The Manchester G-Mex has recently been re-named to Manchester Central (a sensible name with it being within the center of the city), and since then the venue has began hosting musical concerts, one of which is tonight’s act from London – Bloc Party.

Relentless touring is what has been 2007 for Sheffield’s Bring Me The Horizon, and this is their third UK headlining tour this year. But let’s not forget to mention the band have also had their first tours in both Europe and the US in the preceeding months too. Tonight’s venue is Manchester Academy 3, a small-ish venue that’s perfect for the boy’s style.

LIVE: Silverstein @ Academy 3, Manchester (26/11/2007)

Date: November 26th, 2007
Venue: Academy 3, Manchester
Support: The Vincent Black Shadow, blessthefall

MySpace: www.myspace.com/silverstein

Rating:

A band like Silverstein are one that aren’t regular visitors to the UK, and only pop around perhaps once a year, twice if you’re lucky. Upon the release of their latest full-length album ‘Arrivals & Departures’ they return to Europe for a long-awaited tour. The question is: was it worth the wait? On November 26th 2007 they arrive to give Manchester a shot with their post-hardcore music, accompanied with two support acts, who have never even entered the UK with band business.

A collection of a few local bands is more often than not present on Friday’s, for a night of rock at the Winnington Rec in Northwich. This regular event is what is known as Banned! Night, and with one of the most popular bands in the area playing tonight, Skinless Finger, there should be at least one appearance of sparks in the atmosphere.

SINGLE: The Black Ghosts – Some Way Through This

Release Date: October 19th, 2007
Label: Southern Fried Records
Website: None available
MySpace: www.myspace.com/blackghosts

Rating:

London electro duo The Black Ghosts bring to the table new single ‘Some Way Through This’, and in ways it’s their same old technique, but they’ve got something else there for this time through. A fairly underground band right now, The Black Ghosts have the sound and the potential to get themselves onto popular radio stations if they keep their hard work up.

ALBUM: The Blackout – We Are The Dynamite!

Release Date: October 1st, 2007
Label: Fierce Panda Records
Website: www.theblackout.co.uk
MySpace: www.myspace.com/theblackout

Rating:

Welsh post-hardcore rockers The Blackout have been rising considerably well for the past year or so. With the help of their fellow welsh friends Lostprophets adding them to some of their tours, The Blackout soon rose from the status of an underground band to a more publicly known band. ‘We Are The Dynamite!’ is their debut full-length release, and is a record that makes you want to talk about this band more than ever, to the point that ‘The Blackout’ is a household name.
