Sometimes, when everything seems like it’s all gone to shit, there’s no better cure than an epic singalong, something which The Inside Is Live provide in bucketfuls. Playing in support of their critically acclaimed debut album The Great Brand New (4/5 Hit The Floor; 4/5 Stereoboard), The Inside Is Live serve up a tasty combination of thunderously hairy guitar riffs, anthemic choruses, and vocals gravelly enough to put hairs on your chest and whisky in your glass.

A potent blend treading the fine line between alternative rock and metal, The Great Brand New is a chest-bursting, lung-emptying record. An album full of earnest attitude, from the raucousness of ‘Brittle Bones’, to the soaring, strutting ‘Forever’, this is a truly infectious and ear-catching 35 minute journey.
There’s no denying there is an unquestionable sense of swagger about this album, reminiscent of the best old school US hard rock, albeit stamped with a categorically British identity, showcased via Michael Denby’s beautifully hoarse and powerful vocals. No strangers to the stage, having played alongside We Are The In Crowd, Don Broco, and Bleed From Within, The Inside Is Live are raring to take The Great Brand New travelling.
