Major festivals aside, summer is always a quiet time for music, so its a little hard to find something decent to bring you.. However, this week I’ve managed to find something that might be hard, but is definitely not quiet (you’ll see what I did here if you listen to it)!
City Of Thieves made their live debut at Camden Rocks Festival back in May, but judging by their music, they’ll have plenty more shows to come. The band are about to release their Incinerator EP in September, after performing at Bloodstock and Planet Rock Rockstop.
Long live rock’n’roll, eh?
You can tell its post-Download festival when the heavy releases start again. Case-in-point, metal heroes Bullet For My Valentine have released a stream of the awesome ‘Army Of Noise‘ track, taken from their new album ‘Venom‘, which is out next month. Now I might be wrong, but I’m pretty sure there’s a tour with that too..
Listen listen listen!
To be honest, I didn’t even know that Ash were still going, but after hearing their surprisingly soft new single, ‘Free’, I wish I had kept more of a track on them. It may not have the energy of their early hits (we can’t be expecting ‘Girl From Mars‘ again, can we?), but this is the sound of a band who’ve reached their prime and know exactly how to write a great song.
I seriously suggest that you check this out now:
