The list of April 2015 New Music Releases is a bit longer than a typical month. But then again, not every month has Record Store Day, which happens on April 18.

That day will see limited-edition, vinyl-only releases from such luminaries as Paul McCartney, Bruce Springsteen, Robert Plant and Bob Dylan. These range from 7" singles and EPs to colored vinyl, reissues of classic albums and new compilations. You can see them all listed below.

As for the rest of the month, the pickings may seem slight, but there are still brand new albums from Brian Wilson and Randy Bachman. There's also a vinyl reissue of Rush's A Farewell to Kings and a collection of radio broadcasts from Guns N' Roses.

Here’s a full list of April’s new classic rock releases. Click on the highlighted titles to learn more about many of these records and videos. Don’t forget to check out our updated list of 2015 New Music Releases to look back on all of the great classic rock albums, videos and books that came out this year.
