The 50 best albums of 2022
The Kerrang! verdict on the 50 albums that shaped 2022.
The Interrupters are back! The Los Angeles ska punk titans have confirmed details of their new album In The Wild, and shared lead single In The Mirror.
The full-length – the follow-up to 2018's Fight The Good Fight – is due out on August 5 via Hellcat / Epitaph Records, with the band sharing that, “We put so much love into this album. Produced by our very own Kevin Bivona, this album takes you on a journey throughout Aimee’s life and every song is a deep delve. We recorded almost the entire record in our home studio during the lockdown which as we all know was a turbulent time for everyone. The making of the record allowed us to have purpose and to rid our closets of all the skeletons lurking. Humbled and honored to have features from Tim Armstrong, Rhoda Dakar, Alex and Greg from Hepcat, and The Skints.”
Meanwhile, Aimee Interrupter explains of new track In The Mirror: “I fell into so many self-destructive patterns trying to come to terms with my childhood. I spent so long trying to run from the pain. No matter how far I ran, there I was… I realised I needed to make peace with who I saw in the mirror.”

The Cover Story
When lockdown hit and bands were forced to face a new reality, Aimee Interrupter was confronted with an old one. Reckoning with the trauma of her past, The Interrupters’ vocalist faced her demons head-on after years of turning away, coming out the other side to create the most introspectively powerful album of their career. Trigger warning: Physical and emotional abuse.
