Hot off the presses, MRR brings you its November 2013 issue — #366! In this issue of Maximum Rocknroll cover artist Halsey Swain lets us into her world of nature-inspired obliteration, we dis-cover the “New Wave of Grave New Beat” pioneered by Scotland’s THISCLOSE, and NOLA booking collective No More Fiction tells us about booking queer-centered shows in their town and organizing their rendition of the Not Enough Fest. We catch up with Chad, the lead singer of Pacific Northwest hardcore fuckers NUDES, L.A. punkeristas DESTRUYE Y HUYE give us insight on the LA scene and talk about their upcoming tour (maybe they will come to your town?), we talk with Vertical House Records about their label, store and show space in Huntsville, Alabama, and noize punkers CHAOS DESTROY share the secret behind their twenty releases (glue? speed? or do they just naturally shred?). International anarcho post-punk band ROSA APATRIDA talks to us about their experience as a political band in the NYC punk scene, Finnish rockers RÄJÄYTTÄJÄT are back from tour and dish us the details, Canadian thrashers TARANTUJA give us an update after their European tour, and the Bay Area’s own hardcore crashers PERMANENT RUIN talk West Coast tour advice, San Jose, and the secret to a bullshit-free lifestyle. We also take a photo tour across the US and Canada with Claudia Cebrian as she hits up all the summer fests and meets all the punx! All this and much more, including guest columns, “What’s the Scoop,” “New Blood,” demo and zine reviews, plus the most extensive record reviews in printed punk today to satisfy your hunger!
