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.
Having been around for nearly two decades, Comeback Kid have spent the entirety of their career churning out a seemingly endless stream of metal-infused hardcore punk tracks influencing countless younger bands along the way. Tonight in the DIY punk surroundings of Boston Music Room they took to the stage alongside British hybrid outfit Svalbard.
This year has already seen indie-rock outfit Foals release their first record of the year Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost - Part 1 and in support of this they have recently been out on an arena tour across the UK and Ireland. We headed to the Bournemouth date of the tour where support came from Yak to see their ferocious live show in all its glory and dance away our Wednesday night in style.
Following the release of their debut EP Come Get Some, tonight saw punk outfit Counterfeit playing their debut show in London’s O2 Islington Academy. With support coming from Dead! and Straight Lines, this sold out show looked set to be an early Christmas treat.
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. We’ve made it no secret that we’re fans of the band having been at their previous Bournemouth show when we had a chat to them beforehand, so we knew tonight was set to be memorable.
