What a hell of a couple of years it has been. It’s indisputable that politically and socially, there’s been an ever-increasing division and segregation, including the lead up and indeed the fall out of both the Brexit and US election results; the issues at the forefront worldwide are too many in number to list off in this review. But, as with any aftermath from dismay and times of darkness, it’s important to remember that there’s always something to salvage.

Rating:

Dallas, Texas outfit Blindwish are one of the latest signees to Rise Records, and, in sharing a label with the likes of PVRIS, Knuckle Puck, and Of Mice & Men, who have all been gearing up for new releases over the past few months, there’s a chance a smaller band like Blindwish could be overlooked.

With the climate of the world today, the word “outrage” would be a pretty brief and direct, yet nonetheless apt word to describe what an awful lot of people are feeling and indeed witnessing all too often.

Rating:

It’s been just over two years since Being As An Ocean dropped their self-titled record, making our wait from then until the release of ‘Waiting For Morning To Come’ our longest so far for new music from the Californian collective, and that period was a turbulent one for the quartet.

Rating:

Germany’s resident electronicore party band Eskimo Callboy are back with ‘The Scene’, their anticipated follow-up to their 2015 offering, ‘Crystals’. For the longest time, the band gave the impression that they were self aware that they were the band that willingly and intentionally wrote songs with terrible lyrics, and, admittedly, this is what helped them to grow and expand their following.

Rating:

South Coast’s The Gospel Youth are still a young band, only forming back in 2014. They steadily began making a name for themselves with some successful support shows across the UK, and soon caught the attention of Rise Records and made a strong appearance across the Vans Warped Tour. Now, they’re here with their debut record, ‘Always Lose’, which in defiance of its title is nothing but a win for these pop-punk newcomers.

Rating:

If you’re a fan who is even remotely invested in Brand New, especially over the past few years, you’ll be more than familiar with the smoke and mirrors that has surrounded the eventual release of ‘Science Fiction’, the enigmatic and emotive alternative rockers’ fifth opus and declaration of finality.
