Lady Jane's Revenge Online _RingMaster ReviewPromo Shot_RingMaster Review

Welcoming favourable comparisons to Mallory Knox, Incubus, Alkaline Trio and Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Lady Jane’s Revenge unleash a fusillade of mighty riffs, a powerful rhythm section, and hooky vocal lines that burrow deep into your senses. The energetic alternative rockers release their debut EP ‘1554’ on Friday 26th February through all stores.

Hailing from the beautifully picturesque county of Cornwall, Lady Jane’s Revenge keenly embrace life amongst nature where the steady surf fuels the band with an exuberant positivity which is richly displayed throughout the music. Born at the start of 2015 and featuring Billy Crook (Vocals), Sam Kent (Guitar), James Coffey (Bass) and Ash Jenkin (Drums), the band soon gelled and bonded. Although the four-piece enjoy the free-spirited rocker lifestyle now, the members of the band have had far from a pampered upbringing, chocking up between them a varied array of jobs such as: mechanic, building labourer, an Apple computer specialist, and walking the long halls of Bristol Hospital as a porter.

In terms of touring, the downside of living life in Cornwall are the vast distances between shows. However, LJR have managed to overcome this predicament and have extensively gigged throughout the South West, playing with the likes of ‘Shatter Effect’ along the way. They have also picked up strong radio support including rotation on BBC Cornwall.

It’s now time for the band to break out to the rest of the UK and beyond. The quartet have the perfect bait in the shape of their enthralling debut EP ‘1554’ which delivers six cuts of energetic alt-rock, from the groove and contagious guile of ‘Floodgates’, to the Alkaline Trio-esque ‘The Kid Within’, and the hugely uplifting ‘PMA’, which nods in the direction of RHCP/Incubus. This is a band with a debut record that needs to be heard. With shows planned throughout the winter, including supporting ‘More Than Most’ and ‘Three Times Over’ on Friday, December 4th at the well renowned ‘The Islington Garage’, 2016 promises to be a killer year for the band.

POPULAR FRENCH POP PUNK OUTFIT, THE SHAPERS RELEASE NEW EP!

European trio ‘The Shapers’ set loose their spanking new EP ‘Reckless Youth’, through all digital platforms on Friday 26th February. Look out too as the gritty rockers prepare to tour the UK in 2016

The Shapers Online Promo Shot_RingMaster Review

Currently residing in Toulouse, France, Euro punk rockers ‘The Shapers’ delectably embrace the garage rock vibes of ‘The Hives’ and ‘Nirvana’, merged with the early urgent delivery of ‘Green Day’ and ‘A Day To Remember’. Born in 2009 and consisting of Anthony Cauvin (Lead Vocals/Guitar), Raphaël Bouissière (Bass/Backing Vocals), and Benoit Holin (Drums), this power trio have certainly undertaken the punk rock DIY ethos. With a keen zest for touring and adventure, the band headed out to China and Indonesia in 2011 to play a series of highly successful shows, and because of the response and support, the threesome returned the following year and again last year. In 2013, The Shapers won a ‘Best up-and-coming band’ competition, lapping up a prize to tour throughout North America where the alt-punks shared stages with punk rock legends NOFX and Pennywise. Last year, the band again toured, this time in Thailand. The three piece were overwhelmed with responses and will tour South East Asia again next year.

As well as a hearty diet for touring across the far reaches of the world, the band have also extensively played throughout France, and are currently planning their attack on the UK. Blessed with a CV that boosts support shows with The Flatliners, NOFX, Silverstein, Pennywise, Face To Face, and Dream on Dreamer, and critical acclaim for 2012’s debut album ‘Everybody Needs To Have A Dream’, which picked up rampant praise across the board, the band show no signs of letting up.

The Shapers dropped their video single “Can’t Forget”, directed by Mayol (media director of Vans, who has worked with successful bands like the Foo Fighters, among many others) this summer. The single is the opening track from the band’s hotly anticipated new EP ‘Reckless Youth’, which is unleashed this February. With six cuts of scuzzy punk, the record is a true calling to all fans of Punk in its varied forms. Drawing from the early vigour of Blink 182 and the raw power of Nirvana, marinated with a hint of The Subways, this EP is destined to break the band to the UK.

UK POP PUNKERS, ON THE OPEN ROAD, UNVEIL NEW VIDEO!

Brit pop punk crew ‘On The Open Road’ have dropped their killer new video ‘Rain Days’ on, lifted from their forthcoming new EP ‘Storyteller’, out on Friday 26th February.

On The Open Road Online promo shot_RingMaster Review

Finding inspiration from a range of influences, On The Open Road have pulled from legendary punks such as Blink-182 and Sum 41, through to contemporary kings like Chunk! No, Captain Chunk! and A Day To Remember. The industrious crew have broken down the truest essentials of the genre and have produced a signature sound of their own that is punchy, energetic, and without doubt contagious.

Born in 2013 and hailing from Nottinghamshire, On The Open Road started life as a trio with school friends Tom Hawk on lead vocals and guitar, Dan Abey handling bass, and Ollie Green pounding on the drums. The three piece soon put out their debut EP, but it became clear that the band needed another guitarist to really raise their sound to the next level. New found friend Jack Dutton stepped up to fill the void on lead guitar. With a formidable live sound and an extra dimension to their music, the band extensively hit the road and started work on their next record.

The foursome release their new EP ‘Storyteller’ later this month, and it’s bursting with eight tracks of blistering pop punk. The first video single to be released is the anthemic ‘Rainy Days’ , which is a firecracker of a cut, loaded with a refrain that you just can’t shake. With tour dates lined up for the first part of the year, 2016 promises to be a gargantuan year for the band.

ON THE OPEN ROAD LIVE:. FEBRUARY – Saturday 13th – Mansfield (The Intake) – Diamond Days headlining; Friday 19th – Manchester (The Zoo Bar) – Pre-Deadbolt club night show – Six Time Champion headlining. Sunday 26th – Nottingham (Rescue Rooms) – ‘Storyteller’ EP release show – OTOR headlining. MARCH – Saturday 26th – Derby (The Victoria Inn) – Less Than Three Festival – WSTR headlining.
