Anchors are a five-piece punk band from Melbourne. The band formed in 2008 and has since released two full-length records. In late 2010 the band released, Bad Juju, which was later released in 2011 on vinyl through Creator Destructor Records. They released their second full-length, Lost at the Bottom of the World, last year. Their newest record features twelve new songs of aggressive punk and rock with some key tracks that slow down to make room to breath, but make for a great sing-along (check out the album HERE). They made their way through the states last year and are just consistently playing show after show. Check out other tunes on Episode 14, Episode 22, and the Top 25 show of 2011. Anchor's song on this episode is titled, Lazarus Sign, off of their newest album, Lost at the Bottom of the World.

The four songs that make up the EP are fast, melodic tunes with a bit of technicality and aggressiveness in their riffs.

Two years later they released two songs that were featured on a split with Creeper (listen to the tracks HERE). Watch some live footage of their set at Skeletal Lightning Fest HERE.

5. No Contest
No Contest are a four-piece punk band from Grimsby in the northern part of England. They just released a new two song EP (Jacob's Ladder and Firework) featuring some new voices. It's a really nice progression from their previous releases, the Static Motion EP (check out a couple tracks on EPISODE 23 and EPISODE 36) and their debut record, What's Past is Prologue (listen to a track on EPISODE 52). They still keep up with their punk and hardcore styles - fast and melodic. The band has a bunch of shows in the coming weeks. This one is coming up real fast with a pretty fantastic line up of bands.
