AFI: On the way back

AFI are finally poised to release the follow-up to 2009′s Crash Love – and it’s starting to look like their ninth album will appear in September.

Frontman Davey Havok has confirmed the band signed a deal with Republic Records for the launch, which will come after months of studio work.

Havok reports: “We are thrilled to be joining the Republic family. We’ve spent over two years realising this album and could not be more excited to share it with you all.”

AFI will hit the road as part of the Riot Fest concert series in Chicago and Denver during September.

Slam Dunk 2013: Up in yo’ grill

Think that Slam Dunk is for pop punks? Well a lot of it is, but there are some blinding heavier acts from across the spectrum playing this year’s festival, too! We’ve picked out the very finest acts set to blow your Bank Holiday to bits next week. You’re welcome.

Cancer Bats

Cancer Bats: True Canadian Hardcore

What is there left to say about one of hardcore’s great modern trailblazers? You know the drill by now: Cancer Bats will bound on stage, rip said stage apart, probably drop that cover just for the LOLs and then bound right back off again. Easy.

Memphis May Fire

The Texans are finally starting to get profile on these shores deserving of their status as one of metalcore’s most upstanding young offerings, not least thanks to last year’s ace Challenger album and a killer stint supporting Cali heavyweights Of Mice And Men last Autumn. Their relentless mashup of big breakdowns and bigger hooks make them perfect Slam Dunk fodder. Expect shit to go off.

Bury Tomorrow

Bury Tomorrow: Considerably Better At Catchy Choruses Than You

British metalcore’s fine young hopes, Bury Tomorrow dropkicked our jaws to the floor with last year’s spellbinding The Union Of Crowns and have generally been laying waste to whatever stage they take to ever since. Expect ferocious riffs and addictive hooks littered with dose choruses. Like this one…

The Word Alive

SYNTHS BRO

Sounding like Miss May I had a baby with AFI while eating a keyboard, The Word Alive are pretty much nailed-on favourites to make you want to bang your head, pump your fist, loosen your vocal chords and kick a glo-stick about every few bars.

Heights

Heights: hardcore, you know the score

Herts’ finest are not just one of the best hardcore-based bands to come out of the Home Counties this decade (no small order given that Gallows are from Watford, eh?), they’re also only getting better when it comes to leaving your jaw glued to the floor when it comes to the live shows.

Heart In Hand

The South Coast ragers are fast amassing themselves a formidable legion of followers and a well-deserved reputation as a turbulent live band. Expect big pits and, probably, some silly hardcore dancing. Well, it is a Bank Holiday, after all.

 Devil Sold His Soul

Devil Sold His Soul: Future heavyweights

With Ed Gibbs recently announcing his departure from the band, this will be your very last chance to catch DSHS with this lineup! The ambient post-hardcore world-beaters – who recently headlined our immense Razor Tour, lest we forget – will be on top form. Plus, you know shit’s going to get emotional. Don’t miss it.

Slam Dunk 2013 takes place May 25-27 across three venues, with three special mini-Slam Dunk events also taking place around them! Head to the official Slam Dunk site for the full lineup and all ticket details.
