ALTERNATIVE MUSIC REVIEWS

Tonight Alive – Limitless

This is an album that new fans will love as it is a fantastic entry point for newcomers but, old fans will have to put it on repeat to get used to this new sound.

Creeper @ Le Pub, Newport

Day two of Creeper's first ever headline tour rolls into South Wales at Newport's premier independent music venue Le Pub.

Escape the Fate @ Electric Ballroom, London

The sun is out and Camden is the destination for US rockers Escape The Fate. As it is the last date of the Hate Me tour, anticipation is high for a spectacular performance as the band look to end their latest European stint with a bang...

The Shapers – Reckless Youth

Toulouse Pop Punk band ‘The Shapers’ release their EP ‘Reckless Youth’ on the 26th February. Past winners of best up and coming band and have shared the stage with Punk legends Pennywise and NOFX is certainly a dream that’s coming true for this alternative punk trio.

Creeper – The Stranger EP

Southampton goth-punks Creeper have brought new life into a jaded rock scene of almost identical releases and copycat bands since their formation in 2014, uniting a group of misfits into The Callous Heart.

Motionless in White/New Years Day/Silent Screams @ The Fleece, Bristol

A trip over the border to Bristol for the penultimate date on the rescheduled Beyond the Barricade tour. The whole idea of the tour was to play smaller venues again and get rid of barriers for a more intimate feel and The Fleece is an ideal venue.

Bury Tomorrow – Earthbound

"As a whole, it really encompasses the true spirit of metalcore, developing on previous success to provide thundering new material for fans to sink their teeth into" - Bethan Adams

Turnover at The Exchange, Bristol

Back on January 15th I had the pleasure of seeing Turnover live for the first time! I only got into them not long before the show but I am glad I did.

More Than Most – Impossible is Temporary

This exciting EP is the product of an insanely talented band and an acclaimed producer in Justin Hill. It is a must listen as it is sure to propel the band to dizzy heights in 2016.

Ships Have Sailed – Moodswings

I enjoy the techno aspects and feel that they are blended well with the musical style and singing. It is full of fantastic tracks that really characterize the singer’s emotions, which is what really matters to me.

Aiden – The Last Sunrise Tour @ The Scene, Swansea

Following on from the Beyond the Barricade tour in Bristol, was a trip back across the border to a very rainy and windy Swansea for The Last Sunrise tour at The Scene.

RHYN – Absence

The band is Rhyn who’ll be hitting the music scene as hard as plantar fasciitis hits the soul of the foot. They have been likened to hard hitting bands such as Muse and Biffy Clyro and I did see the name of Nirvana crop up too.

Basement – Promise Everything

Previous releases 'Colourmeinkindness' and 'I Wish I Could Stay Here' will of course, have their cult following but in comparison to 'Promise Everything', they simply no longer suffice...

Thirty Silver – Lost Saints

Thirty Silver are a post-punk/grunge duo from Boston, Massachusetts. They released their EP Lost Saints on January 21st.

Syren City, Koshiro, Tuskens and Pushing Daisies @ Bristol, Thekla

The 20th December saw a showcase of the best in the Bristol scene taking place on a boat at Thekla. The line-up was truly fantastic and was a fantastic way to see out the New Year for all the bands involved, who in their own right have all had successful 2015s.
