This week Lansdale, Pennsylvania’s The Wonder Years released their fourth album - ‘The Greatest Generation,’ a record that sees the pop punk quintet reach their creative peak in a number of ways. With a wealth of material in their discography, Already Heard's Sean Reid and Tom Knott took on the tricky task of picking out the five best songs from The Wonder Years. Find out what we picked and let us know if you agree or disagree?
Following the release of their superb 'Signals' album, Mallory Knox have certainly become ones to watch in recent months. We caught up with the band to discuss joining Search & Destroy Records, how vital the festival season and touring are, what it feels like to be a part
of the expanding British rock scene and much more.
Over The Ocean have crafted a compelling, brooding record with their latest effort ‘Be Given To The Soil.’ With intense specific precision and delicate accuracy that echoes the likes of Explosions In The Sky and Sigur Ros. Jesse Hill from the band to discusses how the
album came together, the importance of precision, being compared to post-rock pioneers and more.
After a top ten UK album and an outstanding UK tour with festival dates on both sides of the Atlantic to follow, Bring Me The Horizon are having a fantastic 2013 and are now featured in the latest edition of "Versus." It's ‘There is a Hell, Believe Me I’ve Seen It. There is a Heaven, Let’s Keep it a Secret’ vs the bands latest release, 'Sempiternal.'
We catch up with Newcastle Indie Rock quartet Alexander to find out more about their debut album 'Say Hello' for a “Already Heard Track Guide” feature.
Having briefly returned to the UK for the Hit The Deck Festival before starting a European
tour, we caught up with vocalist/bassist Ned Russin to discuss the bands progression in sound, differences between UK and US festivals, their recent split with Touché Amoré,
having friends on tour and more.
Ahead of the appearence at several UK summer festivals, Sonic Boom Six have released their cover of The Streets’ ‘Let’s Push Things Forward’.
The cover will appear as the b-side on the bands forthcoming ‘Keep On Believing’ single, and a video for the track can be viewed by clicking read more.

It’s no secret we’re fans of Essex-based folk-punk singer-songwriter Burn Daylight and thankfully James is a fan of Already Heard.
So last winter we caught up with James in Camden to record this exclusive cover of The Wonder Years’ ‘Local Man Ruins Everything’.
‘Young Lions’ by Burn Daylight is available now through Bandcamp.
Once again Already Heard has joined up with our pals at Pacific Ridge Records. This time we’re streaming an exclusive track from the labels forthcoming tribute album to The Movielife.
The track we’ve been lucky enough to stream is Time Will Tell’s take of ‘Kelly Song.’
Chris from Time Will Tell explained why the South Plainfield, New Jersey band picked this particular Movielife song:
“What I can say about Kelly Song is that it’s our favorite Movielife song. We really tried to put our own twist on it, and give it a little bit of a mod rock/electronic feel while maintaining the Movielife energy that everyone loved about them. The whole song has a dark feel to it, so at the end we decided to brighten things up. With our ending it almost feels like the song kind of ends with the guy telling the girl she messed up, and that she was wrong. Except now he’s accepting that he was fooled and Kelly has to live with that.”
‘A Tribute to The Movielife’ is released on 11th December on Pacific Ridge Records.
