Less Than Jake and Goldfinger have been added to the Fueling the Fire tour

Each year, Fireball puts on one hell of a line-up for its Fueling the Fire tour. Well now, we have the headliners for 2019's run and they are incredible!

Weatherstate – Born A Cynic

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.

Slam Dunk North 2019 Review!

Temple Newsam, Leeds, 25th May 2019: Never will you find a more wretched hive of snapbacks and Vans. As the fans begin entering the festival grounds, the day is bright and warm... sadly it won’t last, but rain, thunder or snow wouldn’t have kept the legions away from Leeds today.

Broadening Horizons – How Slam Dunk is appealing to more fans than ever.

Slam Dunk has long been seen as a predominantly pop-punk festival. Although they have often featured a smattering of heavier or more abrasive bands, much of the higher reaches of the festival bills have been dominated by relatively inoffensive bands. In the last two years we have seen a rise in truly interesting aggressive music with the likes of Employed To Serve winning Kerrang!’s album of the year award last year and groups such as Code Orange making a splash on the global stage with a Grammy nomination. As Slam Dunk has manoeuvred to keep pace with this scene change, so has it looked to widen it's vision to further encompass a generation of fans who gazed longingly over The Pond at Vans Warped Tour in the late 1990s.

Phoxjaw and The King Is Dead at Satan’s Hollow, Manchester

It is a terrible crime that both of these bands find themselves playing a half empty small venue in Manchester on a Wednesday night, as both are perfect examples of new and exciting bands, drawing from the past while striving towards new territory.

Introducing The Hunting Project – the next big thing in the hardcore world

It is my pleasure to finally introduce to you a band called The Hunting Project. I've known these guys for some time, meeting them via my Love It To Death Instagram (Love It To Death is my personal music blog, in case you were wondering) back when they had no music out and were called Grizzly!. How times have changed.

Crows – Silver Tongue

In recent years, there has been an incredible surge in post punk music. From the dark, gothic overtones of a band like Grave Pleasures to the loaded political gunshots of Idles. The wave of 1980s nostalgia that has gripped the world for the last decade has gradually seeped into music and these bands are now coming to the fore. Crows are the latest, and they’re mixing that post-punk sound with a noisy riff driven edge. On the spectrum of this scene they fall somewhere in the middle of the two bands above and that is perhaps the biggest problem with this album.
