Armed For Apocalypse's third album Ritual Violence is out now!
Torchbearer have released their debut full-length album Solace and it is one you really should listen to!
Cope released their debut album The Shock Doctrine on 22nd of May. A hardcore assault designed to scream (literally) about the world's ills, Cope intend to draw attention to the crumbling state of the modern world. Fitting, really, given recent events.
Political rabble rousers Stray From The Path return with their 9th album Internal Atomics. The hardcore four-piece from Long Island have come along way since their beginnings at the turn of the millennium, and this latest release sees them hit new heights.
Counterparts new record has finally landed; another serving of in your face, aggressive hardcore tunes. 'Nothing Left To Love' is there sixth outing, and sees the band harnessing unashamedly their signature sound, with only mild deviations.
Knowing full well I was set for a loaded night of pop punk, at times with a sprig of hardcore added in, I decided the only worthy shirt for the gig was my As It Is one. Then, in classic broke pop punk fashion, I used the day ticket from my bus journey earlier to get to Leeds, thus not spending extra cash on the train. 20 chicken nuggets down, I strolled to the venue, prepared for a night of mosh pit observing/avoiding.
We are absolutely delighted to be bringing you the exclusive premiere of Scottish hardcorers Dead By Monday's brand new video for Bed Of Nails!
Out of south Wales come Torchbearer. A hardcore punk quartet with a brand new EP on the way. Against the Tide is it’s name. Recorded across two studios, the EP is made up of five, furious tracks that are sure to draw some interest from fans of hardcore.
Let's not beat about the bush here, The St Pierre Snake Invasion have one of those band names you just don't take seriously, like Chunk! No, Captain Chunk!. The fact is, Chunk and most other bands who have made it anywhere despite having a ridiculous name can back themselves up with good music. With the new record from The St Pierre Snake Invasion, however, the question lies not in the name, but in the music.
As the campsite opens for five day campers, we asked one of our senior writers and festival attendee Tom Butterworth to give us his low-down of the ones to watch.
The Punk 5-piece from the big city of London EAT DIRT. thrash their way through 14 songs with the majority of the tracks being between 1-2 minutes long collectively completing the record in 26 minutes. 'Short and sweet' is a pretty accurate term to use here but we should forget about sweetness part of that statement, sure the songs are bangers, but sweet is not a word that works in this pacey-punk madness.
It seems these days I write the word 'punk' in practically every piece I write, be that punk of the pop variety, of the hardcore variety, or of the not very good variety. 'Born A Cynic', Weatherstate's first full length, ticks the boxes of the first two.
