COMPLETE! Return With – ‘On The Edge’.

Complete! – Ivano Frankivsk, Ukraine. The European Punk-Rock scene is perhaps the strongest it’s been in recent history. It joins a global scene only getting stronger in the face of the far-right, auto-tune and the closing of venues but also certain powerful elderly meat-heads and despotic orange maniacs. I’ll let you wonder who I’m referring

Phaedra’s Love: The Band and Chilling ‘One’.

Phaedra’s Love – Devon, England, United Kingdom. Photography credit: Dev Place Photos – Click Here. Two-piece bands are somewhat of a phenomenon of the past few years. They come in all shorts of shapes and sonic sizes which is exactly why the new single from Phaedra’s Love and the (now) band itself is so important. The Exeter/Plymouth based

Fake News – ‘EWWWW!’ – Gold Coast Punk-Rock.

Fake News – Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia. In the interest of both saving time, doing a band justice and in the fashion of how this EP sounds, I’ll get straight to the point. Hailing from the Gold Coast and playing a Skate Punk sound healthily infected with both classic Hardcore Punk and the driven melodic

Shackleford – And The ‘Shackleford II’ EP.

Shackleford – Nuneaton, England, United Kingdom. Shackleford are a band not messing around. They play Pop-Punk in the fashion of the old-school before all else. That’s not to say that the contemporary scene isn’t producing stellar music but Shackleford are now two EPs in and have made their bed, with mid-to-fast tempo sheets and ’90s-styled

False Heads – ‘Less Is Better’ EP (21/09/18 – 05/10/18).

False Heads – London, England, United Kingdom. If you wanted to put it simply, there are two ways in which you can look at the London three-piece that are False Heads. The band’s musical weight and general Rock n’ Roll abandon and blunt nature has only intensified in recent years, seeing an Indie-laced Alternative Rock

UGLYBoNES Return With – ‘Sunshine’.

UGLYBoNES – Chicago, Illinois, USA. UGLYBoNES are a band that if you’ve spent any time on the Punk-Rock orientated side of either Facebook or bandcamp or perhaps even found yourself in Chicago and it’s suburbs over the past few years, you may well have heard of. The band have been quiet since the excellent Growing Concerns in

Capital Youth – ‘Holiday In The Sun’.

Capital Youth – Geneva, Switzerland. Geneva‘s finest Garage Punk band return via Roosevelt Records once more for ‘Holiday In The Sun’. Both the band and their parent label have been quiet on the release front in the past two years so having them back is something special. Garage Rock and it’s cantankerous cousin Garage Punk
