Well, 2017 has been one hell of a year for Loathe. Just last year they signed with SharpTone Records, having only been a band for about a year at the time, and then this April dropped their debut album, ‘The Cold Sun’. With acclaim both inside and outside of the UK, they’ve been turning heads, and now, they’re beginning to portray their concepts and vision on their own tours, and tonight headlining Manchester for the second time.

It’s rare to see a band continue to soar and yet to peak more than 20 years into their career, especially when they reside in a genre that’s as abrasive and an acquired of a taste as extreme metal. Yet, come the release of seventh album ‘The Anthropocene Extinction’ in 2015, Cattle Decapitation put out their most successful record to date, and are back in the UK once again heading up the Hell On Earth tour.

The last time that The Number 12 Looks Like You were performing on UK shores was back in 2009, whilst supporting Misery Signals. Unquestionably things behind-the-scenes were a little rocky for the avant-garde metal unit back then; co-vocalist Justin Pendrick stepped down, and eventually the band called it a day after one last farewell show in their hometown of New Jersey a few weeks into 2010.

It’s not a regular occurrence to attend a gig at an outdoor venue, at least not in the UK. Yet, following the tragic events that took place at the Manchester Arena in May, a number of shows scheduled to be hosted there had been moved, rescheduled, or cancelled for the coming months whilst repairs are carried out. Blink-182 went for the former option, instead occupying the amphitheatre makeshift venue that is the Castlefield Bowl for their first Manchester show in five years.

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.
