Lullaby – Never Let The Devil In

Lullaby’s debut EP Never Let The Devil In is a bouncy, hook filled rock release, that suggests bigger things are on the horizon for Lullaby. The EP itself is best described as rock however there are Brit pop influences throughout, and even hints of bands like Muse and Feeder as well as more modern bands […]

As Everything Unfolds @ Crowndale Club

Trauma PR hosted As Everything Unfolds’ single release show on Friday night. The evening was a showcase of up and coming British metal. Opening the night were mathcore two piece Death Goals. The noisy duo showed great energy and a great stage presence considering the size of the crowd. Further to this the songs they […]

Thumpermonkey – Electricity

Thumpermonkey’s new EP Electricity is a 4 track EP which attempts to capture the personality of the quartet. The EP focuses on what could be considered a concept or at least thematic basis of human foolishness. Unfortunately the alt rock four piece struggle to achieve much on this EP with each track falling rather flat. […]

Sheffield experimental instrumental band King Capisce are set to release their third studio album Memento Mori on 6th October. The record sees the band continue the jazz/rock crossover style. As expected the musical skill of this band can’t be questioned at any point throughout the album. The album opens with what is probably the most […]

Paceshifters – Waiting To Derail

Dutch alt-rock three piece, Paceshifters are set to release their new album Waiting To Derail on 6th October. The album continues to showcase the bands highly grunge influence sound, all the while it remains current and never sounds outdated. The main difference in this album to the trios previous works is the larger production, the […]

The Front Bottoms – 2000 Trees Interview

I sat down with Brian Sella of The Front Bottoms at 2000 Trees to talk about playing festivals, supporting Blink 182 and a new album. You’ve only just arrived but what are your first impressions of the festival? We kinda just stepped off the bus and saw the woods and the stages and stuff. But […]

The duo consist of vocalist/guitarist Lucinda Livingstone (L) and drummer Conor Dawson (C). How you finding Trees 2017 so […]

Citizen – As You Please

Citizen are set to release new album As You Please on 6th October. As You Please is a dark brooding album which is both introspective and aware of what’s going on elsewhere. The album approaches simple personal issues as well much larger social issues using meaningful metaphorical lyrics. Compared to its predecessors the album is […]

Killset – S.T.F.U

Killset released their sophomore album S.T.F.U on 7th July this year. Using producer Eddie Wohl once more, Killset maintain their late 90s, early 00s sound that is synonymous with Eddie’s work. The album is certainly a throwback and may provide some nostalgia, however it isn’t up to the standards of the most notable names of that […]

Bad Sign will release their monstrous debut album Live & Learn on July 14th through Basick Records. The London based trio have toured heavily since the release of their EP Destroy in 2014.
