Vukovi share new music video and UK headline tour announced

Following their breakthrough debut album, dubbed “one of the year’s best” by Kerrang! Magazine, and a packed-out headline tour across the UK, Vukovi have revealed a thought provoking new video for their single, ‘Weirdo’, and confirmed UK headline tour dates beginning in May, and festival appearances.

“This video is about raising awareness to the victimisation and cultural impact that bullying, and more specifically cyber bullying, has on young people in today’s digital age,” frontwoman Janine Shilstone explains.

“The idea came after chatting to numerous fans at our shows and learning about the hell they go through at school because they like “weird music” or dress differently...

JAWS announce New Single From Electrifying ‘Simplicity’ Album + Headline Tour

Fabled Birmingham dream-rock trio JAWS are set to unfurl an unadulterated anthem of defiance ahead of a string of UK festival appearances and their newly announced 2017 headline tour – a whistle stop jaunt of the UK which sees the band top the totem at dates in Manchester, London and Oxford.

‘Cast’ (released March 20th) is the endmost track to be taken from the band’s widely-lauded 2017 album ‘Simplicity’ – a release laden with melodic hooks and daydream sensibilities – lionised as their most accomplished and realised offering to date.

Aurora – Debut album Faith/Breaker, out October 23

Aurora - Debut album Faith/Breaker, out October 23

Aurora

Culminating two years of work, metalcore Midlanders AURORA will release their debut album, Faith/Breaker, showing everybody what a crossover band can really do.

Containing seven tracks, eight if you get your hands on the physical CD because there is a hidden bonus track, the debut album Faith/Breaker, out on October 23 via In At The Deep End Records, is not the usual child of the Birmingham-based band. Instead of licking metal with its sensual tongue, the boys, now fronted by Rhys Whitehouse, formally of WolveXhys, reach out and grab it by the throat, and choke the living day lights out of it. Faith/Breaker is a much darker sister for AURORA, but it is one that has been welcomed by the five-piece and by their growing nationwide fan base.

Bassist Josh Hammond said the band had b...
