Scottish pop-punk newcomers, WOES have been more than just making waves this year. With their new EP, Self Help, having dropped last Friday via UNFD, and as one of the most anticipated bands for this year’s SLAM DUNK FESTIVAL, it seems only right that we hand it to them to choose their TOP NEW UNDISCOVERED ARTISTS! 

LOATHE – IMPERICON STAGE

Loathe are great, one moment they sound like Marilyn Manson, the next they sound like the most crucial, cutting-edge heavy band in the world. They’re on straight after us I think, so look out for us building a sweaty human pyramid in the mosh pit during their set.”

STAND ATLANTIC – ROCK SOUND BREAKOUT STAGE

“Stand Atlantic are a bunch of absolute QTs who have absolutely blown up over the last year. We really dig their songwriting and managed to catch them last year supporting Roam and thought they killed it. This is probably their last festival season as an ‘up and coming band’ so looking forward to catching them on a small stage before they start gracing main stages next year.” 

CAN’T SWIM – SIGNATURE BREW STAGE 

“Can’t Swim blend what we like about punk rock with modern pop music. They hit hard, heavy and they’re super catchy. After seeing them a couple times over the last year and getting the opportunity to say hello. We’re really excited to see how they’ve developed over the last year and how it’s even possible for them to get any better!”

DREAM STATE – ROCKSOUND BREAKOUT STAGE

“Dream State is just a great fucking rock band who don’t fall into the modern rock trap of sounding like everything else out there. We’re both on UNFD but shockingly we’ve never crossed paths! We’ve heard great things about their live show, so hopefully, they’re as good at drinking as they are playing!”


LUKE RAINSFORD – THE KEY CLUB ACOUSTIC STAGE 

“Luke is a great dude, who’s taken a real DIY approach to touring and releasing music over the last few years. We’ve seen him a few times and his shows are always intimate, fun and emotional. Looking forward to seeing him work a big crowd!”
