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.

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.

Since 2005, Rolo Tomassi have been breaking down any walls of genre stereotypes, expectations, and pretty most known and adhered to rules in music, and it’s this ambitious and bold repertoire that the band possess which has made their clawing through the ranks a little more laborious than it would be for most.

There are few bands who reinvent themselves quite as much as Chicago’s Fall Out Boy; from their humble emo pop-punk beginnings, to hanging out with Kim Kardashian and signing to Jay-Z‘s record label, to taking some time out and returning after four-years of downtime with songs bigger than ever before, and also bringing many split opinions, no more so than this year’s LP, ‘Mania’.

After some unstable and somewhat problematic fleeting returns here and there since their initial split back in 2001, it seems like we’re finally seeing a fully-fledged return of El Paso post-hardcore favourites, At The Drive-In. The past 12 months have seen not only their first full-length of 16 years in ‘in•ter a•li•a’, but also an EP in ‘Diamanté’, and now a solidified touring schedule.

The queue for London’s iconic venue KOKO tonight is snaking past the stage door, back across the road, and down alongside the rows of bars and kebab shops that line Camden’s bustling streets. It’s a diverse crowd; teenage girls clad head-to-toe in band merch stand alongside tall bearded types who look like they might have gotten lost on the way to a Coheed & Cambria show. Still, all are here for tonight’s pop punk triple bill, headlined by Australia’s Tonight Alive.

It’s been quite some journey for As It Is. Starting off as a small band from Brighton back in 2012, the group rose through the plethora of pop-punk bands trying to make it, and have become a staple name in the scene. With two full albums now under their belt (sophomore ‘okay.’ being about a year old now) and an ever-growing, dedicated fan base, it seems they can do no wrong, and another UK headline run proves that.

Not many bands have as staple a sound as Turbowolf do. Their rip-roaring, energetic fuzzy rock is riff heavy, loud and perfect for playing live, and, having just dropped their exuberant third LP, ‘The Free Life’, the band head up north to Glasgow on the second date of their UK tour with a bagful of buzzing tracks to blow the roof off of the tiny underground venue that is Stereo.

Fresh from the release of their sophomore LP ‘Entertainment’ in January, the Texan trio of Waterparks that have opted for British shores for the first tour run to promote the record; a ten-track wonder of pop-rock choruses, colourful charisma, and a sack full of synth-filled sequences. Just what’s needed in the dismal and dreary weathers of Glasgow.

Even now in 2018, there’s still a lingering air in the appropriately abandoned and loathed sexist crevices of the rock and metal community (not that it’s a crutch exclusive to those genres only) that girls can’t sing rock. Obviously there’s a countless number of bands and artists that destroy such a claim hands down, and one of which is undoubtedly Californian powerhouse, Butcher Babies.
