Ahoy there! Welcome to Zombies Wear Band Shirts, I'm Ali! I'm 20 and I study History in the south of England. I've been blogging for almost a year over at Zombies Wear Eyeliner, where I've talked about makeup, music and pretty much everything that interests me. After the initial buzz of beauty blogging, I realised writing about music flows so much easier and more naturally to me than discussing an eyeliner. And that's where Zombies Wear Band Shirts was born, although I owe a huge debt to my friend Sophie for the amazing blog title!
Music has always been a massively important part of my life, and so much of my life is determined by the music I'm listening to at the time. But I'm not a musician, I can't read sheet music, I don't play an instrument and I don't know the difference between a bridge and a hook. But I'll tell you what I do know - how to voice my opinions on something. Whether it's an informed opinion or not, I can tell you what I think of a long-awaited album, what I think of a band that's just broken up, what I think of an up-and-coming band that deserve more recognition.
What can you expect from Zombies Wear Band Shirts?
Well what do you expect from a music blog? Track and album reviews, gig reviews, introductions to new bands... you name it, you'll probably find it here.
My music tastes aren't particularly limited. It's way too clichéd for me to say 'I love any type of music', but I'm willing to give anything a try and be as objective as I possibly can about it. Of course, I have my areas of expertise, mainly glam rock and pop punk. I grew up with Queen, KISS, Ozzy Osbourne and Alice Cooper, despite being born in the 90s, I'm a 70s girl at heart. My teenage years were spent with My Chemical Romance, The Used and Fall Out Boy on constant loop, and those were quite possibly the best years of my life.
I set myself a challenge throughout 2013 to review an album or two of the bands featured each month on the Metal Hammer 2013 calendar, so at the end of each month you'll be able to read my thoughts on Miss May I, Five Finger Death Punch, Slayer and many more.
So that's it! I hope you enjoy everything in store on Zombies Wear Band Shirts, I'd love to know what you'd like to see here, so feel free to leave a comment down below!
