CKY live @ The Wedgewood Rooms
CKY bought late 90s early 00s nostalgia to the Wedgewood Rooms in Portsmouth on Wednesday night. The trio showcased their vast touring experience with a very accomplished set to a devoted crowd. Opening for CKY tonight were the Graveyard Johnnys. Also a three piece, Graveyard Johnnys are somewhat unique in that instead of a normal […]
Patent Pending @ London O2 Academy
Live from the O2 Academy in London, I had the pleasure of witnessing Patent Pending who provide nothing short of a good time when it comes to live shows, with the core energy and raw emotion they provide on stage you can’t help but find your way as close to the action as possible to get […]
While She Sleeps live @ The Talking Heads Southampton
Just 6 days after the release of their outstanding 3rd album You Are We, While She Sleeps proved to a sold out 350 capacity Talking Heads that they won’t be playing venues of this size for much longer. First up were Leeds alt rockers Fizzy Blood. As people still made their way into the venue, […]
Bury Tomorrow and Crossfaith @ Y Plas, Cardiff
Today sees the return of people to Cardiff’s students union during the Easter holidays for Bury Tomorrow’s Welsh leg of their UK headline tour! By the time I arrive at the venue, Black Peaks are halfway through their set and have the crowd entertained with their energetic stage presence. The band sound on top form […]
Holding Absence, Continents & Nightlives @ Clwb Ifor Bach
On Thursday, I was off to Clwb Ifor Bach to see Holding Absence at their sold out hometown show! I’m going to say now that the gig was insanely good! All bands smashed it and I really enjoyed myself. I went to the gig only knowing Holding Absence and Nightlives. I heard a lot of […]
Frank Carter and The Rattlesnakes @ The Wedgewood Rooms
Frank Carter and The Rattlesnakes bought their highly successful version of alternative punk to the Wedgewood Rooms as part of their sold out UK tour. Opening the bill were Blackpool alt stoner rockers, Strange Bones. Their big riffs and hyperactive frontman were a perfect fit for an opening band in an intimate venue such as […]
Temples at Electric Brixton
To celebrate the release of their new album, ‘Volcano’, Temples put on a psychedelic rock dream of a show at Brixton’s Electric. This tour sees the band play in the UK and Europe, bringing their 60’s sound to a host of eager ears. Creatures kicked off the night with a lively half hour of funky music. You […]
Deference @ Fuel, Cardiff
For the final part of Day of Deference, we bring you a live review of their show in Cardiff! Monday’s are dreary days aren’t they? With the weekend over (this Monday was made even worse with the fact it being Monday meant Creeper’s gig had finished which we were also at last night) and people […]
Blackberry Smoke @ O2 Academy Oxford
Support band and Blackberry Smoke label mates ‘Biters’ have a distinctly retro Glam/hair rock feel to them in both appearance and sound. They get a decent reception from a mixed age crowd with more appreciation coming from the older rockers and a well warmed up crowd ready for the main act. Blackberry Smoke’s tag line […]

Creeper w/ Milk Teeth, Energy and Puppy @ Electric Ballroom, London
A room half full for opening band Puppy, as a few heads bang in sync with the heavy tones provided getting a nice reception after each song. As they explain to the crowd about the “good bands coming up” it is noticeable that the bill is in perfect order as each band is announced, everyone […]

Sumo Cyco & Devilskin @ Birmingham o2 Academy
Opening the night were West Midlands based Rock band Sister Shotgun with a hometown show. Although this band was plagued with tech issues during their set, with the way they handled it, they showed true professionalism! A fairground-esc walk on track started, reminding me of similarities to ‘A Little Piece of Heaven’ by Avenged Sevenfold, […]
Gojira, Code Orange & Car Bomb live in Leeds
I was very curious about seeing Car Bomb live as not only had I not heard of them previously, I was also new to the mathcore genre. They were extremely confident and comfortable on stage, played as well together as any band I have seen previously although, I guess that’s to be expected considering they […]

It’s been a long time since Mallory Knox hit the road in the UK. The band are back with a new album, Wired, and this month are touring the UK with the incredible Fatherson and Lonely The Brave as support. We headed along to the opening night in Bristol. Kicking things off on the Wired […]

Lower Than Atlantis, Young Guns, Hands Like Houses & ROAM @ Great Hall, Cardiff
On a day where the people of Wales descended on Cardiff to celebrate the final day of the 2017 RBS Six Nations Championship (and drown their sorrows after Wales’ heartbreaking loss to France), rock fans were heading to Cardiff University’s Great Hall for a different reason. The reason; Lower Than Atlantis are closing out their […]
