K!1700: The Amity Affliction – A Matter Of Life And Death
This week we’ve got two covers to share for you.
First, headlining the Kerrang! Tour this week marks a celebratory end to The Amity Affliction’s 2017. The past 12 months has brought highs and lows, triumphs and tragedies, but they’re ending it stronger than ever. Kerrang! followed Ahren Stringer and Joel Birch through it all…
Check out the cover:
We’ve also made a special limited edition cover to celebrate the Glassjaw’s comeback. This super-exclusive variant can only be purchased online through our friends at Newsstand. There’s a very limited number of these available and they will not be in shops.
That cover looks like this…
Elsewhere in the issue, PVRIS reflect on a string of triumphant UK shows, which saw them sell out London’s O2 Academy Brixton. Gene Simmons from that tiny little band called KISS takes us inside his whirlwind mind, Zoltan Bathory looks back on a decade of destruction with Five Finger Death Punch, and Chester Bennington’s spirit gets immortalised on Linkin Park’s emotional live album.
Also in the mag, Panic! At The Disco deliver a brand-new live record (even though what we’d really like is the Death Of A Bachelor follow-up…), and Avenged Sevenfold expand last year’s The Stage with mixed results. After that, Enter Shikari annihilate Ally Pally, while Every Time I Die make a racket in Camden, and Royal Blood play not one, not two but three ridiculously huge shows.
The Readers’ Poll is back, too, and we want you to tell us about your 2017. Click here to take part.
Of course, it wouldn’t be Kerrang! without some badass posters. This week we’ve got shots of Jimmy Eat World, Milk Teeth, Slipknot, Avenged Sevenfold, Creeper and AC/DC.
Get your hands on the Amity cover from shops and this link on Wednesday, December 6.
And don’t forget, our limited edition Glassjaw cover is available only from Newsstand on the same date right here.
Plus, Slipknot, Parkway Drive, Enter Shikari, All Time Low, Trivium, Beartooth, Code Orange, In This Moment, Bury Tomorrow and loads more!
“We have made the difficult decision to postpone the remainder of our previously announced spring 2020 performances,” say the band.
