The Scenes and Beasts, The Buff Club, Glasgow

For today's gig I headed over to the Buff Club Glasgow. It is one of those venues that you never forget when you go there as there is always a lingering smell of vomit in the upstairs venue...however, this odd inclusion was not a reflection of tonight's performances...

Architects – All Our Gods Have Abandoned Us

Architects, are a five piece hardcore band from Brighton, formed over a decade ago back in 2004, the band have now finally released their epic seventh album, 'All Our Gods Have Abandoned Us.' And if you're a big fan of their previous album, 'Lost Forever // Lost Together' then you'll definitely be a fan of this eleven track killer.

Upload Festival 2016

Before I start my review I would like to say that the UK needs more festivals like this one. It is rare that you will see such a great line up on a festival bill, especially one that has some of the best unsigned / DIY bands in the UK, so with anticipated excitement I took the long drive down to Wakefield for the first ever Upload Festival at Warehouse23.

Hacktivist release Hate video

Milton Keynes genre bending quintet Hacktivist are gearing up for their support slot with Issues and Slam Dunk appearances with the release of new video Hate.

The People The Poet @ Undertone 14/05/16

Although small, tonight went well. It is nice to see a packed club, showing that people still enjoy actual live bands. All acts were outstanding. The People The Poet, The Broadcasts and Vince James all showed that true talent really does still exist.

Andy Black @ Tramshed, Cardiff

Cardiff's newest live music venue was the destination for the Welsh leg of Andy Black's Homecoming Tour and quite shockingly, the sun was out! Andy released debut solo album The Shadow Side on the 6th May, a very different direction from his Black Veil Brides day job but a great release!
