K!1711: Smashing Pumpkins – Life. Death. Rebirth. Their Full Story
This week’s issue is celebrating a very important rock reunion. Emerging at the height of the ’90s alt.rock boom, Smashing Pumpkins carved a unique niche and left a legendary legacy in their wake. To celebrate the reformation of (most of) their classic line-up, we chart the rise, fall and rise again of one of rock’s most important pioneers…
After that, All Time Low prepare to revisit their past with a So Wrong, It’s Right celebratory arena tour; Billy Gould gives us the inside story of Faith No More; Black Foxxes head to their second home, Iceland, for a revealing new interview; and Code Orange’s Jami Morgan gushes about his favourite music. Elsewhere, Foo Fighters storm the BRIT Awards, and (rightfully) take home a well-deserved gong, while across the pond Neck Deep check in on their huge overseas tour.
Also, Frank Carter lays waste to a poor Aussie venue, Brian Fallon brings the feel-good vibes to Kingston, and The Xcerts bare their souls in Sheffield. All before Awsten Knight gets ready to wear some massive sweaters on Waterparks’ UK tour, and Rolo Tomassi return with a new record (which is pretty decent, by the way)…
Posters this week consist of Avenged Sevenfold through the years, because we’re good like that.
Remember, you can order the new issue anywhere in world online through Newsstand. Otherwise, you can get it in the shops on Wednesday, February 28.
All Time Low, The Story So Far and more will be touring the U.S. next year on the Sad Summer Fest bill.
Twenty years later, Killswitch Engage’s first LP remains one of metalcore’s shining examples of ambitious arrangements, encouraging lyricism, and unfaltering determination
