Cancer Bats at The Cambridge Hotel, Newcastle – 11th October 2019 Photographer: Ben Hosking

I was lucky enough to witness Canada’s Cancer Bats in action back sometime around 2013 and was struck by the band’s intensity and obvious enjoyment with what they were doing. That was a Sidewave at Sydney’s Hi-Fi Bar supporting Bullet for My Valentine – which in this reviewer’s mind was a bit of an odd pairing, but whatever…

THE AMITY AFFLICTION – ‘Heaven and Hell’, Brisbane Riverstage – 14 September 2019 Photographer: Josh Woning

Judging by the ratio of sitting real estate  v.s. standing, at The Amity Affliction’s Heaven and Hell festival, I’d say there’s a good chance we’ll see it back again next year, because like Frenzal said, ‘all we need is a punch in the face’, sonically that is.

Album Review : LEEROY STAGGER – STRANGE PATH

Review by Pete Coates – facebook.com/InsideEdgePhotography

Canadian artist Leeroy Stagger’s name might not ring too many bells with Australian music lovers, but hopefully that situation is about to change with the release of his latest album, Strange Path – released on Sept 13th through True North Records / MGM. Despite the lack of familiarity, Leeroy has so far released 11 albums, 2 EPs and has 17 years as a singer-songwriter under his belt which has seen him develop a reputation as a masterful lyricist and exciting performer, garnering a strong following in his homeland, while also making inroads into both the UK and US in recent years.
