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.
Live Review: Goodtime Boys, Oathbreaker, Iced Out and The Pact – V Revolution, Manchester - 27/10/2012
The few people that walk past vegan food/record store V Revolution are either baffled or intrigued by the noise that’s blaring out. It’s loud and heavy so it could only mean one thing, the owners have expanded from doing free acoustic sessions and have moved to a full all rounded amped up mini show featuring four of the best hardcore bands around, two of which are using this as a warm up of sorts for when they play with mathcore mob Rolo Tomassi later in the evening.
First up are newly formed Sheffield hardcore band The Pact, who feature members of Grazes and give an eye opening tight and fast set. Their craft is akin to early American Nightmare, not just in tone and style but also by the fact they have the potential to grab your throat and entice you to rip your vocal chords. What’s really intriguing is the odd manner of their frontman, who poses like a psychotic killer who you wouldn’t want to be left in a room with; there really aren’t enough weird frontmen in hardcore these days so this is refreshing. (3.5/5)
Despite technical difficulties, Durham’s Iced Out plough through all of their energy with their visceral brand of metallic hardcore. Menacing and pissed off, they have plenty of boot-crushing enthusiasm to destroy a lot of objects in the room; of course this can’t be done in a literal sense but their vicious vigour manages to sink in with ease. (3/5)
Oathbreaker from Belgium sound crystal clear with their harsh noise; utilising sharp jagged metallic riffs and eerie frightening tones they really feel like a much needed kick in the face. Vocalist Caro Tanghe provides some of the most terrifying screams imaginable under the mask of her hair as if she’s being possessed by a demon that cannot be exorcised. This should be the soundtrack to pure evil; terrific stuff! (4/5)
Welsh screamo quintet Goodtime Boys deliver a staggering performance of which is both graceful and frustration fuelled to the touch. The numerous melodies dance with the despair tinged vocals of Alexander Pennie who embodies the stamina of a troubled poet, releasing the demons that torture his mind. Nothing but sheer relentlessness, honesty and grandeur embody this magnificent set, no wonder American hardcore label Bridge 9 signed them, they have a fantastic career ahead of them, no questions asked. (4/5)
