GOOD CHARLOTTE REVEALED AS SLAM DUNK FESTIVAL’S JOINT-HEADLINER WITH JIMMY EAT WORLD

 

One of 2017’s most guarded secrets can now be revealed… Slam Dunk Festival will have not one, but two major headline artists! Pop-punk titans Good Charlotte will be joining the previously announced emo-rock legends Jimmy Eat World. Their co-headline performance is set to be a defining moment for the festival as it marks the Slam Dunk Festival debut of both show-stopping artists.
This ground-breaking line-up news will also see PVRIS, Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes, Creeper, Thursday, Every Time I Die, Knuckle Puck, Crown The Empire and Real Friends, perform momental live sets over the May Bank Holiday weekend.

From bursting into the public consciousness with their chart-conquering pop punk through to becoming true kings of their genre via stints on MTV and six huge studio albums, few bands have had the staying power of Good Charlotte. Lead by the Madden brothers Benji and Joel, the multi-platinum stars will be at Slam Dunk to prove exactly why they’ve stayed at the top of their game over the past two decades.

Few bands have had the stratospheric rise of Massachusetts three piece PVRIS. Since their inception in 2012 they’ve gone from strength to strength and garnered a legion of fans in the process. Next year they’ll bring their signature anthemic rock, as found on this year’s acclaimed full length ‘All We Know Of Heaven, All We Need Of Hell’, to Hatfield, Leeds and Birmingham for a show that’s not to be missed. They last played the festival in 2015, after which being originally booked for the new bands stage were upgraded to the main stage due to their sudden rise in popularity. Now they return in 2018 to be one of the festival’s biggest artists.

One of the most incendiary live acts on the planet, Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes are a band born to reach staggering heights. After standing as one of the most recognisable voices in modern British rock over the past decade, Frank and his Rattlesnakes have had a mammoth rise over the past 18 months – releasing two vastly acclaimed albums, capturing festival audiences with sets of the weekends and culminating in their biggest headline show to date at London’s Brixton Academy. Witness the revolution first hand when they take the stage at Slam Dunk 2018.

Frank Carter says:
‘I cannot wait to play Slam Dunk – this has been an incredible couple of years for us, and I can’t think of a better way to start our festival season in 2018 than showing up and absolutely dominating at Slam Dunk. Get ready – we’ll see you in the Snake pit!’

A phenomenon not seen for many a-year, Creeper are the hottest name in alternative music. The release of their debut album ‘Eternity, In Your Arms’ captured the mysterious yet anthemic heights that they’ve been promising since they first emerged on the scene. Lead from the charismatic figure of frontman Will Gould, Creeper aren’t just set to break through but takeover British alternative music – and Slam Dunk 2018 is bound to be another insatiable introduction to the special world they’re forming

Creeper say:
“It is with great excitement that we can announce today that we will be returning to Slam Dunk festival in 2018. Slam Dunk is always such an important event for our scene each year, and it is an incredible privilege to be playing the main stage. See you all there!”

After seven years away, Thursday will return to the UK in 2018, with Slam Dunk Festival the only place to catch one of the most hotly-anticipated reunions in alt-rock history. Lead by the inimitable presence of frontman Geoff Rickly, Thursday reached out and touched at the hearts and minds of a generation – with records like ‘Full Collapse’ and ‘War All The Time’ still heralded as some of the most influential snapshots in time that the genre has ever seen. After time spent apart, and a feverish demand for their return – Slam Dunk 2018 is primed for a truly special moment as Thursday finally return to prove just why they sit in a class of their own. Having having played the very first Slam Dunk Festival in 2007, it is indeed a momentous welcome back!

After last playing Slam Dunk in 2016, metalcore titans Every Time I Die can’t stay away and have promised more chaos in the moshpit than ever before. The Buffalo hardcore heavyweights have gained vast recognition on this year’s UK tour run, selling out the likes of KOKO, receiving 5Ks and delivering a visceral display of their force. Their performance will be an unmissable part of Slam Dunk 2018.

Joining these incredible names will be Crown The Empire, Real Friends and Knuckle Puck, all of which are set to return to the festival after memorable performances in 2014 and 2015. All three acts are set to serve up the perfect combination of anthemic metalcore complete with razor-sharp riffs, energetic post-emo choruses and classic pop-punk with an Illinois twist, May is set to deliver the best Slam Dunk Festival to date!

 

After its most successful year to date in 2017, Slam Dunk Festival has been crowned the Best Metropolitan Festival at the UK Festival Awards! The news comes after the first huge names were announced for 2018, along with details of an expanded and new site for Slam Dunk South at Hatfield Park.
Over double the size of the previous location, Hatfield Park is located in the grounds of Hatfield House and situated directly opposite Hatfield train station, making it even more accessible and accommodating for festival goers wishing to revel in Slam Dunk Festival’s alternative extravaganza.
Festival Director, Ben Ray comments:
“I’m very happy to win this award of course. The event that we put on is very unique, with each of the 3 metropolitan sites offering something different….The fenced off festival site built in a city centre in Leeds, the only multistage music festival to be held on the NEC complex and I’m glad after 8 years on the university campus in Hatfield we could win the award for them the final time there.”
Slam Dunk Festival 2018 will begin in its spiritual home of Leeds, Millennium Square, before travelling to the new location of Hatfield Park, and finishing at the beloved Birmingham NEC.

A Brief History of Steampunk

Steampunk is a movement in popular culture which has broken free of its dirigible moorings and crossed over into everything from film to music. Steampunk started as a sub-genre of science fiction or science fantasy that incorporates technology and aesthetic designs inspired by 19th-century industrial steam-powered machinery. Although its literary origins are sometimes associated with the cyberpunk genre, steampunk works are often set in an alternative history of the 19th century’s British Victorian era or American “Wild West”, in a future during which steam power has maintained mainstream usage, or in a fantasy world that similarly employs steam power. However, steampunk and Neo-Victorian are different in that the Neo-Victorian movement does not extrapolate on technology and embraces the positive aspects of the Victorian era’s culture and philosophy – Kim Newman’s early Anno Dracula work, for example, roots itself in Victorian Britain and surrounds itself with notable characters from the era, but has them behaving in the manner of the time.

http://www.felineandstrange.com

Steampunk most recognisably features anachronistic technologies or retro-futuristic inventions as people in the 19th century might have envisioned them, and is likewise rooted in the era’s perspective on fashion, culture, architectural style, and art. Such technology may include fictional machines like those found in the works of H. G. Wells and Jules Verne, or of the modern authors such as Philip Pullman. Other examples of steampunk contain alternative-history-style presentations of such technology as steam cannons, lighter-than-air airships, analogue computers, or such digital mechanical computers as Charles Babbage’s Analytical Engine.

www.bbblackdog.com

The first known appearance of the term steampunk was in 1987, though it now retroactively refers to many works of fiction created as far back as the 1950s or 1960s. It can occasionally become entwined with other sub-genres, such as H.P.Lovecraft’s world of Old Ones and humans in peril. Steampunk has also come to refer to any of the artistic styles, clothing fashions, or subcultures that have developed from the aesthetics of steampunk fiction, Victorian-era fiction, art nouveau design, and films from the mid-20th century. The most recent entrant to this world has been music, the Steampunk Records label putting together an entire roster of bands who subscribe to the artistic ethics of the genre. As well as putting out albums of the bands, they have also performed concerts around the UK, seeing audiences attend the shows dressed, as the bands do, in suitably neo-Victorian style. As a movement, it succeeds largely as there are no boundaries relating to age or genre, the inclusivity and the fact that it is already deliberately slightly dated, meaning that it has a longevity that many movements which have been and gone have lacked.

Richie Ramone is famed for his time spent drumming for the iconic New York City rock band the Ramones. He spent almost five frenzied years, between 1983 and 1987, charging his way around the world; playing over 500 shows, whilst recording three albums. Praised by Joey Ramone for putting ‘the spirit back into the band’, Richie was the only Ramones drummer to be credited as the sole composer and writer of six Ramones songs.

 

In 2013, Richie Ramone catapulted back onto the rock’n’roll music scene with the release of solo debut album: ‘Entitled’. He now continues to uproot modern music culture with Cellophane’ – a stripped down, raw rock album; fully loaded with gravelly vocals, catchy guitar riffs and 80’s punk-rock vigour.

 

Aggressively catchy, ‘Cellophane’s’ powerful lead single ‘I Fix This’ perfectly reflects the ‘take no bollocks’ pure-punk attitude of the album. Yet showcasing Richie’s musical versatility – the heartfelt ‘I’m Not Ready’ delivers a more personal, toned-down melody. Other noteworthy tracks include Depeche Mode cover ‘Enjoy the Silence’ and ‘Pretty Poison’, which was penned by Richie during the 1980’s.

 

Watch the video for ‘I Fix This’ Here:

 

“Attack of the Animal Boy! World Tour” is an un-missable event for fans of the Ramones, Nirvana, Sex Pistols and Green Day. Throughout the shows Richie Ramone will be accompanied by his steadfast band of Rock’n’Roll veterans: lead guitarist Ronnie Simmons; bassist and vocalist Clare Misstake, and drummer/rhythm guitar player Ben Reagan.

Sneaky Nixons Release Firey Riotous New Single ‘Schadenfreude’ – OUT 8th August

The Sneaky Nixons set to release huge rock hit ‘Schadenfreude’ on the 8th of August 2016.

Listen to the new single HERE:

The Liverpool based and appropriately named ‘Sneaky Nixons’ champion a sound that is cheeky, punky and rough around the edges. That being said their production quality is absolutely impeccable.

The band describes themselves as an angry, semi political, semi religious, part feminist, sloppy activist group who play riouts, steam train guitar music. The have declared war on electronic dance music, guns and non believers of their rock-n-roll escapade. Flashy, Blase and with a startling superiority complex the band have no time for humdrum normality, preferring the out of control, dangerous and volatile and fast paced lifestyle of living in a brutal riotous and rock-n-roll fashion.

Similar to the infamous Rolling Stones, Blur, Oasis and Elvis Presley the band arent short of musical influences to be the next huge rock sensation. Having already toured Berlin, Amsterdam, Hamburg and Rotterdam the band are beginning to leave their mark globally.

Though the band use fairly little equipment they use intelligence, control and arrangement to created and incredible live performance. Uniquely using slide guitar, a megaphone, whammy bar and of course lighter fluid to set their guitars on fire!

New York noise-punks Polonium release tumultuous track ‘Tuberculosis’

Originally written 20 years ago and only now released, this skull-crushing brain-battering single sees Polonium frontman Foley portraying the character of an office drone on the edge to the accompaniment of some brutal and relentless chugging guitars.

I spent the 12 best years of my life / Behind a desk”

Many years in the making, the album’s latest album Seraphim is thankfully anything but a waste time.
