Live Review: Don't Forget Rupert

Don't Forget Rupert (Round Three)Headline Tour
Nottingham
17th of April 2019
Don't Forget Rupert
So Don't Forget Rupert have just finished their first UK tour, and they kicked the tour off in Nottingham... and of course I had to get myself down there to go and check out what round 3 had on offer, they also released a new song on that day as well, which is called Bringing Back Old Memories, it's an absolute bop!
I do want to add that I did get the chance of getting to talk to Ben and Lewis and they were so lovely! And I got to show them my Long Time Coming tattoo and yeah, it was a nice touch to the night!
I've seen Don't Forget Rupert three times now and this was definitely the best. They're such an incredible band, and honestly, I can't wait to see them again, because they're so much energy in their sets, and every time I see them there always ends up being a wild Ben Martin in the crowd, which really just makes it even better!
We had a great mix of songs, from stuff like Keep Up to Bringing Back Old Memories, and then the classics like Get Fucked and Long Time Coming. It was an incredible setlist, and I don't think I could have picked a better set of songs for them to do. Honestly, that setlist was perfect for the night. It got the crowd engaged from the second that it started.
They opened with Time Takes It's Toll and closed with Get Fucked so really could you ask for anything better? I don't think so!
If you haven't had the pleasure of seeing Don't Forget Rupert live then you kind of have to, because they're just incredible! There is always so much energy, and I don't just mean from Ben. Every one of them puts in loads of energy, and it's incredible because a gig with energy makes it enjoyable. It makes you want to be there. You enjoy it more, you enjoy joining in and jumping and clapping along and just having an overall great time!
Every time I see Don't Forget Rupert I'm always left wanting to relive it all over again because they really are just that great! And they're super lovely, I mean I only spoke to Ben and Lewis but they're both lovely and I'm sure Lou and Pete are too!
Such lovely guys, with such great talent. You need to see Don't Forget Rupert if you get the chance to because they really are one of the best, they're definitely in my top 3 top Notts bands!
Overall I'd give it a solid 5 out of 5 sparkly lemons!

Introducing: My Latest Failure

Okay, so My Latest Failure are a band I've mentioned once, possibly twice, but that's it. However, Chris asked me if I'd be up for reviewing their music, so I thought why the hell not! 

My Latest Failure are a punk band from Middlesex, England (London if you're not geographically smart). They combine sub-genres of punk and metal to "produce hard-hitting verses with catchy sing along choruses which we call hardcore injected punk". They are inspired by hardcore punk and heavily influenced by 90s punk rock, pop-punk and nu-metal. This results in their sound having an interesting balance of aggresion, high energy and melodic noise. 
My Latest Failure are a three-piece consisting of; 

Chris Underhill - Guitar and VocalsAndy Hale - Bass and VocalsJamie Boyle - Drums
Now, let's talk music. I actually put Selfish down in the top 10 of the best single in the quarantine awards, so it's very evident that I love Selfish, however, there are 5 other songs out for you a…

Introducing: Light Grey

Oh, hi! Welcome back to another introducing post! Today I'm bringing you Ireland's finest, Light Grey! They followed me on Twitter and one thing led to another and now we're here! Believe me, you're not ready to meet this band. They're insane! 

So Light Grey are an Ireland based trio that consists of;

Ciaran - Vocals and Guitar
Mikey - Bass 
Conor - Drums

They're pop-rock/pop-punk and they're insane! Kinda like Waterparks but better, I'd say if you like modern pop-punk you'll probably really like them! I think they're incredible! 

For fans of - Waterparks, All Time Low, State Champs and Give Me A Reason. 

But let's be realistic, we're here to talk about if the songs are any good... so let's dive into it. 

For reference, Light Grey has 9 songs out currently which is great! We love that! 

So like I tend to do, I'm going to start with the earliest release and work my up to their latest release. 

They released an EP back in 2018 called Beginne…

Introducing: Autumn Fires

Welcome to instalment 2 of Small Band Week 2! 
Now, I have mentioned Autumn Fires a couple of times here in other posts, but I am so happy to say that I am going to be bringing you some content on them properly now! If you didn't know, Autumn Fires were one of the bands I really wanted to work with, and I'm now bringing you content. I will be bringing you a review of their new single when it drops in a couple of weeks! But let's get into this! 

So, Autumn Fires is a pop-punk band from London that consists of the following; 

Charlotte Haimes - Vocals
Callum Skea - Guitar
Jamie Smart - Guitar
Jay Matthews - Bass
Ryan Green - Drums

They're an incredibly talented band, and I love them! They currently have 3 songs out right now, so as always, I'm going to talk you through my thoughts on each track. 

The first song Autumn Fires released was Waking Up in Vegas, and what a song this is! 
I love the beat this song, I love Charlotte's voice, I love that nobody is drowning the othe…
