FEATURE: 50 albums that turn 10 in 2017!

A decade is, especially in the music world, quite a long time, even if it does seem to just flash by and feel like just a month. Ten years ago, back in 2007, things were very different; MySpace was still the kingpin of social media, Bring Me The Horizon were dodging bottles whilst supporting Killswitch Engage night after night, and Give It A Name and Taste Of Chaos were still a thing.

Along with all the nostalgic memories, 2007 was also host to a plethora of great records, some being the first major step for a lot of bands towards the lofty heights of their career that they’re revelling in today.

Of course there are hundreds, but we filtered together 50 great albums that turn 10-years-old this year to remember those modern classics.

Date: November 10th 2016
Venue: Sound Control, Manchester
Support: Kurt Travis / Jonny Craig / Good Tiger


Not many bands have had a past as turbulent as Dance Gavin Dance. Until their past two records, ‘Mothership’ and ‘Instant Gratification’, there’d be at least one member change after every album. Literally every album. Prevailing for a decade, the band are over in the UK in Europe to celebrate the ten year milestone, after already touring it in the States a few months back and, put simply, it’s a once in a lifetime celebration.

ALBUM: Dance Gavin Dance – Mothership

Release Date: October 7th 2016
Label: Rise Records
Website: None available


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’.
