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.
Futures have announced they are to split up and will be playing a farewell show at The Garage, London on 12th December.
The band posted the following message:
"Futures 2009 - 2012
To our fans & friends, the time has come for us to make the incredibly hard decision to bring Futures to an end.
We’ve been playing music together for over 3 years now and have had some amazing experiences that we never thought could happen to us as people and musicians, working with and meeting some great people who have made us the band we are today. We remain great friends and nothing will change that.
There are no words strong enough to say thank you to all the incredible fans that we have made and met along the way. Your belief and support has kept our band alive and taken us to places which looking back on, wouldn’t have been possible without the thousands of you that come and watch us on tour and buy our music. It’s still one of the best feelings to have every morning, waking up and knowing that, today, someone will be listening to songs we’ve written.
That brings us to the plain truth that this may well be the end of Futures but not for us as musicians and songwriters. We’re all pursuing new paths, and we’re hoping some will cross when the time is right.
We will be playing a farewell show on the 12th December at London’s Garage, celebrating the time we’ve had as a band, and hopefully with you good people joining us. It will be our last chance to play the songs we’ve written over the years and your last chance to see them live.
Thank you for being as much a part of Futures as we have been, for a band is not a band without its fans.”
