My Ticket Home – unReal (, )
13th October 2017 -

With the release of 2013’s Strangers Only, Ohio quartet My Ticket Home propelled themselves from metalcore obscurity to one of the key bands in the emerging “nu metalcore” scene.

Nothing More – The Stories We Tell Ourselves (, , , )
26th September 2017 -

Bad Sign – Live & Learn (, , , )
7th August 2017 -

I haven’t felt like writing the last few weeks since the death of Chester Bennington, or listening to any new music. I’ve virtually done nothing in terms of listening but blasted Linkin Park’s discography on endless repeat for over a fortnight. Slowly, my desire to listen to other things has been returning, and that is partly done to the excellent… Read More »
