minute “Megalomania.”

Rocker girls Sleater-Kinney release One Beat, the follow-up to 2000′s All Hands on the Bad One, while the Murderdolls, a side project of guitarists Joey Jordison of Slipknot and Tripp Eisen of Static X, exhume their raucously macabre Beyond the Valley of the Murderdolls.

The Black Crowes also offer up a live double album, appropriately entitled Live. Finally, comedian Andy Dick and his band the Bitches of the Century are sure to win over fans with endearing tunes such as “Love Ninja (The Stalker Song),” “C–k & B—s,” and “I’ll F— Anything That Moves.” No way, Andy!
