Canterbury are no longer a band. This was what their last ever show looked like. We wrote some words about the evening, too.
Nothing much matters in August other than Reading & Leeds Festivals, right? This year we really were spoilt for choice as Blink-182, You Me At Six, A Day To Remember, Sleeping With Sirens and so many more GREAT rock bands brought the festival back to its roots. Plus there was the small matter of a couple of VERY special warm-up shows from Sleeping With Sirens and Gerard Way...
Rubber chickens. Beer (lots of beer). Ludicrous live action and a bit of footy. Enter Shikari's recent trip to Japan had it all.
These wonderful shots were taken by Tom Martin.
July had everything: a Warped Tour surprise (in the shape of Linkin Park turning up and playing with every band ever), a MONUMENTAL party with Fall Out Boy and Paramore in New York, plus there was the small matter of Sonisphere...
We've waited SO long to see Fightstar back in action. Was their live return to London worth the wait? You'll have to wait for the next issue of Rock Sound to read our review, but here's what the whole thing looked like.

June was pretty much all about Download. Bring Me The Horizon tore a hole in the time-space continuum, Fall Out Boy brought the singalongs, While She Sleeps planted their flag and Linkin Park played 'Hybrid Theory'. We did manage to squeeze a few other shows in too, mind.
Friday nights are made for moshing, and last night, Camden did a whoooole lot of that. A bit of crowdsurfing too, now you mention it. All photos by Ben Gibson for Rock Sound.
May was a BIG month: there was Slam Dunk Festival, there was Groezrock, Twin Atlantic played in a pub and we got to hang out with the Lovely Man that is Brendon Urie. Like we said: BIG MONTH!
Foo Fighters have been to pretty much every corner of the earth since the release of 'Sonic Highways', and last night saw them stopping over in Cape Town, South Africa. To play to 50,000 people. No biggie.
Festival season kicks off earlier and earlier every year, and with Hit The Deck and Impericon Festivals making early doors in April, this year was no different. Plus, there was the small matter of that You Me At Six show...
The Rock Sound Christmas Ball took over Camden's Koko last night. Decade brought the festive jumpers, Lonely The Brave brought the festive feels, and Lower Than Atlantis brought the snow. Alright, it wasn't actual snow but close enough! Here's what went down at our Xmas shindig.
Bring Me The Horizon. Issues. Young Guns. Sleepwave. WEM-BER-LEE.
What's the saying about March? Go to loads of gigs, have a proper mosh and you'll spend of the rest of the year on a high? Something like that, anyway. Here's what we got up to.
