A Dose Of Alternative #3

Isn’t the last year leading up to the end of the world shaping up to be a great one for music? Well if there's anyone working in Retail out there they'll probably welcome the end of the world, I would have. Look on the bright side guys there's only 70 days left.... or on that day nothing happens then follow this link here. So I've got some great music for you here, first if you class yourself a rock fan and don't know who Reuben are then you should take a long hard look at yourself in the mirror. Because ex members Guy Davis and Jon Pierce (has now left) went on to form Freeze The Atlantic after Reuben split. So here we go!

Freeze The Atlantic

Forming in late 2008, ‘Freeze The Atlantic’ have been making rock music and enjoying rock MusicStarted initially by Andy Gilmour from ‘Hundred Reasons’ with Jon Pearce and Guy 
Davis, from the band ‘Reuben.

They quickly signed up second guitarist and long time friend Tom Stevens (Archie and the Instincts) and started writing brand new material. After a UK tour in 2010 with ‘Attack! Attack!’ featuring Liv Puente (Laruso) on guest vocals, the band recruited singer Chris J Knott (Twelve Titans). This year also saw original member Jon Pearce leaving for pastures new with the band drafting in bassist Sean Shreeve (Spectrum 7/Talking Endlessly), resulting in the current line-up.Their new album Speakeasy is just out and apart from being incredible all the way through, its holds moments of shear awesomeness that take me back to the days where I first discovered awesome music in my early teens! I have listened through it countless time now and am loving it more and more through every play through! 

Coheed and Cambria

The powerhouse band consist of Claudio Sanchez, Travis Stever, Josh Eppard and Zach Cooper. Having had many changes in their line up over the years hasn’t hurt their chances at success, boasting over 900,000 Likes on facebook which I just found out, although that is never a measure of how popular a band is, I mean Coldplay have 23 Million and their shit but its still impressive in its own right. They are a weird alt rock outfit who you really have to go and listen to because I can't really explain their music in words. Did you know all of the album, song and lyrics are based on the story from a Comic book that Claudio writes himself?

Guess what? apparently Coheed and Cambria think Soundcloud is to mainstream... 

Royal Republic

Looks like these Swedish bastards have done it again with their follow up album Save The Nation. Formed in late 2007. The band consists of guitarist/lead singer Adam Grahn, guitarist Hannes Irengård, bass guitarist Jonas Almén and drummer Per Andreasson, and yes.. their from Sweden. Balls out garage style rocking out as what is expected from these guys, in 5 years they have had huge success and if you haven't heard of them yet then it was only a matter of time.

Keep Fighting the Good fight, because if you don't. Who Will?
