Born from the same Toronto post hardcore / noise scene that produced METZ and Burning Love, Greys wear their influences on their sleeve. The spirit of Drive Like Jehu, Jesus Lizard and most noticeably Fugazi is alive and well in their music with the lead track on LP ‘If Anything’ playfully named ‘Guy Picciotto’.
Support comes from female post punk group PRIMETIME and punk hellraisers CLAW MARKS.
Melbourne’s creatively titled KING GIZZARD AND THE LIZARD WIZARD

Time to dig out your red and blue tinted specs. Watch Cellophane
The band play live at The Shacklewell Arms on Monday 10th November.
AZTRAL PLAYNS is a sludge rock project led by Tom Cox of Old Forest and Sam Walsh from Dignan Porch. Opening track On The Aztral Playn draws you in with behemoth, slow motion riffs and no nonsense, skin rumbling drums. As you rock back and forth, just prepared yourself for some serious neck damage at the 4min 17sec mark.
PARAKEET have returned with a brand new EP Pink Noise, which is out now via stalwart indie label Marshall Teller. The band is made up of one part Yuck (Mariko Doi) and one part The History Of Apple Pie ( James Llewelyn Thomas) and the EP is a jaunty pop follow up to their debut Shonon Hearts. Stream it in full below.
AMULET are a recent SEXBEAT love affair. The London based band formed back in 2010 when its current members would meet at various shows and a love for the golden era of Heavy Metal and Hard Rock was shared.
Four years, and a Cut The Crap demo release later and the band are set to release their debut album later in the year. Riff heavy, short songs with catchy soaring vocals, their tracks envoke obvious comparisons to the likes of Sabbath and Metallica. Before the LP is released in September, the five-piece play the iconic 100 Club as support for US metal punks VALIENT THORR on 16th July.
Watch the video for Running Out Of Time, taken from the Cut The Crap DVD below. Tickets for the show are available here.
