It’s no doubt it has been an incredible summer of music, and it’s not over yet as the legendary Reading and Leeds Festival takes place this weekend. With dozens of acts playing across 8 stages over 3 days, there is lot to choose from. As always the Already Heard team has got together to pick out what we think are the 20 must-see acts at Reading and Leeds 2014.
Bloody Knees are the latest band to emerge from the UK lo-fi punk scene. On August 25th the quartet release their new EP, 'Stitches' which promises to be a catchy and raw in equal measures. We spoke to vocalist Bradley Griffiths to discuss the new EP, joining Dog Knights Productions, being part of the UK emo and lo-fi resurgence and more.
If metalcore is your thing then say hello to From Her Eyes. The Welsh quartet are exclusively streaming their debut EP 'Demons' right here on Already Heard.
Did you hear about Gnarwolves at Hevy Fest? They opened up the Main Stage on the Friday and were playing to about 8 people. Why so? Well, whoever it was at the arena entrance said that ‘no bands were playing’ and that nobody could enter, even though everyone could CLEARLY hear Gnarwolves. Cue super punk moment of everyone rushing the gates and storming in to watch one of the fastest rising bands the UK has to offer. Believe the hype.
Despite the alcohol we managed to chat to Gnarwolves about their previous musical endeavours, their involvement with Tangled Talk and watching movies with either ‘a chick or dudes’…
'CRU' by Gnarwolves is out now on Tangled Talk Records.
