November is shaping to be a busy month for avid music buyers (you guys still exist, right?). Whether you're hitting your local record store every Tuesday or prefer the comfort of underwear iTunes shopping (the outside world is scary), there's no shortage of new releases that are worth your attention and dollar. Or if you're in the mood for some crushing rock anthems, are a big Community fan, or have been waiting for the re-emergence of some punk-loving hip-hoppers, there's something out there for you.
City Lights - In It To Win It
Fiesty gal power singer Katy Perry and Gym Class Heroes frontman Travis McCoy called it quits after exchanging promise rings and seemingly spending all of 2008 in love. Perry first appeared as an extra in Gym Class Heroes' "Cupid's Chokehold" video and a year-long relationship developed soon after.
Travi has been sending out break-up signals on his blog for some time now, especially the New Year's Eve post below that got tounges wagging. While Katy's career has flown to new heights in 2008 with the release of the cult smash "I Kissed a Girl," McCoy's album debuted to tepid reviews. Mid-December rumors of an engagement were squashed by the couple who has remained out of the limelight in recent weeks on vacation in Mexico. The two cite distance and the scrutiny of the spotlight as putting the nail in the coffin of their relationship.
