Twin Atlantic – The Academy – 10/12/2016 – LIVE REVIEW

On September 9th 2016 Twin Atlantic unleashed a ferociously rock ‘n’ roll album entitled GLA.

You Me At Six – Dingwalls – 26/11/2016 – LIVE REVIEW

You Me At Six certainly made the most of 2016 with the release of ‘Night People’ (the first single and title track of their upcoming fifth album), secret sets at Reading and Leeds Festival and heading out on the most intimate YMAS UK tour for years.
