INTERVIEW (audio): Eddie Veliz of Kyng talks monster riffage

151_Kyng_preview

We caught up with Eddie Veliz of LA based riff monsters Kyng ahead of their ‘Lords Of The Riff 2′ UK tour with Lionize and, following Anti-Mortem’s announcement last week that they were disbanding, Greek rockers Planet Of Zeus.

LOTR2 - 2Eddie was in fine form and we got to hear just how busy the band have been in 2014, having released the headbangingly brilliant ‘Burn The Serum’, the follow up album to ‘Trampled Sun’.

Lords Of The Riff 2 takes off in Leeds at The Key Club on November 5th for an 11 date tour of the UK. For a measly £10, this promises to be the best value gig of the year. Three bands that will be laying it down thick and heavy…pure riffage all the way, and as Eddie says, “(We’re gonna) throw down some big balls with heavy roots and some massive riffs”.

What’s not to like?!

INTERVIEW (audio): Blackberry Smoke’s Brit Turner

‘Leave A Scar – Live’ a double album and DVD released this year, gave us a taste of what can be expected at a Blackberry Smoke gig. Their recent UK tour, saw them sell out venues with a greater capacity on those they’ve played before. With the backing of UK based record label that has on its roster the likes of Rival Sons and The Temperance Movement, the music media’s undiminished appetite and the band’s down-to-earth appeal with fans, things are heading in the right direction for the band.

I see many parallels between Blackberry Smoke’s continuing rise and that of Southern Rock bands such as Blackfoot and Molly Hatchet had when they came over to these shores in the late Seventies and early Eighties on the back of some terrific albums, plying their trade the length and breadth of the UK to the delight of rock fans.

Brit Turner BBSWith Blackberry Smoke, there seems a renewed interest for a southern-rock band that has also drawn upon life’s experiences when penning songs, making them easy to engage and connect with; looking forward to Blackberry Smoke’s new studio album.

We sat down with Blackberry Smoke’s drummer, Brit Turner, and heard what all of this has meant to the band. It’s evidently clear, when you listen to what Brit has to say, that this tour has cemented the relationship the band has with us Brits (no pun intended).

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.

 

pasty smashOf course, we had to ask Andrew about the #PastySmash! The Facebook video can be viewed here.

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.

BVB have worked tirelessly over the recent years, clocking up countless world tours, supported the likes of A7X, Slash, Motley Crue and Asking Alexandria, festivals such as Warped Tour, Download and Rock AM Ring, album sales, fans (over 4 MILLION on Facebook) and awards (multiple Kerrang Magazine and Revolver Golden God Awards).
