ALBUM REVIEW: Code Orange – Forever

Ever since the release of 2014’s I Am King, there’s been an undeniable buzz gathering around Code Orange. Three years on the band are back with their Roadrunner Records debut, Forever. Kicking off the album campaign back in late 2016 with the record's title track and an ominous video, Pittsburgh’s finest pick up exactly where they left off.

ALBUM REVIEW: Frank Carter and the Rattlesnakes – Modern Ruin

Almost two years on from their debut record Blossom and Frank Carter and the Rattlesnakes are back with their second album Modern Ruin. In true Carter fashion, there’s no sitting on the same formula that made Blossom great, but instead, there’s a thirst for something new.

ALBUM REVIEW: Dropkick Murphys – 11 Short Stories of Pain & Glory

After taking to the studio early last year, Dropkick Murphys hit back with the announcement of their ninth studio album 11 Short Stories of Pain & Glory and lead single Blood. Influenced by addiction, the Boston bombings and the band's charity The Claddagh Fund, 11 Short Stories looks to blend the band's thirst for a good time with personal experience.


Despite the occasional demo trickling out over the past several years, it wasn't until mid-October that we learnt ex-My Chemical Romance guitarist Ray Toro would be releasing his debut album Remember The Light in less than a month's time. Lead single Take The World soon followed, so we decided it was about time to catch up with Toro and find out just what's in store for us with his new project.

ALBUM REVIEW: Feeder – All Bright Electric

Following a lack of new music for four years, Feeder are back with their ninth studio album All Bright Electric. Released earlier last month, All Bright Electric sees the band ditch the pop-rock chords that made them one of the first non-metal bands to grace Download Festival in favour of a heavier - almost grunge-like - sound.

ALBUM REVIEW: American Football – American Football (LP2)

By this point it is inescapable to mention American Football without mentioning the fact that they haven't released a record since their self-titled debut back in 1999. Whilst somewhat of a cult hit at the time, it wasn't until the band had stopped making music that things began to click for the Illinois quartet. The band's rise to acclaim came during the so called "emo revival" and it eventually lead to a reformation back in 2014. Two years on we have finally been graced with the long awaited second album, American Football (LP2).

ALBUM REVIEW: Boston Manor – Be Nothing

Be Nothing is everything you'd expect from Boston Manor. Whilst they operate within a somewhat stale pop-punk scene, they're one of the few bands who manage to fit into the genre comfortably, whilst also managing to defy expectations and bring something refreshing to the table.

ALBUM REVIEW: Every Time I Die – Low Teens

Low Teens is a tough listen, but it is also a record that sees Every Time I Die flourish both musically and lyrically. Whilst the band have a strong catalog of releases, Jordan Buckley, Andy Williams, Stephen Micciche, Daniel Davison and Keith Buckley may have put together their most complete record to date.

ALBUM REVIEW: A Day To Remember – Bad Vibrations

It seems like a lifetime since we were graced with an A Day To Remember record, thankfully the band announced their comeback earlier this year by dropping single Paranoia and announcing their sixth studio album Bad Vibrations. Here's what we thought...

EP REVIEW: Youth Man – Wax

Youth Man have been kicking around the British punk scene since 2012, and a support slot with letlive. earlier this year saw their hard work pay off, as they introduced themselves to the masses with an explosion of aggression. Here's what we think of their latest EP, 'Wax'.
