SONS Confirmed To Play the 'Jack Rocks' This Feeling Stage at Reading Festival 2017

SONS Confirmed To Play the 'Jack Rocks' This Feeling Stage at Reading Festival 2017 & new single ‘Zealot’ is out on 25th August

Fusing face melting noise and relentless attitude, with influences spanning from Slaves, Blood Red Shoes and No Age to Death From Above 1979 and Lighting Bolt, the Brighton duo take the timeless but sometimes limited power duo dynamic and throw away the rulebook, adding an amount of sheer velocity, energy and volume to an already towering sound.

Following on highly-praised singles; the Radio X and Virgin Radio playlisted ‘Reptiles’ and ‘A Love Song?’, anticipation has been steadily building for their upcoming EP due for release in Autumn. Fresh from playing this year’s Great Escape Festival and Camden Rocks, the duo has seen growing support across key radio shows including Radio X’s John Kennedy, BBC Radio 1’s Huw Stephens and Phil Taggart, Kerrang Radio and BBC 6 Music’s Tom Robinson culminating with a live session on John Kennedy’s X-Posure.

Talking about the song, the band explains: “is about rising up and pushing for changes using your voice. Stand up to the powers that be, don’t just take it, shout at them, whatever you know is right, don't give up until you're heard.” Their anti-establishment underscores the raw nature of UK grassroots post-punk and the new wave of youth discontent that the group’s music was born from.

Comprised of brothers Lee on guitars and vocals and Nick Meldrum on drums, SONS are known for their high-octane live shows; an electrifying two-man jam of satisfying noise, combining monstrous guitars riffs drenched in distortion with explosive drums. The exact method of achieving such a full force of sound is closely guarded, but is obvious the duo to give the two-piece format their own unique slant.

Having already notched up memorable live performances including Tramlines Festival opening party in Sheffield, Mark Beaumont Presents, Camden Rocks and The Great Escape, the band will play the 'Jack Rocks' This Feeling stage at Reading Festival 2017.

Built around direct lyrics, and a DIY attitude, ‘Zealot’ is a fitting example of the new generation of UK rock bands, proving their output is as refined and relevant as it is rough and ready.

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: Mutation (with Ginger Wildheart & Scott Lee Andrews)

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…
