It seems like with the release of their sophomore record ‘The Warmth Of A Dying Sun’ in May, Woking collective Employed To Serve have been employed to claw their way from out of the underground, into the wider world of their more established contemporaries, and to trample all underfoot who get in their way. They begin their campaign of dominance with their first headline UK tour.

Doing their part as much as they can to promote and give back to the scene, and to be much more than just an international merchandise and clothing store, Impericon not only having their annual touring festival, but also their smaller tour run named the Never Say Die! Tour across Europe to end off their year. For the 2018 edition, New York breakdown devotees Emmure are enlisted for headline duties.

For the past year or so, Slaves have had their fair share of speed bumps. After playing what were initially intended to be their last shows ever in April of last year, the band retracted their dissolve pretty quickly, instead continuing on as a three-piece.

Though not an overly dominant presence in the world of rock in recent years, at least not in comparison to their breakthrough years back in 2004 and 2005 with their hits ‘Broken’ and ‘Remedy’ respectively, South Africa’s Seether have been consistently producing and putting out catchy, hard-hitting, and formidable alt rock/post-grunge work throughout their now seven album long career.

Let’s face it, when you think of ska-punk, you think of Reel Big Fish. The California heavyweights and ‘Sell Out’ hitmakers have now been around for over two decades, which is mind-boggling really. This year, they’re headlining the Fireball: Fuelling The Fire Tour, and, tonight at the O2 Kentish Town Forum, you can practically taste the cinnamon whiskey in the air.

Not many bands get to the grand old age of twenty and still manage to sell out shows all around the world, so with Placebo being in the middle of that exact kind of tour, tonight should be considered a celebration.

2017 has been a big year for Neck Deep. After smashing through their summer stint at festivals like Slam Dunk Festival and Vans Warped Tour, before dropping their progressive third studio album, ‘The Peace And The Panic’. It’s understandable why there is a lot of hype for the band’s biggest UK tour to date to support the release.

Since they dropped their controversial video for their provoking track, ‘Goodnight Alt-Right’, which rubbed up a lot of people in the wrong way (just check the YouTube comments), it seems a lot of eyes have been set on Stray From The Path. Of course, anyone who has any partial knowledge of the band knows of their outspoken approach to politics and hot social topics, and they’ve brought their engaging ethos and mentality over to the UK.

Any fans of Thy Art Is Murder and general followers of the deathcore community will undoubtedly be aware of the turbulence of their careers over the past couple of years following the release of their 2015 record, ‘Holy War’, specifically surrounding the exit and return of vocalist, CJ McMahon. Yet, here they are with a new record under their belt, ‘Dear Desolation’, and eyes set on world domination. Their current objective: a UK tour.

Rating:

More than a decade deep into their career, Arizona metalcore collective blessthefall are yet to make an exploding impression on the UK to the extent that they hold back in the US. Across their five albums, they’ve for the most part stuck to their guns of what they know and are good since their inception and, though they may not be filling venues on UK shores to the size that they do back home, nothing quite beats that intimate club experience.
