Eight years ago today, All Things Loud was founded in my attic bedroom. In the time since then, we’ve grown out to become one of the Benelux’s leading English-language music websites, always on the pulse of the best new music while providing top quality interviews, reviews and a whole host of other intriguing features.

It’s safe to say that the last two years of our existence have not been easy. We had to shift from predominantly live coverage to special features and in-depth Zoom interviews in the wake of the still-ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, something which has affected our industry on so many different occasions and in so many different ways that it’s hard to keep up. And yet still we’re here: ready for 2022.

2021 saw All Things Loud largely stick to interviews and features, but as the world slowly opened we were able to bring you coverage of the likes of Enter Shikari, Priya Ragu and Don Broco. There were big interviews with Biffy Clyro, POND and Royal Blood, and we also found time to launch our own weekly radio show together with the fantastic people at KINK.

Thanks for sticking around and reading All Things Loud for another year. We’re all excited for what’s to come. Celebrate 2021 with us tonight on KINK Indie for a special New Year’s Eve edition of the All Things Loud show on KINK Indie! The fun starts at 19:00 CET…
