  1. Lineup 2018

    At The Drive-In are great on record. Even though they seem shit live now it shouldn't stop you from listening to them. Relationship of Command is a classic and is really worth a listen.
  2. Tour Announcements & Upcoming Gigs

    Sorry to be the bearer of bad news but they wont do any other on top of Slam Dunk. The headliners don't do any extra dates. Think Shikari did Belfast this year but that it really. The only other possibility is a intimate London show before Slam Dunk that would be announced like one or two weeks before but then I again I doubt it. Tempted by the Manchester date and I don't suppose tickets will be that much either. Also with it being Band On The Wall there is the possibility of it being only £6 though I don't know much about that as I've never been to an event there.

    Didn't know this was another parody account
  4. Lineup 2018

    Yeah please. I was gutted when the singer for BearFur was outed as a nonce
  5. Lineup 2018

    Learn what victim shaming is and then stop it Don't underestimate the trauma cased by sexual assault and the manipulation that an abuser will use. Reading these stories, it seems that these people did it for some sort of validation. Also, these things are incredibly hard to prove so the police will do nothing. Telling their stories on twitter is the only thing they can do
  6. Slam Dunk 2018

    Doubt Brand New were ever booked. The accusations again Jesse came out before Slam Dunk had said there would be an announcement. I know they announced the general festival before hand but only mentioned what day the announcement would be on this Sunday. They could have easily waited a few weeks to get someone to fill in the spot before announcing acts. Also Jimmy Eat World has been confirmed as the headliner. Was on social media that's for sure. Where did you find this? This is amazing
  7. Slam Dunk 2018

    A few bands do other shows but these don't tend to be the headliners or bigger acts. Mainly the smaller bands and even then it's normally just like an extra date in London Tru
  8. Slam Dunk 2018

    Well turns out my mad theories were wrong but I like this announcement. Really happy with Four Year (hope they're headlining Key Club stage) and I'll see TBS, State Champ, JEW and Trash Boat is no one else is on. Good start
  9. Tour Announcements & Upcoming Gigs

    Shitty way to go but then again we can't be supporting abusers like this, especially so close to the accusations (which Jesse pretty much confirmed anyway). Hate to see it end this way, but fuck him. He's a c**t 100% this. Also, fuck people claiming these people are doing it for attention or being like "force on skype". Think they need to stop being in denial that they're favourite artists can be horrible people and admit that being a rape apologist (not the right term but close enough) is wrong. Also in regards to that statement it was poor. Being a sex addict and having mental health problems is not an excuse to manipulate and groom and underage girl. Reminded me of when Lou Diamond of JANK and of Jake McElfresh of Front Porch Step tried to "apologise," but those projects didn't last very long after they were outed. Yeah same. Brand New were my 2nd favourite band (that honour has now gone to Modern Baseball) and help me through some shitty stuff. I mean, I still appreciate what the band has done for me. Just sucks that he was an awful person I hope the victims get the support and help and it's good to see the scene get behind them. EDIT: Also I thought I make the final point about the scene getting better at calling at this bullshit and I'm glad it's happening. Don't need that toxicity but it still baffles me how Eddie from Moose Blood and Itch from King Blues have managed to get away with stuff they've been accused of.
  10. Slam Dunk 2018

    Yeah but I don't think any of those are likely as well to be honest. I just feel like if they wanted to have had these bands they would have done so already. I'm not saying who is headlining this year is going to be a repeat though. Just that JEW have really been of a staple of the genre for a while, it just seems odd that they are only just being called in to headline. Then again I might be wrong about it so don't take my word as fact but that's just what I make of it I'm also going to point out that for the past 4 years the headliners weren't really on the early European festival circuit at all. Most of them just did their own headline shows across Europe. Think All Time Low did the most when they did like 4 fests. I think it's Slam Dunk is a big enough draw for artists to get them over here in May and do a few other shows. Don't think they need to rely on who is and isn't about for festivals in June at all since they're so early into the festival season. Though I maybe talking about of my ass here. I'm still gonna go with no one being right in their headliner predictions (though that is a large stroke of the brush). I didn't know that and turns out it's a whole tour and while they could do it over here I looked it up and their album was 70% done in May. Can't see them doing the Anniversary tours still when they've got a new album coming soon(ish)
  11. Slam Dunk 2018

    Won't it be the 11th year then Anyway Parkway will probably be at Download and they'll probably be promoting a new album
  12. Download 2018

    Well turns out my mates want to go Download this year. No idea why as they're not fans of the headliners but they are waiting to see who is playing first before getting tickets. But if they go I'll probably go so I would love to see a few of Converge, Sorority Noise/Old Gray, Frontierer, The Wonder Years, The Menzingers, Title Fight, Birds in Row, Turnstile, Loma Prieta, Ceremony and At The Drive-In
  13. Slam Dunk 2018

    The only reason I don't think it will be JEW is because if Slam Dunk wanted them to headline they would have done so in the past. Might be wrong and I wouldn't rule out because of that but just don't think it's likely In all seriousness though I have no idea who it could be but I reckon it'll be a surprise on Wednesday. Don't remember anyone correctly guessing the headliners in the past few years. They're saying who could headline the other stages but though the genres and stage sizes aren't really set in stone. The 2nd stage was far more Pop Punk this year and it was probably to counter balance the heavier main and in previous years it's been the other way around.
  14. Lineup 2018

    I thought it was a shitty response to be honest. I get all the legal shit but to make it all about yourself and blaming it on being a sex addict is pretty poor. The thing is very similar to what happened with JANK (Lou Diamond is a fucking scumbag) and they weren't a band much longer after his "apology" and I see the same thing happening here.
  15. Download 2018

    Yeah not a fan of those headliners at all. Was thinking about going this year but with those headliners I'll probably pass unless the undercard is good for me (which isn't looking likely).
