Here Come The Interrupters: Welcome To Punk Rock's Coolest Family

Everything The Interrupters have ever got, they’ve had to fight for. Luckily, the band bringing ska-punk back are tougher than most. Ahead of their UK return at Slam Dunk Festival next month, we join them in New York City to hear how the unbreakable bond that saw them through the lean years has set the course for punk rock salvation…

Plus, wind down the days until festival season kicks off by sticking a celebratory Slam Dunk art print by the ever-awesome We Three Club to your wall, and staring at it until the May Bank Holiday weekend comes around…

Elsewhere in the mag this week: as we brace ourselves for next month's epic Slam Dunk, Kerrang! catch up with founder Ben Ray, while also unveiling three more bands, this year's stage times and amazing competition! On top of that, Papa Roach hero Jacoby Shaddix bares all in a soul-searching K! Interview; we look at Columbine and how rock became embroiled in a national tragedy, 20 years on; and Canadian gang PUP take us inside their gloriously, hilariously glum brand of punk.

In the reviews section, meanwhile, Black Veil Brides frontman Andy Black lays some of his own ghosts to rest on his second solo album, and Nirvana's 1991 Seattle show gets the vinyl treatment for the first time. On the live front, new supergroup Simple Creatures bring balloons and bangers to their London debut, Bristol metal crew Svalbard bring the intensity to the seaside, and rising Welsh rockers Dream State raise spirits and show promise of glories yet to come…

There are six amazing posters, too, featuring: BABYMETAL, Bring Me The Horizon's Oli Sykes, Larissa Stupar of Venom Prison, Deftones, Rammstein, and Panic! At The Disco's Brendon Urie.

All this and more is available in the new issue of Kerrang! – which you can get anywhere in the world when you order online through But for UK residents, it hits the shops on Wednesday, April 10 from all good newsagents.
