Slipknot’s Clown breaks down Knotverse: “It’s a way for us to be as close to you as possible”
​​Slipknot’s foray into the metaverse was only announced this month, via a partnership with Sandbox, but it’s been a lifetime in the making. Inspired by the early days of playing the video game Quake online via dial-up internet with friends in different parts of the world to the creativity that came from editing the source code, Clown has always been interested in how communities can work together

Jenna McDougall continues her mission of empowerment through new solo project Hevenshe
Jenna McDougall is starting from scratch. Her band, Australian pop-punk outfit Tonight Alive, went on hiatus in 2019, wanting to take a break from their rigorous international touring schedule to focus on their mental and physical health. “When Tonight Alive went on hiatus, it was a really high priority for me to start figuring out how to write for myself because it felt like the first opportunity

Gino Vento: “Everybody has a story to tell, and so many should be shared”
For Gino Vento, the intersection of music and acting has more similarities than you might expect. Vento discovered music at a young age, and by the time he entered high school, he began to play in several local bands in the Miami area. However, it wasn’t until he formed his most notable project Thick As Blood that he began making a name for himself worldwide. Afte...

THE BLSSM manipulated genre and emotion to create their ‘PURE ENERGY’ EP
If there’s one thing Lily Lizotte loves more than making fantastic pop music, it’s a good double meaning.  Planted in nearly every song by THE BLSSM — the 24-year-old’s self-described blissful pop project — is a feeling of both happiness and sadness, competing with each other through lyrics that mean one thing and a chorus that sounds like it means something else entirely. It’s hard to tell what y

LIKE A VINTAGE POLAROID, there exists a portrait of Post Animal’s latest record that rings clear in guitarist Jake Hirshland’s mind. “My image of this record is walking from the house that we were all staying in at the farm to the barn that we were playing in, in the middle of the night, and hearing reverberating through the open space of the natural world,” he says from the group’s touring van,

State Champs are cementing their legacy with ‘Kings Of The New Age’—interview
Pop punk is well and truly back in fashion, with a brand-new face and a fresh perspective on the legacy of the generations that came before it. While it may not look or sound like the same scene that regenerated a decade ago and mysteriously lost favor in recent years, there is one simple message for the bands from the genre’s past iterations: adapt or perish.  ...

Silverstein are today on tour supporting headliners and best friends Beartooth. Outside, fans are already gathering in anticipation of doors opening; backstage, where Told connects with Alternative Press, it is quite possible that Silverstein themselves are e

KILLBOY: “I have a fire inside me that ignites when people tell me not to do something”
***This article contains sponsored content*** The most important thing there is to know about KILLBOY is that she doesn’t give a fuck. If she hadn’t been this way, she’d have never started making music in the first place, refusing to let the opposition of her conservative family deter her from engaging with the creative outlet she saw as a means of rebellion. That attitude wo...

FOR BONNIE FRASER, 12 MONTHS of COVID-19-enforced downtime away from touring was a huge wake-up call; the moment that she realized how lost she had become in her band, Stand Atlantic, and the lifestyle that comes with it. “I’m, like, addicted to it,” Fraser says today over Zoom from her bedroom in Manchester, England. “I lost complete sigh...
