Hunter And The Bear

Hunter and the Bear are one of British rock’s finest exports and following a string of sold out shows earlier this year, they’re back for more of the action. Latest single, ‘Chemical’ sees the band raising the game, launching forward with epic guitar lines and a gritty chorus that hints at what is still to come from the four-piece. Before they set out on tour, they paid us a visit to perform a stripped back version of the new single, check it out below.

Buckcherry + Hoobastank

It’s the tour we didn’t know we needed until now, but Buckcherry teaming up with Hoobastank for a co-headline run is the nostalgic trip we definitely want to be a part of.

Blackberry Smoke

Southern rockers, Blackberry Smoke dropped their sixth album, Find A Light earlier this year, offering yet another genre-bending album that’ll tickle the ears of country lovers just as much as rock fans. It’s slick, steel guitar lines, weighty lyrical content and rambling melodies make it an album you can stomp along to, whilst the chugging choruses leave way for a head bang or two and if that’s not enough to make you come and see Blackberry Smoke live, then we don’t know what is.

A

It doesn’t feel like it’s been 16 years since we were screaming along to ‘Nothing’ by skate-rock band, A, but here we are, about to witness it live as the band prepare to perform the single’s accompanying album, Hi-fi Serious in full. Having somewhat of a revival in 2018, they’ve already toured alongside Hell Is For Heroes and been joined by McFly bassist, Dougie Poynter, so this tour will be the perfect finale for what’s been a joyous year for the band.
