The Script – Rain

The Script are back after two years in the studio with their single ‘Rain’ and it marks a new era for them. ‘Rain’ is definitely a step away from the sound fans initially associate with this band. Their fifth album is yet to get a release date.

Broadside – Paradise

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.

Don Broco – Pretty

Don Broco used arguably the most genius marketing scheme for their most recent single ‘Pretty’. A live-stream wedding turned out to be the release of a rather dark, yet captivating, music video. This song really encompasses the band’s sound and has me very excited for new music.

Hands Like Houses – Drift

I first discovered Hands Like Houses when they opened for Of Mice And Men Β last year, since then I’ve been a massive fan – travelling to Southampton to catch them live again just a month after seeing them for the first time. And they’ve blown me away again with their release of ‘Drift’. The single comes alongside an announcement of signing with Hopeless Records.

VAULTRY – Eulogy

After 30 seconds of the opening title track, I knew I would like this band. After hearing the heartbreaking background to this album I both loved and respected them. They have broken the mould of modern melodic alt-rock with their full-length album, Eulogy. An ode to a fallen friend, the record serves as a heartbreaking reflection on extreme loss and the grief that follows.

Man Up – Everywhere

Everywhere have announced their first 2017 release in the form of ‘Man Up’ following their successful sophomore EP ‘Fiction Act’. I’ve been excitedly waiting for new music and ‘Man Up’ did not disappoint. The brilliant new single is currently available for streaming on Soundcloud and will be officially released to all digital stores June 9.

Interview with Divided We Stand

Divided We Stand are a five piece band from Knoxville, Tennessee. Their dynamic blend of hard rock, alternative rock, metal and folk creates brilliant original music. Their goal is to compose music of the highest quality that musicians and music lovers alike can love, and to make the world a better place in the process. I spoke to the band about the most challenging song to play live, how the band started and future goals.

I Never Loved Before I Found You – Front Porch Step

Front Porch Step is back, with an album full of pain and apologies. His new album ‘I Never Loved Before I Found You’ is a definite move from the sound from his previous album; rather than his voice accompanied by a guitar we get a new, fuller sound.Β Every song on this album has a different message, all of them originating from pain, loss and hurt. I absolutely loved Aware (his previous album) because of the acoustic vibes and honest lyrics, which focused on break ups, cheating and the loss of his grandmother. It seems that Jake McElfresh has continued with this raw, honesty on this brilliant album.

Interview with Imminence

My love for Imminence’s new album is not a secret. For me, ‘This is Goodbye’ is the strongest album this year has offered so far and I’ve had it on repeat since its release. I spoke with singer Eddie Berg and guitarist Harald Barrett about their album, their change in direction and how the band got together.
