This month, Gallows drive a dustcart of misery to the door, Deez Nuts slap you on the back and refer to you as ‘Bro’, The Hyena Kill laugh manically in your face, 7.5 Tonnes of Beard crush you to death and Lantern For A Gale stalk your living room like some wild beast. Good times.

Rock Sound 100% Volume: 197

This month, the hardcore punk of Statues and Sick Feeling get a thumbs up, as does the pop-rock beauty of Fort Hope and Daveit Ferris, Alright The Captain and their oddball instrumental shift, Himself and their bonkers ramble and Kings and Sirens In The Delta for their stoner-rock ‘n roll fury.

Rock Sound 100% Volume CD: 192

This month’s Rock Sound CD (192) praises Frnkiero andthe Cellabration for their quirky, distorted punk, Rob Lynch’s folk-happiness, Solemn Sun and their doom and gloom, Creeper’s punk rock and Code Orange and their scrambled, savage soundscapes.

Rock Sound 100% Volume CD: 187

Despite their being a lot of second-stage UK-festival metalcore fodder on this month’s CD, this isn’t too bad. Being As An Ocean, Killer Be Killed, Martyr Defiled, Get Involved!, Frameworks, En Garde, Hey Vanity, Oh Captive and Out For Tomorrow all stand out from the crowd and are all worth your time.

Yearbook – Old bones

Two chords into this EP I went ‘oh yeh pop-punk/emo like that other song of theirs I could be anyone’ then the third chord came and shat on that hypothesis. It was discordant but not that heavy, what it really reminded me of was Inme, remember them?

Rock Sound 100% Volume CD: 185

The Rock Sound CD reviews are baaaaack. What’s hot this month? Well, We Are The In Crowd and I Am The Avalanche bringing some punk rock delights, Architects and Buried In Verona getting all shouty, Wild Throne for being fucking spazzcore lunatics, Nothing sounds LOVELY, Weathered Hands and Broker getting gnarled and gritty and Sea Bastard chugging DEM RIFFS.

Rock Sound 100% Volume: 181

This month’s CD is jam-packed with good. The only duffer is the first track by I See Stars, which is a load of old toilet. You definitely need to check out Black Dogs, A Wilhelm Scream, Hildamay, A Lot Like Birds, Malevolence and Into It. Over It. All good eggs as far as I’m concerned.

Rock Sound 100% Volume: CD 180

Interesting month this one – Digits, The Mayday Parade, Emperor Chung, Knuckle Puck, Vamps, Gates, Bear and Protest The Hero all do a good job and are worth checking out.

This month, Deaf Havana, Touché Amoré, Kids In Glass Houses, TRC, State Champs, 65Daysofstatic, Modern Life Is War, The Charm The Fury, We Never Learned To Live, The First and The Red Paintings are all worth checking out. As is Grand Theft Auto V, which spoiler alert: you steal cars on.
