Featuring Alt-J, Paramore, DFA 1979 and Royal Blood.
Successfully bedded into a bean bag? Finished licking that crisp packet? Good - now listen carefully. Alt-J are September’s DIY coverstars, and they’ve been given tins of paint, some triangles and anything else they can get their free hands on.
This month’s cover feature brings together Big Topics like Gary Barlow and the Illuminati, all while whittling down to the all important subject: The madness behind Alt-J’s second album, ‘This Is All Yours’.
Elsewhere in the new DIY, you’ll find features on the long-awaited, triumphant return of DFA 1979. They’re battling it out with another thrashing duo, Royal Blood. Also inside: Perfume Genius finds his inner scream with new album ‘Too Bright’, and JAWS detail what it’s like to fight past the perils of being a hype band.
Neu tips exciting new music from Shura and Vaults, while in reviews, we deliver verdicts on new releases from DFA 1979 and Gerard Way, both of which are absolute giants.
That’s not forgetting one massive announcement (you’ll notice we’ve hidden a part of September’s cover - that’s for a reason). On September 5th we’re sharing news on something very big and very exciting - you’ll have to wait until then to find out.
DIY’s September issue is free from all our usual stockists from Friday 5th September. Pre-order a physical copy with a DIY tote bag below if you’re not near a stockist / outside of the UK.
