Upcoming Tours

So beyond Reading Festival, there are a bunch of exciting tours happening in the Autumn. Here's a few we're looking forward to especially-

1) Eastpak Antidote tour- Alexisonfire, Anti Flag, Four Year Strong and The Ghost Of A Thousand. I was bummed when Fall Of Troy pulled out of this, but FYS replacing them more than made up for it. Alexis have just released their best album yet, Anti Flag are always fun and TGOAT are probably the most exciting live band in the UK right now. (Keep an eye on the Antidote tour, we're about to announce some amazing news with EBTM'S involvement on this!!)

2) All Time Low/The Audition- Whilst All Time Low's new album wasn't quite the pop punk gem I hoped it would be (weightless is still one of the best singles of recent times), there's no doubt that these guys will nail it live. The Audition are always fun too, and undoubtedly whoever else joins the bill, it's going to be a night of pop punk fun!

3) Bring Me The Horizon/A Day To Remember/August Burns Red- Wow! Now that is a killer bill. BMTH silenced all critics with their Suicide Season album and they have been destroying it live around the globe since. A Day To Remember have to be the scene band of the moment, and August Burns Red are one of the only metal/hardcore bands worth giving a fuck about right now!

4) The Xcerts/This City- dual headline tour from two of the best bands in the UK right now. Check them both out, they're ace!

5) Gallows/Sharks- None more British tour. Gallows are, in my eyes, the best live band on this planet and Sharks are really making a name for themselves. This will be a chaotic little tour that will undoubtedly be full of tension, stories, circle pits and good times. Don't miss out.

Also check out- Fightstar (October), Attack! Attack! (September), Twin Atlantic (Sept/Oct), Funeral For A Friend (Oct), Architects (Oct/Nov), The Used/We Are The Ocean (September).
