  • Live Review: DevilDriver + Whitechapel in Sydney

    DD - Promo

    Day two of my gigging weekend, and I treated myself to DevilDriver and Whitechapel with my good friend Rachel. We would have been enjoying Brisbane’s Aversions Crown too, but the line into the venue was ridiculous and the band were forced to start as soon as doors opened. By the time we got in the door…

  • Royal Blood: Royal Blood

    Royal Blood Promo

    The self-titled album from two-piece band Royal Blood is gritty to say the least. I would caution any pro-tools advocate from listening to this album. It’s that mischievous, good looking girl standing at the jukebox about to pick her favorite song while simultaneously starring down her prey that night. The British duo, comprised of bass guitarist/vocalist…

  • Maroon 5: V

    Maroon 5

    When Los Angeles pop-rockers Maroon 5 released the first single off of their new album, “Maps”, it caught everyone (including myself) off guard. Sure, they mentioned that they were working on some new music, but with the release of the film Begin Again (which stars lead singer Adam Levine) it wouldn’t have been surprising if they…

    Touring is the coolest thing in the world. I’m writing this on tour, and I ardently think every musician should at the very least give it a shot. I’m traveling the East Coast playing shows almost every day, and I’m having the time of my life. There’s been a lot of talk particularly in the…

  • Live Review: Biffy Clyro In Sydney

    Biffy Clyro Promo

    The Biffy Clyro juggernaut rolled into Sydney Town on their first headlining tour of Australia. Opening band Calling All Cars were probably pretty good, but I wasn’t paying attention. I know, I know, but a) I didn’t get a media pass, I paid for this show with some of my finest Australian dollars, b) I’m…

  • Dead Leaves: Reinventing the Band

    Dead Leaves - Promo

    Cleveland indie rock band Dead Leaves is in a good place after making the decision to reinvent themselves. A year ago, the band went by the name of Call It Fiction and released their first EP, Amend Regret. It did well, streaming on the Property of Zack and AbsolutePunk websites. But for Alex Tucker (bass) and Elliot…
