It’s been a long time coming, around three years infact, that London lads The One Hundred put out any new music following their debut EP ‘Subculture’, which dropped way back in the summer of 2014. Since then, it seems the band have been almost consistently touring. Only now, with full-length ‘Chaos + Bliss’ on the way, have the band managed to find time to collect themselves, and head out on the first headline UK tour of their own.

Few bands within heavy music receive as much acclaim, and on the flip side have been through as much turmoil over their career, as that of Deftones. Eight albums and nearly 30 years deep, the Californian outfit have managed to maintain their relevance by forever being innovative and refreshing, and, with latest album ‘Gore’ being no different, the band are back in the UK for a quick handful of dates with them now coming towards the end of the album’s cycle.

About 4 years ago, Floridian post-hardcore favourites Underoath completed the final show of their farewell tour. The band decided to throw in the towel, putting to bed a 15-year long career, with little sign that a reunion would ever come to fruition. Come 2017, not only are they back, but they’re back in the UK for the first time in over 6 years.

In today’s climate, it’s not all that often that bands who aren’t at it full-time can last to see a decade long career, nevermind celebrate the tenth anniversary of a release. Alas, British progressive metal darlings Devil Sold His Soul have reached this pinnacle milestone with their debut ‘A Fragile Hope’, and what better way to celebrate such an achievement than hitting the road?

Steadily rearing their way to the front of the UK metalcore elite over the years, especially since the release of fourth album ‘Earthbound’ last January, Bury Tomorrow have managed to establish quite a name for themselves. So much so that they’re now hitting the road for what is their biggest headline tour on homeland soil to date to promote it.

You Me At Six have been going from strength-to-strength for the last ten years as a band. Their last album, ‘Cavalier Youth’, achieved for them their very first UK number one record, and laid a marker down for British rock music. Since then, the band have been lying low for a while, and the hype around seems to have died down slightly. With the release of ‘Night People’ and a shift towards a more indie rock sound, the band have found themselves headlining the second stage at this year’s Reading & Leeds Festival. But first, here’s their headline tour of the UK.

Illinois’ Real Friends are a band with such a loyal and dedicated fan base, and that’s never been more apparent over the length of this rescheduled tour. Despite no new material or full UK run since sophomore LP ‘The Home Inside My Head’ dropped last May, the whole tour is near enough sold out and there’s a sheer sense of excitement in the air. Plus, tonight’s show is on a boat, so, that’s always fun.

The rise of Southampton based gothic punks Creeper over the past few years has been nothing but captivating. Over the space of a total of three EPs, the band have ascended to mass popularity, critical acclaim from both the industry and the punk rock fanbase, secured a deal with Roadrunner Records, and even expanded their sound by evolving from a quintet to a sextet. Now, here we are, at the sold out first show of their biggest UK tour to date.

Starting their story with the humble beginnings of high school, aged around 15/16 years old, All Time Low managed to get the formula right pretty early on in their careers. It’s been since their 2005 EP ‘Put Up Or Shut Up’ that they’ve been rising stars in the world of pop-rock/pop-punk, and here we are in 2017 with album seven on the way, and it looks like they still have a firm stranglehold on the genre.
