Canada's Propagandhi have been one of punk rocks most politically out-spoken bands for well over two decades now. Their last album, 2012's 'Failed States' - while not quite as specific as previous releases - was just as dynamic, aggressive, and as pissed-off as anything else the band has done in their career. With their headlining tour hitting our shores this May/June, Killyourstereo.com spoke with drummer and co-founding member, Jord Samolesky.
With their debut album, 'I Hope Their Praying For Me' set for release later this month, we caught up with alternative Melbourne rockers Postblue to talk about the band, the album and the local scene.
Prepared Like a Bride are on a blazing trail to success. Having already gained a significant following, the Queensland band's debut album, 'Overcomer' is initially being met with solid reviews and praise. The group's upcoming Australian tour will only prove just as well-received. We spoke with lead singer, Ryan Bowles to discuss the album and the upcoming tour.
There aren't many bands in the world that evolve like Panic! At The Disco. With every release, they craft their sound into a completely new beast, and the band's latest effort, 'Too Weird To Live, Too Rare To Die,' is no exception. The group will be coming down under for Soundwave next month, and front man Brendon Urie took the time out to chat to us ahead of the visit.
Progressive metallers Periphery have been keeping busy over the past year. Along with constant touring (including a spot on Soundwave 2013), the band have been sporadically working on third full-length album 'Juggernaut' as well as writing and recording the experimental 'Clear' - in which each member composed and directed their own song. Headed back to Australia later this month with Animals As Leaders, we chat with vocalist Spencer Sotelo to get the lowdown on everything.
Protest The Hero are one of the most respected bands in modern metal. With a versatile sound, Protest The Hero always manage to impress, and they're back with their latest offering, Volition. Lead singer Rody Walker recently took some time to chat with us about the album, anti-pitbull laws, and the possibility of a return to Australia.
These guys really don't need any introduction. Having released four studio albums and two DVD's, multiple Australian top 10 chart debuts, and having toured the world who knows how many times by now, Parkway Drive are arguably the biggest active band in metalcore. With the band approaching their 10th anniversary, front man and all around good guy Winston McCall took time out to chat with Killyourstereo.com about the milestone.
Psycroptic are one of Australian metal’s elite. Heavy, respectable and consistent, the Tassie boys have enjoyed local and international success. Ahead of their upcoming East Coast tour with King Parrot, Killyourstereo.com sits down with drummer Dave Haley to get the lowdown from the band.
Byron Bay's Postblue are a band fast on the rise. Since forming earlier this year, the band has gone on to play with the likes of Basement, The Swellers and Hopeless, as well as releasing their new EP "Lap Year". The EP was liked so much by Rest Assured Records that they decided they wanted to release it on vinyl, after only one listen. In January, the band will be doing a run of East Coast dates with Newcastle's Distance, and we caught up with the band's vocalist and guitarist Riley McEvoy to discuss the new EP and the tour.
Pour Habit are one of Fat Wreck Chords most exciting bands to play under their banner in recent years. Hailing from Long Beach and Compton, their 2007 album 'Suticide' (re-released in 2009) is a powerhouse of high energy skate punk. Following up with 'Got Your Back' in 2011, the boys have been touring hard and are once again cmoing to grace our shores with their highly rated live show. They'll be playing alongside Australian punk stalwarts Hightime and coastal fun merchants Totally Unicorn. We caught up with drummer Colin Walsh about everything happening in the world of Pour Habit.
