Early Reviews:

“this band is that they are so good at what they do, and after twelve albums since 1995, they have earned the right to be leaders of this particular pack. Check out Brain Invaders – its infectious, catchy, imaginative and bloody fantastic. A sonic attack on the sense that you won’t want to recover from.” – Vents Magazine

“Since 2006’s ‘Broadcast to the World,’ Zebrahead have put out a couple of catchy pop-punk records. With their latest release, ‘Brain Invaders,’ Zebrahead has ditched their usual sound for a harder one, reminiscent of their incredible 2003 record, ‘MFZB.’ While the relatable lyrics are plentiful, and the raps more on point than ever, ‘Brain Invaders’ is definitely more Sum 41 (‘Does This Look Infected?’) than Simple Plan (‘No Pads, No Helmets … Just Balls’).” – Bionic Buzz

“Brain Invaders’ is an album that is, most importantly, genuinely great, it is sure to appeal to people that have been following the band since the beginning as well as today’s youth.” – Subba Cultcha

Countdown begins to new Zebrahead EP and 2023 tour

Zebrahead punk-rap band from California

The US punk-rap band will release the 'II' EP in February.

Long-running Californian punk-rap band Zebrahead will soon follow 2021’s ‘III’ EP with the ‘II’ EP, and a ‘I’ EP expected in the autumn.

Tracks for all three collections come from one long studio session. From those selected for EP ‘II’, ‘ Envy Anonymous ‘ was released last month and the band have just shared ‘ Middle Seat Blues ‘.

Vocalist/guitarist Adrian Estrella said of their latest song’s meaning: “Surround yourself with quality, not quantity, not everyone around you has your best interests in mind, ‘ Middle Seat Blues ‘ is about just that!”

Bassist Ben Osmundson added: “Imagine a song that combines a bit of metal, a bit of laid-back groove, and splashes a bit of punk on top. Hard to imagine right? Well, give ‘ Middle Seat Blues ‘ a listen.”

The Grammy-nominated Orange County band is also making plans “to tour throughout 2023”, with appearances at Slam Dunk and When We Were Young festivals already confirmed.

Taylor Swift's first UK Eras Tour show leaves fans stunned - from surprise songs to romantic proposal

The Eras Tour made it to the United Kingdom - with Taylor Swift kicking things off in Edinburgh, Scotland.

Swift took her tour internationally with the European leg beginning on May 9th in Paris and now she came to the UK to start off the 15 shows she is going to do there. Her first tour spot in the region was Edinburgh , Scotland which was the first of three show in Murrayfield Stadium from June 7 to 9. Rock band Paramore also joined her as the supporting act which they continue to do for the European portion of the tour.

First night of the Edinburgh run was filled with surprises from the pop star singing surprise songs, rocking a new outfit to ones she didn't expect nor her fans such as technical difficulties, injuries and fan troubles.

Click here to follow the Mirror US on Google News to stay up to date with all the latest news, sport and entertainment stories.

Surprise Songs

Taylor performed two surprise mashups of songs from previous albums that had fans both excited and confused by the song choices. The Pennsylvania native performed a guitar mashup of Would've, Could've, Should've from Midnights 3am Edition and I Know Places from 1989. The second one was a piano mashup of 'Tis the Damn Season from Evermore and Daylight from Lover.

New Outfit Change

The singer-songwriter debuted a new look for 1989 which was a a sparkly orange ombre cropped top with a high-waisted pink gradient skirt. She wore matching boots, where one boot was orange and the other one was pink. Fans loved the new look as they praised the outfit and also made observations that the new pieces echo the color scheme of Taylor's two-piece ensemble at the 2016 Grammys.

Technical Difficulties

During a performance of Lover, as she was playing her blue guitar, the screen which behaves as a backdrop for her concerts to display gorgeous images as well as graphics and as a way for people from all parts of the venue see what's happening on stage, had issues. The screen went black and pixelated at some parts. Fans said that "Lover House" which is a frequent visual used on the tour, looked a bit off, The "Lover House" is a set piece that is a house which represents different albums in each room.

An engagement

While on stage performing her Folklore era, she spotted someone getting down on one knee in the crowd. According to social media, the couple got engaged while she was singing and Taylor was all smiles and "having so much fun" as she told the crowd that she never gets to see that happen. It was reported that she said: “Congratulations. Wow. Man that’s amazing. Thank you for doing that at my concert. That’s a big moment. Huge.”

Taylor Stopped the Show

The 34-year-old again stopped her Would've Could've Should've with I Know Places mashup when she noticed fans in need of assistance in the front. She did not continue performing but strummed her guitar as she waited for confirmation that they were okay. "I’m just gonna keep playing until someone notices them. We’re not going to keep singing. We’re going to keep talking until the people in front of me get help," she told the crowd. Eventually the medical team checked on the fans, Taylor checked in with, "Are we good?" Then once she got confirmation and reassurance, she replied "Awesome," and resumed the performance

Taylor's Hand Cramp

It was the second unexpected interruption during the rendition of Would've Could've Should've with I Know Places mashup but as Taylor was playing the acoustic guitar her hand cramped up which caused her to stop playing. She announced to the audience as seen in a fan video: "My hand is frozen in a weird cramp." Taylor rubbed her hands together and massaged them. She called the moment "embarrassing" but fans cheered her on as they waited for her and she recommenced.

Powered by singles like “In Ha Mood” and “Princess Diana,” as well as the deluxe edition of her Like..? EP, she’s collected more than 2.5 billion streams, multiple top 5 Hot 100 singles, and four Grammy nominations, including nods for Best New Artist, Best Rap Song, Best Pop Duo/Group Performance, and Best Song Written for Visual Media. More symbolically, she’s become an emblem of the new Big Apple, a fact that isn’t lost on the media.

Writing for The New York Times, Maya Salam listed Ice Spice as the breakout pop artist of 2023, citing her “cool, confident, raw” signature sound. Meanwhile, Variety’ listed Like..? as her fourth favorite project of last year, praising her “sharpshooter flow” and her all-around versatility on the project. For their part, Billboard named Ice Spice 2023’s Rookie of the Year. It’s all part of a calculated level up at the intersection of planning, distinctive style and unfailing belief. As Rolling Stone put it, “it’s already tough to imagine we ever lived in a world without her.”

Ice Spice’s breakout really began with “Munch (Feelin’ U),” a track that quickly became a playgirl’s dancefloor bat signal. The song earned Ice Spice her first RIAA-certified Gold plaque before amassing nearly 120 million Spotify streams. After initially releasing the song and its follow-up, “Bikini Bottom,” she signed a deal with Capitol Records and 10k Projects. From there, she fortified her buzz with “In Ha Mood” and the Lil Tjay-assisted “Gangsta Boo.” Both tracks landed on her debut EP, Like..?, a critically acclaimed project that crystallized her star status.

The hits have only continued to pile up. In February 2023, Ice Spice appeared on “Boy’s a Liar Pt. 2,” a PinkPantheress single that’s equal parts infectious and emotionally vulnerable. That March, it peaked at No. 3 on the Billboard Hot 100. Then came the “Princess Diana” remix with her idol Nicki Minaj. All of that was before she guested on Taylor Swift’s 2023 single, “Karma,” which hit No. 2 on the Hot 100. Ice Spice parlayed that popularity surge into 12 performances as Doja Cat’s opening act for The Scarlet Tour. It was her first time performing in arenas, which has set her up for even bigger stages, like Coachella, which she’ll hit in April 2024.

Her musical impact has only made her a ubiquitous cultural force. Last year, she appeared as the star of Kim Kardashian’s SKIMS campaign, with her fly everygirl persona making her a perfect fit for an emerging fashion powerhouse. That summer, she teamed up with Nicki Minaj again for “Barbie World,” a single that belonged to the Barbie soundtrack. A flurry of effervescent pop, the track peaked at No. 7 on the Hot 100 chart. She also appeared alongside Ben Affleck for a Dunkin’ commercial introducing her MUNCHKIN Drink, a frozen treat named after her dedicated fan base. Malleable enough to oscillate among brands, genres, and fans, it’s no surprise that Google announced Ice Spice as the second-most searched musician of 2023. Her level-up isn’t stopping anytime soon. With her debut album on the way, Ice Spice plans to continue to make varied soundscapes her playground.

Well that's all from us tonight, thank you for following along. 

If you are heading back from Murrayfield Stadium, get home safe, and if you're already in bed, have a good sleep.

Rest those vocal cords Swifties - Tay Tay will be back tomorrow. 

Sadly, the show has come to an end. 

Taylor Swift fans will definitely be hoarse tomorrow after constantly singing, cheering and shouting for more than three hours. 

Before we close our live coverage, here's a look at some of the best pictures from tonight's concert...

By Katie Spencer , arts and entertainment correspondent at Murrayfield Stadium 

Taylor Swift has smashed a triumphant set in front of enormous crowds in Edinburgh on her record-breaking Eras tour, telling fans it was "the wildest way to welcome a lass". 

As she welcomed the crowd, she announced it was officially the highest attended stadium show in Scottish history.

"Oh hi," she casually told the more than 70,000 people who came to see her perform.

The 34-year-old star initially took to the stage in a diamante encrusted corseted leotard and bejewelled cowboy boots.

She later admitted: "This tour has been the most fun I've had in my entire life….my one regret now is that I really should have come to perform in Scotland more.

"I can't stop staring at you, I'm captivated by this audience."

Blasting through her biggest hits in a set of 40+ songs, on stage for more than three hours, she promised to take fans on a "grand adventure" they'd never forget. She certainly did that.

"After tonight, you're going to think about us and the memories we made," she promised.

The evening was "unforgettable", she told the crowd, while her last song of the night, Karma, was dedicated to the crowd.

"Edinburgh you have given us everything you could possibly give us tonight."

It was a pinch yourself evening for Swifties fortunate enough to get a ticket. Lyrics memorised, costumes perfected.

The show a musical marathon which demonstrated not only why Swift is arguably one of the greatest songwriters of modern pop music but also one of the world's most accomplished performers.

The show itself, paced perfectly to hold the audience's interest with slick dance routines and theatrical, at times fantastical, staging.

The screams of support for her most famous hits were deafening. Countless fans leaving Murrayfield hoarse after she told the story of her eight Eras whilst delivering the ultimate singalong.

This was a long day for many, a hardened few sat outside since dawn to be among the first in-line to secure a front row spot.

"Anything's worth it for Taylor," Julia had told me at 7am outside the stadium. Her friend admitting she'd "sell my kidneys, probably both lungs" to get close to the star.

Why does she elicit such a reaction? Despite her billionaire status, Swift has somehow remained an artist whose voice remains real, authentic and honest.

Her songwriting - a shared diary of sorts - resonating all the more for her openness about her flaws, bad break-ups, sharing with fans not only the joy of falling in love, but the heartbreak.

The crowd at Murrayfield were word-perfect for her hits like You Belong With Me, the stadium echoing with noise during We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together

If performing songs from her Tortured Poets Department Era - her latest album written about her ill-fated London loves - took on more poignancy for Swift this being the UK leg of her tour, she gave no indication on stage.

An all but faultless performance but for the acoustic section of her show, where the star was forced to briefly stop playing the guitar, saying: "My hand has frozen in a weird cramp... this is so embarrassing... its like performing with a claw. No one relates."

While it's understandable that many balk at the stupidly expensive price of some VIP packages, few could question Taylor's commitment to offering her fans the ultimate experience. The confetti canons and fireworks, a needless distraction really from what she does best - singing out.

A one-woman economy boosting machine, Swift's 15 UK shows are projected by some to boost the UK economy by almost £1bn with fans shelling out, not only on tickets, but accommodation, travel, and pre-show parties.

I spoke to people who travelled here from Spain, The Netherlands, America, India and even Australia.

Fans who'd spent months planning their costumes, painstakingly threading bracelets, embroidering jackets, which is undoubtedly half the fun.

While this level of pop obsession is nothing new, that one artist can still achieve this in an age where we are swamped with musical choice speaks volumes as to the power of Swift's music.

Forget about politicians touring the country, Taylor Swift's whereabouts will be what's dominating the national conversation for vast swathes of the country over the next month.

While some may scoff at the tweeness of swapping friendship bracelets, dressing-up and glitter - there is a delightfulness to being a part of the Swift crowd which is a warm and welcoming world.

Swift's proving herself to be, not only a prolific songwriter, but the ultimate showwoman.

That's it Swifties, the first UK Eras tour show has come to an end.

Taylor Swift closed Murrayfield Stadium with a huge confetti cannon display as she performed Karma for her adoring fans. 

The superstar has been performing for more than three hours and the crowd has spent that time cheering, clapping and singing their hearts out. 

She will be back at the stadium for another show tomorrow night, and the night after, being moving on to Anfield Stadium in Liverpool. 

Rewinding slightly to the start of the show, here's the moment Taylor Swift spoke to her fans in Edinburgh during her opening act. 

The superstar welcomed them to the Eras tour, telling them the last time she was in Scotland was more than a decade ago. 

"Tonight's concert is the most highly attended show in Scottish history," she said. 

"This is the wildest way to welcome a lass to your city." 

Murrayfield Stadium was lit up by fans during Taylor Swift's performance of Daylight from her Lover album. 

Thousands of fans held up their glowing bracelets and phones during the song. 

Here's a clip...

The show is almost coming to an end and Swift is going out in her Midnights era. 

She kicks off with a rendition of Lavender Haze, emerging on the stage in a faux fur purple coat and black knee-high boots. 

Taylor has moved to her acoustic section now - a moment fans have been waiting for. 

This is the time the superstar performs two surprise tracks, which change at every show. 

Many had thought she might pick Castles Crumbling from Speak Now as a reference to Edinburgh Castle.

But as she begins the set, with Would've Should've Could've from Midnights, she is forced to briefly stop playing her guitar. 

"My hand has frozen in a weird cramp…this is so embarrassing….its like performing with a claw," she tells the crowd.

"No one relates." 

 By Jenness Mitchell , Scotland reporter

A baker has created a Swift-themed cake to celebrate the star's arrival and is hoping it makes it to her. 

Cathryn Klawikowska, 34, took eight hours to bake the nine-layer red velvet treat.

Edyta Matysiak took three days to make the figurine.

Ms Klawikowska, head designer at 3D Cakes near Murrayfield, hopes it will end up backstage at the stadium.

She added: "I'm hoping to get this to Taylor though."

Swift turns now to her latest album - the Tortured Poets Department. 

She kicks off the era with But Daddy I Love Him and comes out wearing a gorgeous white gown covered in lyrics. 

"I love you, it's ruining my life" can be seen across it - lyrics from her biggest hit of the album Fortnight.

‘Scottish Swifties party hard’: Taylor Swift kicks off the UK leg of her Eras Tour in Edinburgh

The independent spoke to fans who had journeyed from as far as texas and toronto for taylor’s first uk eras tour show, article bookmarked.

It’s the biggest show on Earth : over a billion dollars in revenue, millions of fans, and even more friendship bracelets. On a sun-dappled Friday evening in Edinburgh, Taylor Swift’s record-breaking Eras Tour landed in the UK.

All around the city, local businesses got into the spirit of Swiftmania. Hotel lobbies were decorated with balloons, streamers, and cardboard cutouts of the US singer. On every corner, hit singles such as the wistful synth-pop of “All You Had to Do Was Stay” and the defiant bop “Shake It Off” were blasted from pub speakers.

Over a year since the opening concert in Arizona, Swift, 34, finally touched down in the UK, for the first of three nights at Murrayfield Stadium in Edinburgh where hundreds of fans had camped the night before as they vied for a spot in front of the stage. Along the route, vendors flogged pink cowboy hats, feather boas, and heart-shaped sunglasses.

Outside the venue, however, Swifties were already donning their best outfits that often referenced one of the pop star’s various “eras”. There were shades of bright scarlet and deep crimson paying homage to Swift’s 2012 record, Red , while others dressed in dark glittering indigo and lavender in a nod to 2022’s Midnights . Soft pastel tones and sequins represented her hit album Lover , while her twin records Folklore and Evermore inspired swathes of white lace and earthy colours in the crowd.

Speaking to The Independent ahead of the show, Hannah, 33, said she had travelled from Texas to see Swift, citing cheaper tickets and her “very wonderful boyfriend”.

It was the first time she would be seeing the singer live. “It’s incredible,” Hannah said. “Everyone is so kind, it feels like family. It’s the most welcoming atmosphere you could imagine.”

Tom, 28, from Edinburgh, fell in love with Swift’s music a few years ago, after hearing the dreamy, Eighties-influenced “Style”. He stood outside the stadium wearing a hot pink cowboy hat, grinning as fans filtered past. “This is my first show,” he said. “I came on my own, I literally bought a ticket last minute today. I can’t believe I’m here.”

The frenzy over Swift’s show has drawn comparisons to Beatlemania, with attention this time directed not at a Fab Four but at the lone figure who strode out onto the stage in her shimmering sequined bodysuit. Beaming, Swift launched into a dazzling opening salvo comprising songs from her 2019 record Lover .

“We’ve checked this about 20 times,” she said, addressing her adoring audience, “and this is the biggest stadium in Scottish history.” 73,000 fans screamed their approval. “Edinburgh, you’ve made us feel so welcome.”

The atmosphere was nothing short of electric. This far into the tour, most fans were well acquainted with not just the material, but all of Swift’s moves: every wink, every wave, every hair flick. They sang along to the bridge of “Cruel Summer” without missing a beat and roared “f*** the patriarchy” on the 10-minute version of “All Too Well”.

As she clambered down from her to-scale treehouse, Swift congratulated a couple who got engaged during her performance of “Cardigan”.

“I don’t usually get to see those,” she said. “Thank you for getting engaged at my show!”

She kept an eye out for fans who might have become overwhelmed or dehydrated. “I’m just gonna keep doing this until [security] know where I’m looking at,” she said, aiming her guitar to a spot in the crowd during the acoustic segment of her tour.

Moments later, her hand froze during a rendition of “Would’ve, Could’ve, Should’ve”, and Swift quite literally had to “Shake It Off”.

“This is so embarrassing,” she told fans as she appeared to wrestle with cramp. “I must have done this a million times and my hand has never formed a claw before.”

Taylor Swift onstage at Murrayfield Stadium in Edinburgh during the first UK date of her record-breaking Eras Tour

Even before Swift kicked off her Eras tour in Glendale, Arizona, in March last year, the pop star’s mammoth stadium show – spanning her full catalogue and comprising nearly two decades’ worth of hits – had already generated headlines around the world. It even sparked a minor diplomatic row in southeast Asia.

Last month, it was predicted that this UK leg could generate close to a £1bn boost for the economy , as politicians scrambled to confirm their allegiance. London mayor Sadiq Khan declared himself a “proud Swiftie” to The Independent , as he expressed his excitement over welcoming the pop titan to the capital in August.

Swift’s prolificity over the past five years has ensured that she continues to dominate headlines like no other artist. Since the surprise release of twin albums Folklore and Evermore – conceived after she was forced to cancel her Lover tour due to onset of the pandemic – she has barely paused for breath. She triumphed at the 2021 Grammy Awards, making history as the first woman to win Album of the Year three times.

Next, she released two of her album re-recordings , Red and Fearless , with each billed as “Taylor’s Version” as part of her ongoing bid to reclaim the rights to her masters – following a public row with controversial music mogul Scooter Braun. Then came Midnights , the 2022 album produced with frequent collaborator Jack Antonoff, securing yet another history-making achievement – the first artist in history to win four Grammys for Album of the Year.

Cover art for ‘The Tortured Poets Department’

Which brought us to her 11th studio album, The Tortured Poets Department , announced as Swift collected yet another Grammy at the ceremony in Los Angeles, and released on 19 April. Widely believed to be about her brief dalliance with The 1975 frontman Matty Healy, as well as her split from her boyfriend of six years, British actor Joe Alwyn, it polarised critics ( The Independent ’s Helen Brown awarded it five stars) . Yet naysayers didn’t impede Swift’s shattering of myriad chart and streaming records.

“I think it takes a few weeks to grow on you,” fan Isla said, defending the record from negative reviews during the concert. “I actually think it’s one of her best albums.”

After the show, when the final burst of fireworks had drifted into smoke, Swifties lingered in the stadium, flushed, beaming and awestruck, or else made the dash for the first tram outside, shivering in their dresses.

“I grew up listening to her in elementary school, so this is a special moment,” Sarah, 35, said, revealing she’d come from Toronto, Canada. “Her music has been a part of my whole childhood, my youth, and now my adulthood. She means everything to me.”

Swift sings to 73,000 fans in Edinburgh

Sarah also praised the Scottish fans, saying they “liked to party a little harder” than Canadian Swifties. “They’ve got incredible energy, everyone’s just so much fun,” she said.

Joseph, 24, who was dressed in head-to-toe pink sequins, had come from Aberdeen on his own. “I’ve been waiting for years to see her live, and she was even better than I thought she’d be,” he said.

Swift’s music from her Folklore and Evermore eras meant the most to him, he said, as his grandmother died during the pandemic and those songs reminded him of her.

Katrina attended the concert with her 10-year-old daughter, Tamsin, who got to see Swift for the first time. “I really wanted to hear her do ‘Cardigan’ live, because that’s my favourite,” she said. “I think she’s the best singer in the world.”
