8 incredible tracks you need in your life – August 2015

August was a month of great new releases. Here’s a round-up of the best tracks hitting the airwaves last month.

Simple Plan – Boom

If you want some unapologetic punk rock with a star-studded music video to accompany it, this is the track for you.

Shinedown – State Of My Head

State Of My Head is a pop influenced upbeat track, with a chorus that gets stuck in your head far too easily.

Bring Me The Horizon – True Friends

If the rest of Bring Me The Horizon’s next record, That’s The Spirit, is as good as True Friends, it is going to be fantastic.

Iron Maiden – Speed Of Light

For fans of classic metal, Iron Maiden’s new track is a triumphant return.

Parkway Drive – Crushed

If you’re looking for a track with heavy religious themes, Crushed is the track for you! It’s from their latest album IRE, due out on September 25.

Trivium – Until The World Goes Cold

Trivium have changed things up leading up to their next album Silence In The Snow, due out October 2.  Vocalist Matt Heafy has ditched harsh vocals to work on melodic ones, and they definitely pay off on this track.

Nothing But Thieves – Wake Up Call

I include Nothing But Thieves in most of my ‘incredible tracks’ round-ups, but that’s just because they’re absolutely fantastic, and Wake Up Call is no exception.

Eagles Of Death Metal – Complexity

EODM’s next record is due out on October 2, and this upbeat track is a great indication of things to come.


6 incredible tracks you need in your life – July 2015

Summer is well and truly here, even if the British weather hasn’t been notified of that, and July has seen a number of incredible summer tracks.  Without further ado, here’s the run-down.

Bring Me The Horizon – Throne

Throne is the second single from Bring Me The Horizon’s next album, That’s The Spirit, due to be released on September 11th.

The Maccabees – Spit It Out

I used to associate The Maccabees with cutesy indie pop/rock.  Their latest singles, which are heavier and a lot moodier, have put an end to that.

Foals – Mountain At My Gates

The latest track from Foals is accompanied by an awesome 360 degree video, best viewed at 4K on desktop or 720p on mobile devices.

New Found Glory ft. Hayley Williams – Vicious Love

This is a fabulous summery punk rock track, featuring some awesome vocals by Hayley Williams.  New Found Glory rarely go wrong.

The Bohicas – Swarm

The Bohicas are a brilliant new band, and their latest single Swarm is a great, upbeat track.

Frank Turner – Mittens

Frank Turner’s next album, Positive Songs For Negative People, is due out next month and I can’t wait to listen to it!  If Mittens is any indication, it’s gonna be a belter.
