US pop-rockers Set It Off announce October tour of the UK.
New New Years Day record 'Unbreakable' comes after a dissatisfied band scrapped a tonne of songs and set out to write a new batch, all ready to explode and show both the band's anger and pride. Costello wanted to go somewhere different, and she has.
Sometimes you can judge what a show is going to be like by the crowd. Dream State at the Key Club in Leeds was one of those shows.
As the wonder tour of Mayday Parade and The Wonder Years rolled into Bristol, we sat down with Mayday Parade frontman Derek Sanders to find out his thoughts on their back catalogue, favourite things from Sunnyland and his circus act.
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’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.
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.

Will Pearce went and saw Normandie at Dingwalls in London, a band he last saw four years ago when they supported the now defunct Yellowcard. Here is what he thought of the show...
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.
2000trees Festival is all about the music, with more than 120 of the absolute best new and underground acts from the worlds of rock and indie, plus some more established acts to close out the night.
