Playing early in the morning didn’t deter Belgian post-hardcore act Campus from putting on an intense, energetic live show and revealing why they are gaining as much attention as they are in mainland Europe. We caught up with them after their set and got an insight as to what it is that makes Campus, what they thought of the set themselves and more:
European post-hardcore outfit Campus have just unveiled their new music video for their latest single, ‘Young Bastard’. You can watch it below:
Campus have had an amazing year so far, sharing stages with the likes of While She Sleeps, Cancer Bats and Vanna, and to top it all off they have produced this outstanding EP, ‘Empathy’. What Campus have created here is a very contemporary sound, fitting in with their metalcore peers whilst also shining out from them.
After a set at this year’s Hit The Deck Festival, Belgium outfit Campus have confirmed the release of their new EP ‘Empathy’ on Small Town Records, set for release on May 28th 2012. The EP’s artwork and tracklisting can be seen below:

Returning for a second year and bringing in a fifth stage from The Forum just down the road, Hit The Deck Festival had once again brought a stellar line-up to the city of Nottingham to which rock, punk, metal and hardcore fans across the nation travelled far and wide to be a part of. With headliners across the stage consisting of Kids In Glass Houses, Cancer Bats, Rolo Tomassi and Zebrahead, it’s fair to say the Nottingham day festival was successful for a second year running.
