Released on Sept 11th, 'That’s The Spirit' is currently sitting in the charts at Number 1 in Aus, Number 2 in the UK and US, and top 10 in more than 20 other countries, and rightly so!
The album has got everything: Massive sing along anthems like 'Happy Song' and 'Throne', string-laden epics like 'True Friends' and a pop/rock classic in 'Avalanche'. Plus last year's banger 'Drown', which introduced us all to their more mature sound. All killers, no fillers.
If you loved BMTH before, you might find this a departure from their first three albums, but it is definitely a step forward in every way from its predecessor 'Sempiternal'. More riffs, more synths, more melodies.
It is our album of the year so far!

What a weekend!
Every time the line up gets announced for a major festival, there is always an online debate about 'this band should/shouldn’t be headlining', or 'there's too much/too little indie/rock/electronica (delete as necessary).
But the thing we've come to realise now, looking back at the whole bill, is Reading and Leeds has one of the most varied line ups of any festival outside of Glastonbury, on a site that less than a tenth of the size. That’s what makes it so great!
There were so many musical highlights for us. Limp Bizkit prove they've kept on rolling, Marmozets completely blew us away, Alexisonfire smashed their way through their comeback leaving us begging for more, Bring Me The Horizon put on more than a performance on main stage, and Years & Years had us dancing our way back to our tents.
Not to mention Catfish and The Bottlemen, the rock gods that are Metallica, Jamie T, The Cribs, Boy Better Know, Refused, Deadmau5, Modestep, Pierce The Veil, PVRIS, Frank Carter and the Rattlesnakes, AND Wolf Alice!
And that’s it! Reading and Leeds is done for another year, and festival season is officially over for 2015. Its been a great summer.
Thanks to everyone we've met wearing Amplified t-shirts on our travels, and congrats to everyone to who got lucky playing Finders Keepers.
See you out there again next summer.

Reading and Leeds Festival is the oldest popular music festivals still in existence, and we think its still one of the best. 1 Bank Holiday Weekend, over 200 bands and 90,000 music fans. Could there be a better combination?
As always there's an amazing line-up featuring some of the biggest indie bands (such as Libertines, Alt-J, Catfish and the Bottlemen, Jamie T, the Maccabees, Wolf Alice), the coolest breaking acts (Sunset Sons, Ratboy, The One Hundred, Gengahr, Shura, Twin Peaks), and an amazing selection of electronic and crossover artists (Years & Years, Snakehips, Jacob Plant, Deadmau5).
But what Reading has always been famous for is putting on the most kick-ass rock and metal bands in the world. Enter the Saturday night main stage headline combination of Bring Me The Horizon and Metallica - The biggest Metal band of all time!
If you're heading to Reading Festival like us, we hope you have the time of your life!

This week sees the completion of Led Zeppelin's epic re-issue programme.
After the success of the first albums being re-mastered and re-packaged last year, Led Zeppelin are back with updated versions of their last 3 albums, 'Presence', 'In Through The Out Door' and what many say was Jimmy Page's favourite album, 'Coda'.

The collection comprises a mixture of 8 designs for guys and girls that include the classic RHCP logo as well as the rare 'Big Smile' t-shirt, which was used when the band headlined Woodstock, and our favourite, the 'Inca' graphic.
