Live Review: Enter Shikari - October 13th 2009

The Devil Wears Prada bounce onto the stage tonight. A youthful band full of energy making only their second appearance on UK soil. Judging by the number of fans sporting tee shirts, you wouldn’t be able to tell that this is only their second time, or the fact that they were even a support band! Mainly playing material from their latest release, 'With Roots and Branches Below', their huge breakdowns and soaring vocal melodies give the fans just what they want. Front man Mike bounding around the stage like a Tasmanian devil not standing still for a moment. Older songs such as Dogs Can Grow Beards All Over still get fan approval even though played at the beginning of the set, which seems odd as it is one of their best none songs. The crowd knows the songs, old and new, and with a reception like this, Enter Shikari have a lot to live up to!

MPM meets... The Devil Wears Prada - October 13th 2009

The Devil Wears Prada are a metalcore sextet from Ohio, formed in 2005. They're popular amongst boys and girls alike, and graced the line up of this year's Download Festival in Donnington. When we found out they were going to be touring with Enter Shikari this autumn, we couldn't help but catch up with vocalist Mike Hranica and find out the latest from TDWP HQ.

MPM meets... All Time Low - October 2nd 2009

Here at Moshpit Magazine, we really can't get enough of All Time Low. The band has recently released their brand new album, 'Nothing Personal', and are touring the UK with The Audition and The Friday Night Boys. Since we thought Alex Gaskarth was such a charmer when we interviewed him in May 2008, we figured he's probably got so many more exciting things to say this Autumn. We caught up with him in the new O2 Academy in Birmingham, before he faced a crowd of around 3000 people, to see how he's feeling.
