With this looking set to be one of the last tours before the widespread cancellation of many live events due to the ongoing pandemic, we knew we couldn't miss the chance to catch Palm Reader and Employed To Serve playing Glasgow's Cathouse. Check out our review and photo gallery from the show here.
It was only less than a month ago since Anvil released their latest studio album, Legal At Last which followed their 2018 release Pounding The Pavement. In support of this new material they recently headed out on a UK tour, with support for the Manchester show being provided by Ragdoll Sunday and Electus.
One about the nice things of the 21st century is that pop music isn’t a dirty word anymore. Pop is cool and when Oh Wonder played SWG3 in Glasgow recently we were there to see one of the coolest pop bands around in action.
Alcest recently made their return to Romania on their Spiritual Instinct European Tour, playing in Cluj-Napoca for the very first time. With Birds In Row and Kælan Mikla also coming along for the ride.
There’s something distinctly cool about not putting bands who are essentially carbon copies of one another on tour together. It wasn’t until recently that pop-punk bands brought pop-punk bands and metal bands supported metal bands, and it turned into a weird clique where one couldn’t sit with the other. The point is, when you look at Static Dress, Chamber, Can’t Swim and Counterparts on paper, you question why they’d be on tour together, but when you see them live, hardcore elements overlapping despite their sound being very different from each other, it feels like kismet.
Ever since their first appearance at the Rockstadt Extreme Festival in 2017, Leprous have become a yearly occurrence in terms of concerts in Romania. In 2018 they played the ARTmania Festival, followed up by two headlining shows in Cluj-Napoca and Bucharest; in 2019 they were part of the Bucovina Rock Castle line-up, and now in 2020 they returned with two more headlining shows, a few months ahead of their planned appearance at the /FORM Days Festival, coming this July. Along for the ride are fellow Norwegians in Maraton, and Klone from France.
What did you do with your Valentine's Day? Whatever it was, nothing could top grime legend Kano's performance at O2 Academy Birmingham on Friday night.
Tonight a grand old building in the North of London becomes the chapel for Sleep Token to gather the masses for their biggest UK performance to date.
Twin Temple are pioneers of a genre of music known as 'satanic du-wop' attracting jazz, rockabilly chicks and metalheads. All of the aforementioned came together in the Jazz Cafe to hail their lord and saviour, Satan herself.
At The Garage in Glasgow, Thy Art Is Murder, Carnifex and Fit For An Autopsy took to the stage for an evening full of guttural vocals and thuggish breakdowns.
