LIVE: Muse / Marmozets @ Newport Centre, Wales

The venue for tonight’s show is perhaps the best mid-size venue in Wales. The Newport Centre holds around 2000 people but feels a hell of a lot smaller. It’s far too small for a band of Muse’s size, which is not a complaint but rather a nod towards knowing that as soon as you walk […]

LIVE: Less Than Jake / Yellowcard @ Koko, London

With both Yellowcard and Less Than Jake sharing equal set time, there really isn’t much competition between the two, although it’s fair to say the majority of the crowd are certainly here for Less Than Jake. As the stage darkens, a single spotlight shines upon Yellowcard violinist Sean Mackin, as he delicately plays the hauntingly beautiful introduction […]

LIVE: Terror / Knuckledust / Redemption Denied @ The Underworld, London

Hardcore is undoubtedly one of the few subgenres of punk that has predominantly remained unsullied for the last 30 years. While there are trends, and hype bands sometimes nestled within it, the bands and the supporters that stay true to the real essence of hardcore keep the candle burning and allow it to stay exciting […]

LIVE: Hostage Calm / Into It. Over It @ Schubas Tavern, Chicago

Pop punk scene darlings Hostage Calm announced this fall that they would be disbanding, much to the dismay of many. Since their formation in 2007, HC have taken their fans on a journey that has been one part sonic and one part intellectual, stretching the limits of what we as listeners define as punk. From […]

LIVE: Don Broco / We Are The In Crowd / Young Guns / Bury Tomorrow / Beartooth @ The Forum, London

Each year, there is one tour that kicks off the year in style , consistently booking the next big thing. This year, Kerrang booked a 5 band bill, all very young in their band’s life cycle. Yet all 5 show that they have the potential to be that break out band. First up are Beartooth, […]

LIVE: Fort Hope / Dead! @ The Borderline 

Fort Hope are a band that are creating quite a storm at the moment, having gained an almighty amount of praise for their latest EP release, as well as backing from the giants at Radio 1, selling out London’s Borderline was just another check box for the band to tick. But could they live up to […]

LIVE: Papa Roach / Coldrain / The One Hundred @ Roundhouse, London

This is a slightly smaller tour than previous ones undertaken by America’s heavyweights Papa Roach, but the fact remains that they are an incredible band, both in the studio and on stage. Tonight to celebrate #ThrowbackThursday, they’ve decided to play their 2000 debut album ‘Infest’ in full. For the first time ever… Opening the proceedings […]

LIVE: The Used / Landscapes / Decade @ KOKO, London

Ever since their appearance at Download Festival last summer, Utah alternative veterans The Used have been pleasantly surprising crowds with their cobweb free performances. Despite widely reported claims of a mid-career slump, the four-piece have discarded the shackles and proved themselves to be back on form. Their resurgence has led them to the beautiful and […]

LIVE: Architects / Every Time I Die @ Motion, Bristol

Tonight Motion – an old converted skate park that usually houses big name DJs – is playing host to one of metal’s finest line ups. British metal titans Architects have managed to completely pack this huge room out, with the help of support bands Every Time I Die and Blessthefall. It’s a truly magnificent thing […]

LIVE: Takedown 2015 @ University of Southampton

Spread across various venues at the University of Southampton’s Highfield Campus, Takedown Festival will be immediately familiar to anyone who has ventured to Leeds or Hatfield for Slam Dunk. Undoubtedly inspired by the latter, it may be easy to unfairly dismiss Takedown as its little brother. Despite perhaps not boasting the crowd pleasing heavy-hitters, Southampton’s […]
