Music 2015

Published on January 19th, 2015 | by Ben Adsett



As is customary in January each year here is a list of bands you should keep an eye on in the next twelve months.



These former As We Sink boys have signed to Tangled Talk which says good things about their credientials from the start. They play hardcore that’s going to make you emote and they play it with passion and create a sound which is individual and accomplished.


Dark punks with true grit to their sound, the band started to create ever increasing waves last year and I am pretty sure this year will be the year for them. These Southampton ‘goth punks’ play fast, dark and loud hardcore inspired punk and are getting a well-deserved push this year and have been mentioned in almost every preview article I have read for 2015.



These four gents appeared in my radar at the tail end of last year and I was instantly sold, they play  hardcore with subtle nods towards a vast array of other influences from the melodies of Scandinavian melodic hardcore to the crushing breakdowns of grindcore. The band have been relentlessly on tour since forming just over nine months ago and this hardwork is clearly paying off, I would advise you to go and watch them on their first trip to the UK in March and if you are in Birmingham I will see you there!

Here are the dates

09 BIRMINGHAM Scruffy Murphys

10 LEEDS Wharf Chambers

11 NORWICH The Owl Sanctuary

12 LONDON Brixton Windmill


2 guys called John who make dingy shoegazey noise, they create a huge sound for a two piece and have a reputation for being an incredible live act.



Gospel Youth


These three Brightonions have absolutely torn through the start of 2015 with the release of an EP, videos debuting through Kerrang and a highly anticipated first live show. There is absolutely no doubting that they will be one of the most exciting acts in 2015. With their accessible pop rock combination and a blend of sharp hooks and ever building guitars I can’t wait to hear a full length.



Gloucester based melodic punk rock penned from the mind of Joe Banyard who has developed his solo work into a four piece melodic punk sound. The debut full length ‘This is Not My Home’ has created some really positive press and I am yet to read a bad review of a live performance.

Don’t Ask Records


This label seems to be growing into something quite special, have a listen to this sampler and I bet one of your favourite bands in 2015 turns out to be part of it
