Entitled 'I'll Keep You In Mind, From Time To Time', the record contains eleven songs that
wear their hearts on their sleeves and is wrapped in a plethora of catchy hooks. We spoke to two fourths of the band as drummer Glenn Harvey and bassist Kyle Todd discussed the
album, working with Beau Burchell, joining up with No Sleep Records, and more.

ALREADY HEARD RECOMMENDS: ALBURN
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.

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.

Album Review: Oceans Ate Alaska - Into the Deep

Birmingham’s Oceans Ate Alaska is a name that is slowly becoming familiar within the progressive metalcore scene, despite only being around a year old. Having recently signed to Density Records, this young quintet is gearing up to release a new physical version of ‘Into The Deep’, their début album containing bonus tracks. 

First track ‘The Deep (Intro)’ starts the album off with ambient piano keys and the beautiful calming sound of the sea. But this is just a ruse as the quintet then launches a full-out assault upon the opening of ‘I, The Creator’, a track full of viscous guitar bites and a blistering bass line. During tracks such as ‘To Catch A Flame’ and ‘Taming Lions’ James Harrison’s displays the impressive vocal range he possess – guttural screams give way to melodic clean cuts, giving the album more depth rather than mindless, raging screams.
