With Confidence are an Australian pop-punk band from Sydney who are signed to Hopeless Records, which in itself is a good sign of an excellent band because the Hopeless Records roster tends to be impeccable.
Spirits were high as old-school punk rockers descended on the O2 Forum Kentish Town in their droves to see a stellar lineup of live music starting at early doors of 5pm.
The Maine played an intimate show at Dingwalls and I was over the moon to be there. They are a band I have loved and followed the career of since their incarnation 11 years ago, and I have watched them grow and develop as people and as a band. I have enjoyed every show of theirs I’ve been to, with this one being no exception.
Stand Atlantic have toured with the likes of New Found Glory, State Champs, As It Is and ROAM, and have fast been making a strong name for themselves in the pop-punk scene despite still being a young band. We caught up with vocalist and guitarist Bonnie Fraser, bassist David Potter and drummer Jonno Panichi in London at their warm-up show before Slam Dunk weekend.
I first heard of Stand Atlantic whilst searching artists that would be on the Slam Dunk lineup, and realized they were the band behind ‘Mess I Made’.
Kenneths opened for INK. as the only support act for the show at Camden Assembly, and they got everyone in the mood with ease on account of being really quite good!
I first heard of Movements earlier this year when a tour announcement piqued my curiosity and so I gave a quick listen to their first full-length album Feel Something, released on Fearless Records at the end of last year.
