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

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.'
Members of the impressive roster of A Wolf at Your Door alumni (with other such breakaway successes such as Lower Than Atlantis, Deaf Havana, and this year’s hopefuls Mallory Knox) Eager Teeth have been taken under the wing of AWOYD, which seem to generate success. These guys must be excited. A refreshing take on post hardcore, a more friendly take on punk, Eager Teeth’s self titled debut album bursts with energy, not seeming to take a breath.
The perfect song to open the album, ‘Mary Rosed’ sets the precedent for the rest of the album, immediately defining their sound and displaying the talents of the band. One of the main things that stands out is just how raw these guys sound; it’s just pure rock n’ roll, balls to the wall punk rock.
Hacktivist will be a short run of UK dates next month alongside Neck Deep and Eager Teeth.

It’s the middle of the summer holidays. This is usually the time for fun and lots of partying. What better soundtrack to this than some quality pop punk to keep the momentum. All this can be found right here in the middle of Manchester in some small, freakishly warm, compact venue.
The first of tonight’s line up to keep all attendees interested is Leopards from Cheshire. Although they start off stiffly, this band eventually come into their own presenting thick alt rock guitars and atmosphere enhanced by the wonderful vocals of lead vocalist Jenna Clarke. Their use of innovative instrumentation and proggy pop formula a la Minus the Bear definitely underlines them as one’s to watch.
Consisting of former members from This City, Telegraphs and Chaos Days, Eager Teeth from Brighton are a bit of a puzzle at first but by the end of their set, it all begins to make sense. Mixing catchy melodic choruses with a hint of rock n roll swagger provides very good entertainment. As a live band they behave as a tightly wound businessman that goes sadistically unhinged from a frustrating line of work. When the new album drops I for one urge you to buy it and do some endless jamming because I will.
Mixtapes and Eager Teeth have been announced as support for Set Your Goals UK tour, which takes place in August.
