Slam Dunk Preview // Feat. Andrew McMahon, The American Scene & Sleeping With Sirens

Next up in our Slam Dunk 2013 preview series is Andrew McMahon, The American Scene and Sleeping With Sirens; another three must see acts.

To find out why you should be checking them out then click below. We'll see you at the front...

Andrew McMahon

Andrew McMahon, former front man and creator of both Jack’s Mannequin and Something Corporate, is set to headline the acoustic stage at this year’s Slam Dunk. Andrew has just announced plans to release his new solo EP, “Pop Underground” which is the first project under his own name (due out in May on his own Left Here Records).  While the EP continues to display Andrew’s distinct sound, it also helps define a new chapter for the independent artist. Definitely an intriguing headline act you will not want to miss out on! 

The American Scene

The Californian four-piece is currently taking the UK by storm on tour with The Story So Far. It is the bands first time on UK soil and they couldn't love it any more over here. Branded as pop-punk The American Scene are far more than that. With pure rock roots and certain songs with an indie, melodic element they are passionate and their live show is captivating. They may be on first at Slam Dunk but are worth getting down early for. Also stay tuned for an interview with the guys ahead of the Slam Dunk weekend!

Sleeping With Sirens

The Orlando post-hardcore five piece will take to the main stage at this year's Slam Dunk. With a reputation for an energetic stage show they are ones not to be missed. Expect a mix of classic tracks which get the crowd moving, dynamic vocals and maybe the odd acoustic song or two. And with a new album "Feel" due out at the beginning of June it will be exciting to see what the guys have to bring to Slam Dunk Festival.
