Neck Deep live by Mike Burnell Thrash Hits

Neck Deep are one of those bands who seem to have everything coming to an exciting head all at once. Despite spending much of 2014 on the road, they still managed to win a K! Award for Best Newcomer, and support Blink 182 at their Brixton Academy shows. Now every man and his hype-chasing dog are on their case. Well played, lads from Wrexham.

So natuarally, we made sure our man Mike Burnell was on hand to get lots of photos of them when the band turned up to play a show in Brighton last week. We don’t stop chasing those web clicks!

Crossfaith live in 2014 by Mike Burnell Thrash Hits

Our favourite thing about Crossfaith is in their video toJägerbomb’, to which a mutual acquaintance of the band and Thrash Hits remarked to us “that’s such a load of bollocks – I’ve been out on the town with those lads and they can’t put it away like that.” Oh, Crossfaith, you scamps.

Whatever. That was just a pithy intro paragraph to this post featuring a gallery of photos from the Brighton date of their UK tour, shot by our man Mike Burnell. Check it out.

A Day To Remember 2014 by Mike Burnell Thrash Hits

Last week it was Asking Alexandria, this week it’s A Day To Remember – this autumn really is packed to the guts with bands consolidating their status at the top of the Kerrangcore tree with some of the biggest tours they’ve ever mounted. ADTR are even big enough to bring Radio 1-playlist botherers, Lower Than Atlantis, along as their main support. We made sure our man in Brighton, Mike Burnell, was there to photograph the both of them.

Asking Alexandria- live in Brighton 2014 by Mike Burnell Thrash Hits

Asking Alexandria are bloody massive. We can’t pretend this is some flash in the pan rise-to-fame – they’ve been slowly building their fanbase over the past five years, and there’s no denying that they’ve reached the size needed to play some of the biggest venues in the UK (before making the step up to arena-level) by putting in some hard graft. As well as many years of dedicated dicking about. That’s why we sent our man in Brighton, Mike Burnell, along to photograph the Brighton date of the band’s biggest headline UK tour to date.

Take a good look at the artwork for Gnarwolves’ first full-length record (click the Read More tag below, yeah?). If you’ve seen a worse album cover this year then please let me know. A mountain of skateboards, a garish shade of green and a font that could’ve been lifted from a Goosebumps novel; it’s pretty much exactly what your parents picture when they think of punk. But as bad as it may be, it’s a fitting representation of the Gnarwolves circus, which has probably rolled into your town at some point over the past of couple of years.

It’s been a while coming, but this is the end product of the heavy riffing that Johnny Truant guitarist, Stuart Hunter was chugging out during the death throes of the Brighton metallers’ demise. It’s a three-pronged attack that post-hardcore, sludge metal and shoegaze. Anacondas is a wonderfully chaotic beast.

It’s funny how sometimes one bands breakthrough into the relative mainstream can remind everyone of something that was always good but that has simply fallen out of fashion. The King Blues rise and rise has thrown a fresh light onto the UK’s ska punk scene and kids are once again digging out their parents old Trojan Records box sets and embracing the brass. That can only be a good thing because we have a fine tradition of great ska punk bands in this country, the likes of Jesse James, Capdown and Adequate 7 all spring to mind, and now Imperial Leisure are throwing their hat into the ring to join these names and take advantage of the ‘ Blues recent success.
