CHECK OUT DJ YODA’S NEW RELENTLESS TRACK

So the Internet has finally ingested its own innards – DJ Yoda asked Relentless Energy fans to send in Vines of them doing pretty much anything (they didn’t use the one of us on the toilet for some reason), and him being the musical genius that he is, he made a song out of them.

It was premiered live last weekend at The Relentless House Party in Brighton, check out the gallery below INNIT. Visit www.relentlessenergy.com for more.

BAND VS FOOD: BLITZ KIDS

Do you know what we love? Making bands eat inhuman amounts of food then laughing at them. We’ve been doing it for around a year and we ain’t stopping yet! For this edition we took Joe and Jono from Blitz Kids to Meat Mission for the Triple Chilli Challenge. If you want to see two grown men swearing, wincing, sweating and nearly being sick a lot – then press play motherfucker!

Pre-order Blitz Kids’ debut album The Good Youth HERE.

SUICIDE SILENCE ARE RELEASING THE MITCH LUCKER MEMORIAL SHOW ON CD AND DVD

Last year the metal community lost one of its brightest lights in Mitch Lucker. Suicide Silence were at the top of their game and Mitch’s vocals were the driving force behind the deathcore mob. Following his death, Suicide Silence held a memorial show in California featuring a load of vocalists including Danny Worsnop, Austin Carlisle and Randy Blythe.

We interviewed the band for FRONT 189 (which you can buy HERE/download HERE) and talk about carrying on after Mitch and the band’s legacy.

KICK-ASS 2 COMIC CANV-ASS

At the weekend, to celebrate Kick-Ass 2 coming out on DVD and Blu-Ray and download and all that shit, Universal created a big-ass version of writer Mark Millar’s favourite scene from the comic with the help of street artists and people that just fancied having a go. The talented and merely-enthusiastic alike tried their hands at recreating John Romita Jr’s awesome art on a rooftop in East London under the tutelage of Jim Vision from End Of The Line and our buddy Rufus Dayglo.

Our personal favourite panel from any volume of Kick-Ass is probably always going to be the “Okay you cunts, let’s see what you can do” one, because we’re childish and like swearing a lot and really fucking didn’t see it coming when we read that issue, but this still looked awesome. There’s a shit-ton of pics after the jump. Too many, some could argue…

WHAT I WANT FOR CHRISTMAS: MIKEY CHAPMAN FROM MALLORY KNOX

XmasMikey

Holy fucking shit Christmas is a week tomorrow and we still haven’t bought a fucking thing – but that’s only because no-one told us what they actually want. Not like Mikey from Mallory Knox here, we know exactly what he wants from Sandy Claws this year. Are we getting it for him though? Are we footballs. But that doesn’t stop us wishing for the exact same thing. Good call, Mikey.

“I want an Xbox One, man. I don’t really want anything for Christmas, I usually say something cheesy like world peace but I straight up want an Xbox One but apparently you can’t get them ‘til January cos they’re sold out but I’m determined to find a hook-up. I’m all about Xbox over PS4 man, I love Halo. I can’t bear the thought of paying hundreds of pounds and not being able to play Halo.”

Find out what loads of other people more famous than us want for Christmas HERE.

THE CHILD OF LOV – R.I.P

COL - RIP - 01

Sadly, Martijn Teerlinck aka Cole Williams aka The Child Of Lov passed away last week aged just 26. A few months ago we travelled to Amsterdam to spend some time with him for a shoot in issue 185.

We walked the Dutch streets with him for a whole day going to famous locations in the city and shooting where we weren’t allowed. Cole was never less than hospitable and was down with anything we wanted to do for the shoot. His knowledge of the city and of music and basically everything we spoke about was incredible. Somehow we even ended up drinking champagne and eating oysters with him before a hazy night out in the city.

His self-titled debut album that came out this week was one of the best of 2013 and spanned so many genres it was crazy. If you’ve not heard it, go listen right away.

Here are more photos from the day we spent with him, as there were too many good ones to fit in the magazine.

R.I.P Martijn.
