It’s no secret that SWMRS are one of Upset’s very favourite bands. Their last album, the fizzbanging ‘Drive North’, was the soundtrack to some of our early issues.
They’re a band with everything. Not just the exciting, immediate songs, but also The Right Sort Of Attitude too. Pushing to make the scene around them a better place, their first Upset cover has been a long time coming, but as they hit the UK's live venues for a headline tour, we’re stoked it’s finally arrived.
Elsewhere this month we’ve got two legit legends in the form of blink-182’s Mark Hoppus and All Time Low’s Alex Gaskarth, who’ve joined forces to form Simple Creatures. If you’re after something from the very top drawer, the new albums from La Dispute and American Football will see you right - you'll find both interviewed this month - while Grandson definitely brings the excitement.
In fact, we've got interviews coming out of our staple holes. There's the certified awesome Ex Hex, mighty The Maine and magnificent Martha. Crows tell us all about their incendiary debut record, As It Is take us through their tour essentials and we introduce Badflower in About To Break.
There's also a new EP run through from The Xcerts, a quick chat with Jaws and Lights' really very good Teenage Kicks.. Plus, y'know, 'more'.
