Milk Teeth – ‘Sad Sack’

If you are already familiar with Milk Teeth, then you will know exactly what the band are about and the aesthetic of these young UK punks. Their sound draws heavily on influence from 90’s grunge and alt-rock, with a strong punk sensibility about it, and over the course of the last two years their profile […]

LIVE: Enter Shikari / ROAM @ The Rose Theatre, Kingston

Enter Shikari have been about for 12 years, bothering the charts with all three of their previous albums. Tonight marks the start of the 4th phase of their band. Normally, The Rose Theatre in Kingston is used to host children’s plays and serious theatre shows. Tonight it’s invaded by music fans ready to welcome back one […]

Papa Roach – ‘F.E.A.R.’

California’s Papa Roach are almost as old as their current fanbase now. Entering their 22nd year of life as a band, they’ve set about releasing their 8th album, which in this day and age, is a feat in itself. Having been through a bit of a career renaissance following their last release ‘The Connection’, this […]

Light You Up – ‘All We’ve Ever Known’

Pop-punk is a heavily saturated genre at the best of times, but Light You Up have been working hard to make themselves heard above the masses. Not only have they shared stages with the likes of The Wonder Years, State Champs, and A Loss For Words (whose singer Matty Arsenault guests on the album) but […]

Tim Barry ‘Lost & Rootless’

The singer/songwriter thing is what a lot of members of punk bands are doing to spiral off and try something different with their work, and we’ve seen it a lot in recent years; Chuck Ragan and Dave Hause are two that spring immediately to mind. Tim Barry is from Richmond, Virginia, and as most folks […]

Enter Shikari – ‘The Mindsweep’

The fourth album from St Albans’ fearsome four-piece Enter Shikari might be their most divisive album in their 12 year lifespan. Some of the casual fans aren’t in agreement with the political stance the band put out on their songs, though this is what makes them stand out. Having always defied the genres of music […]

Bring Me The Horizon / Young Guns / Issues / Sleepwave @ Wembley Arena

Friday, the 5th December. The day Bring Me The Horizon delivered on their promise to become one of the biggest bands in the UK. But first, Sleepwave, Spencer Chamberlain’s newest venture. Opening at the modest time of 6.45, they set the tone with a very bassy set. Chamberlain’s showmanship shines through, and shows why they’re […]

 Storm The Sky – ‘Permanence’

If there’s one thing that Australians do well, it’s their music scene. For years they have been churning out the best new bands this world has to offer, everyone from Tonight Alive, to I Killed The Prom Queen, Parkway Drive and some band called 5 Seconds of Summer (hey, love them or hate them, y’all […]

Atlas Losing Grip – ‘Currents’

‘Currents’ acts as a turning point for Swedish heavy metal and punk crossovers Atlas Losing Grip. It simultaneously marks the end of a significant period in the band’s history and the start of the next chapter. Recorded and mastered prior to the departure of vocalist Rodrigo Alfaro, the eventual product still sees his voice fronting each […]

LIVE: Lost Years, Still Alive, La Armada, A Wilhelm Scream @ Subterranean, Chicago

When I heard that one of my favorite local bands (Lost Years) was opening for one of my favorite national bands (A Wilhelm Scream)–around New Year’s, no less–I was severely stoked. So, I saved some New Year’s cheer, put it in my back pocket, and patiently waited to ring in 2015 right, jumping around and […]
