Album Review: This Wild Life - Clouded: Atmosphere Edition (2015 LP)

At the beginning of this year, the pop-punk acoustic duo of This Wild Life made an appearance at Soundwave Festival and needless to say - they held a fantastic set! I remember coming across one of their acoustic covers of A Day To Remember's "If It Means A Lot To You" and the brilliance of the acoustic vibes that resonated in their music was stunning. The poetic lyrics, the delicate string arrangement of guitars and the honesty and genuine feeling that is placed in each track were obviously crafted with perfection.

A Day To Remember have a penchant for putting on hugely popular shows when they are in Australia, regardless of whether they're on a headline tour or here for a festival.

the AU interview: Jeremy McKinnon of A Day To Remember (USA) talks Common Courtesy and Soundwave Festival!

I recently had the chance to talk with Jeremy McKinnon about A Day To Remember latest album. Common Courtesy. A record that struggled to see the light of day following a series of lawsuits with their US label Victory Records. Over the course of our chat Jeremy talks with a sense of resolve about why the album came out, how important the support of their Australian fans have been and looks at the future of A Day to Remember and looks back at where they've come from.

the AU interview: Jeremy DePoyster of The Devil Wears Prada (Ohio)

Before they come to Australia with A Day To Remember, Ohio's The Devil Wears Prada have some European touring to get out of the way first. Before patchy European phone reception cut the interview short, Jeremy DePoyster chats with me as the band drives through Germany about the upcoming Australian tour, the band's new record and performing with A Day To Remember.

The Devil Wears Prada and Dream On Dreamer added to the national A Day To Remember tour!

Live Review: Soundwave Festival - RNA Showgrounds, Brisbane (25.02.12)

The best laid plans of mice, men, and now apparently music reviewers often go awry. Although I had planned to catch Pennsylvanian rockers CKY and French metal act Gojira, traffic snarls and the sheer crowd size of Soundwave 2012 prevent me from doing so. Well, I end up catching about ten seconds of Gojira after a short sprint; I won’t lie, it was a pretty fantastic ten seconds.

Live Review: A Day to Remember + The Used + You Me At Six - UNSW Roundhouse (28.02.12)

For some (including me) this would be the third night backing up on Soundwave goodness, but people showed no signs of slowing down just yet. At 7pm, the line outside the Roundhouse curled around the building and out of view; fans eager to get in early to catch this epic three-band line up from the start.
