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.
Escape The Fate have cancelled this months UK tour. The band have stated the reason is that vocalist Craig Mabbitt’s girlfriend is due to give birth soon.
The band posted the following message:
The members of ESCAPE THE FATE regret that they will be unable to carry out their touring plans for Europe, including the European run of The Vans Warped Tour and dates with Chiodos. Vocalist Craig Mabbitt’s longtime girlfriend was due to have their second child prior to the band’s European run. She is now overdue and Mabbitt can not travel, as he needs to be home, by her side for the birth. The band sends their sincerest apologies to The Warped Tour, Chiodos and especially their European fan contingent and hopes to get to Europe in 2014 to the cities they are missing.
However Warped Tour founder Kevin Lyman has accused the band of lying. In a tweet, Lyman stated:
"@escapethefate pulling out of the Europe shows has nothing to do with having a baby, tell the truth it will set U free. Shame on u 4 lying."
Chiodos and The Color Morale will still play the 'Road to Warped UK' tour next week.
