Alter Bridge – ‘Walk The Sky’ album review

Alter Bridge have established themselves in recent years as one of the most formiddable forces in rock. With frontman Myles Kennedy's soaring vocals that even landed him as vocalist for Slash, coupled with grungy and intricate guitars, there's a certain something Alter Bridge have got that other bands lack. The big question is, have they carried it on only new album 'Walk The Sky', which follows my own personal favourite AB full length 'The Last Hero'

Gender Roles – Prang

In 2018, the month of September, day 28th  approximately 6pm, upstairs at the Paper Dress Vintage in Hackney, Mare street, I witnessed a three piece band from Brighton called Gender Roles, these musicians consist of drummer Jordan Lilford, guitarist/vocalist Tom Bennett and bassist Jared Tomkins who all met/formed in 2015 at Jordan’s Brighton Pride party. In this thirty-minute set, they aided my tinnitus and enabled the love of music. A year later these punk/garage rockers release their debut record PRANG, it’s here in my grasps and is ready for release on August 30th via Big Scary Monsters. Recorded with producer Ian Sadler at Emeline Studios in Kent over ten days.
