Elsewhere in this week’s issue, SWMRS take us inside the greatest album they’ve ever written – their upcoming second record, Berkeley’s On Fire – while Bury Tomorrow’s Dani Winter-Bates unveil the songs (and fake tattoos) that shaped his life. On top of that, as well as K!‘s rundown of all the best music of the year, we ask 20 rockstars – from Mike Shinoda to Tyler Joseph – for their picks of 2018.

Over in the reviews section, Bring Me The Horizon feel the love at their massive Yorkshire return, A Perfect Circle sign off their latest chapter in fine – if underappreciated – style, and the punk-tastic Fireball Fuelling The Fire Tour brings a riotous party to London.
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 12 from all good newsagents.
