Veritas Festival Preview

The second Veritas Festival will be held on the 15th April 2017 at The Woolpack in Doncaster, hosted by the guys over at Veritas Promotions, they have been holding gigs in Yorkshire for just over a year. They have held gigs in the infamous The Parish in Huddersfield, Verve  Bar and Santiagos bar in Leeds and their regular event is held at The Woolpack in Doncaster. Just to make the whole day that much sweeter, it’s FREE ENTRY but there will be collection buckets around the festival collecting money in aid of MIND.



The second Veritas Festival has a whole host of amazing acts from up and down the country. As headliners they have the amazing Brawlers, grudge rockers Treason Kings will also be performing at this year’s festival, alongside Birmingham alt rock band Youth Man.


Brawlers made their comeback on the 25th March at Strikeback Festival after a 5 month hiatus which was announced by a couple of cryptic Facebook posts which caused a lot of worry for fans of the band.

Musicology Personal Pick

At this year’s festival we have decided to pick an act we think you should check out, not only for their incredible stage presence but for their unique music videos, their heart pounding basslines and heavy riffs.

Our pick is the outstanding Skull.

These bearded rockers bring their high energy performance and exceptional solos to every single gig they play. With their Doom Blues sound they always leave the crowd wanting more. You can check out the video for their track Lightswitch below:

Sharp/Shock Release Debut Album

UK/US hybrid band Sharp/Shock have released their debut album today on Alkaline Trio’s own label Heart&Skull Records.

Label co-owner Matt Skiba said of the band “It is an absolute honor to welcome Sharp/Shock to the Heart&Skull family. We started our label to not only put out our own releases but to also release music by people we consider close friends. Family. In a business that is growing exceedingly difficult to find true allies in, we are proud to offer a situation for artists in which the most important goal is to publish great art by great people. To have Sharp/Shock as our maiden partnership in this venture is something we have always hoped for but until recently, haven’t imagined. From the first time we heard their record we knew that they were a perfect fit. We are extremely thankful that they felt the same way. It is an amazing feeling to help such a great group of people put out this amazing record via Heart&Skull.”

The album is available to stream over at and to purchase at Bigcartel and iTunes.
