INTERVIEW: The So So Glos (22/07/2016)

The New York music scene has been hugely influential to the punk and hardcore ethics we see in today’s music, and Brooklyn based The So So Glos have are taking that DIY attitude and creating their own storm in the city.

INTERVIEW: Despised Icon (02/05/2016)

Few bands within death metal today are as revered and loved as Montreal’s Despised Icon, and it’s even more of rarity to see that such a level of admiration and devotion not only solidifies, but swells and grows since the band announced their plans to go on an indefinite hiatus back in 2010. Four years later, the Canadian heavy hitters returned for a few one-off reunion shows, and then some album anniversary dates the following year.

Now, in 2016, though not fully returned in the respect of a full-time touring band, Despised Icon are officially back for good. Not only that, but they double-slap surprised us with news of a brand new album to drop in July, titled ‘Beast’, which no doubt is going to provide exactly what it says on the tin.

INTERVIEW: Zoax (19/04/2016)

Forming from patches of defunct (or, at the time, soon to be defunct) bands back in 2013, the rise of London alt rockers Zoax until recently has been a steady yet certainly notable climb. Already the band have several festival appearances under their belts, two well received EPs (the latest of which making it to #4 in our list of 2015’s best EPs), and currently opening up each date of what will be Funeral For A Friend‘s final ever tour before packing it in and calling it a day. Not only this, but the band are set to turn those tides of success into crashing tsunami sized waves with the release of their eagerly awaited self-titled debut album next month. We thought it only fitting to have a wee chinwag with frontman Adam Carroll to talk about sharing the stage with FFAF for their closing performances, what their album is going to bring us, and why we should shut up and pay attention to them.

INTERVIEW: Counterfeit (18/04/2016)

Emerging out of nowhere in 2015, Jamie Campbell Bower has lead Counterfeit into selling out venues all over Europe after releasing just their debut EP, ‘Come Get Some’. Their brand of care-free rock ‘n’ roll has been key in their rise to success in such a short time, and 2016 has the promise to rocket them into one of the UK’s top forces.

We caught up with the band about their upcoming dates, and the story behind their latest single, ‘Enough’.
