Cove – Cellar, Oxford – LIVE REVIEW

Two years of obstinate hard work finally amounted to the release of Cove’s Sophomore record, A Conscious Motion, earlier this year. Armed with their new release the Kent hardcore-outfit embarked on their very first UK headline tour to show everyone just what they’re made of. First up at Oxford’s The Cellar, Manchester’s Parting Gift – who might just be the world’s most aesthetically loyal band.

Of Mice & Men – O2 Academy, Bristol – LIVE REVIEW

For years Of Mice & Men have fought a tough battle just to write and play music. Now armed with a new album and the future theirs for their taking, they took off on a UK tour stopping at Bristol’s O2 Academy.

Their apparent laddish tendencies have been counteracted only by a detectable aloofness. God only knows where all that’s gone. The night was kicked off by Perth’s The Faim one of the newest and most promising names on the touring circuit. Garnering early support from King Pete Wentz, the four piece have embarked on this,[…]

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[…]
