The Ghost Inside Involved In Head-On Collision


American hardcore band The Ghost Inside have been involved in a pretty horrific bus accident just outside El Paso, Texas, where their bus driver, and the driver of the colliding truck, sadly didn’t make it.

The band have released a statement stating the band and crew are alive and safe, though all have been taken into medical care. Our thoughts are with the band and their families, and the drivers’ families too.

The music community have set up a Go-Fund page to help raise some funds to support the bands medical costs. They have also lost all their equipment in the accident, and part of the funds will go towards the driver’s family too. If you wish to donate, or just spread the word, you can visit the page here.

Get better soon The Ghost Inside!


COMPETITION CLOSED. Uncle Acid and the Deadbeats, Whelans Nov 20th


Gothy cult punkers Uncle Acid and the Deadbeats are hitting Whelans on November 20th – and we’re giving away a pair of tickets!

Hailing from Hell (apparently) this shoe-gazey punk/rock band are on their biggest tour yet with their fourth album The Night Creeper. If you can imagine a cross between QOTSA, Sex Bob-omb (the Scott Pilgrim band) and Smashing Pumpkins, you’ll get somewhere near to where these guys reside. Their website is also trippy as  f%!#!

Head over to our Twitter or Facebook to check out more details! And if you’re not lucky enough to win any, tickets are still available over on

See you there!

Neck Deep go acoustic

Neck Deep have recorded an acoustic version of Lime Street as part of the Renaissance Hotel’s Play To Stay competition where bands get to stay free if they make a music video in the hotel. The video with the most views by the 15th wins a $10,000 Mariott gift card. Pretty sweet prize! Keep watching to help them out!
