When it’s a hot day in Chicago, we find the best way to cool off is with some icy beer and a few new albums. That pretty much explains our latest episode of Rock it Out! Blog’s Listening Party, in which host Sami Jarroush invited Consequence of Sound staffers Nick Freed and Justin Gerber into the cold confines of his living room to discuss the newest releases from Avenged Sevenfold, Franz Ferdinand, and John Frusciante. While they debate, let us know your thoughts on these albums in our comment section down below. Who knows? If your opinion is good enough, we may invite you to the next Listening Party!
