Introducing... Glory Fades

glory fades, late in the day, alt rock, wolverhampton, rock, grunge, underground, under, ground, glory, fades, message, 606

Glory Fades are an alternative rock band from Wolverhampton, despite being very time poor they have found the time to craft a brand new EP, Late in the Day, and it's very good. There's clearly some heavier influences with the song Message being my personal favourite on the EP, there's a plethora of influences on this EP and if you're looking for some very grungy, underground alt-rock then I'd definitely recommend checking out their new EP!

Question. The EP has been out a few weeks now, how do you guys feel about that?
Glory Fades:
We are excited. Its been a long time coming so its great to have our tracks out there.

Q.Do you get nervous or excited before release?
GF:
It was our first release and we are/have been very excited. No nerves about the release at all

Q. Which musician would you say was the biggest influence on the EP?
GF:
I'm not sure really, as a band we all have different influences and listen to a lot of different music. No one/ band in particular has influenced it more than the other

Q. What's the meaning behind the title of the EP (Late in the Day)?
GF:
We found naming the EP really tough. Firstly we thought it sounded good. It made a lot of sense as this is something we have all wanted to do for a long time and finally accomplished it. We aren't kids anymore so felt like it was a long time coming! 

Q. How would you describe the EP?
GF:
That's tough, we'll leave that to you or anyone listening to it!

Q. What was the biggest hinderance of making an EP?
GF:
The biggest hinderance is probably time and money. We all have jobs, families and general commitments which make it tough to get enough time all together to get the ep recorded. Its not cheap making a record

Q. What's the best thing about being a part of Glory Days?
GF:
The best thing is probably getting to hang out with great mates doing something we love.

Q. What artists/albums are you listening to the most lately?
GF:
Across the band we are listening to lots of different music, Thrice and Brand New are generally always being listened to. The Front Bottoms, Microwave, Jimmy Eat Word, stuff like that

Q. What are your live shows like?
GF:
Rare! we have only got a few under our belts to date but we are keen to start gigging more frequently. 

Q. What's your favourite live show?
GF:
Favourite live show is tough, Everyone has different favourites, We all love festivals in general Festivals is a big aim for the band.

Q. Which song do you wish you'd written, and why?
GF:
Limousine by Brand New. Its simply just an amazing track!

Q. Now the EP has been released, what's next for the band?
GF:
We are currently booking some gigs in and trying to get our music heard. We have also started writing tracks for the next EP. Wr are hoping to start recording it before the end of the year.

TOP 50 ALBUMS OF THE YEAR 2017!

50. LCD Soundsystem - American Dream  LCD Soundsystem returned this year after a long time being split up, and it was the year of reunions with everyone seeming to put their differences aside and rake in their money with a big tour. However, LCD produced one of the stand out albums of the year, a side step from their previous projects and produced more anthemic songs. There's some real stand out tracks of the year on this album, it's just a shame about that Microsoft Paint cover.
49.The Mothers Earth Experiment - The Mothers Earth Experiment
I'm not the biggest fan of Prog Rock, but then again maybe I'm just not listening to the right stuff. However, TMEE fall into this genre and they've released one of my albums of the year. Whilst chatting to them about it as part of my 'Introducing...' series it was extremely interesting to hear about the making of the album, it's big influences and that strangely wonderful album cover. A must listen for Prog Rock fan…

Introducing... Space4Lease

Whether you like it or not Psych Rock is back... with a vengeance. There's so many bands bursting on to the scene at the moment and one of the most exciting is Space4Lease. It's hard to describe their music other than saying it's the bands personality, incarnate. Recent single, If It's True, is probably one of their best to date with a strong, power ballad feeling yet such raw emotion behind it. Space4Lease are really catapulting themselves into super stardom and it's time to jump on the bandwagon.

Q. Firstly, the age old question of what does your name mean and where did it come
from?
Walt Blythe: It can be a pretty uninteresting story haha. In March/April of 2014,
Grayson and I were freshly writing songs and not yet playing shows. We had been
recording but hadn’t settled on a band name. As we were driving back to Brandon’s
studio after taking a break to brainstorm ideas, we happened to drive past a sign that
read Space For Lease. We weren’t sure on it at first but …

Introducing... NAMES

NAMES are a band hailing from Wales, a music scene that appears to be bursting at the seams at the moment with phenomenal acts such as Boy Azooga, Estrons & We're No Heroes it's easy to see why a lot of labels are focusing their attention on that area. NAMES are different though, more sincere and genuine than a lot of musical acts out there with a voice to die for and the melodies to match. Their single "Limb By Limb" is an absolute cracker and I recommend checking it out immediately.

Question. Why did you call yourselves NAMES?
Ioan Hazell:
We always felt that Names had a refreshing sense of anonymity (it was also what we had written as the title of the list of potential band names.
Joey Robbins: The fact that it's such an unusual name, and the kind of mysterious vibe it carries appealed to us.

Q. Was there ever the thought process that it was never going to get you to the top of a google search?
IH:
Yeah, thats an unfortunate truth of it, it forces people to le…
