Twenty One Pilots played their comeback show at O2 Brixton, London. The hiatus did the boys good, with both Tyler and Josh looking healthy and happy and giving a brilliant performance. The show introduced fans to the new era, combining the best of their old live show with new and exciting pieces (fire, cars and new songs to name a few). ‘A Complete Diversion’ has got fans all over the world excited for the new album ‘Trench’ and the World Tour that comes alongside it.
Vinyl Theatre have returned with their album ‘Star Cruiser’, their first release since parting ways with label Fueled By Ramen. This album is a beautifully curated collection of songs from the heart. From the first track to the last, you are hooked by their individual sound and raw honesty. This album marks a change in the band that can’t quite be explained, other than to say that I believe their best days are before them.
Vinyl Theatre are set to release their latest album, ‘Starcruiser’, on August 31st. The album is the band’s third release and sees them exploring and evolving their sound. Their keyboardist, Chris Senner, took the time to answer some questions prior to its release.
Fashion Week’s ‘Dark of the Cinema’ will have you desperate to hear more. The three-piece band join the ever-growing list of awesome musical talent from Columbus, Ohio. With a sound similar to upcoming artists, I Don’t Know How But They Found Me and Vesperteen, it would not surprise me for this band to follow in their success. Listen to the track for the first time here exclusively before it’s available everywhere tomorrow!
As twenty one pilots break they’re hiatus with the release of two brilliant songs, I break mine with a review. The band released ‘Jumpsuit’, ‘Nico and the Niners’ alongside an announcement of a world tour AND their next studio album ‘Trenches’.

I’ve been a fan of Death By Shotgun since seeing them open for Trash Boat in Southampton last year and was super excited to catch them again in Southampton for another show and an interview. This four-piece band melds pop, punk and rock together to create catchy melodies with incredibly relatable lyrics. We talked about favourite desserts, where the band name came from and which song is hardest to play live.
This live review is slightly different to the others featured on this site; mainly as we missed many of the bands due to coach times. This gig, headlined by Faux, at The Joiners in Southampton certainly began brilliantly. Death By Shotgun kicked off the night, followed by a band called Polary both of whom captivated the audience at one of my all-time favourite venues.
Twenty One Pilots‘ second studio album, ‘Vessel’ turns 5 years old today. It was the first album I heard from the dynamic duo and its the reason I’m so in love with them. ‘Vessel’ is an eclectic mix of alt-rock, rap and ukuleles. This album is impossible to pin down; some songs are heavy on synths, whereas some are stripped back completely. It is this versatility that makes this album so loved by people with all musical taste.
PVRIS’s largest headliner to date at O2 Academy Brixton was insane. I haven’t been to this venue since Panic! At The Disco played here, but PVRIS really owned the stage. Being sat in the Circle meant that we had an amazing view of the entire stage and the energetic crowd below. There were theatrics, a killer light show, and just fabulous performances.
Don Broco‘s headline show was one I have been looking forward to since it’s announcement. Alexandra Palace is such an amazing venue to be at, especially when it’s packed front to back and side to side. Don Broco, alongside State Champs and Counterfeit, did exactly that and had every single person in that room singing and bouncing along. The last time I was there was exactly a year ago to see Twenty One Pilots, and this show had just as much energy.
