Brighton Duo SONS Release New Video For Single 'Zealot' Out August 25th




Brighton Two-piece Unveil New Video For 'Zealot', Out August 25th Via DIY Label Till Deaf Do Us Party



Brighton duo SONS unveil the video for their new single ‘Zealot’, dropping on 25th August via DIY label Till Deaf Do Us Party and the single was released on Spotify on the 14th July. Huw Stephens just played the single on his BBC Radio 1 show and Alex Baker name them 'Band Of The Week' on his Kerrang! show.

The Brighton duo has been supported from the likes of 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.


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 rule book, 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, the band will play a string of UK dates including Tramlines Festival opening party in Sheffield on 20th July, Mark Beaumont Presents at The Monarch in London on 9th August and will support The Kut at The Black Heart in Camden on 13th August.

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.

Band-Maid MCM Comic Con Live Review/Feature - Fringe Festival 29/5/16

J-Rockers Band-Maid make first European performance at huge MCM Comic Con

Band-Maid, one of Japan’s up-and-coming all-girl rock acts, made their live debut to UK/Europe at MCM London Comic Con, which took place from 27-29th May 2016 at ExCel London, hosting the UK's biggest Modern Pop Culture Event.


The Tokyo quintet who formed in 2013, consisting of Miku (guitar/vocals), Saiki (vocals), Kanami (guitar), Akane (drums) and bassist Misa – have been building quite a reputation and fan-base all over with their blend of cute yet deadly rock music and stand out imagery (appropriately dressing as maids) whilst they unleash and deliver their seriously skilled and striking sounds. The concept of the maid outfit aesthetic stems from founder Miku’s experiences in the maid cafes of Akihabara – the Tokyo district known for otaku (‘geek’) culture and passion for rock music.


Through their music videos they have been reaping success and gaining well deserved attention, especially for the videos f…

REVIEW: Spreading The Disease - Insurrection

Modern metal quartet Spreading The Disease from Kent, UK formed in 2014 and then earlier this year in September 2017 they finally unleased their debut album ‘Insurrection’ which shows they are ready to infect metalheads and critics alike with their no-nonsense sounds…
Opening song ‘Find My Path’ starts with a melodic and resonant intro before fierce vocals come in with hard-hitting heavy guitars, it then goes on to feature an effective stripped back section towards the end which gives it extra depth. This is a powerful and strong start to the album.
‘Words Unspoken’ is a thumping tune with great rhythms and is very headbang worthy and incredibly catchy, keeping up the momentum is self-named track ‘Spreading The Disease’ which immediately pulls you in with catchy melodies and is all consuming with mighty riffs and a massive aggressive sound.
Latest single ‘Greed’ is frantic and driven and features some of the best guitarwork so far and again is very belligerent and is bound to get the mos…
