Sickness is an album full of post-hardcore fury with flavours of melodic ambience, making for an exhilarating listen and showcasing a band that has matured leaps and bounds both musically and lyrically, fuelling a new-found fire in the CREATE TO INSPIRE machine.
Watch the band’s video for ‘Blue’:
Bands that well and truly hit you at the core – whether it’s through crushing heaviness or pure emotional atmosphere – are very hard to come by nowadays, yet CANVAS’ take on post-hardcore is as hard-hitting as it gets. Not ones to shy away from getting their hands dirty within their own creations and taking a heavy DIY approach, the quintet have spent the last couple of years jumping in their van and playing shows anywhere and everywhere from clubs and houses, to garages and practice spaces.

Liverpool-based four-piece SKYWALKER crush speed and aggression with melodic hooks and bouncy choruses. They firmly put themselves in the skate punk scene, taking their emotional post-hardcore inspiration from the likes of Crooks and Counterparts, whilst retaining the strength of their massive pop-punkesque choruses that wouldn’t look at out of place in a Neck Deep track. Unstoppable drive and determination has quickly built SKYWALKER a strong fanbase across Europe, and earned them shows alongside the likes of NOFX, Madball, Anti-Flag, Limp Bizkit and more.
