After receiving a five star review last month, next Monday sees the UK release of Twin Forks' self-titled debut album. However we're giving away three copies of the album. Find out how you can win one of thee copies here.
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.
Welcome to another edition of Something For The Weekend. This week we have the Indie/Emo heroes Empire! Empire! I Was A Lonely Estate, garage punks Los Broncos and the gruff punkers Bear Trade.
We’ll be making some changes to SFTW soon but don’t worry, it’ll only make it even better than it is now. Until then, feel free to dive into this weeks selections and enjoy some beautifully free music.
If you’d like to be featured on “Something For The Weekend” or have some “local heroes” to be featured, send an e-mail to Richard (Richard@AlreadyHeard.com).
Empire! Empire! (I Was A Lonely Estate)
For Fans Of: American Football, Death Cab for Cutie, and Mineral.
Whilst we tend to focus on new acts in Something For The Weekend, it’d be a shame to not talk about the excellent Empire! Empire! offering their entire discography for free for one week only! If you like jangly, experimental emo then you won’t be disappointed.
For Fans Of: Latterman, Caves, and UK Punk Rock.
Bear Trade hail from the North East of England and features members of Pure Graft, Former Cell Mates and The Mercury League to name but a few. Their brand of punk rock isn’t particularly ground breaking but if you like any of the bands previously mentioned then there’s no reason you wouldn’t enjoy this.
For Fans Of: Off With Their Heads and Motorhead.
Los Broncos are an Exeter based three piece making loud, no barrels held punky garage rock. They have a free to download demo up on Bandcamp and a four track sampler available in return for a donation at shows (which are definitely worth going to). It’s thrashy, messy and beautifully loud. I really dig it.
