We have been super excited about this show for a while, it's rare to get a night full heavy alt-rock music in Aberdeen these days. If you're a fan (and I know we always say this) then this is going to be a show for you!
We have been slightly quieter over the last couple of months but we aren't dropping off the grid, we've all had a pretty busy summer but we are working on some new material that has the potential to be our best music to date and we are planning on getting some of that out to you pretty soon!
NEXT FRIDAY THEN, AYE?

Shinoda Skulls are now tattooed on: this is Mike Shinoda’s post traumatic journey but it’s also a journey for me as I get make time for myself to travel, see live concerts and support him. I have a ‘kerrang’ skull where I first met him, the ‘Reading’ festival logo and the German and Sweden skulls for the Cologne & Stockholm shows that I went to. I’m only getting flags if they are solo shows; hoping for more next year if he does some more in Europe.
They had to go near my tribute for Chester & my scroll which says: ‘we’re all stories in the end, just make it a good one’- I think everything ties in together. Coincidentally , all of these tattooed were booked in for a Thursday- I feel it’s fate ❤️🙌🏻

Four Year Strong - Rise Or Die Trying (2007)
Whatever you think of modern pop-punk, Four Year Strong have always done their own thing. 'Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Hell' absolutely blew my socks off in Year 9 and was the first ringtone I had, courtesy of @owenclaxton94. This is just a great all-out attack from five bearded blokes, beating you with double-bass kicks, intricate guitar rhythms and quick-paced vocals aided by the delivery of co-frontmen Dan O'Connor and Alan Day.
I've seen the band a couple of times, but last year I saw them play this record in full at a gig in Manchester. My ONLY annoyance is that this hasn't been remastered, despite receiving a 10 year anniversary tour and release. Like The Wonder Years did with 'Get Stoked On It!', FYS could easily give this record a gloss and allow it to deliver with the power it deserves. With great riffs comes great responsibility to re-master... And great nostalgia. One of the very few bands from the late 2000s pop-punk era that weren't copying anyone else. I do prefer their later records because of that beefy sound, but I hold this album very close.
Hey gang! This guy told us that there’s a way to sell t-shirts on the internet and we looked into it and he was totes for realski. So now our t-shirts are online and you can buy one and be as beautiful as a freshly delivered pizza. LINK IN BIO Xoxo AB
