Slam Dunk 2014 – Leeds Preview

10301049_795511903792388_3211214690472506901_nFestival season has started off right for us, two weeks ago at Groezrock! As we’re recovering form a hectic Belgian weekend, we’re also getting everything that’s coming next ready, including Slam Dunk North, which will take place next week. And since we’re meticulously examining the line up, we thought why not sharing our favorite names of this year’s edition. Feel free to tell us what bands are you going to see if you’re also going!

.

Since pop-punk is a thing at the moment, we’re 1000% taking advantage of it, starting with NECK DEEP, because we’ve heard so much good stuff from them these past few months, we cannot wait to finally see them on stage!

.
Also to fit the current awesome weather, STATE CHAMPS, A LOSS FOR WORDS and REAL FRIENDS are definitely not bands to miss because they’re good. Like, really good!

.

.

Remember high school and dirty little secrets? Yes, THE ALL AMERICAN REJECTS are also here and this hadn’t happened in quite a while!

.

Playing the mainstage, one of the current finest british rock bands will also be sponsoring a day of stomach butterflies (what?) : MALLORY KNOX ladies and gentleman!

.

Freshly back with a new album ‘Wolverines’ (listen to it if you haven’t already!), I AM THE AVALANCHE will be joining MacBeth stage, alongside THE ATARIS, ZEBRAHEAD (if you’re looking for some real fun, don’t miss them!), DECADES among others.

.

More on a heavier side, LETLIVE., BURY TOMORROW, THE GHOST INSIDE, THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA will be playing the Monster stage, as well as HEART OF A COWARD, CALIBAN and I KILL THE PROM QUEEN (and solid, really solid breakdowns).

.

.

The british alternative scene is overall greatly represented and has nothing to envy to international acts, bands such as CANTERBURY, The FIRST, VERSES, LIGHT YOU UP and LANDSCAPES are the living proof of this.

.

.
And last but deifnitely NOT LEAST, this will be one of the latest occasions to watch KIDS IN GLASS HOUSES playing some tunes and they deserve a warm support, just as you guys deserve to spend a good time!

.

That’s it for now, and Leeds, we’ll see you on Saturday!

 

PS: don’t miss out on the acoustic stage as well, here’s a good argument:

I have a tendency to seek for new sounds and humbly contribute to its living. I'm a dreamer, I live for today and take the time to appreciate every single thing that life has to offer.
