We are incredibly pleased to stream 'Ugly', the new EP by The Sinking Feeling. Straight out
of Glasgow, the band combine 90s emo with hints of grunge and dual male/female vocals
for a tastier treat on the ears. It’s a huge wave of 90s nostalgia from this Scottish 3 piece.
After taking a break last year, Hevy Fest is back for 2014 and even though it’s downsized
from 3 days to 2, there still loads of awesome bands on offer. With over 40 bands playing
over the 2 days, there’s bound to be some clashes. Already Heard is here to give you 10
must-see bands to see at Hevy Fest next month.
Influenced by the likes of Jimmy Eat World, Saves The Day and The Get Up Kids, Sheffield quartet O Captain have bucket loads of potential of their debut EP is anything to go from. Entitled 'Ghetto Hikes', the bands lyrical sentiment mixed with a stirring indie-pop sensibility quickly won us over. We spoke to bassist Ryan Smith to find out more about the band, their influences, what Sheffield bands we should be listening to and more.
Ww've got reviews and a whole load of live photos from UK Tech Fest 2014.
Having reached over the half way mark, July is a good time to reflect upon the smorgasbord
of great albums that have come out so far this year. Read on to find out what the Already Heard team picked as their favourite releases of the year so far.
After 2 years away, Sonisphere makes it return to the UK. Check out our full coverage of the festival.
Having released their new self-titled album released this week on Topshelf Records, New York punk band SIRS provide a scrappy, energetic sound that is at home alongside their label mates. The band consists of Justin Jurgens, Dave Benton, Kyle Seely and Hart Seely.
With split releases alongside Chalk Talk and run, WALK! under their belt, the full-length is an explosive assault of rugged, screeching punk rock. This summer the band will be touring the US with Spook Houses.
Already Heard recently caught a quick word with SIRS to see what song they would re-record, what they would be doing other than music and more.
If I could re-record one song it would be…
SIRS: “Beaver Fever” off our first split 7”. We like the song, but that recording just doesn’t sound very good at all. Also we play it a lot different now than we did when we recorded it.
If I could re-live one tour/show it would be…
SIRS: Sirs/Spook Houses Summer 2012 baby (it hasn’t happened yet)! We got a ton of awesome shows lined up for this summer including a few festivals with bands we all really like, and it’s with our best buds Spook Houses. It’s gonna be a really good time for sure.
If I could play with one band it would be…
SIRS: I really don’t know. We’ve been so lucky to play with as many awesome bands as we already have, and I don’t want to throw out some crazy name.
If I could bring back any band that have split up, it would be…
SIRS: We all grew up listening to Bear Vs. Shark so that could be cool, but they’re half reincarnated in Bars of Gold, who we got the chance to play with last year (and it ruled so much). Probably them or The Marked Men.
If I wasn’t playing music, I would be…
SIRS: Brewing beer (drinking beer), going to school still.
If I could play a different genre it would be…
SIRS: 80’s electro-pop.
If I could have written any song it would be…
SIRS: ‘Tears of Rage’ by Bob Dylan.
If I could have written any album it would be…
SIRS: ‘In Casino Out’ At The Drive-In.
If I could play any other instrument, it would be…
SIRS: I mostly just want to learn to sweep pick on guitar.
'SIRS' by SIRS is available now on Topshelf Records.
