Magazine 236.1 Against Me (3/08) #14763
THE ORAL HISTORY OF THE MIGHTY MIGHTY BOSSTONES
They reconvened this past December for the 10th annual Boston-area Hometown Throwdown and fans have started circulating an online petition to get them to tour again. This month, we learn how the Mighty Mighty Bosstones went through a lot of ups and downs (and beer) to become the beloved ska-core icons they are today.
TASTE OF CHAOS
The Rockstar Taste Of Chaos Tour celebrates its fourth campaign across North America with ATREYU, BLESSTHEFALL, IDIOT PILOT, AVENGED SEVENFOLD and BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE in tow. In addition, this year’s “winter Warped” is detonating a J-Rock explosion of the East’s best new bands, featuring MUCC, D’ESPAIRSRAY and THE UNDERNEATH. Plus, we’ve uncovered more Chaotic plans for the future...
THE FAN ISSUE WITH AGAINST ME! & TEGAN AND SARA
As we go into 2008, we are guaranteed of three things: Music-industry schills will always claim things are bad; the internet will always provide a forum for people to anonymously vent their hatred; and there will always be bands who stir people’s hearts. The last reason is why we chose to profile both the strident Florida punk delegation (p. 114) and the charismatic Canadian twins (p. 124) in this month’s issue. If you’ve ever seen either band live or spent some time with their music, you’ll realize we couldn’t choose just one “fan favorite” for this issue. In addition, we also offer a look at fan clubs belonging to both bands and labels, to learn how many decibels you can get for your hard-earned, world-market-devalued dollars.
BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE
Bullet For My Valentine have worked hard to become a success story in the British metal scene. Despite this, they’re still learning how respect can be somewhat of a begrudging thing.
