ALTERNATIVE MUSIC REVIEWS

Random Hand – Hit Reset

British ska-punkers Random Hand have released what could be their final album... and it's an absolute cracker. Read on.

Nothing But Thieves – Nothing But Thieves

Translating their great success with singles such as ‘Itch’, ‘Trip Switch’ and ‘Ban All The Music’ to a full-length album looked to be a difficult task. However, Nothing But Thieves have absolutely smashed it with this release and I cannot recommend this album enough - an album of the year contender, no doubt!

Remember The Fallen @ Fuel Cardiff

Fuel rock club in Cardiff was the venue for today's venture. An awesome little place complete with a pool table in the main room and then a back room for live music.

FIGHTSTAR – Behind The Devil’s Back

With their first album since 2009, Fightstar have returned. 'Behind The Devil's Back' is due to be released on the 16th of October and marks a new beginning for the band, which Charlie Simpson hopes "the fans will love" as much as the group themselves do.

Glass Harbour – Distance From Departure

North East quintet Glass Harbour formed in mid-2014 and wasted no time in creating a sound that has the power of The Ghost Inside and is reminiscent to Architects and Being As An Ocean. Debut EP Distance From Departure is released on October 16th.

Fearless Vampire Killers – Bruises

Fearless Vampire Killers are set to release mini-album Bruises on October 23rd. Elizabeth Birt reviewed their upcoming release...

Gaia Bleeds – Demo 2015

Seeming to have come from nowhere, a new release gaining a lot of widespread hype is the demo from a Scottish vegan straight edge band called Gaia Bleeds. However, I believe the hype is justified – an incredibly talented group, their demo consists of 3 tracks, all of which heavier and more packed with riffs and slams than the last.

The Serums EP ‘Fuzz Trap’ Launch Show

Gareth Rooke went to The Serum's EP 'Fuzz Trap' Launch Show. Here is his review...

Fall Out Boy At Cardiff Motorpoint Arena

Following on from the release of their highly successful American Beauty/American Psycho album, Fall Out Boy are currently touring the UK. I had the opportunity to see them performing on the 7th of October at Cardiff Motorpoint Arena.

Remember The Fallen – Traitor

South Wales post-hardcore band Remember The Fallen have been busy recording tracks for their new EP and ahead of their show at Fuel in Cardiff on Wednesday 14th October, they are releasing recently recorded track Traitor.

Neshiima and Amongst Thieves at Ivory Blacks, Glasgow

For today's gig I headed to the Ivory Blacks, a venue I haven't visited much in Glasgow to see 12 Stories High, Amongst Thieves and Neshiima.

Mallory Knox @ Y Plas

Mallory Knox have enjoyed a successful year since the release of album Asymmetry in October 2014 and to finish 2015, the rock quintet embarked on an aptly named Homecoming tour with support from Scottish trio The Xcerts and Florida pop punkers Set It Off.

Skarlett Riot, Glasgow

Gareth Rooke went and saw Skarlett Riot in Glasgow. Support came from Miami Monroe, The Colony and The Raven Age.

A Mouth Full Of Matches, Dead XIII, City Of Ashes, Little Ghost and Tirade in Manchester

Hey! Gareth Here! For this gig, I took the long trip to Manchester from Glasgow, to see five amazing bands at The Factory 251...

Lock & Key at Garage Attic, Glasgow

Gareth Rooke attended a gig full of Hardcore bands. Ironic thing is, Gareth isn't a massive Hardcore fan...was Lock and Key and co, good enough to win him over? Find Out Here!
