Just because we’re spending a month looking back at the past doesn’t mean we’re ignoring what’s happening right now. Same time, same place this week for WTTS New Music Monday, and new releases abound. The first from Green Day’s upcoming album trilogy, the return of both Blues Traveler and The Killers, and more from Dave Matthews Band.

Deeper tracks from The Lumineers, Alabama Shakes, and Jason Mraz, plus a whole lot more. All of this at 7pm, during an hour of all-new World Class Rock on WTTS New Music Monday.
