With Endpoint, Trial, 7 Seconds and By The Grace Of God as headliners, Fluff Fest's US import game seems pretty strong this year. Luckily, the appearance of Italy's finest emo band could be announced, too: Raein will finally make it to Rokycany again. Amongst the remaining lineup, some refreshing bands like Cavalcades (SCO), Red Apollo (GER) and Disembarked (SWE) can be found. And, last but not least, a few regular guests will pay their visit to Czech Republic again: Anchor (SWE), Reason To Care (GER) and No Turning Back (NL) were booked as well.
We are sad to hear about the passing away of Nick Mann who was said to be one of the UK's greatest souls and most excellent fanzine writers. Our thoughts are with his family and all our friends from overseas that are still grieving in disbelief.
Illinois-based hardcore/metal five-piece Harm's Way released a new video yesterday. Youtube is full of enraged comments already: Don't we know that riff? And yes, all they said was entirely true as "Amongst The Rust" pretty much sounds like Slipknot's "Liberate".
Apparently it's all about streams these days. After a number of bands made their latest material available on the internet, Pittsburgh-based emo band Adventures have just done so, too. "Supersonic Home", which will be released via Run For Cover on 17 February, finally allows the band to stop being overshadowed by heavy hardcore band "Code Orange", with whom they share several members.
Young and ambitious melodic hardcore bands Deceits (Herne, Germany) and I Saw Daylight (Ulm, Germany) are now premiering their forthcoming split release online: each of them contributes two brand new tracks to the record, which is already up for preorder at Beyond Hope Records, lifeisafunnything, White Russian Records and Last Novel Records.
Hamburg's local punk rock band No Weather Talks is about to leave for tour. With gigs planned in Germany, Switzerland, Austria and the Czech Republic, they are going to play 4 European countries within 9 days. Joining them will be Bielefeld-based punk rock outfit Modern Saints.
Somehow it feels like this website is all about linking the most recent records that were made available for streaming online. Anyway, another three great bands have apparently finished their recordings and now allow us to listen to their upcoming releases. This includes America's finest emo punks Make Do And Mend and their new 12" called "Don't Be Long" as well as UK-based bands Hindsights and Cavalcades.
Sheffield-based duo Nai Harvest allows a first preview of their forthcoming record. "Hairball" is to be released on Topshelf Records (USA) in late April and will be the sequel to last year's flower-shaped split 12" with playlounge.
