Excitement looms over Bristol this evening. Mallory Knox received their second top 20 album last week, and tonight, they’re debuting some of their hotly discussed tracks for the first time on date number one of the Wired tour. To begin the evening, they’ve brought along Fatherson, a Scottish three-piece with an enveloping quaint folk-rock sound. Their sound is crisp, with a faultless performance that’s been perfected to a “T” and though filled with powerful melodies that are nicely boosted by singer, Ross Leighton’s voice. Following on, Lonely The Brave, deliver a particularly varied performance, keeping the audience on their...Read More

Lower Than Atlantis’ UK headline tour is a big deal. A big deal to more than just the four-piece themselves, but to fans, to aspiring British musicians and to the rock music scene. They’re a tale of rags to riches and a prime example of how perseverance, determination, talent and creativity really does pay off. For tonight’s attendees in Cardiff’s Great Hall, it’s their chance to see what the past ten years as a band has amounted to. Arriving from down under, Hands Like Houses are the perfect warm up act to raise spirits. Their melodically led songs draw...Read More
It’s been almost four years since Billy Talent were last in the Welsh capital. It’s a narrowly sold out show. There’s no doubt that people still care about them, despite this absence. But this means the pressure is on to maintain and impress the fanbase that still exists, especially with a new album under their belts. Billy Talent have brought Say Yes along with them to open. Their sound isn’t particularly coherent, but being formed by past members of Alexisonfire, Jersey and Saint Alvia, this comes as no surprise. They’re pleasant enough, but lacking that special something. No clear...Read More
Live: Moose Blood @ Y Plas, Cardiff On tonight’s line up are four young, hotly discussed and justifiably hyped bands ready to wave the flag for the new generation of emo, each ready to provide something unique. Although Cardiff was the last show to sell out, from the offset, Moose Blood’s crowd for the evening emit an excitement and anticipation that’s shared among every single member of the audience; each ready to prove their worth to the fanbase, religiously screaming their heart’s out to the soundtrack of the best night of their lives. Luca Brasi start the show with...Read More
2016 brings the tenth Butserfest to Queen Elizabeth Country Park, Horndean. It is an event that has been cherished as an alcohol-free home for teenage fans of pop punk since 2007. That said, some bands might be a bit too profanity-laden to be ‘for all the family’. We asked writer Nick Pollard and photographer Natalie Lam to get toned up for the weekend and take a trek up and around Butser Hill. Pop rock five-piece, The Gospel Youth (Natalie Lam) Metalheads might also find it sacrilegious for a festival crowd to be singing Bangarang by Skrillex while waiting for a band fronted by a YouTube...Read More
PVRIS (PARIS) live at the Great Hall, Cardiff University It would be completely incorrect to say that PVRIS are an overnight sensation. Going from playing to a mere 200 people to a sold out 2000 capacity venue within a year seems like a fluke but this certainly isn’t the case for PVRIS. Tonight, the Boston three-piece are ready to prove to the people of Cardiff what a combination of hard work, talent and endless touring can do to a pleasantly humble group of Millennials. Introducing the evening are Alvarez Kings. They share similarities to PVRIS, which classes them as...Read More
When people think about the pioneers and major influencers of pop punk, they think Blink 182, New Found Glory, Good Charlotte and rightly so. But there is another inclusion and more often than not the Canadian 5 piece Simple Plan are missed off that list. They have been around for fifteen years and have released their fifth and most recent album this year. Bristol welcomes opening band The Bottom Line with open arms. Though British, their nationality is entirely disguised through American-esque vocals and typical pop punk power chord progressions. Admittedly, they’re not ground-breaking but they’re pleasing many and...Read More
