Where is there left for Paramore to go? In our 10-page special we reveal the band's future and ask Hayley how she's coped with her hardest year yet. "My life is becoming a cartoon of itself," she explains. Plus there’s free Paramore stickers and posters too. There are also two giant posters featuring All Time Low and Four Year Strong bundled with the issue.
We've also got an epic Reading and Leeds preview, with an interview with Weezer's Rivers Cuomo to celebrate ‘The Blue Album’ being inducted into our hall of fame, Lostprophets' Ian Watkins shows off his artistic side and You Me At Six, Kids In Glass Houses, Billy Talent, Biffy Clyro, Cancer Bats, Frank Turner and more giving us their Festival Commandments.

Corey Taylor opens up about what Stone Sour means to him and those inimitable Murderdolls are up to their old tricks... in a new way.
