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.

Few bands within heavy music receive as much acclaim, and on the flip side have been through as much turmoil over their career, as that of Deftones. Eight albums and nearly 30 years deep, the Californian outfit have managed to maintain their relevance by forever being innovative and refreshing, and, with latest album ‘Gore’ being no different, the band are back in the UK for a quick handful of dates with them now coming towards the end of the album’s cycle.

About 4 years ago, Floridian post-hardcore favourites Underoath completed the final show of their farewell tour. The band decided to throw in the towel, putting to bed a 15-year long career, with little sign that a reunion would ever come to fruition. Come 2017, not only are they back, but they’re back in the UK for the first time in over 6 years.

In today’s climate, it’s not all that often that bands who aren’t at it full-time can last to see a decade long career, nevermind celebrate the tenth anniversary of a release. Alas, British progressive metal darlings Devil Sold His Soul have reached this pinnacle milestone with their debut ‘A Fragile Hope’, and what better way to celebrate such an achievement than hitting the road?
