Feature: "If I..." with SIRS - Already Heard
This week Canterbury emo-rock four piece Moose Blood release their debut full-length.
Entitled 'I'll Keep You In Mind, From Time To Time', the record contains eleven songs that
wear their hearts on their sleeves and is wrapped in a plethora of catchy hooks. We spoke to two fourths of the band as drummer Glenn Harvey and bassist Kyle Todd discussed the
album, working with Beau Burchell, joining up with No Sleep Records, and more.
The new EP from Manchester's Hora Douse, 'Crash' is streaming right here on Already Heard. Give it a listen and relive those older days when post hardcore could be a little bit twangly.
Last month we were spoilt for choice when it came to picking our must hear releases for September, and October is no different. Find out what the Already Heard team picked out as their five essential releases for October.
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.

Feature: “If I…” with SIRS

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.
