Live: Rise Against, Manchester Apollo

Some may argue that punk rock in recent years has become stagnant and lost all of the edge it once had, however, bands like Rise Against still exist.

Klogr… Keystone to rock!

The number of Italian rock bands who’ve come to notice outside of their home country could be counted on the fingers of one hand.
