Having just completed a successful run of dates across Eastern Europe on the “Will To Power International Tour”, extreme metal giants ARCH ENEMY are back with another ripping single from their recently released album, “Will To Power”, with the music video single for “The Race”.

Founding member Michael Amott commented: “This was actually the last song written for the ‘Will To Power’ album. Listening through all the material we had up to that point we agreed that the album needed one more song that would be a relentless and fast paced counterpoint to some of the more epic compositions we already had. We sent Alissa the music and she came up with a thought provoking set of lyrics with an intense vocal arrangement that complemented the music perfectly. We’ve been having a blast playing this song on the current tour and we had our video director Patric Ullaeus come out to capture the mayhem at our recent show in Helsinki, Finland… Enjoy ‘The Race’!”

ARCH ENEMY will bring their “utterly enchanting melodies and savage riffs” (Metal Injection), to audiences across North America later this month as they join Trivium for a co-headlining tour from October 27 to December 6 featuring support from While She Sleeps and Fit For An Autopsy.

Firmly believed by all involved to be the last ever Cornbury Festival, July 2017’s

Fabulous Finale was a huge success with sell-out crowds enjoying a superb, sunny
weekend in the company of Bryan Adams, Jools Holland and the Kaiser Chiefs.
Organiser Hugh Phillimore quoted after the glorious weekend: ’We all know that a
party is only as good as its guests and thanks to everyone we had a truly fantastic
and memorable weekend’

Locals, regulars and even new comers not wanting to miss out on their last chance
to enjoy this popular ‘festival come celebrity village fete’ turned out in force this
Summer to enjoy the magical, friendly experience that is Cornbury. Dismayed by the
potential of a gap in their festival calendars, a wave of support ensued as the
Oxfordshire media and public alike cajoled the events founder and organiser Hugh
Phillimore, not to give up the challenge after 14 years, but to continue with their
support, to provide this unique weekend, right in the midst of The Cotswolds,
affectionately known as ‘Poshstock’ and perfectly suited to its 20,000+ fans.

‘So many people have sent messages since July – our audience love the event and
want it to keep going. Literally hundreds of our supporters, together with bands,
agents, managers, sponsors and media partners telling me I shouldn’t let such a
jewel in the festival calendar end’ says Hugh. ‘The festival market has become a
tough playing field over the last few years and very saturated, which lead partly to
my decision to leave whilst we were on a high, however the response has been so
overwhelming with support for Cornbury to remain, that it has caused a rethink on
my part and I can confirm that we have decided to listen to public opinion and return
next year as strong as ever in July 2018, If people still want us here, in a way It
would be foolish to stop now and 15 years does give us another great reason to

The over-riding message that finally convinced Hugh, simply pointed out that the
festival was not his but belonged to its audience who had supported the event over
the 14 years. ‘I’ve been humbled by the depth of feeling for this event and I now feel
that I should keep Cornbury going as a worthwhile community event because it
contributes to the local economy and seems to spread quite a lot of joy’ says Hugh.

Local schools and charities have benefitted from fundraising at Cornbury over its 14
year history. ‘We’ve had an amazing response from the many festival-goers at
Cornbury and are very excited that we can do it all again 2018’ says Banbury’s Dogs
For Good Director Lucy Vincent.

The 15th Cornbury Festival, with the same great format will be staged at Great
Tew Park from July 13th to 15th 2018. Further details to follow soon.







Gabrielle Aplin has celebrated the release of her acclaimed new EP Avalon by announcing a very special stripped down show to take place in London’s beautiful Union Chapel on December 7th.

To mark the announcement she has revealed a stunning lyric video for brand new song ‘Say Nothing’. Taken from her new Avalon EP, released last Friday, the song is a gorgeous slice of electro-pop.

Regarding ‘Say Nothing’, Gabrielle says, “Say Nothing is a song I had for a while before finishing it with my friend and co-writer Nick. It’s about being stuck between two friends and that frustration you feel when you seem to be the only one reacting.”

The new song follows the release of lead single ‘Waking Up Slow’, which has proved a big radio hit. The single was featured as Radio 1’s ‘Record Of The Week’ and has been added to the Radio 2 playlist. The song has clocked up well over 1.7 MILLION plays on Spotify and Gabrielle recently revealed a stunning acoustic version of the track, which has received over 6.5 MILLION plays on Facebook alone.

The singer has also received great support from press with the likes of The Sun, Metro, Sunday Times, The Observer and many more besides all featuring the singer and raving about her new music.

Gabrielle will be completing a headline tour of the UK through October in support of the EP, with all dates now completely sold out. The six-date tour starts at Glasgow’s Oran Mor on October 19th and finishes at ULU, London on October 26th.

“Nuclear Alchemy” is the sound of an eager beast let loose from its cage at last. A song of violent fire, impending doom and of necks cracking in ecstacy. A dissolving injection of power and force into the coagulated veins of Black Metal and a first glimpse into the abyss that shall be opened in the beginning of 2018. Meanwhile, stand by for conflagration.” // WATAIN, October 2nd, 2017

Ex-members of The Defiled, Amen, No Devotion and The Ataris come together to announce new band

Debut Single ‘Burn Forever’ Out Now

Ex-The Defiled frontman Lee Villain unites with fellow Brit Luke Johnson (Amen, No Devotion, Beat Union), together with Steve Lucarelli (The Ataris) and Jaxon Moore to form new band LOWLIVES.

The band’s debut single ‘Burn Forever’ is available now via all streaming sites, after last night being premiered on the BBC Radio One Rock Show.

Check out “Burn Forever” on YouTube:

“Burn Forever was one of the first songs written,” states Lee Villain. “It kinda sets the tone for what we are about. Pop hooks, heavy drums, and lots of guitar noise. This band has been in the works for a long time now and I’m stoked to finally show people what we’ve been working on.”

“I wanted to write something that felt real, I wanted to work with someone where the creative relationship had chemistry,” writes Luke Johnson. “I wanted to make a band with the intention of being free and agnostic of the boundaries that define popular music genres. This is the band that makes everything I’ve ever done before it less relevant by comparison.”

LOWLIVES play their debut show at the Troubador in Los Angeles on Oct 20th supporting Moose Blood, before heading to the studio to finish recording their full length album in November with producer Beau Burchell (The Bronx, Moose Blood, Saosin).

Acclaimed Bristol-based four piece Firewoodisland have released their brand new single ‘Dearest Brother’, the first taste of the band’s forthcoming debut album due early 2018.
‘Dearest Brother’ is a beautiful folk-pop anthem, leading with delicate guitars before breaking into the huge sky-high choruses and souring harmonies – a sound they’ve christened ‘mountain pop’. The result is reminiscent of the likes of Fleet Foxes, Of Monsters & Men and Imagine Dragons.
Regarding the single the band says, “‘Dearest Brother’ is a song of compassion and tough love. It’s about watching friends getting hurt by bad decisions, letting them know that you’re there for them and about taking the brunt – as long as they do something to help themselves.”
The quartet, composed of multi-instrumentalists Stian Vedoy, Abi Eleri, Dylan Jones and Steve Allen, have clocked up praise from the likes of Q Magazine, Clash, The 405 and many more with the release of their 2014 debut EP lld and the following Dome EP last year. The band have also received great radio support from the likes of Radio 1, BBC 6Music, BBC Introducing, Amazing Radio and more.
Firewoodisland are playing a three-date UK tour in support of ‘Dearest Brother’ throughout October. They will play London’s Servant Jazz Quarters on October 16th, the Exchange, Bristol on October 21st and finish at The Nest, Bath on October 28th. Tickets are available through Music Glue.
“They sound festival-sized, delivering uplifting anthems that would fit as comfortably on the radio as around the campfire” – Q
“The band’s songwriting has an assured, emotive feel” – Clash
“Sweet, wonderful, perceptive songwriting” – BBC Introducing
