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:

We Are Harlot – Dancing On Nails

The term ‘supergroup’ has been coined too frequently recently, from bands that are often quite significantly less than super. Luckily We Are Harlot, a combination of former Asking Alexandria singer Danny Warsnop, plus members of Silvertide, Sebastian Bach and Revolution Rennaissance, more than qualifies, create a hard-rock sound that more than meets the qualifications.
The four-piece released their debut self-titled album earlier this year and will be making an appearance at Download festival this summer.

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..

A Higher Demise – All These Reasons

Let’s face it, British bands don’t get enough recognition, even on their own turf. Battling it out with rock giants coming over the Atlantic is a pretty tough thing to face.
