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

Booking the cavernous O2 Academy in Glasgow is a bold move for Fatherson. The band have long had a dedicated cult size following, packing out smaller venues all around the country, but this is a seriously big room. It’s a real statement of intent for this band, a sign they want to be on those bigger stages, and if this show is anything to go by they’re liable to get there.

LIVE REVIEW: Holding Absence, The Garage Attic, Glasgow, 25/03/2019

There’s something happening with Holding Absence. Something that isn’t necessarily big, but something that’s genuine and authentic. In years to come, people will be trying to tell you they were at this run of shows. They probably weren’t, but everyone who caught Holding Absence on this tour knows they saw the start of something really, really special. Long may it last.

LIVE REVIEW: Blood Youth, Palm Reader, Lotus Eater, Audio, Glasgow, 03/03/2019

People say if you form a band, play the music you love. Or they tell you do what’s cool for the money. Blood Youth are only listening to those first people. Well…that and a whole lot of turn of the century post-hardcore and nu-metal. We went down to the Glasgow leg of the band’s recent tour, where they were joined by Palm Reader and Lotus Eater.

LIVE REVIEW: While She Sleeps, Stray From The Path, Trash Boat, SWG3, Glasgow, 27/02/2019

LIVE REVIEW: While She Sleeps, Stray From The Path, Trash Boat, SWG3, Glasgow, 27/02/2019

While She Sleeps seem as if they’ve undergone a transformation since taking control of their own destiny with their previous album ‘You Are We’. It’s a preconception that does this band a disservice. Shows like this aren’t born out of being the hot thing right now. They come from lighting a burning fire in the heart of your fans. ‘SO WHAT?’ is just the latest piece of fuel used to fan the flame, and we celebrated with the band on the Glasgow leg of their tour.

LIVE REVIEW: Enter Shikari, Palaye Royale, Black Peaks, Barrowlands Ballroom, Glasgow, 23/01/2019

Enter Shikari are objectively one of the best bands at being a great band in the UK. Possibly the world. They have been for a long time, and it doesn’t seem set to change anytime soon.

LIVE REVIEW: Bury Tomorrow, Garage, Glasgow, 13/12/2018

These kind of shows have been a long time coming for Bury Tomorrow. The band’s sincerity and passion has never been in doubt, and yet it’s been a consistently bumpy ride to success for them. Perhaps that’s part of why this current run of show feels so triumphant: Bury Tomorrow got here through sheer perseverance and being better than their peers. No gimmicks, no lucky timing, not really any haircuts to speak of. Just pure graft.

LIVE REVIEW: A Perfect Circle, O2 Academy, Glasgow, 02/12/2018

LIVE REVIEW: A Perfect Circle, O2 Academy, Glasgow, 02/12/2018

The cult status of A Perfect Circle is only enhanced by the band’s detached attitude to their fans. You can come to see them if you want, but if you didn’t they wouldn’t care and they’d still play a great show all the same. Which is probably true. Despite the band’s rare periods of activity, this is a band whose class and musicianship puts most other bands to shame.

LIVE REVIEW: You Me At Six, Barrowlands Ballroom, Glasgow, 27/11/2018 & 28/11/2018

Anniversary tours aren’t always a sign of a tire band in need of reviving. Sometimes it’s just a celebration of music that connects people in a way that nothing else really can. You Me At Six are one of the bands celebrating, and across two nights the band deliver slick and professional sets.

LIVE REVIEW: Black Peaks, King Tut’s Wah Wah Hut, Glasgow, 14/10/2018

Even with the UK music scene in such rude health just now, there’s few bands who play this well with this much passion. From their delicate moments to monstrous and heavy sections, Black Peaks are totally undeniable – this band could be on the edge of a perfect storm of timing, songs and talent.
