It has been a busy year or so for these four young Manchester lads. Fresh from supporting the likes of Biffy Clyro, whilst gaining deserved respect from the folks at Kerrang, they have also found the time to record and independently release this, their second EP in as many years.

Fitting comfortably into place alongside the current surge of post-hardcore and emo bands, Kid Conspiracy deliver music which would have you holding aloft a lighter one minute and excitedly setting fire to the nearest person the next (don't try that at home, kids). Each track is belted out like an anthem; the soulful lead vocals (very Brandon Boyd of Incubus) add to a mature sound and leave the listener hoping that their next recording, now in progress, will be as good, if not better.

I, for one, can't wait to hear more.
