Following the incredible success of their last single ‘Meteor’, which spent five weeks on the BBC Radio 1 playlist – including three weeks on the A-list – ARCHITECTS have announced new single ‘Little Wonder’, featuring Royal Blood’s Mike Kerr – out June 11th.
‘Little Wonder’ is featured on the band’s first UK number 1 album ‘For Those That Wish To Exist’, which was released late February and has had 95 million global streams so far.
Katatonia & Solstafir will head out in January and February 2022 on the “Twilight Burials” tour, a 31-date co-headline tour of the UK and Europe. The coming together of these two revered masters of melancholy seems only natural. For over a quarter of a century both artists have favoured the emotional connection that their music brings over all else. Theirs is a world where ‘heavy’ is a force of nature; where progress comes from within, outwardly changing their musical output into something almost unrecognisable from the extreme metal that carried it in the early days.
Following on from the release of their new album ‘Obsidian’ in May 2020, PARADISE LOST finally bring their masterpiece live on stage in February 2022. Today, the British gothic metal legends announce their “Obsidian Moon” tour, featuring special guests MOONSPELL.
PARADISE LOST frontman Nick Holmes says: “We’re looking forward to doing a full UK tour again and playing some long-awaited shows in support of ‘Obsidian’, and who better to bring along for some of the ride than our old friends from Portugal, Moonspell?Thanks to you all for your continued support during these crazy times, and we hope to see you there. Until then, stay safe and stay well. Cheers, x
”Fernando Ribeiro from MOONSPELL adds:“We couldn’t think of a more perfect way of getting back to touring than to join forces with the mighty Paradise Lost, a group we always looked up to and that helped ignite our very own existence as a band.”
One of the biggest selling, most iconic and much loved punk rock bands of all time, and just ahead of the release of their brilliant and hugely anticipated new album ‘Let The Bad Times Roll’, THE OFFSPRING have announced a UK arena tour for this November, the ‘Let The Bad Times Roll Tour’. On top of this, support on all dates will be the Swedish rock favourites, THE HIVES. Having a tour with two such incredible bands comes around very rarely these days, and this tour is one not to be missed under any circumstances.
The world’s favorite Pirate Metal Drinking Crew, ALESTORM, are taking you on a wild, wet ride across the seven seas with their new live album/DVD/BluRay, Live in Tilburg, out May 28, 2021 via Napalm Records!
Tilburg’s hyped up crowd loses its mind when ALESTORM kicks off the live version of the unofficial pirate’s anthem “Keelhauled”! The crazy live version of one of their most successful singles to date – with about 25 million streams on both Spotify and YouTube – marks a highlight at each ALESTORM show, while every crowd on the planet shouts the lyrics out loud!
Early last year, Sepultura released their sensational new record Quadra –a contemporary thrash monument, backed by sublime melodies and technical dexterity. Itching to perform new tracks live to their fans, the band are thrilled to announce a UK leg to their Quadra European Tour, already announced for later this year.
Andreas Kisser stated, “I’m so thrilled to announce the UK tour for November, it has been a crazy year and I miss the stage so much. We will have the chance to perform the news songs from our last album QUADRA for the first time plus all the best songs of our career. I can’t wait to see you all again from the stage, don’t miss this! Stay safe and well and see you all soon!”

It goes without saying that the global metal scene would not be the same without Sepultura. For 35 years now, the Brazilian icons are not only a band revered worldwide; they have been, are and forever will be at the very forefront of thrash metal, trailblazing ever since they released their long-since legendary debut album Morbid Visions in 1986.
While quickly establishing themselves as leaders of the second wave of thrash in the late eighties, to this day they never came even close to stagnation. Quadra, their mighty new undertaking, is proof of a will unbroken, a thirst unquenched and a quality so staggeringly high it’s a wonder this band doesn’t implode. Now three albums deep into what may very well be their strongest incarnation yet – uniting the talents of old-school members Andreas Kisser (guitars, vocals) and Paulo Xisto Pinto Jr. (bass), vocal force of nature Derrick Leon Green (vocals) and drummer Eloy Casagrande – Sepultura are an unleashed power to be reckoned with, uniting bucketloads of experience and youthful vigour in a totally revived way.
