It's been a whirlwind second half of 2022 for Mother Vulture. The blues-punk quartet spent the summer appearing at an array of festivals including ArcTanGent, Bloodstock, and Leopalooza, followed by a UK headline tour and the recent release of their debut album 'Mother Knows Best'. Back on the road once again in support of the record, we caught up with guitarist Brodie Maguire to discuss their formation, influences, ambitions and more.
Asylums are back with their brand new album 'Signs Of Life', the follow-up to 2020's 'Genetic Cabaret'. The quartet gave us an early glimpse of the record in June with their single 'Scatterbrain', a song that band member Luke Branch describes as "Dr. Feelgood meets The Jesus & Marychain." We caught up recently to find out more about the track, including the writing process, themes and stories from behind the scenes.
Australian indie-rock quartet Dear Seattle return with their emotion-fuelled album 'Someday', delivering a message of reassurance throughout the eleven tracks. We caught up with vocalist/guitarist Brae Fisher following the album release to discuss the band's influences, ambitions, future plans and more.
Like your modern alt-rock with a hint of nostalgia? Well look no further than Australia's Waxflower, who released their sophomore EP 'The Sound Of What Went Wrong' earlier this year. In the lead up to the release, the quartet revealed a video for 'The Drama Scene', which frontman Tristan Higginson explains "is a reflection of my social life at the time." We caught up with the band to find out more, including the writing process, themes and stories from behind the scenes.
In the lead up to their sophomore album 'Run', German post-hardcore trio Future Palace shared a series of enthralling singles and music videos to give us a taste of their new release. We caught up with vocalist Maria and guitarist Manuel to discuss their single 'Defeating Gravity', including the writing process, themes and stories from behind the scenes.
Four years after their sophomore full-length 'Empty Black', progressive post-hardcore quartet Greyhaven are back with their chaotic new album 'This Bright And Beautiful World'. We caught up with vocalist Brent Mills following the release to discuss the band's formation, influences, ambitions and more.
French quartet The Amsterdam Red Light District (aka TARLD) are back with their brand new album 'Trapped', 10-tracks of upbeat melodic hardcore that will no doubt please fans of Fever 333, Refused and Stray From The Path. We caught up with guitarist Maxime Comby ahead of the release, to discuss the band's formation, ambitions, influences and more.
Los Angeles rock trio Dead Sara are making waves on the live circuit, completing a four-week European tour with Eagles of Death Metal before landing in the UK for headline shows in London and an appearance at The Great Escape. We caught up with Emily Armstrong to find out her top touring tips and stories from the road.
Irish noise-pop/alt-rock sextet THUMPER released their debut album 'Delusions Of Grandeur' last month, a coming-of-age record that delivers a captivating blend of psychedelic and pop. We caught up with the band to discuss their formation, influences, ambitions and more.
