As part of Independent Venue Week, one of Bournemouth’s finest venues, The Anvil became host to the likes of Eastbourne outfit ROAM, alt-rock trio Superlove and South Coast quartet Wolf Culture. With this being a sold-out show hosted in a basement venue we had a feeling this was going to be a memorable night for all those in attendance.
In support of their latest album Pressure, Florida outfit Wage War took their tour to Birmingham's O2 Institute 2 bringing Ded and Thornhill along for the ride too.
Bringing punk back with a silly twist are Aussie nutters, The Chats. Tonight they've travelled half-way across the world to rock out at the O2 Academy Bristol. In the three years since the release of viral video Smoko the band have blossomed and fans were in line for a punk filled night to remember.
Devin Townsend has released everything from peaceful compositions to brutal and aggressive songs since his 1993 debut on Steve Vai's Sex & Religion album. Now on tour in support of latest solo release Empath, he's taken British progressive metal band Haken along for the ride.
Stray From The Path are a band that have paid their dues time and time again. The band have been a testament to the fact that hard work inevitability pays off and with this current UK run selling out all but one of its six dates, we venture to the biggest night of the tour at the famous O2 Academy Islington in North London.
Following the release of their fifth studio album 'The Trouble With Boys', pop legends Scouting For Girls are currently out on their annual pre-Christmas tour. Hitting Bournemouth’s O2 Academy on a cold Thursday night, we had a feeling we’d be warmed up thanks to a night of great pop-singalongs.
This month one of the hardest sounding tours of the year brings itself to the UK, beginning in London at ULU. Knocked Loose bring a package stacked with heavy hitting sounds in support of their stunning album A Different Shade Of Blue, but have they left themselves open to being upstaged by their incredible supporting package?
Following on from the release of their debut album Don't Wait 'Til Tomorrow, Yonaka headed out on tour earlier this month for a series energetic and chaotic live shows. Check out what went down at the Glasgow show in our photo gallery and review here.
Following on from the release of 2018 album Prequelle which received a rich throng of positive feedback Swedish rockers Ghost embarked on a UK arena tour which rolled into Cardiff's Motorpoint Arena last week. The show was in the running for the most impressive stage setup/performance delivered by a rock band in Cardiff during 2019.
As far as line-ups go when you put Nervus, Cultdreams and Milk Teeth on the same bill you’re guaranteed to not only have a great night of live music, but also a crowd of open-minded fans willing to embrace and enjoy everything thrown their way. When this tour rolled into The Anvil in Bournemouth last week we got to experience the strength and solidarity of this scene first hand and had a great time in the process.
