Since they dropped their controversial video for their provoking track, ‘Goodnight Alt-Right’, which rubbed up a lot of people in the wrong way (just check the YouTube comments), it seems a lot of eyes have been set on Stray From The Path. Of course, anyone who has any partial knowledge of the band knows of their outspoken approach to politics and hot social topics, and they’ve brought their engaging ethos and mentality over to the UK.

Any fans of Thy Art Is Murder and general followers of the deathcore community will undoubtedly be aware of the turbulence of their careers over the past couple of years following the release of their 2015 record, ‘Holy War’, specifically surrounding the exit and return of vocalist, CJ McMahon. Yet, here they are with a new record under their belt, ‘Dear Desolation’, and eyes set on world domination. Their current objective: a UK tour.

More than a decade deep into their career, Arizona metalcore collective blessthefall are yet to make an exploding impression on the UK to the extent that they hold back in the US. Across their five albums, they’ve for the most part stuck to their guns of what they know and are good since their inception and, though they may not be filling venues on UK shores to the size that they do back home, nothing quite beats that intimate club experience.

The touring cycle for Trash Boat‘s 2016 debut album ‘Nothing I Write You Can Change What You’ve Been Through’ has taken the band worldwide, and even landed them support slots on UK tours with the likes of The Wonder Years and Beartooth. So, with this show, it’s exciting to where the band are after touring with some big names in some big venues.

The last time that New Found Glory graced the shores of the UK wasn’t all that long ago. They were a part of potentially the biggest UK tour that the pop-punk scene has had in a while back in January as main support on the A Day To Remember tour alongside both Moose Blood and Neck Deep. Their short but sweet set left people wanting more, and now, that’s exactly what they have; a 20th anniversary tour playing two albums a night spanning the length of the UK.

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.
