The band is a formidable live force. Led by singer and guitarist Tom Hamilton- a frontman who could easily find his way into future pop textbooks as one of rock n’ roll’s infamous kindred spirits- Little Triggers have mastered the rock n’ roll art form whilst living up to the demands of its lifestyle. Choosing to evade the tiresome indie platitudes of their contemporaries, Hamilton and co have mastered the fine art of balancing nostalgia with innovation.

4. Healthy Junkies
Mixing Punk Rock with Grunge, Psychedelic Rock, New Wave, Garage Rock and Goth, add a soupçon of theatre and you have Healthy Junkies. Glamorous yet rebel lead punkster Nina Courson moved to London after she ran away from home to pursue her own rock n roll rite of passage.. Destiny awaited when she found guitarist Phil-Honey-Jones who at the time was in a psychedelic rock – outfit named Nurotica. Phil had left his dysfunctional home as a young lad as well, and the two went on their way seeking solace in the world of music. Naming the band Healthy Junkies, reflecting the mental health epidemic currently spreading like wildfire through the core of the western society.
5. The World Over
Comprised of guitarist Ryan Knecht, bassist Juan Arguello, drummer Alejandro Mercado and led by the dynamic frontwoman, Tiaday Ball, The World Over has created a buzz that has resonated throughout the rock/metal world since the release of their first EP, Rampart District, in 2014. The single, “Swervewolf,” racked up well over 100k YouTube views and made a lasting impact on fans and critics alike with 800k views on their channel in total.
But, it was the release of Mountains (2017) that kicked down major doors for the band. The five-song EP was inspired by the lives of the band members. The title-track was inspired by a toxic friendship and the idea that sometimes in trying to save someone else, you can lose yourself. The popular video debuted on Tattoo.com and numerous popular rock fanzines. The success of Mountains has stretched past touring with Escape the Fate in the UK and Europe, Otep for two tours across the U.S. and even earned The World Over a spot on the very last Vans Warped Tour in 2018 rocking out for 7 shows alongside bands like Simple Plan, The Used, Chelsea Grin and 3oh3!.
