What can you say about blink-182 that hasn’t already been said a million times before? Legendary doesn’t even come close to describing a band who have been a staple of the scene longer than many of you reading this have been alive, and yet still they’ve never lost their spark. Even with a reshuffled line-up, there’s still magic running through their veins, so we’re obviously cock-and-indeed-ahoop to welcome them to the cover of Upset for the first time this month. That’s two in a year, Mr Hoppus. You should probably take your own drawer for when you stay over.
They’re not the only long term faves rolling up this month, though. There’s finally a debut album from The Faim, The Menzingers are back in predictably fine form, and Of Mice & Men have a fearsomely good record to tell us all about.
Add to that the magnificent Chastity Belt, Press Club, Counterfeit, Proper and all the fun of Reading 2019, and we’re in for a big one.
The October issue of Upset ships this week. You can order a copy right now, above, or subscribe here. You can also pick it up from our network of stockists in record shops, retail outlets and venues around the UK.
