K!1751 – Slipknot: “You Have No Idea What’s Coming Next…”
Slipknot are back. We’ve already had the first taste of the follow-up to .5: The Chapter in the form of All Out Life, but 2019 will deliver far beyond our wildest dreams, as the leader of Iowa’s finest, Shawn ‘Clown’ Crahan, reveals…
On top of that, we couldn’t bring the ’Knot back to the cover of Kerrang! without also marking the occasion with another exclusive art print – you can thank us later once it’s up on your wall.
Elsewhere in the mag, Bring Me The Horizon unveil their massive plans for next year – and it involves something they’ve never done before – while twenty one pilots’ Tyler Joseph and Josh Dun talk us through the music that shaped their lives (spoiler: includes everything from Death Cab For Cutie to, um, Donkey Kong). On top of that, The Struts frontman Luke Spiller talks sweaty palms and ripped trousers, Dallas Green (aka City And Colour) reflects on continuing to discover himself, moving away from Trump, and keeping on keeping on, and beguiling dark singer-songwriter Emma Ruth Rundle faces up to her past.
Over in the reviews section, AFI hint at future directions with mixed results on their new five-track EP, while Kerrang! writer Ian Winwood delves into the era that changed punk forever with his wonderful new book, Smash!. On the live front, nostalgia rules as You Me At Six celebrate 10 years of Take Off Your Colours, As It Is welcome Manchester to the era of The Great Depression, and Nothing But Thieves host a sold-out spectacular.
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, December 5 from all good newsagents.
