K!1748 – Green Day: Their Complete History… Every Album Revisited!
Scrappy punk bands aren’t supposed to become rock’s biggest icons. But that’s precisely what happened to Green Day. Twice. The East Bay trio’s story has been one of such drama it’s scarcely believable – taking in superstardom, rehab, rejection from the punk community, rock operas and a legacy beyond measure. Here, in all its grit and glory, is Billie Joe Armstrong, Mike Dirnt and Tré Cool’s most unique of tales, album by album…
Plus, in honour of our ginormous Green Day celebration, we present you with an amazing gig poster by brilliant U.S. artist Coop. See more of his work – including ace stuff for Foo Fighters, Soundgarden and Rocket From The Crypt – at Theartofcoop.bigcartel.com.
Elsewhere in the mag, FEVER 333 give us the skinny on their debut album album and losing the ‘THE’, Skunk Anansie legend Skin opens up on life, mental health and fighting racists, Touché Amoré’s Jeremy Bolm walks us through the songs that shaped his life, Rou Reynolds of Enter Shikari explains the importance of not just touring in major cities, and Josh Franceschi looks ahead to You Me At Six’s forthcoming throwback run celebrating 10 years of Take Off Your Colours.
Over in the reviews section, a (mostly) reunited Smashing Pumpkins strike back with their short but sweet 10th LP, and Chris Cornell gets remembered with a friend-curated collection. On the live front, London waves a rowdy, bloody goodbye to the Kings Of Trash, Slayer; The Prodigy raise the tempo in Glasgow; and Idles give Brexit Britain a much-needed hug (definitely not quite as warm and friendly as it sounds).
Oh yeah, and there’s an incredible twenty one pilots Bandito tour poster pull-out book from the one and only Brad Heaton, featuring 11 brand-new shots of Tyler Joseph and Josh Dun doing what they do best.
All this and more is available in the new issue of Kerrang! – which you can get anywhere in the world when you order online through Newsstand. But for UK residents, it hits the shops on Wednesday, November 14 from all good newsagents.
Watch twenty one pilots create their wonderfully colourful new video for Shy Away.
