Moose Blood Announce Indefinite Hiatus

Okay, so this announcement will come as a surprise, and for some not so much. By now, everyone’s probably aware of Moose Blood being kicked of Good Charlotte’s 2019 tour due to accusations being made against the band. Specifically, they were made towards Eddy Brewerton after he reportedly stole explicit photographs from a woman’s phone, before distributing them to other members of the band via a private WhatsApp group.

Since the allegations have surfaced, Moose Blood have been removed from show opportunities. The band are taking legal action against these allegations.

Since they’ve been kicked off their support slot for Good Charlotte, the band have taken to Facebook to announce their hiatus. Below is their following statement.

Good Charlotte Announce UK Tour Support, Drop Moose Blood From Tour Hours Later

Good news and bad news on this one.

Earlier today, Good Charlotte had released details of who would be supporting them on their 2019 Generation RX EU Tour. This was originally going to be Boston Manor and Moose Blood.

Hours after announcing this, they posted a statement via Twitter saying, “we’ve decided to remove Moose Blood from our recently announced tour”.

Moose Blood’s removal comes off the back of accusations that have been made towards the band earlier this year, specifically towards Eddy Brewerton after he reportedly stole explicit photographs from a woman’s phone, before distributing them to other members of the band via a private WhatsApp group.

Since the allegations have surfaced, Moose Blood have been removed from show opportunities. The band are taking legal action against these allegations.

Boston Manor will remain as support, with a replacement support act TBC at a later date

Live Review: Moose Blood @ O2 Academy, Newcastle

O2 Academy, Newcastle. 06-03-18

Support: Honey Lung, The Dangerous Summer

 

First up was Honey Lung, a loud and buzzing groups of lads from London. they seemed a little of a wildcard support choice to me at first because of their DIY aesthetic. But if anything, music has taught me not to judge a book by its cover. You always have to give a band a chance in this day and age because a band such as this might just surprise you can convince you to listen more. And they did exactly that. It wasn’t just the smart hooks and riffs that turned me over when I first heard them. It was their stage presence because I believe they’ll be ones to watch this year and with that will come more time to finalise and capture that signature sound that they played here tonight.

Now, The Dangerous Summer. I’ve been absolutely hyped to see this band for a long time now! When they first came on they absolutely ripped through ‘Fire’ and ‘Where I Want To Be’, much to the applause of the growing number of fans inside of the venue. Possibly the funniest moment at the show is when their vocalist/bassist ‘AJ Perdomo’ asks about the reality series Geordie Shore. “Am I allowed to say that’s good? I like it”. Television preferences aside, the crowd does get a kick out of it. The set might be a little lacklustre, maybe down due to the fan reception who were more concerned with Moose Blood but I still think they woke everyone up to get them hyped.

When it actually came to Moose Blood, however, the fans didn’t need any help. They tuned in when the lights came down to a false start but when the backing music kicked in, there were claps from everyone, left, right and centre. ‘Have I Told You Enough’ kicked in and everyone was just singing along to that as well as ‘Honey’ where you could just tell this was going to be phenomenal and nothing less than inspirational as they took songs from all over their catalogue to the point where there were a lot of fans jumping on their friends shoulders. What they showcase is their dedication to the previous records but acknowledging their future in the form of the new record, ‘I Don’t Think I Can Do This Anymore’  which is going to drop this week.

Also, the lack of on-stage chatter just intensifies the performance with the tracks such as ‘Cherry’ and ‘Bukowski’ where the audience is just wrapped up in the emotion of the performance of the band. Moose Blood is nothing if not captivating to watch where we all share in the spoils of their musical creativity to enjoy this deep connection to the tracks themselves. You can see they’ve matured into their sound now and what signifies next, is that only the best is still to come from this band.

Rating: 7/10

Now the king of partying, AKA Andrew W.K has debuted a video for the title track off his upcoming record, You’re Not Alone’. The record is set to be released March 2nd via Red Music/Sony Music.

 

New music alert as well because this track is the solo project of badXchannels, also known as Craig Owens (best known for his vocal work in Chiodos and D.R.U.G.S). This is his first track to be dropped this year as he ventures into something new. This is the video for ‘Don’t Come And See Me’.

 

Now Black Veil Brides new record only dropped last month but now they’ve released a video to accompany their latest single, ‘Wake Up’ and as you can guess it’s got the themes of Wild Ones and prophets. Check it out below.

 

Now, this is a band I can’t wait to hear more of! This band are the Scottish metal group known as Bleed From Within and they’ve dropped a video for their lead single off their upcoming LP, ‘Era’, which is set to drop April 6th via Century Media Records.

 

This legendary Pop-Punk band are currently on tour in the UK at the moment on some dates which are their biggest ever! To mark the occasion though, Bowling For Soup have dropped a video for their track ‘Catalyst’.

Apparently, this one has been in the works for a while now. Jonathan David has been reportedly in the works since 2008. This is Jonathan Davis first track off his upcoming solo record as well as a solo artist in general. This is ‘What It Is’.

 

And last but certainly not least is the stellar new record from rockers Moose Blood. This is off the upcoming record “I Don’t Think I Can Do This Anymore’ and is their next single in the form of ‘Hav I Told You Enough’.

Music Video’s 22/12/17

I told you I’d try and I succeeded! This next music video post is on time! It’s the last one before Christmas hits us so I’ll try and squeeze in one or two festive tracks!  Here we go.

The first video comes from Moose Blood which is the first single from their upcoming record, ‘I Don’t Think I Can Do This Anymore’. It’s full of vibrant blue and red smoke as well as their performance.

 

Now, heavy heroes Machine Head have dropped a video for their new single ‘Catharsis’, the title track of the upcoming studio release which focuses on Butoh. It’s a Japanese form of expressive dance which was born out of the nuclear bombings.

 

Remember Luke Holland? The drummer who used to be in The Word Alive? Well, he’s back! This is his new band Heavy Eyes and their debut music video for ‘Bad’.

 

Now, our attention shifts to Liverpudlian Singer/Songwriter Bronnie with her new single’Danced With The Devil’ for which she’s partnered up with the Philadelphia based mental health organization, Buddy Project. All profits from the single will be collected and given to the charity and the track is also rumored to feature on her upcoming EP,  ‘Get A Grip’.

 

Now, let’s go heavy again. End put a fantastic EP ‘From The Unforgiving Arms Of God’ earlier in 2017 and now there’s a new track and video out from this band. Check out Necessary Death below.

 

Waterpark’s new record Entertainment is readying up for release next month as one the first great records of the year. Their new track, ‘Lucky People’ is the second track off this release after ‘Blonde’ dropped a few months ago.

 

Ahead of their upcoming UK tour, the Alaskan metalcore band 36 Crazyfists have dropped a video for their track, ‘Wars To Walk Away From’, which is off their latest record, ‘Lanterns’.

 

Now the next video comes from a fictional group known as The Relentless, from the film American Satan. It’s officially released next month but be sure to check out ‘Cadence Of My Heart’ below.

 

Now Issues have had an amazing year but they have one final surprise for their fans! This comes from their latest release, Headspace and it is the fantastic track, Hero.

 

And lastly, this group hails from Thornaby in the UK. For this, they “George Lucas’ed” it “and just updated our old video with a fee bits of special effects and new clips and a new none demo version of the song”. Also, “Han shot first.”
