Inherit The Stars – Ground Zero

Ooh, anyone fancy a bit of apocalyptic rock on a Sunday evening? If you do, you’re in luck. Inherit The Stars‘ new video ‘Ground Zero’ is an energy-packed screamer of a post-hardcore tune. Have a look, you know you want to..

We Are The Ocean New Video ‘Chin Up’

Well I do love a stripped down video, and this is a pretty good one at that. We Are The Ocean‘s new single ‘Chin Up’ is a lovely acousticy number, with a low-key video to go with. If you’ve ever wanted to watch a band throwing balloons at each other, then this is definitely your cup of tea..

Kids In Glass Houses – Peace

I actually saw Welsh pop-punkers Kids In Glass Houses years and years ago, back when they were supporting Hundred Reasons at the Wedgewood Rooms in Portsmouth. They were good then, but the years have clearly been kind to them, because they’ve just released the video to this cracking tune.

‘Peace’ is a catchy bit of pop-rock with the band’s trademark energy and a bit of angst thrown in for good measure. Have a listen!

New Video From HIM – Into The Night

Well it seems one of my favourite scandi-bands (that’s a phrase now..) have a new single out! Finnish ‘love-metallers’ HIM have released their video for ‘Into The Night’. Its a nice heavy one for change, seeing as their more recent work has been a little too pop-ish.. Oh, and its got an eerie video too. What more could you want?

Check it out!

New Music Monday: Empress – ‘Blurred Perception’

I was recommended to listen to prog four piece Empress based on my love of Hell Is For Heroes (favourite band, in case you’re asking..). The band’s new single ‘Blurred Perception’, which is out now, is a little heavier that the London alt-rockers, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t good (just expect a little more screaming!).

One Man Mosh Pits: Hawk Eyes


So last night I saw the incredible Hawk Eyes at The Black Heart in Camden. It’s got to be one of my favourite pub venues, with an upstairs area that always fills up to give you the feeling of a really packed out gig.
To make it even better, last night we were in prime position to watch the one man moshpit unfold in front of the stage. There’s something very brave about being the only person to jump around in a crowd, but it was as fascinating to watch the solo guy as it was to watch the energetic performance from the Leeds foursome.
If you haven’t checked out Hawk Eyes before, they’re an experimental (don’t let that put you off..) metal band, who play fast and heavy. I highly suggest you go check them out.
Have a great weekend guys,

New Music Er, Wednesday: Catfish and the Bottlemen

Well if you (unlike me) were lucky enough to go to Reading or Leeds a couple of weeks ago, you might’ve already heard of these guys.. Indie rocksters Catfish and the Bottlemen made an appearance on the BBC Introducing stage over that weekend, but that’s not all. The band’s new single ‘Rango’ has been Zane Lowe’s hottest record (which is never a bad thing!) and is out on September 16.

Have a listen for yourself:
