Our New Band of the Week is strictly for exciting new British bands only. We interview new bands from across the rock and metal spectrum, take a listen to their music and find out what makes them tick. Check out our interviews with emerging UK rock and metal talent below.
New Belfast band Paper Tigers have honed a thrilling alternative rock sound led by powerful vocals and delicious riffs laced with punk rock energy, which they describe as “Bitchin’ alt rock.”
Radars are on full beam as GigRadar meets RADARS! The Hull band have honed an engaging guitar-driven sound that’ll carry you to back to the indie rock heyday of the 2000s, and which they describe as “catchy, dancey and fun.”
We discovered Bristol band IMMERSE through Spotify’s Discover Weekly playlist and we think you’re going to love them too.
Exciting York rockers FOXHAUNT tow the line nicely between melodic rock and hard-hitting metal in an engaging sound that they described in three words “hooks, mosh and groove.”
Like a fine red wine, Bristol’s BEGGAR have gotten better with age to become an exciting addition to the UK’s impressive metal scene, thanks largely to the addition of a Frenchman.
Strap yourself in for an epic start to your week courtesy of heavy progressive rock band LUTE. The Manchester quartet tell us that their epic cinematic sound is almost like listening to a film soundtrack and joke “maybe we’ll write a musical one day!”
Welsh rockers The Routines offer up a highly relatable brand of indie rock influenced by the tediousness of full-time menial work and enjoyable social observations.
We love a good heavy rock two-piece and in Scottish duo Alkanes we present exactly that. The Inverness band fuse heavy riffing and big catchy vocals in a seriously engaging sound that they describe as “raw, energetic and intense.”
ASKARI, led by the distinctive vocals of frontman Asher Baker, are a band that pulls no punches and are on a mission to throw, in their words, “walls of sound around any size venue and spitting vitriolic lyrics squarely in the face of absolutely every fucker ever.”
The thrilling sound of Chiasmata walks the tightrope between atmospheric and cinematic metal and the complexity of modern technical metal, and the result is pretty special.
This week’s New Band of the Week is a little unusual given that we’d already featured the band after they’d changed their name and now they’ve changed their name back to the old name.
