Combined by an admiration for early 2000’s emo bands, Brighton’s As It Is are the latest emerging pop-punk band to be making waves in the UK. Next week sees the release of the bands second EP, 'This Mind Of Mine' which sees them grow as a cohesive unit to produce four songs of honest pop-punk. Having received an overwhelming response from a
Kickstarter campaign and with vocalist Patty Walters’ dedicated YouTube following, As It Is
are a band on the rise. We caught up with Ben to find out more.

Having only just formed last summer, Leeds punks Brawlers have quickly made a name for themselves for their insane live show.

Brawlers and what 'I Am Worthless...' is all about.

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.
Having recently released their Topshelf Records debut in the form of 'Don’t Take Our Filth Away,' Portland, Oregon’s Duck. Little Brother, Duck! have a chaotic and dynamic sound that perfectly fits the Topshelf mould. Tracks like ‘Everybody Loves Screamo’ and 'If I Didn't Have My Press Badge' are rugged and sporadic in structure.
