INTERVIEW (audio): Andrew Hunt of Buffalo Summer on the Pasty Smash!

treatmentFor those of us who have been to see The Treatment on their ‘Second Bite’ tour, you would have also seen the two support bands, Buffalo Summer and Massive, fill the venues with their own unique brand of rock.

buffalosummer1Buffalo Summer, who have not long been out of the recording studio (their second album is down and waiting to be mixed), have been hard at it since I last saw them on the Lords Of The Riff tour. Tours and support for Skid Row and Buckcherry have been amongst the highlights for the band in 2014.

We caught up with Andrew Hunt (Lead Vocal) at The Waterfront Studio in Norwich to discuss what the band’s been up to, how the current tour has been going with The Treatment and Aussie rockers Massive.

INTERVIEW (audio): Matt and Dhani of The Treatment

If there was ever a band that mixed youthful exuberance with kiss-ass rock ‘n’ roll riffage, then The Treatment have certainly nailed it. With two albums well and truly under their belts, numerous tours, including big name support slots such as Aerosmith, Kiss, Thin Lizzy, Steel Panther, Alice Cooper and Motley Crue, they’ve watched, listened and learned from the very best…and boy, have they picked up on it all!

treatmentThe ‘Second Bite’ tour – promoting their stunning 2014 ‘Running With The Dogs’ album – is now drawing to a close. It’s been a tour which has seen this young band draw upon all their experiences; delivering unquestionably their most polished performances to date.

We sat down with Matt Jones (vocals) and Dhani Mansworth (drums) backstage at The Waterfront Studios in Norwich and talked about the album, their new ‘look’ and their latest video release ‘The Outlaw’.

INTERVIEW (audio): Big up the Aussie Massive!

Aussie rock ‘n’ roll band Massive have created a bit of a buzz over the past 12 months. Notwithstanding the boost in publicity from glossy music press ‘Full Throttle’ album giveaways and the high-rotation offered by rock radio stations, Massive recently landed themselves a tour slot with UK rockers The Treatment on the ‘Second Bite’ tour along with Buffalo Summer (also tour support) and they’ve been getting rave reviews.

Jarrod and Brad pondering…

When the tour with The Treatment ends, they head over to Europe supporting Earache Records labelmates Blackberry Smoke.

Being their first experience of touring the UK and Europe (it won’t be their last), we spoke with Brad Marr (Lead vocal/Rhythm guitar) and Jarrod Medwin (Drums) to find out their thoughts on the crowd’s response to their full throttle (pun intended), no-holds-barred, fist-in-the-face shows.

We began by the boys talking about breakfast…!

INTERVIEW: Hear Nate Bergman of Lionize giving us his thoughts ahead of LOTR2

lionize_logo

You would have had to have been hiding under a very large stone not to have heard that ‘Lords Of The Riff 2′ is soon to bring three of the best up and coming bands together for a tour of the UK.

LOTR 2 begins next month, November 2014, taking in Leeds, Glasgow, Liverpool, Newcastle, Nottingham, Manchester, Colchester, Birmingham, Bristol, Stoke and London.

LOTR2

Kyng, Anti-Mortem and Lionize have each worked on their craft for a good number of years – since the mid-to-late noughties – steadily growing their fan-base through the writing of great sounding music and seemingly tireless touring.

Lionize came over to the UK for the very first time earlier this year as tour support for fellow Weathermaker lablemates Clutch. The band complemented the headline act admirably, to the extent that the buzz heard coming out of the gigs was not just about Clutch, but Lionize too.

We caught up with Nate Bergman (Guitar/Vocals) to see how the band felt about returning to the UK.

The band’s lead single from the opus, ‘The Devil In I’ has just been added to the Radio 1 Playlist and Slipknot‘s gradual creep on world domination has begun once more.  Their visually arresting, chaotic, spectacular shows often become the stuff of legend, so with all new masks and production, these events are essential!  Check out the band’s new look in their chilling video for ‘The Devil In I':

The multi-platinum, Grammy-Award-winning, masked beast that is SLIPKNOT is set to make a long awaited return to UK arenas in January 2015 with their ‘Prepare For Hell’ tour.
Slipknot’s frontman Corey Taylor muses; “The UK has always been very special for us.  In a lot of ways, it’s where this insanity began.  So, for this tour, we decided to try and hit as many places as we could – not only England, but Scotland and Wales as well.  Technically Ireland is Europe, but we’re going there too.  We’re coming back for the people who started this for us: that would be YOU.  Prepare yourselves… Hell is coming.”

INTERVIEW: Reagan Browne returns to England for a mini tour in October. We caught up for a chat.

RB

‘Gypsy Woman’s Got The Groove’ is the new single from Texas born Reagan Browne. We played the song on the show last week and it produced one of the most positive reactions to a new song we’ve seen in a while. Not only does it feature Reagan in top vocal form, the feel-good hooks lead into polished solo work from guest guitarist Eric Johnson.

Reagan Browne returns to England in October for a short run of dates:

 

October 16th at The Roadhouse, Birmingham
October 17th at The Carlisle, Hastings (Free entry)
October 18th at Leo’s Red Lion, Gravesend
October 19th at Fiddler’s Elbow, Camden Town, London

Always up for a bit of banter, we caught up with Reagan to talk about working with Eric Johnson, Phil X, Billy Sheehan and Marty Friedman. We also discussed the back story to the new single, as well as the touring band members, but we began by first talking about the sweltering heat LA residents have been experiencing recently.
