Promise Everything is the band's third full length record and once again see’s them alter their sound, here's what we thought!
With just a mere four months between releases, New York pop punkers Patent Pending have been working hard to produce latest album Riot Hearts Rebellion. Known for their eclectic mix of genres we weren’t sure just what to expect, but it’s safe to say that this definitely wasn’t it.
From the opening Tron-esque crescendo of Manifesto, and its subsequent riff onslaught, you are given a very succinct idea of what you’re going to get from Boundless by Pomegranate Tiger. Intelligent, creative, mind boggling - all through sheer instrumentation and talent.
Since 2003’s The Trees Are Dead & Dried Out Wait for Something Wild, SikTh have been a significant pillar in the progressive music world. With new mini-album Opacities, SikTh pick up from where they left off since going on hiatus in 2007; but this time, with added groove.

For Watford quartet Lower Than Atlantis their 2014 self-titled propelled them to the forefront of the British rock scene. Following on from this success a re-packaged version entitled Lower Than Atlantis – The Black Edition has been released rammed with the original album alongside new material, alternative versions and some very interesting covers. It’s usually a hit and miss game with re-releases but with 27 tracks we couldn’t really say no to giving it a listen.
Punk rock is a genre we never seem to get enough of nowadays, but London trio Counterfeit are here to change this. Their debut EP Come Get Some may be short at just three tracks long, but it provides the perfect introduction to their punky sound.
A dull Friday night in Bournemouth looked set to be turned around when we walked into O2 Academy for Scouting For Girls tour date in support of their Still Thinking About You album.
