“Co-headlining tours” are just a thing booking agents set up to stop bands’ respective managers throwing a hissy fit over where their charges are in the running order, right? The most recent players of this deadly game of brinkmanship are Cancer Bats and While She Sleeps. We sent Josh Graham along to the Glasgow leg of the tour to scope out which band came out on top.

6 things we learnt while watching Cancer Bats and While She Sleeps in Glasgow:

The Answer are one of those bands we’re just glad exists. Sure, sure, they aren’t exactly breaking any molds with their respectfully-retro brand of heavy rock, but they most definitely do it was a damn sight more panache than 99% of the naff revivalist bands we’ve sat through over the last seven years. They’re currently out on the road to tour their latest album, Raise A Little Hell, and they’ve brought The Picturebooks and Bad Touch along with them.

Naturally, our man in Brighton, Mike Burnell was down for the whole shebang to get lots of photos of the whole lot of them when they turned up to play a show in his town earlier this week. Check the whole damn gallery out after the jump.

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!

Look, we know it’s nearly Christmas, but that doesn’t mean that the relentless touring machine at the heart of heavy metal has stopped yet. Kreator and Arch Enemy have only just finished a punishing double-headliner tour. We sent Pete Long along to headbang himself senseless at the London leg of the tour.

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.

Betraying The Martyrs at Breakout Festival 2014 by Mike Burnell Thrash Hits

Wait, did we say outdoor festival season had ended with Reading and Leeds? Well, we were wrong. A whole truckload of bands descended upon Brighton Racecourse last weekend for Breakout Festival. We sent our newest snapper, Mike Burnell, down to shoot the best and the brightest for Thrash Hits.
