Bury Tomorrow – ‘Cannibal’ (Music For Nations/Sony Music)

When ‘Black Flame’ set a charge under the backside of the music industry in July 2018, catapulting Bury Tomorrow to even greater heights than before, you had to wonder how long the Southampton five piece could keep this going. It’s rare enough for a band so heavy to hit the top 40 with an album at all, never mind three consecutive times, having previously done so with ‘Runes’ in 2014 and 'Earthbound' two years later. Lesley M wonders if they they can make it a quadruple whammy with album #6...

Tonight is the aptly named “Doom Saloon” live event hosted by one of JB's favourites – Clutch, with support from Crowbar, Blacktop Mojo and Saul, all for the incredibly reasonable price of $9, which is a bit of a steal really!

With a name like Anti-Flag it doesn’t take a genius to determine that this band may get political.  Yet, the current line-up, Justin Sane (lead vocal and guitar), Chris Head (rhythm guitar/backing vocal), Chris (#2) Barker (bass) and the fantastically named Pat Thetic (drums/percussion), who have been together since 1992, have never targeted any leader or group as they have with the artwork and intro track on ‘20/20 Vision’. They clearly have no qualms about going against Trump and his policies in an upfront, direct way. Anti-Flag don’t stop at a few provocative visuals though, no – this is much deeper than that.
