No, I'm not talking about the new 3-on-3 Basketball League founded by Ice Cube, although that has my attention, but rather 3 big name Alternative Buffalo artists who will be dropping new albums in July.  

Here's a preview of what you should be on the lookout for:

1. Cage The Elephant - Unpeeled.  Veterans of the #Kerfuffle 2014 stage, Cage the Elephant will be dropping their new album Unpeeled in stores on July 28th.  The twenty-one track album was inspired by a 9 city acoustic tour that the band did earlier in 2017, and will contain live versions of Cage classics like "Take It or Leave It", "Back Against The Wall" & "Cigarette Daydreams". Plus some new material, including this stellar cover of the Wreckless Erik Classic "Whole Wide World".

2. Arcade Fire - Everything Now.  Our Canadian friend’s new album will be their fifth, and their first new effort since they released their Grammy nominated Reflektor in 2013.  This will be their first album on Columbia Records and lands in stores July 28th.  Check out the title track here.

3. Foster The People - Sacred Hearts Club.  well, It's been 3 years since Foster The People’s last full length album Supermodel and hot off the presses are details on their 3rd studio album.  Sacred Hearts Club will be dropping in stores on July 21st.  Here's the track list for the upcoming LP:
