LIVE: Mallory Knox / Led By Lanterns @ Gorilla, Manchester

Going to a band’s final ever show or tour will never feel quite right, and it seems like we’ve already seen far more than we’d like to in 2019. Though not originally announced as a farewell tour, Mallory Knox’s current run was later confirmed to be their last; a

Dream State – ‘Primrose Path’

It’s easy to forget that Dream State have only released two EPs so far. As their live show has gone from strength to strength and their fanbase has boomed over the last two years, they already feel like an intrinsic part of the UK alternative music scene, drawing huge

Beartooth release live video

Hot on the heels of their country-inspired ‘Blackbird Sessions’ EP, Beartooth have now released a live video for ‘Bad Listener’, taken from their 2018 album ‘Disease’. Filmed at Germany’s Rock Am Ring earlier this year in front of 70,000 people by The Work Of Jar, it’s the

LIVE: Acres / Parting Gift / Captives @ Key Club, Leeds

Festival season may now be becoming a distant memory, but there’s always an upside to the long, sunny days of summer disappearing – mostly that it means the return of gig season, spending our evenings in darkened rooms with some of our favourite bands (and, probably, a few pints).

LIVE: Trash Boat / Capstan / Doll Skin @ Stylus, Leeds

Leeds Stylus is a venue that will be familiar to any long time attendees of Slam Dunk Festival – until 2015, it was host to their second stage in the ever confusing rabbit warren that is Leeds University’s Student Union (seriously, Leeds students, how do you NOT get lost

There aren’t too many bands creating proper, straight up pop punk these days – and even fewer who are doing it well. Enter Chicago four piece Sleep On It, who on debut ‘Overexposed’ captured the heart of all that has made this genre so well-loved over the last decade

Parkway Drive announce European Revolution 2020 tour

Fresh from taking Bloodstock by storm this summer, as well as playing to gigantic crowds across Europe at the likes of the legendary Wacken Open Air, Australian metalcore heavyweights Parkway Drive have now announced their return next April with the ‘Viva The Underdogs – European Revolution’ tour. It’s set to

The Faim – ‘State Of Mind’

When The Faim first appeared on UK shores a year and a half ago, they had just two songs to their name – Panic! At The Disco-esque anthem ‘Saints Of The Sinners’, and poppy hit ‘Midland Line’. It didn’t stop the Australians making a considerable impact as they spent

LIVE: The Faim / Woes / Charming Liars @ Arts Club, Liverpool

Sitting in the city’s bustling and trendy Ropewalks district, Liverpool’s Arts Club takes residence in an unassuming old building a stones throw from copious bars and beer gardens (not that we’ve quite got the weather for using outdoor spaces today). Tonight, we’re in the venue’s Loft room, an intimate

Grayscale – ‘Nella Vita’

When Philadelphia group Grayscale took to social media to unceremoniously boot out drummer Nick Veno earlier this year, it caused quite the stir. Fans were upset, headlines were made – but still, something didn’t seem quite right. As it turned out, it was all part of an entertaining (if
