SWMRS: Rock’s Next Generation Take Charge – Only In The New Issue Of Kerrang!
Turn on the news, and you’d be forgiven for thinking that we’re all going to hell in a handbasket. But not everyone has given up hope. With the world around them afflame, SWMRS are out to douse the inferno and inspire young people with a message of positivity again…
