Featuring, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, The Big Moon, Sorry, Mykki Blanco and more!
Let’s just get it out in the open: here at DIY, we bloody love Yeah Yeah Yeahs. For full context, back when they opened for LCD Soundsystem at the first All Points East festival in 2018, we all went along as a team and, during their set, genuinely had a bit of a transcendental moment. So, when the iconic trio finally announced their return earlier this year, we were positively giddy with excitement. And you can probably just about guess how thrilled we are to finally have them on the cover around the release of their 5 star (count ‘em!) new album ‘Cool It Down’. So without any further introduction, we give you our October 2022 cover stars, Yeah Yeah Yeahs…
They’re not the only DIY faves you’ll find in our pages this month: we get reunited with The Big Moon, who we joined on the road last month, talk life and death with Sorry around the release of their new record, and speak to the musical pioneer that is Mykki Blanco. Elsewhere, we catch up with Toronto’s Alvvays as they make their highly-anticipated return with ‘Blue Rev’, chat to Dublin quartet Gilla Band about their new scorcher, and bring you our round-up from DIY’s long-awaited Class of 2022 tour, featuring the one and only Yard Act.
Plus, we’re bringing you our verdicts on not one, but two of this month’s - nay, the year’s! - biggest albums; Arctic Monkeys and The 1975, while in this month’s Neu section, we get to know your new favourite bands Special Interest, Lowertown, Humour and Dead Pony that little bit better.
Talk about a big month! Our new October 2022 issue is available to read online right now, and, you can order your very own physical copy of the mag and it’ll come whizzing through your letterbox in the next few days.
