Pop Punk Quartet SHADED Reveal New Single And Announce Forthcoming EP

SHADED Release New Single 'Better With You' And Reveal New EP Details

Surrey born pop punk quartet SHADED revealed their new single 'Better With You' earlier this week. The single is taken from the bands forthcoming EP release 'The Better Man In Me', due for release on the 1st September 2017.

The song title and it’s lyrics both revolve around and portray the idea of missing a relationship, whether it be intimate or a friendship, and the feeling of regret that comes with that. You can listen to it now here below..


SHADED are something slightly different to your run of the mill pop punk. Think of the guitar riffs and vocal melodies of a State Champs track, throw in some WSTR style drums and the pop vibes of a 5 Seconds Of Summer single, and you've got yourself the new SHADED EP in a nutshell.

"If, somehow, even just a few people can relate to and connect with our music, we’ll be over the moon." explains vocalist Matt East. "If you like emotive pop punk with catchy melodies and hooks, supported by hard-hitting riffs and big chorus’, you’ll probably find us in your little sister’s playlist."

23rd - The Black Heart, London - Supporting The Decoy
12th - Burned-Out Festival, The Anvil, Bournemouth

'The Better Man In Me' track listing:
1) Better With You
2) Here’s To Starting Again
3) Tendencies (The Times I Caved) [Feat. Miles Kent]
4) Too Far Distant
5) Bitter Cold
6) Deal My Hand

INTERVIEW: Cellar Darling (Switzerland)

INTERVIEW: Cellar Darling (Switzerland)

Cellar Darling is comprised of Anna Murphy, Ivo Henzi, and Merlin Sutter who recently formed following the spilt from previous well-known folk metal band, Eluveitie. The trio have been hard at work since, creating their anticipated debut album 'This Is The Sound' which was released June 30th via Nuclear Blast Records and have impressed fans and press alike with their fresh and unique sound which has been dubbed as "the new wave of folk rock“. This is an exciting and busy time for the band, so I caught up with them to find out about their origins, their new album, touring and what is in store for the band amongst other things..

Can you tell us about the formation of Cellar Darling following leaving your previous band Eluveitie and how the band came to be?
Merlin: What I remember most clearly is how quick it went. As you might know, the whole thing with Eluveitie came very unexpected for us - we were informed of a decision by the remain…

REVIEW: Bobaflex - Eloquent Demons

Hard Rockers Bobaflex from West Virginian are back to wreak havoc with their eighth album ‘Eloquent Demons’ which is the follow to 2015’s ‘Anything That Moves’, this sees not only their first release through Thermal Entertainment but their first actual label release in a while after the band decided to go independent. They are a very hardworking and tireless band, having extensively toured, and even setting records for this, they certainly don’t do anything by half measures.
The opening intro and title track sounds very appropriately evil, with a creepy intro speech to set the scene whilst we wait for the demons to be fully unleashed…
First proper track ‘I Am Nightmare’ immediately sees heavy dark guitars and melodic group singing, which give it a classic feel with a gritty edge and is possesses a hell of a powerful chorus, not to mention a killer solo – this will be hard to forget.
Keeping the momentum going is ‘Long Time Coming’ which is equally as hard-hitting, with groove ridden and…

Interview with Ginger Wildheart & Scott Lee Andrews of Mutation 

Mutation are an extreme metal act from the UK formed in 2013 by well-known vocalist/guitarist Ginger Wildheart, the man behind the rock group The Wildhearts and the frontman of Exit International, Scott Lee Andrews. The trio is completed by drummer known as Denzel (Dean Pearson) who has been involved in many projects with Ginger and plays in Young Legionnaire. I caught up with Ginger and Scott to discuss the beginnings of Mutation, the new album '‘Mutation III: Dark Black’, touring, the future, mental health and much more in this interesting and honest interview.

As a musician who has played in many bands, most notably The Wildhearts and formed many projects, how did you come to form Mutation and why when you did?

Ginger: I did it mainly because I wanted to make the music that was in my head, and it didn’t look like anyone else wanted to do it.

At the time I was playing and writing with Michael Monroe, and while I l…
