Good day, fine readers. How the fuck are you doing? Eighty hundred times better for casting your eyes over the latest, greatest issue of FRONT, aren’t you? Glad to hear it, because this month we’ve gone all out to produce something so amazing, so incredible and earth-shatteringly good that we may have bust a nut or three along the way. But that’s all good – we’ve still got a couple left. Here’s what you lucky legends have got in store this time around:
GET HIGH ON LIFE WITH MEL AND KESHIA
It’s been a while since we last saw the heart-stoppingly pretty face of Mel Clarke on the cover. Hell, it’s been far too long. But we’re telling you now, it’s been well worth the wait. She’s back, this time partnering up with your new favourite girl Keshia in a retro skate-inspired shoot so brilliant you’ll need to explain to your optician why your eyes have melted out of your head, and he’ll be all “FRONT is bad for your health,” and you’ll be all “Don’t tell me what to do” and then your mates will think you’re a badass and you’ll be a hero forever. Or something like that. We digress: this shoot will change your life for the better, melty eyes or not. Honest.
THE 13 RADDEST SKATE TEAMS EVER
If that wasn’t enough skate action for you, then feast your facial features on this. We’ve compiled a fuckin’ sick list of the raddest, baddest and down right ridiculously cool skate teams that ever shredded the universe. Wanna know which team you’re most likely to find behind bars? It’s in there. Wanna know which team’ll wreck the crap out of your next house party? It’s in there. Wanna know which team sells ritual fighting knives alongside their t-shirts and decks? It’s in there with a shit-ton more awesomeness that you need to learn right now. It’s a right banger.
A QUICK CHAT WITH THE GOD OF FUCK
Yup, we spoke to Marilyn Manson. Holy shit, he’s the coolest motherfucker ever. He tells us all about shitting in litterboxes, pulling guns on pranksters, bumping into he ex-wife Dita, what happens when he smashes back the absinthe and about ninety other anecdotes so brilliant that if we wrote them all down, the internet would explode. Seriously, we’d be fined like eighty quid or something.
A WORLD FIRST: MAIN FASHION WITH KREAYSHAWN
We’ve done something real special and broken new ground this month by inviting the super lovely and proper cool Kreayshawn, the first lady of Tumblr, the Duchess of Twitter and the killer queen of hip hop to come sport some the coolest garms around for our first ever solo female fashion shoot. Have a sneaky peek at the shoot below then go buy this skill little piece of FRONT history, take it to the Antiques Roadshow in 2062, get loads of money for it and be famous. Yup, you’re absolutely welcome.
EAT YOUR WAY AROUND AMERICA WITH YOU ME AT SIX
Fresh from blasting the Warped Tour wide open, You Me At Six have given us an access all areas, never before seen mega exclusive look at what went down behind the scenes. It looks like they had the best time ever, the lucky bastards.
