A new album, due for release later this year, is currently in preproduction and will be recorded later this year with Matt Bond (Bullet For My Valentine, Dirty Youth, While She Sleeps) at the now legendary Nott-in Pill studio.

28/02/2012 - We Are Augustines Live in London and Nottingham

   

I seem to have an uncanny knack of getting myself into some wonderful musical moments just lately. No sooner had we calmed down from the Rescue Rooms, we were trekking down the M1 towards London to see the final leg of the We Are Augustines tour here in England. The other excuse was that they don't come back for a while except for a one off in May. And the other excuse other than that excuse was that, actually, they are really quite good

18/02/2012 - Big Country Live

On another extremely cold night in Nottingham, YOUNG GUNS  took hold of their first headline tour of 2012 in support of their forthcoming second album, 'Bones'.

01/02/2012 - Howler LIVE at Bodega, Nottingham.

  

This was one of those nights that those involved will remember for a long long time.

It wont be as well documented as that famous Pistols gig. There were no soon to be stars in the crowd. But to those who were there it will remain just as big. This was Rock & Roll.

27/01/2012 - The Kandidate Interview

"Danish thrash-metallers The Kandidate ready the release of their highly anticipated second album Facing the Immanent Prospect of Death and it promises to be another dose of high octane heavy metal! The band have worked hard on developing their sound, incorporating a ‘more diverse and powerful’ approach from the new line up. I talked to guitarist Allen Tvedebrink about the band’s transition from their debut release, their musical influences that have helped define this album and his take on the current musical climate."

23/01/2012 - TTL Overdrive/The James Warner Prophesies/Jam Abraham

"In my continuing quest to support our lesser known bands I wandered out to the darker reaches of Sheffield to South Sea. An old Working Mens Club re-vamped into quite a decent sized music venue by a couple of local bands, South Sea is slowly picking up momentum."

"Danish metal band Iron Fire prepare to release their seventh studio album on January 27th (Europe) and February 7th (USA) and it will be the third consecutive release for the present line up. The band has seen its fair share of ups and downs over the years with shifting line-ups and clashes with record companies testing the strength of the group’s foundations. However, they now set themselves up to release what is their most anticipated album to date, Voyage of the Damned, via Metal Blade Records. I spoke to guitarist Kirk Backarach to find out more about the upcoming record and discover more behind the roots of the band and what the future holds for their fans."

"The almighty doom metal trio Pilgrim are set to release their debut album ‘Misery Wizard’ via Metal Blade Records later this month and I interviewed member Jon Rossi to find out more about their upcoming release and how they intend to resurrect the Doom Metal genre. The American group intend to revive the classic sound of doom whilst entwining it with their own intriguing personality that fuses imagery of sorcery, secret societies, aliens and tyrants of evil! A definite band to watch out for in 2012."

19/09/2011 - Arch / Matheos Sympathetic Resonance Review

Arch / Matheos Sympathetic Resonance Review on Rockpulse"It’s been twenty-five years since John Arch last appeared on a full-length album. Since Awaken the Guardian, the former Fates Warning frontman released his solo EP A Twist of Fate in 2003 with help from former band mate Jim Matheos. An impressive return it seemed, yet it was to be another eight years before a full-length record would emerge..." and it's a cracker according to Rockpulse's review of Sympathetic Resonance.
