It's often said that nice guys finish last, but as Pierce The Veil are here to prove, there are still some fully capable of bucking the trend. In this month's cover feature, we join them on tour in America to find out more about their rise to the top.
We've also got interviews with Hatebreed, Arcane Roots, Escape The Fate, Frank Turner, While She Sleeps, Bring Me The Horizon and Sleeping With Sirens. Asking Alexandria give us details of their highly anticipated third album, Bury Tomorrow take on a bunch of their fans, we venture into the studio with August Burns Red, the hottest bands are tracked down in our Exposure section, plus we induct HIM's 'Love Metal' into our Hall of Fame.
We give you our verdict on the newest albums by Fall Out Boy, 30 Seconds To Mars and The Dillinger Escape Plan, we go Access All Areas with A Day To Remember as they get right back at it live in New York, plus we rate Biffy Clyro, The Jagermeister Music Tour, The Smoking Hearts, Swans and Broadway Calls live.
