K!1720: Turnstile Rewrite The Rulebook
Music is changing. Traditional genre boundaries of sound and scene are wilting in the new dawn, where diversity, inclusivity and authenticity are taking precedence over the posturing snobbery of the past. And Baltimore hardcore experimentalists Turnstile are leading the charge, one stage-dive at a time…
This week’s exclusive print comes in the form of a piece of art produced by Palaye Royale’s Emerson Barrett – which is bloody decent of him, isn’t it?
Speaking of which, who exactly are Palaye Royale? The trio of brothers with fancy clothes and even fancier names seem to inspire love and hate in equal measure. The question is: where do you stand? Kerrang! find out more…
Elsewhere in the issue, the one and only Randy Blythe talks Lamb Of God, Burn The Priest, punk rock, running for president and more, while we say a hearty “goodbye” to metal’s masters, Slayer. On top of that, While She Sleeps unveil a whole host of cool shit, Fall Out Boy’s Pete Wentz discusses his feelings on anniversary tours, PVRIS’ Lynn Gunn tells us about the songs that make her want to sleep, cry and, er, eat rice pilaf, and we hit the road with Rolo Tomassi.
In the reviews section, Parkway Drive convert grief into art on their exceptionally moving sixth album, and Skindred pull a few punches on their seventh. On the live front, Converge annihilate Camden with a whole spectrum of heaviness, Trivium smash the UK with the assistance of metal’s new class, and Of Mice & Men stand defiant on their first Austin Carlile-less UK tour.
The new issue of Kerrang! is available anywhere in the world when you order online through Newsstand. But for UK residents, it hits the shops on Wednesday, May 2 from all good newsagents.
