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.
Bradford’s alt-rockers Talk To Angels formed in 2008 and within two years they had completed a 6-week US tour and appeared at South By Southwest. With an ever-growing fanbase, the quartet’s brand of hook-filled rock is gathering momentum with tracks like 'Hickory Dickory' proving to be bold, boisterous and energetic.
Already Heard recently sat down with the band take part in our regular “If I…” questionnaire.
If I could re-record one song it would be…
Lee: I wouldn’t want to re-record any of my favourite songs so I think I’d like to take an awful song by Katy Perry or Britney Spears and do something crazy and unexpected with it. A lot of bands that cover songs like that nowadays seem to do it for the gimmick factor and I think it’s really disappointing.
If I could re-live one tour/show it would be…
Craig: I would love to tour America again, it’s an amazing country and that was possibly the best time of my life! We were invited by CMJ to play live in New York in 2008 which was a huge honour. After that we decided to go on an extensive multi state tour. We even went back the next year to play SXSW!
If I had the chance to play one venue it would be…
Mickey: Madison Square Garden always looked pretty cool to me! Or Shepherd’s Bush Empire in London, which is a beautiful old theatre with a balcony, little boxes around the edge for small parties, and a huge stage. The acoustics are amazing in there, and there’s a great Indian Restaurant around the corner.
