Enter Shikari release new track ‘Losing My Grip’ featuring Jason Butler of Fever 333, the first new music from them in 2024, following the band’s biggest year to date with the release of their album ‘A Kiss for the Whole World’ and the announcement of a huge world tour (that will include Fever 333 as support for all dates in UK and Europe)!

Gary’s albums of the year venture away from our more standard metal selection with a bunch of stellar punk releases from bands like The Bar Stool Preachers, Grade 2, The Darts, The Dollyrots, Rumkicks and Rancid, but also sidesteps into other music like the special brand of rock that Public Image Ltd. brings, blues rock with Samantha Fish and Jesse Dayton, an acoustic Dropkick Murphys and a trip back into time, reminiscing about London’s legendary Batcave Club!

The Australian Pink Floyd Show proved in Munich that perfect copy exists, dedicating the show to Pink Floyd’s ‘The Dark Side of the Moon’ and some of their biggest hits!

Skindred, a Welsh reggae metal band, were warming up a sold-out Schleyerhalle for VOLBEAT, and we had the opportunity to take some photos of their extraordinary performance for the German crowd.

Jennifer Batten

Jennifer Batten recently did a club tour in Europe. We went to see her at her stop in Zaal Goedleven in Ghent, Belgium and were pleasantly surprised by a night filled with pop and rock classics by a music legend.

The Canadian cult band Godspeed You! Black Emperor created a night of worship at the Muffathalle, Munich with support from Tashi Dorji. A night our photographer won’t be forgetting any time soon!
