Neck Deep released their new song, “In Bloom”, yesterday and it was met with mixed reviews from fans. Although there have been a lot of people that don’t like this song, Neck Deep have told their fans that they need to hear the whole album before they make any final decisions.
Broadside’s new album ‘Paradise’ pushes the boundaries of genre. When I spoke to the band earlier this year, they suggested that this album would show Broadside in a new light and they weren’t wrong. The album features songs that wouldn’t have been out of place on ‘Old Bones’ and other songs that could easily be on mainstream radio. ‘Paradise’ has something for everyone, if you haven’t heard Broadside yet then I recommend you change that.
Neck Deep have recently released ‘Where Do We Go When We Go’ from their upcoming album ‘The Peace and The Panic’. Whilst this song definitely doesn’t stray completely from the sound we expect from Neck Deep, it does highlight their talent in other ways.
I’ve been a fan of Broadside since hearing vocalist Ollie Baxxter feature on a League MVP track. They fully capture everything I love about pop-punk; they are brimming with energy and their songs offer much more than what is on the surface. I met up with Ollie and Dorian at a show in Southampton, we talked about Warped Tour, poetry and R2-D2 headphones.
This show was an odd one; for once it was the opening acts I was there to see rather than With Confidence. Broadside are a band I’ve been following for a while and was overjoyed to get the chance to see this incredible pop-punk band live. Milestones are a band who I had discovered quite recently and loved. However, as with most shows, each band was incredible in their own right and a true pleasure to watch. The show brought in a range of pop-punk sounds, even venturing into other genre’s with Safe To Say. Joiners was a brilliant venue for all these bands, allowing an intimacy which really played into their hands when winning over the crowd.
Fans have been waiting for new music from rock band ‘Hey Violet’ for a year. Since the release of their debut EP ‘I Can Feel It’ the band have opened for 5SOS on their last two tours and have built a loyal fan base. ‘Brand New Moves’ is a welcome taste of where their music is going, it’s a move from the anthemic pop-songs into rock songs that have you shouting as loud as you can.
All Time Low announce the release of a second live DVD. Straight To DVD II: Past, Present, And Future Hearts will be released August 26th and is available for pre-order now. Take a look at the teaser video below.
Set It Off have dropped a smashing video for their latest single ‘Uncontainable’. The orchestral pop rock group released their sophomore album ‘Duality’ back in 2014 and new music has been highly anticipated, their signature cinematic sound is back and stronger than ever. I’m already in love with this song.
‘Cluster’ is the first EP from pop-punk band Waterparks to be released via a record label. I heard about them through Mikey Way, from Electric Century and formerly of My Chemical Romance, who played bass on the EP. I’m just glad I decided to check these guys from Houston out – this 5 track EP sees a return to the ‘classic’ pop-punk sound.
I’ve been waiting for this album for what feels like forever, but it is finally here and it does not disappoint. For Panic! fans this album has been highly anticipated, with the release of high calibre singles like ‘Halleljuah‘, ‘Victorious‘ and ‘Don’t Threaten me With a Good Time‘(reviewed previously on the site) only feeding this excitement. As with all Panic! albums it’s an evolution from ‘Too Rare to Live, Too Weird to Die’, personally I think ‘Death Of A Bachelor’ is one of their strongest albums yet.
