In the magazine May 2017
With Paramore, Perfume Genius, PWR BTTM, Pumarosa, and more.
Paramore are back, and we’re delighted to have them grace the cover of DIY just ahead the release of their newest album ‘After Laughter’. As Hayley, Taylor and Zac prepare to unleash their fifth album, we head to Nashville to find out how the reunited trio overcame yet more hurdles to bring the album to life.
It’s part of an absolutely jam-packed issue, too. We catch up with PWR BTTM out in Austin, Texas to talk all things new album ‘Pageant’ and Liv’s ambitions to become “a yoga mom”, while Perfume Genius spills all on new album ‘No Shape’ and his love of Rihanna. Pumarosa, meanwhile, are gearing up to release their debut album ‘The Witch’, a sprawling first effort that reflects the beauty and toughness of life in London.
We also get in the van with Superfood, King Nun and Pale Waves to spend three days on the buzziest tour of the year, discovering just what makes Dirty Hit the most exciting label in the process.
Elsewhere in this issue, we catch up with those crazy cats in Gorillaz, who tell us all about their new album ‘Humanz’, before joining the brilliant Black Honey for three of their most bonkers live shows yet. Plus, loads more - trust us, it’s jam-packed!
