Band Interview: Hora Douse

Hora Douse are an up and coming alternative punk trio from Manchester, England. After releasing their excellent EP Crash (which I reviewed for Seeing Your Scene back in February), we caught up with the band to see how the first ever Seeing Your Scene tour with Petrol Girls went. First up, how did you get into punk? We all […]

Album Review: Walleater – I/II

Signing a band from a foreign country is not an easy decision, but for Tiny Engines, it’s easy for anyone to see why they chose Leeds, UK’s Walleater to join the likes of Restorations and The Hotelier as well as emo favourites Tigers Jaw on the Tiny Engines roster. Tiny Engines will release the band’s […]

Album Review: Delta Sleep – Twin Galaxies

I first saw Delta Sleep playing with Tera Melos at the eclectic Green Door Store in Brighton, and was instantly won over. Each member of the band showed tremendous skill, as often expected with math-rock bands (I don’t claim to be an expert at all; I am fond of the genre, but as an amateur […]

Live Review: Touché Amoré + supports (Nottingham, 10/08/15)

Touché Amoré earlier in the year announced a four-date tour of the UK to follow their appearance at Hevy Fest. Seemingly due to the exclusivity of their Hevy show, all of the shows announced were up past the Midlands, and we were lucky enough to catch them at Rescue Rooms in Nottingham. New Moon kicked things […]

Band Interview: Home Schooled

There are a few incredibly pressing questions: Do all good things have to come to an end? And, is it really cooler to burn out as opposed to fading away? Or is it even cooler to say you’re going to break up just as you release new music and then change your mind in order […]

We sat down for a chat with A Wilhelm Scream’s Trevor Reilly (guitar/vocals) before their headline show in Nottingham. We spoke about their roots in New Bedford, the ten year anniversary of their classic album Ruiner and their plans for their next record.  How’s this tour going so far? Oh, it’s going awesome so far.

Rail-27

Band Interview: Rail-27

We caught up with the smelliest band in the country, Reading’s skacore noise-makers Rail-27, ahead of their “Stinking Up and Down the Nation” mini-tour which starts this weekend, including a Seeing Your Scene show in Bristol at The Chelsea Inn on Saturday 22nd. What can people expect from your upcoming mini-tour? Eye watering odour, ear-bleeding […]

Album Review: Ralph Cola – National Zero

You may be asking: “what is a DIY Punk webzine doing, writing about pop-music?” My answer is: “fuck you”. You like Mac DeMarco? Good, you’ll be digging the newest adventure of Ralph Cola, National Zero. Well, maybe ‘adventure’ is a bit of a strong word. As delicious and sweet as opener “Doing Nothing” sounds, it […]
