#345 March 2017

Machine Gun Kelly lives to play, plays to win and keeps his hunger burning. Members of Blink-182, Pierce The Veil and others share their visual art; plus Can’t Swim, Creeper, Sorority Noise and more!

MACHINE GUN KELLY
When does an underdog finally get on top? Ask Cleveland-based hip-hop phenom MGK, and he’ll tell you that when your hunger dies, so does your soul. Good thing for us he’s still sitting at the table.

FEATURES
ART ATTACK! THE ARTISTS IN YOUR FAVORITE BANDS
Fans are just as stoked to see visual manifestations of their favorite bands’ creativity as they are to hear them. We asked members of BLINK-182, EVERY TIME I DIE, PIERCE THE VEIL and NECK DEEP to share both designs and philosophies on their non-musical art.

CAN'T SWIM
Chris LoPorto took a deficit of musical ability and a personal heartbreak and channeled them to create one of the scene’s best new bands.
Interview by Evan Lucy

CREEPER
This British sextet occupy a sweet space between spooky goth and high-velocity hardcore. Get on their pirate ship or die bored.
Interview by Cassie Whitt

CAN'T SWIM
Cameron Boucher has seen plenty of sadness and death in his life, which makes his band’s output seriously compelling.
Interview by Jesse Richman
