Crossed Keys are the kind of band that write songs that get stuck in your head for days. I dare you to listen to "Times Of Grace"(track 1 off their new 12" Saviors which you can purchase here...) and not want to jump through your fucking living room ceiling and high 5 yourself (or upstairs neighbour) because it's just that good.
War Bison released, probably my favourite album of the year. Top 3 FOR SURE. If you like melodic hardcore with a late 80's/early 90's vibe that sounds fresh, then "Acre" will be right up your alley. Dwayne, their vocalist being the good dude he is took time to go in on five questions.
Thanks again to social media, i've "known" Henk for quite a while. He has a SICK record collection and plays in a rad Dutch hardcore band (recently re-united) called Icepick. They've played with Power Trip, Gorilla Biscuits, Cockney Rejects and a tonne more, and will be playing with Judge (!!!) in September. If you haven't, do yourself a favour and check them out (they are way better than the Jamey Jasta "Icepick"). In the meantime, Henk answered a few questions for me.
Other than being a shipping (literally) wizard, and helping out with Road Rage, Philippe Pomschdi Rohr is in a gnarly Youth Crew band called Safe State & helps run Grim Reality Records. I'm pretty sure he also likes that last Joy Divi - i mean, Ceremony record. Each to their own, i guess. Give me "Violence, Violence" any day of the week. Still, he's a super good dude who i'm lucky enough to call a mate.
Zurich's Evelinn Trouble has been around music her whole life. Her mother is a Jazz Musician, and Evelinn grew up in the local squat scene. She's so far released four albums and three EP's in just over ten years (of which she's produced some herself), lived in London and she's worked with Sophie Hunger.
