Tell your boss you won’t be coming in today, the latest Maximum Rocknroll is here! Issue 427, our December 2018 edition, is filled to the brim with the content you crave. We’ve got New York’s CHOKED UP and long-distance band JABBER dispelling pop punk myths and New York’s GIANT PEACH and Melbourne’s THE SHIFTERS on the importance of place (whether it’s your home or another country!). Vancouver’s LIÉ and long-distance band MARRÓN both discuss the effects of fascism on music, while Montreal’s PINK NOISE and Boston’s ANCIENT FILTH dish on their long, long histories as bands. Not enough? Why not check out THE FUNS’ pontifications on living and working in an abandoned funeral home in Illinois, or take PROTO IDIOT’s advice on lowering your expectations for touring the UK, where they live. And if you’re still looking for more, we of course have the best columns and reviews in the game! Order today to make sure you’re the first on the block to get the latest, greatest issue of the best punk magazine to ever exist… Maximum Rocknroll!
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.
