How can I easily find out when my favorite bands release new albums?

I'm an avid music consumer and want to know when the bands I like (there are easily hundreds of them) release a new album.

I definitely don't
want to have to sign up to hundreds of mailing lists or follow dozens of different Web sites — I'm really looking for a single site that just lists new releases for bands I like.
A few years ago, I found Soundamus
which seemed like the perfect solution since it builds a customized RSS feed for you. In practice, I've found that most of what it lists are greatest hits albums, live albums, box sets, reissues or mixtapes. I'm really only interested in knowing when a band puts out an actual new studio album.
Is there something that fills the same need as Soundamus but without all the junk?
