The Live Music Issue
Breaking through in the U.S. is no easy task, but Oceans At Alaska is long overdue. Their technical prowess and business-savvy makes you think they’re a veteran band, but for a debut album, it’ll make more than a splash across the pond.
The 2015 annual edition of our collection of live music, including an extra-special Tour Photo Diary of Oceans Ate Alaska by Kelly Hamilton, celebrates some of the most unique touring talents, as well as special interviews and quotes from some of the best live acts on the road right now.
Nothing More revives the live show and Miss May I checks in from the selling-out-everywhere Frozen Flame tour (the night after their hometown show), and Wovenwar’s Jordan Mancino recounts his days from high school to his ultimate goal of perfecting his live metal performance every night.
Upon a Burning Body vocalist Danny Leal talks the life of a band from San Antonio and life without Whataburger with Darkness Divided vocalist Gerard Mora, as UABB embarks on gigs after their smash cover of DJ Snake’s “Turn Down for What” with Ice Cube and Body Count hit it big.
We also talk with Linkin Park, Discourse, and Least of These about their latest touring exploits, Taylor Young (NAILS, Disgrace) checks in with his latest stories and Mallory Knox, another band from the United Kingdom, is also getting shown a lot of love Stateside as they’re about to play their way across it. Songwriter extraordinaire Jeremy Camp also sends over his favorite live acts and favorite rock albums.
Join us as we celebrate the greatest moments of the night, as we all make memories in 2015 watching some of the best music in person as it comes through our towns.
