The May issue of Maximum Rocknroll, #408 is here!
Things kick off with the future of Berlin post-Deustchpunk — MÜLLTÜTE, and then we hang with Gainesville shoegazers UV-TV, we discuss Scandinavian hardcore with Minneapolis’ ATAXXIA, uncover the history of Wales’ hidden gem REPTILE RANCH, and hear about Truewave with SF’s own STREET EATERS.
We also learn about bobos and squats with France’s ZONE INFINIE, and round things out with Boston peace punks PANDEMIX, Costa Rican grindcore band EXACERBACIÓN, and the debut of a harm reduction column. All this plus tons of fresh zine, record, and film reviews. Get yours now!
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 email@example.com.
