Grab a pen and paper, a spray can and a wall or just a tattoo machine and your forehead, because right now you need to make a note of the fact that today, the day that FRONT issue 166 landed, is the day your life changed for the better. We’re back with a double team on the cover to set your world on fire, and so many incredibly huge names inside that there’s not enough space on the internet to tell you about it. Honest, we called the internet and it was all, “Seriously, calm the fuck down, you legends, you”. Fuck the internet, though, cos here’s a load of stuff that’s coming your way this month:
HANNAH AND LUCY TEAM UP TO TAKE OVER THE UNIVERSE
It’s no coincidence that the day we let Hannah and Lucy V loose on the world, the sun decides to come the fuck out and make us all toasty. The twosome have powers beyond those that make your eyes melt with excitement, y’see. They’re such a formidable and sexy force that they can control the weather, the tides, and even your pulse. Feel that, it’s going faster than a squirrel on a firework, isn’t it? Science, right there.
MARK HOPPUS ON FOREVER FINDING FARTS FUNNY
It’s a very good time to live in the UK. It’s the home of this fine magazine, but now also of pop-punk hero Mark Hoppus, too. We caught up with the Blink-182 bass man to talk swearing, farts, lesbian-themed porno, living in London, turning 40, and ruining gin. Obviously.
GET ACQUAINTED WITH REBECCA BONE
She likes the stuff we like, she’s mates with our mates and she can hold together a blog that we’d happily spend hundreds of years trawling through. She’s Rebecca Bone, and she’s cooler than everyone ever. Meet her inside our new issue, you lucky bastards.
48 NAIL-BITING HOURS ON THE ROAD WITH LOWER THAN ATLANTIS
This year’s going to be a bit fuggin’ massive for the Lower Than Atlantis gents, what with just signing a very big-boy contract with Island Records, loads of radio time under their belts, and a much-anticipated album dropping later this year. We stalked the Hertfordshire foursome on their recent sold-out UK tour and report back on all the busted voices, broken toilets and bloody vomit that went down. Also, check back later for our video from the two days on tour, too.
BECOME A MOTORBIKE AND OTHER FREAKY HIGHS FROM AROUND THE WORLD
People turning into motorbikes? Users becoming lizards? Sniffing poo? FRONT chows down on the freaky, ugly and batshit-crazy new street drugs from all over the globe that make smack, gak and crack look like a sip of sherry, and let you in on their bonkers side effects so you never ever have to.
Got your head around that? Hell, there’s more. We’ve got tips on how to become as big as Slayer, an A-List Playlist with Anti-Flag, skating, beards and hobos with Chris Haslam, tripping out with While She Sleeps, a look inside the madcap home of Say Anything‘s Max Bemis, t-shirt wearing with Don Broco, tattooed chins with DevilDriver, setting fire to stuff with Tonight Alive, the very lovely electro beauty Lights, how to lift really big things with a wolf, big-balled snowmen and about a gazillion kilos of other stuff that needs to be in your life today.
Why not beat the crowds of frenzied people out on the street and grab an issue from our online shop HERE or find all our digital versions HERE, too? Dead easy, like. Thanks for listening, and stay rad. x
