After announcing their new album ‘All These Countless Nights’ during their set at Reading Festival last year, Deaf Havana have hit the road this week for a headline tour, joined by Dinosaur Pile-Up and Dead!. Here’s what went down when we took a trip to the O2 Academy Bristol earlier this week…
As venues go, a tiny medieval church is a pretty special one to use for your first ever headline show, but then Greywind aren’t afraid to take risks – and this one more than paid off.
We headed to The Joiners to see the quadruple threat of Fair Weather, The Gospel Youth, WSTR and Seaway on the first date of their 2017 tour. We anticipated a night of pop-punk chaos and we got certainly got this!
After dropping new album The Stage at the end of 2016, Avenged Sevenfold are back with a brand new stage production, joined by returning hard rock legends Disturbed and Swedish melo-death stalwarts In Flames.
Within the ever stirring world of metalcore, Beartooth are an American band who have been absolutely soaring over the past year or so. During their last visit to Glasgow, they landed what could be described as a ‘pretty good’ impression; but with a recently released second album entitled Aggressive and a supporting tour to match, any chance to see a possibility of improvement of an already solid live band is a graciously accepted event.
Against Me! are a wonderful example of how relevant political punk and punk that deals with social justice is as we go into 2017. In fact, we would say that this activism through music is needed more so than ever.
There aren’t many shows that are guaranteed to be a good time, but The Front Bottoms is one of them. Even if you end up losing your Oyster card and getting beer spilled on your new skirt, their heartfelt and upbeat punk could literally cure any blues. Tonight we see them headline the O2 Forum Kentish Town in London and one thing’s for sure: no matter how big they get, they’ll always put on an amazing, sincere show.
2016 has seen Nothing But Thieves tour almost solidly in support of their self-titled debut album, which was released in November last year. To round off a crazy twelve months the quintet played three of their biggest headline shows to date – all of which sold out in advance – ending with a performance at Brixton’s O2 Academy. These guys are riding a huge wave of success and after tonight ‘s performance this is thoroughly deserved.
Last month Dance Gavin Dance made their long awaited return to the UK as part of their 10 year anniversary tour. The dates not only featured current vocalist Tilian Pearson, but also ex-vocalists Kurt Travis and Jonny Craig who shared vocal duties on select songs. We took a trip to the Glasgow show to capture some memories on camera!
It’s Saturday night at the Eventim Apollo and it’s the second night of indie-folk legends The Lumineers’ London dates. You can see how much the band have grown over the years from the full capacity of this beautiful theatre.
