When I first heard of Real Friends I was fresh to pop punk. I liked All Time Low, As It Is, Green Day and My Chemical Romance. I found their first two albums to be too brash and bordering on unlistenable. By the time Composure dropped I’d been to Slam Dunk Festival and, though I still believe their first two records to be poor, that third album really made me fall for them. ‘Stand Steady; is still their best song.
Hawthorne Heights have never really slowed since their inception. Their eighth full length, The Rain Just Follows Me, shows that the band still have a lot to say.
The Spill Canvas have made a comeback into what is a very different music world, but new album Conduit sounds like they don’t give a damn.
Waking up in a field full of alpacas with an acoustic guitar after being kidnapped by aliens and forced to play Discovering The Waterfront front to back – this is where the third and final episode of Silverstein’s Out Of This World virtual concert series kicks off.
In an attempt to bring you the fastest written review in history, fuelled by gig adrenaline and a singular Carlsberg, here is the lowdown on Silverstein’s Out Of This World, episode 2.
Silverstein have brought the live experience to your living room with their three-part concert series Out Of This World. However, the band are completely aware that it’s not the same, so they’ve spiced it up a little.
There’s no doubt Cheap Meat can write fun, catchy songs you’d expect from the likes of Weezer and Bowling For Soup. Their new record, aptly titled People Are The Worst, exemplifies this brilliantly.
With this brand new, self-titled full length, Young Culture have issued one of the most diverse and challenging records I’ve heard from the alt-rock scene in quite some time.
If All Time Low’s Nothing Personal got criticism for being too pop and not punk enough, All Distortions Are Intentional should definitely get the same treatment.
While I appreciate the sentiment in 'This Land Is Your Landfill', the new full length from The Homeless Gospel Choir, there's very little musical value in these thirty four minutes.
It seems these days that The Used are happy to push musical boundaries rather than shoot for a comeback album. After the (unwarranted) flop of 2017 double album outing The Canyon, a lot of fans seemed to give up on McCracken and co.. Two new singles 'Blow Me' and 'Paradise Lost, a poem by John Milton' reinstated some people's love for the band, but the people who will truly adore this masterpiece are those who aren't looking for an early 2000's sounding The Used, but those who are looking to see the band take on board everything they've learned from their previous seven outings.
After twenty years you'd expect the fusion of pop punk and post-hardcore that is Silverstein's trademark to have grown tired. That's not the case, though. In fact, it's quite the opposite.
