Already Heard
This week Canterbury emo-rock four piece Moose Blood release their debut full-length.
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.
The new EP from Manchester's Hora Douse, 'Crash' is streaming right here on Already Heard. Give it a listen and relive those older days when post hardcore could be a little bit twangly.
Last month we were spoilt for choice when it came to picking our must hear releases for September, and October is no different. Find out what the Already Heard team picked out as their five essential releases for October.
On Monday November 3rd, Midland hardcore punk band We Fight Like Kids release their
debut EP, 'Superficial Behaviour'. However we're premiering their new video for 'Falconer' right here on Already Heard.
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.
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.

Album Review: TRC - Nation

Given that TRC this year celebrated their tenth anniversary of life as a band, it seems a little odd to think that new album ‘Nation’ is only their second full-length effort so far. 2011’s ‘Bright Lights’ is generally considered the debut release of the band in their current form, and if album number one was the band’s gateway to the frontline of UK hardcore, then September’s follow-up is the band justifying their place amongst the elite.

There isn’t much waiting around for TRC to get all cylinders firing, and just five seconds into opening track ‘Finger Fuck You’ is the band’s first of many bursts of intensity across one of 2013’s most incendiary records. In essence, it’s the same old TRC from the start doing exactly what they do best, deliciously self-aware hardcore that you can’t just shrug off without a good flail-along. The band attack from both ends of their musical spectrum early on, with one of the album’s most pumped up sections giving way to TRC at their most withdrawn, pulled harshly back from the throat-wrenching frenzy and transformed into something almost docile in comparison. It’s an emotional sidebar to a blistering opener, which gives way into the restored fury of ’10,000 Hours’. A little early to be calling on a second wind, perhaps, but it’s one that carries the band through ‘Motivator’ and into their definitive single so far, ‘#TeamUK’. Describing the explosion of national pride all prettied up with accompanying hashtag as the band’s flagship effort to date might not be the most well-received statement in the world, but there’s no denying what song has garnered the biggest reception from the band’s existing repertoire. Instrumentally massive, perhaps a little lyrically cheesy, perhaps even out of date with its selection of Bullet for my Valentine as the go-to band to shower praise on. It remains TRC to the core however; outspoken, piledriving hardcore that it’s so hard to get enough of. And as it continues, ‘Nation’ continues to cough up beast of a track after beast of a track showing no sign of stopping any time soon.

New TRC Video (‘10,000 Hours’)

TRC have premiered their new video for '10,000 Hours' and can be viewed by clicking read more.

Chris Robson (vocals) commented on the video:

"It was great to work with Daniel Broadley again, after the fantastic job he did on ‘We Bring War’. The tune is about the rule of success being 10,000 hours of applied effort, and was inspired by Malcolm Gladwell’s book, ‘Outliers’. No matter what the distraction, we’ve kept pushing on with TRC. 10,000 hours equates to approx. 10 years, which is quite funny because TRC released our first demo 10 years ago. What’s even funnier, was the fact we recorded the band performance scene in the studio where we recorded that very first demo. Everything came full circle. It’s my favourite track off ‘Nation’."

TRC's new album, 'Nation' is available now on Siege Of Amida Records/Century Media.
