Due to hit our shores real soon is Sweden's latest hardcore musical export in that of ANCHOR, who are continuing the tradition of flying the flag for the vegan / straight edge movement. Guitarist Ulf Hammarkarr took time out to chat about life in Sweden, touring with TRIAL and what they are looking forward to in Australia.

Set to hit our shores for the third time in a four year period is LA DISPUTE from Michigan, USA. Frontman, Jordan Dreyer was kind enough to find time for a chat about the band's love affair with our fine country.

There is probably no bigger buzz band around at the moment than OFF! Featuring the legendary Circle Jerks / Black Flag frontman Keith Morris on vocals, one can't but be reminded of the classic Flag EP "Nervous Breakdown" Ep when they listen to OFF! Guitarist Dimitri Coats talks about the inner workings of the band ahead of their first Australian tour in December.

smlMindsnare-1

Mindsnare team up with Cleveland legends, Ringworm for what promises to be an unforgettable tour. We caught up with Mindsnare singer Matt Maunder on the eve of the tour.
