Out now! The September issue of DIY - featuring Metronomy, Bombay Bicycle Club & Girl Band - is out now!

It also features Mystery Jets, LIFE, Pixies, Brittany Howard and your ultimate guide to the 2019 Hyundai Mercury Prize.

Happy Friday, dear readers! Our new issue, as fronted by Metronomy, is out now!

Six albums in and the band are still blossoming. Ahead of the release of ‘Metronomy Forever’, we meet mastermind Joe Mount for our September Issue to find out how the genre-spanning group have maintained their place as one of Britain’s most beloved bands for over a decade.

Elsewhere in the mag, we give you the ultimate run-down of this year’s 2019 Hyundai Mercury Prize featuring all of the shortlisted artists: Anna Calvi, black midi, Cate Le Bon, Dave, Foals, Fontaines DC, IDLES, Little Simz, NAO, Seed Ensemble, slowthai and The 1975.

We also talk to Bombay Bicycle Club to find out what they’ve been up to and what they’re planning next, meet Girl Band ahead of the release of their sophomore album ‘The Talkies’ and have a catch-up with the UK’s most exciting band Squid. We also talk Mystery Jets’ brilliant new record, before discovering what went into the making of Brittany Howard’s debut ‘Jaime’.

And that’s all before introducing you to newbies including FEET, Arlo Parks and Omar Apollo, and (not-so-newbies) Pixies tell us about their forthcoming record ‘Beneath The Eyrie’, alongside a preview of this month’s Reeperbahn Festival and an inside look into Foals’ ‘Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost: Part 2’.

Phew! There’s obviously loads more, so grab your copy from the nearest stockist on Friday or order one straight to your door right here, right now.
