The Trouble with Templeton are a five piece Alternative folk band from Brisbane who have been gaining momentum this past year with a smooth masterful sound and emotionally charged lyrics. Releasing their sophomore album Rookie, It is clear why they have been getting attention. Second track You are New showcases bands talent at craftily blending a variety of instruments with vocalist Thomas Calder’s striking vocals finishing the sound. Like a Kid speeds up the pace and is a nice change from the slow first few tracks. Finishing strongly with Lint, Rookie proves itself to be a thoroughly good release. The vocals would be the stand out for me and the album is definitely one you should check out if you are a fan of the likes of Matt Corby and Can Cisco. You can catch The Trouble with Templeton next at the Queenscliff Music festival.

New Song: Rivals - “Dead Profits” (Metalcore) [Brisbane, Australia]
This is a suuuuuper heavy track and those who like Sworn In and other heavy bands, you’ll really dig these guys. There’s a bit of a slow clean part in the middle, but don’t let that fool you, because after that is even more heavy music!
Taperjean Music are pleased to announce HUNDREDTH’s maiden voyage to Australia this November, fresh off headlining The Free Mind Tour across the USA earlier this year.
With five years of intelligent, cathartic hardcore and poignant lyrics under their belt, HUNDREDTH fans and hardcore enthusiasts alike have gratefully received the heavier and matured efforts of their critically acclaimed Revolt EP, deemed by Alternative Press, “the most potent music the South Carolina quintet have put their name to”.
Jumping onboard the tour is two of the nation’s most exciting up and coming melodic hardcore acts. Sydney’s VICES are making waves touring the country relentlessly this year off the back of their debut full length. Also joining the tour is South Australian upstarts, SIERRA who have just finished touring the country with Being As An Ocean.

The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus is a Faith driven punk rock/post hardcore band who strives to show people the light in a world of dark through music and after 4.5 years – the band are finally coming back to Australian shores to celebrate the release of their latest 10th Anniversary EP ‘Et Tu, Brute?’.
The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus brings somewhat a nostalgia factor to mid naughties, best are known for their massive hits ‘Face Down’ and ‘Your Guardian Angel’ released in 2005, however the aim of this tour is for the band to play in-front of their real fans in Australia that they may of missed through playing on the Soundwave tour back in 2009.

Columbus is a 4 piece punk/emo band from Brisbane who formed in March of 2012. Since then, they have been working on, and finally released their EP “Sad Songs and Sing-Alongs”.
The EP is great for people who enjoy bands such as Blink 182, La Dispute, and classic Bad Religion. Columbus has their own very unique sound. The lyrics are really interesting and the whole EP has a really cool vibe to it. The instruments and vocals compliment each other really well, blending in with one another. The songs are really relaxing and have quite an emotional feel to them. All in all, it’s definitely something that I would recommend especially if you’re into punk.

Feel This Tour? Yes I felt it alright! On November 4th 2013 I had the opportunity to watch Sleeping With Sirens, Memphis Mayfire, Breathe Carolina, & ISSUES live at The Electric Factory in Philadelphia PA! I can honestly say this entire show blew me away, all of the bands that played were amazing. They all put on such a powerful, energetic, & compelling performances!
First band to go on was ISSUES, a six piece group of Hooligans that formed a band from Atlanta, Georgia. who started the show off great with their 7 song set list. Which was 7 of their biggest hits, they put on an amazing show even Spiderman attended & crowd surfed his way to the stage! (as pictured above) They were a heavier metal band that definitely got the crowds hearts pumping & their energy levels up preparing them for the next several bands to go on.

If you had to sum up the music of Winterfold, Melodic Metalcore would come to mind, and their debut EP, Despondency, certainly demonstrates that in a strong and stern manner. Winterfold certainly provides an EP which is worth a listen, or two for that matter.
Despondency is not one of those releases which should be considered individual track by individual track, rather it stands-up better as a collective, and it does it well if you take that approach. One of the aspects which jumps out is how forward the drums are in the mix; providing much urgency to many of the tracks. I’m sure I’m not alone, but I love when you can really hear the thud and clang of the drums.
Yesterday I had the opportunity to watch Dream on Dreamer, A Skylit Drive, No Bragging Rights, Hellions and Justice For The Damned play an energetic and compelling performance at The Annandale Hotel. Let me add, I was very impressed. Most bands met the expectations that they’ve created from the hype of album releases, to video music clips, new single and so on. With the crowd jumping, throwing down and singing along to the very tunes the bands spent ages writing, this developed into a sensational atmosphere in the room, creating a fun environment for both the bands playing and the audience watching.
First band of the day was Justice For The Damned. A 5 pieced metal core band from the inner west of Sydney, starting the show with a bang (literally). They put on a phenomenal show which definitely warmed the crowd up. No technical errors or mistakes made by the musicians which enhanced a better performance. They reminded me a bit of Parkway Drive, because of their heavy breakdowns and double timed verses which put the audience into their comfort zone preparing them for the next few bands.
