One of the best things about music is its unpredictability. Sometimes, those moments can cause true horror but the best moments are just ace. That’s why we spend so much time caring so much – for those moments. It’s worth the risk. Most of the time. Here are all of the Thrash Hits contributors’ biggest surprises of 2013. They’re mainly bad, actually, but whatever…
Pure Love were a Brooklyn-based English-American rock band formed in 2011 by former Gallows frontman Frank Carter and ex-Hope Conspiracy and Suicide File guitarist Jim Carroll.

On April 24, 2012 the band released the lead single from their debut album, “Bury My Bones”, also available as a free download from their official website. The album "Anthems", produced by Gil Norton, was released on 4th February 2013. Read more on Last.fm

With the August Bank Holiday weekend rapidly approaching, Reading & Leeds Festivals are once again upon us.

In addition to those sweet as you like on-stage photos of Cancer Bats’ Main Stage triumph we showed you last weekend, our man Gobinder Jhitta took a shedload of photos at this year’s Leeds Festival. We basically gave him free rein to go shoot whatever and whoever he wanted, and he didn’t let us down – pretty much every band we ranted and/or raved about in our post-Reading & Leeds Festival podcast is featured in his gallery, which you can check out after the jump.

Happy Valentine’s Day! What did you do? Yeah, whatever. While most of the Thrash Hits squadron sat around on the sofa with no girls and even fewer friends, our intrepid Northern photographer, Ben Gibson popped down to Shepherd’s Bush to see Pure Love play their first ever show at Bush Hall.
