Mallory Knox by Mallory Knox album | Album Review

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 ‘Beautiful Life’ album review

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.

Sunsleeper – You Can Miss Something & Not Want It Back

Sunsleeper's new album 'You Can Miss Something & Not Want It Back' is a bold statement, both in title and music. They don't shy away from the emo label, readily embracing their influences on the new record. But the fact is, anything could happen on an emo revival album.

Strange Bones- Blitz Pt 1

Blackpool punks, Strange Bones plan to hit your ears with several EPs over the course of 2019. Blitz Pt 1 is the first of these, recorded by the four piece at their home studio and mixed by Thomas Mitchener.

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.
