Nashville newcomers Lonelyouth offer up an exciting, diverse sound that sits somewhere between nu-metal, metalcore and melodic rock. They’ve honed a sound that offers plenty of aggression and its fair share of groove, with booming guitar riffs fused with powerful vocals engaging melodies.

Discover This: Beyond The Badlands

We’ve featured a couple of ‘Internet bands’ in the past, but Beyond The Badlands is definitely one of the most interesting. The band was founded in January by guitarist and songwriter Cuda Smith, who’s currently stationed in Germany and spends six months of the year deployed with the military which leaves him another six months to hone his brand of southern rock.

New Band of the Week: The Zangwills

One thing you can rely on the north of England for is producing brilliant new Indie bands and it’s been too long since we featured one. However, the wait has been more than worth it with the discovery of loosely Cheshire-based band The Zangwills, who offer up engaging singalong vocals alongside lively indie instrumental goodness.

New Band of the Week: Demure

Brighton band Demure are using a foundation of classic rock and building a wide range of musical influences on top of it, from funk and blues to psychedelia, reggae and even hip-hop. The result is an intoxicating fusion of delicious riffs, catchy vocals, funky instrumentals and plenty of musical diversity.

Discover This: Meantime

London-based Meantime is formed of a Slovakian and a South African, neither of which are your traditional punk rock powerhouses.

Introducing: Flammable Animal

How would you feel about revisiting songs or even things you thought or ranted about 21 years ago? Personally, I think it’s best not to even contemplate visit 15-year-old me’s thoughts. However, that’s exactly what brilliantly named Los Angeles rock band Flammable Animal (try saying that three times) are doing with their recently released debut EP that transports us back to our formative music days of the 1990s.
