Coming all the way from Essex seems like quite a trek for a small Newcastle show; nonetheless, Tomorrow Belongs To Us have made said trek, and go on pretty much straight after doors. While their music is pretty bog-standard by any stretch of the imagination, it’s worth noting vocalist Rob Maddison has a mad hefty roar in his lungs. Surely he’d be a lot better suited to a metalcore band that this somewhat bland hybrid of A Day To Remember-esque easycore. It’s not that the band do anything particularly wrong at all, but they pull out a mixed box of songs that sound like it’s all just been done before, and the quintet need to really find their sound to progress any further.
Ok, so, this is a bit of a weird one, as tonight is the exclusive video shoot of My Chemical Romance’s Planetary (GO!), which although was only announced the day before, naturally sold out in a matter of minutes.
Following their big rock star support slot on the Kerrang! Tour, Philly’s The Wonder Years return to Kingston for a show that’s a lot more suited to them; tonight, it’s all about stage dives and high fives.
Whilst they plough the UK with their melodic-metalcore sound; Forever Never have decided upon releasing something a little different to say the least; their latest offering comes in the form of the I Can’t Believe it’s Not Metal! EP, which is pretty much as it says on the tin: a cover album that sounds absolutely horrendous on paper, let’s see how it pans out.
Durham Live Lounge is really starting to pick off it’s feet now; in the past half a year or so since it’s opening, the venue has played host to the likes of Gallows and the Eighties Matchbox B-Line Disaster, as well as Anathema and Welsh heroes Funeral For A Friend still to come. Tonight, plays host to Glasgow’s Twin Atlantic on a pretty intimate outing around the UK in preperation for their highly-anticipated debut full-length yet to be released; the attendance is a bit thin, let’s put the band’s mettle to the test…
It’s a glorious time for UK hardcore at present – there’s so many gems sprouting up all over the country in recent times, and Reading five-piece Golden Tanks are no exception. The name assumedly being a homage to the Cancer Bats song of the same name, they don’t sound too unlike the Canadian outfit. This self-titled debut offering oozes personality and physical presence from the get go.
