In the magazine July 2023

Featuring Queens of the Stone Age, Ashnikko, Blur, PVRIS and more.

For as long as most of us can remember, Queens of the Stone Age have been worldwide festival mainstays, their swaggering riffs and doom-laced brand of rock on show for the more hedonistic among us. But over the last few years, cracks began to appear in the band’s solid foundations. Now, as the quintet return with their eighth album - the defiant ‘In Times New Roman…’ - we speak to Josh Homme and pals about some of the darker moments that have defined the more recent years, and how exactly they’ve strived to reignite their love for life, music and everything in between.

Elsewhere this month, we step inside Ashnikko’s new dystopian fantasy world to discover more about her debut full-length ‘WEEDKILLER’, we rendezvous with old favourites Be Your Own Pet as they ready their first new album in over fifteen years, and we learn a little more about what Blur have in store for us with their new album ‘The Ballad Of Darren’.

Also in our July 2023 issue, PVRIS’ Lynn Gunn talks trusting her instincts on new record ‘Evergreen’, Do Nothing guide us around Nottingham and reflect on the challenges that came with their debut, Best Coast’s Bethany Cosentino explains the inspiration behind her new solo album, and Georgia offers up a dose of euphoria, with her latest LP.

Plus, we’ve got profiles with some of the buzziest new acts around - aka Picture Parlour, Chappell Roan, HotWax, and Lifeguard - and there’s all the action from this year’s Glastonbury Festival, including *that* final Elton John set.
