Volcanoes vs. Hardcore

Wow, I’ve already been neglecting my blog…sorry. April was a crazy month filled with amazing bands and volcanic ash. Unless you’ve been living under a rock I assume everyone is well aware of the ash cloud that was smothering Europe and shut down airspace, causing panic for over a week. I’m happy that our air is cleaner…

I’ve been a busy bee, spent the first half of the month in London covering AFI‘s return to Europe with a brilliant show at Brixton Academy (you can read my review in next months Rock Zone magazine). Once again, I had the pleasure of interviewing the fabulous Davey Havok (also for Rock Zone). We spoke about the making of ‘Sing The Sorrow‘. Some interesting points were revealed, so look out for that issue.

While in London, I also interviewed and photographed Dan Smith of The Dear & Departed. If you haven’t heard their new record ‘Chapters‘, go get it now! Trust me, you’ll love it. We had a chat about his musical influences, his record collection, our mutual love of Morrissey and his wicked tattoos. In case you didn’t know, Dan is also a tattooer currently working at High Voltage on La Brea in Los Angeles (you can also check him out alongside Kat Von D on the show LA Ink). So, if you’re in the area, drop by the shop.

I just about recovered from an insane weekend at Groezrock in Belgium, a two-day festival that almost got ruined by the volcano incident. Hung out with friends and shot some legendary punk/hardcore bands: Bad Religion, H2O, AFI, Pennywise and The Bronx to name a few.

All photos will be posted on my website shortly, so keep your eyes peeled, but for now, I leave you with the most memorable moment of Groezrock 2010, ‘What Happened’ during H2O’s set (I was on stage, it was EPIC):
