With Spring fast approaching and festival season starting soon, March sees a whole load of noteworthy releases. We take a look at five of the must hear releases this month.
Having only just formed last summer, Leeds punks Brawlers have quickly made a name for themselves for their insane live show. Now the quartet have unleashed their utterly brilliant debut EP 'I Am A Worthless Piece of Shit', an infectious collection of fun punk rock numbers. We talked to vocalist Harry George Johns to find out why the longtime friends formed
Brawlers and what 'I Am Worthless...' is all about.
After delivering one of the early contenders for album of the year, we catch up Modern Baseball to discuss ‘You’re Gonna Miss It All’, their forthcoming debut UK tour and miming
at the World Series.
In the second part of our "Studio Report" feature with Colt 45, the Cumbria punks finish their debut LP producer Romesh Dodangoda by recording vocals and more guitars. Take a look.
In the first of our new fortnightly feature where we highlight some of the most promising
bands in the pop-punk world, we talk to New York's Firestarter.
In the latest instalment of our "Tour Tales" feature, we join Wakefield quartet Morain on their recent tour supporting Durham four-piece Alexander.
With lead vocalist Matt Pryor having recently completed a solo UK tour, we highlight two albums from The Get Up Kids for the latest edition of "Versus". Already Heard writer Tom
Knott explains why 'Something To Write Home About' is "pure gold". Whilst Senior Editor
Sean Reid shows us why 'Guilt Show' shouldn't be dismissed.
This week’s edition of Something For The Weekend sees our good friend Rob Flynn taking over and recommending three great, promising bands. Besides fronting rising Irish Indie Punks The Winter Passing, Rob is also involved with Dublin-based DIY label Guys With Beards Records alongside Ian Kelly (Starters)and Seán Reid (Time Spent).
Formed earlier this year, GWB Records has unleashed a handful of releases, produced a zine and held a number of local shows.
If your label or band would like to become a guest writer for Something For The Weekend contact Sean Reid to find out more information.
The reason I picked these bands is because I like the ethics they use for being in a band. I obviously enjoy their music the most, but I like how hard working all three of these bands are. More people need to get behind them because they deserve all the success they get.
The Speed of Film
For Fans Of: Turnover, The Get Up Kids, Run For Cover Records, and DIY Punk.
It was Iano (Starters/Guys with Beards Records) that showed me this band. We listened to their record 'Chasing Comprehension' in the practice space Time Spent rehearse in straight through one evening and I was instantly hooked.I pretty much listen to that record every few days, it’s great. Some of the members of TSOF used to be in the band Bearings and Petition. GWB Records will be releasing some material from the band in 2013.
