Papa Roach's Jacoby Shaddix Discusses New Albums, 18 Years Of Papa Roach & Cooking (Interview)

When you hear the name Papa Roach, it’s almost a guarantee that at least one song of theirs will spring to mind. Forming in 1993, the band have had the best part of two decades to work towards the point at which they currently sit: headlining shows worldwide, a huge, strong fan base behind them and a repertoire of hits under their belt.

Natalie McCool

Stereoboard Talks To Natalie McCool About New EP 'Black Sun' & Future Plans (Interview)

The charts seem to be awash with female singer-songwriters at the moment. You can't seem to turn the radio on, pick up a paper or look online without seeing mentions of Adele, Ellie Goulding, Laura Marling and the like. With the growing success of these artists, is there room for anymore? Well with the talent, passion and drive that Natalie McCool has, she's certainly got a damn good chance of adding herself to that list!

Stereoboard Speaks To The Pattern Theory About Recording Their New Album, Touring & More (Interview)

With the imminent release of the debut album and a full on tour of Europe on the horizon, Stereoboard were somewhat fortunate to catch up with Carl Schilde and James Yates of The Pattern Theory. The band, formed in Leeds but now based in Berlin have been busy for the last few months finishing the record and practicing for the tour but found time to explain why the album was recorded in a disused office block, the current transition within the music industry and the interesting idea of a concert for 12 mobile subwoofers.

Born on the Isle of Lewis, singer-songwriter Colin MacLeod, aka The Boy Who Trapped the Sun, has been gaining a lot of acclaim for his debut album 'Fireplace'. He returned for some rescheduled shows this April, starting at King Tuts in Glasgow. Stereoboard were sadly unable to attend the show, but were still able to ask Colin a few questions via e-mail after the gig, and received some interesting answers on the Lewis music scene and the music industry in general.

Thursday

Geoff Rickly of Thursday talks to Stereoboard about New Album ‘No Devolucion’ (Interview)

“It feels like more of an English record than anything we’ve done before,” says Thursday vocalist Geoff Rickly, a few hours before the band’s performance at Millennium Music Hall in Cardiff. Just over a week prior to this latest string of UK dates, the New Jersey post-hardcore sextet unleashed their sixth album No Devolucion on the world. As fans and critics have since discovered, the band’s newest effort represents somewhat of a diversion from their previous work. However, as Geoff goes on to explain, this new direction has proved to be a pleasantly surprising release. “We’ve never had such positive reviews. It’s really nice that people seem to get the record right away.”

Giants

Stereoboard Speaks To Heath Hospodarsky & James Lyle Of Giants To Talk About The New EP (Interview)

Initially formed in 2005 in Americas mid west, post rock outfit Giants have never relented in doing things their way. Their self titled first EP recorded on a shoestring in Cedar Falls, Iowa was originally intended to have vocals, but when the band heard the instrumental tracks they felt their music was strong enough on its own merit and left the vocals out. The band hand burned three hundred CD-R’s of the EP and sold out of them after just their first two shows. This was the end of the EP until now.

Treefight For Sunlight

Stereoboard Chat to Danish Newcomers Treefight for Sunlight (Interview)

With the exception of Alphabeat, Junior Senior, the Raveonettes and – dare I even say it? – Aqua, there aren’t too many groups from Denmark that have managed to break their way into the UK music scene in recent years with much in the way of success. There have been even fewer that have managed to do it with a particularly curious-sounding band name. Well, Copenhagen’s Treefight for Sunlight are ready to change all that.

Twenty Twenty

Stereoboard Talk To Twenty Twenty Ahead of UK Tour Supporting The Wanted (Interview)

Twenty Twenty have had a jam-packed 2 years to say the least; the trio hailing from Essex have notched up top ten hits in the Indie Singles and Music DVD charts, toured with mainstream royalty such as The Saturdays, Tinchy Stryder and Scouting for Girls and are now about to release their first mini album entitled ‘Small Talk’ on May 2nd. This level of experience is quite impressive for a group that were only formed at the end of 2009 and signed last year. Tipped to be the next Busted, Twenty Twenty’s brand of rock-kissed pop has already earned them a legion of fans on Facebook that has reached the 53,000 mark. I caught up with them as they begin their latest string of gigs – this time supporting the Brit Award nominated The Wanted on a 16 date tour around the country.

Oh No Oh My are an eclectic four-piece from Austin, Texas, known for their distinct melodies, discordant lyrics and cult online following.

Luckily, Stereoboard got the chance to catch up with the band on their brief visit before they continued on to perform dates in the rest of the UK and at the SXSW festival.

Teddy Thompson

Folk Singer Teddy Thompson on His New Album ‘Bella’ (Interview)

Ask Teddy Thompson for his opinion on present-day British music and you’ll find that he’s sure to give you nothing less than a straight answer. “The current state of mainstream chart music is truly awful.” It’s a fair point. Coming from a background such as his, it must be difficult to be optimistic about popular music when the entire industry appears to be led by money and fame rather than the music itself. Born in London to singer Linda Thompson and former Fairport Convention guitarist Richard Thompson, Teddy was brought up on a diet of ‘50s and ‘60s rock and roll, which gave him his first taste for a life of music. “The main influence my parents had was to expose me to The Everly Brothers and Buddy Holly. That music shaped me.” After gaining an initial interest at home, he continued on his musical journey upon reaching school. “I took guitar lessons at about 11 and then I went off to boarding school at 13. It was a very artistic school named Bedales. Music was a big part of life there.”

Frank Turner

Frank Turner Talks to Stereoboard about His Forthcoming UK Tour and the New Album (Interview)

Anyone familiar with Frank Turner’s work to date would almost certainly agree with the opinion that he is The Rock Music Fan’s Folk Singer. His first three solo albums - ‘Sleep is for the Week’, ‘Love Ire and Song’ and 2009’s ‘Poetry of the Deed’ – were filled with a host of rock-friendly folk and country anthems that embraced an overall punk attitude that has, in recent months, seen him grace the cover of Kerrang and warm-up for Green Day at Wembley Stadium. However, despite his widespread rock appeal, it seems that not everyone was entirely happy with his recent addition to the line-up of the biggest rock festival of them all – Download.

Jon from The Fratellis Speaks to Stereoboard about New Solo Album and Band’s Future (Interview)

“I’m not sure if I’m a band kind of person,” admits Jon Fratelli. “I like playing music with people, but I’m not sure if I’m suited to the personalities and the politics that sometimes go into being in an official band.” It’s been nearly two years since Glaswegian rock trio The Fratellis parted ways and, while the former frontman declines to rule anything out, he confesses that a reunion seems unlikely in the foreseeable future. “I’m a great believer in that life has to keep on moving and that everything has its particular time. We were in that band for four or five years together and that seems like enough to me.”

Stereoboard Speaks To The Xcerts Ahead Of Their December London Barfly Show (Interview)

You used to seem such a cheerful band, what happened? Thomas Heron (Drums): Were we? Lyrically we never were! Murray Macleod (Vocals/Guitar): Yeah, lyrically on the first record that’s not really true. There was always a hopeful message buried deep within the cynicism I felt but that seems to have disappeared of late. MM: Yeah, a lot of stuff happened to me and it would’ve been a completely different record had those things not happened but they did and that’s what shaped the record. It’s kinda strange because we wrote those songs at such a specific time and now looking back its like “I feel ok now”.

We Are Scientists

We Are Scientists Bassist Chris Cain Talks To Stereoboard Following End Of European Tour (Interview)

We Are Scientists are perhaps more renowned for their witty, abstract sense of humour than their music, but despite this, they've still managed to pump out many a catchy indie tune over the last five years. It's hard to dislike someone who understands (and indeed embraces) how ridiculously hipster it is to be in a New York indie band and it's this light-heartedness that's seen them through. They've recently brought out a new album – Barbara – with Razorlight drummer Andy Burrows, and Stereoboard were lucky enough to catch up with bassist Chris Cain at the end of their European Barbarians tour to chat about how the band's developed since their first big hit Nobody Move, Nobody Get Hurt, back in 2006.

Fucked Up

Stereoboard Speaks to Damian Abraham aka Pink Eyes of F*cked Up (Interview)

Since the 2008 release of their second album ‘The Chemistry of Common Life’, Toronto-based punkers F*cked Up have made quite a name for themselves within the alternative rock scene on both sides of the pond. However, this isn’t all down to their conspicuous name or even their recent success at Canada’s prestigious Polaris Music Prize – their equivalent of the Mercury, which F*cked Up walked away with last year. What may actually be to blame are their somewhat extraordinary live performances, as well as the bizarre stunts for which they have become known. These include a 12-hour-long gig in New York and a cover of ‘Do They Know It’s Christmas?’

Mona are a young band from Nashville, Tennessee, a place that most probably wouldn’t associate with an up-and-coming young band. However, don’t be deceived: with their blend of sepia-splashed rock n’ roll, the band are gathering more buzz than a killer Bee kazoo band. In this modern age, the next “big internet sensation” is always just around the corner, but Mona decided to buck the trend. The band generated hype through playing local shows, roaring out their songs night after night until they had over 180,000 views on Myspace without even posting a single song.

The single Tarantula became an instant chart success, slurred as a drunken request in dingy clubs all over the country, and with this the new breakbeat kings were crowned. Known for resurrecting a fading genre, the band rested on anything but their laurels with In Silico (2008), an album which fused guitar spikes with electronic influences into a sound which was easier to digest than their previous effort: it entered into the UK charts at number two, narrowly missing the top spot.
