As the holiday season approaches, bands and record labels start digging into the archives for both new and classic releases.

A Perfect Circle will release their 'Three Sixty' compilation CD on Nov. 19, which contains 'By and Down,' the first new track from the act in nearly a decade. Maynard James Keenan and Billy Howerdel also combine gems from APC's three studio albums.

Five Finger Death Punch are one of the few bands releasing new material in November. 'The Wrong Side of Heaven and the Righteous Side of Hell, Volume 2' will see a Nov. 19 release. Lamb of God will also release a CD this November. The 10th anniversary edition of 'As the Palaces Burn' will hit shelves on Nov. 12.

November will also be ripe with DVD's. Dream Theater are set to release their 'Live at Luna Park' DVD, while Black Sabbath's 'Live… Gathered in Their Masses' DVD will also drop during the month. Epica, Rush and Jimi Hendrix DVD's will also become available throughout November.
