Foes @ Fuel Rock Club, Cardiff. 24th October 2016 | Live Review

Finally FOES from Liverpool, took to the stage. I thought that this band would get a lot more faces in the crowd as it was their show but again it was mostly a few people and the other bands showing their support. Throughout every track Chris’ vocals were highlighted and his vocals were melodic and crisp. The lead vocals and the backing vocals blended naturally. The guitarist was very energetic and was moving about on stage quite a bit.

The Orphan The Poet – Terrible Things | Album Review

The Orphan The Poet really reminded me a lot of a young Mayday Parade. As a huge fan of Mayday, I really enjoyed the parallels between both bands — they are eerily similar. If you’re a fan of Mayday Parade I highly suggest checking out The Orphan The Poet. I can’t wait to see what’s next for them!
