On Monday November 3rd, Midland hardcore punk band We Fight Like Kids release their
debut EP, 'Superficial Behaviour'. However we're premiering their new video for 'Falconer'
right here on Already Heard.
For Scottish quartet Alburn, their latest EP ('Mouthful of Glass') has been a longtime coming. Having undergone a slight line-up since their formation in 2007, 'Mouthful of Glass'
showcases a significant amount of growth and maturity. We spoke to Pete Duthie to ask him about the bands background, that inevitable Brand New comparison, the Scottish music
scene and more.
On first listen we fell in love Noyo Mathis and knew that 'Endure' needed to be heard. It's post hardcore meets emo meets indie meets math rock. Take a listen to the full EP right here.
Without a doubt Neck Deep are one of this years breakout bands. After kicking off the year
with the release of their debut LP, 'Wishful Thinking', the Wrexham pop-punk five piece haven’t stopped touring since. From festival appearances throughout the UK and Europe to 2 months in North America as part of the Vans Warped Tour. We caught up with vocalist Ben Barlow and bassist Fil Thorpe-Evans at the Leeds Festival. They discussed their past festival experiences, supporting Blink-182, their up and coming UK headline tour and being
“leaders” of the UK pop-punk movement.
Packing stadium sized rock anthems with an incredibly striking emotional punch, and graced with one of the most staggeringly unique vocal talents to have graced the UK Rock scene in a long time, Cambridge’s Lonely The Brave have become one of the single most talked about new bands to emerge in recent years. With their debut album ‘The Day’s War’ finally released this week, Already Heard caught up with lead guitarist Mark Trotter and Bassist
Andrew Bushen at last weekend’s Leeds Festival.

Canterbury have announced their split as a band and will be commemorate this with 3 final shows this December.
Having released three albums to their name, including this year’s 'Dark Days', the band announced their decision to break up via Facebook with the following statement.
We take this opportunity to say Thank You. Thank you to everybody who has at any point over the last 7 years, considered themself a fan of our band ‘Canterbury’. We have lived, breathed, and literally poured our entire existence into this musical adventure for the last 7 years, and that is why we feel great thanks are in order for everyone who has made it possible for us to make it work for so long.
It is with heavy, but extremely proud and high-held hearts, that we are announcing there are no plans to write, record and release another Canterbury album.
The three albums we have released, and the hundreds of shows that we have played as Canterbury, have given us years of joy, and the feeling of being able to have left a mark in musical history, as a band that started when we were just school mates, is a blissfully satisfying one.
It’s been an unforgettable journey since the very beginning, and although it might not have not got us to where we wanted to be, we have the satisfaction of knowing we did everything we could, the way that WE wanted to, with the utmost integrity, and the music will endure.
We never want to say never, but for now, it is time for us to put this chapter behind us
We are all the very best of friends, and we are all still very much musicians.
Once again, we want to take this opportunity to say thank you. Thank you to everyone who gave it their all behind the scenes, thank you to the bands who took us on tour, thank you to the people who came to our shows. Those who stood at the back if the room and nodded along, and those who sung their hearts out. Thank you to everybody who has ever been a part of supporting Canterbury.
We are playing 3 very special shows at the end of the year; we would be very pleased to see as many of you as we can at them. We won’t be announcing any more, it’s just these 3, so if you can make it to one, please do.
We will finish off in London’s Islington Academy, and we fully intend on this being an absolute celebration of all that we have done, and everything we are about. That will be made possible with your help. The last thing we will ask from you as fans of our band.
There is so much more that we could, and will say, but for now, just one last time, Thank You.

17th Flapper, Birmingham
18th Sound Control, Manchester
