The second wave of Simple Creatures EP’s has arrived in the fun-filled form of 'Everything Opposite'. Ready and raring to release new material a mere six months down the line, the supergroup sees Alex Gaskarth and Mark Hoppus, originally of All Time Low and Blink-182 fame, taking the synth-pop sounds of 'Everything Opposite' to an extent that stretches to super strange spaces.
Despite the weather-related camping challenges at this year’s Download, a decent sized crowd have woken up early and amassed at the Avalanche Stage to watch Parting Gift open the stage on day two.
This weekend rock and metal fans will return in their thousands to the iconic Donington Park, for another momentous year of Download Festival. With yet another impressive line-up, including headliners Def Leppard, Slipknot and Tool, there is plenty to choose from - here are our must-see bands at this year's festival!
Pop-punk powerhouses Alex Gaskarth and Mark Hoppus' launched their supergroup Simple Creatures earlier this year, showing made-in-America trash-pop bops on six-track EP Strange Love. Striving for strangeness, the All Time Low x Blink-182 duo's debut moves away from the original bands' moulds and modifies music that masterminds contorted rhythms, distorted synths, exuberant harmonisation and punchy hooks, under an electro/pop/rock euphoria.
