Starting this week, you can pre-order some great new music by Epiphone artists. 12-12-12 The Concert for Sandy Relief featuring Paul McCartney, the Rolling Stones, the Who, Bruce Springsteen, and many others will be out in January but you can lock up your copy today. Also, the vinyl re-release of Otis Rush's seminal album Right Place, Wrong Time, is coming out early next year and deserves a spot in every collection.  And last but not least, the Pogues's 30th Anniversary concert at the Olympia in Paris is out now on cd and vinyl. Shane and the Pogues are in fine form as ever.

Don't forget the new My Chemical Romance single, "The World Is Ugly," from their series Conventional Weapons, is out today. Look for the next single, "Kiss the Ring," January 8, 2013. The  new album should be out next summer.
