Tiny Moving Parts – The Dome, London – LIVE REVIEW

Emo is an ever evolving thing and often taken to all kinds of places by all kinds of bands. Today’s leading emo-innovators are more subtle in their sullenness, leaning away from punk and further towards indie, and they’re all being led by the likes of Tiny Moving Parts, who took to the stage at London’s The Dome this month.   Each date of this UK tour has featured a different opening act and tonight the task was bestowed upon Middle[…]

Blessthefall, Escape The Fate & Thirty Seconds To Mars – RAPID RECORD REVIEW

blessthefall – Hard Feelings: For fans of: Bring Me The Horizon, Waterparks Listen to: Sleepless in Phoenix, Welcome Home Hard Feelings is already a strong contender for Album of the Year. blessthefall’s sixth full-length shows the band trying new things, shamelessly weaving dubstep and dance rhythms amongst their famous breakdowns.

All Time Low – Genting Arena, Birmingham – LIVE REVIEW

The UKs dark stars, Creeper, kicked off the night. They’re style is infinitely different from that of All Time Low but their fans share an infectious enthusiasm.

Turbowolf – Scala, London – LIVE REVIEW

Turbowolf are undefinable and uncontrollable. Tonight they threw a party in London on the penultimate date of their UK tour.   Brighton’s Big Spring were the night’s opening band.
