Rising from the ashes of Blitz Kids' break up, Away Days have released their self-titled debut EP full of alt-rock tracks with a twist of pop-punk. Released from the chains of big label influences they’ve taken the DIY approach, a move which has completely paid off.
This Friday sees the release of Moose Blood's sophomore album Blush, the follow up to 2014's debut I'll Keep You In Mind, From Time To Time. We caught up with guitarist Mark Osborne to discuss everything Blush, from second album pressures to favourite lyrics.
Moose Blood are a band who need no introduction, and following on from their 2014 debut album I’ll Keep You In Mind From Time To Time they’ve returned with follow up Blush. Having spent the last two years winning over the hearts of music lovers across the globe with their impeccable live performances, they’ve also somehow managed to create a ten track release of melodic guitar rock with a massive dose of emo thrown in for good measure.
Following on from their huge performance at Slam Dunk Midlands we talked to Eddy Brewerton and Glenn Harvey of Moose Blood. With 2016 shaping out to be their biggest year to date we couldn’t wait to find out what second album Blush is set to bring and to hear what other plans they have up their sleeves.
Now in its tenth year, Slam Dunk Festival weekend is a highlight for many music lovers across the country. 2016 saw the relocation of Slam Dunk Midlands to Birmingham’s NEC, we headed down to check out some of BTN’s favourite bands on what looked set to be a brilliant day of live music.
We're not entirely sure where the past year has gone, but somehow Slam Dunk Festival has crept right up on us this year! Celebrating their tenth anniversary means one hell of a party and this year they've pulled out the mother of all line-ups. To try and help you choose between your band clashes, we've picked ten acts you 100% have to see over the weekend.
