Forthcoming vinyl releases (April – June 2017)

By in Features



Your essential album release calendar.

While we flag up the best new vinyl releases for you on a weekly basis, it’s sometimes nice to know a little further in advance what you might want to save your pocket money for.

What follows is a loosely curated list of forthcoming vinyl releases from across a range of genres, labels and artists we believe worthy of your time.

For the sake of our own sanity (and yours) the list below includes only new albums. That means no 12″s or 7″s and only the odd exception when it comes to reissues and compilations. The calendar corresponds to UK release dates accurate at time of publication (early April), but the fluid nature of vinyl releases means some of these are liable to change. The list will be updated on a monthly basis.

Finally, all exclusive releases for Record Store Day, which takes place on the 22nd April have been excluded from this list, although you can find those titles here.
