If zombies and vampires are a bit too tame for your liking then we have a feeling that our exclusive news this week is going to send shivers down your spine.
bloody cuts for beccy

Bloody Cuts is an anthology of short Horror films presented online as a free web series for the love and passion of UK horror filmmaking.” — Ben Franklin & Anthony Melton

Going by the gruesome name of Bloody Cuts, the British film company have been drenching the internet with their blood thirsty, gory and downright frightful short films since 2011 and recently, we got to meet the brains behind the business. Inspired by Bloody Cuts anthology of thirteen 3 – 10 minute horror films, we are dreadfully excited to announce the launch of a new and exclusive range of merchandise.

Cited as one of the most intense horror film companies around, it is only to be expected that they embraced triskaidekaphobia with their thirteen-piece anthology. So if you are a fan of the frightful and a follower of fear, feast your eyes on these chilling designs from Bloody Cuts.

Sleeping With Sirens Tour

Back in May we opened our doors to you lovely lot and gave you the chance to go and see Sleeping With Sirens at one of their gigs for their 2013 UK tour. The entries came flooding in and we were pretty impressed with the quality of your arty skills!

Some of the winners were kind enough to send us in their pictures and videos from the gigs so we thought it only polite to put them into a blog for you all to admire. With plenty of pictures of Kellin and his daughter Copeland as special guest and loads more up close and personal pics of the SWS boys, this gallery of goodness is sure to keep you amused. Click on the pictures below to enlarge the thumbnails.

Grindstore Band Chart

As another Friday is upon us, we thought we would give you a little something have a look at over the weekend while you’re picking out your new tees for Download, so we would like to give you a peek at our new chart!

As you may or may not have seen, our very talented technical team have been making some changes to the Grindstore website over the past few months and things are looking good! One of our biggest new additions is the Grindstore Band Chart which features the top 50 selling bands and how they compared to their previous position. So make sure you are always ahead of the game and grab yourself some hot fashion with a little help from the band chart. As it stands today, the top 10 is looking a little something like this:
