You know that feeling when you hear a new band for the first time, fall in love with them and can’t stop listening to them? Well, our mission at GigRadar is to keep bringing you those bands.

We aim to bring you the latest, most exciting bands on the rock and metal scene, and help you find the best gigs near you. We hope our band interviews, reviews and general news and observations will help you find the music you’ll soon love, and help you find your new favourite band.

You can find all of that in our New Band of the Week features, find bands from all over the world in our Introducing section, and check out our range of Reviews. You can also find upcoming gigs on the Gig Listings page.

Above all, we want to hear from you so please do get involved! Email us on gigradar@hotmail.com, go to our Facebook page or follow us on Twitter.
