smlBacktrack2Backtrack will return to Australia in early 2014 almost two years to the day that the band first toured the country. This time around the band will be showcasing new album "Lost In Life" due out on Bridge 9 the week before they arrive in the country. Jasper Caverly caught up with guitarist Ricky Singh.

smIExistCanberrans, I EXIST are set to release their third full length album "From Darkness" today through Resist Records. We caught up with guitarist, Aaron Osbourne for the lowdown on the new album and a chat about their recent European tour.

sml2013Welcome to our annual end of year wrap up, as we celebrate 2013, the year that was. Hard to believe another year has slipped by so fast. 2013 was a busy year in the realms of punk/hardcore. A lot of established bands put out new releases and a lot of bands reunited, some nobly and some well... let's just say they reunited. 

smldaylight-bandDaylight will return to Australia in 2013, four years since their debut tour won the hearts of many fans down under. They will bring their grunge laden melodic punk tunes to audiences to show off their debut album “Jar”. Jasper Caverly caught up with vocalist/guitarist Taylor Madison.

smleh8Sydney’s Endless Heights are aset to release their debut album, New Bloom on the 15th November just in time for their national tour alongside US band Daylight. Jasper Caverly caught up with frontman Joel Martorana for a chat.

smlMindsnare20Yr_2_of_3Originally for their 20 year anniversary I planned on doing a four part interview with each of the members of Mindsnare. I figured I'd aim questions that covered 5 years of the band's existence to them indiviually. Then when I thought about it, I realised that perhaps rather than having them rehash their past, we should all really be thanking Mindsnare for their contribution to the Australian hardcore scene instead. 

Gasman2Over the past ten years, Andy Murphy aka Blood Stains has been coming up with some incredible designs for Mindsnare. He is the mastermind behind the iconic Gas Man artwork that has really helped define the band over the past decade.

smlyot_tourThe Youth of Today tour has sadly come to an end, finishing up with two shows in Sydney for Hardcore 2013. Read the full wrap up of the whole tour along with some stories that were passed on from Ray Cappo, Porcell and Ken Olden. Three hardcore legends of the highest degree.

smlhc13With Hardcore 2013 now just weeks away we bring you the final of four installments that focus on the local Australian bands who will be gracing the stage over the two day period.

smlRecord-Store-Day-2013This coming Saturday April 20th, is RECORD STORE DAY. A celebration of perhaps the greatest retail bricks and mortar stores you can come across, the independent record store.
