The Dead XIII

The Dead XIII release a solid collection of tunes with a touch of the dark stuff

New Years Day – Diary Of A Creep EP

Paramore’s Tour 3 – All Killer, Too Much Filler?

Now, after about twelve years of being a fan of Paramore, just the very thought of seeing Hayley Williams and the gang live for the first time was enough to send shivers down my spine and throw uncontrollable feelings of excitement through my stomach.
