Can’t Get “This Century” Out of my Head

For those of you who don’t already know Tuesday’s are typically when I post about news and insights about the music industry. Although I’m sure there is “breaking news” out there, my mind is elsewhere today. I can’t seem to get This Century’s latest album, “Sound of Fire” out of my head, which is why I am dedicating this #NewMusicTuesday post to them!
