Last night I had the fortunate pleasure to be invited to see The Guillemots play an intimate gig in Manchester’s Hard Rock Cafe. With the release of the first of four studio albums this year – Hello Land – that’s correct, you heard right, FOUR ALBUMS, one can only assume they are one of the busiest bands on the scene right now.
After Foo Fighters’ Chris Shiflett artist focus blog from yesterday, it’d be rude not to show you the fantastic video the Foo Fighters have released for ‘Walk’, their latest single from their album ‘Wasting Light. Taking inspiration from the violent drama Falling Down, Dave Grohl reprises Michael Douglas’ character who goes on a feral rampage across Los Angeles after having a bad day. Traits of the Foo’s earlier days are all over this video, think Learn to Fly with a little bit of The Pretender to finish off.
It’s day 3 of our VOX week at Dolphin Music. In this session, Vox headed down to London’s Hammersmith Apollo and caught up with You Me At Six guitarist Max Helyer, to find out how the Vox AC30C2X and the 55-series Vox guitar play their part. It’s fair to say that this last year has been a pretty big one for pop punk band You Me At Six. The Surrey based group have toured Europe, sold out their headline UK tour, released a hit second album and were nominated for not one, but three Kerrang! awards; including Best British Band, Best Album (Hold Me Down) and scooping the coveted Best Single award for Liquid Conference.
