June 1st, 2014

Download 2014 Bands You Know Thrash Hits

In two weeks time, we will be at Download Festival 2014. Still the single biggest weekend in the UK rock calendar, once again around about 100,000 rock fans will descend upon Donington Park for three days of music, drinking, debauchery, and casual sexism. To get us in the mood for the first three of those things (let’s hope there’s a lot less of the fourth this year, right guys?), the next two Sunday Slaylists are all about the line-up to this year’s festival.

This week: The big guns. The heavy hitters. The bands you know.

In case you missed the news earlier this week, we’re teaming up with Songkick Detour to try to bring some of the best bands in the world to London. Some of them have split up (but occasionally threaten to get back together), some of them have reformed but just not made the trip over to the UK yet, and some of them have never been to these shores. This week’s Sunday Spotify Slaylist will hopefully remind you why you need to pledge to see these bands.

May 16th, 2013

detour london vs thrash hits 2013

We saw the power of Songkick Detour back in February when, in conjunction with our big sister, DrownedinSound, Desaparecidos played their first UK show. It was impressive and it was powered by the crowd. They wanted to see Desaparecidos play live in London and they put their money where their mouths were. We want to do the same thing with some bands that we like.

Let’s see if we can get American Nightmare over to the UK. Let’s see if we can show SikTh that people want to see them live.

Remember last year when we started making noise about SikTh reuniting? And then they went and launched a merch store and an official Facebook page and then….well, nothing? It was kinda frustrating, wasn’t it?

Well, we got tired of waiting for more news on the SikTh reunion, so when we got one of the band’s former frontmen, Mikee Goodman, in front of a camera at Download Festival 2012, we just straight up asked him what on Earth was going on with regards to his former band.
