In this issue we have a HUGE feature on Slam Dunk Festival as they celebrate their 10th anniversary. We have interviews from We Came As Romans, New Found Glory, Miss May I, Memphis May Fire, Every Time I Die, & MORE who all tell us how excited they are to be heading over to the UK in May for this fantastic event! To add to this, and in an attempt to cover every band on the line-up we have added a list of further bands that you shouldn’t miss out on when you’re there. Festivals like this are very important to the alternative rock scene in the UK, so please make sure you support it!Our main feature comes from Funeral For A Friend, who give us a bittersweet interview as Matt Davies explains what we can expect from their upcoming last ever shows, as well as what this journey has been like for him as the frontman of this highly influential band. Funeral For A Friend dominated the rock scene in the UK as soon as they released their first chaotic EP entitled ‘Between Order and Model’. With every album they’ve given us something completely different, and just progressed in an exciting way. They’ve left the world with an impressive back catalogue of albums, and they will surely be missed by many.In our talent features section, and kind of running in parallel with the comic book world that is currently taking our cinemas by storm, we get to catch up with Steve Englehart, David Baldeon, Ramon Rosanas, Vanesa R. Del Rey, who all tell us what it’s like to work on comics, whilst shaping the way we see our favourite characters on paper and screen. We also had the privilege of heading to Walker Stalker Con recently, where pretty much everyone from the hit TV show The Walking Dead headed down to London to discuss their time on this iconic series, so please don’t miss out on that review!There are many MORE interviews to read including The White Buffalo, Black Stone Cherry, Hatebreed, Crossfaith, as well as our in depth reviews section! So we hope that you’ll enjoy it, and we’ll see you at the end of May to get ready for the mighty Download Festival!”
