LIVE REVIEW: Cancer Bats @ House Of Vans, London (11/05/2018)

Nestled down the side of Waterloo station, the House Of Vans is a vast, versatile space, containing a skate park, cinema, bar, cafe, and an intimate little music venue right in the centre. The walls are littered with Vans merchandise, and the cavernous tunnels that the space is comprised lend an edgy feel that makes the venue perfect for Canadian hardcore punks Cancer Bats, who’ll be headlining tonight.

LIVE: We Came As Romans @ The Underworld, London (08/05/2018)

The queue for Camden’s famous Underworld venue is snaking past the World’s End pub, down the side of the building, and almost round to the back doors, where an incredibly large tour bus is parked. The sold out show tonight consists of four of the world’s finest metalcore bands, headlined by We Came As Romans, and some fans have been queuing since this afternoon, eager to get a coveted space at the front of the stage.

Both fans of the band and of the genre as a whole have really felt something with the release of ‘Feel Something’, the debut full-length from Californian alternative rockers, Movements.

LIVE: The Wonder Years @ SWX, Bristol (17/04/2018)

The Wonder Years are a band that have been through a steady progression over their whole career. Earlier this month, they released their most astounding and accomplished body of work to date in ‘Sister Cities’, and are reaping the rewards for it. It’s a far cry for the band that had a beginning playing sweaty club shows and belting out pop-punk anthems, though some fans long for those years back. Read More

LIVE: Of Mice & Men @ O2 Ritz, Manchester (23/04/2018)

For the past year or so, Of Mice & Men have had a pretty rocky ride. With the departure of founding member, vocalist, and ring leader Austin Carlile at the end of 2016, the band have steadily picked back up and the pieces before pressing on, and with the release of the aptly titled record ‘Defy’ in January, their sights are certainly set on defying the odds.

LIVE: Skindred @ Academy, Manchester (22/04/2018)

Even with their unique style, sound, and approach to metal – being the leading and indeed only name in “ragga metal” – Newport’s Skindred have always been after the big tings, and have systematically been grabbing them one-by-one. With seventh album ‘Big Tings’ on the way, they’re leading up to its release with their biggest headline UK tour to date. Read More

LIVE: Black Foxxes @ O2 Academy Islington, London (06/04/2018)

It’s a Friday night in North London, and the pubs are bursting at the seams with people fresh out of work, and ready to see the weekend in with a cocktail or two on what is a surprisingly pleasant April evening. If that’s not your bag, however, you can head down to the O2 Academy Islington, known for having hosted many an up-and-coming act before they’re ready to take on bigger stages. Read More

LIVE: Lower Than Atlantis @ The Muni Arts Centre, Pontypridd (07/04/2018)

Considering it’s been just over a year since Lower Than Atlantis released their most ambitious record to date, ‘Safe In Sound’, the band have been rather quiet. There was a UK tour early last year in support of the record, and a support slot with Enter Shikari a few months ago, but other than that there’s barely been a peep from the Watford boys. Tonight, the band are at the start of a huge UK tour that’s taking the band to cities and venues that rarely shows of this caliber. Read More
