Like Moths To Flames – Pure Like Porcelain

Like Moths To Flames have released new EP Pure Like Porcelain. The EP highlights the next stage of the band said guitarist Zach Phishey: “I think the EP is just a small taste of where we could possibly go next as a band. If No Eternity is considered a return to form album, then the EP is expanding those boundaries again. The coolest thing to me about the outcome of the EP is how extreme the shift in dynamic can be from song to song while still feeling like a cohesive listening experience as a whole."

Justin Courtney Pierre ‘Ghost World’ EP review

Justin Courtney Pierre has been incredibly busy this year. New EP Ghost World is his third of 2021, boasting five new tracks for a hungry audience.

Wage War ‘Manic’ album review

I once scrolled on Instagram through a Wage War fan discussion. They had found little to enjoy from their (very good, if I do say so myself) 2019 outing Pressure, stating “if I listen to Wage War, I want it to be heavy”. They’ll be happy with Manic, for the most part.

Angels & Airwaves – Lifeforms

There was high expectations for Angels & Airwaves' sixth album Lifeforms (out today) after it was launched into space. And quite frankly it lives up to those expectations and more.

Bring Me The Horizon, You Me At Six and Nova Twins live in Cardiff

Live music is back! For our first live review since the pandemic took hold, deputy editor Lizi headed to Cardiff’s Motorpoint Arena to see Bring Me The Horizon, You Me At Six and Nova Twins.

Laura Jane Grace – At War with the Silverfish

Laura Jane Grace dropped surprise mini-album At War With The Silverfish at 4pm today through Big Scary Monsters.

Real Friends – ‘Torn In Two’ [review]

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 – The Rain Just Follows Me

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.

Tigress – Pura Vida

Tigress release their new album Pura Vida on Friday. We had an early listen and honestly, really enjoyed it.

Beach Riot – Subatomic Party Cool

It's taken Beach Riot three years to put debut album Subatomic Party Cool together but it was well worth the wait. It is released on September 17 through Alcopop! Records.

Justin Courtney Pierre – The Price of Salt

Motion City Soundtrack's Justin Courtney Pierre has released his solo record The Price of Salt. It's an interesting listen.

Young Culture – Godspeed

Young Culture released their new EP Godspeed on July 30 through Rude Records. The band want you to feel the emotions throughout and this is something you really do on a deep listen.

Capstan – Separate

Capstan recently released their new record Separate.

Sleep Waker – Alias

Sleep Waker release new record Alias today and it is something for the metal fans out there to sink their teeth into and enjoy.

Cognitive – Malevolent Thoughts Of A Hastened Extinction

Cognitive release their new record Malevolent Thoughts of a Hastened Extinction this week and its pretty much pure death metal brilliance.
