With the end of one year comes the start of another. It’s undeniable that 2012 was a great year for rock and alternative music as a whole, but with a quick overlook of what is to come and what bands are on the verge of rising from the underground, it seems 2013 might even surpass the previous 12 months. We have listed all of the bands we think you should keep your eyes on throughout this year so you can get in there before they become ‘uncool’ or just so you’re ahead of the pack. See into the future:

Bringing their first step into the festival circuit and bringing one of the first events of its kind to Manchester earlier this year at 3-dayer SummerJam, local Mancunian promoters Mutiny Events decided to follow this on with a closing 1-day festival, aptly titled WinterJam. Much like its counterpart set much earlier in the year, WinterJam was packed to the brim with many of the hardcore and underground metal scene’s most promising. Hopefully, all of the moshing, hardcore dancing and adrenaline will warm things up in the cold climate.
WinterJam, the Manchester all-dayer heavy music festival which is a continuation of its earlier in the year counterpart, SummerJam, have confirmed full stage times for the day of festivities tomorrow (November 25th 2012). If you’re heading to the NQ Live venue to get involved, make sure you know which bands are playing and when as listed below:
