MUSIC FEATURE: How Issues Levelled Up By Ditching The Screaming

It’s taken a while, but it feels like Issues have finally, fully, arrived. Their latest album, 'Beautiful Oblivion', is bursting with creativity and first-class instrumental performances. It’s a breath of fresh air among their contemporaries, and in large part because the band have now totally abandoned everything that held them captive to limitation. With a UK headline tour on the horizon, this is a new start for Issues, and the future couldn’t look brighter.

MUSIC FEATURE: Jamie Lenman On The Resurgence Of British Post-Hardcore

2000trees is something of a spiritual home for Jamie Lenman, a much earlier year of Trees was even set to be headlined by his previous band, Reuben.

We caught up with the man himself to reflect on the 'Golden Age' of British post-hardcore and its resurgence.

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.
