ALEX BAKER Announced As POP PUNK PILE UP FESTIVAL After Parties Headliner




POP PUNK PILE UP FESTIVAL are pleased to reveal the final details of this year's event with Kerrang Radio's Fresh Blood presenter Alex Baker headlining the Friday and Saturday night after parties. He joins Sunday night's after party headliner MC Lars, who was revealed earlier this month.

"It’s gonna be ACE!" states the successful DJ who has presented his show on Kerrang Radio for over ten years, winning countless awards and nominations for his work with underground and unsigned rock bands/artists. Announcing his addition to the line up live on his Fresh Blood Show last night on Kerrang Radio, Alex joins an already packed out three days at a very intimate venue for a festival.

With the full line up now announced and just a few weeks to go, festival organiser Adam Ruane is hoping for a great debut year to lay the foundations for the future. "Now that the full line up is completely sorted it looks insane on paper! To see we are bringing some of the biggest names in rock/punk and alternative music to such a small town really shows what we are capable of doing in the long run. It's been such a rollercoaster of a journey since November 2017, right up to now and the whole team are so excited to get to Selby to witness the launch of the festival and all our hard work. It's crazy to believe we have pulled this event together, but the work and determination has really got us in a strong position going forward. Hope to see you all there!"

These are charged at £14.50 per night for two adults with an additional £2.50 per extra adult per pitch.

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…
