From day one, St. Albans’ Enter Shikari have been more or less completely DIY, at least as much as is feasibly possible whilst also continuing to grow. With that in mind, tonight’s almost sold out show at Manchester’s Victoria Warehouse could mark as the biggest show held there by a DIY act to date, bringing a full-scale production with them to celebrate and promote their latest full-length, ‘The Spark’.

The Dome in North London is a really charming little venue. At 500 capacity, it’s the bigger sibling of sister venue Boston Music Rooms next door, and manages to feel more spacious than the similar sized Camden Underworld whilst lacking none of the intimacy. Tonight, it’ll play home to Canadian hardcore five-piece Counterparts, who seem to have amassed quite a following this side of the pond, if the queue outside the door is anything to go by.

Bedford’s Don Broco certainly aren’t everyone’s cup of tea, but you have to give it to them, they’re having an absolute corker of a year from touring across North America, to popping up at Reading & Leeds Festival for a secret set. But, they’re not done with the UK just yet, with their sights set on a sold out show at London’s Alexandra Palace – the band’s biggest headline show to date.

It seems like with the release of their sophomore record ‘The Warmth Of A Dying Sun’ in May, Woking collective Employed To Serve have been employed to claw their way from out of the underground, into the wider world of their more established contemporaries, and to trample all underfoot who get in their way. They begin their campaign of dominance with their first headline UK tour.

Doing their part as much as they can to promote and give back to the scene, and to be much more than just an international merchandise and clothing store, Impericon not only having their annual touring festival, but also their smaller tour run named the Never Say Die! Tour across Europe to end off their year. For the 2018 edition, New York breakdown devotees Emmure are enlisted for headline duties.

Rating:

For the past year or so, Slaves have had their fair share of speed bumps. After playing what were initially intended to be their last shows ever in April of last year, the band retracted their dissolve pretty quickly, instead continuing on as a three-piece.

Though not an overly dominant presence in the world of rock in recent years, at least not in comparison to their breakthrough years back in 2004 and 2005 with their hits ‘Broken’ and ‘Remedy’ respectively, South Africa’s Seether have been consistently producing and putting out catchy, hard-hitting, and formidable alt rock/post-grunge work throughout their now seven album long career.

Let’s face it, when you think of ska-punk, you think of Reel Big Fish. The California heavyweights and ‘Sell Out’ hitmakers have now been around for over two decades, which is mind-boggling really. This year, they’re headlining the Fireball: Fuelling The Fire Tour, and, tonight at the O2 Kentish Town Forum, you can practically taste the cinnamon whiskey in the air.

Not many bands get to the grand old age of twenty and still manage to sell out shows all around the world, so with Placebo being in the middle of that exact kind of tour, tonight should be considered a celebration.

2017 has been a big year for Neck Deep. After smashing through their summer stint at festivals like Slam Dunk Festival and Vans Warped Tour, before dropping their progressive third studio album, ‘The Peace And The Panic’. It’s understandable why there is a lot of hype for the band’s biggest UK tour to date to support the release.
