Already Heard
EXCLUSIVE EP PREMIER: NOYO MATHIS - ENDURE
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.
INTERVIEW: NECK DEEP
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.
FIVES: MUST HEAR SEPTEMBER 2014 RELEASES
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.
ALREADY HEARD RECOMMENDS: HOMEBOUND
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.
INTERVIEW: LONELY THE BRAVE
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.

Album Review: Exit_International - Our Science Is Golden

“Yeah! I’m the king of the fucking world!” spits audacious vocalist Scott Lee Andrews in the toxic, ferocious ‘Juvenile Pacemaker’. Big words, but expose yourself to this phenomenal new release from Exit_International and you’re going to be more than ready to believe him.

These guys received no shortage of critical acclaim for their debut ‘Black Junk’ three years ago, but with ‘Our Science is Golden’ they’ve gone and created a raging speedball of rock insanity that’s going to blow your head off.
