Inside The Birth Of Simple Creatures – Only In The New Issue Of Kerrang!

PLUS! Architects, ONE OK ROCK, Hüsker Dü, Beartooth, Employed To Serve, The Dirty Nil, Mastodon and LOADS more!

When you have the eyes of the rock world on your every move, keeping a secret is nigh-on impossible. Yet the birth of Simple Creatures last week caught everyone by surprise. Well, nearly everyone… In our world exclusive cover feature, Mark Hoppus and Alex Gaskarth reveal all about their new project – and what it means for pop-punk’s biggest bands…

On top of that, we’ve got an exclusive Simple Creatures art print for your walls! 

Elsewhere in the mag this week, ONE OK ROCKs Taka Moriuchi sets his sights on global success, breathing fresh life into the rock scene and standing on the shoulders of the mightiest of metal giants; Caleb Shomo of Beartooth answers a ton of fan questions that we could never get away with asking; and Kerrang! talk punk rock past, present and future with Hüsker Dü legend Bob Mould.

In the reviews section, meanwhile, Dutch metal superstars Within Temptation edge out of the darkness with an emboldened comeback, and Set It Off continue down their poppy path on patchy album four. On the live front, Brit metal heroes Architects round off their massive UK arena tour with a triumphant, game-changing Wembley spectacular, while Cancer Bats unleash hell in Aldershot, and Bright alt.metal alchemists Black Peaks get experimental in Reading.

Plus, to celebrate Architects’ conquering of Wembley, we’ve got a Holy Hell poster special! 

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, January 30 from all good newsagents.
