Oh yes, another issue of MRR is out and ready to take the world by storm! Check out the November issue — MRR #354 — for the latest and greatest in punk and hardcore! Bay Area hardcore ragers REPLICA tell us their story so far and discuss what it’s like today for women in hardcore, Swedish hardcore punks the VICTIMS share part of their extensive European Tour Diary with us, Kevin from Girth Records discusses punks in academia and his label based out of Geneva, NY, and MÁXIMO VOLUMEN look back at punk a few decades ago, in light of their 1992 demo reissue. And there’s more….
We also have Massachusetts bands ANCIENT FILTH, who play back-to-basics hardcore discussing their recent tour and EP, and grind menaces BEARTRAP on how their multifaceted project works. We also have Canadian punks with an edgy twist OHMWAR, Bay Area post-punk enthusiasts SYNTHETIC ID; Finnish garage lady-rockers the SPLITS, and Brazil’s old-school USHC skaters O INIMIGO. Plus, of course, the most extensive reviews in punk and all the columnists you love to hate!
MRR is contributor-driven, which means that we rely on punks like you for content. You don’t need an invitation to be a part of what we do.
For review and radio play consideration, send two copies of vinyl or one copy of CD-only or cassette-only releases to PO Box 3852, Oakland, CA 94609, USA. Send us the final version of your record—we do not review digital releases, test presses, or promo CDs.
We will review everything that falls within our areas of coverage: independent punk, garage, and hardcore. This means no major labels or labels that are exclusively distributed by major-owned distributors. We reserve the right to reject releases on the basis of content. Music without vocals or drums will not be considered.
Every record that is reviewed is added to our archive, the largest collection of punk records in the world. Please allow two months from your mailing date before following up to ask if we’ve received your submission.
We are always looking for interview, scene report, guest column, and photo submissions. Submission does not guarantee publication. In order to improve the chances of your submission being printed, please read our FAQ.
In addition to records, we also review independently published and produced zines, books, and movies. Please send physical copies to PO Box 3852, Oakland, CA 94609, USA. If you have a streaming link to your film, or if it is playing in the San Francisco Bay Area, please email the information to firstname.lastname@example.org.
