The Inbetween The Screams ‘Single of the Week’: THE PEARL HARTS – HIT THE BOTTLE

InbetweenTheScreams is immensely happy to have stumbled across this weeks Single of the Week and hereby issue a screaming declaration that you better get yourselves dug in because THE PEARL HARTS are about to kick your fucking defences down, tear your perceptions apart and fuck up your world. And you are going to FUCKING LOVE IT!!!

In rock there are a few unequivocal truths amidst a sea of smoke and mirror lies and subterfuge. Number one is… true talent will never be ignored for long, no matter how the music industry may try. Secondly…strip any decent band back to the basics and you’ll be left with a rock solid drummer and a wild heart of a front person. And that is exactly what THE PEARL HARTS is, two wolves in sheeps clothing about to rip your hearts out after leading you on the night out of a lifetime. OUTLAWS outside your front door, just waiting!

The fact that THE PEARL HARTS are in such demand by the likes of Skunk Anansie, Garbage and Stereophonics as an opening act is a clear indicator of the ability of this duo to put over a powerhouse of a sound and deliver it live, night after night and their first release off their impending debut album, HIT THE BOTTLE, is a showcase of what to expect,with Sara laying down a barrage of brutal stick work, throughout which Kirsty delivers her six string attack and vocal invocation to wanton hedonism; dirty, sweaty blues-tinged, punk-hearted, beautiful armageddon.

There are big things ahead for this band, huge things and InbetweenTheScreams can’t wait to get its hands on the album and…..

…in the meantime we are thrilled to announce that prior to the album release we will be bringing you an interview with Sara and Kirsty, digging into their past, their road to where they are, what lights their fire and trips their switches and what lies ahead.

And here is this weeks Single of The Week – THE PEARL HARTS: HIT THE BOTTLE

The InbetweenTheScreams Record of the Week: THOSE DAMN CROWS – FEAR OF THE BROKEN

I have been involved in music in one form or another for more years than I care to mention and I have to hold my hands up and admit that it is easy to become a little numbed by the continual reviews, previews and endless onslaught of music that comes into my world. So when Mik from Factory Music Management pinged me to say I really should check a band out ahead of the debut album I didn’t exactly break sweat downloading the album.

And for that I owe Those Damn Crows an apology and maybe a few litres of whatever rocket fuel this five-piece are drinking down in Bridgend.

If you had told me back in January that a debut album from a relatively unknown Welsh band of rock musicians who play rock the way it should be would be up there vying for the InbetweenTheScreams Album of the Year I would have looked at you rather quizzically with an amused smile rippling my lips. Go on with you…….away now.


Take note of this all you lovers of rock in its purest and most brutal form… in a year that has had new releases from Deftones, Killswitch Engage, Rival Sons, Anthrax, Beartooth, Volbeat, Megadeth, Prong, The Cult and the mighty Katatonia….. and many more, all bands I hold in the highest esteem as the pinnacle of what floats my boat, the forthcoming debut album MURDER AND THE MOTIVE from Those Damn Crows is up there in the top tier of releases. And despite some monumental albums due for release in the coming months, including the mouth-watering release from ADTR, I simply cannot see anything knocking this riff-fest of a storming album out of the top three albums of the year.



I will be doing a full album review soon (watch the usual channels for details) but in the meantime check out an early release from the album, FEAR OF THE BROKEN



Shane Greenhall – Vocals

Ian ‘Shiner’ Thomas – Guitar

Ronnie Huxford – Drums

Lloyd Wood – Bass

David Winchurch – Guitar

These guys are building up a mighty noise for themselves in the music media and deservedly so and this album will make you realise why. A stop you dead in your tracks monster of an album that combines a vocalist that is almost untouchable in modern rock and a band delivering the type of aural walls of brutal yet melodic rock that headline bands selling out festivals would kill for.


MURDER AND THE MOTIVE is released on the 26th September

Check back soon for the full review.

Keep it LOUD!!!

InbetweenTheScreams Former Record of the Week: Where There’s Life – Bright

Where Theres Life


Please put your hands together for this weeks InbetweenTheScreams Record of the Week from Edinburgh’s Pop Punk powerhouse Where There’s Life with the anthemic song, Bright

Where There’s Life are a 5 piece band from Edinburgh blending upbeat pop punk and anthemic chorus sections with the heavy breakdowns and screamed vocals found in metal and hardcore to create a melodic, catchy and energetic sound akin to bands such as Four Year Strong, A Day To Remember and The Ghost Inside. Described by RockSound as “a cross between A Day To Remember and New Found Glory in the best possible way”.
Formed in early 2015, the band spent the first half of the year writing and producing their debut self titled EP. After it’s release in May, the EP was extremely well received with a feature on the Revival Media website alongside the likes of Lower Than Atlantis and State Champs and a mention in Rock Sound magazine’s feature on up and coming Scottish music.
You can stream or download the EP for free via their Bandcamp site:  CLICK HERE
