Don Broco played their headline show at Wembley Arena on February 9th, supported by Neck Deep and Issues. Though the arena was not quite at full capacity, those who attended more than made up for it – wild mosh-pits, crowd-surfing and screamed lyrics ended the night as a resounding success.Continue reading “DON BROCO play headline show at Wembley Arena | Review”
Brookline, an alternative rock band from upstate New York, recently released their second single from their upcoming EP called “Fade” which comes out February 22nd, 2019. The single “Sinking” was released February 1st on Spotify, iTunes and many other streaming apps and websites. This song follows right behind the first single, “Two Thirds”.
With a mixture of 90’s alternative and current alternative, it is pleasant to listen to no matter what you’re doing. It has the perfect rhythm and beat to get you tapping your foot but leaving you to be able to have it play in the background while you’re busy cleaning or doing your homework. I would highly suggest giving this song and this band a shot, they’re definitely going to be a band that I look out for when it comes to touring!
The EP “Fade” is said to be about personal issues in which includes substance abuse. “Sinking” itself makes me feel like it’s about the vocalist being someones lighthouse, being who guides the person to better things while their friend is the ship that’s sinking. They’re trying to help their friend by bringing them to the light, cleaning them up and helping them but the friend instead keeps reverting back to drugs; in which that leads the person representing the lighthouse unsure of what to do until they realise that no matter what they do, no matter how they help, the person will always revert so they feel the need to let them go. They want to help their friend out but it’s taking a toll on them and they feel that they can’t help them any longer because it’s straining their friendship and how both parties get through the day.
Check out the song below through the link provided, don’t forget to keep any eye out for their EP “Fade” coming out February 22nd! You won’t want to miss it!
Escape the Fate are known for their meaningful lyrics and videos, but their most recent release took a break with that. Their new music video for their song, “Do You Love Me” from their newest album, “I Am Human” is a video designed to make you laugh.
In the video you have four bachelors and a bachelorette on one of those dating shows you used to see on television when you were little, or most of us at least. After a few watches and re-watches I think I laughed more each time. They’re a band that never fails to either make you emotional with their songs and videos or make you laugh because they’re silly and it just flat out suits them.
The song itself is brilliant! The band continue to grow and develop their sound and it is overflowing with their individual, characteristic style. The video really adds to the style of the song and helps draw out the theme of love – perfect for a Valentine’s Day release.
If you’re feeling the love and wanna watch a funny, Valentine’s Day themed video then this one is DEFINITELY for you! Check it out below and let us know in the comments what you think of the video.
Despite having been a fan of Picturesque since first hearing ‘Just Exist’ a few years ago, ‘Back To Beautiful’ slipped under the radar for an embarrassingly long time. Picturesque blend post-hardcore, pop and rock in their impressive debut album, creating a unique sound helped by the mind-blowing vocal range of singer Kyle Hollis.
Pale People are a 3 piece rock/progressive punk band. A balding neurotic, a disabled music-school dropout, and a diabetic martial artist; this band combine vocals, piano, bass and percussion to create music with something important to say. We talked about Taco Bell, the origins of their band name and the motivation behind their music.
Tarah Who? is a three piece band that delivers raw, authentic and loud rock. The band consists of multi-instrumentalist Tarah G. Carpenter (vocals, guitar), Shaina Mikee Keiths (drums) and Matt Peltcher (Bass, B/G vocals). The LA-based trio deliver rock songs that bring together the best from all genres of rock, creating a truly enjoyable and energetic atmosphere. Tarah and Matt spoke to me about the band name, their goals and the most difficult song to play live.
Eric Gynan from Leaving Eden took the time to answer my questions. This rock band from the US have toured the USA, UK & Canada, sharing the stage with hundreds of the biggest national bands in the world including; Rob Zombie, 5 Finger DeathPunch and Marylyn Manson. We talked about the origins of the band name, the key parts of a song and pre-show rituals.
I’ve been following this band closely since the release of their first single for this impressive album. This album has been on repeat since its release a few weeks ago. With this album, Imminence present a mature band, refining their rock sound and combining it with electronic sounds and folk undertones. ‘This Is Goodbye’ is my favourite album of this year so far, if you haven’t heard it then you’re missing out.
