Ever since Arcane Roots started seeping into people’s consciousness, there has been one comparison that has repeatedly been brought up. A little band who have recently scored a number one album and completed a sold-out arena tour of the country by the name of Biffy Clyro. There’s no disputing the two bands have their similarities, with frontman Andrew Groves even looking pretty similar to Simon Neil.

It still sounds like Gallows. That’s the important thing. Sure, Frank Carter – the angry ginger kid spitting blood and guts at the front – is gone, but it still sounds like Gallows. It’s the rule, isn’t it? Whoever shouts loudest gets all the credit but, despite the cries of many immediately after his departure, there was always more to this band than just one man. While their truly iconic former singer can never be replaced like-for-like, here are 32 minutes explaining why Gallows Mk II is seemingly here to stay nonetheless.

WIN: a pair of tickets to Arcane Roots’ Kerrang! Awards show at the Camden Barfly

Arcane Roots are the kind of band you should like if you like the clever-clever bits of Biffy Clyro (but not the nice-nice bits about Biffy Clyro) combined with the sharper bits of Muse (without the vibrato histrionics that annoy us about Muse). They’ve recently signed to PIAS, and next month they’re put out a mini album by the name of Left Fire. And to celebrate that fact, they’ve given us a pair of tickets to give away to their Kerrang! Awards Show gig at the Camden Barfly on 05 June 2012. You’d have to be pretty lazy not to click the ‘Read More’ button and to enter our competition to win them. Unless you live somewhere that isn’t near London, we suppose.

Whatever. It’s free gig tickets. Stop complaining and enter the competition!
