Excited to see what the next theme is. I'd be tempted to work on one myself and would be cool with a deadline in place to push me to finish something!

Ticket bought for London!

I love The Dome as a venue. Should be a great place for them and can see this selling out pretty quick.

All over this! Art direction looks very cool and I'm a huge fan of the music Jim Guthrie has produced for other soundtracks like Indie Game the Movie and Superbrothers Sword & Sworcery EP.

Glad to...

Jason - I think you've checked these out in the past, but the new Strung Out album could be exactly what you're looking for when you say you're after aggressive punk in the vein of A Wilhelm Scream....

Coolest response to constructive criticism ever.

I'm really enjoying this album so far after a few play throughs. This is why mid-year lists rule. Would've totally missed this out until 2016 came...

I've preordered everything Jimmy Eat World has put out since Bleed American. This might not be JEW, but this is still getting that preorder from me.

Had a good catchup of all the Glastonbury sets on BBC iPlayer. Came out of it very impressed by:

The headline performance gave me a new found love for the latest album....

Actually laughed out loud at the "Fuck that shit" hook. I love how Nic pulls absolutely no punches with his lyrics. Starting to get very excited for the album. This better fall in time for me to...

Well that was fun! Looking forward to the results from this one.

Man it is so good to hear Nic and Bobby together again after so many years. I was wondering when this was going to come about after listening to that Voice & Verse podcast with Nic. I definitely...

I noticed this when I saw them back in January too. He seems to use natural vibrato a lot more live than he does on the album. It's certainly a unique trait of his voice, but it does sound misplaced...

I actually think his voice is getting better with age. So much soul in it these days.

I saw him earlier in the month and his performance of Blood & Wine was flawless.

Was lucky enough to catch them live a few weeks back and it was so good. Loved the live version of Digital Age so will try and get my hands on that newly recorded version.

Not at all. The Earth Sings Mi Fa Mi is one of the best concept albums ever recorded, full stop. I love Between the Heart and the Synapse, but The Earth Sings forms a much stronger connection with...

Yeah Makers is my favourite of the back catalogue. I only own True Devotion, The Brag & Cuss, Maker and Suicide Medicine so I've still got a lot of other albums to check out. It's one hell of a...

Oh man I envy you a lot for catching Reuben while they were still together, especially at a gig with HIFH!

I was too late to the party with Reuben and got into them shortly after they broke up. I...

The line-up is ridiculously good this year. Annoyingly can't make it.

There are a lot of great line ups in the UK this year though. Hevy Fest is a big stand out with Thrice, Coheed & Cambria, The...

So interested in hearing this. Hell is for Heroes were such a solid band and that is one of their best songs. Good to see they are still remembered and celebrated by others in the music industry.
