The Dead Freights are influenced by hard rock and disco, grunge and pop, and likely everything in between, too. The result is a delightfully dark, glammed-up dirty disco affair, likely to get entire nightclubs moving after midnight. This Southampton quartet The Dead Freights recently released their new single ‘Fever and the Thunder’. Recorded at Mi7 studios with Daisy Palmer (Feverist, Paloma Faith) and mixed by Josh Ager (Beabadobee) with help from Pete Robertson (The Vaccines), the single comes straight after their previous single and BBC Introducing’s Track of The Week, ‘Stray Dogs’ which received lots of radio support, media coverage. Check out their latest track ‘Fever and the Thunder’. Thank you everyone who has checked it out, shared it and bigged it up to their buds! So stay tuned for some new demos soon and of course another song release. 

The Dead Freights “Fever and the Thunder”

Written by: Charlie James, Robert Franklin, Robby Spencer, Louis Duarte

Produced by: The Dead Freights, Daisy Palmer, Dan Mills, Callum Ryan

Following on from their stunning 2017 debut record ‘Eternity, In Your Arms’, horror punks Creeper have announced that the title of their second album will be ‘Sex, Death & The Infinite Void’ which they describe as a ”new era” for the band.

Dispelling any rumours of a split, the forthcoming record will include their impassioned single ‘Born Cold’. ‘Sex, Death & The Infinite Void’ will be available on CD and purple vinyl, released by Roadrunner Records on May 22nd.

“The real-life time travel that music can achieve is almost supernatural. In a moment you can be transported from a bedroom in the south of England to another dimension entirely. With our latest album, we attempted to perform a similar magic. The concept behind the artwork came to me when I was considering the ways I first discovered music. Both Ian Miles and I have similar stories of discovering our parents’ records. Holding in our hands these battered relics of the past, playing them for the first time and experiencing the magic of them coming to life over the speaker.

This being the case, our album cover attempts to live up to that promise. It would fit in with our parents’ records of the past, you could find it in a dusty attic, blow off the cobwebs, play it at any moment in time and be transported.” – Will Gould.

Southampton born emo revivalists Creeper scared the life out of fans when they hinted that their sold-out show at Koko in 2018 might be their last. In fact, it was just the end of the past as they usher in a new era with the arrival of second album ‘Sex, Death & the Infinite Void’. “The infinite void was literally where we were drifting for some time while making this album. I didn’t know if Creeper was going to come back, I didn’t know if we were over. I was floating through California with the shards of a broken relationship and a band that I’d just broken up on stage that had been my life’s work.” – Will Gould

Is emorock dead? It is a question that we have been able to answer wholeheartedly with ‘no’ since this year. At the beginning of this year there would be the great return of My Chemical Romance, which our good friend corona put a stop to, but fortunately there is a new bond with the abilities of the latter. Creeper is the name and with Sex, Death & The Infinite Void they release the perfect emo-rock record. They do this by telling a story in a quirky way. A story that goes from great “Annabelle” that touch you to the deepest of your heart to solid rockers like “Napalm Girls”. Unlike the debut, the band doesn’t go anywhere too brutally, and that ensures that every song on this second record contains the necessary drama, accessibility and melancholy. The perfect record for the end of the world and let 2020 have been just a bit.

Creeper will be hitting the road during March next year, heading out on a huge tour to promote the new material

The music they produce ranges from the most beautiful and melancholy soundtrack to the loudest of feedback driven post rock. They have certainly mastered the soft/loud dynamic, of bands such as Swans, Mogwai and low”

Southampton’s Burning House have created a sepia-tinted sound that is both pastoral and psychedelic.
Since their formation in 2011, Burning House have been slowly picking up a storm. The glacial arpeggios, the guttural feedback that owe’s much to the cinema of Andrei Tarkovsky, as it does to the likes of Red House Painters and My Bloody Valentine. The music truly takes you on a rollercoaster of emotions which evolves a certain sadness, elation, but also black humour. The sound is also dreamlike recalling moments of our youth lost to time’s unforgiving fire.

In brief: Fuzzy, chaotic, but always a blast live. Melt Dunes are a Portsmouth/Southampton based noise-rock band.  Melt Dunes’ raucous racket is a violent sensory attack. Brutal aural experimentation has spawned what is the bastardised sound of whirring psychedelia and gutsy garage noise.

WILD FRONT – ” Physics “

Posted: August 27, 2017 in MUSIC
Tags: ,

One of the greatest things about music, for me at least, is its power to change your mood. When I first heard the band Wild Front, I knew they would be one of those bands that I’d like to listen to when I needed a pick me up. I was eagerly awaiting their new EP release and the newly released “Physics” does not disappoint. In fact, it surpassed my expectations…and that isn’t easy do to! This EP is deliciously laced with pop-rock, classic rock, soul (just to name a few), and nuanced to give you a deep, significant ride.

Wild Front are Andy-Joe Connell, Josh Betteridge, Jack Williams, Mike Flowers

Any band able to describe their sound as “like wandering alone in a desolate circus at night with the impending doom of being hunted by psychopathic clowns“, gets our ears.

This then is Melt Dunes, almost eight minutes of malevolent, eerie, tortured psychedelia shot through with a garage savagery that makes Epicaricacy a compelling listen. New Southampton based outfit Melt Dunes are a journey into the darkest netherworld of the psychedelic realm. Brooding guitars and synths, distorted fuzz, and tortured wailing vocals, the quartet are the soundtrack to your worst nightmares. The sonic journey of Melt Dunes is like wandering alone in a desolate circus at night with the impending doom of being hunted by psychopathic clowns, it’s eerily marvellous.

With their debut single ‘Epicaricacy’ released digitally on the 25th May on Strong Island Recordings the home to releases from the likes of Arrows of Love, Boneyards and Gang; Melt Dunes are the latest doom ridden psych meets garage rock act to grace the south-coast label.

You can catch Melt Dunes on the following dates:

14/05/2015 The Great Escape Festival At Bleach

Dead Rabbitts are Thomas Hayes, Neil Atkinson Jr, Suzanne Sims, Paul Seymour, Colin Fox with influences across Chocolate Watchband, Link Wray, Joy Division, The Beatles, Jesus & Marychain, Death In Vegas, Velvet Underground, Primal Scream, My Bloody Valentine, Brian Jonestown Massacre, Stooges, Spiritualized, Spaceman 3, The Doors etc…
