You think you know who Black Veil Brides are? Think again: in our in-depth cover feature we wipe away the make-up and ask if Andy Biersack and his band of outcasts really will manage to paint the world black.
PLUS – FREE 100% Volume CD, six brilliant posters and a free Spycatcher EP.
Also this month – we go access all areas with My Passion on their craziest tour ever, celebrate rock’s hardest-worker Frank Turner, delve deep into the mind of Dallas Green (City And Colour), take a peek inside You Me At Six’s Hollywood studio, find out why Enter Shikari’s souls have been rotting away, check up on La Dispute’s progress with their new album, spend some quality time with Gus from Young Guns… in a library and fall in love all over again with Manchester Orchestra.
We also talk to rising stars VersaEmerge about how losing a member won’t hold them back, our Agony Uncle Sean Smith from The Blackout solves more of your weird and warped problems and look at the impact of Slam Dunk headliners Less Than Jake’s classic ‘Hello Rockview’. And for everyone who wants to put the ‘mental’ in ‘instrumental’, we’ve got a special four-page close-up on Explosions In The Sky, Brontide, And So I Watch You From Afar, This Will Destroy You and Maybeshewill.
There’s a stack of awesome new bands this month, including Spycatcher, Blitz Kids, Foxfires, Heart In Hand, Shapes, Three Trapped Tigers and more. And we review and rate new albums from Fucked Up, All time Low, Black Veil Brides and Death Cab For Cutie among others, and give our verdict on shows from the likes of Bring Me The Horizon, Beecher and Panic! At The Disco as well as Hit The Deck.
