Even though we love our Stateside friends, our main goal here at Already Heard to showcase and highlight the best in established and emerging UK bands.
As a result of this, each week we bring you a concise round-up of news from America.
Nevertheless we will continue to work with bands from overseas in a variety of other ways; reviews, interviews, live photos, acoustic sessions, features and more.
If you have any news to contribute to future US News Round-Up’s, e-mail us at [email protected].
