Iwrestledabearonce - You Aint No Family video.

If, like me, you like your music to be totally schizo-crazy and heavy as Hell... this is a tune for you. This is the new video from Iwrestledabearonce for their song, 'You Aint No Family,' taken from their debut album 'It's All Happening.' The album drops TOMORROW on Century Media, and I highly reccommend you rush out and buy it, then pull a sicky off work/school to sit at home and listen to it on repeat.

Slam Dunk festival - The Audition.

Anyone who is anyone was in Leeds over the weekend for this years Slam Dunk festival... (okay, I wasn't there due to getting engaged! Yay me!)

Anyway, among what seemed like a million awesome bands on the bill, were The Audition. After whipping the Glamour Kills Stage crowd into a floppy fringed frenzy, singer Danny dived a good 20ft from a balcony into the masses below! Apparently a girl suffered a broken collarbone (I know how ouchy that is!) If you're reading this, broken collarbone girl, we hope you're okay!!!

The guys over at PUNKTASTIC caught it all on video, so take a peek - (go to 1:40.)

Failsafe tour

Our good friends FAILSAFE are hitting the road again in June/July. As well as playing venues all over the UK, they'll also be performing at the FACEDOWN club in London, and at GHOSTFEST in Leeds.

Try and catch them in a town near you!
