For fans of

THIS LIFE

Based on personal experiences, the track and video are a candid and vulnerable plea to anyone suffering from mental health problems associated with drug and alcohol dependency to overcome the stigma of asking for professional help.

For fans of

House Of Hatchets

HOUSE OF HATCHETS have been pricking ears and making waves with their immensely electrifying sound that brings to mind everyone from Killswitch Engage, Slipknot and Deftones to Funeral for a Friend. The irrepressible riff merchants have just unveiled a new video, Burn - https://youtu.be/k5CMyZiWRdY

For fans of

THIS LIFE

This song was written about a relative who moved on. Her house was the central meeting place for a large family so when that house and home disappeared it became hard to keep everything pulled together. It’s about accepting that that’s okay.

For fans of

I Fight Bears

South Wales metal beasts I FIGHT BEARS hurl out juggernaut riffage, imposing vocals, and thunderous beats. The alluring crew release a surprising and fascinating rendition of Spandau Ballet’s song, Gold, on Friday 16th November.

For fans of

Rouen

Hey Guys, Were Rouen. We are a 4 piece band who enjoy riffs and also enjoy being sadbois too. That can be pretty much personified in our new single 'Wander' which is our most melodic song we have released so far. We will be bringing out more stuff soon! More irish acts the better ;)
