There is no need to explain who Pink Floyd is. Sure, their prime years were back in the 60’s and 70’s but as members of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and having been named as one of the most influential and successful bands of all time, there is no doubt that their name is not unheard of. Which is why the news of a new album, set to be released in October of this year, from this psychedelic rock band comes as an awesome surprise to us all. The news of this new album, which is to be called “The Endless River“, was first released by guitarist/vocalist David Gilmour’s wife via twitter. The album is said to be based on the “Swan Song” by Wright and will feature all unreleased unheard songs by the band.

Along with this new album, Pink Floyd just recently released an anniversary box set of their album “The Division Bell“, which included a blu-ray copy of their latest film Marooned, a previously unheard of surround sound mix and 2 LP vinyls featuring full length tracks.
