K!1733: Rise Against – Apathy Is Dangerous. Rage Is A Great Thing…”

PLUS! Alkaline Trio, You Me At Six, BABYMETAL, The Gaslight Anthem, Alice In Chains, Nightwish, Sum 41 and LOADS more…

For the best part of two decades, Rise Against have taken up the frontline fight for a better world. But as 2018 continues to spin ever further out of control by the day, Tim McIlrath knows that any revolution requires more than just a fire inside. The real battle starts here and now…

Elsewhere in the mag this week, Alkaline Trios Matt Skiba and Dan Andriano take K! inside their surprise new album, Is This Thing Cursed?, while Panic! At The Disco mainman Brendon Urie explains why freedom and excitement are key in making great music. On top of that, You Me At Six bring us onto the set of their new video, Bonnie Fraser of Stand Atlantic strolls down musical memory lane, and we go in (too deep) with pop-punk survivor Deryck Whibley of Sum 41.

Over in the reviews section, James Veck-Gilodi ditches the heaviness and embraces his poppier side on Deaf Havanas emotionally honest fifth album, while Trophy Eyes set their sights on big dreams on their ambitious third record. Live, New Jersey’s finest punk poets The Gaslight Anthem reunite to mark a decade of The 59 Sound; Alice In Chains rock a Roman amphitheatre in Israel; and post-hardcore vets Hopesfall make their long-awaited return for a Kerrang!-hosted show.

And, finally, we’ve got a BABYMETAL poster special, too! Don’t say we don’t treat you guys well…

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, August 1 from all good newsagents.
