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.

Regardless, letlive. certainly are a band who carry passion and meaning through and through with their music.

It seems already that 2013 has a lot in store for Arizona pop-rock five-piece, The Summer Set. The band have already wowed crowds and won over fans with their catchy new single, ‘Fuck U Over’, and have an upcoming studio album ‘Legendary’ soon to be released. It’s safe to say that you’ll be hearing a lot more from this band this year, and if you haven’t heard of them already, there’s no doubt that you will be. We caught up with singer, Brian Dales, before the band’s set with All Time Low in Glasgow to chat about the upcoming plans for the year and his super powers:

Bringing out a concept/rock opera themed album is a bold move, but to also bring out an accompanying feature length film to coincide with the release is a big stretch for any band, nevermind one as young as Hollywood’s Black Veil Brides. With both the album and film being releases for a few weeks and in the UK on the headline spot of the Kerrang! tour, we spoke with drummer Christian “CC” Coma about the releases, the narrative behind the album, how they’re finding the tour so far, plans for 2013 and more:
