With uncertainty as to whether or not 2013’s bi-polar double album ‘Muscle Memory’ would be a one-off solo venture from Jamie Lenman, his fully-fledged return in last year’s full-length offering ‘Devolver’ saw him bust down the door back into the music industry, bolstered with a new found confidence, and dressed head-to-toe in a sheen white.

It’s a Sunday night, which for many Londoners means preparing to go back to work, a quiet evening in front of the TV, and an early night. Not so, however, for the many revellers lining up alongside Scala in Kings Cross for the long awaited return of hardcore band, Möngöl Hörde.

Many bands go through turbulent times, and California metalcore bruisers Of Mice & Men have had their fair share. Their last album ‘Cold World’ received mixed reviews, and vocalist Austin Carlile departed the band for the second time in 2016, citing both ongoing health problems and shortly after musical differences. But, they’re back on the scene again with bassist and clean vocalist Aaron Pauley taking the reigns as frontman, ready to burst your eardrums with the aptly titled new album, ‘Defy’.

Rating:

In a world that seems to be topsy-turvy, general songs about heartbreak and girls just don’t cut it for Great Collapse. 2017 was an interesting year to say the least, and the five-piece band, consisting of current and former of cult bands Rise Against, Death By Stereo, and Set Your Goals aren’t holding back on talking about the more negative. Their second album, ‘Neither Washington Nor Moscow… Again’ combines political activism and raging punk rock in an exhilarating short 30 minutes.

Back in 2015, Aussie newcomers Earth Caller broke through in the metalcore/hardcore scene with their explosive debut album, ‘Degenerate’. The record saw them gain vast national and international exposure, as well as making appearances on a few rock charts too. Despite the successes, the band were almost torn apart, as what followed was every member apart from frontman Josh Collard leaving the band.

So, it goes without saying that the anticipation from the fans to finally see Scranton’s own Motionless In White back on UK shores is pretty high.

Ryan Scott Graham is mostly known as the bassist/backing vocalist for pop-punk troupe, State Champs. However, his solo project, Speak Low If You Speak Love, began a few years prior to him joining the band. Speak Low‘s 2013 debut album ‘Everything But What You Need’ was re-issued in 2015 after Graham‘s signing to Pure Noise Records, and was a heartfelt effort of acoustic tunes filled with emotion and delightful harmonies.
