LIVE: RX Bandits/Circa Survive/From Indian Lakes @ The Electric Ballroom

When we arrive just as From Indian Lakes are beginning their set, we fear the worst as the ample space the Electric Ballroom provides is sparsely populated. Tonight’s co-headliners comprise of a band who have been relegated to side-project status latterly in favour of their vocalist’s reunion with his former band, and a band whose […]

Popes Of Chillitown – ‘To The Moon’

Looking for the album to boost your serotonin levels over the summer months? Then look no further, Popes Of Chillitown with ‘To The Moon’ will have everyone running around in circles, ‘skanking’ the summer away. Sounding like the bastard child of Capdown and Skindred, POC have created a release that summarises why Ska Punk in […]

Storyteller – ‘A Place By Your Hopes’

You guys, The Story So Far are really, really popular. We can gauge this not just by looking at album sales figures or the increasing size of the venues at which they’re appearing on tour, but by the sheer number of carbon copy acts springing up in their considerable wake. If Neck Deep wear the […]

Citizen – ‘Everybody Is Going To Heaven’

It seems like only yesterday Citizen released their critically acclaimed debut ‘Youth’, which was filled with emotive lyrical musings over melodic punk sweetness, and there’s no denying it drew more than a few comparisons to a certain Long Island, NY band. In the two years that have passed in it’s wake, the climate of modern […]

Thomas Nicholas Band – ‘Security’

The name Thomas Nicholas may not be familiar to many, but he’s still instantly recognisable as the actor who played Kevin in the American Pie films, particularly to those who were in their teens at the same time as the characters on screen. And since 2008 Thomas has combined his acting, writing, directing, and producing, […]

Broadside – ‘Old Bones’

Many have claimed pop-punk as a genre had died over the years, but there sure is an abundance of it in 2015. With a yearly resurgence of similar-sounding bands each hating on their home town, drinking their weight in coffee, and proclaiming their undying love for their friends; it’s hard to pick out the good […]

AvaGrace – ‘Earth, Wind and Liars’

AvaGrace have been knocking about for a few years now, and have gained quite a bit of experience since their inception in 2011. This Kent quintet have shown off their talent in the form of their debut release ‘Letters to Home’, as well as sharing stages alongside Lower Than Atlantis, Mallory Knox, Dance Gavin Dance, […]

Breaking Tradition – ‘Vanity’

‘Vanity’ is the first proper release for Breaking Tradition, following on from the acoustic ‘Red Bank’ single in 2013, and it serves as the perfect introduction to them and their brand of heartfelt alternative rock. ‘Singing Arc’ is a suitably emotive introduction as it builds from a quiet and unassuming intro to a crescendo of […]

Coal Chamber – ‘Rivals’

Coal Chamber ended quite abruptly back in 2003, their very public disintegration a sign that things were not at all right. With their original line-up reformed, Coal Chamber have released their latest album ‘Rivals’, front man Dez Farara stating that a lot of metal sounds the same these days and for Coal Chamber, ‘it’s like […]

Going Away Party – ‘Going Away Party’

It is rare that at a relatively small level bands get to record their debut album and release it through a label, but that is exactly what Going Away Party have already achieved in their short time together. Their Self Titled album will be released through UK Punk Rock label Disconnect Disconnect Records, setting the […]
