Seaway-All-In-My-Head-EP

REVIEW: Seaway – ‘All In My Head’ EP

Artist: Seaway
Album: All In My Head
Genre: Pop Punk

I love a good album as much as the next person, but there is something far more exciting about stumbling across an almost perfect EP. When you only have four or five songs to work with, every note of every song matters. These releases can make or break careers, and in the case of Seaway’s latest release it seems an extended play may be just what the band needs in order to reach the next echelon of pop-punk popularity.…

SINGLE REVIEW: Bring Me The Horizon – “Drown”

Artist: Bring Me The Horizon
Song: “Drown
Album: TBA

Eighteen months have passed since Bring Me The Horizon released their critically acclaimed album Sempiternal, and in that time the band has rarely had more than a moment to rest. From appearances, to sold out performances around the world, the men of Bring Me The Horizon have spent very little time at home in the last year. Somewhere along the line they did manage to enter the studio, albeit only long enough to produce one new song, and earlier this week that material found its way online.

Damon Albarn Hints At New Gorillaz Album in 2016

Damon Albarn has been busy this year promoting his debut solo album, Everyday Robots, which was met with high praise upon release.
