Already Heard
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.

Live Review: Next Stop Atlanta, Everybody Looks Famous, Killing Nancy & Silver Story - Dry Bar, Manchester - 11/03/2013


Normally with live reviews we set the scene a little. Usually it’s dark and cold and yeah, it was dark and bloody cold. We’d just enjoyed some burritos so we were ready to face the live music with full bellies and Mexican grins.

First up were Manchester’s very own Silver Story. The four piece rock outfit did their upmost to make themselves seen and heard. A solid and well paced set of hook driven indie rock songs made the assembling crowd take notice. (3/5)

Album Review: Silver Story – Arts & Vandals

St. Helens quartet Silver Story has been around since 2008, taking influence from a multitude of genres. This has led to the release of their EP, ‘Arts & Vandals’, a four-track release that promises many great things for this young band.

Kicking off with ‘Jaded’, we’re drawn in with a fast and furious tempo; discordant riffs mix with slick, smooth vocals that soar. Alex McCabe’s sweeping vocals twang with deep emotion and passion, evident during ‘My Empire’. A melodic bassline stretches to meet indestructible drumming. And it is here that Silver Story slow down slightly, using heart wrenching lyrics of “I am broken”, twisted within riffs that roar when needed.
