Ducking Punches, Death By Shotgun and Kill the Witness rocked The Wave Maiden. The intimate venue was filled with passionate fans and those who got drawn in by the music from downstairs alike. All of these people had something in common – by the end of the night we all loved the three bands that played. The night put together by Nerd Rage Bookings, gave us a range of the very best punk has to offer; from pop-punk to indie-punk all these bands gave us music that meant something
Another year of university finished with, my upload hiatus is ending and summer has finally arrived, so we’re celebrating here at True Timbre. I’m giving away a digital copy of one of my favourite albums at the moment; ‘The Peace and The Panic’ by Neck Deep. Find out how to enter below:
Belgian four-piece Rebel’s End mix the classic rock-sound of AC/DC with hard rock, punk and metal. This energetic band released their debut album two years ago and are currently working on their sophomore. They took the time to talk to me about where the name came from, their dream tour and the most difficult song to perform.
French metalcore group Novelists recently announced that they’ll be supporting Eskimo Callboy throughout Europe during March and April.

‘Not Over’ is the second single from upcoming album ‘Black Sails’, due to be released March 2018. This alternative post-metal band are proving their versatility through the absence of clean vocals in this track, it’s provided Weesp fans with an excited and unexpected change in sound.
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.
Old Note’s sophomore album, ‘With A Heavy Heart’, is set for release February 16th (Friday) through Old Press Records. The follow up to their debut, ‘former self’, is a healthy evolution. Unlike their debut, this record deals with much darker themes, including suicide, loss, abusive relationships and an overall unease with life. These troubling and evocative lyrics are paired with hypnotic guitars, heavy-hitting percussions and clean vocals that break into screams with palpable intensity.
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.
Since first hearing Abbey Glover on YouTube I fell in love with both her amazing covers and fabulous original songs. Her 135,000 subscribers obviously feel the same way if all the likes and comments are anything to go by. There’s something on her channel for everybody and it’s definitely worth scrolling through for hours.
