As well as running this here website day in, day out, we also make a magazine every month. Here's a look at just a little bit of what goes into each issue. And remember, if you subscribe now, you'll get five issues for £5 plus a FREE copy of Four Year Strong's 'Go Down In History' EP.
1. Freebies. Lots of freebies. This month: FREE STICKERS!
Everyone loves free shit, right? In recent months, we've given away sticker sheets, HUGE posters and every month you get a free covermount CD stuffed with the hottest new tracks. This month, we've got a stickersheet featuring Black Veil Brides, Sleeping With Sirens, Of Mice & Men, Falling In Reverse, Bring Me The Horizon, Motionless In White, While She Sleeps and more stuffed with the mag, so if your textbook / laptop / face needs a fresh look, we can help you out.
2. We get your favourite rock stars to give you some worthwhile life advice.
Our Life Lessons feature has seen some of the biggest names in rock sharing some their words of wisdom in recent months, and this month is no different. Machine Head man Robb Flynn offers tips on living without regrets, taking risks (while staying safe) and remembering your roots, and you know what? He makes a lot of good points.
3. We put you in a room with your favourite bands and let YOU ask the questions.
Our In The Firing Line feature puts five fans in the room with their favourite bands each month, and let's them do the talking. In the current issue, it's Five Finger Death Punch's turn, and shit gets weird.
4. We cover more new music than anyone else, every single month.
We tell you this every month because it's the truth. In the latest issue, we take a closer look at Bournemouth pop-punks ROAM, Rise Records post-hardcore types Defeat The Low, Bristol two-piece Caves, Glasweigan alt-rockers Bear Arms and just so many more great new bands. For a glance at what else is inside our Exposure section this month, have a read of our 10 New Bands You Need In Your Life Right Now feature.
5. There's so much more than just what's on the cover. Don't believe us? Check this out.
This month, we've got metal juggernauts Slipknot on the cover. But it's not all about Slipknot. If they're not your bag, in the same mag we've got features on Metro Station, The Ghost Inside, Ghost Town, Machine Head's Robb Flynn, State Champs' Derek Discanio, Against Me! and The Xcerts, and we cover hundreds of other bands across our reviews and Exposure sections. Basically, we're not just a pretty (or scary) face.
6. Posters! A whole load of posters for your walls!
Every month in the magazine, we stuff the middle pages full of the hottest posters that your walls are crying out for. This month, we're shining a light on the class of 2014: the bands who have laid the foundations this year to take over in the coming 12 months. So if you want some sweet pictures of PVRIS, Beartooth, As It Is, Real Friends, Slaves (US), Set It Off, Twenty One Pilots and Echosmith on your walls, you know what to do. (Bonus: check out a full gallery of this month's posters in this gallery).
