LIVE REVIEW: Bullet For My Valentine, Cancer Bats, SHVPES, Barrowland Ballroom, Glasgow, 24/05/2019

The Barrowlands is a legendary venue. Easily Glasgow’s best, and though it’s criminally underused these days, when a band books there it tends to be a sign of “we know we’re on top form and we need a venue that can handle that.” What tonight proves is that there’s an exception to every rule.

LIVE REVIEW: Fatherson, O2 Academy, Glasgow, 18/05/2019

LIVE REVIEW: Fatherson, O2 Academy, Glasgow, 18/05/2019

Now in its sixth year, StrangeForms is a celebration of all things math-rock, post-rock and post-hardcore, from the legends of these alternative rock sub-genres, to new bands looking to make a name for themselves. 2018 was a landmark year for the Leeds-based festival, as it moved across the city to a larger venue at the Brudenell Social Club; evidence of the event’s growing popularity and ambition. After a successful debut year in its new home, allowing for its largest audience yet, StrangeForms is back for another instalment at the Brudenell.
