Bury Tomorrow [Photo Credit: Tom Barnes]

There are plenty of reasons to be excited about metalcore again right now, and few have managed to revive its most basic and shameless formula in such emphatic, well-executed fashion as Bury Tomorrow. The South Coast crew released a hum-dinger of an album with last year’s chorus-stacked The Union Of Crowns, but amazingly, this week sees their first proper headline trek in honour of that album.

They’ve been racking up support slots, festival sets and overseas tours aplenty over the past 18 months, but fans will finally get the chance to get the full BT experience shoved in their faces during this particular tour, with all dates either sold out or perilously close to doing so.

This will be your final chance to catch the lads before they fully throw themselves into recording album number three, so if you’re able to snag a ticket, grab one, have a big old mosh and a singalong and help celebrate the rise of one of the UK’s most promising young acts.

Catch them on the dates below:

Sep 26 Southampton Mo Club
Sep 27 Bristol The Fleece
Sep 28 Birmingham O2 Academy2
Sep 29 Manchester Academy 3
Sep 30 Newcastle O2 Academy2
Oct 1 Glasgow Garage
Oct 2 Nottingham Rescue Rooms
Oct 3 Norwich Waterfront
Oct 4 London O2 Academy Islington

The Union Of Crowns is out now via Nuclear Blast

Hell

We’ve only been sent another update on that new Hell album from our mate, Andy Sneap. What’s occurin’, Sneap?

“Thank Satan it’s Friday! Still not enough hours in the day, how God created the world in six days I’ll never know… I think he’s lying, personally. Last of the bass going down today hopefully and I’m still loving the fact we managed to get cowbell into a song, I’d have it all over the album if it was down to me. Just one more song vocally to work a couple of sections out on and I have guitars on an old song , Deliver Us From Evil, to do late tonight once everyone has gone home.

“Hopefully I’ll be in mix mode by Monday; one good thing about tracking your own album is I’ve been able to pre mix stuff and prep the sessions to how I’d have them so this speeds the process up drastically. We are immensely proud with what we’ve achieved here, hopefully you will enjoy it as much as we do.”

New Hell album Curse And Chapter will be released November 25 via Nuclear Blast.

Tickets for this year’s monstrous Defenders Of The Faith IV tour are on sale….NOW!

Amon Amarth, Carcass, Bleed From Within and Hell hit the following venues this winter:

Tarja and Sharon: New BBFs

Symphonic metal fans around the world are set to lose their shit as it’s been revealed that the new Within Temptation single will feature none other than former Nightwish singer, Tarja Turunen!

Paradise (What About Us?) will land later this month and will be the first new Within Temptation track to be released from their upcoming, as-yet-untitled new album, due out early next year.

“When we had written the first version of Paradise and listened back to the demo we’d recorded and the epic power of the song, we thought of Tarja instantly,” says WT’s Sharon Den Adel. “How well this track would fit her classical voice and how extra special it would be if we sang it together. The more we thought about this wild idea, the more excited we got about it!

“Of course I didn’t know what to expect from Tarja, as we’d never actually met in person ’till June this year. Our first encounter was via a Skype call we’d set-up to discuss the collaboration and we immediately clicked, not only creatively but personally. After we’d spoken, it felt completely natural that we would do this together!”

Within Temptation: Back in the studio, soon back on the road

“It was very nice to finally meet Sharon and the Within Temptation guys,” adds Tarja. “I truly appreciate the invitation and the opportunity to work with them on their song ‘Paradise’. So wonderful that they thought of me! I hope our fans will like this ‘girl power’ duet!”

Within Temptation will return to the UK in early 2014 for a string of dates that includes a stop at Wembley Arena! You can catch Sharon and the boys at the following venues:

JANUARY 2014
FRIDAY            24                    O2 ACADEMY BIRMINGHAM
SATURDAY     25                    WEMBLEY ARENA
MONDAY         27                    O2 APOLLO MANCHESTER
TUESDAY        28                    O2 ACADEMY GLASGOW
WEDNESDAY  29                   O2 ACADEMY NEWCASTLE

Hell

We’ve only been sent another update on that new Hell album from our mate, Andy Sneap. What’s occurin’, Sneap?

“Spent the last 14 hrs tracking drums with Tim “ernie” Bower. Its an in joke, (google bennie Hill + ernie), we have alot of “in” jokes in this band, its great to finally be in a band where everyone wants the same result, team players….who would have thought!!! Lets just say, its a refreshing change from my previous position. Go figure.

“Anyway, All 12 tracks now done on drums, myself and Kev in full swing finishing guitars and keys, Tony in later this week to do the last of the bass and Dave is in lunch time to keep working on vocals. Artwork and photos to go over in the meantime, plus sorting travel and shows for sept and tour in November. I also have the label wanting listening copies and I’m due to fly to US in 3 weeks straight after german festival to start work producing the next Accept record. I don’t think I’ve ever been busier…..did I mention having to do a studio report for metal hammer everyday also……”
