“What’s that? Did one man with an acoustic guitar just headline Glastonbury? Yes he did, and no matter what your taste in music is, this is an incredible achievement, and we have no doubt that someone watching was inspired to start a band/alternative project that very day. It’s important for festivals to progress, and provide something new/daring for the audience to avoid staying stagnant, and as well as Glastonbury, other events that contiue to set this important example are 2000 Trees Festival, ArcTanGent, Slam Dunk Festival, Download Festival.
So as we swim in the festival season, we are of course here to get you up to date with some of the bands taking on this hectic season in full force, whilst reflecting on Download Festival (it didn’t rain as much as normal, WO!) and Slam Dunk Festival with two HUGE reviews!
Rise Against have simply reshaped what we’ve come to expect from punk in a refreshing way, and as they continue to do that on their outstanding new album ‘Wolves’ we catch up with the band to discuss how it all started, all the way up to the present day. To say it’s been an incredible journey is an understatement, and we are so excited to have them back out in the alternative world, conquering wherever they decide to perform. A VERY important band.
If you are heading to London film and Comic Con this year, then you’ll want to read our interviews with Andy Briggs and Kevin Enhart who are both here to explain how they got involved with their alternative worlds, whilst telling us what we can see from them next!
