It’s all in anticipation of the release of their fifth album, ‘Freedom Child’, which is slated for release on the 1st of September on Columbia.

It’s been a while since I’ve written on The Script (I wasn’t fond of their last two albums), but you can read my archive of posts from 2013 and before through here.

Live Gig Video: The Libertines play ‘Up the Bracket’ headlining the Main Stage at Reading 2015 (Sunday)

 
By on Friday, 4th September 2015 at 4:00 pm
 

Today marks the release of the Libertines‘ third album, their first major release since ‘The Libertines’ 11 years ago. (Read my review of the surprisingly good ‘Anthems for Doomed Youth’ here.) For the faithful who trekked out to Reading / Leeds 2015 over the weekend, however, I’m sure they were more keen on hearing the band’s classics, including ‘Up the Bracket’. Well, you’re in luck. Sunday night when the band were headlining at Richfield Avenue, the BBC preserved the performance of that very song for posterity, and you can watch it below.

If you live in the UK, until the 29th of September you have access to over 40 full sets of action from Reading/Leeds 2015 through the BBC’s Web site for the festival weekend. For full details, go here. If you like outside the UK, you’ll be able to enjoy selected highlights from the weekend on BBC’s YouTube channel, including coverage from the BBC Introducing stage.

Live Gig Video: Royal Blood play ‘Little Monster’ on the Main Stage at Reading 2015 (Saturday)

 
By on Wednesday, 2nd September 2015 at 4:00 pm
 

As an American music editor who loves UK music, it’s sometimes unreal to me that I get the opportunity to see British bands who have already generated huge buzz back in blighty in tiny little places. Last summer I saw Royal Blood play a a packed out 200-capacity DC9. And now they’re throwing the entire viewing population of a massive festival like Reading 2015 into a frenzy? Incredible. Watch the hard rocking duo perform their single ‘Little Monster’ last Saturday at Richfield Avenue below.
