LIVE: As It Is / Hindsights @ Camden Barfly, London

As It Is confirm themselves as the next big thing… Pop Punk is a vibrant genre. Popularized by bands like Green Day and Blink-182 in the 90s, championed by New Found Glory and driven into the mainstream by Fall Out Boy and Paramore in the 00’s, its one of those genres which most kids first […]

LIVE: Lower Than Atlantis/ We Are The Ocean/ PVRIS @ Y Plas, Cardiff

Tonight is the first night of tour for Lower Than Atlantis, We Are The Ocean and PVRIS, and the atmosphere is suitably rowdy for such a great line up. There’s been a lot of hype around this tour, and tonight that hype is completely and utterly justified. First up are PVRIS: this is their first […]

Samoans / Enquiry / Mayors of Toronto / Pocket Apocalypse @ The Flapper, Birmingham

Four band shows are usually hit or miss affairs, often due to the vast differences in musical styles. Rarely do you get four bands on one bill that have the laser sighted focus that promoters Little Cavalier managed to muster up for a night of Math Rock wonders at the Flapper in Birmingham, and boy […]

LIVE: ZOAX / Dead! / Press To Meco @ Barfly, London

In London’s Camden Barfly, this particular warm Monday evening has generated quite a buzz. Both the headliners and main support have been drawing attention over the last few months, with each promising a spectacle to behold. Press To Meco fight through some frustrating technical issues (“this corner must be cursed,” jokes the clearly irked lead […]

LIVE: Sleeping With Sirens / Pierce The Veil / Issues @ The Forum, London

  For a band to accomplish a ‘world tour’ in this day and age is really something of an achievement, as such travels are usually left to the popstars. But, having dominated their home in the US and Europe, now it was time for Sleeping With Sirens and Pierce The Veil to conquer the British […]

LIVE: Modern Life Is War / Birds In Row / Terrible Feelings / Swan Song @ The Underworld, London

There are very few hardcore punk bands that have a connection to their fans like Modern Life Is War. The closest comparison would maybe be the adoration for American Nightmare, but Modern Life Is War are still in a league of their own when it comes to having such an impact on people within hardcore. […]

LIVE: Blitz Kids @ Boston Music Rooms, London

It’s difficult to believe that it’s been well over a year since Blitz Kids’ album ‘The Good Youth’ was released and in the time since its release they’ve travelled around the UK and Europe, as well as a recent stint in the US for SXSW. Now, as they bring the album cycle towards it’s end, […]

LIVE: Young Guns / Blitz Kids @ The Fleece, Bristol

Young Guns have been away for some time now – touring the US, making their new album ‘Ones and Zeros’ – and so this is their first UK headline tour since the end of 2012. This is the first set of shows, before they take a ‘break’ to tour the US, and then they’ll be […]

Live: Modern Baseball/Into It. Over It./Tiny Moving Parts @ The Dome, London

As far as co-headline tours go, Modern Baseball and Into It. Over It. together is pretty high up the list of top double shows for 2015. After a run in Europe, the tour finally reaches the UK, with the bands set to play multiple sold out shows, including tonight’s at Tufnell Park. The Dome is […]

LIVE: Four Year Strong / Hit The Lights / Forever Came Calling / Light You Up @ Electric Ballroom, London

There’s a distinctive buzz enveloping Camden’s Electric Ballroom early on tonight, as the Pure Noise Records backdrop dominates the seductively lit stage. The return to UK shores of heavy pop-punk powerhouse Four Year Strong alone is enough to push excitement to fever pitch, yet their surprisingly varied array of supports help to really get pulses […]
