In the latest issue of Rock Sound we get inside international pop-rock phenomenon 5 Seconds Of Summer and separate the hype from the bullshit. And yep, you’re seeing straight – Ashton, Luke, Michael and Calum each have their own individual cover!
Elsewhere in the magazine, we’ve speak exclusively with No Devotion about what the future holds, Gerard Way finally talks about his forthcoming solo album, while Black Veil Brides’ Andy Biersack waxes lyrical about BVB #4.
We go Access All Areas at the year’s Download Festival, and Blessthefall’s Beau Bokan tells us why Lights isn’t the only love of his life (the other one’s Ghostbusters!) Lower Than Atlantis face a grilling from five of their most dedicated fans, and Rise Against get personal over their new album ‘The Black Market’.
We say hello again to Four Year Strong, and find out exactly what just happened over the last two years, and why they’re now in a better position than ever.
Elsewhere, we rate the new albums from Twin Atlantic, Charlie Simpson and Real Friends, plus we report back from the tour of the century, as Paramore and Fall Out Boy’s #MONUMENTOUR hits the road Stateside.
Looking for new bands? Our Exposure section is bursting this month, as we give a hearty introduction to Wovenwar, Coldrain and Driver Friendly, while Dan Campbell lets us inside the head of Aaron West And The Roaring Twenties.
Want posters? We got posters! This month is stuff full of stunning profiles of Bring Me The Horizon’s Oli Sykes, All Time Low’s Alex Gaskarth, Sleeping With Sirens’ Kellin Quinn, Asking Alexandria’s Danny Worsnop, Issues’ Tyler Carter and Bury Tomorrow’s Dani Winter-Bates.
As always, our 100% Volume covermount CD is stuff full of new tunes from the likes of Four Year Strong, Every Time I Die, Basement, Wovenwar, United Nations and more than we can fit in here.
