How could we possibly get through the year without a Bowling For Soup tour cropping up somewhere? It may be December and dangerously close to the end of 2018, yet here we are catching BFS on a cold Monday night on the Almost Christmas tour they’ve squeezed in right before the ball drops for 2019. …

Sunflower Bean blossom on stage in Glasgow performing tracks from their coming of age album ‘Twentytwo in Blue’. “Alright, enough of this silence” shouts vocalist and bassist Julia Cumming to the hushed crowd as Sunflower Bean take to the stage at Glasgow’s recently reopened Art School venue to kick off another night of their extensive …

The nights are getting darker and the leaves are tumbling from the trees so it must mean it’s time for the annual fall tour season. Each year The Amity Affliction ditch the Australian summer and dig out their winter coats as they spend time in Europe and the UK towards the end of the year. …

We’ve had something of a journey, me and Gregory, not that he’s any the wiser to it of course. I mused over it as his rich baritone poured over me in Sheffield City Hall, pinned by the very force of it to my seat. This is not the jazz-lite singer I had assumed on first …

Getting to the top wasn’t easy for Fall Out Boy, going on hiatus in 2009 was probably the best thing they could’ve done as a band. Each member got to discover who they were individually, after growing up within the public eye as one unit. They returned to the scene again in 2013 full of …

The thing is with inventive bands and music, is it possible to replicate what goes on over months in the studio into a couple of hours live. Now doesn’t necessarily have to be the case all the time, but with the likes of Field Music and Mary Epworth, who teamed up to tour as two …
