Will do! I'm looking forward to While She Sleeps new album (Think they were mentioned the other week in the weekly round up) they are getting pretty big here and I've known some of the lads in the band for a few years. Also interested on seeing what Bon Brocos new album will sound like "Actors" is a pretty good song. Might check out the revival tour to see Chuck Ragan as well.

I really hope the WSS album is great. They've been getting a load of abuse online just for being good at what they do.

I cant say Flood Of Red's new track blew me away. I remember a few years ago if you looked at the trilogy of "about to breakthrough bands in Scotland": FOR, Twin Atlantic and The Xcerts, FOR looked like the one that was going to make it by a mile. It's a shame, they seem to have now stagnated a bit and not gone anywhere.

Well done to Fighting With Wire, they are terrific live.

Having heard a few of the new futures songs, I can see why they were dropped. They sound so bland. I can't see them breaking into the charts with anything I've heard so far. Disappointing for a band that had so much promise.

From what I've heard its brilliant you shouldn't be disappointed! Saw one of the lads from the band post a picture on FB of them getting 5 Ks in Kerrang as well.

Flood of Red kind of radically changed their sound where Twin Atlantic and Xcerts refined/matured their sound, I think that's the difference.

I don't get your congratulation to FWW but what have they been up to recently, I saw them back in 2008 a couple of times, and heard a couple of new tracks that didn't really impress me.

I think FOR lost their growing fanbase with the change, and at the same time didnt really gain much either from the change either. If i was being honest, for a band going for 10 years i am surprised they are still going.

I saw Fighting With Wire supporting somebody (forget who) and i thought they were really good live. That is why i am congratulating them.

I haven't read Kerrang in a long time. I lost all respect for them after they said they backed Hawthorne Heights in everything they did when Casey Calvert died, yet in their live and album reviews, they called them a joke quite a few times. It's all crap.

I don't think i've bought it since I was 14, which is 7 years ago, dreadful magazine in general.

I used to put up concert listings on a friends website, so I had a free subscription. I'd never pay for it though.
