K!1689: Enter Shikari – The Soundtrack To The End Of The World
Welcome to the new issue of Kerrang!. This week we’ve put one of Britain’s most consistently brilliant bands on the cover, Enter Shikari.
As the world around us goes to shit, you’d think this would give the St Albans foursome the ammo they needed for their fifth studio effort, The Spark. But in creating their boldest – and most beautifully intimate – album to date, frontman Rou Reynolds first had to win his own very personal war…
Just look at that cover. Pretty stunning, isn’t it?
Elsewhere in the issue, we catch up with LA punks The Bronx as they reveal the trials and tribulations that shaped their excellent new album, V, while New Found Glory get all nostalgic on us with a look back on their 20 years of pop-punk brilliance. We also review A Day To Remember live in Indianapolis, and the new Sleeping With Sirens, Frank Iero And The Patience, Satyricon and Arcane Roots records get the K‑rating treatment.
Oh, and if you’re bored of your patterned wallpaper, we’ve got some pretty cool posters for you! Stick new snaps of Don Broco, Trent Reznor, Neck Deep, Marilyn Manson, Deaf Havana, Milk Teeth and Employed To Serve on your walls…
The new issue hits shops and the newsstand on Wednesday, September 20.
Emo Nite Vegas Vacation is happening this October – and it features performances by the likes of Avril Lavigne, Travis Barker, Sleeping With Sirens and more.
Biffy Clyro’s new single A Hunger In Your Haunt is described by Simon Neil as “an expression of pure frustration” and “a self-motivating mantra”.
