With Spring fast approaching and festival season starting soon, March sees a whole load of noteworthy releases. We take a look at five of the must hear releases this month.
Having only just formed last summer, Leeds punks Brawlers have quickly made a name for themselves for their insane live show. Now the quartet have unleashed their utterly brilliant debut EP 'I Am A Worthless Piece of Shit', an infectious collection of fun punk rock numbers. We talked to vocalist Harry George Johns to find out why the longtime friends formed
Brawlers and what 'I Am Worthless...' is all about.
After delivering one of the early contenders for album of the year, we catch up Modern Baseball to discuss ‘You’re Gonna Miss It All’, their forthcoming debut UK tour and miming
at the World Series.
In the second part of our "Studio Report" feature with Colt 45, the Cumbria punks finish their debut LP producer Romesh Dodangoda by recording vocals and more guitars. Take a look.
In the first of our new fortnightly feature where we highlight some of the most promising
bands in the pop-punk world, we talk to New York's Firestarter.
In the latest instalment of our "Tour Tales" feature, we join Wakefield quartet Morain on their recent tour supporting Durham four-piece Alexander.
With lead vocalist Matt Pryor having recently completed a solo UK tour, we highlight two albums from The Get Up Kids for the latest edition of "Versus". Already Heard writer Tom
Knott explains why 'Something To Write Home About' is "pure gold". Whilst Senior Editor
Sean Reid shows us why 'Guilt Show' shouldn't be dismissed.
McAllen, TX indie rock duo Sick/Sea have been compared Eisley, Copeland, Dear and the Headlights and recently joined Autumn + Colour Records. The sibling duo made up of Audrey and Cameron Scott are set to record a new album and with a sound that is influenced by a range of genres; from soothing jazz to plucky indie rock and even hardcore, it should make for interesting listening.
With honest lyrics and mature pop sensibilities, the Scott siblings bring a warming, intriguing approach to the indie rock genre.
Audrey and Cameron Scott caught up with Already Heard and put themselves forward to take part in our “If I…” series. They told us which legendary arena they would like to play, which fellow Texan group they wish they could share a stage with, their impressive fantasy festival lineup and more.
