On Monday November 3rd, Midland hardcore punk band We Fight Like Kids release their
debut EP, 'Superficial Behaviour'. However we're premiering their new video for 'Falconer'
right here on Already Heard.
For Scottish quartet Alburn, their latest EP ('Mouthful of Glass') has been a longtime coming. Having undergone a slight line-up since their formation in 2007, 'Mouthful of Glass'
showcases a significant amount of growth and maturity. We spoke to Pete Duthie to ask him about the bands background, that inevitable Brand New comparison, the Scottish music
scene and more.
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.
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.
Did you hear about Gnarwolves at Hevy Fest? They opened up the Main Stage on the Friday and were playing to about 8 people. Why so? Well, whoever it was at the arena entrance said that ‘no bands were playing’ and that nobody could enter, even though everyone could CLEARLY hear Gnarwolves. Cue super punk moment of everyone rushing the gates and storming in to watch one of the fastest rising bands the UK has to offer. Believe the hype.
Despite the alcohol we managed to chat to Gnarwolves about their previous musical endeavours, their involvement with Tangled Talk and watching movies with either ‘a chick or dudes’…
'CRU' by Gnarwolves is out now on Tangled Talk Records.

Gruff, fast and pop. Equally fitting of an unlikely brand of cereal, these qualitatives also conveniently fit Brighton punk outfit Gnarwolves. EP 'CRU' is a showcase of the warm-hearted aggression they wear on their sleeve through half a dozen fast-paced and rowdy tracks of pop-punk goodness. The band find their spot somewhere between the songwriting of early Against Me! combined with a style along the lines of Basement, a cocktail that surely has a bunch of people foaming at the mouth.
Opener ‘History Is Bunk’ is a short, sweet and triumphant blast as it sprints out of the starting blocks all crashing cymbals and raucous guitars before cutting with an effortless suddenness into a rousing chorus of gang vocals as they iterate again and again that ‘it’s not the same thing’. All credit should be due to the superb songwriting on display here as ‘We Want The Whip’ is another little gem that sees the band weave shouty verses with charming choruses ready to be shouted back at the band.
