  1. 2018 New Music

    Hmm I mean I’ll obviously give Arctic Monkeys one a go and enjoy it but the level of hype will be unbearable and it’ll no doubt throw off that enthusiasm. Muse CD will bang when people chuck it straight out of the car window before they get home from shopping. New BRMC stuff is sounding good, they’re on my list. Oh yeah those should all be goodies. Love all those can’t believe I forgot lol
  2. TRNSMT Festival 2018

    I'd say they would, yeah. What's the point in getting a bumper sub if not to boost sales? Like this year the one who'd probably struggle the most for sales had the 'special guest' sub. I think it's a moot point anyway really cos I can't see them relegating Snow Patrol whilst simultaneously boosting Stereophonics but let's say if any day had the a whopping undercard it'd be the one with a shaky headline choice.
  3. 2018 New Music

    I just had a little read about this and the new Marr solo album is out in spring, and the Marr & Peake album isn't finished but they're hoping it'll be out mid-2018. More arsed about the latter tbh. I'm interested to know what the BIG ones are that people are most looking forward to in the new year. We've definitely been spoilt this year as everyone you could hope for has brought out an album. Personally quite hyped for new MGMT and The Voidz who definitely have new stuff soon, and I've got 20+ lesser hyped with announced released dates saved to a notepad doc, and off the top of my head we should expect Father John Misty and Car Seat Headrest releases, maybe Kanye if we're lucky, but it might be a year where smaller names can grab the plaudits for themselves.
  4. Download 2018

    Maybe but most of the less-Download acts (I'd add Starcrawler to that) are on Foo Fighters day so I think it's to cater to that crowd. A lot of the bands there are past or future Foo Fighters support acts.
  5. Lineup 2018

    Yeah I'm only kidding around cos you obviously like the acts and boost their chances of playing a lot. I do the same with my faves. S'all good. Honestly this could just be the case when the poster comes out and we'd have to deal with it. No. They're still playing the festivals they were announced for and I'm sure they'll be announced for more in coming months too.
  6. Lineup 2018

    Oh I'm surprised I thought it'd look more like this:
  7. TRNSMT Festival 2018

    I think if anything they would be subbing a smaller headliner to make it worth £60 or however much, right? Arctic Monkeys day will sell out even if it’s the bloody Revs subbing.
  8. Lineup 2018

    Smashed it.
  9. TRNSMT Festival 2018

    In the eyes of the bookers of this festival. Snow Patrol are headliners. They headlined T in the Park on all of their last three albums, whereas Stereophonics haven't headlined T in the Park for a long time. Arcade Fire are supposed to be back in North America in July, but other posters are right that there still being tickets available to their Glasgow show in April doesn't bode well for them playing either. You can count them out.
  10. Lineup 2018

    Fickle Friends fifth down the main stage? The Wombats and Nothing But Thieves third down? Suuure you "found" this.
  11. Queens of the Stone Age

    What, that he mistook the camera for a gay man? He's quite clearly not homophobic given his choice of company but it's an ill-choice of word and deserved to be chewed out over it all those years ago, sure. Just as the other night when he was calling people 'retards', I'm not under the impression he's ableist and if he was then that should be the headline really. Just a bad thing to say separate from his actual feelings towards people.
  12. Lineup 2018

    Apparently they're touring the US or something during July, between the June and August legs. But that post I just did was suggesting why it's very unlikely? Yeah, Haven Festival. It's like the 11th August or something - one of the Scandinavian festivals I mentioned just then.
  13. Best Kept Secret Festival 2018

    Oh wow it just clicked that Arcade Fire headline a show in Rotterdam the day after BKS finishes. Am I right in thinking that's where most Brits head back from? P clever that.
  14. Lineup 2018

    Arcade Fire's new dates just made them super unlikely, I reckon. My reasoning being that if they were to stay in Europe after the Scandinavian festivals they'd have to fill the time with stuff like Pukkelpop, Sziget, Gampel, Frequency and Lowlands. They've just announce summer dates (below) that cancel out four of those, and the other one - Pukkelpop - could be accounted for by the Belgian show they play in April. So I reckon those chances are done for. Sad but I dunno why I got my hopes up anyway. I guess the routing can still leave the door open for them to headline Bestival but Arcade Fire are likely out of their reach now, could've been announced today alongside other European dates and also the arena shows in UK more than make up for no festival dates.

    dentalplan: "Lay off the substances chief." Also dentalplan: "Play Feel Good Hit of the Summer every set."
  16. TRNSMT Festival 2018

    Oh I've just realised that The Killers are Sunday and not Friday at TRNSMT. Snow Patrol are busy in Spain on Friday so unless they're 1st July (the date Arctic Monkeys are rumoured for) then they're out of the mix. Bound to be something more interesting then! edit: ignore that. I've just realised I'm getting weekends mixed up again and Snow Patrol are free. Bloody hell.
  17. Sad times

    He’s been leaked for Sziget so this must be pretty likely.
  18. Lineup 2018

    Why bother with any performers at all?
  19. Lineup 2018

    I think double duty would be easy to do.
  20. Lineup 2018

    Does anyone else think they should have Big Shaq open main stage one of the days? Will only need a short set but people will get into the arena early regardless.
  21. TRNSMT Festival 2018

    Snow Patrol gotta be the other then.
  22. Lineup 2018

    I think Sziget is due to announce tomorrow and Frequency on Wednesday so this is definitely about the time where August fests dust off their first names. Frequency is the one where Twenty One Pilots are rumoured to be playing so it’ll be worth seeing if that proves true.
  23. Album of the Year 2017

    I prefer it to Humanz and The Magic Whip.
  24. Queens of the Stone Age

    Definitely not just you. Also I think the "what if gender roles reversed??" types have been rightly met with such derision that in an incident like this where it does seem like they're playing up for clicks that it was a woman who got injured accidentally, it's like you risk your argument will be thrown in with that lot and that you're excusing actual domestic violence or something along those lines. Yet now we're seeing alleged 'hypocrisy' regarding the Nick Oliveri situation and some fans pondering the future of Queens and whether they wanna see them again... over kicking a camera. I mean if people wanna disassociate because he's a reckless dick and he's hurt someone and thrown around offensive language then they should, but he has previous for all of that anyway - it was only this year he was in another assault lawsuit iirc. I do think it'll blow over quickly but I am quite taken aback by the reaction. I think most of the fans are united in saying that he should pay handsomely to settle this (just as he shoulda if he succeeded in only kicking the camera) and that he should do some reevaluation and perhaps rehabilitation, but the current social climate has people going wild about tearing down public figures.
  25. Taylor Swift

    No Taylor hasn't gone off the boil that heavily lmao
