Palaye Royale made a name for themselves with debut full length Boom Boom Room (Side A) which, despite being underwhelming in my opinion, had its moments. Boom Boom Room (Side B) legitimately felt like it was indeed a B-side album, yet seemed to fare well with fans. Two years on, they return with The Bastards, their third outing, which has been promoted for a long while with a slew of singles.
It would be dishonest to say I've been a fan of Coast To Coast, but I have been aware of the band for some time. Having turned down the chance to review their 2018 EP 'The World Doesn't Work', I hadn't given them much of a thought until new EP 'Sovereign' landed in my inbox.
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.
The phoenix rising from the ashes of Heck, Haggard Cat appeared on the scene two years ago with their debut record Challenger. Although having left the crazed hardcore behind, their energy levels have not dipped; Haggard Cat are purveyors of high octane rock n’ roll and their new album Common Sense Holiday is 45 minutes of raucous fun.
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.
Punk supergroup, Bandaid Brigade release their debut album “I’m Separate” on the 21st January. The architects are members of Pears, Street Dogs and The Gamits collectively, Zach Quinn vocals, Brian Wahstrom, keys and vocals, Paul Rucket drums and guitarist Chris Fogal. The album was recorded in Denver and co-produced by Fogal himself.
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.
The year is 2019 and, after much promise, Sleeping With Sirens have returned with their eagerly anticipated sixth studio effort. Following on from the poppier offerings of 2017's major label record 'Gossip', the band promised some heavier tunes more akin to 'Let's Cheers To This'.
We waited a while to publish this because we have been trying to get our heads around this mega tour announcement. It's taken us a long time to do but we are super excited and know you are too!
Mallory Knox return with their eagerly anticipated forth album and, in a brave move, it's self-titled. When it comes to heightening expectations, that's one thing that does it. Self-titling implies that this record, these songs, are definitive of the band.
Junior have spent two years writing 'Beautiful Life', recording it across three studios, with the simple goal of pushing out the boat both with their own sound, and with the messages they can get out in their songs. They work long and then work hard, and it's safe to say that they've proved they're not just another pop punk band.
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!
