Far - At Night We Live

A dark delight...

A few years ago we thought pigs would have more chance of flying than influential post- hardcore legends Far ever re-uniting, let alone releasing a brand new album. For once we’re happy to have been proved wrong. Right from the brooding, crunching chords of opener ‘Deafening’, from the off, ‘At Night We Live’, their first studio effort in 12 years, is a dark delight. ‘When I Could See’ is textbook Far: anthemic and driving yet with delicate semi acoustics and Jonah Matranga’s vocal sensibilities, while ‘Dear Enemy’ is a gnarly sonic jab in the ribs with prodding, hooky and discordant guitars. An outstanding return.

All Time Low Return To The Cover Of Rock Sound!

In RS199, we step behind the scenes of one of the world’s hottest bands – All Time Low – as they teeter on the edge of superstardom. Elsewhere, Danny Worsnop talks We Are Harlot, Asking Alexandria and more, we hear about the songs that inspired Frank Iero and My Chemical Romance, and we dip behind the scenes on Architects’ biggest ever tour.

PLUS: There are eight FREE ALL TIME LOW POSTERS. FREE, we say.
