LIVE REVIEW: Counterparts, Can’t Swim, Chamber, Static Dress, The Dome, London, 20/02/2020

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.

LIVE REVIEW: Leprous, Klone, Maraton, FORM Space, Cluj-Napoca, 18/02/2020

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.

LIVE REVIEW: ROAM, Superlove, Wolf Culture, The Anvil, Bournemouth, 24/01/2020

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.

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.
