Technical rock 4-piece InMe weren’t always so technical and advanced with their songs, look back at their first two albums ‘Overgrown Eden’ and ‘White Butterfly’ and you’ll notice a significant difference between their work back then and what they’re producing today. With their ‘Best Of…’ recently released they promoted with a tour playing all their past albums entirely on certain dates, we managed to get a hold of them in Manchester playing ‘White Butterfly’, and had a chat to them about their favourite album of theirs to play, how the idea of the tour came about, and what direction their fifth album will take them in…

Concept-driven progressive rockers Coheed & Cambria have been following a story with all their past releases, following two characters who are funnily enough called Coheed and the other Cambria. Their last effort ‘Year Of The Black Rainbow’ released earlier this year was the final installment in the main story of frontman Claudio Sanchez‘s Armory Wars, and so we thought we’d see what the future holds for the New York-based quartet. Bassist Michael Todd shared with us how he’s finding the current tour with Deftones, plans for the band perhaps throwing a festival in 2011, and his love for video games like Rock Band and Guitar Hero…

Claimed in his own words as a “terrible band name”, Job For A Cowboy drummer Jon ‘The Charn’ Rice had a little talk with us before the band’s show in Manchester during their November 2010 UK tour, and told us about the reason behind their goat character/mascot, his favourite music video they’ve created so far, his feelings about the chart position of most recent album ‘Ruination’, and the band’s plans of releasing an EP and album in 2011 too…

Naming themselves after the location of the infamous Jack The Ripper and his killings, Whitechapel are known as one of the heaviest young bands on the scene today. With their recent studio album ‘A New Era Of Corruption’ released earlier in the year reaching in the top 50 spots of the Billboard 200 charts, we decided to have a chat with guitarist Alex Wade during their support slot supporting Job For A Cowboy in Manchester, and asked him if they’ve ever visited the place they take their name from, why they utilise three guitarists, and his personal favourite album of theirs…

INTERVIEW: A Day To Remember (05/11/2010)

With a new A Day To Remember album on the verge of hitting our ears in the next few days, we thought it’d a perfect time to find out exactly what there is to expect from ‘What Seperates From You’, aslong as finding out what else the band have planned following its release. Guitarist Kevin Skaff took a moment of his time to reply to our email and answer our questions:

Joining onto 2010’s Never Say Die! tour as one of the artist with the longest career on the line-up, Californian metalcore act Bleeding Through have a respected history and back catalogue, and of course a pretty dedicated fanbase to boot. During the Manchester (and also final UK) date of the tour, we decided to catch up with the band’s guitarist Dave Nassie to talk about a couple of different things, including his favourite band to watch on the tour, the band’s plans for 2011, and how the band usually go about writing a song…

Originality is something pretty hard and rare to come by within any music scene today, but thankfully it does exist if you look in the right places. Devil Sold His Soul are one of the most innovative and creative underground metal bands in Britain today, and with their recent album ‘Blessed & Cursed’ they really raised the bar. DEAD PRESS! got a hold of drummer Lek Woods and vocalist Ed Gibbs to talk about the album, what their favourite type of shows to play are, and how they feel playing on the Architects UK tour.

Rising from small name boys to a big named British metalcore act with their 2009 album ‘Hollow Crown’, Brighton’s Architects are bombarding the UK on a tour where most of the dates have been sold out. Sold out shows make for a good show most of the time, especially when you’re the tour headliners. Due to their recent great success, we decided to catch up with guitarist Tom Searle to discuss the tour, news on their upcoming album ‘The Here And Now’, and what they have planned for what could be their biggest year yet – 2011!

Over a year on from their last album ‘Shallow Life’, one of Italy’s most successful metal bands Lacuna Coil are taking one last headline touring stint to promote the album before recording and releasing a follow-up record to it. During the UK leg of the European tour, the band made their first visit to Stoke-on-Trent to play a show, and as we were in the area we thought we’d catch up with the Italian gothic metallers. During this interview with vocalist Andrea Ferro and guitarist Cristiano Migliore, we discussed the summing up of the band’s career so far, progress on the forthcoming album, and how they compare UK shows with shows elsewhere in the world…

On a co-headlining tour across the UK with TRC, Watford’s Lower Than Atlantis have had a busy year following the release of their album ‘Far Q’ back in March. From their debut ‘Bretton’ the band have taken on a more accessible hardcore punk sound which has worked well in their favour, and the band are already working on the next record to follow. We caught up with frontman Mike Duce before their set at The Sugarmill in Stoke and talked about the forthcoming record, how’re they’re feeling about tours to follow, and sticking things up his bum…
