Miles Away have been a staple in the Australian hardcore since since their formation in 2002, touring Australia and the rest of the world countless times, as well as releasing a number of highly regarded records. This year brings up their 10th anniversary as a band, and to celebrate that, the band will be making their way around the country, taking Cruel Hand and The Others along for the ride. We caught up with the band's vocalist Nick Horsnell to discuss the annivesary, the band's upcoming tour, and the possibility for some new material to be released in 2013.
In June of this year, post-hardcore band Make Do And Mend released 'Everything You Ever Loved', their second studio album and follow-up to 2010’s End Measured Mile, to critical acclaim. Kill Your Stereo caught up with drummer Matt Carroll prior to the band’s national Australian tour with Touche Amore, which kicked off recently, to discuss their latest record, along with his hatred for Nickelback, and his thoughts on people saying Make Do And Mend have 'sold out'.
For the past twenty years, Sweden’s Millencolin have skated to worldwide punk rock success. As an Epitaph Records staple, the four piece has released seven studio albums, done countless tours worldwide, held a skate competition in their hometown and even been granted the honour of their own signature Vans shoe. To mark being together for two decades, Millencolin have released a CD/DVD package called “The Melancholy Connection” and held a festival featuring acts like The Hives and Danko Jones. On the morning of the big day, we caught up with lead guitarist Mathias Färm to talk ABBA, polite Japanese punks and secret tour business.
