Currently with only a debut album under their belt, ‘Lift Your Existence’, which was only released a few months ago, Night Verses are already making some considerable waves within the post-hardcore scene, especially for a band so early in their career. Whilst on the UK leg of their tour supporting letlive., we spoke with frontman Douglas Robinson about the album, the inspiration behind it, their work on album number two and more.

With the genre of hardcore consistently on the rise over the past few years, much like any other genre taking the same surge becomes saturated with bands almost imitating one another exactly. However, wade through them and you’ll come across some gems, one of which being Kent’s Feed The Rhino. Now, with two albums under their belt and a third on the way, we spoke with frontman Lee Tobin about how things have been going, where the band is heading and why you need to latch onto these guys sooner rather than later.

On the back of the release of ‘Infamous’ last November, Pennsylvania’s Motionless In White‘s popularity has swelled and burst all over Britain, resulting in their rather better-late-than-never headline tour to support the release selling several dates of the tour. Though the Manchester date may not be one of these sell-out shows, the Academy 2 venue is much larger than The Roadhouse venue they headlined last time they were here. We interviewed Ricky Horror and Devin Ghost before the show about the tour, their album and more:

Back in his home away from home that is the UK, DIY indie-rap artist MC Lars is on his own headline tour run to warm-up before his third consecutive appearance at this year’s Slam Dunk Festival. Whilst at one of his stops in Manchester, we headed down to The Ruby Lounge to speak him with him about his latest EP, what he likes to do whilst in the UK, future plans outside of writing/recording/performing music and more.

With their debut album ‘Bad Weather’ only a few short days old, a release that has been eagerly awaited by many in the hardcore scene, Woking’s Palm Reader are all set to celebrate with a slightly belated launch show at London’s The Old Blue Last. We headed to the show to have a chat with the guys about the album, how finally having it out there feels like “a good poo”, their upcoming slot at Download Festival and more.

The heights that Bedford’s Don Broco have ascended to over the past 12 months is almost unbelievable. The last headline show the band played in Manchester was the small The Roadhouse to just a handful of people. Now, the band have completely sold out Academy 2, a room tenfold in size to their last show there. We caught up with drummer Matt Donnelly and guitarist Simon Delaney to talk about their rise, their debut album ‘Priorities’, their work out/fitness regime, wanking out giant sperm (yeah, seriously) and more.

Huge forerunners of the ska punk genre, Reel Big Fish are now eight studio albums into their career and, despite falling from their mainstream major label days, the band have always held onto their underground die-hard fans. Always returning to the UK for headline tours at the beginning of the year, we jumped at the chance to speak with drummer Ryland Steen to talk about their latest record ‘Candy Coated Fury’, how the tour has been going, his favourite swear word and more.

When bands who are much more in the heavier spectrum of things, it’s often a very risky move to walk down the path of melodic hooks that were totally absent in the past. However, for The Ghost Inside, the risk most definitely paid off when they did just that with their latest full-length, ‘Get What You Give’. Whilst at the Manchester date of their UK tour support said record, we spoke with frontman Jonathan Vigil about their latest album, why they decided to take the melodic route, why they signed with Epitaph to release the album and more:

British metalcore outfit Bury Tomorrow have certainly been on the rise since the release of their sophomore record ‘The Union Of Crowns’ last July, securing many support slots, festival bookings and, most recently, a slot as main support for The Ghost Inside. We caught up with frontman Dani Winter-Bates shortly before the Manchester date of the tour to talk about the shows so far, work on their third full-length, covering Ricky Martin and more.

Some note them as the new Glassjaw, some note them even as one of the best live modern post-hardcore bands around today. Regardless, letlive. certainly are a band who carry passion and meaning through and through with their music. Whilst touring across the UK supporting Deftones, we caught up with the band to talk about their music, their upcoming yet-to-be-titled full-length, injuries they’ve sustained so far during their shows and more.
