By looking close to home, The Maccabees have made their best record yet, and they they’ve got the ‘Marks to Prove It’ in the August 2015 issue of DIY.

Also in the new issue of DIY, Chvrches take us into their studio and give a guide to their second album ‘Every Open Eye’. “We don’t exist in a vacuum anymore,” says Lauren Mayberry, as the band begin to take grip of their huge status.

There’s also HEALTH. Six years after making their last record and with a mammoth job of soundtracking ‘Max Payne’ in-between that, they’re finally ready to bring out ‘Death Magic’, a record that sees them embracing their distorted pop side.

We get the word from Swim Deep about how studio experimentation shaped new album ‘Mothers’, and FIDLAR go by the motto of “If you wanna try it, fucking try it” ahead of their second LP ‘Too’.

All that, plus the fallout from Latitude Festival, chats with Mac DeMarco, Beach House, Daughter, Spector and Ryn Weaver, plus introductions to Oh Wonder, VANT, INHEAVEN and loads more.

DIY’s August 2015 issue is free from record shops, venues and Dr. Martens stores from 7th August onwards. It’ll also be available to read online for free via diymag.com and Apple Newsstand.
