Relentless Energy Drink teams up with Stockport’s finest electro-rock band for a night of Manchester talent.
We are now entering the time of year, known as the festival season and the UK really does have an abundance at the moment, Takedown Festival being one of them. Taking place on the 11th May, it is one of the first to kick off a summer of live music and this year the festival comes back to the Southampton Student Union on the University Campus site. The turn out is great and the fans are spoilt for choice, with 5 stages showcasing a lot of exciting talent over the day and we were lucky enough to be there to join in with all the madness!
It’s hard to believe that a decade has gone by already, but indie-pop band Athlete’s show at Shepherds Bush Empire was in honour of the 10th anniversary of their debut album Vehicles & Animals. Bringing back memories of university days and teenage folly, our attention was really held throughout the whole of the set.
Superb and humble set from Surrey based mathcore rockers Arcane Roots hit London with the show off Baby Godzilla and comparatively reserved but brilliant James Cleaver Quintet.
The last time indie-hoppers WHY? were in the capital was after the release of Mumps, Etc. at the end of last year. With their first London show in over six months, they proved that they are still the masters of awkwardly honest indie rap.
So it’s the first weekend of May, what does this mean, bank holiday? Well, yes, but more importantly Live At Leeds is unearthing ripples of music fans from under the woodworks of dissertation deadlines, full time jobs, and other such life absorbing distractions, and cultivating all around the city of Leeds for a celebration of proper good live music – as us up north would say.
The last time Sheffield mob Bring Me The Horizon visited the Portsmouth Pyramids Centre, they were on the verge of something big. 3 years later they return, even bigger than ever. Have a read of what we thought of their live show.
It’s hard to imagine getting angry and angsty in a dark sweaty room when the weather is so nice outside. Of course on Saturday evening in London it’s all starting to go downhill, and when Hatebreed are in town, there’s little room for the sun anyway. It’s moshing and flailing arms all the way.
After a long 3 years, Bryce Avary of the band The Rocket Summer returns to the UK to treat fans to an acoustic tour, filled with classics and recent tracks from the artist’s back catalogue. A night which was definitely not one to miss for any eager fan of this band.
Technical metal superstars host a night of chugging and oddities to showcase how far one of the more maligned sub-genres of metal has come recently.
