LIVE: State Champs / Knuckle Puck / ROAM @ O2 Islington Academy, London

It’s pretty much the pop-punk tour we’ve been waiting most of the year for, and finally New York outfit State Champs have made their way to the UK for the first ever headline tour, something which seems a bit of an odd fact for a band about to drop their second album. Joining them on […]

LIVE: Between The Buried And Me / Haken @ Camden Electric Ballroom

Haken kicked things off to rapturous applause; the Electric Ballroom bursting at the seams with people eager to catch this energetic Mars Volta meets Boy Hits Car sensation that are causing a stir both in the UK and around the globe. Vocalist Ross Jennings is a refreshing sight on stage, his tightly bound and veracious […]

LIVE: Butserfest 2015

Set in a country park just thirty minutes from Portsmouth is a Festival with an attitude, no drink, no drugs, just a whole lot of fun. Now in its ninth year, Butserfest aims to bring the younger generation the best in alternative music and prove that you don’t need substances to make your day enjoyable. […]

A Drunken Stumble Through My First Awesome Fest

Labor Day is upon us again and although I would’ve loved to have spent the long weekend suffering through a sunburnt and sand all over my body while at an overly crowded beach, I decided to spend it sunburnt and damn near shitfaced in sunny and beautiful North Park San Diego. This isn’t my first […]

LIVE: Creeper / Hindsights / Ghost Cub @ Old Blue Last, London

“This is our first show. Well – technically, it’s our second practice.” Ghost Cub vocalist, guitarist and general creative force Neil Kennedy might be smiling as he addresses a sold-out Old Blue Last, but he’s not joking. An underground super-group of sorts, the Southampton quintet are tearing through a brief set of songs that most […]

LIVE: Reading Festival [Sunday]

It’s an early start on The Pit for up-and-coming atmosphere makers Black Foxxes. That doesn’t stop their blend of Brand New-esque melodies and heart wrenching vocals enveloping the modest tent, drawing in some weary passers-by with the music’s sheer beauty. Despite their niche sound, we’d wager that this is the last time Black Foxxes will […]

LIVE: Reading Festival [Saturday]

Cobwebs. What cobwebs? Any reveller that might have been feeling a little tender early on the Saturday morning is quick to have it shaken off by Japanese phenomenon, Babymetal. Sitting somewhere between brilliant and fundamentally creepy, the trio are the biggest spectacle of the weekend – and rightly so. Whether the music is to everyone’s […]

LIVE: Reading Festival [Friday]

As Reading and Leeds Festival open their gates to tens of thousands of revellers at each site, the all-important weather subsides to allow a glimmer of sunshine in what has been an otherwise ferociously wet week. Tales of knee-deep mud are instantly debunked as excited fans gather at the various stages across the sites. Overdressed […]

LIVE: Bring Me the Horizon / SHVPES @ Rose Theatre, Kingston

When Bring Me the Horizon announced an intimate show at the 900-capacity Rose Theatre in Kingston, Banquet Records saw tickets sell out in a record six minutes. But it’s not surprising considering the hype surrounding the Sheffield quintet at the moment. The handful of tracks that they’ve released from their upcoming album ‘That’s the Spirit’ […]

LIVE: Deafheaven / Marriages @ The Scala, London

In recent years, there have been few bands in the world of metal that divide opinion quite like Deafheaven. Their 2013 album ‘Sunbather’ was a glorious blend of lush shoegaze, and vitriolic black metal that polarized fans on either end of the spectrum. Regardless, it would become one of the most critically acclaimed albums of […]
