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!"

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…

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…
