2019 sees Taking Back Sunday celebrating 20 years as a band by embarking on a world-wide anniversary tour. We headed to the Bristol show to see them perform debut album Tell All Your Friends along with a second set of their favourite tracks from across their career.
Norwegian indie rock band Beezewax are back after five years with new album 'Peace Jazz', an exploration of their own live sound that takes a contemplative look on their past few years on the road.
B-Town threesome JAWS return with their third full length album 'The Ceiling'. The band explore a new twist on their original dream-pop sound as they explore the rush of growing up and the pressure and confusion that comes with it.
The Bristol lads are back. Our Nameless Boy have released their new EP 'Tomorrow I'll Be Scared Again' through Beth Shalom Records, and we are excited as ever to see them in action.
With airtime on BBC Nottingham, supporting the likes of Lacey and releasing a debut album, it’s safe to say that Shadows Like Strangers have had a cracking 2018/19. We’ve had a chance to take a listen to 'Cali' - does it have those feel good Californian vibes? We think it has that, and more!
Duality in music is something that's often difficult to pull off subtly; Fuzzystar, the Edinburgh-based alternative rock project of Andy Thomson manages this by not attempting any grand, genre-defining combination of styles on their debut album, Telegraphing, but by simply infecting the project's sound with various influences and conveying differing emotional states.
It is of no surprise that music fans across the globe were shocked at the announcement that The Dillinger Escape Plan's new record Dissociation would be the final resting point for the band, though ultimately for the highly respectable preservation of the band's own career. That, of course, brings us to the finale of one of the most explosive and enthralling bands to have torn apart stages worldwide.
Dublin's Fangclub have been making a name for themselves recently, being covered by the mainstream rock press, played on Radio 1, and soon, supporting chart-botherers Twin Atlantic for the Ireland/UK leg of their European tour, which includes three nights in Glasgow's Barrowlands. This tour leg commences just under a month after the release of their sophomore EP, Coma Happy.
Blues rock babies RavenEye got 'Out Of The Rain' at Drownload and straight into the studio to create new super album, 'Nova'. If you're a fan of last EP Breakout, you may find this one a little different. It's as if they've disected their previous sound with a rusty razor and tied up all the loose ends; and the result is infectious. Disclaimer: the songs are so catchy they will take over your brain.
The Classic Grand is absolutely packed this Sunday evening, with Royal Republic's small but dedicated fanbase turning up in spades. The venue's 500 person capacity is pushed to its limit, there barely being space for anyone to move by the time Dinosaur Pile-Up have started.
