MISS MAY I

Live Review: Bullet For My Valentine + Cancer Bats + Miss May I - The Hi-Fi (22.02.13)

Friday the 22nd of Februrary saw in the first show of the Bullet for my Valentine world tour, showcasing their latest album Temper Temper, and coinciding with the mighty Soundwave Festival. It was a relatively huge bill as these guys brought with them Cancer Bats and Miss May I, who kicked off the nights' events with a bang!

Parkway Drive + The Wonder Years + Miss May I + Mandalay Victory - Challenge Stadium (27.05.11)

At first glance, The Mix N’ Mash Tour looks like a misprint. Surely pop-punk band The Wonder Years weren’t destined together with hardcore legends Parkway Drive, Miss May I and Confession on one single tour. But as brave as it seemed, the announcement was certainly no mistake, and with You Me at Six originally to join them, they embraced a mixed crowd at Challenge Stadium Friday evening alone as the only band performing that didn’t accompany screaming vocals.

Parkway Drive + Miss May I + The Wonder Years + Confession + The Turning Tide - Hordern Pavilion (20.05.11)

The Mix 'n' Mash tour was a supposedly eclectic proposal of all things "scene", until the two biggest drawcards - You Me At Six and Bleeding Through - deserted the fray to pursue further studio time towards their respective albums-in-the-works. While it may've been a blow to the spirit of the tour, it wasn't critical - after all, Parkway Drive have already packed Hordern Pavilion to it's rafters once before.

Compliation Album: Punk Goes Pop III (2010 LP)

I don't particularly understand the driving point of these constant, seemingly ubiquitous 'Punk Goes Pop' releases. They don't do these mash-up crossovers with many other genres, do they? I am yet to see 'Tekkers goes Grindcore 6' or 'Baroque goes Drone 4'.
