LIVE: Ieperfest @ Ypres, Belgium

While everyone knows the larger scale festivals that take place in Belgium each year such as Groezrock, Pukkelpop, Graspop Metal Meeting and so on, one of the most highly respected is the comparatively small Ieperfest. Now in its 23rd year, having grown from a one day event into a three day festival, with 3 stages, […]

LIVE: Neck Deep @ Hippodrome, Kingston

Neck Deep have been in the US for 2 months on Warped Tour and today is their first day back. On Friday they released their sophomore album, the follow up to their debut ‘Wishful Thinking’, and tonight proves that Neck Deep are more than ready to maintain their status as one of the best UK […]

LIVE: Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes / Creeper / Polt Her Geist @ Borderline, London

There’s an odd juxtaposition in the way punk icon Frank Carter conducts himself on stage, as he wavers from obnoxious and violent to humble and welcoming in the switch of a strobe light. One moment he is involved in a rather unnecessary altercation with an overzealous fan, and the next he is encouraging his mother […]

LIVE: Korn @ O2 Academy, Brixton

Three US Presidents. Four British Prime Ministers. 9/11, 7/7 and the frankly inexplicable rebranding of Opal Fruits as Starburst. A lot has happened to the world since the release of KoRn’s self-titled début album in 1994, but you wouldn’t know that to glance around Brixton’s palatial O2 Academy this evening. Hell, the posters inside are even advertising an upcoming […]

LIVE: The Smith Street Band / Muncie Girls / Shit Present @ The Lexington, London

A Saturday night at The Lexington is never a quiet one. Before a band even step on stage the room is full to the brim and the floor already a little sticky. Let’s blame that on the frozen margaritas they serve downstairs. The line up tonight is a punk rock dream: The Smith Street Band […]

LIVE: NOFX / Alkaline Trio / Lagwagon / Gnarwolves @ Brixton Academy,

Having seen NOFX once before, albeit in a muddy field at Reading, I am both excited and weary of their polarising gig performances. Whilst I was growing up I was a huge fan of their attitude, style and music yet when I saw them once before, they were both exciting and incredible as well as […]

LIVE: The Gospel Youth / Rob Lynch / The Autumn Ravine / Spineless Yes Men @ The Black Heart, Camden

Brighton’s The Gospel Youth exploded onto the pop-rock scene last winter with the release of their single ‘Kids’. Headed by Samuel Little, they’ve been taking the music scene by storm, and are now pushing the boat out with the release of their latest EP, ‘Empires’. And with this release, comes a (day late) EP release […]

LIVE: Eva Plays Dead / Dirt / Derange / Past Ten Days @ Surya, London

Eva Plays Dead, a vibrant rock quartet from Derbyshire, have been raising £2000 via Pledge for the release of their gritty, biting EP ‘Sounds Of the Written Word’. And by the time they take to the stage at Surya, they’ve absolutely smashed their target. But first, Past Ten Days start the night off with their […]

LIVE: Jera On Air Festival 2015

This year was Jera On Air’s twenty-third instalment and despite the very soggy start, things still went off with one hell of a bang. Jera On Air is based in the village of Ysselsteyn, in the south of the Netherlands. The festival is pretty intimate, opening its gates to around six thousand festival-goers over two […]

LIVE: Hindsights / Prawn / Brightr / Kid Brother @ Bowery District, Reading

If you’re familiar with the emo/melodic-hardcore scene, you will know much of a ruckus Hindsights have been causing since the recent release of their full-length in ‘Cold Walls/Cloudy Eyes’.  And if you’re familiar with Hindsights, then you will know they are Berkshire-based, therefore this special hometown show was shaping up to be, well, special. The […]
