Aquilo – St Pancras Old Church, 30th October

I first heard Aquilo about 6 months ago with the track ‘Part Of Your Life’.

I was immediately excited after hearing this and since then have been looking forward to the time I would see them live. Coming from the Lake District, this was their first London show, which they…

The Football World Cup in Brazil is just around the corner, with 9 days left. For you Americans out there, that’d be ‘soccer’, but for the rest of us, it’s football.

Well, Sebastian Bach sure didn’t revolutionize the music industry like he promised, but at least he’s having a lot of fun – he starred in the first episode of “Sing Your Face Off”, a new show on ABC.

But due to their huge egos and inherent misunderstandings, they’re split… and split they will stay – or will they?
