#192 The return of giants

It’s been a mad fortnight; after passing through the whirlwind that was The Great Escape we’re now kinda in festival season, with something going every weekend between now and September. It’s not a bad way to spend your summer, but I’ll be sponsored by vitamin C tablets for sure.

Three New Tunes Not To Miss

It wouldn’t be an Elise music blog if the return of blink-182 wasn’t flagged. Still with Matt Skiba on vocals along with Travis and Mark, its a great 2019 jam.

 

Japanese kawaii band Babymetal are back with a new catchy number. It occurred to me that actually there’s still loads of people out there who have no idea why a pretty good metal band partner up with 3 high-school age girls dressed in cute outfits and dance. It’s a thing and give the band a google to watch more videos and get your head around it all!

 

Brighton trio Projector have been consistent in their delivery of music over the past couple of years and have always put on brilliant shows. Their new one below.

 

Album Review

Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes – End Of Suffering

Since we last spoke, British rockers Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes have shared their third album, which deserved every bit of it’s Chart position in the UK (#4). With a calmer approach than perhaps some of it’s previous siblings, this body of work is lyrically rich in terms of Frank speaking from the heart and tackling issues that affect a lot of us. For anyone that’s been to a Rattlesnakes show there’s always discussions of supporting safe spaces at gigs, mental health and just generally looking after each other in life. It’s a nice place to be. We’ve had the singles “Crowbar” and “Anxiety” sitting with us for a few weeks now but you’ll be treated to some punkier infused efforts like “Heartbreaker” or more indie skewed jams like “Latex Dreams”.

Top track: “Anxiety” – beautifully put together and a future anthem for many.

Audio Catch

Although the podcast has seemingly stopped publishing earlier this year, there’s 44 episodes to get stuck into. Their host guides you through the background of heavier metal genres and for those looking to explore and be more knowledgeable about the scene (+artist interviews) it’s a great stopping point.
