Canadian punk quartet Billy Talent are no strangers to playing excellent shows in the UK, having been a favourite of festivals such as Download and Reading & Leeds since they first started playing shows over here over a decade ago. Tonight they were in Glasgow in support of their fifth album Afraid of Heights.
It’s been a few years since Canadian natives Billy Talent put together a new studio album, the last we heard from Kowalewicz and co was back in 2014. Proclaimed as one of Canada’s most successful rock acts there are high hopes pinned on this latest outing.
It's Sunday in the press room at Drownload and the rain is starting again. Luckily we caught up with the Billy Talent boys - lead guitarist Ian D'Sa and bassist Jonathan Gallant - which perked us right up!
Cancer Bats like to keep things busy, not only are they recording their new album and heading out on tour across Europe with Billy Talent, but they’ve just announced a handful of UK headline shows in October/November.
Hardcore superstars Cancer Bats have now been added to ALL the European dates supporting fellow Canadians, Billy Talent. The band were initially only due to support on the UK leg of the tour but have been lucky enough to be invited to do the full European tour! The band are currently doing pre-production for a new album which is sure to blow your ear drums away and leave a smile on your face
