Introducing Wake Up Hate – the band proving that rock ain’t dead and never will be

It's not really a debate that last Christmas I has some amazing presents. I got some coloured Judas Priest vinyl, some Rise Against, Nikki Sixx's photography book and lots of chocolate. But one thing I hadn't realised was that this year I would have a late present. Wake Up Hate officially became a band and released their debut single 'The Cycle' on Christmas Eve, but I'd been too caught up in the festivities to hear it. When I did hear it, it changed a lot of things, namely my perception of debut singles. These guys hadn't just hashed out a first song to get there name out there. They were shooting for the stars from the get go.

Dave Hause – Kick

Dave Hause’s new record ‘Kick’ is simply ten songs about being strong, understanding that we all struggle and kicking back against the things that kick you when you’re down. But underneath the lyrical meaning, what we actually have here is an album that’s actually very, very good. And I’ll explain why.

Busted with support from The XCERTS and Young Brando @ Motorpoint Arena, Cardiff

Seventeen years on from their inception, Busted are still going strong as they head to Cardiff on the mid-point of the Half Way There tour! Support comes from The XCERTS and Young Brando. There is a mix to the crowd as we wait for doors to open, with teeny-boppers covered in glitter and young adults and mothers reminiscing about the good old days of when Busted first came about.

Deaf Havana, The LaFontaines and Hot Milk @ The Leadmill, Sheffield

Having only gotten into Deaf Havana after their latest record 'Rituals', but certainly liking what I heard, I jumped at the chance to check out their live show with my friend. With two other, very different bands on the bill as well, I knew it'd be an interesting night.
