The Kerrang! tour has been a staple in gig goers calendars for years, big names playing smaller venues accompanied by bands you’ve seen flicking through the pages of the magazine all year round. The line-up is, most of the time, so diverse that you’ll have your ears treated to new genres of music. Past line-up’s …

  This specific sold out show has had some hype behind it for a while, much like their album; Frank Carter and the Rattlesnakes’ live show is acclaimed by most in the genre as being quite the spectacle. So of course support band Basement have a lot to do to warm the crowd. With their …

Crammed onto a tiny stage in Leeds around the corner from where the MOBO awards are happening, Northlane are bringing some Australian sunshine to what is a miserable, chilly day in Yorkshire. Colourwave is a great opener for the show, front man Marcus Bridge shows his immense vocal abilities by switching from deep growls to melodic …

Justin Currie on stage at O2 ABC Glasgow on 14 October 2017

Justin Currie – accompanied by his Pallbearers – holds court in Glasgow, with a set including tracks from his beautifully crafted new album ‘This Is My Kingdom Now’ and fresh arrangements of Del Amitri favourites.

This cold Thursday in Manchester, Machine Gun Kelly (birth name Richard Baker) is bringing some Cleveland swagger to the North of England. With a stage …

Over the years Young Guns have seen their fair share of Manchester’s University building, as all of the Academy venues it houses. On this rainy Monday night though, they’re taking the stage down in the Club Academy. As a slightly more intimate room, it’s perfect for tonight’s mix of newer songs, complimented by a few …

Spontaneity can be a risk, and a risk is something that bands – aside from those belonging to the highest, top-billing, festival-headlining echelons – aren’t always willing to take. But a triptych of Scunthorpe talent threw caution to the wind and announced an impromptu, DIY pop-up gig at Café Indie, with less than a week’s …

It’s been an odd and unsettling few months to be in this country. Through it all though the thought that the likes of the Trembling Bells couldn’t come from anywhere else has come as a comforting thought. that mix of folk, psychedelia, whimsy and a bit of a fighting edge speaks of much of the …

The last time I saw Blixa Bargeld, the lead singer of Einstürzende Neubauten (literal translation “Falling New Buildings), he was moonlighting with Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds. He was a gaunt, terrifying presence on stage with a piercing, eviscerating stare and dressed in a rubber butcher’s apron and battering, not playing, guitar. Here in …
