A career-spanning performance from Good Charlotte at London’s Alexandra Palace

For the last date on their Generation RX European tour, Good Charlotte go big. At London’s 10,000 capacity Alexandra Palace, this is one of their biggest UK shows to date. No pressure there, eh?

Laura Jane Grace and The Devouring Mothers cut loose on Bought To Rot

It’s not until you look at Bought To Rot the way that LAURA JANE GRACE looks at Bought To Rot that it starts to make sense. It’s a mixtape, a collection of songs influenced by the people that influence her and brought together by her and her new look band, THE DEVOURING MOTHERS (Atom Willard and Marc Jacob Hudson).

The Original Virus Returns!

Formed in 1986, Virus caused a stir from day one with their punk attitude firmly embedded into their brand of thrash metal, their raucous behaviour earning them a certain amount of infamy!

Cancer Bats

Interview with Liam Cormier of Cancer Bats at Download 2018 “Dude, this is such a party!”

Cancer Bats are on fire this year. Dropping one of 2018’s best punk albums out of nowhere back in April, The Spark That Moves caught us all off guard in the best possible way. Seems these days bands do a much better job of keeping their cards closely tucked into their chest than are given credit for. The element of surprise ...

Michale Graves + So Long Until The Séance | Fuel, Cardiff

For the second time in a week, ex-Misfits frontman Michale Graves decided to play Cardiff’s legendary Fuel Rock Bar. The highly anticipated punk legend certainly made an impression after selling out four nights previously, but returns to an oversold crowd of 30 people or so. Though not the biggest of venues, this difference turns Fuel into a condensed powder keg ...
