The Skinny: One of the UK’s premiere metal exports, Asking Alexandria, released their brand new album The Black on March 25, 2016 via Sumerian Records to rave reviews. Touring in support of their new music, the group hit Toronto on March 5th as part of the “British Invasion Tour” and floored all concert-goers. Just ahead of the pandemonium, we played a fun game of METAL or NOT? with Denis Stoff (vocals) and James Cassells (drums) who shared some completely comical stories involving shitting in mosh pits, bed wetting and more.


Born in 2003, V13 was a socio-political website that, in 2005, morphed into PureGrainAudio and spent 15 years developing into one of Canada's (and the world’s) leading music sites. On the eve of the site’s 15th anniversary, a full re-launch and rebrand takes us back to our roots and opens the door to a full suite of Music, Film, TV, and Cultural content.
