With the mention of Sum 41, you instantly think of when pop-punk ruled the world back in the early 2000s. While these Canadian punks never really reached the lofty heights of fame achieved by Blink-182 or Green Day, they certainly survived the emo takeover of 2005 and to this day continue to put out music which draws a sizable crowd at every tour. This is nothing short of a miracle when you consider what frontman and founding member Deryck Whibley has gone through in the last five years.

Metalcore denarians The Devil Wears Prada are back with ‘Transit Blues’, a record about travelling which agonises over the distances created, while also celebrating the adventure promised. Through 11 incredible metalcore tracks, the listener is treated to a fly-by of the entire world as the band sees it, as though they were a passenger on the tour bus. Rarely has homesickness been so listenable.

Placebo arrived back in 1996 with their self-titled debut into a British rock world dominated by lager fuelled Britpop, seen in bands like Blur and Oasis, and made huge impact with their unique brand of grunge-ridden alternative rock that landed in the charts at number 5.

It’s difficult to approach a Dance Gavin Dance album, and indeed a review, without bearing in mind the band’s ever-revolving line-up, which throughout their career has seen three different clean vocalists, with current singer Tilian Pearson now holding the title of the longest lasting forerunner in any of their formations. Things finally seem stable, consistent, and drama free, and this is one of the strongest qualities that shines through the band in them extending their invitation to us to join them on the ‘Mothership’.

Liverpool’s FOES might not be a household name, but that’s fairly likely to change with the release of ‘The Summit Lies Skyward’; a triumphant debut, and a refreshing take on modern progressive rock.

Floridian hard rockers Alter Bridge have shown tremendous consistency over the last five or so years, despite the insurmountable pressure that they seem to put themselves under. Whether it’s frontman Myles Kennedy‘s vocal work with Slash‘s group, or the three solo records in as many years for lead guitarist Mark Tremonti, the band have grown from strength-to-strength culminating in their fifth studio record, ‘The Last Hero’.
