Music Videos 24/08/18

Heyyyyyy. Sorry there wasn’t a post last week. I was in a massive work overdrive for my final hand in! Yes I did say final so hopefully, everything’s going to be back to normal ASAP!

We’re going to kick things off with a little bit of With Confidence and their video for “Moving Boxes”. This is coming off their newest record, Love And Loathing which was one of my favourite releases of 2018 thus far.


Now, Woes are one of my favourite new bands at the moment where they just instantly grabbed my attention. I’ve seen them twice so far this year and will see them when they support State Champs in the coming months which I can’t wait for! For now though, things are getting aesthetically pleasing in their brand new single for ‘Over it’.


Now for a little bit of Yorkshire Pop-Punk. And that’s something you don’t hear about often. Check out their latest offering in Can’t Say I’ll Miss You.


Moving on, Blackpool based band Boston Manor are gearing up for their new record release in ‘Welcome To The Neighbourhood’ which is set to be released via Pure Noise Records on September 7th. for now though, here’s their latest release in the form of ‘Bad Machine’.


For the next video we’re off to the South Coast. Up and Comers Acres have shared a new video for their amazing track, ‘Medicine’ where the writing of the lyrics for this was a cathartic process for vocalist Ben Lumber.


With Reading and Leeds Festival this weekend, Harrogate hardcore outfit Blood Youth shared the beginning of the latest chapter with their brand new song ‘Starve’. It’s their first material released since last year’s debut record ‘Beyond Repair’ and the first since introducing Matt Hollison into the fold as their full-time bassist. Check out Starve below.


Now as a solo act, William Ryan Key has been pursuing a solo career which is paying off well with the release of his debut EP, ‘Thirteen’. Taken from footage on the road, he has compiled them into the following video for ‘Old Company’.


Recently, Post-Harcore New Yorkers Glassjaw wrapped my a main stage slot at this year’s ArcTanGent festival and to top things off, they have dropped a video which comes from their acclaimed record, ‘Material Control’. Check out ‘My Conscience Weighs A Ton’ below.


And another band that are gearing up for a new record release is Pop-Punker’s WSTR. Identity Crisis is being released on the 31st of August but we’ve been given another look at what’s to offer with the video for ‘Crisis’.


We’ll go Post-Hardcore for the last video on this list. With Hands Like Houses, they’ve gone down a much more rock direction with the track for ‘Monster’. It’s the second single to come from their upcoming fourth record, ‘-Anon’ and is accompanied by a retro horror film feel.

And that’s it for this weeks music video list. I do apologise that there was a gap in last week’s countdown but hopefully it’ll be back to normal from next week.


Live Review: Can’t Swim @ Newcastle Think Tank

Newcastle Think Tank – 2/12/17

Support: Eat Defeat, Microwave

They’re just about to be playing with Creeper on their latest headlining tour for the Theatre of Fear but it’s all punk tonight at the Think Tank. Having a pretty decent chat with the band before the show, everything was set for Can’t Swim. They’re pumped to be back on UK Soil and ready to play some great music to the people.

Eat Defeat open to a lacklustre crow but it doesn’t matter to them. Their set wasn’t terrible but had some good moments. They were maybe opening a touch too soon as they’re probably as underappreciated as Microwave was for the duration of their set. Next time they return, however, they will rise to the occasion of a better crowd.

With Can’t Swim though, there was telling that tracks such as 50,000,000 and God Awful were better than they anticipated where this blend of Punk matched their vision of what they wished to achieve tonight.  The band might only be a few years old but the tidings of which are coming to fruition. Coming across where this might have been a difficult gig for them, it’s one small in comparison to what they were opening Creeper for where if this is a taste of what they’re set to accomplish, then I can’t wait to hear what they have planned next.

Rating: 3/5
