On first listen we fell in love Noyo Mathis and knew that 'Endure' needed to be heard. It's post hardcore meets emo meets indie meets math rock. Take a listen to the full EP right here.
Without a doubt Neck Deep are one of this years breakout bands. After kicking off the year
with the release of their debut LP, 'Wishful Thinking', the Wrexham pop-punk five piece haven’t stopped touring since. From festival appearances throughout the UK and Europe to 2 months in North America as part of the Vans Warped Tour. We caught up with vocalist Ben Barlow and bassist Fil Thorpe-Evans at the Leeds Festival. They discussed their past festival experiences, supporting Blink-182, their up and coming UK headline tour and being
“leaders” of the UK pop-punk movement.
With the festival season more or less over for another year, it’s time for a whole load of
exciting releases to see the light of day. September sees a plethora of exciting releases, so much so that the Already Heard team were spoilt for choices when it came to picking this months must hear releases. Nevertheless they've completed the tricky task and picked out their five must-hear releases for the coming month.
With their combination of refreshingly introspective lyrics, crisp riffs and bouncy choruses, Homebound tick all the right boxes when it comes to promising UK pop-punk bands. Their debut EP, 'Coming of Age' sees the young band make a confident first mark on the ladder to greater things. We spoke to the band to discuss the importance of a debut release, and the comeback of pop-punk.
Packing stadium sized rock anthems with an incredibly striking emotional punch, and graced with one of the most staggeringly unique vocal talents to have graced the UK Rock scene in a long time, Cambridge’s Lonely The Brave have become one of the single most talked about new bands to emerge in recent years. With their debut album ‘The Day’s War’ finally released this week, Already Heard caught up with lead guitarist Mark Trotter and Bassist
Andrew Bushen at last weekend’s Leeds Festival.
We've got a full review, live photos and interviews from one of the highlights of the summer - Leeds Festival.
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.”
