Sunset Sons – Medicine

It’s rare to hear such a loud, arena-like sound from a band who have yet to release their debut record, but Sunset Sons appear to have managed it on their new single ‘Medicine’. Good thing too, as they’ll be supporting indie-rock giants Imagine Dragons on their European arena tour later this year.

If this video is anything to go by, the Anglo-Aussie quartet will be filling up arenas of their own in no time..

Check out their tour dates with Imagine Dragons here.

Sleeping With Sirens – The Strays

It’s rare to have a song combine teenage angst with summery pop melodies, especially when there’s whistling involved, but somehow Sleeping With Sirens have managed it! The Orlando troupe must have been taking in the sunshine ahead of us in rainy old Britain when they wrote their new single ‘The Strays‘, a softly-told tale of adolescent and belonging.

Ashestoangels – The Wake

It’s been a long road for Bristol goth punks Ashestoangels, but they seem to be finally getting the recognition their hard works deserves, with solid features in Kerrang! and countless shows with the daddy of all things dark and screamy, William Control.

The band’s new single for ‘The Wake‘ showcases their impressive live shows, using solely fan created footage for the video and is taken from their new record ‘Horror Cult‘. Watch it below:

Radio On – You’re Always Right

It’s starting to feel like summer here, and I’ve been rinsing through my guilty pleasures collection. It must be the sunshine that always puts me in the mood for a good, happy tune.

Rather than risk someone catching me with an old 90s classic in my headphones though, London four-piece Radio On make radio-friendly, danceable music without a hint of potential embarrassment. Drawing influences from 70s indie-rock, their new single ‘You’re Always Right‘ should definitely be the soundtrack to your day, whether its chilling in a park, or just blocking out the world on your daily commute..

Defy All Reason – Bad Blood

If you like your rock with a lot of roll, some southern vibes and slight Welsh twist, then you’re in luck! Defy All Reason take inspiration from the likes of Black Stone Cherry and Shinedown, then bring their own burst of frantic energy to every track of their upcoming record ‘The Road Ahead‘.

Check out the video for first single, ‘Bad Blood‘ below:

The Road Ahead‘ is released May 11th.

Chunk! No, Captain Chunk! – Playing Dead

It’s rare to see a band so casually cross the channel sonically, but French pop-punks Chunk! No, Captain Chunk! have certainly managed it with their new single ‘Playing Dead’. Give it a listen and you’ll be swearing that they have come straight from the sunny climates of the USA, like their recent tourmates Yellowcard and Less Than Jake, not the rainy Parisian streets..

Crown The Empire – Bloodline

Did everyone have a good Halloween? I was out rocking my 15 year-old self’s battered goth boots and fishnets (both felt surprisingly comfy) and generally screaming the house down with some low-budget horror flicks.

Moving on, here’s a new tune that’ll rock your stripey socks off, the furiously relentless ‘Bloodline’ from Texan metalcore quartet Crown The Empire. The track is taken from the band’s second album ‘The Resistance: Rise of the Runaways‘.
