INTERVIEW: Divide (12/02/2018)

There are a lot of promising up-and-coming bands that are coming out of Scotland right now, and alternative rock five-piece Divide are certainly one of them. They’ve been drumming up a lot of hype for themselves, having supported fellow Glaswegians Vukovi, getting airplay on Scuzz and BBC Radio 1, and releasing their debut EP ‘Embers’ in November last year. Not bad at all for an unsigned band.

INTERVIEW: Escape The Fate (10/02/2018)

Las Vegas’ own Escape The Fate have enjoyed the emo scene fame for over ten years since the release of their inception back in 2005, and were one of the forerunning acts in the whole MySpace generation.

INTERVIEW: Lifetight (06/02/2018)

It really does seem like Dead! have been touring the circuit forever now, but, believe it or not, the London four-piece have only just released their first full-length record. ‘The Golden Age Of Not Even Trying’ is full of hip shaking rock ‘n’ roll style pop rock tunes, and is sure to cause a stir around with a mainstream audience.

INTERVIEW: Jamie Lenman (03/02/2018)

Though not short of his established talent and gusto, with his previous and debut solo album ‘Muscle Memory’ back in 2013, British singer/songwriter and former Reuben frontman Jamie Lenman seemed to be somewhat testing the waters no only of his capabilities, but also in finding out how much of and how passionate of a fanbase for his musical output still remained after sitting it out for just over half a decade.

INTERVIEW: Ice Nine Kills (27/01/2018)

It goes without saying that tales of horror, gore, and macabre go hand-in-hand with the heavy music community, and Boston’s Ice Nine Kills certainly have a flair and knack for it.

Metalcore titans Asking Alexandria haven’t been short of excitement over the last few years with the departure of singer Danny Worsnop, the arrival and departure of replacement of Denis Stoff, and then the drama that followed not long after which saw Stoff leave and Worsnop return into the frame.
