Hollywood Undead, Loathe @ Leeds o2 Academy

Hollywood Undead at the Leeds o2 Academy is, thus far, the biggest gig I've reviewed. They're also, as the saying goes, not my cup of tea. However, Avatar aren't my cup of tea. Royal Republic aren't (really) my cup of tea. Five Finger Death Punch definitely aren't my cup of tea. And I enjoyed all of those bands live.

Introducing Wake Up Hate – the band proving that rock ain’t dead and never will be

It's not really a debate that last Christmas I has some amazing presents. I got some coloured Judas Priest vinyl, some Rise Against, Nikki Sixx's photography book and lots of chocolate. But one thing I hadn't realised was that this year I would have a late present. Wake Up Hate officially became a band and released their debut single 'The Cycle' on Christmas Eve, but I'd been too caught up in the festivities to hear it. When I did hear it, it changed a lot of things, namely my perception of debut singles. These guys hadn't just hashed out a first song to get there name out there.
