As a band who have always had family at it's core, it was difficult to see whether or not Eisley would continue after both co-frontwoman Stacy King and guitarist Chauntelle D'Agostino would no longer be a part of the band. Shortly after announcing these line-up changes, Sherri Dupree-Bemis took to the band's social media to announce that they were recording the follow-up to 2013's Currents.
Having become stalwarts on the British music scene for quite some time, it's a bit strange that Deaf Havana were always somewhat overshadowed by the success of their peers. Having taken time to work their way around some line-up changes and other issues that threatened to pull the band apart, the truly impressive All These Countless Nights comes after a tough few years for the band.
When listened to again and again - and you'll want to listen to it repeatedly - Light We Made is the band discovering exactly what they can achieve by mellowing out a little more, and experimenting with a larger sonic spectrum. This isn't Balance and Composure with an entirely new sound, it's them building upon what they've done before.
It's only been seven years since Young Guns released their debut EP, Mirrors, and yet it feels as though the band have been around an awful lot longer. Having released three albums since, Young Guns might just be at their best with their latest full-length 'Echoes'.
Following the news that Tom Delonge would be leaving Blink-182 - again - to concentrate on other projects, Mark Hoppus and Travis Barker could have accepted defeat and called it a day. Instead, they announced that friend and Alkaline Trio frontman Matt Skiba would be stepping in - here's what we thought of their latest album 'California'.
One Hundred Percent Strong starts off quite enjoyable - gutsy and noisy, similar to Pulled Apart by Horses, loud enough that it jars nicely against the saturation of jangly guitars and acoustics that are about nowadays. But does the rest of the EP follow suit?
There was a point where Wolfmother were thought of as the second coming of the classic 70's rock that is so universally loved. Since their debut album's release in 2006, it seems as though the band have constantly been trying to ride its coattails, trying to emulate its sound and success - unfortunately, it's not always successful.
This show was meant to be taking place a night earlier; moved from Shepherd's Bush Empire to Koko a couple of months before. Camden was the location of both of Basement's last shows before their hiatus - and their return - and now it's where they perform what they referred to as their 'biggest headline show'.
It's kind of weird to think that Simple Plan's first release was about fourteen years ago now. No Pads, No Helmets... Just Balls was goofy, fun and it ensured their status as pop-punk stalwarts. With their knack for writing solid-gold chunks of pop-punk, there's a definite reason that they're still about almost a decade and a half down the line. Here's what we thought of their latest offering, Taking One For The Team.
In the vein of pop superstars such as Queen Bey herself, Say Anything have dropped their newest release I Don't Think It Is without any forewarning. Stemming from Max Bemis' thorough disdain for the 'pre-album build up', they streamed their album for a day prior to its surprise release.
