'Nothing is off limits': Trinity 'The Tuck' Taylor Talks UK Haters Roast - The Shady Tour

Trinity 'The Tuck' Taylor is an Alabama-born, Florida-based drag queen, well known for jointly winning the fourth season of RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars with Monet X Change in 2018, having placed in the final four of season nine just the year before. During the confessional accompanying her intro look for the latter, Trinity promised us she, “can do anything from beautiful to way outside the box”, and she’s stayed true to that ever since.

Black Honey

Underneath the Mask: Inside Black Honey's 'A Fistful of Peaches'

Photo: Jamie Noise Off the back of their triumphant third album ‘A Fistful Of Peaches’, which unleashes a widescreen barrage of cinematic indie sleaze anthems, it’s tempting to reclassify Brighton’s Black Honey as more movement than band. Hell bent on giving a sense of belonging to every outlier in search of connection, it’s a communal and unflinchingly truthful record that looks set to further strengthen the  bond between the group and their devout followers.

Lamb Of God

The 10 Songs We NEED to Hear on Lamb Of God's State Of Unrest Tour

It's been a long time coming, but Lamb Of God are back in the UK for their State Of Unrest tour, which was originally booked for 2021. Of course we all know what's happened over the past three years, and while the Richmond, VA five-piece kept things ticking over with global live streamed shows, nothing quite compares to being in the room with their brand of ferocious and politically-charged metal.

Meet Me At The Altar

Why Couldn't It Be Us?: Meet Me @ the Altar On 'Past // Present // Future' and World Domination

Photo: Jonathan Weiner Téa Campbell can’t help but smile when recalling Meet Me @ the Altar’s stratospheric 2022. “There were so many moments where it was like, ‘Are we awake or are we dreaming?’ When we were kids idolising all these people and listening to this music, we didn’t know that one day it would become such a huge part of our lives,” the multi-instrumentalist says. “It’s insane to think about. We opened for Green Day—who the hell gets to do that?”

Death Pill

'We Are The Voice For Everyone Who Can't Shout So Loud': Introducing Death Pill

Death Pill vocalist and guitarist Mariana Navrotskaya is feeling subdued. She’s based in the Ukrainian capital Kyiv, and on the day of our interview, there’s just been another deadly Russian missile strike. Attacks like these, she says, cast a shadow over her entire day. Midway through the conversation, her shaky internet connection falters, but she returns when she’s been able to get a signal and find a light source.

The Slow Readers Club

Building Back Brighter: The Slow Readers Club Rebound With 'Knowledge Freedom Power'

Photo: Trust A Fox Photography Contrary to fantastical teenage dreams about forming a band and achieving life-changing fame and fortune, for most musicians the reality of their profession is a constant, unglamorous struggle. But even by past tribulations, the last few years have been especially hard on artists operating at a certain level without a financial safety net. Yet, if you had to put your money on one act to battle through such a tumultuous period, The Slow Readers Club would represent a pretty safe wager.

Darker Shades: Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Talk New Album 'Land Of Sleeper'

What do you do to make an impact when the majority of your output is already renowned for melting faces? That’s the question Newcastle noise-smiths Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs were forced to ponder while writing their fourth album, ‘Land Of Sleeper’. The answer they summoned from the void delivers the usual strain of unabashed Sabbath-esque heaviness, but here it’s juxtaposed against more atmospheric, experimental and contemplative moments.

The Subways

Billy Lunn on Myth-Busting With The Subways' 'Uncertain Joys'

Photo: Laura Lewis Rock ‘n’ roll’s outrageous lifestyle has always been something of a dream destination for disenfranchised loners and wannabe rebels. Often seen as the ultimate emancipation from society, idealised perceptions of ‘live fast, die young’ and bullshit notions of eternal youth are seductive for  eager souls who, without even knowing it, are often seeking an escape from a troubled existence. As such, when reality crashes into fantasy, the results can be disastrous.

Narrow Head

Step Into The Light: Narrow Head On Finding Hope Within 'Moments Of Clarity'

Photo: Nate Kahn Time is a funny thing. Sometimes it can pass us by unknowingly, but there are other times when its effects are much more discernible: situations that once felt unsettled can regain clarity, and wounds that once felt raw can begin to heal. This is something that Narrow Head frontman Jacob Duarte came to realise over the past few years.

You Me At Six

Fearless Again: You Me At Six Redefine Their Future By Looking To The Past On 'Truth Decay'

​ There’s a lot to be said for a reset, just ask You Me At Six. When the five-piece hopped on a plane to Thailand in late 2019 to work on their seventh album  ‘SUCKAPUNCH’, frontman Josh Franceschi believed it could be their last. However, over the course of just a few weeks, a lot changed.

White Reaper

Very Us: White Reaper on Sticking to Their Guns with 'Asking For a Ride'

Photo: Jimmy Fontaine We all know cherished cult bands who, after experiencing a little success, immediately abandon their roots. Such acts strive to capitalise on their newfound recognition by heading further down a commercial path that feels all kinds of wrong. Thankfully, White Reaper won’t be joining those misguided souls anytime soon.

Nice Things: Stereoboard's 2023 Gig Guide

​​   It’s all been a bit up and down the last few years (translated: an absolute bloody nightmare), but if all of these exciting shows aren’t evidence that live music is well and truly back, we don’t know what is. Now that things are seemingly a little more stable, it’s been a bit of a mad scramble for everyone and their dog to announce events that have hung in Covid-controlled limbo for some time, so you’d be forgiven for finding it all a bit overwhelming. But take a deep breath and count to three, as we’re here to help with the live events side of your diaries, with a full round-up of the biggest shows for the rest of the year. Can’t help with the excuse for getting out of your mate’s baby shower/cousin’s wedding/nan’s bingo night though, you’re on your own there.

The Darkness

Adding to the Rock Lexicon: Looking Back and to the Future With The Darkness

Ever since they illuminated the beige, post-millennium guitar scene with a fashion-be-damned explosion of vintage glam metal, Carry On-esque humour and Liberace-styled attire, premature obituaries have circled The Darkness. They appeared to be primed for a trip to the printers after the four piece came, saw, conquered and spectacularly imploded, but since reforming over a decade ago they have steadily amassed a catalogue of fine albums that have kept the doom-mongers at bay.

It's All Connected: Volbeat's Rob Caggiano on Doing Something That Feels Important

The American poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow once claimed, “Music is the universal language of mankind.” If we take that aphorism as gospel, then New York native Rob Caggiano is a very fluent linguist indeed. Supremely accomplished in the fine art of rock ‘n’ roll guitar, and able to switch between genres with dexterous ease, his six-string work with Anthrax, The Damned Things and Volbeat has connected with audiences all over the globe.
